Final Fantasy VIII Discussion
Hope it works with new steam version
found it several hours ago.
it doesn't recognize the new save format per default and convert it to be readable for the editor.
so far so good, every change seems to be written in the file (timestamp changes) but after saving and starting the game the new file is deleted by the game.

but when i think about it... it may be an problem with the sync itself.
and not with the editor.

Edit2: alright now i've got it.
There really is an problem with that syncing.
But here comes the workaround:
1. start FFVIII
2. skip or watch the intro-merch-video-things till main menue
3. start the editor (ALT + Tab to get to desk)
4. load the save file and edit it
5. get back into the game
6. load youre edited save (i saw that it worked by changing GIL)
7. and really important: before going ahead playing save again so you're new Data is synced to the cloud

Edit3: glad CH is going directly to the memoryadress and not on the saves.
that would be a killer for every trainer/editor who's going to edit saveentries.

Edit4: that workaround is a pain in the a#%*
imagine selfie get into you're party -> edit her..
close game cause you can't get back to title screen and do it again.
selfie changed to zell aaannnddd here we go again.
second savefile seems the only way to not restart the game.

Edit5: you can't load an other savegame from within the game.
-.- that workaround is really a pain in the a#%*

Thats not the problem.
The problem is that there is a synchronisation of the savegames.
The launcher detect when the savegame is edited so it will be synced new.
The Editor itself works fine but the Cloudsync from the launcher is the prob.
Only way to get it to work without a workaround would be hacking the launcher.
I know that cloud sync can be turned off by right clicking game name and tick cloud saving option off.
only way to use that editor was the workaround i postet as edit.
