    1. Introduction
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This guide provides guidance to hack Grandia 2 (PC) save game. It is
    tested with Grandia 2 ENGLISH version for PC. I have heard that there
    is a Chinese version of Grandia 2 for PC. This guide may not work with
    the Chinese version.
    
    Basic requirement for utilising this guide:
       1. A copy of Grandia 2 for PC, English version.
       2. A Grandia 2 save game file.
       3. Basic knowledge of Hexadecimal.
       4. A Hex editor.
    
    These are some basic conversion you might need:

    2. Words of Warning
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Using this guide may spoil the fun. If you think this game is too hard
    then feel free to use this guide. Otherwise, I suggest you to back out
    . 
    
    I will not be held responsible for any damage you cause to your game
    or save game. I suggest you to make back-up of your save game file,
    before you tamper with it.

    3. Offsets List
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Grandia 2 save game files are located in the main directory of Grandia
    2. In my case, it will be: "C:\Program Files\Grandia2\". The files
    are named "GRANDIA2_**.sav", replace the asterisks(*) with slot number
    of the save game. The slot numbering starts with 0 (Zero). So, if you
    saved it on slot 0, the file is "GRANDIA2_00.sav".
    
    These are the offsets lists:
    
    Special Coins     0044    4 Bytes
    Magic Coins       0048    4 Bytes
    Gold              0040    4 Bytes
