Guide to hex editing by Voldenuit
First, you need a Hex Editor. I'm using Uedit32,
which you can download from www.download.com
Secondly, I recommend you have a savegame where
your main character is carrying a spell scroll or a heart/blood/clot
charm (anything with a number)
OK, now you need to edit the savegame. It willbe
found in the ..\Torment\Save\name of your savegame\
The file you're after is Torment.gam
Now the following is a bit tricky since Torment
uses a dynamically resized inventory savegame. (Bear with me)
Once you have the file open, switch to HEX mode
(the H button) so you have HEX codes ( 00,01,-FE etc) on one side
and ASCII (text) on the other.
Run a Find looking for Nameless in ASCII (you can
also search for the other NPC's too)
From here, you can edit your stats, XP, inventory
etc. But let's just concentrate on Inventory and Spell Editing and
leave Stats to Editor prgrams, OK?
Further down from your name you will see DWORD
in ASCII, followed by words like SPWI101 SPWI107 etc. These are
the spells in your spellbook. You can edit them directly, but you
can only overwrite spells, not add new ones (that damn dynamic resizing
again). However, a canny cutter can place Level 9 spells in the
Level 2 slots (just overwrite spells beginning with SPWI2..), and
memorise them as if they were L2 spells!
After this, there is a gap and then a second run
of SPWIxxx's, these are the spells you have memorised. Ignore them
Finally, we get to the money. After the second
run of spells, you will see two rows of ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ 's. Then you
will see words which sort of make sense - AMBEAR, RING02 etc. This
is your inventory.
Find the spell scroll (it will be the HEX code
of the spell; e.g. SPWI207 for Ice Knife) or the charm (HEARCHRM
for Heart charms, CLOTCHRM for clot etc)
Go to the ASCII side of the screen (press TAB)
and position your cursor at the end of the phrase (e.g. SPWI207cursor
here). Switch to the HEX side and you should see a number like 01
(if you have one scroll) or 1A(if you have 26 charms) further on.
Remember that Hex is in base 16, so 10Hex = 16decimal. the sequence
goes like this: 00,01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,0A,0B,0C,0D,0E,0F,10,11,12...
and so on.
Now edit this number to the number of scrolls for
the number of spells you want. For example, enter 08 where the 01
used to be and you will get 8 Ice Knife spells. (We'll change that
in a second).
Save the file and load your savegame. You should
now have more scrolls in a single slot than you had before. Now
move the scrolls one at a time to fill up your inventory slots:
| Scroll | Scroll | Scroll | Scroll |
| Scroll | Scroll | Scroll | Scroll | etc.
Save the game and switch back to the Hex editor.
Open the appropriate Torment.gam file and go back
to where your inventory was (see above). You should see a whole
series of the spell. You can edit them to whatever spell you want
using the list. Make sure they are in UPPER
CASE. You can also edit their number so you can have 2 scrolls
-that way, both you and Dak'kon have a scroll to copy each. Happy
fireball-flinging! (No, there are NO fireball spells here!)
CAUTION: Some spells do not have corresponding
scrolls! Do not enter these spells in the inventory or they will
crash the game. If you really want these spells, you can overwrite
another spell in your spellbook, and then re-copy the lost spell
The "scroll-less" spells are:
Tongues of Flame SPWI116
Seeking Flames SPWI117
Scripture of Steel SPWI118
Submerge the Will SPWI119
Vilquar's Eye SPWI120
Reign of Anger SPWI121
Missile of Patience SPWI113
Black-barbed Curse SPWI202
Black-barbed Shield SPWI203
Ignus' Terror SPWI217
Infernal Orb SPWI218
Power of One SPWI219
Zerthimon's Focus SPWI311
?Infernal Shield SPWI312 (not sure about this one -just play it safe)
Fiery Rain SPWI313
Balance in All Things SPWI314
I'm pretty sure Ignus' Fury (SPWI804) does have a scroll, but I could be wrong.
There you go! As Always, Hacking does carry some
risk - always make sure you have backup savegames or a backup Torment.gam!
(I personally will only hack my Quicksave file).
Finally, I have a little bonus for all the patient
little munchkins who made it so far: A few miscellaneous items Hex
RING01 Gehraise's Ring +3 Save vs. Poison
RING02 Twisted Ring +1 AC
RING03 Traveller's Ring +1 AC
RING04 Displacer Ring +2 AC
JRING Mempa's Biting Ring (cursed) +2 AC
DWEDRING Deionarra's Wedding Ring +1AC +1 Saving throws
WRING Thex's Ring +4 AC +2 Save vs spells +20 HP! usable only by mages
AMBEAR Amber Earrings +2 AC +2 1st level spells
MAGE4 Magus Guard AC5 or 4
Finally (again) DO NOT add in inventory items!
Only overwrite existing items! (This is 'coz of the dynamic save
file size again!)
