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

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:
