[TuT] How to mod Batman: Arkham City! Now modding Catwoman xp!

Update: I can now mod Catwoman’s XP. If you want me to mod the xp for Catwoman on your save, post it!

In this tutorial, I will be teaching you how to mod your xp in Batman: Arkham City. For this tutorial, you will need the following:

  • Batman Arkham City Compression Tool - Download
  • Hex Workshop - Download
  • Your save

First, make sure you have downloaded the compression tool and hex workshop. You will then need to open up your Save0.sgd in Horizon, and once open, click on the “Contents” tab:

Then you are going to right click the Save0.sgd and extract it to the Batman Arkham City Compression Tool folder:

Next, you are going to double click Decompress.bat, then a box will pop up on the screen for a second. You will then have 3-4 save.decompressed files in the folder:

Now, you are going to open Hex Workshop, and drag the save.decompressed2 into it:

Once open, navigate to Tools>Base Converter. Change byte order to Motorola and data type to float (32):

Now, multiply your WayneTech unlocks by about 4,800 and add your current xp to what you get from multiplying. This helps find your total xp, because it takes about 5,000 xp to level up. Now, if you have unlocks that you have still not used, this may be different for you. So, I have 20 WayneTech unlocks, so I multiply that by 4,800, and add my current xp amount which is 1170. That comes out to 97,170. So now use the base converter and type in the amount you get in the decimal box:

Now look at the hex value, and save it for this next step. So now you need to click Edit>Find, and change the type to Hex Value. Put in the value that you got from the Base Converter, change the search direction to down, and click ok. Here is my hex value:

Here it is when it finds it:

Update: If it’s not finding your hex value, just scroll to the very bottom of the save.decompressed2 file, and look for something like: G…G…G.2.Aand put your insertion point before the first “G”, click in front of the “G”, and change the hex! I hope this makes it a little more simple for you to mod! The beginning letter can be an “E-I” just to let you guys know!
Now, if you want to change it to 999,999 xp, type in this hex value: 497423F0. Now once you have put in the hex value, save it. Then open back up the Batman Compression folder, and double click compress.bat. Once again, a little box will pop up on your screen, and when it goes away, you will replace your original Save0.sgd with your new, modded one:

Now make sure you click Save, Rehash, and Resign! Go out and enjoy your new xp!
You could always use the base converter to find the hex value for how much xp you want as your total, but I find 999,999 to be the best.

I am sorry if it is hard to understand, as it is was hard for me to explain it, but I have done the best I could. So if anyone needs help, I am here :smile:. Post your save if you are having any issues!

You guys should visit that site a lot more, because this tool was released like one or two weeks ago. So I recommend checking out that site when you get the chance.

Also, there’s more that you can do by the way.

What else is there? I was going to add how to mod unlockables and collectables, but I am in the middle of testing to see if it works.

I was going to say the unlockables and the collectibles but since you already have that down then I suppose I should not mention that.

Check the third file. You’ll see what you have to mod, its plain and simple.

Well I already have everything unlocked, because of my xp, which gave me enough unlocks to get everything. I’m just assuming that’s what your talking about?

Not working for me, it tells me string could not be found, i basically have your same stats, but no luck…here’s my save it be great if i can get the max xp

Alright, I’ll take a look at it. It would help to know how many WayneTech unlocks you have.

Edit: Here it is, you should be level 241 with 999,999 xp - Download

Excellent…I was waiting for this tuts.

Thanks for trying, but it still continues to freeze the game once you start up, must be the xp values being entered…also seems this new tool is not working either
