DRAGON WARRIOR I SAVESTATE HACKING GUIDE
By Ultimaflare99

To hack savestates you need a Hex Editor, I use Hex
Workshop, which you can 
find at http://www.bpsoft.com

BASIC TUTORIAL

Hex is system with 15 digits in "each place" from 0 -
F, F being "15"
For example AA = 170. *Hex Workshop comes with a
converter*

20B0	1100 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
20C0	0000 0000 0000 0001 0000 0000 FF00 0000

Most editors have the address located at the left hand
column i.e. 20B0 or
20C0. Each "byte" consists of two dights. So 11 is
located at address 20B0,
while FF is located at 20CC. So if say wanted to
change your level,  
to 21 You would go to the address that it's located
in: 20C7, Then you would
replace 01, with the number that you wanted (in this
case 33). Also for numbers
requiring more than 1 byte,the bytes are entered in
reverse. For example 
9999 = 270f. So you would enter it as 0f27, NOT f072.

Current HP:   20C5
Current MP:   20C6

Level:	      20C7
Experience:   20BA

Money:        20BC

***Your Level must match the experience you have,
chaning just the level 
won't make a difference.

ITEMS

Herbs:      20BF
Magic Keys: 20C0

Herbs and Magic Keys are always located at these
addresses. Simply add in
the number that you want.

Everything else: 20C1-20C4

NOTE: two items fit in each byte, so putting in AC
located at adress 20C2,
will yield Stone of Sunlight, and Silver Harp in that
order.

0: Nothing
1: Torch
2: Fairy Water
3: Wings
4: Dragon's scale
5: Fairy Flute
6: Fighter's Ring
7: Erdrick's Token
8: Gwaelin's Love
9: Cursed Belt
A: Silver Harp
B: Death Necklace
C: Stone of Sunlight
D: Staff of Rain
E: Rainbow Drop
F: This one's weird, it simply shows the number of
herbs you have, and you 
   can't use any herbs from this slot either.

Equipment

address: 20BE

This one's annoying, basically each number will yield
one possible combination
of different armors.

So 01 would give you only a small shield,
   02 would give a large shield,
   03 would give a silver shield,

and so on until every possible combination of
equipment has been accounted for.
So to make it simple, simply enter FF and you'll get
the best equipment.

STATS
The stats appeared to be set to your level, changing
them seems to have no
effect, they simply revert to their proper values.
I'll include them just
in case any of you are interested.

strength:    20C8
agility:     20C9
Max HP:      20CA
Max MP:	     20CB
