    Lightning Returns is double scripted. Meaning you can't just use Bruteforce to mod it.

    The Programs you will need

    BruteForce Save Editor 4.7
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Final Fantasy 13 Encryotor
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    ~files_decrypted_by_pfdtool
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Edit:
    When you download "files_decrypted_by_pftool" its going to be called "1392783994491.txt". CHANGE (Rename) that too "files_decrypted_by_pftool".


    Here how you do it.




    If you already have BruteForce, you will need to enter this is in the "game.conf" file

    ; "LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII" (thanks to cp25stack)
    [BLJM60558/NPJB00326/BCAS20279/BLES01811/BLUS31164]
    ;disc_hash_key=
    secure_file_id:*=921D3E042525CB8493B02AC73967F6DF

    That's the key so BruteForce can read your game.


    Also i didn't make any of these, so if you know you made these leave a comment so i can edit this thread.

    (This is my first post so please go easy on me)

    That's not the text file it let's me download :/

    It gives me one called 1392783994491.txt and inside the text all it says is:
    KEY.DAT APP.DAT

    Need new donwload, preferably one from mediafire or something that won't try and make me download ilivid or whatever 37 times like this site did...

    Other than that this is helpful, I just need the proper text (unless that site just renames the text - I'm pretty much positive it's the wrong .txt though because Bruteforce refuses to show it green...)

    I didn't know it renamed it... The text inside is right "KEY.DAT APP.DAT", also the text name doesn't really matter. Because Key.Dat and App.dat are scripted files in your save, and what this does is it decrypt them. This game is double encrypted meaning bruteforce can't decrypt them, because bruteforce only does one layer of coding. But if you don't use that text file like in this video you will get errors.

    Okay! Update a final time... you were mistaken, the text name very much does matter it won't be detected by one of the two programs.

    Not a hard fix just copy paste: ~files_decrypted_by_pfdtool

    Anyway thanks man, sorry for the trouble lol, I appreciate this.
