    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I am having issues.



    I have been trying to mod my Dirt 3 save to get the rank 35 achievement. It requires you to have 250,000 fans in online. I know that rank is tied to the save because I resigned my save to a different profile and it was rank 20. I believe that I found the location of all the online data within the save by using a hex editor, but after making the changes and rehashing/resigning, I get a save corrupt when I try to load it. I have never manually edited a save before so maybe there is something simple I am missing.

    Anyway, I attached my save and all the stats you need to know. The only number that should need to be changed is the number of fans(43,630) to 249,000. It looks like all the online stats addresses are in the 0001**** range and I believe the fans are on 0001014C.


    Online Stats(listed exactly as it is in game)
    Online Fan Rating - Fanbase Tier 20(43,630)
    Pro Tour Race Wins - 23
    Pro Tour Podiums - 32
    Pro Tour Races - 35
    Jam Session Wins - 13
    Jam Session Podiums - 15
    Jam Session Races - 17

    Couldn't attach the save so I uploaded it.

    Are you using a mod tool on a well known program or hexing it? I believe I saw a mod tool on Horizon? Or is that test drive 2...

    I couldnt find any mod tools for Dirt 3 through google or several of the sites I know of, so I was just using Hex Workshop. Just looked into Horizon and I see it has Dirt 3 so I guess I will test that out right now. Hopefully it works.

    EDIT: Looks like that editor is only for single player XP.

    I just played an online race using a level 35 and it didnt unlock. Does anyone know why when I mod the save, it becomes corrupt? I feel like I am doing everything right. I know EXACTLY where the XP is saved, but my changes keep messing something up. I have rehashed and resigned the save and still nothing. Is there some trick to modding a save without messing it up?

    There are 2 saves in this folder. profile.BAK is the original, unmodded file with 250,155 fans. The other save is the one I changed to have 249,800 fans.

    you can't just hex edit the save and rehash & resign seeming as this game has a custom checksum on it
