Editing, modding...cheating?


That’s not something I can help with but hopefully, others can point you in the right direction.


Thought I should add this since this is a general editing saves discussions. I figured out a way to edit save games on Steam.

For me the 7Zip method only let me acess scenes, and showed me if I would be able to successfully pass a stat roll with my current build. For this method we’re directly editing the SaveGame.

All you need is a programing text editor. First you need to locate your Steam folder. In Windows this is usually in Program Files (86) folder. But you can also right click on your game, and find the folder containing your game. Once you find the Steam folder look for a folder called userdata. You’re going to be looking through these numbered files, specfically in the remote files, until you find a file with your game’s name in it.
Easier way is just to find the game’s ID, especially if you have a huge library. You can usually look this up online by searching the name of your game and its Steam ID.So for example if I’m looking to edit Rent A Vice, I can look up ‘Rent a Vice Steam ID’. Then when I look in my userdata, I’ll just need to look for the coresponding number of the ID to quickly find the folder. Click the remote folder, and
inside you should see a couple of files. Open the files with you text editor/ programming editor of choice, and mess with the variables as you see fit. Since you’re directly editing your save, your new variables will appear in your current save, without having to start over because you only edited up the startup values.


A quicker way to find the ID is by:

  1. Right click on the game in your steam library
  2. Click properties
  3. Create desktop shortcut
  4. Right click on the shortcut, click properties
  5. In the target field, it should look like steam://rungameid/XXXXXX

Also, a good text editor to use is Notepad++, from my experience.


There is easier method, just change in Steam setting to show http address whenever possible and look at it on the game page. Or just find it in non-steam browser on first place.


I edit the games on my phone all the time, for Android all you have to do is backup the APK file then unzip it and edit the .json files. For example: create dark_magic 0 -> create dark_magic 100. Then rezip the files and rename the zip to something.apk and use zipsigner. Although some games are harder than others, some authors use a percentage numbers while others use a normal one. The games that use percentage numbers usually allows values over 100 while games that use normal numbers sometimes won’t let you, so if the value goes over 100 the game crashes


Is there a way to do this on an iPhone?


i have been able to find the apk of guns of infinity using apk editor but i don’t know what values to change


It’s the other way around.

% numbers = “fairmath” = has a minimum and maximum cap. max is capped at 99, and the game crashes if the score is over 99 when it tries to do a fairmath adjustment on it. As long as you use only fairmath to adjust stats there is no chance of this happening since fairmath doesn’t take a score beyond its min and max values.

“Normal” math isn’t capped and never causes the game to crash by itself, but it can take a stat score into territory that will cause “fairmath” to crash the next time it is used.

This is why it’s a bad idea to use both fairmath and normal math stat adjustments on the same stat score past the very beginning of a game since normal math adjustments can take a score above 99 or below 1, and then the very next fairmath adjustment will cause the game to crash.


Just a little tip, if you want to make bigger changes (edit a choice, add a whole new line of code, create a kind of cheat menu, etc.) it’s much easier to just out the .txt files into CSIDE or an editor and play it there-- as it can be very confusing and annoying to make major changes to the .json files.

Oh and if you’re making changes, make sure you’re actually trying to edit in the unzipped version-- I’ve wasted a while making changes whilst browsing the apps files unzipped


Since all the games are in one app, I haven‘t found the files fore the individual games inside the app


Hey guys i want to cheat in game but i cant modify my stats on google chrome i tried most of the things in this trhead and i want to know if someone can help me locate the stats in the browser.



I know it’s been 2 years since your comment but thank you for this. Works on my Guns of Infinity playthrough and my MC now has the thickest plot armor in the whole game :muscle:t2::grin:




can you no longer use only your will insted of happiness or anger as a sorce for your power?


Many years late, but thanks!


The following only applies to the online version. I don’t believe it’s possible to modify the game via the app.
Incredibly late reply, but the closest thing I’ve found for cheating via iOS is to simply open two tabs of the game in question, add scenes/startup.txt to the end of the URL in one tab, then replace startup with whatever else is listed under *scene_list. You have to do the math yourself in order to get the variables you want, as well as manually progress through the game itself, but at least it’s no longer a shot in the dark :stuck_out_tongue:


How is it you’re able to edit the persist_data table in Google Chrome? In Firefox I can get it to work, but the only thing I can do in Chrome is select and copy the text—not edit it.


I know this is old, but for the record, I want to urge all of y’all not to download or support any of these APK pirate sites in any way. If you feel the need to mod, do it yourself on your bought copy of the story (or, you know, grow up and accept that GameSharking your way through everything is just sort of pointless; if you want to see it all without the game putting up a fight, you could always just read all the text in the game files). But giving these thieves any sort of attention or support is a pretty direct attack on this company and the authors. You’re screwing it up for the both of us, Big Morty.


I might be missing something but how do you know that he pirated the game?

Unless you’re problem is with modding as a whole
