Venture Seas: Save File Editing

Information compilation on save file editing, collected by Lancar.

 

Things You Need:
Notepad++ or a text-editing software more advanced than Notepad.
Notepad++ is free. If you like to edit things, it is an excellent program that will be useful more often than not. Google it.

Where is the File:
‘Local Disk/Users/<yourUserName>/.prefs/VentureSeas/’

Save1 through Save9 are saved here. As with all editing procedures, make a copy of the file you intend to edit, in case a changed value corrupts the file.

What Do I Do with It:
Open the save file with your preferred editing software. Change the values. Load the game and load the save. Some editors have found success loading at any time. Personally, I had to close the client and reload, in order to make it work.

Editing Coin:
Sample entry: <entry key=”sCoin”>500</entry>
Modifying this value changes your coin.

Editing Leaders:
Sample entry: <entry key=”Aurelia: “>null/17397/55/10/484/…
The first number value is experience.
The second is respect.
The third is love.

Editing Courtesans & Crew:

Tips, Combat:
  • When you end your turn, leftover action points are used for your leader’s basic attack. Damage dealt is ~30-40% of their class stat.
  • The 3rd Leader’s passive, +10% damage to summons, works with the Houndmaster’s ability.
  • Leader stats are weighted towards one stat, but not heavily. ie. Aurelia has more dexterity than Vinthal, but a 125% damage strength rune may deal more damage than a 50% dexterity rune. Check your deck!
  • The faster the enemy dies, the less damage you take, and the less runes are used.
Tips, In-Game Editing:
  • The fun potion increases testicle size.
  • Guar milk increases booba size.
  • The 3rd leader can alter the bodies of you and your crew, adding and removing wings, horns, tails, male genital shape, etc.
  • A town in chapter 4 sells an item that reduces booba size.
