Title: SNES Shadowrun Karma Points and Nuyen
Post by: SunGodPortal on January 03, 2015, 03:09:09 pm
I love Shadowrun. It's a kick-ass game. It's been a while since I've played it from start to finish for one specific reason. So, I'd like to hack it in an attempt to negate the excessive amounts of grinding required during certain parts of the game by raising the amount of karma points and nuyen received from enemies. I assume this would be a simple fix once I found out what information needed to be altered but I have no idea how to go about finding that specific data. Anyone have any suggestions?

In the docs available from the Getting Started section, some people mentioned the method by which you compare 3 memory dumps (one before getting more money and one after) and hope you find the right info that way. Of course you an also do a lot of other things that don't involve getting money, and compare the memory dumps, to confirm that some of the changes you see are not money-related.
Or examine files from the game and hope to find some enemy stats. You need to know quite a few and use patience to skim through all of the data...

Seems like someone tried to fix up the game a bit:

I would ask Dragoon ZER0 over at gamefaqs for advise.
