I play almost exclusively old-school RPGs mare by various versions of RPG Maker. Here are some tips.

First (you may already know) most values are stored as twice the in-game value plus one. For example, if you have 10 potions, you would search for 21 (ten times two plus one.)

Second, I've never had to widen the search range from the default 4 byte search. That narrows things down a bit.

Third, some values are more difficult to find because they don't start at zero. If you're having trouble finding, say, experience points or character attributes such as strength, first search for an unknown value, wait until the value increases, then search for "Increased by..." value times two. For example, let's say your strength is 5. Search for an unknown value, wait until your strength increases (or better yet, run several "unchanged value" second searches before your strength increases. Then let's say your strength increases by 1. Run the second search for "Increased by..." and enter 2. You would not add the one when searching on a changed value, that's only for searching on absolute values.

Save your game BEFORE making any changes and SAVE TO A DIFFERENT SLOT after making changes in Cheat Engine or any other similar program! Note that if you change attributes (strength, agility, etc.) the difference is noticeable immediately, but if you alter character experience, you won't see any difference until you fight your next baddie, then you will level up according to whatever amount of experience points you gave yourself.

Fourth, VALUES CHANGE LOCATION when loading a saved game! If your strength value was at A12B9326, and you stopped the game and then reloaded it, your strength value will almost certainly not be the same. Therefore, try to make changes all at once, especially because:

Fifth, if some values are hard to find, keep in mind that they're usually located near similar values. For example, if you have found your potions value and it's at aaaa1111, and you search for the value of another inventory item and come up with a bunch of hits, it's likely to be the one closest to aaaa1111.

Last, and this is a repeat, save in a different slot each time you make a change. Following these tips, I have been able to hack at least 20 RPG Maker games. I don't recall finding one I couldn't hack, except one in which the values didn't change, but in that game, it didn't matter--there would have been no benefit in changing values, because there were no battles, monsters, etc.

Interestingly, I am trying to hack that exact game, and a search brought me back to this page.

When you search for unknown initial values, it doesn't display anything on the left, but if you look up above, you'll see the word "Found" with a number after it. Usually it's way into the millions, because it's searching every value. From there, you can do "increased by" searches, and then numbers will show up on the left.

That said, I have been trying to hack Lilly and Sasha for hours and have gotten nowhere. Fortunately, John Wizard games don't involve random encounters are are fun to play even if you can't hack them.

Thanks, webgrunt, I am 100% sure I've found the strength values of my character in the game Last Scenario, they are 3.
Lets say my strength is 80.
Cheat engine comes up with 3 values:
161
161
151

I tried changing the values to

401
401
391

Which should make my strength to 200, because when I equip my weapon, my strength goes up to 104, which changes the values like so:

209
209
199

So I just followed the logic of First value = (what I want)*2 + 1, second value = (what I want)*2 + 1, third one = (what I want)*2 + 1 - 10, but when I get back ingame, it gets reset to 209, 209 and 199 again...
Any tips on how to do it? Freezing the values in cheat engine doesn't help, my strength is still 104/80 (when unequipped)
