just some feedback after using 1.03 editor. I had the same issues as using 1.02 editor. The main char edits fine but it's still not able to edit the other chars properly. Certain values still remain uneditable and it occurs randomly, for eg i can't edit squig's toughness or can't edit doc's muscle.
another thing is it kinda breaks the loading between map and tactical gameplay. For eg, after editing main char and squig's stats, i tried to start a heist from safehouse but the game just loops at the loading screen.
Thanks for the feedback, before patch 1.03 I've analyzed the structure and sadly there is no way to improve it. I've thought about adding a character creation editor, as it said you can edit your character on the creation screen and these changes are permanent.
Nevertheless, it's a script based game. The reason why you can't edit values for specific characters is that some of these aren't located in this code area and sometimes you can find values for other characters inside the code area.
You're right if you say it appears randomly, but in most cases it's working.
I can also remove the character editor, but i leave it up to the user's choice.
Well I too seem to have issues if it is not the main character .. seems to work OK with the main one and will save after the edit but if i try other charcters it generally causes a lockup on saving..
I realise the game is a pain to train .. it is kinda obvious from the way the addresses of basic items such as cash and storage jump around if examined with certain free game cheat tools ;-) I have a habit of leaving the health etc alone and play with whatever the game gives and using the free tools just to find the cash and add some at the start of a level .. as the address will change even if only headiong to a mini mission
With the main character edited a little its just a matter of plodding through the game and it certainly made things easier .. especially if used in combination with the developer mode to grab decent weapons for the crew =8-D
i can confirm that editing doc's toughness will cause a break. When I did it, doc's image disappeared from the gang management screen and became a '?'. Not only that, if I were to scroll thru the profiles of my current gang, doc's profile became replaced by main char's profile. Needless to say, if I were to try to save the game, the game crashes and the savegame became damaged. Sorry i couldn't be of more help here. How i wish there is an error log whenever there's a crash so i can send it to you guys.
I have gotten the editor to work in the campaign. You follow the instructions like normal. However, you have to close and reopen the train before you edit another guy/gal. seems to work fine for me that way.
edit: The above works to change the stats in the character screen but in combat the stats go back to normal. Also they reset at level up.
