Borderlands Save Editor (Revision 10)

This editor is no longer being updated and does not support newer Borderlands patches. It is highly recommended that you use WillowTree# instead.

Newer build of my Borderlands save editor, fixes the problem with editing Roland (Soldier) saves, as well as several other minor changes and fixes.

    Hey, I was trying to mod a scorpio grade item with this, but I do not know if this modding device works for the xbox 360 or not. Whenever I tried to open it it failed (for lack of a better word)

  8. Hiryu says:

    That’s why you guys backup your saves before messing with anything. Also, to the xbox or ps3 guys, this is for the pc version. Consoles don’t get free mods.

  9. rebel_ink says:

    How do I get the edited save files to load. Every file I have edited starts as a brand new game, including intro video. None of the changes I make are saved. I am using windows 7, steam goty edition.

  10. ryan says:

    You need modio once you finish editing you open modded file then rehash resign and save to device

  11. Troy von Epic says:

    I’d say 8 out of 10 times I try to open a 360 save on WT (Win 7, most combinations of compatibility modes and admin privileges tried), it will freeze up, and not load. The Weapon Editor will load saves, but when I try to load via menu or drag-and-drop, WT locks up.

    Anyone else getting this? I’m trying to find out what’s doing this.

  12. DerBro says:

    I have Borderlands Version 1.4.1 and Save Editor Rev. 10.
    First I did not want to use this program on my character but then in lvl 55 I just want to boost my weapon´s lvl to make them stronger.
    But I can´t set my characters lvl value back to 55 again.

    I´ve maked a backup file of course.
    Is there an update for Rev. 10 or are you going to publish Rev. 11?

      Increase the XP. You will level up when you load up the save file. I discovered that when I dropped myself from 56 to 50.

  13. Shadow says:

    For some reason., Everything works great but i use the saved editor and my exp bar is permanently stuck it doesn’t increase. How can i fix this?

    • Arilyn says:

      Re-edit your save game, change the xp value from a few points, save again and test in the game to see if xp increase properly again.
      I got the same behaviour once and it is how I fixed it.

  14. Brian says:

    I made a level 14 hunter and put a custom sniper on him, and when I play on that character I get these weird random screen flashes and a beeping sound. Anyone have any ideas?

    how do i load weapons into the save from a txt file or from my clipboard please tell me because i just download the txt files so how do i load the weapon in there from the txt file or the code in my clipboard please respond?

  34. Somebody says:

    I accidentally deleted a save file earlier, so I’m using this program to remake that save and give myself back the weapons I liked most. My only question is I try to add weapons to the save file, but every time I try I either get an error or whatever I put in the box disappears and is replaced by what was in their before. How do I just make it so this doesn’t happen? I want my Eridian weapons back!

  42. Famicry says:

    How much can you find an answer to my question (How do I level weapon over 48 (5 cuality) in this version 10? =) Since WillowTree on SourceForge (WillowTree # -2.2.1) allows you to make weapons … at least 71 level, etc. Sorry for my english… I use a translator 🙂
