X - Beyond the Frontier
Save your game, and note how many credits you have. Open up the
savegame in an hex editor (the first save game is named X0.SAV
then X1.SAV etc etc) DO NOT try and edit X99.SAV, it's the save
Open up windows calculator, switch to scientific view. type in
your credits *withouth the comma* ie. if you have 298.35 credits,
you type in 29835 and click Hex.
It will give you the value of 12A, since in hex each number is
represented by 2 digits, simply put a zero at the start so it
Now search for this value in the savegame. You will find it twice

Making fast money:
Hint by Jaeger
- Hire the Teladi Albatross
- Buy a Solar Power Plant
- Transport it to the Greater Profit system
- Deploy it near the crystal plant
- Buy crystals at the crystal plant and stock them in your solar
- Check the price of energy cells at the other two solar plants in
the system and adjust yours to make good profit fast
After getting some money, buy a telardinium mine and a freighter.
These produce profit fast and with no attendance like the solar
plant, except to get the credits
The best thing you can do in the beginning is to buy and sell energy
units. Buy energy from solar power plants that have a lot of energy
(they'll sell it cheaper), and sell them to various factories that
are low on energy to make a fast profit.
Once you've saved up about 15,000 credits, talk to one of the transports
in the system and have it accompany you when you buy a power plant of
your own. You'll need the transport to carry the new power plant to the
system in which you want to open up shop. Find a system that's low on
power plants, and park yours next to a cluster of factories to rake in
the big bucks.
Don't attack or destroy any Xenon buildings until you reach the
appropriate quest. You won't be able to complete the quests required
to win the game if you destroy one of the crucial Xenon targets before
the quest flag is set.
