Since my old thread already closed since it got to 500 (thanks) I made another one

Credits for Split Infinity First of all, the thanks goes to Heatherlover/who brought this up, and all other people in "Save hacking" topic who made this possible.

Second, this requires no modifications whatsoever - can be done on official firmware.

A step-by-step guide on enhancing your gameplay experience if you just want to beat the game for the story, don't wanna grind for cash or just plain fun.

I've found no way to augment STR and MAG by a small margin. Any value I put in skyrocketed STR and MAG to 9999. Similarly, I've no idea what influnces accessory capacity value. You'll need to fiddle with it yourself.

So, comments welcome.

--- Instructions ---

As always, make sure to back up your save!

To get gil bonanza, go to Components and move your most expensive item in first slot on left column.

Now make sure to save your game.

Insert a USB flash drive into USB slot and transfer the save from PS3's HDD onto USB drive.

Once the save is transferred, plug the USB flash drive into your PC.

Open a hex editor.

Open app.data file.

Noel
Find Offset 342F0, column 01
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Noel's CP
Find Offset 342F0, column 05
- change the value to FF
- changes equipment capacity for Noel
- you'll need to fiddle with the value yourself to find a good capacity
Find Offset 342F0, column 09
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Noel's HP at 99999 HP
Find Offset 34300, column 09
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Noel's STR at 9999
Find Offset 34310, column 05
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Noel's MAG at 9999

Serah
Find Offset 36C90, column 01
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Serah's CP
Find Offset 36C90, column 05
- change the value to FF
- changes equipment capacity for Serah
- you'll need to fiddle with the value yourself to find a good capacity
Find Offset 36C90, column 09
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Serah's HP at 99999 HP
Find Offset 36CA0, column 09
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Serah's STR at 9999
Find Offset 36CB0, column 05
- change the value to FF
- maxes out Serah's MAG at 9999

Find Offset 4DAC0, column 07
- change the value to FF
- multiplies the amount of component item in first slot of left column by a Serahfold

Now save app.data and exit. Almost done.=)

Plug the USB flash drive with 'updated' save file PS3 and transfer it into your account, then start the game, load the save and you are Serahtorious.

Thanks again

Even I had Plat this game already Could you do this for FF13 since that is my fave and this would be a lot more helpful in that game
I tried the "Google it" thing and found nothing

so after moving the component to the first slot, what is the edit just for gil?

I want to grind for CP, ATRIBUTES, ETC, but not farm gil.

XIII save files were encrypted, so this kind of editing was not allowed. Attempting to do so would just create a corrupted save file that wouldn't load.

Not sure why XIII-2 saves are decrypted - perhaps an oversight on SE's part? Or they just don't care if you mess around this time and get insanely overpowered, as opposed to XIII, where even the leveling system in game kept your stats restricted.

OMG I JUST WATCHED THIS AND It reminds me so much of my gameshark. That I missed and Loved (loved playing FF7,8 with Limit breaks all the time, after I already beat the game)

You ever found anything that allows you to always be able to do Meteor javalin and Ultimate Arrow???

I would do this for max HP at 9999

Can you do the Stat increase for monsters?

WHOA how did he get that Serah Theme ???

I (and many others) would be soooo greatful if you can work out how to do this on the 360. The item capacity is driving me nuts.
