  3. NoU4296 says:

    whenever i click on it to run it in WinRAR it just brings me back to the folder and doesnt actually run the program what do i do?

  4. RagmanII says:

    First off, awesome editor. Last time I used it was a year ago and I really appreciate you keeping up with all the changes. Thank you.

    When I try and open a save I get the error: Failed to load save: invalid or unsupported version.

    I am running the xbox version, extracted save with horizon. TU10 the game of the year edition.

    I even tried to open some of my old saves and I get an SHA1 error, not sure what that is about. Any ideas?

  5. Grim ร˜ says:

    Just started using this, i have some experience using save editors. But you “Bank” and “Unbank” buttons don’t seem to be working. There also isn’t a shortcut for them. I also suggest the ability to highlight multiple items to B/UB as well as an option to sync items currently selected.

  6. Navi says:

    Does the current version of the save editor include the most recent buffs from the loot hunts?

  7. Veggieman says:

    I cant seem to mod the general skill points, it allows me to change it and save over my old save, but when i load up the game, they go back to the original amount of skill points

  8. me says:

    hi, i’ve edited my save to make me lvl 50 and gave myself a few weapons and saved the changes but when i save it to my pen drive and load it up on my ps3 it still says i’m lvl 9 with no changes made. is there anything i’m doing wrong because i’ve followed the guides step by step but it just won’t save the changes :S this is my first time trying to edit a game :S

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Have you actually loaded into the game? The description of your character wont change until you actually load it up.

      • Fox234 says:

        I have the same issue. I’ve loaded into the game and have checked every change. Nothing changes. I’ve added currency, weapons, levels, etc and nothing comes through. This is the PC version. There’s no obvious errors so idk what the issue could be.

  9. Xbox player says:

    Hi, awesome save editor !

    I have a problem with my xbox 360 savegame, I extract my save with USB XTAF and I put it on my desktop but when I try to open, it says “Failed to load save, cannot load xbox 360 con files, extract save using Modio or equivalent”

    Plz help me !

  10. Xbox player says:

    If it’s possible make an update with system for the badass points, it should be enormous !!!!

  11. dropshots says:

    How do you fix the Invalid or unsupported version error?

  12. edvinux59 says:

    Fast travel isn’t working for me i marked all maps started game and no maps was unlocked..:/ Any help? (Crappy english)

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Fast Travel locations are unlocked by completing the story missions. Checking them without doing that also won’t do you any good.

  13. Anj0 says:

    Hey guys, i found a problem. WHen i try to enter in a friend party to play together my Borderlands 2 crash, and back to the menu, this only happens in modded character, i tested this with a non-modded character and it worked. Can some1 solve my problem?? Thx

  14. AznToxin says:

    Can you still mod weapons and skills? I tried to no success and I read somewhere on se7ensins that Gearbox made a patch. I’m on 360.

  15. MT1994 says:

    Does anyone know how to create a new character at level 72 with all missions completed?

    • DOMIN8 says:

      You’d have to add each individual mission manually. It would be much easier to just use Python and and the mission data file of your choice.

  16. Rex60808 says:

    It is not working for me, I think this application needs to be updated

  17. crysis says:

    hey quick question everytime i save it as a xbox360 file and try and upload it to horizon it says that i have to save it as a vaild xbox live save file but in the pulldown menu im saving it as a xbox file do i have to be running horizon online in order to inject the file into horizon if so how do i run horizon online???

  18. DarkExile says:

    When i go to load my character “which is up to date with the latest patch” i get an error that says “Failed to load save: invalid SHA1 hash” how can i fix this?

  19. Angelus says:

    I was curious if I could use this save editor to switch my PC saves over to the Xbox 360 or PS3? and if so, how. If not then any recommended site to switch it over?

  20. Satvir says:

    Hey DOMIN8 any site where I can get the weapon codes as somes sites have closed down.

  22. J-Lui says:

    Is this available for windows 7? Because everytime I click the DOWNLOAD link, it just stays loading

  23. LULU says:

    the sand hawk canot be spawned

  24. Noobed says:

    Do import buttons work?

    Created a new Psycho, imported everything from lvl 41 zerker, nothing changes? Visited areas are the same, xp doesn’t change, challenges don’t update…

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Visited areas should be the same if you imported World data. Make sure your XP is synced to your level. If you imported Stats, you should have the same Challenge progression as your other character.

      • Noobed says:

        I imported everything from 41 zerker.

        Nothing changed in this new save/character I was making.

        Zones (visited/unvisited) didn’t change. Completed/current quests didn’t change. XP and level remained at 1.

  25. kubowler99 says:

    After download, I keep getting invalid zip file format. Attempted to open using both WinZip and WinRAR. It’s probably on my end, but can’t seem to figure out the cause. I’m using WinZip 15.0.

    • kubowler99 says:

      nm – looks like it was something with Chrome. Downloaded using IE w/o issue. Never would have thought the fix would have been ‘Use IE’

  26. KungPowSlendy says:

    Okay, Does anyone have ANY idea on how to fix the fact that whenever I click on the Gibbed icon on my desktop, nothing happens? I have .net 4 and horizon. Is there anything else that I would need to open it?

  27. deamonaz says:

    hey i tryed using the way u said to for ps3 and it did not work

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Who are you talking to?

      What point are you getting hung up at?

    • whoareyou says:

      you need to use BSD to decrypt the file before using the save editor. the save editor do not have the save decryption. After you use BSD to decrypt, right click the SYS-DATA, then click open folder location (don’t close BSD, you will use it at the end). Then open your save editor and navigate to that folder and open the SYS-DATA. Make sure you click the drop down menu to PS3 Save in Open dialog. Do your thing to edit it. Then click save. Then go back to BSD, click to encrypt it. then boom, you are done.

  28. tu rrds says:

    So everything about this is great and thank you for making this but I have only one problem, whenever I add skill points to the save, they never show up. The skill points for the level increase do put I was wonding if I am doing something wrong or not.

  29. whoareyou says:

    Is there any way to edit the golden key? I only have 4 golden key and it is annoying to use the PS3 exploit since I only have 4 golden keys. I am hoping to get 20 Golden key and use the PS3 exploit less.

  30. J13Arrowz says:

    When I load my Save Files it tells me they are unsupported or invalid. How do I fix this?

  31. Fred Jones says:

    I’ve had no problems with previous versions. However, now with V 224, when I run the program (after downloading and unzipping it), Norton stops the run process and removes gibbed.borderlands2.saveedit.exe, stating “ws.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score, and one likely to be a security risk.”

    So, I thought, ok no problem, I’ll delete all the V 224 files and install the previous version. Nope, Norton is refusing to run that one now, even though that was not a problem before.

    Any suggestions from anyone?


  32. Jay Fuzz Butt says:

    When I finished modding and saved the files. I jumped on my game and everything was there but I couldn’t use them everything was in red even though my level was high enough to use them it wouldn’t let me. why is this? Please help!

  33. Marshmellowz says:

    Is there any way to get the B&B class mods like the Necromancer class mod because it always comes up as an error and will not let me edit it

  34. Taz says:

    Every time I try to put the editor on my desktop, the Gibbed Save Editor application just disappears with the message “Windows cannot find ‘C:\Users\****\Desktop\Gibbed.Borderlands2.SaveEdit.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.”

    Any suggestions on what to do?

    • DOMIN8 says:

      You can’t move the .exe out of the folder that it’s in. You can create a shortcut for it and put that on your desktop.

      • Taz says:

        When I said I put the editor on my desktop, I meant the whole folder. The .exe itself disappears in the folder after I move it out of the rar file.

  35. Derp says:

    Whats the link to download editor

  37. zapp brannigan says:

    Hi there,

    Have they patched the OP55 weapons? I just ran the update yesterday and my bank and backpack are empty! Just wondering if there’s a new gibbed coming out to address this!


  38. BALSKI says:

    whens the update coming for the new dlc? or is there no new heads/ skins

  39. Iskaldur says:

    I keep getting the invalid SHA1 hash when I am doing everything correctly. [PS3]

    1. Open Save Data in Bruteforce
    2. Decrypt Save File
    3. Open Save File in Gibbed with PS3 selected in drop down.
    Result: invalid SHA1 hash

  40. Taz says:

    I’m kind of desperate here, I don’t know what to do! I try to open the .exe in the folder on my desktop, it just disappears and says windows can’t find it!

  41. LordBraskaFFX says:

    any new updates? I know borderlands 2 released a new update taking away op 55.

  42. LordBraskaFFX says:

    also is their a way to put op 55 or 8 with RAW tab?

  43. whoareyou says:

    is there a guide with every list of the weapons that came with BL code? I tried to use the guide for modding weapon but most of the guide is in youtube and I am deaf. So is there a text guide for me to understand how to mod the weapons? I’m getting tired of spamming the golden chest and only 5% of the time it the weapon I would like to use.

  44. mildlylessanonymousdude says:

    Hey, so. I’m just getting started into really messing with save editing & modding & stuff, and this one seems like the best place to get started due to the (seemingly) fantastic community.

    I was wondering (so you can make a post to sticky or however it works on this website.)

    What is the best way to go about all this? So far All I’ve really done is mess with Gibbed’s editor and that’s about it, and only briefly into that. I never got the chance to go and make custom weapons (I miss being able to do it in borderlands 1 ._. oh how I miss you 50k machinegun elemental sniper…)

    Are there already guides published? If so links to those if you have them on hand/readily available would be amazing!

  45. TexasAg13 says:

    So I’ve followed every guide and video I can find, but when I load the save back onto the ps3, it says corrupted data. Is that because of the new patch and I just need to wait for an update, or is it user error?

  46. jaymurda30 says:

    is the new gibbed save editor out yet?

  47. Anon says:

    Hey, I’ve actually got two suggestions for the save editor:

    1.) I often run into the problem, that I try to make a weapon (base game), but it wouldn’t let me, because I need to select the correct DLC where the weapon actually comes from. Would it be possible, to only allow for weapons to be created, when you choose the appropriate DLC and take them out if the base game?

    2.) You don’t know the effects of most relics and shields (and maybe other items), because the editor only says “enable effect 1/2/3/4 etc.”. Is it possible to tell the user, what the effect actually is, without trial and error or some source on the internet? (which I haven’t been able to find yet)

    Thanks for the great work so far! I thouroughly enjoyed playing the game again without farming for hours and shitty gear!

  48. ScruffMcGruff says:

    Afternoon, I am new to this program and use Horizon with the 360. I have had a little hiccup in that I bring my profile over and go through Horizon. I save from the created screen and it’s a .sav. I open Gibb with the .sav under xbox and there are already stats i made on accident earlier. I save that and it overwrites the last save and i go back to Horizon. I retrieve the file and it says successful. I save everything to the usb and put it back into the console and put it back in my hard drive. I start the game and i don’t have any stats or weapons i created. Any idea? Do I have to restart Gibb? Sorry if i seem like an idiot

  49. John says:

    Hey, I was wondering if someone could explain why in the earlier versions of the game you could mod the skill points to 240 (or somewhere around there), but now the max you can mod in is 45-50? I used to be able to screw around with this and max the account so I can find glitches without getting gibbed (lol), but now it feels like you can barely mod anything. Could someone explain this to me?

  50. Icdan says:

    For some reason, everytime I try to apply ‘El Diablo’ and ‘Mess With The Bull’ to my Salvador it won’t stick.
    Can this be possible because I have the legal version?
