Editing OPTIONS.SAV for longer matches

Recommended Posts


Want longer matches? Well you've come to the right place!


First off, locate your OPTIONS.SAV file, for me it is under C:\Users\Xiron\AppData\Roaming\LEGO Media\Soccer Mania\Dev0\


Open up the file in a hex editor, and look for the bytes "XX 3F", XX will be 00, 01, or 02 depending on what match length you saved it as. The bytes should be at offsets 55-56 in the file.

The byte you want to change is the first byte, the one that ISN'T 3F.


By default, 00 is a 4 minute match, 2 minute per period. For every number increase, a whole minute gets added to the period. So 00 is 2 minute periods (4 minute match), 01 is 3 minute (6 mins), 02 is 4 minutes (8 min), 03 is 5 minutes (10 mins), 04 is 6 minutes (12 mins), etc.


Don't freak out when you go in the game and look at the time in the options, it will use text from other settings. ;)
