    RELEASES


    it's time to clean a bit, you can download the savegames from crash 1, 2, 3 all open 100%
    i let the crashedit38 app but be aware, only crash2 is complete in this program.
    i'll fix the app soon to have the saves as the savegames.


    the savegames are compatible savegame PC if you change filename from MACK to ALCHEMYXSAVE.
    In PC you can change the top time name
    switch pc
    1rst 00,00,00 any 00,00,00

    i may let the option in prg, but just be aware in switch that doesn't appear.

    the PC file size is 75k the switch file size is 150k
    pc can read switch but switch can't read pc files (without change)

    i may and did sometimes change the time in crash 1 the 1 rst level best time is 20 seconds, the 2nd is 21 etc .. (was usefull to find the stuffs)
    it's better in any case to don't go playing online


    the savegame 0 is the temporary for crash 1
    1,2,3 are the next tiles

    the savegame 4 is the temporary for crash 4
    5,6,7 are the next tiles

    the savegame 8 is the temporary for crash 3
    9,10,11 are the next tiles


    !!!! in ANY case , don't forget to save your savegames !!!

    And a Huge thank to Martek for the previous savegames

    GRR...I have no idea how to use this sadly. I load up Edizon and select my game save, it just says "Save Game Editor Goes Here"

    ok you need to backup to your sd card the savegame using Edizon,
    in Edizon, choose the game, and push X to backup

    put the sd on your pc, edit with HxD editor the data, wath out if you enter dec or hexa.
    save and put the sd card back, Edizon again and push y to restore. Choose the file and it be be restored.

    run crash and load the correct save game.

    that's it

    Here you have my save file with 1 green gem. I couldn't find the address for the gems as well. In the next week I will try to create a save slot before collecting another gem and save to another slot after collecting it. This will allow us to identify how this is stored

    Ok, I did it a little bit faster :D

    I uploaded a new zip with the following content:

    MACK_1.sav: green
    MACK_2.sav: green, yellow
    MACK_3.sav: green, yellow, purple
    MACK_0.sav: green, yellow, purple, red

    But still I can't really see where this information is stored. Maybe you have more luck

    Nice work. Once i worked out the offset, i managed to change my lives from 3 to 99 using HxD editor :)


    I couldn't work out where the values for the coloured gems are located though

    the offset depends where you save the game.

    "tal_count.[...K.......!.......crash1/l126_thelab/l126_thelab................Bð.."
    at 0000021E there's the level where the savegame was made, the lenght of the string of the levels are not allways the same, that's why there's some time a offset...
    but you know how many lives you have, and it's esay to look around the adress given for the live the others will have the same offset.

    the level is before the name so it don't change (as far i know) i'm working on this to make this more simple...

    if you use a thelabs save the yellow colored gem is ED8B with a value of 40 instead 00 the green EC27 with a value of 10 instead 00 the others are more tricky but i'm on it.

    here's where i am now:


    to have theses adresses: find 09 00 0A 00 0B 00 0B 00 0B 00 0B 00 0B and at the 09 adress add 8A2 to find the 1rst E843 green



    E843 green 08
    EBDF red 20
    EC33 purple 10
    ED97 yellow 40

    my gues is the colored gems are ^2 08*2 = 10 , 10*2 = 20, 20*2 =40
    so the missing one have or 4 and 2 / or 80 and 100

    Here you have another save were I played the first crash bandicoot to 100%. This will allow us to identify the other two gems.

    MACK_0 and MACK_1 are identical in this version.

    BTW: You can change the lives even to "FF" so 255. The game will work as usual but you will not gain any lives within the game until you lose enough lives to pass the 99 limit.
