If my understanding is correct, you want us to collaborate on a ROTKXI "Skills Editor" that would enable the \Koei\RTKXI\Media\scenario\Scenario.S11 file edition ?
If so, you can count me in, although I'm more interested in deciphering code or writing a small program than playing ROTK11 itself, which I find to be a bit boring.
I just want to give you a fair warning: I'm still a Python amateur, and depending on the code/tasks that needs to be done, I'm not entirely sure I can handle everything the way a real programmer does. i.e.: I might not be able to implement every feature due to my lack of knowledge and experience in program writing. I might take a lot of time to create something "simple", but I'll give it my best shot.

There are different levels of cheat, if you want to find the address that stores the "money" value and change it (considering it's static and that developers haven't attempt any protection), all you have to do is scan the memory a few times, discover the address and change it (and save it to a table for future use), other cheats may be a bit more sophisticated and require some assembly coding.
RoTK XI is easy to cheat, all static and unprotected, but SIRE does use some simple assembly coding in order to make some nice things. For example: make new skills (beyond 100) that are the combination of other skills.
I've talked to rk12 (SIRE developer) and got addresses and assembly codes for chinese version, now I want to adapt some of it to japanese version (and maybe english version). But that's a bit too much work for one person, besides I'm not a pro to make a nice app that does code injection, a trainer like killaz did (but it's not a must — we can just make a cheat table for cheat engine).
Anyway, all I've done up to the moment was connect the dots and prove it's possible by making one small change, there is still plenty to be done/studied. Some tasks include:
- Translate documentation from chinese to english
- Remap the addresses
- Test them
- Adapt assembly codes (basically remapping addresses)
- Create a cheat table, maybe a trainer (app that changes the mem used by the game - friendlier than cheat engine)
- More testing ...
A lot of work you see. Probably killaz is the only guy in the forum with expertise in making a trainer, but I don't know if he's still interested ... it took years for me to appear with the codes you know

Only you can tell whether you're interested in learning about assembly, cheating in games, code injection, etc (you're probably not interested in the more dull tasks like translating). If the answer is no, then just pass it, not what you're looking for.

You could also have a look at Van's Editor, it works for japanese version despite being all in chinese.
