Well if you're so great at hex editing, why don't you poke around in your .usr file and see what you can do? :)

Well, normal coding practice would be to declare a list of constants, so the save file would only contain integers, and the program would match up the strings when it came to display them.

Identifying one byte among the entire userfile is going to be tricky. You could take the same .usr just before and after geting a new rank, that way you would only have a limited amount of data to check, the bits that changed between the two versions. Unfortunately the .usr file contains a complete worldstate, all the logs youve left and so on, so there might be a lot of changes in the data.

Or it might just be easier to get your rank up by playing the game. Its not that hard once you know what your doing.

You mean you've made a comprehensive map of the .usr file, accounting for every single byte's meaning, and that isn't one? Are you sure? Why don't you go double check.

Hack some banks, accounts with a lot of cash. You can get to at least Mage that way.

Er.... actually, it IS in the .usr file, declared as a variable, but which one? I have noooo idea whatsoever.

But I'll bet it's a string.

But Darksun, that would be the sensible option. There is nothing quite like spending days fiddling with the usr, fucking up the game, cheating, and being a general dick...

Surely you know that buy now....
