I found a way to alter the items you get when choosing a chapter. This could be used to cheat in a massive way obviously, or you could use it to regain what you should have at that point. You can choose what level you are, what weapons, mods, ingrediants and collectables you have. You can even give yourself the items from the upcoming DLC, like the shock pulse bomb (which blows up the heads of nearby zombies), but this maybe be too naughty and get you told off by higher ups.
Anyway, after opening and extracting Data0.pak, open the files Inventory.scr and Collectables.scr, these contain the item names of all the base items in the game. Copy and paste ones you want into a temporary file(this makes it easier incase you mess up). Open up default_player_setup.scr and locate the text sub Items_low, theres also medium, high and very high, dependign on the game chapter. Under there, you will find what items you will currently load with, paste the ones you want into that spot. Example:
Theres too many items to list here, just be sure to get all the chacters in the order shown above and you should be fine.
If you want me to post a compiled list of every item in the game, PM me, its way too big to post here.
I havnt found out how to alter the quality of weapons yet, but giving yourself a white lvl 50 Zed's Demise for example will be good enough, till you find better the proper way.
