Z - Steel Soldiers
By: Troy Willig
To find what your looking for in the save games folder of Z:SS you'll find files
of the 'sz2' variety. NOT the 'sz2.snf' file. Take this file '?????.sz2' and open
it with "HexEdit" by Geoffrey Prewett. Then search for the floating point value
of 10,000 for the first scenario save. To search with hex the look for the code
00401C46 and right beside it will be another 00401C46 and the a few numbers down
the row you'll find it again. This is where the 10,000 credits are for the first
scenario game save.
Change ALL 3 of these values to 00247449 and you'll have 1,000,000 credits when
you return and reload this game. Remember not to change only one or two of the
above locations or it won't work. You have to change all 3.
Below is a list of the even credits from 10,000 on up to 15,000:
10,000 = 00401C46
11,000 = 00E02B46
12,000 = 00803B46
13,000 = 00204B46
14,000 = 00C05A46
15,000 = 00606A46
If you want more of the above then goto the web and find HexEdit, dowload it and
use it. To find the floating point value download WinHack and use its calculator
feature which has the float integer value which is where you put the value and in
the float hex value you'll see the code OF COURSE backwards.
Rapid Shockwave attack:
Note: This can only be done on the unpatched game in single player mode.
Hold [Shift] and repeatedly click on an immobile target while the shockwave
unit charges. Multiple energy blasts will be fired.
Use a text editor to edit the "[playername].zcm" file in the "bin" folder in the
game folder. The file contains a number which represents the current level.
Change that number to "210614544".
