1)Introduction

First of all , thanks for reading my guide. Send any comments to
             -Battlemage_sadbuttrue@yahoo.com.ar-

This guide was made by Battlemage_Li , using Hex Workshop ,Zsnes , and a
Translated version of the rom. You can search for this offsets in the 
*.ZST! Not in the *.SRM If you don't know hex-edit or savestate 
hacking... you can read other Hacking-Guides for an example Super Mario 
RPG , because it DOES explain the basics of Hex.I don't like to teach 
with my poor english. Just use the Base Converter to convert decimal to
hex: Write the number on the "Decimal" window , and it will "magically"
appear in the Hex Window.

I'm making a Front Mission walkthrough so , if you wanna help , e-mail
me!

2)1.1 IMPORTANT NOTE!

I received a mail from Mehmet Kucukgl (see Thanx To section) asking 
why to not search for the exp offset... after some tries I have 
discovered that... the attributes offset listed in the offset section is
really the experience for each ability of the character. So (untested)
I also discovered that changing this values to 9999 will up the 
character abilities and I suppose also the level.
I need a tester for this , 'cause I don't have too much time to spend
with this guide , I'm losing all the time in school... (yes Im 13 years
old only :)

So the exp is from 1 to 9999,but the ability is from 0 to 99 only ,and I
won't search for an offset that's for no use , just put a lot of exp and
you'll get a lot of points of ability...

3)Offsets

a)General Offsets

Money: 1EAF-1EB1 I don't know if the offset ends in 1EB0 , but you won't
 need more than 999999 gold... don't be greedy...

b)Character specific offsets

*NOTE*:This isn't fully tested , I believe the HP is one-scenario only...
I will test it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Items:
Quantity:DD97-DD9E (For items , not for Parts and Weapons)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NOTE*: I don't know very much how does the quantity works , but just 
buy one of each item and write 63 in all bytes (99 in decimal) and you 
will have 99 of each item.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NOTE*:I'm still searching the Weapon and Parts offsets (Equipped and as
items)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------
4)The reason of this guide:
Hacking save states is easy and funny! And I was boring of beating the 
game so easily , so I started to hack save-states , decreasing HP and my 
Attributes.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------
5)Thanks to:
Mehmet Kucukgl <sleepy_troll81@hotmail.com> for his idea of searching
for the experience offset. Really Thanks Mehmet!
GameFaqs (if they post it ;-):They are the best!
GameSpot:Another good page.
Square:For Final Fantasy V , Front Mission , Chrono Trigger... and a lot
of other games...
The translators:Because I hate the games that I can't understand the 
story...(Another example is Der Langrisser for SNES... thanx Dejap for 
translating DL!)
Pre-Black Album Metallica:Metallica rocks!
You:For reading this guide!
Symphony X:The best prog metal band out there!
Ayreon:Another good prog rock-metal band!
