    So I've tried all kinds of steps.
    I have tried doing it from the auto save, a personal save, getting more money and adam.

    Nothing works.

    Message pops up saying i need money to edit this save i click ok and nothing happens so i try opening the save again and this time its random amounts of money but always says no adam.

    Dont extract the save but make a backup of it. now once u made a backup of it just open it on the usb ect:-- pu in yr USB and look 4 yr game save and open it den look at the save and u'll see "mod file" click on that and it will open the bioshock mod tool on its own so now u'll see if u have $$ and adam in it and just change to what u need and save along with reshash ids. den u'll be good to go.

    Your Save you uploaded has no Money on it.

    Look at my Tuts on how to Mod BioShock 1 & 2.

    Actually the problem is that the file offsets for where the cash and adam are located have become invalid if you had installed the update that the game has you install when you first start the game, the only way to resolve this is to either rewrite the editor or remove the update from the harddrive, unfortunately if you have one of the newer xbox's your out of luck because I have not seen away to attack the drive to PC, I have an old xbox around somewhere, but in the middle of moving so its packed up. the editor i believe is basically made for the pre-updated game file

    ok found the exact cause of the problem and why it's working for some and not working. It's as I said before the offset locations for where cash and ADAM are located have been changed some DLC content that adds 2 more plasmids and 2 more gene tonics to the game, which must have pushed the cash and ADAM out of there original spots, thus making them invalid. unless the editor is fixed the only way toget it to work is to delete the dlc and keep loading game files to a point prior to adding the dlc and the gme stops babbling about missing content, cannot load save or something. Good for people who played the game and restarted playiing cause of the addition of bioshock 2 but bad for those who recently bought the game and noticed the dlc content early on.

    Well
    Well i do have money and adam.
    I tried to edit save but failed because of multiple location of same string.

    Solution that i have found
    Then i played games till i have 120+ money and 120+ adam (save little sister).
    With this when i tried again with R360, it worked and i can change my money and adam (to 999) of course.

    Later for testing i have made changed to to save file with hex editor and change 999 to 9999 and it worked because only two locations are found for 999 hex (Money and Adam).

    Request to Admin, please change this thread title, add [Resolved] to start of thread.
