A money-editing edit cheat - By Simon Burrows
I was planning on making a really big edit for this particular
game, showing you how to edit everything from the number of
seats in the west stand, to the amount of weeks left in your
loan repayment! However, after seeing how long this would take,
and realising that there is only one major factor for success in
this game anyway (money), I decided that to just give you the
info on how to give yourself a huge sum of money would suffice.
To get the edit to work is easy. All you need to do is start a
new game with any club, then immediately save by clicking on the
icon at the bottom of the screen with a picture of a disk and
the word 'options' on. From there you should click on the left-
most disk, and you game will be saved before you are dumped back
Now load a Hex Editor such as the one in the NU package, and
pop-up the file called CMSAV1.DAT from the main Club Football
directory. When the file is displayed, use the cursors to guide
yourself to the Hex Location 244F3, and change the "00 20 A1 07"
you find there to "7F FF FF FF". Now save these changes and
quit back to DOS.
From the command prompt, load the game back up again, and this
time click on the icon to load save-game 1. When the game is
loaded, just to prove how much money you've got, go to the
screen with all your finances on, and you will see that your
bank balance has risen from a measly °500000 to a whopping great
NOTE: This amount of money is probably the maximum you can have,
so it is important to spend a lot of it before you earn
some more, otherwise your money-total will scroll around
from the maximum possible to the minimum, so it reports
that you are in the red! It shouldn't really be a problem
to get rid of lots of that money anyway, 'cos there's
plenty of very expensive players on the transfer market!
NOTE2: I found that some very strange things happened to the game
a short while after getting this much cash. It is quite
possible it is just that I run out of memory, because I am
attempting to run the game on a very minimal system.
However, if you get similar problems, it may because the
money-total is too high. If that's the case, simply put
it down to something like "50 00 00 00" which should still
be enough to see you to the top of the table.
