    Phew long winded title!

    Hey everyone, I have been a lurker here for years, can't believe i've only just registered!

    Long story short, I've been searching for multi player save game editors and have found a utility by Gyathaar that can do this, but as far as I can tell it supports up to Warlords expansion.

    I have a game in progress that I would have loved to change so that me and the 1 other player on the map could be in a permanent state of war without any civ penalties, but we didn't think to enable this option before the game started.

    I am a proficient software developer in the UK and will 'have a go' at reading/changing this file, although it seems to be binary which makes it rather more difficult than I had anticipated. If anyone knows of a tool that can do this already I would be more than grateful if they could let me know, else, if Gyathaar is reading this I would love to help you improve your tool to handle these kinds of files if you would like the help.

    Hopefully I can contribute something back to these forums that have given me so much information over the years!

    Ty

    Bump. And, me too.

    Can anyone point us in a good starting direction? Anyone familiar with the SDK who can shed some light on the structure of BTS save files?

    Bump, I last bumped this 2 yrs ago, still waiting for a saved game editor for BTS. I want to use a map generator to make a map, then edit it for my friend and I to play, with starting locations randomized.
    Anyway to do this without said editor?

    You can do this with a text editor in the worldbuilder files, not in the savegame.
    Look at some of the maps around with a text editor (rightclick, open with wordpad/notepad), and you'll see how random starting locations are set.
