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. ******CONTENTS****** 1.

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 27BC. ******CHARACTER 01****** Level: 2700 Strength: 2704 Agility: 2708 Intelligence: 270C Vitality: 2710 Luck: 2714 Job Class/Sex: 2718 Current HP: 271D, 271C Current MP: 2725, 2724 Maximum HP: 272D, 272C Maximum MP: 2735, 2734 Status: 273C, 273D Experience: 2746, 2745, 2744 Name: 275C-2763 Items: 277C-2783 Pilgrim's Battle Magic: 27A0, 27A1, 27A2 Pilgrim's Field Magic: 27A3 Wizard's Battle Magic: 279C, 279D, 279E Wizard's Field Magic: 279F ******CHARACTER 02****** Level: 2701 Strength: 2705 Agility: 2709 Intelligence: 270D Vitality: 2711 Luck: 2715 Job Class/Sex: 2719 Current HP: 271F, 271E Current MP: 2727, 2726 Maximum HP: 272F, 272E Maximum MP: 2737, 2736 Status: 273E, 273F Experience: 2749, 2748, 2747 Name: 2764-276B Items: 2784-278B Pilgrim's Battle Magic: 27A8, 27A9, 27AA Pilgrim's Field Magic: 27AB Wizard's Battle Magic: 27A4, 27A5, 27A6 Wizard's Field Magic: 27A7 ******CHARACTER 03****** Level: 2702 Strength: 2706 Agility: 270A Intelligence: 270E Vitality: 2712 Luck: 2716 Job Class/Sex: 271A Current HP: 2721, 2720 Current MP: 2729, 2728 Maximum HP: 2731, 2730 Maximum MP: 2739, 2738 Status: 2740, 2741 Experience: 274C, 274B, 274A Name: 276C-2773 Items: 278C-2793 Pilgrim's Battle Magic: 27B0, 27B1, 27B2 Pilgrim's Field Magic: 27B3 Wizard's Battle Magic: 27AC, 27AD, 27AE Wizard's Field Magic: 27AF ******CHARACTER 04****** Level: 2703 Strength: 2707 Agility: 270B Intelligence: 270F Vitality: 2713 Luck: 2717 Job Class/Sex: 271B Current HP: 2723, 2722 Current MP: 272B, 272A Maximum HP: 2733, 2732 Maximum MP: 273B, 273A Status: 2742, 2743 Experience: 274F, 274E, 274D Name: 2774-277B Items: 2794-279B Pilgrim's Battle Magic: 27B8, 27B9, 27BA Pilgrim's Field Magic: 27BB Wizard's Battle Magic: 27B4, 27B5, 27B6 Wizard's Field Magic: 27B7 ******JOB CLASS & GENDER MODIFIER****** 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 08- Female Hero 09- Female Wizard 0A- Female Pilgrim 0B- Female Sage 0C- Female Soldier 0D- Female Merchant 0E- Female Fighter 0F- Female Goof-off ******STATUS MODIFIER****** 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. ******NAME MODIFIER****** 00- blank 10- f 20- v 30- L 00-3F represents the normal alphabet 01- 0 11- g 21- w 31- M as it normally appears in the game. 02- 1 12- h 22- x 32- N 03- 2 13- i 23- y 33- O 40-4F represents the text symbols 04- 3 14- j 24- z 34- P used for the various job classes 05- 4 15- k 25- A 35- Q (Hr, Sr, Pr, etc.) 06- 5 16- l 26- B 36- R 07- 6 17- m 27- C 37- S 52-56 are cursive lowercase letters. 08- 7 18- n 28- D 38- T They never occur in the game. 09- 8 19- o 29- E 39- U 0A- 9 1A- p 2A- F 3A- V 5B-5E are 2-letter sets.

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. ******MONEY MODIFIER****** 27BE, 27BD, 27BC Enter "9F8601" at Offset #27BC to have maximum of 99,999 GOLD!
