Hi guys, due to popular demand:

To enable all maps to start you need to edit your .user - file in a hex-editor.

1. locate the goto the Userdata - Directory

MAC OS X
EITHER: /Users/<your user>/Library/Containers/com.vertex4.sunage/Data/Preferences/vertex4 entertainment/SunAge/UserData
OR: /Users/<your user>/Library/Preferences/vertex4 entertainment/SunAge/UserData

Windows 8
%APPDATA%\..\Local\Packages\CD01AB34.SunAge_ftt1e8tgj8vj0\LocalState\UserData

Windows 7
%LOCALAPPDATA%\vertex4 entertainment\SunAge\

2. edit the .user file with a hex editor
3. change the 4th last byte (it should be C8( =200=the blooding ) or something above ) to FF
4. save the file.

Run SunAge - all maps will be available.

Cheers,
Roman

Yes, the crappy user-data file didn't have any format changes.

On Windows i use Editpad Pro - ctrl+H switches to hex-editing.
On MacOsX i used 0xED and a java-hex-editor that i can't remember the name right now.

I know that this post is is old but I still dont understand what "4th byte" is
Perhaps you can make a video about it or even a simple screenshot will do

Thank you
