Hex-Editor questions

Hello, everyone. I'm a New user here, and I was hoping that I might be able to get some information regarding hex-editing. I was hoping to change the data for some of my current party members, such as Llednar or some other interesting unit.

I took a look at a similar topic made by Sephiran, which covered the topic somewhat extensively, but the problem is that I'm completely new to using a hex-editor, and when I do try to find the values mentioned, I can't seem to locate them.

Would anyone mind giving me a bit of a breakdown as to how I might be able to edit my party (Job, class, AAs, etc) or maybe point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

A hex editor is just a program that lets you edit a file as if it were text. Since code and data is all stored in files, this lets you edit code and data.

In this case, you are trying to edit data. You need to learn where in the file the data in question is (the "address" of the data), and then go to it (usually using Ctrl+G, or search through the editor's menus, to bring up the "Go To" dialog). You then make your changes, save, and test.
