Using this for 3ds game. Edits I'm saving are reverting??

Post by Ghostlander » 01 Jun 2017 22:10

So just to preface, the first time I made an edit it worked. I put the file into the game save folder and the changes were made in the game.

However, I'm following the same steps and it's not working. I take the file and decompress, use hxd2to edit the values I need, save, then recompress what I just ssved, and put it in the folder. So I load up that save on the game and...no changes. I get frustrated and take the file from the sd card and decompress again and open in hxd...and the changes have been reverted ! What the actual hell?

I've done this several times to make sure I wasn't messing something up.

Besides the specific game information, which I obviously don't have, here a general reply/ideas:

Was the file really changed before you recompressed it? Make sure you are actually adding the changed file in the archive.
Exit HxD and reopen it with the supposedly changed file, to make sure it is actually changed before you recompress it.
