How to mod Sonic Adventure 2 Battle: Chao Garden #1
How to use Chao Editor Redux

Chao Editor Redux is a save editor which edits the savedata.bin files found within Sonic Adventure 1 and 2's Chao saves. In order to use it, you will need to first extract savedata.bin from the main save. Load savedata.bin into the editor, change what you want edited, then click the Save button. If it's a Sonic Adventure 1 save, then that's it, you're good to go; if it's a Sonic Adventure 2 save, then you'll need to also load it into SA2C Hash Fixer and fix the hash. Once everything is all said and done, inject savedata.bin back into the save file, rehash/resign, then put it back on your USB/HDD and load it from the game menu. (Modio users read the notice at the end of my post.)

A word of advice. This editor can mod everything to its utmost maximum. The max stat achievable in-game is 3266 for each stat, but it can be modded to be as high as 65535. The game is not designed with values that high in mind, especially when it comes to races. Modding your fly, power, luck, and intelligence stats above a certain amount will cause some races to be unbeatable. Personally, I prefer to keep my stats around 3500; this avoids any issues with races.

Also, textures override colors. If you have a Chao that is both colored blue and textured gold, you will only see the gold. Model overrides everything.

NOTICE:
People have been reporting their saves getting corrupt after using the editor. One thing that I've noticed between them is that they all use Modio to rehash/resign their save, and switching to something else has almost always fixed the issue. Normally, I'd advise against Modio in any situation (specifically because it tends to cause problems like this). If you're getting a corrupt save and are using Modio, then switch to Horizon or Infinity.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them below and I will answer them to the best of my abilities.
