    “cheat” to get more moneys

    First of all; let me say that if this doesn’t work for you; please don’t blame me, I’m merely sharing this as it’s worked for me on my system.

    I got bored and started playing around and discovered the save file is just a normal text file you can edit. Using a perl script I made and knowing how much money I had, I discovered something interesting… First open the save file located here:
    $HOME/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Bionic_Dues/RuntimeData/Save/YOURSAVEGAME

    Starting at the very end of the one-line-save file; using the comma as a separator; go back 113 “columns” and you’ll find where to modify the amount of money you have for that save game.

    (for those who care; here’s the perl script I used to help determine the findings and a second script to just print how much money that save has.)

    #!/usr/bin/perl
    #find.pl

    $file = ($ARGV[0] ? $ARGV[0] : “fu”);
    print “$filen”;

    $money = “42943”; #tuck-4-science money
    $ctr = 0;

    open(F, “$file”);
    while () {
    chop($line = $_);
    @bar = split(/,/, $line);
    @fu = reverse(@bar);
    foreach $item (@fu) {
    if ($item == $money) {
    $p = $ctr + 2;
    print “$pn”;
    }
    $ctr++;
    }
    }
    close(F);

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    #show.pl

    $file = ($ARGV[0] ? $ARGV[0] : “fu”);
    print “$filen”;

    open(F, “$file”);
    while () {
    chop($line = $_);
    @bar = split(/,/, $line);
    @fu = reverse(@bar);
    print “$fu[113]n”;
    }
    close(F);

    but wait; it gets better… one of the developers helped me out by giving me a snippet of the source code for Bionic Dues:

    Looking at the code, if you want to find it on the first try bear in mind that the order just before that field is:

    OutputBuffer.AddItem( this.HQHealth );
    OutputBuffer.AddItem( this.DaysLeft );
    OutputBuffer.AddItem( 0 ); // used to be scavenging level
    OutputBuffer.AddItem( this.ManufacturingLevel );
    OutputBuffer.AddItem( this.Credits );

    So if you know those values it’s not too hard to find.
