FF8 Save game memory location
« on: 2013-09-16 14:40:37 »
Does anyone know where FFVIII keeps its save game in memory? Every time I think I find it the memory structure is wrong.

If you have a copy of the save map from actual save you should be able to do a quick search? Saved data files should be uncompressed.  Just save somewhere, get the save data with hex editor, and search memory for same shit.  8-)  if you can't find it I will have a look too!

I know how to find it, but I don't have my discs. The location's not documented anywhere.

yeah, I thought it was a bit odd you were asking. If no one else arrives here soon I'll check for you:)

In ePSXe save states, the save memory structure starts at 0x779CA with the checksum (2 bytes) and followed by the 0x08FF constant (little-endian). If you have trouble finding, you can search "Wos_jj" (= Squall), it is located 0x18 bytes after the beginning of the save data.

I'm on PC, but I did find that text string. That does make sense because I thought the place where that text is stored was significant.
