That is because the file is not stored as plain text and is raw binary data. Notepad then attempts to try to load it as plain text and as you can see fails miserably to make anything of it.

Realistically you can't so I suggest learning how to play the game properly rather than editing your save state :P

Yeah... the file could be anything from a binary representation of in-memory data structures to encrypted plain text. Without decompiling the app, I probably couldn't tell you which. Totally not worth the effort.
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.


Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
