Just to be clear, you almost never find savegame formats that can be edited with a text editor; it's far easier to store the information in such a way that a hex editor or custom savegame editor is required to edit the files.

You're also not going to see anything like "Change this value to give yourself max money!!!" Reverse-engineering a savegame format takes patience, and usually consists of changing one thing at a time in-game (e.g. picking up or dropping some money) and seeing what changed as a result in the save file.

All that being said, it looks like you're wanting to modify a multiplayer savegame file. For a game like Red Dead: Redemption, there are almost certainly systems in place to check for modified savegames in multiplayer and prevent their use when they're found, so I have to ask what you're wanting to change and why?

Not really. As I said above, it's incredibly unlikely that there is going to be much of anything worth changing that's stored in plaintext in the save files, and even if there was, you'd have to figure out how the string length is determined (is it Pascal-style? C-style? something else?). Before you're able to change *anything*, you also have to determine whether the save file is hashed or checksummed to prevent modding (though this is thankfully much easier; once you know of a particular value's purpose, you can just change it by one or whatever, and see if the game still loads the save file). The best you could do is search around the internet to see if anyone else has already done any work on the format.

I had RDR when it was released, and I researched the format(http://godzcheater.net/Research/index.p ... Redemption), but my m8 how still has the game says its encrypted.
If the above format isn't right can you send me your save.

Your using the files you sent me?
There STFS files, not the saves, there is a difference.
Use a STFS tool such as horizon to extract the save.
