If you are unable to save after editing, you will need to change the permissions for the entire file. Be sure you're logged in as adminstrator, then go to the "data" file, right click on "levels" file, select Properties, the Security tab, in the top box choose Users, below that choose Edit, then in the bottom box, put a check mark next to each of the permissions. Save and close out of this, then go back and try modifying the file in Notepad again, it should work.

That's pretty cool. Thanks so much for sharing and pfalcioni thanks for permissions info, that did the trick.

Thanks hun , you're a star

I had all but given up on this game cos I was stalled on 4:10 , I hadnt bothered with it for over a week
I came here for some tips , saw and then used your cheat
I gave myself the teeniest of advantages timewise (I wanted the thrill of trying to beat the clock , giving myself tons of time would have spoilt that) and managed it on my second try .. yay , lol

Its nice to know that if a level is beating me and spoiling the whole game , then theres a way to get past it

For those who can't Save - Are you using Notepad?

When you change the .dsc File in Notepad and then Close the File, it will ask you whether to Save the changes or not.

You have to click YES. Hope that helps!

For those who can't save (i couldn't either, using wins7)

Instead of saving, press save as, and save to desktop, then delete origional and then pop saved as copy into folder, hey presto!

Worked fine for me. To find files, right click MKFP icon, chose "properties" and then "find target". It will take you to files. Choose "data", then "levels". Find the .dsc level you want. Right click to open. Choose "open with" and then choose "notebook". After making changes, just choose save under file.
Thanks so much for the tip. On the wrong page to see your name but you know who I mean.

I opened the file in notepad but I don't see anything that says "worker speed" or "deadline" - how do I know what to change?

Thanks for the cheats Cherubabies! I've been having a lot of fun but I can't change the files for the wolves, snakes, ghosts, etc. I don't see anything when I view those .dsc files that looks changeable in that way. I'd prefer to just skip them altogether - I don't like those kinds of whacking games... Any input?

A little fishie

Change the Level Time.

For example, in Level 5.7 where it says Level Time 50 (I think it's 50 or 100 can't remember exactly), reduce it down to 10 or whatever you want. Then only 10 Ghosts will attack you instead of 50.

Open Windows Explorer, go to My Computer, go to C: Drive. Then down to Program Files, etc.

If you use Vista, besides what Cherubabies said to do; you also need to do the above by pfalcioni. XP's you don't have the problem of Administration permissions.

And it can still be challenging. Just put the levels up to the next hundred; such as 826, make it 900. And workers speed, just bump it up to 25.

That still keeps the game challenging, but winnable.

Thanks Cherubabies and Pfalcioni, for the great help.

I changed the deadline from 231 to 1231 on level 2.5 & finished without hearing the "finish before nightfall" statement, yet on the map it shows a silver shield instead of the gold flag. What am I doing wrong? Do I have to change something else?

Go from 231 on deadline up to 300. And increase player speed up to 25.

Unsure, but jumping deadline by 1000 may cancel out the gold. I just increased my deadlines up to the next hundred number, and increased player speed on all levels up to 25. Seems to work so far, gold all the way thru 4.10; so far.

Nope changing Time Level does not change the GOLD.

I changed my deadline to 2000 and I still got GOLD on all Levels!

Could you Please help me 'whack the wolves'? I have Windows 7 and can't even get to the program files to change anything.

Amen to that! Thank you for this info. I passed all of the whacking levels the first time I played the game. I'm playing under a different profile and can't pass the one with wolves. Thanks to you, I can kiss that part of the game goodbye! LOL

Thanks for the info. To my non-computer saavy mind, it took a few tries to even find what I needed to do. Which you explained well, my brain just kept fading. lol. Haven't tried to change anything yet, almost time for bed.

But may I ask? What is spawn/respawn?
