Edit: Updates!

- Added location of Unity games for Firefox
- Added how to unhide Library folder for Mac


Purpose of this

Hey guys, I've been around here a bit using the hacks and all but I haven't posted before so this would be my first. I would like to contribute to the community as well and I saw an opportunity.

I'm currently using a Mac to play on Kongregate and I've been searching how to use the Sol. Editor on mac, where the files are located and among the top searches I didn't find one that really helped me and I had to dig into my system with a few guides to find them, so I hope this helps fellow mac users. If I'm doing anything wrong please do let me know ><

Also please do let me know if I can make any improvements, thank you :)

Hacking with Sol. Editor

1. Location of files

Now for Mac, the location for the Sol. files are as follow

Google Chrome - Macintosh HD/Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Pepper Data/Shockwave Flash/WritableRoot/#SharedObjects/RANDOMLETTERS/
chat.kongregate.com
assets.kongregate.com

Firefox - Macintosh HD/Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/#SharedObjects/RANDOMLETTERS/
chat.kongregate.com
assets.kongregate.com

Unity Games (Firefox) - Macintosh HD/Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/Unity/WebPlayerPrefs/chat_2ekongregate_2ecom/

USERNAME being the username you chose for your account
RANDOMLETTERS for a bunch of random characters including numbers and alphabets

Now I believe that the Library path is hidden by default. To access it, you can manually go to the folder,
(With Finder in focus, from the top left hand bar click Go > Go to folder...)



Or simply while the Go menu is open, hold the alt/option button and the Library path should appear.

UPDATE - How to unhide Library folder
 

Type in Terminal application
 

       chflags nohidden ~/Library  

which will un-hide the Library folder in Finder and other GUI applications. After this you might wish to hide the other directories in Library so that they won't show in Finder Searches etc.. To do that:

cd
cd Library
chflags hidden *


2. Method of hacking

2.1 Just replacing Sol. files

I know this is pretty much common sense but I'd just add it in anyway if it helps anyone.
Remember, you need to play the game for it to save a file before it will appear. And don't edit the sol file while the game is running.

First you need to search for the hacked/completed sol. files


I'm going to be using Rogue Soul 2 as an example, so I type that in and you get some results.




Go on to the Sol Files section


Choose the one you want


And really just follow the instructions. So you download the file, extract the data from the file and replace the file according to the location above and the instructions. And then you get your badges.





 

2.2 Manually editing the sol file

Remember, you need to play the game for it to save a file before it will appear. And don't edit the sol file while the game is running.

First you gotta locate the file. Here we already know the path, but if you don't you can try looking around in the relevant chat.kongregate.com or assets.kongregate.com until you find it, or do it by time stamp. (See which file is last modified)


Alright so from you here you open it up.


I went in to #sgrg2 because it made the most sense to me.



From here you can modify as many things as you like, but I'll be heading into Stats.sol



There's a badge for 5x kill combo so go in and look around



Find the field relevant to what you want to edit, over here I found the combo and I set it to whatever I like. Over here you can edit anything you want to make the game easier for you or simply just awarding you the badge, and you can explore the different sol files as well.

After that, make sure you SAVE and then replace the sol file.

THE END
