Z - Steel Soldiers
By: Troy Willig
To find what your looking for in the save games folder
of Z:SS you'll find files of the 'sz2' variety.
NOT the 'sz2.snf' file. Take this file '?????.sz2' and
open it with "HexEdit" by Geoffrey Prewett.
Then search for the floating point value of 10,000 for
the first scenario save. To search with hex the look for
the code 00401C46 and right beside it will be another
00401C46 and the a few numbers down the row you'll find
This is where the 10,000 credits are for the first scenario
Change ALL 3 of these values to 00247449 and you'll have
1,000,000 credits when you return and reload this game.
Remember not to change only one or two of the above locations
or it won't work. You have to change all 3.
Below is a list of the even credits from 10,000 on up to 15,000:
10,000 = 00401C46
11,000 = 00E02B46
12,000 = 00803B46
13,000 = 00204B46
14,000 = 00C05A46
15,000 = 00606A46
If you want more of the above then goto the web and find
HexEdit, dowload it and use it. To find the floating point
value download WinHack and use its calculator feature which
has the float integer value which is where you put the value
and in the float hex value you'll see the code OF COURSE
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file;
create a backup copy of the file before proceeding.
Use a text editor to edit the ".zcm"
file in the "bin" folder in the game folder.
The file contains a number which represents the
current level. Change that number to "210614544".
Rapid Shockwave attack:
Note: This can only be done on the unpatched game in
single player mode. Hold [Shift] and repeatedly click
on an immobile target while the shockwave unit charges.
Multiple energy blasts will be fired.
