Singleplayer game with cheat protection, why? I don't get it. Its singleplayer so why do devs bother if I cheat or not wtf? I was playing one of the first missions and those 3 turret heavy ships started spawning and killing me (they deal insane damage even when alone they can destroy you in 5 second from full health). Before that I was easily completing missions. Talk about difficulty spikes(I was even playing at easy difficulty with upgraded light mech). If you can't get the difficulty right at least allow us to cheat you morons.
Changing values doesnt work but you can still freeze the value. Then u can get all of the upgrades of same tier at one go then unfreeze the value. Do a Test of Fire to make the credit goes up. If it does then u can do the mission without problem, if it didnt, restart game and it should work.
