Hello

I use Linux and I cannot get the game to recognize re-zipped savegames, it is not listed in the 'Load Game' list.

What I tried doing is simply to take a savegame, unzip it and zip it back, no actual modification of the savegame.

I have also looked at the unzipped file and it looks ok.

I have tried zipping with Gnome Archive utility, 7zip and the 'zip' command.

Anyone on Linux that can unzip & re-zip sucessfully?

Did you try various compression levels? If I recall correctly, you need no compression on the zip. I know that 7-zip works under Windows in any case.

I found a simple way to sidestep the re-zipping problem. The game accepts uncompressed save-files, so I just took a uncompressed savegame file and added the appropriate file extension.

"You have to re-zip the edited file. You can do it in 7zip, but you must change archive type to gzip. "

Hello,

I used this method to try to edit a hero's secondary skill. But I can only change the level of it successfully (basic-advanced-expert), when I try to remove it, I get a broken skill:

it has no level, only name of the skill that used to be there, and when I right-click it, it shows a whole different skill (for instance, tactics -> scholar).

The place where the skill was is now 00 in file (instead of 03) and it's 100% correct spot, because when I made it 01 it was just Basic Tactics.

I've tried making the hero level up, and the broken skill takes a spot same as a normal skill and does not get overwritten.

Why does it happen?

You have to change the display order of skills as well. For example, you have Advanced Fire Magic in the first slot and you want to remove it. First, you go to address (let it be Addr) where this skill is stored and change 02 to 00. Then you go to Addr + 28 and change there 01 (read it as "display in the first slot") to 00. Of course, you have to change the order of the remaining skills as well (by subtracting 1 from the corresponding values).
