A tool to open *.zip files. I use 7-Zip
A tool to edit *.xml files. I use Notepad++
Find the save files
The save files for Project Hospital are under your LocalLow Folder. Copy & Paste this into your File Manager:
[su_highlight]%appdata%\..\LocalLow\Oxymoron Games\Project Hospital\maps[/su_highlight]
Open and edit the save file
Search the *.zip file you want to edit. I highly recommend to create a backup copy of the file.
Open the ZIP file, there’s only one XML file in it. Extract it to anywhere on your harddisk and open it with Notepad++.
You can also edit it directly if 7-Zip knows where to find Notepad++ (Extras > Options > Editor).
In the XML file search (CTRL + F) for “balance”. You should find the line <m_currentBalance>xxxxxx</m_currentBalance>.
Create the new save file
Insert the modified *.xml back into the *.zip file (Drag & Drop) replacing the existing file. Or if you modified it directly in the ZIP, just save it and close Notepad++, 7-Zip should offer you to update the modified file.
At last you need to make shure, the *.xml file has the exact same name as the *.zip does. If your *.zip is called “Save1.zip” the file in it has to have the name “Save1.xml”.
Done. Close Notepad++ and 7-Zip, start the game and open the new save file. Enjoy Project Hospital whitout money worries.
