Save Editing Tutorial (In-Depth) + Video

Recommended Posts

Wow, this is really impressive.

 

I have to admit that I did not know anything about "save editing" before @CaptainKostaZ told me about it. Thanks to him, I now have a modified Merc with Scania interior backlight and LEDs instead of license plates.

However, that there is the possibility to edit the amount of money owned w/o actually using "CheatEngine" is new to me, I didn't know it before.

 

So thank you for thoroughly explaining and describing what is necessary and which steps have to be done in order to successfully edit the profile.

 

 

Btw - is it also possible to save edit how much money you have to pay in ATS if you repair your truck? I know that there is a certain amount of % of how much you actually pay and how much your insurance pays but is this editable as well? If so, could you tell me how? ^^

 

Kind regards ;)

How can i use 2 x chassis on the same trailer?

I've tried it, it will only load one of them, so that's pointless. :)

Yes, it is possible to do it. I believe that you are looking for "coinsurance_fixed" and "accident_severity". The former is how much the insurance will pay or something. Regrettably, I believe those values will change in-game according to your driving behavior (wrecks, hits). So there's no point of changing those unless you want to reset it...

 

Thank you guys for asking me questions! :D

^ @IGSApex, you can use this paint job if you want to but, unfortunately, TruckersMP does not add new content to the game. Therefore, it will not be possible to use this paint job online while driving with others. 

 

But if you want to use it for single player, you can drop the file in your "mod" folder (Your PC>Documents>Euro Truck Simulator 2>mod). Then, you have to activate it (ETS2 Launchpad>Modmanager). After having done so, find a service station and customise your truck.

 

That's it ;)

It should technically work... I even made a mod that puts a 730 HP Scania engine in a MAN TGX truck (sounds included). I'm not sure why it would revert back. Did you modify the auto save file or the other one? The game will load the last auto save by default.

No problem mate! A video tutorial is on my to do list, but please don't expect it to come anytime soon, due to my very busy schedule (eat, sleep, work, repeat).

@iStrikeOne It should work for someone who follows exactly step by step. Don't forget to modify the bat file as proposed in the tutorial, then save it. When you drag your game file into it, the black box should appear and it says relevant information. If it's already decrypted, it should be okay. If it's decrypting, it should be okay after the window disappears. If it gives an exception, then you must've forgot to install Java 7.

Okay guys am I the only one that doesn't have the g_save_format listed in the config.cfg? I really want to do this, but without that option decrypting doesn't do anything for me. If anyone could help me out please, thanks in advance.

@LordBenji I did follow everything step by step.

This is what is being shown in the window. Yes I installed java and added the line.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalAccessException: Can not set static final boolean field javax.crypto.JceSecurity.isRestricted to java.lang.Boolean
        at sun.reflect.UnsafeFieldAccessorImpl.throwFinalFieldIllegalAccessException(Unknown Source)
        at sun.reflect.UnsafeFieldAccessorImpl.throwFinalFieldIllegalAccessException(Unknown Source)
        at sun.reflect.UnsafeQualifiedStaticBooleanFieldAccessorImpl.set(Unknown Source)
        at java.lang.reflect.Field.set(Unknown Source)
        at scsc.ScsC.removeCryptographyRestrictions(ScsC.java:118)
        at scsc.ScsC.main(ScsC.java:35)

 

@QuadZilla I think you are looking at the config.cfg in your profile map, go to the config.cfg in your Game map.

@iStrikeOne

I still do save editing today, and I don't have any issues.

 

That's what's in my program files:

And in my bat file:

No big magic here... I also explained that if you installed Java somewhere else (for example on your D), then you should replace the path (in the bat file) accordingly.

There's a reason why I put the change directory command, because if you have Java 8, the command prompt will use that version and it causes an exception.

@LordBenji the only problem Im now experiencing is that whenever I edit the savegame and save the game.ssi its not showing up in-game. Am I doing something wrong? Like is there after I edited the savefile something else I must do instead of closing the file and starting up the game?

@MemeExporter The file that the game will load is the game.sii file located in your auto save folder. If you modify the wrong file, you will not see any changes. Some part may not render on certain trucks (Scania rear exhaust from Mighty Griffin).
