i didnt click freeze and now im lvl 0 with negative xp

you must change the value of 0 in 9999999999 for exemple

i cant download cheat engine 5.4 C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\My Documents\bryz\CheatEngine54.exe.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.

Try again later, or contact the server administrator. try downloading it from there... cheat engine 5.5 works also but you don't have to freeze it.

download it from cheat and désinstall the others cheat engine

My XP increased... but the LVL has n't .. what must be the wrong??

HALP. Didnt click freeze and im at negative XP, and I cant see my full ammount of XP.

u can use cheat engine 5.5

anu naman yun

I used cheat engine successfully except once i close or refresh Happy Aquarium it goes back to whatever level i was on before i hacked it , what can help solve my problem?
thanks ,

this is already patched, the same method works on food thought

Even though it is patched there is still one way around it. If you change you EXP to one point before you level up and then gain one EXP it will save you level. Ive only got it to work once because i dont know at which points you level up. If anyone knows please post them on here. Thanks

One breakpoint at least is between 8049 and 8050 (level 18-19), so set your value with cheat engine to 8049 and then get 1 exp point in the game for example by cleaning your friend's aquarium

Another one at 9370-9380. This would be to achieve level 20. However it seems my levels aren't staying if i update the page. So I believe this is patched too =(

I posted the levels, none of the "cheats" seem to be working
has anyone had any luck?

i hv upgrade my level from 21 to 33 but when i refresh my page it's gone back to level 21 again.. why? cant u help me with it??

wht about level 41 & above? whts their EXP?

whenever I use the cheat engine for any hack it always comes up with the following message: what does this mean .. scan error:thread 1: stream read error

But even if it gets a 1 or 2 XP to change level you can not
only publish the poster and you can not really change
levels. What to do? runs with XP's=)
is there any possibility to get more Pearls with Cheat Engine?

me also like
I used cheat engine successfully except once i close or refresh Happy Aquarium it goes back to whatever level i was on before i hacked it

how can i get more pearls?

Yo you have to do the cheat engine level by level.
say your on level 10=1760 and you want to cheat to LEVEL 11 – EXP 2130. put in 2100 hit frozen on the cheat tool and gain the rest of the EXP legit. so you would only have to gain 30exp to get to 11.

It works well for me by the way i listed above.. :)

Also by the frozen button on the cheat tool click beside the box intill you see the plus sign beside the checked frozen box.. hope i helped..

that hack don´t work, couz i press f5 my xp returns to the same

its the same hack as listed above you just do it level by level leaving 20exp to get legit then it will stay at the next rank..

not staying, following your directions DC49, can you list step by step

OK say your on level 15 and you have 4300exp and you need 5030 to get to level 16. Do the cheat the same way as listed above with cheat engine but only do it level by level DO NOT SKIP LEVELS IT WILL NOT STAY..okay so you would change your EXP with cheat engine to 4990. So you know only have to get 30 EXP legit to level up instead of doing it all legit..also when you click frozen in cheat engine click right beside the check box for frozen when you click it you will see a minus sign click it again and you will see a plus sign. Go back to the game earn EXP it will skip ahead to what you put in then close Cheat engine. Then click home on facebook then go back to the game if it didnt stay repeat but use a lower number instead of 4990 use 4985.But it should work the first time just use a number 30 points from what you need if it doesn't work use 40 points less than what u need. if you follow these steps works great for me..
Any questions just ask..

To: DC49 ..Ok... It worked for me yesterday!!!!! I tested it first on a new profile I made followed the steps with the plus minus beside the freeze thing...level by level legitly.. worked great and stayed after refreshed... I went sign in to my good profile which is level 32 to try it on that... and now it wont work for either :(

If yall still don't get it. Recommend a good screen recorder program for free and ill put a vid up.

Hey I followed your directions and was 40 exp minus level 29 but i refresh the page after gaining my level and it still does not save. Any help?

I don't understand I hack it so i have like 100 exp to level and i earn the exp legitimately and It still wont let me keep the level.

eh i had it working, can you confirm its still working? i got from level 10 to 16, but im stuck at level 17, maybe cuz it has no award on it?

help me .....
i hacked happy aquarium with help of ur video.....and used ur step by step increament of worked for me...

i also increased my coins but i cannot use them to buy anything.........
please help

I have no idea why it is not working for yall then. It is still working well for me

well, i just am curious why it isnt working, when i boost my level up to like 200xp to level up and i earn the res in a legimate way, i cnanont but the new fish i unlocked.

I can level up from 39 to level 40, I get the window that says I reached level 40 tells me I have unlocked the fish, when I go to the store to buy the fish it is still unlocked but will not except the coins, the sale will not complete... PLEASE HELP

DC49... Can you buy fish?

Using Cheat Engine 5.5 does not work for Happy Aquarium. The game has been designed to not allow this well-known cheat. You can change your pearl and coin count, but you cannot spend them. They are, in essence, fake. Also, when you use Cheat Engine 5.5 to level up, it will show you that new things are unlocked, but you can't buy them... even with real coins. I'm sorry, but this method of cheating just doesn't work. No matter what you do or how many times you try, when you reload your page, whatever coins/pearls/xp that you cheated to get will be erased and you will see what you had before you entered the cheat. I learned this the hard way by spending lots of money and time on earning pearls and then wasting them by trying this cheat. I promise you, it DOES NOT work.

then why does it work properly for dc49? =(

really thanks for the cheat..ive successfully change the value of XP. I am also using this way to hack food value, change to 9999999. Thanks again!

after im refreshing the windows, it change back to sad!useless!!
