Increasing ME3's save limit - SUCCESS

Postby KidzComeOut » 12 Nov 2012, 17:36

FINALLY the big mystery cracked. A special thanks to a retired Epig Legion for helping me figure this out, and a big thanks to WarrantyVoider for his invite and continued support, even though he was ready to smash a porcelain vase on my head. The below screenies are from the unedited SFXGame.pcc. Change the values in hex to whatever you want :). SFXGame is the only pcc you need to edit.

and with that, let's celebrate early Thanksgiving with a heartwarming gesture, from a husband to his wife.

LOL.

Well as long as we found the bastard variable, even if we edit it via Hex directly, it's a proof of concept.

All the pretty-ass GUI and stuff will be done after the core functionality is done, and getting the core operational means going through Hex, throwaway tools, ugly GUI...

Kinda makes me wonder... why did they lower it to 50? What do you get with that?
