    Kk, so I'm quite experienced with iPhone game hacking. I'm able to hack .plist and all hex like files. But I've encountered a problem for the game I love most: The Quest (by Redshift, published by Chillingo Ltd.). I did manage to find where the save files are located. They are situated in the directory 'Documents'. But the problem is that they are .pdb files. They are very big - I can't find the values for stats with my hex editor. Is anyone smart enough to create a stat hack for The Quest? I would really appreciate it, as I've been trying to hack it for a few months now...

    Can't you use the find function in your hex editor? I'm not very good at the whole hex thing but my editor has just Ctrl+F that I can hit to open up a search box and find what I need once I have an idea of what that is.

    the problem is that more than 50 results pop up for specific values... and if one is changed that is not right, the game crashes

    *edit:

    Yay! Because of sageDieu's response, I started to realize that I could better start to look at some bigger values. Now I've found the offset for gold and xp! And underneath that were the stats present! Thanks! If anyone needs help with it, I'd be glad to help you out.

    You're welcome I guess... I'll grab this game next time I'm on wifi. What kind of game is it? Like rpg adventure or rts or something?

    the quest is like TES4: Oblivion but 2D and not as complex, but still good, with quite a few expansions.

    Try not to bump old topics, make a new one if you have a question. To answer your question, I use HexWorkshop on my PC. It's very, very complicated if you don't know exactly what you're doing.

    Hi. Please please please. I need help. I will not question you habilities of hacking but I'm lost. Really. It's about (you guessed prince of persia). I'm lost. I don't know where to look for. I managed to hack the Start() function and Prince is starting with 10 lives BUT if I change the level (1,2,3,...) instead of starting from the Main Menu, it's back to 3 lives (the original). I missed something. I want 10 lives for all levels and can't seem to trace all the calls from _OrigStrength_ptr. Can anyone at least point me to the direction. OBS: I just started with ARM a few days ago so don't be arrogant with me because I know that almost you all are advanced comparing to me. Hey! I'm tryng hard and very slow. lol. PS: Please help.
