I earned all the extraordinaries and legendaries, twice if you can put em on two times.
Then I grinded all my way up to lvl 80 exp, without using the lvl up button (char is lvl 35 with a bit pumped dmg and attack chance). Only quests completed to access the areas I needed to go for the items.

Now I can start over with different things, try builds and quest choices without grinding any more :-) and totally legit! (Feels much better and prevails brag rights :-) )

Now that is something I could definitely use. It`s hard to tell all the Andor`s Bros apart. Look same, got the same name..
If I could edit the names, that would help me alot. Can you PM me how to do it? Wouldn`t be cheating, right?

Best option would be though, if you could just buy a namechange in game somewhere :-) or a unique `title` that goes before or after your name (title of your chosing).
That way it would stay fully legit :mrgreen:
Change name isn't cheating.
This is simple.
Get a hex editor.
Back up the file you wish to change.
Open the hex editor and chose the saved file
Click the saved file
Once it opens notice the first line will be your name, just change it how you desire
Next go down a good ways on your saved file and find your name again
Repeat what you did on the first line and click save
Now close the app and open andors trail and click the file you updated. The name should have changed

So long as you don't change the length of the name, name change via file edit is very easy. Just find the name in both spots it exists in the file and overwrite it.

I'll respect that as legit. But game play is something I want to be fun, and my idea of fun is more "explore edge cases" than "kill another 10k monsters again". Everyone is allowed to have their own idea of fun.

So for anyone interested here's my "cheatz" character: https://qaz.wtf/andor/cheatz

You can change the length of it.make it smaller or larger. But no larger then the game allows

Agree. Fun is all that matters.
It's single player, so no harm of any kind to others.

My current fun (frustration) challenge is a permadeath monk. Lvl 40 now and grinding for RolS. Not even save/reload is possible. It's fully ild fashioned grinding without any shortcuts.
I hope this one does not die right after finding a RolS (like my previous one...lol).
Excitement and frustration sooo close together.

The for real ones are 32 bit binary values and changing NULL-NULL-NULL-007 to NULL-007-NULL-NULL makes the value go up by a factor of 65536. Items in inventory are slightly trickier because you have to watch out for items worn or elsewhere (eg unpicked up loot), but not much. There's a Pascal string with item name (8 bit string length followed by item ID string) and then a 32 bit count of how many you have. Changing 012-a-p-p-l-e_-g-r-e-en-NULL-NULL-NULL-002 into 013-r-i-n-g-_-s-h-a-d-o-w-0-NULL-NULL-NULL-002 gets you some very nice starting equipment. Similarly kill counts can be edited.
So were in the file are the real XP values. When searching for the amount of display XP, it doesn't also show anywhere else in the file, neither the same hex edit value. The values after the second location of the player name are different too.

To experts reading this comment - Can anyone please message me instructions on how to edit the savefile to increase or alter XP (Experience points) ??

I did try myself after reading some hints on this thread but can't understand it. Since the instructions aren't clearly laid out.

Also, I am using the app called "Hex editor" for this purpose.

Which lines require the editing for changing the XP?

Please directly message me with detailed steps!

Thanks.
