To download ROMs and emulators for all systems, go to www.pe2000.net.

To alter the statistics of your characters through hacking into your save 
state (or .gs0 file), you'll need to go to Break Point Software 
(http://www.bpsoft.com) and download a program called "Hex Workshop." Once 
you're finished downloading and the program is finished running SETUP.EXE 
automatically, open Hex Workshop and use it to open any Shining Force .gs0 
files you may have.

NOTE: This Hacking Guide was designed for use with the Genecyst emulator, and 
was hacked with Break Point Software's Hex Workshop. This guide will not work 
with any other programs, as each one works with the save states differently.



Most of the questions I get anymore have to do with offsets – what are they, 
how do I tell what I'm editing, I don't understand hacking in general, etc.  
As far as I am concerned, the help Section is as thorough is it is going to 
get.  The only way I could explain it any better would be to point at the 
screen and say, "See that there?  That's what you need to change!"  Since I 
can't do that, you'll just have to be on your own if you need any help more 
detailed than what I have included below.

If you REALLY cannot figure out offsets and hacking on your own, read the Hex 
Workshop help file.  For the best explanation (with pictures), open the help 
file and click on the Find tab.  Search for offset, click on the first option 
(there should be four), and click on "How to Hex Edit" in the box below.  
Read over that very carefully, and you should have no trouble with hacking 
and finding offsets after that.  If you STILL do not understand, then odds 
are hacking is, quite seriously, not for you.  If you have reached this stage 
and do not understand, do not e-mail me, for I will not be able to help you.  
Do not ask me to hack files for you; I will ignore any request to do so.


Help!  Answers for commonly asked questions:

You don't use a cartridge in the Genesis for this process.  Have you heard of 
emulation?  An emulator is a program on your PC (or Mac) that you can use to 
play the games you have.  First, you need to download an emulator (Genecyst 
is the best, in my opinion) and Shining Force ROM.

Once you have both, load up the ROM in your emulator.  If you are using 
Genecyst, press F5 to save the game's state.  This will make a copy of that 
EXACT moment in the game, so when you load the state (F7) it will reappear 
right at that point.  Now that you have a save state file (.gs0 for 
Genecyst), load up the Hex Workshop program, load the save state, and hack 

This can only be done on the computer, when you are using an emulator (like 
Genecyst) and ROMs (in this case, Shining Force.)  Go to www.pe2000.net for 
ROMs, emulators, and how to use them.  If you already know, and/or are 
already using an emulator, then move on to the next paragraph.  Otherwise, 
get them so that you can follow the rest of this.

Once you are using an emulator, you may have found out how to use save 
states.  Basically, save states save all the details of your game at that 
exact moment.  Thus, you can use it more often, and faster, than regular 
saving.  For example, if you want to save your state right before making a 
choice (like a fork in the road,) if you choose the wrong path, you can just 
load up your save state and choose again.

At any rate, to begin hacking, go to the Breakpoint software homepage 
(www.bpsoft.com) and download a copy of Hex Workshop.  Load up your favorite 
emulator (whatever that may be) and make a save state.  A Genecyst save state 
will have the same name as the ROM, and will have the file extension .gs0.  
For Genecyst (the best emulator , in my opinion) press F5 to save a state, 
and F7 to load a state.  Next, load up Hex Workshop and load the save state 
(ex: sf1.gs0)  Use the "go to" command, which should be under Edit, to got to 
the offset you are looking for.  For example, if the offset is 90B4, type 
90B4 and press enter, and it will take you right to it.

Keep in mind that this all uses the hexadecimal system, which means that not 
only is there 0 - 9, but also A - F.  A = 10, B = 11, and so on.  This is 
called hexadecimal because there are 16 numbers instead of ten.

So, let's say that offset 24041 is the offset for speed, and you want speed 
to be at max (255, FF in hexadecimal).  Use "go to" to go to offset 24041, 
and then type in FF.  Next, save the data, and open the emulator again.  Load 
the state, and voila! the character's speed will be at 255.  Note that you 
can make as many changes as you want before reloading the state (not just 
one, as in the example), and that you should close Hex Workshop before 
reloading the state.

To find a particular offset easily, use the "go to" command in the edit menu 
(I think).  Remember, because of the hexadecimal system you can also enter 
letters from A to F.  For example, if the offset is 2041A, use "go to" and 
type in 2041A.  The program will take you right to it!  Also, somewhere on 
the screen (bottom right corner I think) a small box will say what offset you 
are currently on (ex. Offset: 2041A).

Now for the entering of values.  Let's say you want to change the Hero's 
attack to 99 (which is the max).  To do that, go to the offset that changes 
attack (I forget the number) and type in two number (or letters from A to F)  
The hexadecimal system is hard to grasp at first.  In the 99 example, 99 
become 63 in hexadecimal form.  In decimal (or standard) form, the base is 
ten.  This means that for a number (say 1429) each digit is multiplied by an 
increasing power of ten.  For 1429, it looks like this:

(9*1)+(2*10)+(4*100)+(1*1000) or (9*10^0)+(2*10^1)+(4*10^2)+(1*10^3)

with the carat (^) referring to the power of the number.  If you already know 
how to work with powers, I  apologize for repeating this basic information.  
As you can see, the powers of the digits increase at we go along.  In 
hexadecimal, the base is 16, not 10, so there are a few changes.  Here's what 
1429 would look like in hexadecimal:

(9*1)+(2*16)+(4*256)+(1*4096) or (9*16^0)+(2*16^1)+(4*16^2)+(1*16^3)

Thus, 63 in hexadecimal equals 99 in decimal because (3*1)+(6*16) equals 99.  
The highest number you can get with one offset is 255 (FF in hexadecimal).


Those new to hex and hex editors can read the following:
  - Typical hex editors display a file with "offsets" on the left of the
screen, "hex values" in the middle, and the "printed garbage" on the right
of the screen.
  - Offsets are the addresses. It may appear like this: 00000000
  - Hex values are the values. They may appear like this: E6 03 20 20 FF
  - The printed garbage is there only so humans can look at it. It's not
very pretty; it won't help you in most cases; don't worry about it.
  - This guide will represent the offsets in this format: #B9
  - The last number (0-9, A-F) in an offset is the COLUMN you need to go
to. So for the offset of #B9, go to the line "000000B0" and the 9th column
to the right.


  - For the different offsets, here's a Quick List of the most commonly
used values:  

"63"            for "99"        used for levels, item quantities
"FF"            for "255"       used for statistics
"03 E7"         for "999"       used for HP, Max HP, statistics
"0F 27"         for "9999"      used for HP, Max HP
"98 96 7F"      for "9,999,999" used for money or experience

When a character is promoted, their stats will go back to a certain point.  
Thus, if you have changed their stats before a promotion, you will have to 
change them again afterwards.

An easy way to get promoted early on is to set the character's level to 9 
(hex 09) and experience to 99 (hex 63).  That way, any attack that gets you 
experience will boost you to level 10, enabling you to be promoted.

In the magic modifier list, if a spell says it is a certain level, then the 
other levels below it come with it.  For example, Heal 3 also contains Heal 1 
and 2.

The maximum value for all the stats is 99, except for HP, which can be as 
high as you want it (I think).

The Kinden No Hako item (1C) has a great ability! When used in battle, it 
appears to do nothing, but check your characters after USING it. They will 
all be raised up to level 19 I believe (at least when promoted) and will gain 
all of their skills they can when doing so. When unpromoted I'm not positive, 
but I do know that everyone goes up levels either way.  Thanks to Brian 
Bruening (gokubest@yahoo.com) for this information!
