Since I can't seem to get any help with my compile errors or find a binary that lets me get past the Lava level boss bug, I'm trying to hex edit the save game to get me to the next level. Anybody else found it yet? I sure if I'm persistent I'll find it. I found the values for the Weapon levels.
Thanks If anybody curious this is what my Hex tweaking yielded: A = 0C Left Side Kick On C = 0C Right Side Kick On E = Side Kick Type 22 = Left Side Kick Label 25 = Right Side Kick Label 5C = Front Power Level 5D = Rear Power Level 2E = Shield and Generator 32 = Ship Type 34-36 = Money Level is somehow encoded 5E to the end, though I haven't been able to crack it yet.
