X-Beyond the Frontiers Saved game editors?

Post by DeLoreanLover » Thu, 8. May 08, 19:54

Is there any way to change the amount of money in X-Beyond the Frontiers' saved game using some kind of an editor? :? :roll:

i think CJ (now left) had some hex editor on his site which someone may still have the file for but it's been a while...

explains the credits cheat better than the one you were looking at.
You'll need a hex editor like the great ( & free)

There was a better cheat than just credits cheats though, a program that allowed
you to change the performance of any ship type.
Long gone from my disk though, can't even remember the name or author.

Are you talking about the author of the editor or the actual game itself. :lol:

Personally, I never saw the need for extra money in X-BTF. Credits were plenty easy to come by once you built a couple of factories. I might understand it more if you were playing X-Tension, the so-called expansion to X-BTF. There were a number of editors developed for that game that bypassed the cheat-protection code in the game. But for me, all I ever added was Mike Kessel's great mod for X-T, that added so much more to the game. In fact, when I think of X-T anymore, it's always Mike's mod that I'm thinking about. I wouldn't replay it without it. :D

410DD is 5 digits, so 266461 credits,
I think there's this divide by 100, ie 2664 so search for 0A68 ?

Not sure what Grimm refers to, the author?

I think I was thinking of what Nanook said, ie X-Tension had the
modding program, as well as Mike Kessel's mod.

I don't know the details, but if you need to convert decimal to hex notation the Windows Calculator can help (if it is installed).

See Start-AllPrograms-Accessories-Calculator.

Then click View and click Scientific. Enter your number and then click Hex.

Click Dec to change back.

Hmmm, confusion...

70CF5 hex is 462069 decimal, which divided by 100 is similar to your '4630.69' credits, was that a typo on the 2?

If you have 4620.69 credits I understand you should be able to find
in your file the hex of 462069 i.e. 070CF5

"this should be in your file near the location BC90,
- also repeated further up as well, you have to change it in two places"

But it seems there can be complications:

what are you using to search the file with?

There's also a game-save with loads of money already in it at

Nope, it was written by a chap called StoneD. I'm afraid I've no idea where you can get the editor now though, as both CJ's site and the site it was archived to are long gone.
