    My hex editor of choice is Hex Workshop 4.1
    Note: if you do not think counting 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f 10 11 12
    does not make any sense then I do not suggest trying save state hacking but do
    not get excited there are plenty of sites out there that are willing to tech
    you, just look up making game genie codes.  The time you spend will be worth
    while.
    
    Contributors:
    Thanks to Mike Francis for taking the time to figure out that the weapon hex
    locations contain two pieces of data.  The first nibble being the character
    that has the weapon equipped, 4 equals Hero, 8 equals Girl and C equals Sprite,
    and the second nibble has the level.
    Thanks to Ashiq for mapping out the ascii chart for the characters names and
    giving us the freedom to give our characters a twelve letter length name.
    
    Small contents:
    1) General
    2) Hero
    3) Girl
    4) Sprite
    5) Item Hex List
    6) Weapon Hex List
    7) Armor Hex List
    8) Character Ascii
    
    Notes:
    	* The list for weapons is a bit confusing so here goes.  Your weapon levels
    are stored in the second nibble of the hex location.  If you want a level 8
    sword, the max level, you must enter 08 into the “Sword hex” location.  Now the
    first nibble represents the character that has the weapon equipped, 4 means
    Hero, 8 means Girl and C means Sprite.  Ex. D868 = 88 means the Hero has a
    level 8 sword equipped.
            *Your mana levels are also nibbles so do not put 01 when you mean 1.
            I removed the equipped armor hex list section due to the fact that the
    game changes the list order, thus making my list incorrect.  Basically if you
    go past 3F the list repeats with Hero, Girl and Sprite equipped icons next to
    them in the respective order.
            When ever you change your character’s stats and you reequip a weapon
    the stats will automatically recalculate, this happens in many circumstances,
    which means for the most part your stat changes will get reverted to their
    supposed values.
    I also found where the vertical locations of your characters are stored, which
    allows you to send your characters over walls, creating nice short cuts.
    	With the submitted character ascii chart you now can input names for your
    characters up to twelve characters long.
