Quick Guide

  1. Save your game

    If the game isn't running, then start it. Use a save point in the game to save your game. If you're starting a new game and you see a difficulty or new game portal, then make sure to enter it and use a save point before continuing. Avoid saving very close to the left or top edge of the screen if possible.
  2. Find your save

    Places to look:

    • Game folder (the folder that contains the exe you used to start the game)
      Examples:
      C:\Games\I wanna Cherry\
      C:\Bad Fangames\I Wanna Guy Rock\
    • Folder within the game folder
      Examples:
      C:\Games\I wanna Apple\data
      C:\Games\I wanna Apple\saves
      C:\Games\I wanna Apple\data\saves
    • Folder in %LOCALAPPDATA% (i.e. C:\Users\<your-username>\AppData\Local\ or %APPDATA%\..\Local\)
      Examples:
      C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\I_wanna_cherry\Data
      C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\I_wanna_escape_the_rainbow_trap\Data

      Notes: This is a common save location for newer fangames. The folder you're looking for will not always match the name of the game. For example: the name of the game could be I Wanna be the 2 + 2 but the folder name in your local application data folder could be I_wanna_be_the_four or something completely random. I recommend sorting by Date Modified to help you find the folder you're looking for. In this case, the save file will most likely be in a Data subfolder.

    Examples of save file names:

    save<number>
    saveData<number>
    SaveData<number>
    save<number>.dat
    _save
    _save<number>
    save
    <game-name>_save<number>
    <game-name>_save<number>.dat

    Examples of files to ignore (do not upload these!):

    Config
    readme.txt
    config.ini
    Deathtime
    globaldata.dat
    achievements.dat

  3. BACKUP YOUR SAVE

    I recommend backing up your entire game and/or save folder before modifying any saves!

  4. Upload your save

    Upload the save you found in step 2 using the big red button. The name of the file you upload is used to help detect what type of save file it is, so you should always upload the original save; this also makes replacing your save easier since you won't have to rename it.
  5. Modify X & Y (and room number)

    warning Modifying the room number will probably crash your game (or worse)!

    Tips:

    • A standard guy block is a square with 32 pixel sides
    • You can click the red arrow buttons to move the Kid 32 pixels in the direction of the arrow
    • - X moves Kid
    • + X moves Kid
    • - Y moves Kid
    • + Y moves Kid
    • Modifying the room number is very risky. Changing it can bring you to a random room or (most of the time) cause the game to crash because the room id does not exist. Do NOT expect to move to the next room by simply adding 1.
    • Large X & Y values are normal for some games like I Wanna Be the Boshy, I Dun Wanna Be Anything II, I Wanna Be the Guy and many other fangames. This is because rooms can span multiple screens. Just because you see an X or Y value over 5000 doesn't mean it won't work

  6. Generate your new save and overwrite your save with it

    Read and follow any warnings and instructions that appear on the page. Some games must be closed before you can overwrite your old save.

  7. Load your game

    If you load your game and nothing changes, then make sure that you overwrote the correct file. Sometimes you will need to close your game before overwriting the save file for it to work. The modified save may also just crash your game, in which case you should use the backup you created in step 3 to restore your progress.
