    Now that it's possible to edit your dungeon seige characters (Rico Blanko has an 
    FAQ on this over on gamefaqs.com if you need to know the basics) it's time to 
    do more than just change the xp for your character.  This means editing items.  
    Dungeon Seige gives items their powers like this: it has the basic item, and 
    then can have one prefix and one suffix (only one of each, adding more gets 
    ignored by the game).  So, to get a desired effect on your items, load up the 
    party.gas file, find your item and change/add the prefixes/suffixes as desired.
    NOTE: Make absolutelly sure to backup your character.  Even though this is a 
    pretty safe and tested procedure, it's still cheating, so errors, while rare, 
    can and will occur, so make sure you have a backup of your character in case 
    you're one of the unlucky ones to have it blow up on you.  Generally, the game 
    will just ignore the eronious suffix or prefix in items it doesn't like, but in 
    rare cases it will get more upset than that, so make sure to backup your 
    character and editing work periodically.

    The tools for this are exactly the same as for character editing, just three:
     -> Tank Viewer - www.game-editing.net
     -> Tank Creator - www.game-editing.net
     -> Text editor of your choice, wordpad or notepad work
    The rest is just like editing your character.  Open it up, extract to the temp 
    directory of your choice and load the party.gas file up, that's where the items 
    all are (incidentally, the bitmap file there can be replaced with whatever you 
    want looks like too, we haven't looked into it more than just to see it's doable

    Now, in this file, at the end obviously are the xp levels for your stats and 
    skill levels, but before that is a huge list of everything you have.  Spellbooks 
    and what they contain are first, then the rest of your items in a format like 
         equip_slot = es_ring_0;
         gold_value = 20727;
         inv_location = il_main;
         modifier_prefix_name = skirmishing;
         modifier_suffix_name = offoresight;
         template_name = ring_common;
         variation_name = s_d_fin;
    Obviously the first number is just what numerical order it is in the list of 
    stuff you have.  equip_slot is where it's at, gold_value is what it sells for 
    (since you can cheat for infinite gold just by changing the value at the end of 
    your save file, but hey, if you wanna, knock yourself out.)  Not so sure what 
    the inv_location means, presumably more of where it is.  Now, the next two are 
    the ones that matter.  This is where you specify the prefix and suffix for your 
    toys.  (note that not everything has a prefix and suffix.  If you wanna add one, 
    then that's fine, every item can have one prefix and one suffix, even if it's 
    not there by default).  Every item, including ones that normally can't have 
    magic (like your freind and mine, the chicken gun) can be made magic like this.    
    The last two feilds appear to be what your item actually is displayed as.  So 
    far we haven't looked to see much about that, so play with it at your own risk.
    Now, for editing it's just a matter of picking what you want, putting it in, 
    saving the file and then reassembling the three extracted files to a complete 
    save file and off you go.  The prefixes and suffixes we've found and gotten 
    specific info for so far are below.

    This list of prefixes and suffixes is by no means complete, it's merely what 
    we've come across since we started researching this, with somewhat of a focus on 
    the high end ones.  Note that the data has to be entered as is (ie suffixes 
    without spaces and with the of<whatever> as is.)

    Obviously, there's a ton of prefixes and suffixes, and since some do more than 
    one thing, are a bit difficult to get down exactly without a ton of time and 
    effort.  We're still working on it, and will update as, well, we get more done.  
    If anyone wants to help, or has work of their own already done they'd like to 
    contribute, mail us at minako@asia.com  Hope this guide helps.  Have fun 
    cheating ;)
