Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness – How to Bypass the Tutorial Mode Completion Requirement (with Hex Editing)

Greetings all. Sharing this bit of knowledge in case it is of any use/interest to anyone.

Guide to Bypass the Tutorial Mode

Introduction

Normally, you’d have to go through the 3 or so hour story mode before you can play the proper mode. However, unlocking it is as easy as changing a single byte in one file.

It goes without saying, but always make a backup of your entire save directory in case things break.

The Lazy Method

If you are willing to trust an internet rando, I have provided a prepatched vanilla System.sav that enables the proper Deep in Abyss mode. Everything here is defaults, so I would not recommend using this unless you are starting fresh (or willing to start fresh). Though that said, this is really only useful for people who are only just starting the game (so I don’t believe anything would be lost, apart from any custom configured settings).

This replaces System.sav (in %userprofile%\Documents\My Games\MadeInAbyss-BSFD\Saved\SaveGames by default).

The Manual Method

Don’t trust an internet rando? Or don’t want to lose any of your settings? Don’t blame you. Here’s how to do it yourself…

Once again, always back up your saves! I can’t stress that enough.

You’ll need a hex editor for this. HxD is a good, safe, and free one.

The file we’re interested in is System.sav (in %userprofile%\Documents\My Games\MadeInAbyss-BSFD\Saved\SaveGames by default).

The offset of the byte that stores the “is the tutorial mode completed?” flag is 0x4B7. The bytes preceding it should be something like:

F0 44 00 00 87 44 01 xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx [00]

You will need to change that byte with a value of 00 (at offset 0x4B7, as mentioned earlier) to be 01.

You might also need to disable Steam cloud save temporarily (or edit the file while the game is running, then relaunch).

Hope that was of some use to someone, somewhere. And again… make a backup of your entire save directory in case things break.
