Download seems to be broken, gets to 100% then stops without actually finishing citing the connection to the severs has been reset, any chance of a re-upload or a Mediafire/RapidShare/somewhere else upload?

Hi Tekkie,

I used a download manager to get it, not sure if MegaUpload has something wrong.

Anyway, I uploaded it on my web hosting in case of someone hase troubles with MU : Hyne v1.3 (http://aladore3viii4.free.fr/files/FF8/Hyne_v1.3_win.zip)

I've been toying around with Hyne tonight, and it really is magnificent. I have a couple suggestions, though :

- in the cards tab, you can check the boxes in front of the characters' cards (like Squall card, Laguna card, etc), but it doesn't give you one in-game. Is there any way to add a character card to one's inventory, without having to find the person holding it and win a card game from him/her ?

- also, if you want to get all cards or all items, it can be a pain to check all the boxes and type 100 next to each one. Would it be possible to add two buttons : one to get one of each item / card, and another to get 100 of each item / card ?

Aside from those two points, this utility is perfect IMO !  :D

After you check the box, you have to look right of the name, select 'Squall' from the drop down box and then it will be in your inventory!

Post by: endlessdamage on 2010-10-18 05:36:07
I was wondering if there was anyway to change the names of the other characters in the game (Quistis, Zell, Irvine, or anybody other then Squall and Rinoa for that matter) I feel as though if i could get my hands on the source code for FF8 it would be quite simple, The fact that you cannot change the names tells me its not a variable, its a constant and therefore, it should just be a matter of finding where the constant is ( 'cstr_char3' or 'cstr_zell' for example) which should be quite easy, as you should declare all constants in the beginning of your code. That leads me to believe it would be as simple as changing what that constant is set to, correct?

Now i have a running theory, if anyone can confirm or deny that would be great, but I am going to test it late on tonight. I am curious as to whether or not when you change the drop down box next to the character or GF card, if it changes who you win the card from..? For example, Edea has her own card, but she is near impossible to beat at times because she is a great card player, and also has all those rules. Now if you check the Edea card box, and you click the drop down box and select anything but Squall or Edea's House, lets say i choose, B-Garden Headmasters office. Then would somebody in the Cid's office then have procession of the card? Or would you still have to go win the card from Edea?

Post by: endlessdamage on 2010-10-30 11:18:44
I do have a question, I understand that when you put it into advanced mode i believe you called it? Well there are a lot of unexplained things, and that is fine. But this doesnt say unknown.. If you go to character, and you go to edit Squall. Click the limit break tab. And next to Renzokuken indicator, there is a selection slider, from 0-127.. What exactly does that do? Does it edit the frequency a certain ending shows up, or, actually I have no idea. So if you know, please tell me. If not I get that its impossible for everything not to be as perfect as your coding is =]

EDIT: I apologizes. It isnt only in the advanced mode, its always there.

Hi. This looks like a nifty program and I've been trying to use it but when I do I get the message

"VMP Format is protected, save will be partial and will not work."

and after I save it and try to play it on my PSP, the save file is gone. What should I do?

I don't usually post on forums but I'm having issues operating your program on Linux. I'm running Linux on vmware off of my mac. I have the ff8 disc and the game plays perfectly but I do not understand how to load and edit a PC save or a save that I make in-game to hyne. When I load the save it doesn't let me add new characters or save whatever I do in hyne. Im still learning to use Linux. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Foreach playable characters:
 - 0: normal

This values can change during the game, so they are temporary, and this works for all battles, but not for each fields...

The file type of my save files is .vmp. When I ignored the notification, and tried to run ff8 and load the file, the saved datas were not there. good thing I had back-up files. can anyone help me with this one?

the dialog clearly states the changes won't work. the vmp format and the psv format are protected with a massive checksum that has not been broken. this is why you can't save them. there is one way but you need a lot of stuff.See ps3/psp saves  (https://sourceforge.net/p/blackchocobo/wiki/FAQ/#psp-and-ps3-saves)

I found out that there are some file types like the .mcr file that can be edited without any problems but the .mcr file won't be read by the psp right?  I have a .VMP to .MCR converter but is there an available .mcr to .vmp converter? so I could convert my saved files from .vmp to .mcr, edit it then I would just convert it back to .vmp. If there is one, it could be of great help.

Did u read what i said the CHECKSUM FORUMLA IS NOT KNOWN* therefore any changes you make to a vmp file are saved to the file but the checksum is not going to be updated. the psp will reject the save as invalid. if you really want this feature i suggest you get to work on cracking that forumla the only way i know that works for sure to get a save back on a psp is in the link i provided you .that should work an ANY psp firmware as it gets a real checksum signed on to it. i don't know if you can do it with custom firmware because i don't have a psp (but anyone who does not want theirs is welcome to send me it, same for a ps3 don't have one of them either..). Before we stray further off topic please start a new thread if you wish to discuss this further. i know i don't like ppls filling my thread w/ the same questions over and over. (read back thru the whole thread this is a question that comes up a lot here and on the BC thread)

It's because you need to import something you already saved on. You must have played and saved. It must also be a FF8 save. Make sure you import the good type of file. It either has to have nothing or .mcr at the end.

Sure, it's a good idea, I recently watched the Japanese character table, I could perhaps use it, but it takes a lot of work to recognize all the characters (for me, poor French :p).

Here are the Japanese tables:
(http://s3.noelshack.com/uploads/images/5461482707109_fontjp.png)
If you want you can copy the characters in UTF-8, I'd love to include them into Hyne.



Ok, so degeneration = trade rule points

Quote
----------------------
#2.4  Trade Rule Points
----------------------

After a card game (you can also just quit), trade rule points can (see section
#3.2.10) increase by a random amount, from 0 to 7.
If the resulting value is greater than 250, it's reset to 0.

The higher the trade rule points are, the higher the probability that a
random region's trade rule will be set to One. (see section #3.2.10)

You can find out the approximate value by talking to the Queen of Cards:

0 to 127: No changes to her speech.
128 to 250: Will give a shortened speech and mention that the trade rules
            are moving towards One.

Squall's PSM is always gone when open slot and do nothing and save.
Others will be gone when their entry is opened.
When entry is opened, their PSM is displayed, but PSM never saved to file.
Switch to other entry and revert, it's gone from display.
And, no effect if I re-add PSM on Hyne.
On select slot window, PSM not displayed.

I know why, it's also true for 逃, 堂 and 約. I will release the next version quickly, and there is a new text to translate...

I update Japanese file.
hyne_ja_9_23_2 (http://island.geocities.jp/b_temhote/ff/hyne_ja.html)

And, this is a just report, not problem.
Same character duplicated in table.
1A C8 : 記
1B A1 : 記
Both are effective on game.
Hyne always uses "1A C8 : 記".
If "1B A1 : 記" is exist in save, Hyne changes to "1A C8 : 記".

Thank you for your modifying. It works greatly.
Hyne is a first FF8 save editor that can use Japanese ideograms.
It is a epoch.

I had done some mistranslation and typos in Japanese file.
Fortunately, mistranslation strings are not used in current Hyne.
And typos doesn't make serious problem.
But, I corrected them. Please use this for next update.

The next version can edit many more things (72% editable).

Current changelog:

If we take into account that ~702 bytes are unused in the savemap, Hyne 1.6 can then edit 84% of the savemap.

I'll add some values​to be edited in version 1.6 (level, weapons, hps, id...), but I do not know much about the 64 bytes available.

Edit: I almost forgot, i have a request (if possible of course) any chances you can add some sort of button on the magic tab to delete all magics, because it happened to me that i had to many magic spells (weak ones) so i didnt have space to store more magic spells (stronger ones) and it was kinda annoying going through each magic, selecting "-" as if none. If is not possible i'll just have to stick with the ol' fashion choose & delete. xD

Okay okay, I should explain how to do your research. Firstly, CHOCORPG is compressed, in LZS. Secondly, it's not necessary to understand all the bytes for saves, just the bytes between 2 and 66 (64 bytes):
(http://s3.noelshack.com/old/up/chocorpg_search-e88ccf9436.png)

To compress/uncompress CHOCORPG, you can use ficeLZS (http://mirror.mypage.sk/ficedula/php/programs3a9a.html (http://mirror.mypage.sk/ficedula/php/programs3a9a.html)). It's a command-line tool.

First of all, than you for this program, just what I was looking for! This is a wonderful editor and I'm looking forward to the future releases. Keep up the good work! =)

However I have one (hopefully) small request for the upcoming releases (I'm using 1.5.1 atm). I noticed that when you add new abilities to your GF's, they are always automatically 'Completed!' and cannot be edited otherwise like the abilities the GF already knows/can learn.
Would it be possible to have an option to edit the AP of these added abilities too so that they can be learned while playing the game? For me it's fun to have my perfect abilities list waiting while having to see a little effort to achieve them, haha.

Anyways, thank you in advance!

Sorry, this is not possible, everything can be done for gf abilities is already editable with Hyne, we can not do more because FF8 does not allow it.

i was going to respond to your pm but since it is a global issue with mac os. ill just put the info here::

Why:
for some reason when packaging up hyne for mac os , apon running the macdeploy script (it puts the qt dependcies in the app bundle.) after doing that the program no longer runs. so in order to have a working program i had to pack it up with out the Qt files.i was going to attempt to fix it for the next version of hyne.

Fix...
 you will have to install the qt  in mac os. use this link to the mac os installer (http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/qt-for-open-source-cpp-development-on-mac-os-x) (myst6re please add a note to the first page)

on a side note, im not sure if this affects makou reactor also if someone could test (before installing the qt libs)..

What do I do now?  I'd like to use the program, but I'm at a loss for the next step

You are very welcome, of course. I was playing using the program today, and I was wondering something. One thing I've always wanted, is to have like, the perfect Junctions.


My question is, I notice you have about 75% of the savemap... What are the possibilities you can add more stuff to the stats to edit. Meaning this, I want 100% ST-J Defense, and what I have junctioned right now is: Holy Reflect Esuna Dispel. Everything is around 45-80ish percent. What do you think the chances of you being able to implement an option to make all of ST-J abilities to be 100%?

You can't make all to be 100%, not with Hyne, the only thing you can do is put Holy twice but it's not safe.

That's what I was thinking. I didn't think putting the same twice. I figured it would be dangerous. Thank you for confirming! =D! Do you know how I could make them all 100%? Since you said Hyne can't do it, do you know of another program that can?

this is an awesome save editor! thanks for all your hard work :)

i have a question: how does the Field section work? i tried changing the Game Moment on one of my existing saves but when i loaded the save my game progress didn't change :(

FYI, i'm using the US version and am playing via POPS on my PSP (CFW 5.50 Prome-3)

any help would be appreciated!

In fact the game moment does not affect your game progression, but just one variable used by the game to know when you are in the story.

thanks for your quick reply!

i see you have some field work in your TODO section. do you plan on supporting true game progression in the near future?

also, do you know which offsets correspond to the other variables used for game progression or are they part of the 25% unmapped portion?

thanks again! :D

They are part of the 25% unmapped portion indeed, but with my field script editor, I could understand all other variables. The real problem is that there are many, and make a clear and usable editor would be really difficult.

Do you have a Gameshark Pro or Action Replay or other device that plugs into your PS1?  If so, you can find ways to transfer memory files.  If not, you'd have to purchase one of these devices.

If you have a PS2, you could plug your memory card in it then transfer the data this way. How to do it is explained in the FFX tool thread. Search the Tools forum and you'll find it. Sorry I can't link to it, I'm writing from my PS3.

My question is: Is there any way to modify your player location? Like for instance, I'm currently in Esthar, and there is no way out. I want to go back and do a couple of things, mainly get the Tonberry GF.

Yes there is, but it's not easy to do. Otherwise you can get Tonberry later.

@myst6re I have another question, if I download a psx emulator, play ff8 on that emulator, if I save the files, would the file types of the saved files be the same as the saved files of the psx?
Title: Re: [1.6] Hyne - My ff8 save file editor
Post by: myst6re on 2012-05-09 22:24:43
A save file = a memory card. Often the save file data from an emulator is exactly the same format than bytes in your memory card.
This is true for the following format: *.mcr, *.ddf, *.mc, *.mcd, *.mci, *.psm, *.vm1
Sometimes there is just a header at the beginning (for example, the GME format contains an user description).

Hey I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I've been playing FF8 on my PSP for a while and I wanted to use your program to get a few things I can't get (stuff from the pocketstation specifically, and I was having trouble getting marlboro tentacles) but the PSP won't read the save. Is there a way to use a modded save on my PSP (which is not modded in any way so I can't use any homebrew...)

Read the wiki (https://sourceforge.net/p/hyne/wiki/Home/), there is no other way for now.

That's what I figured. Oh well I got the tentacles finally I guess I just gotta deal without mog. Do you know if there's a tool to transfer save files from a PS1 memory card to PS3? I have the PS1 gameshark so I can get stuff that way...

Hi! Haven't fully tested Hyne yet but I love what it does.

My question is: The "Bonus" section in the Character tab, do those have the same effect as the GF character abilites such as 'Mag Bonus, Str bonus' and so on? Like if I put 1 point in Hp bonus under Squall in the Character tab he will gain an extra point of HP each time he level up?

No, these are values directly​added to the stats of the characters.

There's one problem I noticed. During the seed mission, I changed the battle model of Zell and Seifer to Laguna and Kiros. When it got to the point to switch Selphie for Seifer, Seifer(Kiros) disappeared from my main group, and instead of getting Selphie I didn't get anyone. Selphie went in the bottom group with Quistis with no way of bringing her into the group. I don't know if it's anything you can fix, but I figured I would bring it up.

Edit: I ran through again and this time with Seifer in my party the whole way. Once it switched Seifer and Selphie it worked out correctly.

Awesome program, I've used it to knock my characters back down when they gain too many levels early!

Struggling with getting the alternative costumes to work, got the box ticked for Squall for example and tried every combination "Locked 1" and "Locked 2" either ticked, unticked or both ticked/unticked and I'm still wearing his normal clothing.

Any help you can give would be great, thanks!

The FAQ for Black Chocobo that sithlord48 linked to in this thread, which describes how to get edited saves working on PS3/PSP, seems to be deleted.  It says "replaced with New Wiki Page", but I can't seem to find that page.  From what I can gather, there is no way to get an edited save file working on PS3 without the help of a hacked PSP.

I got it working on my PSP (I haven't tried going to the PS3 yet), I'm running the US PSN version of FF8.  Here is how to do it; if you have a different version you might have to make some changes.

1 ) You need a hacked PSP (I'm using a PSP-1000 with 6.60 PRO-C)
2 ) Install the CWCheat  (http://pspslimhacks.com/cwcheat-2-3-released/) plugin
3 ) After creating a save file in FF8, open the CWCheat menu (hold Select for a few seconds)
4 ) Go to the Memory Card Management menu
5 ) Choose "Save Memory Card [1/2] to Memory Stick" (choose whichever one has the save file you want to edit)
6 ) Copy the file from the PSP at /seplugins/cwcheat/mc/SLUS_00892-0.mcr to your PC
7 ) Edit the file in Hyne, and save it with the same file name
8 ) Copy it back to the same folder on your PSP
9 ) Load up FF8 on the PSP, go into CWCheat, and choose "Load Memory Card [1/2] from Memory Stick"
10) In FF8, save again, this will write the hacked save file into the protected .vmp file.

If you want to play it on your PS3:
11) Transfer the save game from the PSP to your PS3

Hmmm, I just tried out the editor, but I can not get it to work..... for some reason neither epsxe nor my ps3 seem to recognice the changes.
although i was sure the ps3 would give me an error it just copied the changed file but like i said it did not change a thing. same for epsxe. but when i reloaded the changed save, hyne recognized the changes. I tried changing char-levels, owned cards, card-rules, items, weapons, everything at once, just one at a time, save after every little change, save after i hanged everything together nothing worked....
oh and the game has the id slus-02082, which was also recognized correctly...
so yeah i do not know what i did wrong......

Darn, my original post got deleted due to the Database issue.

This tool works great for the PSP PSN version as well. You do need CWCheat however, because it messes up with VMP files due to the security/hash on it.
Use a converter to convert the .VMP save to .MCR, then mod all you need, and put it back on your PSP in the CWCheat/MemCard folder. From there you can safely load it without issues.


I was wondering if it's also possible to change other character's costumes? (Like Rinoa's white dress).
I'm not sure what Locked 1 (Switch Menu) / Locked 2 (Switch Menu) stands for... Maybe it's one of those.

Would be cool to play the game in their SeeD uniforms too.

But yeah, awesome work, best editor out their hands down.

I think that in-game scripting make only default clothes available on most screens. So you'd probably have to modify game data as well. But I can't be positive on thay, and won't be able to guide any further.

It's impossible, as Aladore say,  and "locked" are for the PHS menu, when you want to change your team in game.



Quote from: akodinito
I am using windows 7 and when I am trying to export a pc save file with the latest version of Hyne (1.6.1), the program crashes. I have read above that you have fixed crashes. Is it possible to release this version?

Quote from: myst6re
Do you use the File > Export... menu or the context menu in the save list? I think you can try with the context menu (right click on your save, export to PC save...).
The next version coming soon.

Quote from: akodinito
I'm trying to export my pc save files to .vm1 from Files menu, then Export. Exporting to any other format also crashes the program.

You can using the 1.6 version, normally it doesn't crash. Or wait for the next version (I think it'll be ready this week-end).

Looks like I cant reply to it (too n00b on this forum I bet), but sorted. I have no qualms donating - while practically (and sadly) FFVIII is irrelevant nowadays, the ability to use my saves and do the impossible and reverse that farce is hugely symbolic. Thank you again. I even began to knock up my own memory card image parser (https://github.com/OmegaPhil/memcard-analyser) to start to attack why FFVIII+pcsx-rearmed didnt want to use the saves (for reference, just saving without any change in Hyne is enough to fix the saves from the images).

Just when I finished the extract functionality, I thought to google for a save editor (my brain was thinking about memory card images), and I immediately lol'd when I found yours.... about a million years beyond whatever I was planning.

Hi,

I have an issue when I play after I used Hyne.

I'm in the second dream of Laguna, at the first fight with Estharian soldier, the ennemy appears, but my characters (Laguna, Kyros and Ward) don't. I tried to play a fight before the dream with Squall's team and it worked. I think it's because of the save because when I check Ward's weapon, it says 'e' instead of his weapon 'Harpoon'

Any ideas ? Or do I have to restart, nota long time lost but still.

Edit: Don't bother, I fixed it. I remember I changed the Unknow 2 field in the Unknow region in 'Miscellenous' ? (between CHocobo World and configuration, sorry I use the french version), I put the 32 like I see in an other save and it was back to normal.

Hi guys, great forum that I have only just discovered...I am a long time lover of FFVIII and recently downloaded it on PSN.

I really want to get a save state that gives me all the cards, lots of money and all GF skills completed (but not available). Basically I want to play through the game without having too grind too much and just enjoy it... To be honest I have played the first disc so many times I want to fly through that as quick as possible.

My only problem is that I don't have a PSP to convert the save into a proper .psv file that will work in my PS3 and can't find anything suitable anywhere to download.

Can anyone please help me with either of these save states that would work on an Australia (PAL) PS3 console.

The perfect save I am after;

- Start of disc 2 with all GFs having completed abilities (so that when I acquire them I don't have to grind AP)
- All missables up until that point collected.
- lots of money
- enough cards that I don't have to play triple triad unless I want too.

If that is too difficult then I'll compromise for a start of D1 save point with the same stuff.

Definitely happy to donate to the cause if someone can help me out with this...Will give like $20 to someone who can do what I need!

In FF8 PC 2013, saves are located in "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VIII Steam\user_*\", you can edit *.ff8 files with Hyne 1.8 and the metadata.xml file will be automatically updated.
Hyne can also open slots, like the standard FF8 PC version. If you have two versions of FF8 installed, you can choose your version in "Settings -> PC Version".

Excellent! Thanks for your hard work on this one  ;D

There is just one thing. I downloaded it and tried it out, but when i am trying to load my save file, the launcher has deleted it...

Is there any way to disable this horrible Square-Enix launcher?

Well, I'm afraid I do not have a solution yet. You can maybe disable Cloud saves (game properties in Steam).


Hyne 1.8.1 released ! (https://sourceforge.net/projects/hyne)

No, this is not a joke, I found a [insert some synonyms for 'stupid' here] bug which cause a bad update of the metadata.xml file. So please update if you use the 1.8 version.

Normally modified FF8 Steam save files are not deleted anymore.

For those of you using hyne on linux (and not using my ppa (https://launchpad.net/~sithlord48/+archive/ff7))

here is tarball with the 32-bit and 64-bit linux builds containg the binaries and the translation files. if you have Qt 4.8+ on your system it should work just fine.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxqH9L8_QubjN1lOLUJMcWxZS00

and A Mac Os Version is availble as well the binary is 64bit only.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxqH9L8_QubjaURVT2llTDVzTkE

anyone intrested in source code can easily get the 1.8.1 source from

http://sourceforge.net/p/hyne/svn/HEAD/tarball?path=/tags/1.8.1

hopefully myst will make me a release technician for hyne (makou and deling) so i can just upload the files directly to sourceforge.

Setting 255 of magic in the editor and the result in game.
I attempted to share a portion of magic across characters, as you can see the amount is quite incorrect and has the additional effect of breaking magic casting in combat.

Using a save editor is not a safe action, you should know that, but I can limit this amount in standard mode.

I currently work on an 1.8.2 version which may resolve some related problems. Do you have a "user_[some_numbers]" directory in "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VIII Steam"? Have you several "FINAL FANTASY VIII" entries in the uninstall program list?

Thanks for the reply myst6re and no, i don't have any user name and stuff like that. But no worries myst6re, i've just found out an alternative way to make the game not delete my save game. I use these steps to make edited file playable without being deleted, in case you need it:
1. Edit the save file and save as normal
2. Make a copy of the save you just edited to somewhere else.
3. After the intro square soft, square enix, the edited save file will be deleted.
4. Alt + tab out of the game, copy the save in step 2 to the  "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VIII Steam".
5. PLAY the edited save file.

Be sure to have the rights to create folders in the program's directory. Maybe try to run Hyne as administrator, also? ("right-click on Hyne -> run as administrator" under Windows).

I guess it could also tell you that if you have really no memory left in your hard disc, but that's doubtful. I think it's definitely a problem with rights.

derp...  didn't mention im on OSX (mavericks).
I've checked the properties of the program and related directories and changed all under my user to "read and write".

I've also done the "repair disk permissions"

edit:  I've done every repair and rebuild of permissions I could google.  Still errors with "Can't create temporary file"

Hello, myst6re . This is my first post and I am new to these forums.

I am having an issue with the Hyne Final Fantasy VIII Save Editor. I downloaded and installed Final Fantasy VIII Steam Edition by the iNLAWS. And their save data is stored in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Final Fantasy VIII\iNLAWS\remote” as “slot1_save01.ff8” save files. When I open one of these up in Hyne 1.8.2, modify something, and then try to save it, it says:

(http://i1293.photobucket.com/albums/b598/BentoBoy1/ScreenHunter__zps20890871.jpg)

And there is no metadata.xml file in there to be updated. Is there any way around this? Is it possible to get one from another source? I really, really want to be able to use this program.

ePSXe has been updated twice since savestate support was added to Hyne. It's possible they changed their savestate format and Hyne was never updated to match; I dunno for sure, I haven't used ePSXe in years.

I can't fix this problem, but I do have a possible workaround: in ePSXe, save your game at a save point, and use Hyne to convert the memory card file instead.
Title: Re: [1.8.2] Hyne - My ff8 save file editor

Yup, I see. Because sometimes in game it's too long to meet a save point and I wanna save at the point that is close to the  tripod player :d. So, it can not be possible.
Thanks :d

Nope, there is no changes about save states. My file analysis is not really clever, I'm looking for memorycard header at 0xBC42, and for data at offset 0x779CC. Sometimes there is nothing here, sometimes data are in other places.

(Note: my offsets are for uncompressed save states, there are gzipped)
Title: Re: [FF8PC/PSX] Save editor - Hyne (1.8.2) - Accessing Enemy Spells
Post by: chocoboy on 2014-07-30 02:59:25
I'm not sure if this has been asked before but, would it be possible to give characters access to spells that enemies cast, like spells already accessible to characters. In particular, I think it would be awesome if Gravija was usable (really like the special effects too). It seems like, from the way enemies cast it (i.e. the same character casting motion animation sequence occurs for Gravija as does for Thundaga, Firaga, etc) that it's potentially a spell that could be cast by playable characters. I would suspect from a programatic perspective that one would need to identify the place in memory assigned to that particular spell and then create an entry for it in the spell inventory lists accessible for each character.

I'm not familiar with the layout of the spell inventory lists that Hyne modifies but, in addition to identifying the areas corresponding to Catastrophe and "The End", I wonder if a spell stock entry for Gravija also exists? If so, that would be awesome. Thoughts? Or are spells like Gravija too disconnected from character castable spells to even attempt a mod like this?

Post by: myst6re on 2014-07-30 07:47:00
Catastrophe and Selphie's limit break are considered to be like magic spells. There is no place in the savemap to set an ennemy ability to a playable character.

Post by: Krade on 2014-08-03 23:41:18
Hello,
I tried using Hyne to convert a FF8 PC Steam game to FF8 PS1 PAL and I noticed the game clock increased by 16.66%. It seems that taking a FF8 PS1 PAL save game and converting it to either FF8 PC or FF8 NTSC (Japan or US) removes 16.66% of the game clock and vice-versa.

I didn't look around to check, but given the percentage of the skew, the only explanation that seemed reasonable to me was that this happened because the clock value isn't stored in seconds in the save, but rather an amount of ticks that depend on the refresh rate, meaning the PAL number will increment at only 83.33% speed when compared to a NTSC/PC game, but Hyne will keep the original value without conversion when converting between save types.

Since Hyne displays the game time of both FF8 EU and NTSC/PC saves correctly, you obviously already figured this all out a long time ago, since you take different calculations into account for either PAL or NTSC when reading saves. Any chance Hyne could also convert the clock value when converting between PAL/NTSC save types as well, though?

Thanks,

Ah, I see. That's only for adjusting how Hyne displays the date, though, it doesn't really help between correctly converting a save between PAL and NTSC. Other than selecting the original FPS, writing down the value, switching the FPS to the new value and reassigning the time, that is.

did u make a new save or just export your ps1 save as PC? the second one would be best todo there is alot that can go wrong with save editing. seams like you might be off the walkmesh slightly . that location might need to be fixed. OR your controller mapping is bad because of your save not sure if it happens in FF8 but with a custom controller map it can happen in FF7. so if you are exporting and did change the buttons in your psx copy try reseting the controls first then exporting.

In the world map the monster by Balamb are lvl 50 to 100. But the monsters in the fire cave when level 4 or 5. why is this?

Normal enemy level calculation :
- 50% chance of it being "active party's average level"*0.8
- 50% chance of it being "active party's average level"*1.2

Non-optional Bosses have a level cap (which varies from one to another).

Some places use a different formula for enemy level calculation :

- Fire Cavern : enemies are always level 5 (except Ifrit who is 6)
- Lunatic Pandora (disc 3/4) : enemies are always level 1
- Deep Sea Research Center : normal formula + 15 level
- Island Closest to Hell/Heaven : enemies are always level 100
- Ultimecia Castle : random level
- Omega Weapon (PS1) : always level 100

Um, I'm wondering what the precautions you should do prior to making edits on a save slot?

Back up is a must, but is there anything else? I'm thinking on trying this program to add some items that would take a long time to grind for. If I make a new "test slot" it shouldn't affect the other slots, right? Playing on steam version. Also thanks for this, it seems like a awesome program.

New member, hi there! Now here comes a bit of an odd scenario, but I'm sure the FF8 save game gurus can handle this ;) Playing the steam release of FF8 on the big screen and loving the game as much as back in 2000. 

Now...since I travel a lot I'd like to be able to move save games from PC to my Vita (FF8 PSone) for the road - and back to PC/Steam, when I'm at home!

Here's what I tried: Used Hyne to export "slot1_save01.ff8" to VMP format, which my Vita handles and using the "Connection Manager" to import. The Vita stores saves in a folder called "SLES2082" (European PSN account) and under the file name "SCEVMC0.VMP". However, renaming the exported "slot1_save01.ff8" to "SCEVMC0.WMP" results only in the "No Save Data found" on my Vita.

Any ideas? Thanks guys :)

the vita like the ps3 use a signature to prevent tampering . please see the black chocobo faq for more info.

http://sourceforge.net/p/blackchocobo/wiki/FAQ/#psp-and-ps3-saves

if you can do one of those work arounds you can get it on the vita. if not you have to wait untill someone figures out how to sign the files.

Just pulled the SVN code

So you compiled Hyne yourself? What have you used to compile ts files?

Post by: JustPassingBy on 2014-11-27 22:30:56
Theres no cmake or autotools files so it was a simple 'make -j 8' job, running inplace - I did this previously (I was on this forum a year ago, looks like they erased my account since). Other than the language it seems to run fine.

Debian Testing machine here for reference.

you need to use qt linguist to "release" the ts files or you will not have .qm files generated.

Right, I see what is going on now - being English this is very unusual for me - even though it was completely translated from French before, its only partially translated now, so I'm getting a partial English/French interface.

Have read the README and clearly its a little more than just make... sorry.

I have finally reached looking into this - the continuing failure to translate all strings, even when the English ts file is almost complete (testing the master branch).

It is some sort of encoding screwup - pretty much every string in the source that I can see with an accent or cap is not translated in the GUI (but the French characters do render properly so 'QTextCodec::setCodecForTr(QTextCodec::codecForName("UTF-8"));' is taking effect).

I have spent a few hours working on this problem, and the best I have so far is the following from an lupdate *.pro call:

================================================================================

lupdate warning: Codec for tr() 'UTF-8' disagrees with existing file's codec 'ISO-8859-1'. Expect trouble.
Updating 'hyne_en.ts'...
    Found 1660 source text(s) (0 new and 1660 already existing)
    Kept 5 obsolete entries
lupdate warning: Codec for tr() 'UTF-8' disagrees with existing file's codec 'ISO-8859-1'. Expect trouble.
Updating 'hyne_ja.ts'...
    Found 1660 source text(s) (0 new and 1660 already existing)
    Kept 4 obsolete entries

================================================================================

There are definitely some bad strings in the ts file (obvious double-width characters), and a quick check in the source shows that bad text is around - e.g. MetadataDialog.cpp in MetadataDialog::build(), the HelpWidget constructor call (http://sourceforge.net/p/hyne/code/ci/master/tree/MetadataDialog.cpp#l36).

I plan on Thursday to kill off all bad characters in the ts file to see if this makes a difference.

This is a Debian Testing machine, so UTF-8 has been standard for about 12-13 years...

Hello JustPassingBy, I think the problem appears since the migration to Qt 5.
When I started the project, few years ago, I used the default encoding (iso-8859-something) in Qt Creator on Windows (I though it was the best one... no it was totally toughless).
But in Qt 5, UTF-8 become the standard, so I needed to convert every source files. And it works on my machine.

I will check ts file soon, maybe I missed something.

Yes please.

I updated the code, one file was not correctly encoded, but ts files seems correct.
Please note that I use git now, and the svn repository is not up to date.

Hmm, wonder why I've been looking at the svn repo then. According to the git log, you've been using git-svn, which suggests you're still using svn? Or perhaps thats how SourceForge exposes a git repo by running git-svn in the background...

Yeah I had found that previously, hence the command output I pasted originally.

However with this new git clone, doing lupdate *.pro, lrelease *.pro and then copying the .qms to the build directory, I finally have a fully translated interface! I had already reached this point yesterday, so I don't know what has meaningfully changed aside from starting afresh again.

So tomorrow I'll see if I can compare my two FFVIII saves to try to work out what bits to flip to restore Omega Weapon and Ultima Weapon again :)

since your running debian have you tried to use my daily ppa version?

you can add it by editing your sources.list(see below)  then if you want you can import the keys from the ubuntu keyserver to remove the annoying can't check package signing warning.

Code: ( add to sources.list) [Select]
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/sithlord48/ff7-daily/ubuntu trusty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/sithlord48/ff7-daily/ubuntu trusty main

hyne and others on the daily ppa are built anytime there is a code change.  so if you submit your fix as a pull request on hyne and myst merges it you will just get an update for hyne that contains your corrections :)

Thanks sith but myst6re is right - building from source is fine for me, I actually finished work with my Final Fantasy VIII saves a month or so ago, its just taken this long to reach this investigation task.

So, another repo again! Well, I certainly prefer github to Sourceforge so thanks, will switch to that. I managed to revive Ultima Weapon - with the HexaEdit Field tab, byte 15D (row 150 14th byte in) has been changed from 20 (in the save just after killing him) to 4 (save just before the battle, where 10 steam units are available).

I'll test this on a separate save now.

Edit: Works - currently Hyne only has the moment editor for Field data - where would be the most appropriate place to allow users to fiddle this value?

Final edit: Revived Omega Weapon too: Field data, byte 76 (row 70 7th byte in) ab -> 2b.

This temporary file is normally created in your user temp directory, but there is a bug and it is created on the current directory. On MacOSX it may causes problems. The next version will fix this issue.

Hi,

Is this problem still alive? I am wondering if it's possible to bypass this one by creating manually the temporary directory in the right place for Mac OS X?

Thanks a great tool.

Well, I am a user of Japanese, there is a trouble.
I have installed two types of PC version, one thing in English released in 2000.
http://www.ign.com/games/final-fantasy-viii/pc-11737
The second is that of Japanese released in 2014.
http://store.jp.square-enix.com/category/DL01/SEDL_1021.html

Then I will call a save data of the former [ENG] and a save data of the latter [JPN].

When I import a [JPN] in Hyne 1.8.2, the name of Squall, Rinoa, Angelo, and GF's is garbled.
Would you mind to improve this?

---- Supplement ---
[JPN] was stored once in the format of the PS-type (JPN), this phenomenon does not occur when I load it.
Correct Japanese is showed.
[ENG] reads is okay.
"garbled" is mistake of latin font table and jp.

So it's a phenomenon of when reading the PC-type data, but I'm not yet able to keep track of the source.
Can not be added the handling data as Japanese to reading of PC-type data ?

[JPN] will be saved under :
%UserProfile%\Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VIII\jp
Folder name "jp" I feel that distinction about [ENG], but how about you?

Thanks reply.
Because My poor English may fails to explain the problem correctly,
I uploaded some pictures.
(http://i.imgur.com/cwpwGWe.png)
"Incorrect" shows now status.
"Correct" shows what saved once in the format of the PS-type (JPN).

The name entry is "zt{ag}]", not "スコール".
By font table, "ス" of Japanese goes same point "z" of latin, and others so.
So, Reading data is not missed, but it's not Japanese font table.


Mcindus
What you are saying Tonberry makes the accuracy of textures better, no?
FF8 released in 2014 in Japanese is same one released in 2013 at Steam.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/39150/
So, it will not be result like you expected.

I did:
1. Unzipped TonberryEnhanced2.02.zip to "C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY VIII\".
2. Put ProjectEden_hm.csv, ProjectHellfire_hm.csv, SeeDReborn_hm.csv to "tonberry\hashmap".

You will also need the textures for those mods.  I would try these mods to test:
 ProjectEden, SeeDReborn (which is for the English release, so it might not work), HorizonPack (world textures upscale), and Lunar Cry (an enemy upscale).

Here are the links:
Project Eden (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15292.0) (This is a 1.3gb download)
SeeD Reborn (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15320.0)
Lunar Cry (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15977.0)
HorizonPack (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15859.0)

(Project Hellfire isn't out yet... you can download rufoos textures HERE (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15668.msg223269#msg223269) but his Shiva is naked. The project hellfire hashmap that you added should work for that, too!)

Put all of these textures into: "C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY VIII\textures"
Put your hashmap files into: "C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY VIII\tonberry\hashmap"
Put the LunarCry objmap into: "C:\Program Files (x86)\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY VIII\tonberry\objmap"

If after doing this, you have better field backgrounds, text, upscaled enemies, or a naked Shiva, it worked.   I think it will work because the Japanese release is the same as the Steam version, and it works great on Steam.  If it works, I will start -immediately- on a Japanese version of "SeeD Reborn" and "Tripod".  Arigato!

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but it's not everyday I get someone from Japan to test things for me :)
Please private message me if you can so we don't have to litter this thread.  Thanks!

I'm totally new to all this... I don't know what's going on. I have the Steam version of the FF8 and have Windows 8.1. I pretty just downloaded and extracted the files to the desktop and every time I try to open the application, nothing happens.

First of all: Great work! I love it :)

I downloaded Hyne because I want to continue playing the Steam Version of FF8 instead of using an Emulator on my iPad.

Problem:
Now I have created a save file which is a perfect copy of my original savestate (no cheats, I hate them). It took me hours.
The only problem I see so far is: a) Although I chose Seed Level 8, It shows no Seed Level at all (like before you become Seed in Disc1) AND I can't do any Seed Tests to increase the Seed level.

And what about Side Quests? I mean the Shumi, Winhill, Chocobo and CC-Kings Sidequest (which is very important because I need them in Disc 4 on the Ragnarok). Do I have to re-do all these Side Quests?

Anyone here who could help me with this issue? Thx. :)

Do you try to convert the save file from your emulator to the PC version?
Normally, you only need to open and convert your memory card file from you emulator.

You mean I can use my PSX save (from the Emulator) and convert it into a save file which works with the Steam PC version?

Then why the hell did I create a new save file? It took me hours to create a perfect copy....:(

How does the conversion work? I open the Emulator Memory Card in Hyne. But how do I save it as a Steam Save file?

EDIT: I managed to make it work. It totally changed the time played but I don't care as long as all my items, magic, progress etc. remain unchanged.

Really a great tool. :)

Hey All,

First off, just wanted to say that this save editor is amazing.  I spent a few hours looking over the code, and it's truly great - thanks so much for making this. I was actually brought to the forum because I wanted to create the same thing, then I realized someone else already did it =] I have two questions though:

1.) How did you find out how to decode all the save data? There's a few variables and whatnot that you haven't figured out yet, but most of it you've managed to figure out how to decipher and manipulate, and I think there's WAY to much info for you to just and have trial/error'd your way through it.

2.) I'm having some trouble using it: I have a save file from the PS3 version, and I wanted to transfer it over to use through the Steam version on PC. I tried putting the file into the directory, opening with Hyne, right-clicking and converting to a PC version.  That seems to have converted it, but even when I used the "Sign saves for the cloud" feature, I can't access the file from within the Steam version of FFVIII - it hasn't been added to any slots, and I don't see it in the meta data. I tried changing the name to slot1_save01 format as well, but no luck.  Once it's converted to PC version, how to actually access it from within Steam FFVIII?

I also tried simply copy/pasting the hex code between the two, and although select-all -> copy works, select-all -> paste doesn't.  It'll paste, but the formatting get's messed up.  I tried using Notepad++ as a middle-man as well to take out /n's but that doesn't seem to help either.

Finally, I tried simply creating a new PC save in Steam FFVIII, saving in Garden as soon as I leave the infirmary, then going into Hyne and changing every single value to exactly what's in my PS3 save version, including items, magic, etc to be exactly the same.  From Hyne's POV, they're identical.  Then I boot up that save in Steam FFVIII and the Garden is in the middle of the water (floating though...) and Squall is running below it on top of the water... I cannot enter the garden either unfortunately.  (If it helps, my PS3 save, Squall was in the field immediately outside Centra Ruins, and the Garden was next to him).  I checked the save file with Hyne and found out that all the values in the Position segment of the Party tab were changed.  I was running Hyne as administrator at all times, in advanced mode, and used the Sign Saves for the Cloud... option always as well. Everytime I change those values, I log into the game and find nothing has changed, log back out, and find the values were reset to something else (the same thing each time).

Any ideas? I'd love to get my PS3 save into Steam somehow since the graphics are so much better, and my PS3 is dying XD

Thanks for your time and help.  This is truly an amazing show of fandom and great clean code!

Hyne doesn't support world map position edit. Enter to advanced mode, go to hex editor and select world tab. Positions are 4 bytes and you can identity them by FF FF 00 00 like structure.

Hello majoras_masque, when I started this project, there were two existing save editors for FFVIII (character editor I think and Griever (http://qhimm.com/#griever)). The author of Griever, Qhimm, has published the source code of its program, and I started mine with the help of what he discovered.
The main difficulty was to reproduce the checksum code (used to validate the save data), the one from Griever is in assembly language, and I tried to code it in C++. (and I did it with the help of Cyberman).

After that, when you can edit a file you can experiment your changes. If you are looking for something (for example the amount of gils of the party), you know approximately how it is stored, and it is not really difficult to find matching values.

2.) I'm having some trouble using it: I have a save file from the PS3 version, and I wanted to transfer it over to use through the Steam version on PC. I tried putting the file into the directory, opening with Hyne, right-clicking and converting to a PC version.  That seems to have converted it, but even when I used the "Sign saves for the cloud" feature, I can't access the file from within the Steam version of FFVIII - it hasn't been added to any slots, and I don't see it in the meta data. I tried changing the name to slot1_save01 format as well, but no luck.  Once it's converted to PC version, how to actually access it from within Steam FFVIII?

Hmmm maybe Hyne won't add a save file entry in the metadata.xml. Try to start the game, save at the first point, close your game, replace the save file by your exported .ff8 file from the PS3 memory card, and finally re-sign.

Hi myst6re,

I started a new game of FINAL FANTASY VIII on Steam and somehow I made a mistake, I usually never make mistake like this... I'm on DISC 1 at the beginning, just before leaving Balamb Garden to go to Timber, and I wanted to do the second stage of the Zell Love Quest. But in the Library, the Pig-Tailed Girl is not there, I'm surprised because I clearly remember talking to her before going to the Fire Cavern, I remember her saying all the rules of the Library.
I guess I talked to her, then lost a Triple Triad Game and load a save, and forgot to talk to her again.

So my question is, using Hyne, can I set my current save to have Zell Love Quest Stage 1 validated ?

I didn't find any settings related to that, but I was wondering if another way exist, like using the advanced HexEdit feature maybe? And in that case, if you know what I need to change.

Thanks a lot for your fantastic tool and your help.

The Zell love quest is not editable easily with Hyne. Some infos are in the field vars sections (editable in the hex editor), you can find it in Deling editor (but you need to read and understand game scripts for that).
Title: Re: [FF8PC/PSX] Save editor - Hyne (1.8.2)
Post by: Amiral Benson on 2015-11-14 13:57:22
Thanks for your answer myst6re,

I just used Deling and wow that's an amazing powerful tool, but even if I managed to kinda find the scripts group of the BGU Library, I'm afraid it's beyond my knowledge and skills.

But maybe I also misunderstood the prerequisite for this quest, do I need to never miss a stage of this quest? Or will I be able to complete it later nonetheless? I'm confused, between the 1999 French Official Piggyback FFVIII Guide where there is very few details about this quest, and some of the best GamesFAQ Perfect Game Guides where there is all the stages described but where some scenes seem optional.

Maybe you can clear that up for me?

I think I played too much Triple Triad xD

I went back again at the Library and she was there in front of the counter, I don't know why I was expecting her either behind the counter or near a book shelf, and I was also looking to her name in the dialogue box, and her text for this scene is a dialogue between her and another girl, and for once there is no mention of her name "Pig-tailed Girl" in the dialogue box, so I don't know why I thought that girl wasn't her, I think I focused more on challenging everyone to Triple Triad...

Anyway, my bad, but at least this allowed me to discover Hyne more deeply and above all to try Deling, a great tool to avoid some laborious video compositing to create parody, etc.

Thanks for your time, your tools and help myst6re.

Hey, i have a question.

I used ''Scan'' accidentally on one enemy. I want to remove this now via Hyne save editor. Would there be any harm to my save file or any negative changes that will affect the game? Would there be any proof on my save file that i used a save editor to make this change? (when someone else is going to look it via hex editor for example).

What i want to do is: I just want to remove the scan information on this one enemy, thats it, no other changes will be made to my save file.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

Most of save file is untouched by Hyne, it changes only values you edit and checksums (mandatory to say that the save is not broken). But sometimes when you change values, this implies other changes. For your change, this isn't the case though.

And no one will know you used Hyne, except by reading your post here ;).

Thank you for the answer.

Just another question if you dont mind.

The draw points that are listed in Hyne, are the ones on the world map included as well? Do you included every draw point you can find in the game (doesnt matter if world map draw point or field draw point)?

Sorry for my english.


Title: Re: [FF8PC/PSX] Save editor - Hyne (1.8.2)
Post by: myst6re on 2015-12-28 18:51:21
Every draw points are listed, the first half is for field and the second half is for worldmap.
Title: Re: [FF8PC/PSX] Save editor - Hyne (1.8.2)
Post by: vergil2012 on 2015-12-28 20:29:39
Thanks again.

Is there a indication for which ones are one time only draw points that will never refill?

I know when i open my save file, if there is a one time draw point, i guess its the ones where ''completely empty'' is written. But this choice only comes when i already checked the draw point ingame.

What im looking is for a list (maybe in Hyne) so that i can check it with my save file if i used all the draw points that are one time deals.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

Hyne 1.9.0 released! (https://github.com/myst6re/hyne/releases/tag/1.9.0)

That is basically a minor update, but the Qt library was updated to major version 5, which implies some internal changes.

Unfortunately lanchpad fails to import to bzr (its interal code hosting) if your git project has ever had a submodule in any commit.  I will have to manually build the new hyne and upload it . not a big deal i just need to make a vm for it.

Ok, I cannot reproduce it, it seems that I forgot something when I build Hyne with the microsoft compiler. I changed the archive again on GitHub, it contains a binaries builded with the GNU compiler. It should works like previous version now.

Hi, thanks for the fantastic job. However, i've noticed that some of the values in the Chocobo World window are NOT what i'm seeing in the minigame. My lvl100 Boko has 31 HP (sorry i didn't bother making a ID 211 game), the editor tells me it has 49 HP. Also the item counts for all four ranks (A, B, C, D) are completely wrong.

Is there a way to physically change the location of your party through this?
Like, I know it can activate event flags, but I need to get out of the Dollet exam due to it crashing every time I finish it, and I want to change the location where I saved at  from the Comm. Tower to Balamb's hotel.
I know there's an option to change the location name, but it doesn't change the actual location (for me, at least)
Title: Re: [FF8PC/PSX] Save editor - Hyne (1.9.0)
Post by: myst6re on 2016-01-21 22:02:11
The physical location can be edited in the "Party" editor, but you need to know the map name (if not in worldmap) and the coordinates (X, Y and ID).
I advice you to find the location from another save. You can also use Deling (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=13050.0) (A Field Editor) to find a location precisely, but that is more complicated.

Well i'm afraid i don't know what i could do with this... i have basically 0 programming skills :o anyway, the Black Chocobo editor for FF7 (from a different author, i know) has a similar issue with hi-scores at Gold Saucer (i.e. i scored 20000+ points in Speed Square but the editor says all values around 4000~5000, among other wrong values)

ps: another question, but please nobody assault me or call me cheater: i played FF8 like normal, and i'm planning to quit it soon because i'm tired of it and don't want to do multiple playthroughs (i finish FF titles once every few years), also i dislike "challenges". I'm missing only the achievements for maxing money (i know about the trick), killing 10000 enemies (just super lazy) and the worst one: Contrived Finish, basically finishing the game with Squall at level 7. What happens if i edit Squall's level back to 7 (without caring about the stats) and defeat the final boss? Will the game think i'm playing a "no-level challenge"? Again, it's just a question.

I can answer your last question for the most part. Doubt people will call you a cheater since most here don't care about achievements to begin with. For max money, I'd just use the built in cheats in the game. It's either F4 or F5 you have to press ingame to max out your money. You can use Hyne to get the 10000 kills achievement. As for Squall at level 7, when I tried it, it didn't give it to me. But I also didn't let the scenes completely play out either. In the end, your game, your experience. :-)

Oh, i see. That's probably why. I got the achievement for beating the game sometime DURING the final movie. Probably when "Eyes On Me" starts playing.

first of all i would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this great project  :-D
so what i'm trying to do is down level my character's levels without effecting their stats.
i did some experiments with this, what i did is take a screenshot before and after lowering the levels and add the stats difference in the bonus section in the characters tab in hyne. now my squall is level 8 with level 11 stats.
(http://i67.tinypic.com/2d9cm8o.png)

TL;DR is there a way to down level without changing the stats, or show the actual stats instead of zeros?

Trying to figure out how the various fields work, specifically with the Triple Triad rules section. Namely, that despite setting the rules where i liked them, they keep resetting on their own even though i haven't talked to the queen or moved her.  Additionally, they'll change between back-to-back games with the same person.  It's super annoying to have to back out and save and exit, reset the rules, the go back in and play the next game.  So what does the field "Trade Rating" mean and what happens if i set the Queen of Cards location to the 0 entry from the dropdown?  Thanks.

Thanks for everything you do and also fixing this issue. There's something else I have an issue with though. I'm using the Steam version and for some reason something went wrong with some of the Laguna "flags" you can do by unlocking trapdoors. For some reason the third door (which contains the Power Generator) is locked for me. I didn't see an option in Hyne to change those flags and unlock all doors. Is there any way to do this I didn't see or is it not possible to find the fitting code?

Hi guys im wondering if I can use this save editor to help with my problem. I just finished the seed exam but for some reason my attitude score is 80. I am pretty ocd and dont want to start over I want that score to be 100. I have saves from before escaping dollet. I have no idea where the deductions came from (followed seifer instructions, talked to no one, saved dog, didnt go inside hotel, didnt jump off cliff, didnt make fun of zell) I must have accidentally talked to someone from balamb without realizing but my question is

Can this save editor adjust the score you recieve on your seed exam? thank you!

Sorry for asking this im not sure how to find that address. In HXD I would just click CTR G or F and type the address but using Hynn those shortcuts dont pull up a search tab and im not very experienced with Hex editing. How would I go about finding that address?

I feel dumb because you gave very clear and easy instructions sorry im not very experienced with this!

EDIT: So I was able to find the address by opening up a hex editor and searching that address and it worked it says 100 for attitude now ty!

However I seem to have 1 more problem normally receiving 100 in each category results in a lv 10 seed rank. Due to my attitude score being 80 i would receive a lv 9 seed rank. After changing the address the screen that shows your score says 100 in attitude category (and the rest of the categories were 100 as well) however I still receive a lv 9 seed rank. Would you be able to help me one more time by helping me figure out what changes I need to make to secure the lv 10 seed rank?

EDIT 2: Nevermind I have to beat the Bonus for seed rank 10 I was remembering wrong. Thanks for helping me with the attitude score!

I was poking around chocorpg.ff8 with a hex editor and Hyne at the same time, altering things and seeing what changed. I found out that, at least on my save - and I've restarted Chocobo world a number of times to confirm this - Current and Max HP are read as the hex values - ie, 18 as a hex value, despite working out to 24 in decimal, is read by Chocobo World and interpreted as 18 HP!

Also, the item counts for Class A and Class B items when I have no items at all in those slots are 17 and 130, respectively. I have searched in my hex file and either not found those values in either hex or dec, or when I did, altering them either broke the save or did nothing. At one point I had found the hex value for Class D items, marked it in my hexeditor and everything. And that used the hex values as well, same as the HP field - 63 in hex, which should have been 99 Class D items, was instead 63 Class D items. But when I came back to it later, after several saves of the game in the emulated Pocketstation, as I attempted to locate some Class A-C items to be able to search for them in the editor, that marked hex location was no longer the relevant one for Class D items. In fact, I have been unable to locate the Class D item hex value again, even after editing each 00 value to 63, one after another. I suspect the location of the Item hex values, as well as what they consider their '0' value, changes as saves are laid down. That's the only explanation I have. But take that with a grain of salt, as I noticed that well after midnight, so when more well-rested I may find the appropriate hex entry.

But I do know that Current and Max HP, as well as at least Class D items, are read naively from hex instead of being properly converted to a decimal. Why the programmers did this back in '98 is beyond me, as it sacrifices all the advantages of hex for storing large numbers, and in fact makes the numbers take up significantly more bits for each value - as well, they had to write the code so it would skip over 0A to 0F, 1A to 1F, and so on. Entering a proper hex value for the appropriate amount of HP actually causes the HP counter to display the hex, rather than any reasonable HP value. I have not tested taking Boko into battle with an invalid HP count, but I can if it would be helpful.
