Hacking the Snoopy's Street Fair

Snoopy's Street Fair is one of Beeline's games that interest me. As mobile gaming starting to acquire more casual gamers and so is the possible profit that developers can make.

Beeline, the maker's of Smurf's Village and Zombie Cafe, is one of the successful companies that profit from games that are free. One may ask how can they make money from games that are free? The answer is In-App Purchase. You buy things and upgrades using real money. Yes, real bucks. And this is what pains me.

I will help you to add Snoopy dollars and coins. It takes me almost 15 minutes of trial and error to hack it. And you don't need to jailbreak you iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

Things you need:
iPhone file browser (I used Diskaid, download herehttp://www.digidna.net/products/diskaid),
Hex Editor (I used Hex Editor Neo, download here http://www.hhdsoftware.com/free-hex-editor),
Decimal to Binary convertor (http://easycalculation.com/decimal-converter.php)

1. Attached your device to your PC and open Diskaid.
2. Go to Apps>Snoopy's Fair>Library>Preference. There you will find the file com.capcom.snoopy.plist, right click it and copy to PC. Put it in your desktop.
3. Open Hex Editor and drag the plist file (com.capcom.snoopy.plist) from your Desktop into it.
4. Find your coins, as for  me my coins is 644, 805 which corresponds to 9d 6c5 in Hex, as highlighted in the picture below. Once you find it the Snoopy bucks/dollars is just before it. Mine was 12, which is c. Use the Decimal to Hex convertor so that you can easily locate your coins in the plist file. I change my Snoopy dollars which is 12 to 5000, in Hex it is c to 1388.
5. Save it. Then copy the edited plist file back to your device and replace the original file. That's it.

Here's my Snoopy's Street Fair. I used some of my dollars already.


I hope it helps you. If your have any questions feel free to comment.

  3. Hello, thanks for the nice post on snoopy's fair. It also pains me that this game has in-app purchases. However I am on a MacBook and the file com.capcom.snoopy.plist is not in the folder. there is lots of other files in there with names similar like com.*****.plist but not that one. Any ideas?

  9. I try to open the DiskAid but in my app root i can't find the snoopy fair why?

  10. You have to go into settings (the top right corner) and check all the boxes to see the files in diskaid.

    the file has changed it was 'com.capcom.snoopy.plist'
    is now 'player_data.dat'

    its in the documents file i think.

    from here make sure that your snoopy app is off. double click the square button and hold the snoopy app. then click the minus, it will stop your coins going up so you can find the correct hex.


    This did work for me on my ipad 2. although it did take me the best part of an afternoon.

  14. hey everyone, for those of you who cant find the snoopy app in the app list, you need to go up the top left of the screen where it says "disk aid" then go to "preferences" and then "advanced" and tick the box that says "display all apps even if they don't have 'file sharing' enabled"
    although right now i still don't know how to get the "library" folder up, but i will keep you posted :)

  16. Hi Rodnie.

    Nice post. But could you tell us more on how to locate the coins n dollars in the Hex Editor?

    I also don't understand the part where u said "Snoopy bucks/dollars is just before it". I don't see anything familiar in your screen shot.

    (By the way, when I open up my game app, the amount of coins is always changing automatically so instead I tried to locate my dollars in hex. Will this method work?).

    For those using mac, try these instead (I'm using mac and these 2 work easily for me):
    a) instead of DiskAid, use iFunBox for Mac - http://i-funbox.com/ifunboxmac/
    b) instead of Hex Editor Neo, use Hex Edit - http://hexedit.en.softonic.com/mac/download

    Many thanks.
