pascal89 Posted August 9, 2009 Share Posted August 9, 2009 Start with lots of spiceThe following archive includes Dune saved games with over 393 tons of spice in stock, which should be more than enough to pay the emperor and buy weapons and other goodies from smugglers without the need to have troops dedicated to spice extraction. The save games were made early in game (at a point where you normally have only a few kilograms of spice). Get it there: Dune savegames.7z (more info) http://44554762.linkbucks.comHexadecimal cheatsWith an hexadecimal editor, you can quite easily edit some characteristics of your troops: Motivation: convert the current motivation to hexadecimal. For instance, a 100% motivation would be saved as 64 in the save file. Number of fremens in a troop: divide the troop size by 10, then convert to hexadecimal. For instance, a troop will 2540 men would be saved as FE in the save file. Equipment: see the sub-section below So, with your hexadecimal editor, open the saved game you want to edit (make sure you save a backup first!): DUNE37S1.SAV or DUNE37S2.SAV (37 is the number corresponding to the game version, it may be different for your version). Search for the values you want to edit, knowing that troops information are located approximately in the last third of the save file, and that the structure for a troop is like: ...X[motivation]XXX[equipment][population]X...(Each X represents a byte, motivation is 4 offsets before equipment, which is right before population).  Equipment cheatThe [equipment] value is a bitflag (here listed as decimal values [hexadecimal value]) where: 1  = not assigned 2  = bulb 4  = atomic weapon 8  = weirding modules 16  = laser guns 32  = krys knives 64  = ornithopter 128  = spice harvester So, to give all equipment to a troop, set this value to 254 [fe]. This cheat generates a minor bug: the equipment is registered as troop equipment, but not as sietch equipment. This means that if you unequip the equipment you added, it will vanish. The solution to this bug is to move your troop to another sietch, which will register the equipment for the sietch.I think you can even edit the harkonnen troops to make the game more difficult.I have edited the file. Leto is now willing to follow you lolSource: http://ecd4f37f.linkbucks.com 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
