NOTE: There is some randomness when it comes to block shifting the file. One may need to repeat this step until the Find Function locates the string. However, if it finds the string immediately, which I HIGHLY doubt, you will be good to go for the next step and very lucky. I highly recommend tallying how many times you need to do this. As we will have to block shift in the other direction later!
After we have located the string and tallied the correct Block Shift Right amount, scroll to the TOP of the file and click the beginning. This is essential so that the next step works properly.
Now we can begin replacing all 4 Hex Strings. The simplest, and most error proof method I found for this is to click Edit, then Replace....
Then we put in the "Find:" box the first of the 4 replaceable hex strings we determined earlier. In the "Replace:" box we put the first of the 4 hex strings we are missing. Then click OK. If done correctly you will have a few options. Click ONLY Replace. A couple more boxes will pop up after replace. Just click OK through them.
Note: Be sure that you have selected the beginning of the file, otherwise the replace will fail.
Repeat the replace step until all 4 values have been replaced over the old values into the document.
After we have completed replacing values, we need to Block Shift Left, the opposite of what we did before to make the values locatable. This is why I recommended you tally how many times you had to Block Shift Right. So that we can Block Shift Left back to where it was in the beginning. If you do not do this step, you save will be corrupted and will not work until you do so!
This is done in a similar fashion. Just click Block Shift Left the same amount of times you did it to the right. For those who need any more depth to this, if you previously Block Shifted Right 4 times, Block Shift Left 4 times.
After this is done you are on the home stretch. Save the file. Remember, so long as you have a backup, you don't have to worry about breaking things. You can always go back. Also, if you want to be extra careful, click File, then Save As... to save into a separate location. I will be doing the latter. Because I am paranoid...
DON'T LOOK AT ME!
You can now close Hex Workshop as you will hopefully not be needing it again for DAI.
We now re-open DAI Save Game Editor and open our newly created file(if you saved it to a separate location like I did). Then we once again use the Search option, only this time, we search for the values we use to replace the old values.
When these values get highlighted as shown, simply double click them to change them from False to True, or True to False.
The values should be as follows:
CE01323A17870C4E95283D747263019A = True
DADF5B4FCEAAA749AC724875AFD601D6 = True
0E8105EDBBB9694DBC4A913ADE0301C5 = False
DB286CE3E14E2D44964C573E2EB0010C = False
After your values match as formerly listed, simply save. To keep the original name, click the file you opened. Create a new folder, and save your file into it. This is once again easier if you made a separate save. Less files to look through.
Finally to see if you did it all right. Close the DAI Save Game Editor and paste your newly created save into your DAI Save directory. Overwrite the existing old save and load up Dragon age: Inquisition. You should be able to safely overwrite because you have a backup save still... right?
Of course you do.
If the game successfully loads then you are done! That easy! If it fails to load, paste in the backup save, and try again! Remember, the easiest way to mess it up is if you forget to Block Shift Left the same amount of times you Block Shifted Right. So be sure to never rush when following these steps. If you do you significantly increase your chances to do so.
I will be posting this as a tutorial in the General Discussion of the Save Game Editor section of these forums. And I will remain around to answer any questions. I will not answer any questions regarding Bit Shifting in Hex Workshop rather than Block Shifting. I do not know the difference, but I figured out Block shifting gave me the desired effect over Bit Shifting. No, I do not know the technical difference between the two.
Anyways, everyone good luck! And have fun with a far saner Leliana
The only data I have saying this method works is I did it with the original save from the Topic that ricco19's
method came from. I was able to recreate what he did pretty well. So it should work. For me, I have to wait until I reach her personal quest to see. I hope that any of you who are closer to this quest, or at it, have the chance to tell me that this has worked. Rather than failed.
Also if anyone needs further clarification on any of the steps, feel free to ask, for I will answer when I can.
