Hexadecimal Introduction Written by Jason Timmons (

To alter the statistics of your characters through hacking into 
	your save state (or *.STA file), you'll need to go to Break 
	Point Software ( and download a program 
	called "Hex Workshop." Once you're finished downloading and 
	the program is finished running SETUP.EXE automatically, open 
	Hex Workshop and use it to open any DW3 STA files you may have.

Hex seems complicated at first, but is quite
simple after a while. The list of numbers on the
left is the address. Ignore the gibberish on the
far right.  The key number in hex is 16. It uses
the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F.
0-9 have their normal values and A-F has the
values of 10-15. To read a hex value, each
column has a value. Example:

Normal number:  99 => 9 is the tens column, and 9 is the ones column
Hex number: 63 => 6 is the 16s column, 3 is the ones column

Both of these numbers are 99. In hex the second column is worth
16 each. so you multiply 6 * 16 to get 96, then you add 3 * 1 to
get 99. Now the letters.

Normal number: 243 => 2 is the hundreds column, 4 is the tens column, and 3 is the ones column
Hex number: F3 => F is the 16s column, 3 is the ones column

Both of these are 243. F is equal 15 so you multiply 15 * 16 to get 240,
then you add 3 * 1 to get 243.
Each column is a multiple of 16. The next column after the 16s column
is 256, which is 16*16. The column after that is 4096, which is 256 * 16.
Each column after that is the next multiple of 16. This is how you do
very large numbers. Here's an example.

Normal number: 10,456 => 1 is the ten-thousands column, 0 is the thousands column,
			4 is the hundreds column, 5 is the tens column, and 6 is the ones
Hex number: 28D8 => 2 is the 4096s column, 8 is the 256s column, D is the 16s column,
			and 8 is the ones

Again, both equal 10,456. Take 2 * 4096 to get 8192, add 8 * 256 to get 10,240, add
			D(13) * 16 to get 10,448, then add 8 * 1 to get 10,456.

This is a basic guide for hex. It doesn't really get much more complicated that that.
With most hex editors, when you open a save state,  you will have the addresses on
the left, junk on the right, and the hex codes in the middle. A set of two number/letter
sets is considered a unit. There are 16 units on 1 line. If the address on the right says
00002700, then the line addresses go like this:

Line Address	0001   0203   0405   0607   0809   0A0B   0C0D    0E0F    Junk
00002700	6363   6363   FFFF   FFFF   FFFF   FFFF   FFFF    FFFF    cccc............

So if the guide says that address 2704 is for the first characters strength, then he has 255
strength. [FF = (15*16) + (15 * 1) = 255] FF is at the address 2704, so in normal numbers,
that equals 255.

All this will take a little practice to get used to, but it gets easier as you go.
Also, some codes are flipped. Like if you wanted that value of 99,999 somewhere,
which is 1869F in hex, it takes three units. Something like gold, which takes three
units, is reversed. So it would say 27BE, then 27BD, then 27BC. So you would put the 
first unit: 01 in 27BE, then the second unit: 86 in 27BD, then the third unit: 9F in

These codes are just like going to the Shrine of Dhama, except
	your statistics aren't halved and you don't have to start over
	from Level 1! Also, by just adding or subtracting 8 digits from
	the current value, you can give your character a sex change!
	(Aside from equipping some female-specific armor, such as dresses 
	and bikinis, I don't see a point to this.)

00- Male Hero
01- Male Wizard
02- Male Pilgrim
03- Male Sage
04- Male Soldier
05- Male Merchant
06- Male Fighter
07- Male Goof-off

WARNING WARNING WARNING: I recommend that you 
don't mess around with the status modifier. 
Keep it as it is (8080) or you'll start to get 
some extremely negative results. On the 
following table, "XX" represents any value
other than 80.

	8080: Normal
	XX80: On the map you appear paralyzed. The windows 
		turn orange after a while. Enter a battle and 
		you're automatically dead.
	80XX: On the first step you take, you become a ghost
		and the windows turn orange. You can still
		freely walk around as a ghost, but for each
		step the screen flashes red (as if poisoned)
		and you wind up losing HP, MP, MAXIMUM HP, and
		MAXIMUM MP in random increments. After the red
		flash, you get a message saying "(Character)
		is dead." Enter a battle and you're automati-
		cally dead.
	XXXX: Same as 80XX, but the onscreen sprite is a
		paralyzed character instead of a ghost. And
		if that's not bad enough, your items start to
		change. The changes are completely random; once
		my Copper Sword turned into a Green Orb.

******MAGIC MODIFIER******

The first part of the "Battle Magic" code represents the first
	8 spells on the character's list of battle spells. The
	second part represents the second 8 spells, and the
	third represents the third 8 spells.
The "Field Magic" code represents the 8 spells that can be
	used outside of battle.
The Hero learns 16 battle spells and 8 command spells.
Pilgrims and Wizards learn 24 battle spells and 8 command spells.
The 32 Pilgrim spells and 32 Wizard spells can be used by any
	class except the Hero.
The Hero can only use the magic of the Pilgrim and Wizard when
	his/her class is changed. His/her set of 16 battle and 8
	command spells has the same offset as the first 16 battle
	and 8 command spells of the Wizard.
To have every magic spell at your disposal, input "FF" at every
	magic-related offset.
If the 8 magic codes for the Hero are set to FF, he/she can still
	only use the 16 battle and 8 command spells that are ex-
	clusive to the Hero class.
