I've been reading this:

Read in all of the values as specified. Eventually you will get to the part where you can read in the "records" which one of them contains the character data according to that site. If you have any experience programming I started making a program to do this but gave up because lack of interest/start to get complicating.

Well I made a small program that may or maynot help you. This has so far only been tested on fairly early on saves (starting out chars). It will just search for the values in the CON file and report possible places that they may be. I am pretty sure it works good on skills (since there are so many skills) and decently on stats.

Link to prog: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

Steps:
1. Open up program.
2. File > Open then select your CON file.
3. Enter in your characters base stats. What your stats are when wearing no items that add to your stats.
4. Click search. If it finds the offset it will report it to you. If it finds multiple offsets it mean you should backup your CON file and try each one seperately.
5. Once it has found the offset change the stats to any number between 0-255 and then click save.
6. Same steps for gold and skills.

Found multiple offsets. I would use another save or backup the save and try each offset.

Are they the base skills? As in the skill level before you add equipment bonuses. It was based on someone elses research, I don't have Oblivion and couldn't test it very throughly. It works by simple searching for the values much like you would in a hex editor, that is why it sometimes finds the values multiple times making it not work very good.

Ok i think i get what you are saying i'm going to try modding a new profile & mod the Skills first then try the Attributes, i be back to tell you what happend.

I have been testing the tool you made & it won't work on big files or files you played for a long time.

i think i know what the problem with the stats is. you forgot to put alteration in the program. its not listed under the skills section so when yu search for your skills you are missing a number and it wont find the offset. any chance of you fixing this anytime soon?

im not really sure whether it should still work or not but my guess is no. for a real answer we're probably going to have to wait for dschu012 to post. and as for the key to the fighting area i never got anything like that so i dont know about that either.

i want to be able to do it myself, not just download someone else's work (even though i did download that save). if dschu012 would just put alteration in his program then it would work fine.

Sorry in my version I have alteration. I guess I uploaded the wrong one when I uploaded it. I have been so slow to respond because I have been busy, and partially cause I am lazy. If you want to make changes yourself to the program or find out how it works here is the source
