    This guide will allow you to hack your memory card gamesaves with the
aid of a DexDrive, PlaySaver, or Caetla, as well as gamesaves generated by
the PlayStation emulators Virtual Game Station, Bleem!, and PSEmuPro.  There
are several ways that this could be done, but the easiest is using the
built-in hex editor of PSXGameEdit, a wonderful little program which can be
obtained here:

    In order to hack the Suikoden II gamesave, I expect you to have
knowledge of what hexadecimal is, and how it works.  I also assume that you
have experience with computers in general.  Although this is not as hard as
it sounds, it also isn't so easy that a complete newbie can do it.  It is
not only possible, but quite easy to change a gamesave in a way that causes
the console to lock up, although I will try to warn you of obvious things
that can cause this.


    Instead of giving specific instructions on how to perform each task, I
will instead tell you what to do here, and you can then apply it to each
different type of modification.  If you are particularly tech-savvy and have
experience with hex editing, you may be able to skip this section entirely.

    First, open your memory card/gamesave in PSXGameEdit, and select the
block you want to edit.  Most of the functions in this guide apply to the
FIRST block of the Suikoden II gamesave, but for those on the second, the
locations will be expressed as $2xxx, since the first block runs right into
the next.  After selecting the save to edit, click the button to go into
PSXGE's hex editor.  This will show the entire contents of the gamesave in
hexadecimal (Base 16).  Both files are 8192 bytes long, but this guide shows
locations in the file using hex values, not decimal, so A is byte #10, 10 is
byte #16, and 1FFF is byte 8191.  If you don't understand, leave and study
up on your hex.

    Integers will be represented in hex just as they are.  Note that if the
value is longer than one byte, the bytes may be in reverse order, so decimal
1234567 (hexadecimal 12D687) would be 87 D6 12.

    Strings do not use ASCII like they would with a typical computer.
Fortunatly, David McGrath, author of the McDohl Name Correction Guide, has
provided a list of all the letters in the alphabet and all their
corresponding hexadecimal values.  This list is at the bottom of the file.

    Items and Runes are used in several different ways by the gamesave,
which will be explained in the Item and Rune guide further below.

    Each character has it's own 1-byte value representing it, these will
also be listed below.

    Without further ado, on to the hacking!

2.1 Money
Location: $16CA - $16CC
Lenth: 3 bytes

    This is possibly the easiest value to change, so it comes first.  The
usefulness of this is somewhat obvious.  Your money is an integer between 0
and 2^24-1 (16,777,215).  However, it would be a very good idea not to enter
more than 999,999, which is the game's max.  It's not impossible to go
higher, but it will cause the game to get very confused.  To make this value
999,999, enter "3F 42 0F".

2.2 Time Played
  Hours Played:   $0216, $1C24
  Minutes Played: $0218, $1C26
  Seconds Played: $021A, $1C28
Lenth: 2 instances of three values of 1 byte each

    There is only one reason to change these, but it's a good one: the Clive
subquest.  By decreasing the time played to none, you can easily complete
the Clive subquest, which is next to impossible otherwise.  Read some of the
Suikoden II FAQs for more info about this subquest.

    Only the second of these two sets actually matters, but you should
change both to avoid confusion (The first is used by the game loading screen
only).  All numbers are integers between 0 and 2^8-1, but I don't recommend
going above decimal 59 (hex 3B) for the seconds or minutes, for obvious

2.3 Names
Thanks to David McGrath for all his help with this section.
  Character Names:
    Hero's Name:         $0200 - $0217, $1A12 - $1A19
    McDohl's Name:       $021C - $0221, $1A96 - $1A9B
  Greenhill Fake Names:
    Hero's Name:         $1A24 - $1A2B
    Nanami's Name:       $1A37 - $1A3E
    Flik's Name:         $1A4A - $1A57
  Other Names:
    Suikoden II Castle:  $1A9F - $1AA6
    Suikoden I Castle:   $1AA8 - $1AAF
    Army Name:           $1AB1 - $1AB8
Length: Most are 8 bytes each, Flik's Fake Name is 14 bytes

    Keep in mind that these names are not ASCII values, they use the hex
codes for the Suikoden II alphabet, found in section 3.1.

    The only really practical use for these names is to change McDohl's
name, thus fixing the name bug in the American release of Suikoden II.  Read
David McGrath's guide for more info on this.  You can also change names that
you didn't think about and now regret (I named my Suikoden I Castle "Oora"
and gave the hero a Greenhill Fake Name of "Squirtle" :)

    To edit these, simply copy the hex codes from section 3.1, and fill any
empty spaces at the end with "00"s.

    Note that the Hero and McDohl have two locations; the first is used by
the game loading screen, the second is used in the actual game.  You should
change both to avoid confusion.

2.4 Character Stats
    This will almost certainly be the most difficult section of the guide,
not because it's hard to edit, but simply because there are 83 playable
characters with stats to edit :(  Thanks to Nocturnal for some help with
this section.

    The character stats begin at $0A64, are 36 (hex 24) bytes long each, and
there are 83 (hex 53) of them.  They are in the same order in which they are
listed on the character list in section 3.3.  Note that there is no
character #0.

    Get your hex calculator ready...!

    So, in order to find the stats for a specific character, you can use
this formula:

    l = A64 + 24(c - 1)
      l: desired location
      c: character number on list

    Note to self: algebra and hex do not mix well :)  These numbers are hex,
so that 24 is actually 36 in decimal, and the A is not a variable, it is the
number A.

    Then, to find the specific value you wish to change, add "l" and the
number for that value listed below:

  0  Level
  2  Exp.
  4  Current HP
  6  Maximum HP
    These statistics are all 2-byte integers.  It is not recommended that
you go above the logical maximum for each stat.  The two bytes are in
reverse order.

  8  L1 MP
  9  L2 MP
  A  L3 MP
  B  L4 MP
    These statistics are actually two integers of half a byte each.  The
first is the current MP, the second is the maximum.  These values CAN be
higher than nine, if they are, the decimal digit for the tens column will be
truncated, so 10 will appear as 0, 14 will appear as 4.

  C  STR
  F  M DEF
 10  TECH
 11  SPEED
 12  LUCK
 13  Weapon Level
    These statistics are 1-byte integers.  The Weapon Level CAN go above 16,
but it doesn't seem to do any good...

 14  Rune (Weapon)
 15  Rune (Head)
 16  Rune (Right Hand)
 17  Rune (Left Hand)
 18  Helmet
 19  Armor
 1A  Shield
    These are each 1-byte integers.  They are the first byte of the item
code for the rune or armor, found in section 3.3.  Note that characters only
have three of the four runes, which vary between characters.  The extra
value has no use, so be sure to check which three a character can use before
changing them.  You can equip or remove any rune in any slot, but if the
slot is locked, you still won't be able to change it in the game.  Ditto
with armor.

 1B  Item 1
 1D  Item 2
 1F  Item 3
    These are each 2-byte integers.  Just copy the item's code from section

 21  Unknown
 22  Unknown
 23  Unknown
    If you know what these are, TELL ME!!

    Obviously, it would be very tedious to find a specific stat of a
specific character, but this is how it's done.

2.5 Inventory
  Party Inventory: $1680 - $16BB
    Length: an array of 30 2-byte integers

  Special Items: $16BC - $16C5
    Length: an array of 10 1-byte integers

  Castle Storehouse: $1B4F - $1BC6
    Length: an array of 60 2-byte integers

  Character Inventories: See section 2.4 above.

    The Party Inventory and Castle Storehouse work essentially the same way.
Just copy the item's hex code from section 3.2.  If you don't put them in
order, the game will automatically sort them by category, then by individual
item, with the exception of category 5, which is messed up.  For more info,
see section 3.2.

    The Special Items are only the first of the two-byte hex codes in
section 3.2.  Special Items are all, and can only be, category 0, and they
don't have quantities, since they cannot be used.  The game will not sort
these like the Party Inventory and Castle Storehouse.

2.6 Current Party Members
  Party: $020C - $0211, $1637 - $163C
    Length: 6 1-byte integers

  Convoy: $0212 - $0213, $163D - $163E
    Length: 2 1-byte integers

    One of the most useful sections of this guide, you can put any playable
character in your party at any time, including McDohl, both Jowys, whoever.
Simply copy the hex code from section 3.3.

    There are two instances of each of these; the first is for the game
loading screen only, only the second matters.

    Do not try to remove the main character from your party.  Also, if you
want to put Valeria or Kasumi in your party, they must already be recruited
on the Stone Tablet (see section 2.7).

2.7 Recruited Characters
Location: $1FE3 - $205C (extends onto second block)
  Length: 122 1-byte integers

    These are the characters which have been recruited and appear on the
stone tablet.  These values can vary, but here are the ones I've seen:

 00 Not recruited
 01 Unknown
 06 Recruited (unknown)
 07 Recruited
 94 Dead
 95 Dead

    I don't know what the difference between 06 and 07 is, or between 94 and
95.  Just use 07 if you want to recruit a character.

    The characters are in the same order as they're listed in section 3.3.
Thus, to find the location of a specific character, use this formula:

    l = 1FE3 + (c - 1)
      l: desired location
      c: character number on list

    Like in the character stats section, these values are all in hex, not

3.2 Items and Runes
    Each item in the game is represented by a 2-byte integer.  Here is how
they are broken down:

  First byte: Specific item
  Second byte:
    First nybble: Item's category & appraisal
    Second nybble: Quantity of item

    A nybble is half a byte, or four bits, or a single hexadecimal digit.
So 4109 would be nine Millet Dumplings.  If the quantity is equal to zero,
there will be one of the item.  You CAN have more than 9 of an item, but the
second decimal digit will be trucated, so 10 would appear as 0, and 15 would
appear as 5.

    If you add 8 to the first nybble of the second byte, it will become the
unappraised version of the same item.  Thanks once again to David McGrath
for this tidbit.

    This info is used for you're characters and party inventory, your
castle's storehouse, and the runes equipped by your characters.  Equipped
runes only use the first byte, as the category is always 2, and the quantity
is not applicable.

    If an item is listed as "???", "blank", or "messed up", I do not
recommend putting them in your inventory :)  Unless you're trying to help me
find new items.

    I realize these lists are not quite complete, so if you feel inclined to
test out the missing items, I'd be happy to add them to this guide :)

3.3 Characters

    Since there are so many characters here, I assume that these same values
are used by the game for many different things, not just the characters in
your party.

    None of the NPCs may be put in your party, but any can be put in the
convoy.  Note that after Gremio (7D), none of the character's portraits show
up, except for Culgan's.
