Because you hacked the wrong thing?  :huh:

I don't see how you can expect anyone to help you on the basis of this limited information. What game are you hacking?  How are you hacking it?  Have you been able to successfully make other changes in other games before?  Is this about Brigandine again?

Simply could be address not having permanent place. So when you get addresses after searching, they change place after some amount of time. What you use for hacking? Cheat engine? Try to get into place where addresses you need are with memory viewer & look at that place in several different game moments.
Games that do not give me desired characters playable, or that have single playable character are not worth my time.

OK. 1. Are you sure changes are saved? Game could have some renewing system, that changes data on launch. 2. Game could have several data places for values you want to change, so need to change all of them. 3. Maybe game change HP because it linked to your current level.

Answer 1. No I'm not changes in save, If the game have renewing system that is mean need ASM to break it

Answer 2. I don't think so, Maybe right or not because not all games do that.

Answer 3. That is mean level is control  for balance states, I need change level...

I remember I try hack Final Fantasy Crisis Core and I found ASM Addresses in RAM for let Zack one battle max level but when I search in ISO Rom I don't found addresses maybe compress data also all psp games same ?

HA! Crisis core is unique sh!t. I tried to hack it do delete annoying Zack & play with normal characters, but game changes data places for battle characters after every fight & every loading. I made some custom combos though...
I think you should use cwcheat or cheat engine & just edit data on the fly.
When I hacked FF2, game constantly changing 4 char, so if you want single one all game with all his stats, you need to copy all addresses just before game changing him, then insert them right after. Or your char will not grow correctlyXD

Guess that's why no ones done a  "Turn Zack into Cloud Strife" mod after all these years and released.
Like Super Mario Land? Then you'll love my first completed Rom Hack: Maniac on the Run!

Cloud or Angeal as skins, Seph & Genesis as full playable bosses. They deserve to be playable.

I know we can play by  Angeal , Seph & Genesis as full playable bosses also Monsters...etc but the game not give us any chance to find  Addresses because only Zack  in all stories, play by it but I know number Zack is 00 granted but where is addresses in RAM that is what we need to find it.

Haha, thats not biggest problem. Data constantly changing, messing up all search. Even hack costume is hard. Also game not very stable, so random messing data not really helps >:(

Hm...first try costume of course. There mission mode with specific costume (beach). But that work if game NOT change data just for usual loads, not even talking about battle. Also saves with story moments of changing costumes & swords could help. But its much of work to just make all this. Also game have many text data with Zack & other chars. But I did not get any good results, trying to change that. Only bugs. Like Zack_leaf fpr example or something like that. Could be worth to try search current animation address, this way game will not change data, untill you leave the fight. Maybe close to anims could be something interesting, but thats just a guess, nothing more. There attack text data that could be easily changed to make custom cross button combos. But that will cause bugs for enemies, since they use that data part too. Some of them cease attackingXD. Also costume probaly 1 byte value, which make it hard to search in RPG game.
