For The Warp – How to Edit Your Save Game (Cheats)

Annoyed by bad luck? You just need a little more HP? Give yourself the upper hand with extra money, fuel or equipment – or a better deck. Test out all cards, make yourself a powerful build.

How to Cheat

The Save File

If you just want to give yourself more HP for the Boss, test a card or start with the ultimate Deck – you just need to edit your save file.

If you playing already, just hit escape to open the menu and choose “Quit to Menu” – otherwise start a new game and quit as soon as possible. Now exit the game and open the file explorer.

Copy and paste:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\For The Warp\User Data\Default\saves\

Into the navigation bar and it should take you to the right folder.

There you see a:


Which you can open and edit with any plain text editor. Notepad++ or Sublime Text are recommended – but windows notepad will work just fine and I’ll assume you use that.

Hit Format->Word Wrap to make it easier to see the whole file.

It should be pretty self-explanatory what’s what – there are keys like “hp”, “fuel”, “money” etc. followed by values – some are just numeric values, “equipment” and “deck” are lists of numbers inside square brackets. What ID means what card I’ll list below.

If losing or breaking your save would make you sad, make a copy before fiddling with it!

Fun and Powerful Decks

Now that you have free rein, you can tweak your deck or start with your perfect build.

My personal favourite is this:

deck: 57,57,57,57,89,89,89,92,92,91,91,96
equipment: 16,4,17
  • Start with Gatling Gunning (57) the Enemies (draws another card)
  • Then use Capacitor Charger (89) a few times (boost points based on played cards… and draws another card)
  • Shield Boost (91) fills your shield with boost points in one go
  • Capacitor Cannon (92) deals 10x(!!!) damage of boost points and does not drain them
  • Burst Shields (96) – pretty optional
  • RAM Upgrade (16) let’s you start right away with chaining cards
  • Auxiliary Reactor (4) allows for enough energy to fire the cannons twice
  • Emergency Charger (17) starts you off with some shields – allows for more secure boost point accumulation

Fights last at most 3 rounds, then you should have 25+ boost points.

What you can’t do

  • Fill your Deck with Gatling Gun (57) and never let you opponent go. The hard limit is using 10 cards – then you “core is overheated” or something and the game forces you to end your turn (bummer, I know).

What’s the most OP deck you can come up with? Leave a comment!

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
