Introduction | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Welcome to my FF5 State Save Hacking walkthrough. I made this because I was impressed at how DracoStar made one for FF6. Being able to edit your characters and such seems too cool to pass up. So I decided to make one for FF5. Simply enough it only took me 20 mins. to figure out how to do this. ***Before reading on, be advised that you need the following so you can have the full extent of this guide in use!*** A. ZSNES Emulator B. Final Fantasy 5 ROM (I used the FF5 Translated into English version.) C. Save/Freeze State of your 4 Characters D. A Hex Editor Of your Choice. But I would use HexWorkShop which you can download for free at www.bpsoft.com (I believe it's a 30 trial version) E. Hopefully you know how to HexEdit. Because I really don't feel like teaching, but I will put a few pointers for you I suppose. **Instructions** All you have to do is open your Hex Editor program, open your save state file, Usually it would be ff5.zst or ff5.zs# (with # as 1-9) which is located in your zsnes directory. Then edit away! Any ways I hope you all enjoy this and e-mail me if you have any problems. @ email@example.com ______________________ | 2.

GP/Gill Offset | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ If you want lots and lots of GP's for your save state, but don't feel like selling coral rings over and over again like I said under my handy tricks and hints section, then this is for you, all you need to do is go to the following offset and type in the following hex digits. You should have however much GP you want then (listed below) Hope your happy! 155A If you want -> 500,000 GP Type 20 A1 07 1,000,000 GP Type 40 42 0F 2,000,000 GP Type 80 84 1E 4,000,000 GP Type 00 09 3D 6,000,000 GP Type 80 8D 5B If Your GREEDY get 9,999,999 GP Type 7F 96 98 ________________________ | 4. Character Offsets | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ OK, Here we have the Offsets to each of the characters in FF5. One thing I have found is there is no point in editing the HP and MP to anything different because they will just reset once your change your job once your in the game. If you want to change your HP and MP, the best thing to do is make your level higher. All you do is go to that offset and change that hex number to whatever number you want (without going over the Max - listed below) And when you return to your game, the changes should be made. - Level Your Characters Level of course. If your are familiar to the Final Fantasy Series, then you should know that the highest level you can possibly get is 99. Therefore don't try to put anything over level 99 because I have no idea what might happen. - Total Experience points. This is your experience points. Instead of just editing your level, you could just add a ton of experience points on yourself. Then fight 1 battle and gain a few (or a lot) of levels via exp. You need to add to what your experience is at currently or you might not get what you want. Example would be if your character has 7777 experience points currently. And you want to let him have 2000 more exp. then you need to type the hex of 9777 to get the correct experience. - Hit Points Your characters hit points. Again, if you are familiar to FF, then you should know that the highest hp you can get is 9999. - Magic Points Your characters magic points. Again (this is getting old). 999 is the max. - Strength Your characters strength (duh). I'm very sure the Max is 99. - Agility Your characters speed. Max is probably 99, I tried it and I was going very quickly already, almost too fast. - Vitality Your characters vitality. Not sure exactly what this does, but the Max is 99 - Magic Power Your characters magic power. The strength of your magic. 99 Max. - Job Level Your characters job level. Example if your character is a knight and has level 2 knight. That is what this offset is. I haven't really tried to edit the level to something higher or lower for the Job. So I think its more safe if you wish to master a job after 1 battle, do edit the ability points (below) instead of trying to edit the job level. - Ability points Your characters ability points toward your current job. This uses up 2 hex bytes. This is the best way to master jobs after 1 battle. Type E7 03 at the offset of your character to get 999 ability points when you reload your state save. Then just fight 1 battle. and your get 1000 ability points and earn all (or almost all, in some cases) of the levels in that job thus mastering your job. Some jobs take more than 1000 ability points to master so all you need to do is save state, reopen your hex editor, and put 999 more ability points under that job, reenter your game, fight 1 battle, earn 1 ABP and thus you get another 1000 total and this should master your job. Butz 1115 Level 1116 Total Experience points. 1119 current hp 111B Max hp 111D current mp 111F Max mp 1137 strength 1138 agility (speed) 1139 vitality 113A magic power 114D current job level 114E current ability points Lenna 1165 Level 1166 Total Experience points. 1169 current hp 116B Max hp 116D current mp 116F Max mp 1187 strength 1188 agility (speed) 1189 vitality 118A magic power 119D current job level 119E current ability points Galuf and Cara 11B5 Level 11B6 Total Experience points. 11B9 current hp 11BB Max hp 11BD current mp 11BF Max mp 11D7 strength 11D8 agility (speed) 11D9 vitality 11DA magic power 11ED current job level 11EE current ability points Faris 1205 Level 1206 Total Experience points. 1209 current hp 120b Max hp 120d current mp 120f Max mp 1227 strength 1228 agility (speed) 1229 vitality 122A magic power 123D current job level 123E current ability points ___________________ | 5. Item Offsets | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Basically the same as above. You have about 255 spaces for items in the game. Below I have listed every (known) item in the game and their hex number so you are able to put anything you want and how ever many of that item you want. Know that the Max amount per item is 99. Example: If you want a Masamune Katana in your items list. Simply go to Offset 1253, then type in 2F. Then go to Offset 1353, and Say you want 5 of these Katana's. All you do is type 05 on that offset. And your done! Another Example: Say you want 3 Excalibur's, 99 Elixir's, 4 Genji Armor's and 35 Holywaters. Start at offset 1253, then type 15 (for excalibur), E3 (for elixirs), C8 (for genji armor), and E6 (for holywater)... Then go down to offset 1353 and type 03 (for 3 excalibur's), 63 (for 99 elixirs), 04 (for 4 genji armors), and 23 (for 35 holywaters). And your done! Good luck. 1253 beginning of item list (item itself) 1352 end of items list (item itself) 1353 beginning of item list (amount of item) 1452 end of items list (amount of item) ____________________ | 6. List of Items | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This is the list of all items/weapons/armor/ect in the game. This is used with the above offsets to set your items and amount of items for your game. This list might be incomplete but I am very positive I have everything here. All of the weapons and armor are listed by weakest to strongest. This doesn't include the special advantages/disadvantages that each item may have. Example: The Thornlet Helmet may have a better defense than the Genji Helmet, but it's disadvantage is that your character gradually loses HP during battle. I also added a * (star) next to the 12 Legendary Weapons just for kicks. Enjoy. 01 Empty (actually puts the word Empty in the slot) Knifes/Daggers 54 Sabre (not sure about this weapon, you cant equip it ever, maybe mime?) 02 Knife 63 Chicken 03 Dagger 04 Mithril 05 Kunai 06 MageMash 07 Guardian 09 Orialcon 08 Kodachi 6D Dancing 0A AirKnife 6C Thief 0B Assassin* 6B ManEater 0D Sasuke* (even though it says Sasuke's Katana, it has a knife icon) Swords 0C BroadSwd 0E LongSwd 0F Mithril 10 Coral 11 Ancient 13 Slumber 56 RuneEdge 12 GreatSwd 57 Flame 58 IceBrand 55 BloodSwd 14 Defender 5C Excalipur 6E Enhancer 15 Excalibur* 61 BraveBld 16 Ragnarok Spears 18 Spear 19 Mithril 1A Trident 1B Wind 1D Heavy 17 Javelin 1C Partisan 1F Holy* 20 Hiryuu Axes 21 Battle 22 Mithril 23 Ogre 24 Warhammer 69 DoomCut 25 Poison 26 Earth 27 Rune Axe* 28 Thor 6A Giant's Katanas 29 Ashura 2A AirBlade 2C Bizen 2B Kotetsu 2D Kiku 2E Murasame 2F Masamune* 30 Nimbus Rods 60 Wonder 31 Rod 32 Fire 33 Ice 34 Thunder 36 Lillith 35 Poison 37 Wizard* Staffs 3A Power 3B Cure 38 Staff 5E Flail 39 Mithril 3C Light 5F MornStar 3D Sage* 3E Judgement Bow/Arrows 67 Mafuuji 65 Silver 3F Flame 40 Frost 41 Thunder 42 Darkness 43 KillerBow 44 Elfin 66 Gust 68 Avis 45 Yoichi* 46 Artemis Harps 47 Silver 48 Dream 49 Lamia 4A Apollon* Whips 4B Whip 4D Blitz 4C Chain 5D Beastkill 4E Firebute* 4F Dragon Bells 50 Giyaman 51 Earth* 52 Rune 53 Tinker Shields 81 Leather 82 Bronze 83 IronShld 84 Mithril 85 GoldShld 86 Aegis 87 Diamond C4 Flame CD Ice Shld 88 Crystal C6 Genji CE Bloodied Helmets 94 Hairpin 89 Leather 90 Feather 8A Bronze 97 GrnBeret 99 Lamian 91 Tricorn 8B IronHelm CB Hypno 96 Headband 92 Mitre 8C Mithril 8D GoldHelm C3 TigrMask 93 Socklet 8E Diamond 95 Ribbon 98 Darkhood 8F Crystal C7 Genji CC Thornlet Armor 9A Leather A7 Cotton A1 Copper A8 SilkRobe 9B Bronze A2 Kenpo AA Bard 9C Iron A3 Silver A9 Earth A4 Stealth 9D Mithril BB AngelGwn AB Lumina B9 Strength 9E Gold A5 DiaPlate AC Black AD White AE Mirage 9F Diamond A6 DarkSuit CF Rainbow A0 Crystal C8 Genji BF BoneMail Relics B2 Elf Cape CA WallRing B5 Hermes C5 ConagoJr C0 Leather B4 Glasses B7 Silver BA PwrWrist B6 Mithril B0 Thief B8 Diamond BC AngelRng BD FlameRng BE CoralRng C2 Gauntlet C1 KaiserKn B1 Giant AF Protect D0 RedShoes C9 Genji B3 Cursed Items E0 Potion E1 HiPotion E2 Ether E3 Elixir E4 FenixDown E5 MaidnKiss E6 HolyWater E7 TurtlShell E8 Antidote E9 Eyedrop EA DragnFang EB DrkMatter EC Soft ED LuckMallet EE Dummy EF MagicLamp F0 Tent F1 Cottage F7 DrgnCrest F8 OmegaMedl F9 Ramuh FA Catoblepa FB Golem FC FlameTech FD WaterTech FE BoltTech FF Efuefu Drinks F2 Giant F3 Power F4 Speed F5 Protect F6 Hero Other 1E TwinLance 59 Cresent 5A Shuriken 5B Fuuma 62 Soot 64 RisingSun I'm not sure about the rest of this.

My own personal list of handy tricks and hints | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ - Need some GPs? OK, Say you want to have a ton of money in your game. The best way to do this is to add 99 CoralRings to your inventory, and just sell them. I believe you will get about 4,000,000 GP for that. *Update* If you don't wish to do this, go to my GP/Gill Offset Section above and get however much GP you want right away. Here I have made a chart for converting dec. to hex. To get a certain amount of whatever stat. you want, look under the Dec side for the normal number, then look under the Hex side which are across from each other, to get the hex digit to type in order to get the right Dec number. Dec / Hex For Level, Stats... 30 1E 50 32 70 46 99 63 For HP, & MP... 100 64 200 C8 300 2C 01 500 F4 01 700 BC 02 999 E7 03 HP Continued... 1000 E8 03 1500 DC 05 3000 B8 0B 6000 70 17 9999 0F 27 ______________ | 8.
