increase Health, Oil, and Sanity (PC Version Only)

To activate the codes, go to C:\[username]\Documents\Amnesia\Main\[player name], Open the save file you wish to alter with notepad, and press ctrl+f. Then, search one of the things (Health, Oil, Sanity, or tinderbox) and look for the command streams below. Note that the number will correlate with how many you have in-game. For example, if you have 20 tinderboxes, it'll look like <var type="2" name="mlTinderboxes" val="15" />

Once the command stream is found, edit the number at the end (ex. edit <var type="3" name="mfLampOil" val="0.000000" /> to <var type="3" name="mfLampOil" val="9999.000000" />, save, then just load up that specific save file and the amount you entered should be granted to you. Changing the health value might mess with the game

<var type="3" name="mfHealth" val="9999.000000" />Unlimited Health
<var type="3" name="mfLampOil" val="9999.000000" />Unlimited Oil
<var type="3" name="mfSanity" val="9999.000000" />Unlimited Sanity
<var type="2" name="mlTinderboxes" val="999" />Unlimited Tinderboxes
