After pressing the Tilde button I put in the cheat "runscript zz_money 999999999999' and then press enter, at the bottom left hand side of the screen it comes up with a figure 21369857 gold (something like this) and when I goto Inventory I see there is only -49 in gold. What is going on, can someone help me in resolving this problem.:question:
The game is probably confused as to why you're using cheats for such a pittance. Try adding more numbers. --- #3 Florida Gators 13-1 [8-1] Sugar Bowl Champs! Minnesota Vikings - Orlando Magic - Tampa Bay Lightning - Tampa Bay Rays
Yeah, I made this mistake. I wanted to have enough money and just put too many zeros and it just completely destroys your money supply. Just reload from a point before you hacked the money. --- Used to be Vryllyn33... Then the 49ers got Spanked 45-10. Now, he is no more.
What is probably happening is that the binary representation of 999,999,999,999 is setting the most significant bit to a 1, which ends up being interpreted as a negative number. And serve you right.
It would be interesting to know where the break point is. Pure guess on my part, but I'd guess possibly 2,147,483,647 ?
But why bother when a full load of dust from the Mage's Tower quartermaster and a trip to the Gnawed Noble tavern sets you up for the rest of the game, without cheating, anyway ? (Provided you've worked at the herbalist skills of course.) Sort of takes the challenge away if you get rich too soon, doesn't it ?
