Hi, all the time I spent looking and the only answers I found is there is no cheats for wildfire. However digging deeper I found some info on a hex editor for the temp folder which I couldnot understand the instructions on how to change.
Digging even deeper I found a save game that has been edited so you start a fresh game with no mercs and a whopping 16mill in your account Very Happy, However the only downside is it is on hard difficulty. Works on an uptodate wildfire. I put the file and renamed it to a savegame file name as it was in german into the save game folder, starting the save game gave me an error and crashed several times trying to run it, but on a reboot the save game works!! and I have 16mill in my account.

If anyone wants the save game file let me know and I can email you MY save game from start, What I have done is loaded the german one and resaved it so it should have a 100% chance of working Smile

Or you could just start a game to your liking, save, use Jape (v 0.41 e.g.), load the saved game, chose the item 'money', set the value to whatever you like (20000 per item might be max), save, reload in-game and deposit the cash into your account Wink Of course anything else can be altered too, a list of item changes compared to JA2 vanilla is posted http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=105013 here

I have hacked money very easy for WF and JA2 original. The only problem here is that destroys the balance, its technically very easy to do.
I used memory editing tool, was under windows back then - it was called "detective story", its free.
The idea is to launch the binary, launch the editor, then go to new game, go to AIM, select any merc, select hire screen with two weeks and do not leave the screen.
Then immediately search for this value in memory. After several attempts once can pinpoint it easily.
Now change it to "-(whatever)" value you want and click freeze. Now if you click hire, the merc will be hired and will bring the money (whatever).

The algorithm, is, even if the binary stores main money value in some encrypted form, the variables that can affect this main value are not protected.
When you hire, the money specified will be reduced from your account: Main money - merc value.
If you specify minus value, say -2,000,000, obviously it will result in: Main money - (- 2,000,000) = Main money + 2,000,000.

Nothing spectacular here.

A thing that interests me though is how to improve Bobbyrays weapon selection or how to make that enemies leave weapons on ground in WF6.

I really hate ja 1.13 now, because all the variables in the system are rather "hidden behind" and you can't easily compare. For example - the accuracy value, attachment range values. Overall there is too much detail. And there is no linux port. But thats off the scope of the topic.
