Just a hint for an old game... I picked up Faery Tale Adventure 2 in the
bargain bin and found out by accident that you can sell an item, save the game
in the middle of the sale, quit out, restart, finish the transaction for the
alotted gold, and retain the sold item.
Faery Tale Adventure 2 comes factory equipped with the ultimate cheats for
those of us who hate starting out as peons.
On the FTA2 cd is a folder called "Promo" full of saved games. Copy these
saves to your FTA2 main folder where ever you installed it on your hard drive
(make sure you have any of your own saves backed up in another folder because
these will probably overwrite them).
(IMPORTANT NOTE: The saves off the cd will be set as "read only". After you
copy them to your hard drive you can right click on each of the saves and
uncheck the read only attribute on them. If you don't do that you can't save
over them and the game will crash if you try. If you don't want to mess with
the attributes, just start off by saving your games in a fresh empty slot.)
Start the game and go the the options menu and select "load" and you will see
a long list of games you can pick from to jump into different parts of the
game. Most of these saves are just for sightseeing, as they will start you off
missing most of the beginning of the game.
The useful one is the save "hatak". Load this save and you will start the game
in Hatak with some special items. Aside from the obvious goodies (all
characters have mirthil weapons and armor now, all attributes maxed) Julian
has 2 special items in his inventory. The first is a book called the "Tour
Guide" and if you double click on it it will bring up a menu that will let you
teleport to any location in the game! The second is called the "juicer" and
using that will bring up a menu to set all your stats, skills, and mana.
Load "hatak", use the tour guide to teleport to Wildevarr - Padavis -
Riddenbutter's and you will be transported to the regular game starting point
on day 1, week 1 ready to begin the game, but now with superior equipment and
stats the way you want them (the brothers will start out on this save with all
attributes maxed, but you can use the juicer to lower them to a more
challenging level if you want).
Also, since the brothers will start this game knowing all the spells, you can
take all the spell scrolls you find in town and sell them to the pawnshop. You
will end up with just over a thousand gold this way, more than enough to get
any other goodies you want.
