Mass Effect 3 -=[100 Million Dollars "Hack"]=- - Hex Editing

I couldn't wait for the developers to come out with the save editor so I took the plunge with hex editing. Just got Spectre status and needed money to buy some toys.

Editing is very straightforward. Only edited money. You can edit however much money as you want, but I did 99,999,999 to be safe since I don't know the game limits.


Tools Needed
  1. Party Buffalo (or any other FatX Explorer)
  2. Hex Workshop (or any other hex editor)
  3. LeFluffie (or any other package extractor)
  4. CONcept (or any other rehash/resigner)
  5. Checksum Fix for ME3

0. Make a note of how many credits you have.

1. Open Drive with Party Buffalo

2. Find the ME3 folder with save.

3. Drag drop save to Desktop (or wherever)

4. Open Le Fluffie

5. Open Save
