    this come when i try to open with the editor:
    the save file was decrypt first by bruteforce.
    after the first time the editor doesnt work
    (sorry for my english iam from Germany)

    • Mohammed says:

      me 2

      • MrTeabaggles says:

        lol, you two are noobs at this obvoiusly

        • Satvir says:

          They are novice at this and you’re an idiot for not explaining it to them, you need to use brute force to decrypt the save.

          • Satvir says:

            Or you need to select PS3 save from the bottom right from the drop down menu, ps. I dont own a PS3 so I don’t know.

          • jhk655 says:

            They have to decrypt the ps3 save file before they can edit it. they also need to re-encrypt that file after editing to reload that game on ps3. Even if you were able to create a new save file from nothing witt gibbed, you’d still have to encrypt it so the ps3 could read it.

  2. Michael says:

    This is not working for me at all, any suggestions? I can use it creating a new save but not load my own save or transfer the save I edited to the Xbox.

  3. Knopy says:

    Hi, i used the saveedit befor, and it worked really well. I got a new pc and would like to use it again, but the Gibbed.Borderlands2.SaveEdit.exe wont start anything. i`ve already got the net framework.
    any ideas?

  4. Navi says:

    Is there any chance Gibbed can make an editor for Borderlands Pre-Sequel?

    • Doc says:

      Yeah, I was hoping if he can make one too. Since it just came out, we might have to wait a little bit.

      • MXN says:

        Rick, I am a huge fan of you work. Your software fixes everything I dislike about Borderlands (i.e. RNG and RPG mechanics) and makes me enjoy the world and killing mobs more. Please provide us with a gibbed for TPS. That would be awesome.

        • Satvir says:

          The game just released today (US) and 17th (Europe) so you would have to wait even I’m excited for the save editor.

          • Trev says:

            Well guys I to have been looking for a save editor cause I love making the weapons on gibbed We might not be able to make some of our weapons we love from borderlands 2 right now until Rick comes out with a new editor ,but I have found something that is helpful. The borderlands 2 profile editor works with the pre sequel. You can give your self 5000 golden keys and just keep opening the chest in town until you get what weapons you want and sell the rest for money. You can also mod your bad ass tokens if you want and unlock all heads and skins . Here is the link and video showing how to use it. if you do not have it already It is very easy to use. I hope this helps everyone out until Ricks new editor comes out. 😀

          • Satvir says:

            Can you or anyone confirm that this works as the game is released on Friday so I can’t check.

          • Trev says:

            It does work man. I have done it myself. I just modded keys though. I open the chest about 10 times every time I pass through concordia.

          • Satvir says:

            The editor is for borderlands 2 not the Pre-sequel also it’s not going to work for xbox since you need Ellipse editor for xbox.

          • Satvir says:

            May I add there were issues when using it online.

          • Trev says:

            It works excellent for PC I do not know about consoles since I only play games with my awesome gaming pc It is for borderlands 2 but it works just fine with the Pre Sequel for the pc with no Issues. As seen here As for xbox users I have heared it also works with the Pre sequel. You can try if you want. Here is the xbox tutorial

          • Satvir says:

            That is for borderlands 2 which I know how to use GPD editor for xbox, I was talking about borderlands the pre sequel, as I just found a GPD editor for xbox as I can’t use it since the game is released on Friday.

          • Trev says:

            I have mentioned many times now in every post I have made that it is for Borderlands 2 profile editor ,but it works with the Pre Sequel just fine on pc. I know cause I have already used it to check. I do not know if it works on Xbox. I have been told it does so I am sure it does.

          • Satvir says:

            That only works on xbox if you don’t go online which is for offline modding.

          • Richw296 says:

            Works fine on Xbox with the Borderlands 2 GPD editor and I’m online after using it an its fine…!

          • Satvir says:

            Do you know the file name GPD to extract when using bl2 GPD editor because I useda different tool and it works online and sticks.

    • A.K.A. says:

      Would also love to see an editor for TPS. Thanks for your excellent work, Rick!

      • Trev says:

        Thanks Richw296. I do not think he will ever get it. Some people should not mod.

        • Satvir says:

          Btw we are talking about TPS not bl2, so some people lack giving clarity on information so in this case you’re not going to get get so you should stop going to school.

  5. mitch says:

    I cant paste any codes i copy

    • A.K.A. says:

      First, the obvious just in case: make sure you have the backpack or bank tab highlighted before pasting.

      If you’re trying to paste items from one character to another, you need to have two instances of the save editor open. Copy from one (leaving both windows open), then paste into the other.

      If you’re trying to paste items from codes you’ve found online, maybe you could try pasting the codes from your browser into a text document and re-copy them from that text?

      • gremlinkurst says:

        TWO instances…why the Frick’n’Frack didn’t I think of that? I’ve been doing it clumsily using ONE instance opening & closing files with Notepad to hold the data. Thanks.

  6. Trig says:

    Ive extracted the svae using modio and made sure to click the proper xbox360 save button in the bottom corner. Ive even attempted to load the profile into modio to no avail. If you could assist me with this o0r give me any advice into getting this program to work it would be appriciated.

  7. ErforthN says:

    Any chance for a Borderlands Pre-Sequel editor?

  8. Zoomas says:

    Failed to load save; re-encode mismatch. :(((( help! what to do? I do not understand

  9. Sliquid says:

    The pre-sequel just came out, you guys have to relax. If he feels like makeling something, there is no doubt that PC will be first as it is easiest. Give the man a break and appreciate the work he has done already!

  10. VoidBlitz says:

    I have Handsome Jack as my image, but will not open up. I have extracted the folders. Help?

    • Thomas says:

      I have the same issue. Nothing happens after I attempt to start the .exe file.
      I’ve also tried Administrator mode

  11. killulotz14 says:

    I hope to see BL pre squeal editor soon the program also-most works for the game as is. If you make a new save in it and put it in the game save area of Borderlands Pre-Sequel it makes the correct level but is unload-able the game thinks is incomplete DLC cuz of wrong class and such. Just a few path edits should have a working editor. Plz make this i will love you for life

  12. Navi says:

    Yeah, the only reason I asked for a Pre-Sequel Editor so soon, specifically on here, is because I know the pre-sequel is built on the same engine as Borderlands 2. So, I know I won’t get one right away, but I’m thinking Rick will be able to pull it off in relatively short time.

  13. Satvir says:

    There is a profile editor for Borderlands the pre-sequel to edit your bad ass rank.

  14. Snow says:

    Thank you for everything. 🙂

  15. HE4DSHOTJenkins says:

    Got the latest version of BRUTEFORCE to decrypt gamesave for PS3……

  16. HE4DSHOTJenkins says:

    Of course it gives me an error….. Failed to load save: reencode mismatch.

    Is this the first glimmer of hope for us ps3 users???

  17. Richw296 says:

    Hopefully Rick will let us know if he’s going to do a Pre Sequel editor so we know its coming or if he’s not going to do one…! The suspense is killing me…! Lol…! oh by the way, Rick, your a legend mate…!

  18. havz says:

    It would be awsome if Rick would adapt the existing save editor to work for the pre-sequel…the suspense is killing me too 🙂

  19. HE4DSHOTJenkins says:

    Maybe if we do like the Bloodshots and erect statue in Ricks honor……?

    • JAD says:

      I agree to this! Lets erect a giant exaggerated multi arm statue in Ricks honor and chant “RICK! RICK! RICK!” so he will make us a saved game editor for BL Pre Sequel! 😛

  20. ZXR13 says:

    When I try to open my save file I get “Failed to load save: reencode mismatch”

  21. ERS says:

    Hey, just wanted to ket you know how useful your program was for BL2. It saved me a lot of frustration, and it made the game even more fun. If you get around to making one for TPS I’m sure I’ll feel the same way. If you don’t, I still want to thank you for all your work. 🙂

  22. alucard says:

    thx for update,but cannot read pre-sequel save,hope you can make new version for this game save editor

    • Navi says:

      This editor is for Borderlands 2, not the pre-sequel. Either we wait a while, or periodically search the web for someone else who might make a save editor for the pre-sequel

  23. chaz says:

    Id be very surprised based on all the comments if gibbed/horizon combo doesn’t work for save game editing & transferring saves between pc and 360 platforms frankly though its not needed, these are not difficult games but if you want to game break within a few days of release then each to their own try playing the game and when rick & community are ready I’m sure they will let us know it’s all good tho legendaries defo drop more I reckon plus you will see them as item of the day in vending machines

    • HE4DSHOTJenkins says:

      I agree….. GBX did a great job in making useful loot more available. However, this has now become a cult following. This time its not about needing it modded cause; as Tannis would say, they are giving out exp and loot like fun- of sized candies. Its the void of pushing the envelope a bit and stepping beyond the limitations GBX has placed that we truly crave. But hay that just my opinion….

  24. ClapTrap says:

    This game needs a save editor. They should have made the bank unlimited, weapon modding standard, instead of pitiful grinder that turns crap into worse crap and costs ammo and backpack/bank slot currency(lunestones). Backpack should also be unlimted, skins and heads should be automatically added upon picking up off the ground instead of wasting my time clicking them in inventory(and choosing which weapons to discard). This game has a few unergonomic features that obviously no one at gearbox austrailia had a mind to correct……. If gearbox was smart they would capitalize on their modular weapon system behind the scenes and let the average user customize their own weapons. Its extremely addictive and adds a whole other dimension to the game. Instead, the morons chose to be authoritarian dickheads and block the functionality. Shame on gearbox. I cant stand idiots. So they have good artists(well really they decided to copy a short film of someone elses art buy hey bill gates does it so why not game devs) but they are rarely the ones making the decisions; neither do the animators or the coders. Also unlimited backpack and bank needs to load faster and whatever enhancements were added to BL PS version of unreal engine need to be continuously retroactively added to BL2. :)))))) I NEED SAVE EDITOR!!! BUT I GUESS ILL JUST HAVE TO CHERRY PICK THEM OUT OF OLD SAVE COPIES; NEED NEW WEAPONS WHEN GOING TO LASER!!!! MAN I NEED WEAPON LEVEL UP FOR MY ELECTRIC ANARCHIST AND UNLIMITED AMMO!!!! Would also be nice if I could copy my god guns out of BL2(or best farmed like Etech Night Railer 5x shot purple laser sniper from the leprechaun) to this game as well….. Wondering what possibilities and limitations may be……. the possibilities are endless…… All in all PS is a good game but considering the pricing of BL2 its overpriced even Randy Ptchford alluded to this but said it was out of his hands probably doesnt like 2k capitalizing on Value(price to map ratio) of Borderlands name…… still worth it tho because I am crack addict. Game shorter, maps just as good or better, techno instead of western theme, austrailian voices(aka the men in the moon aka moondogs), austrailian cunt coders putting all the wrong weapons in bads hands to make them ace you when u come around corner. Harder, smaller(map wise but not too small), more pastel and colorful, buildings slightly more simple but maps improve, gets much harder in the last maps(curve steeper than first game seems to happen near the end).

  25. ApfelBoss says:

    After trying to load my Save Date in your Save Editor (This version right here ^) I’ll get this error: “Failed to load save: invalid SHA1 hash”

  26. DoDolabs says:

    Thank You! 🙂

  27. Guns Of Anarchy says:

    Thanks for all your hard work. I’ve used the borderlands 2 editor a lot and I love it but now neither of the editors will open on my computer on Windows 7 any ideas on what could cause that. All my other save editors are working.

  28. Arizona-Heat says:

    Thanks Rick, good job.

  34. ricky says:

  35. evan says:

    does it matter that i have borderlands 2 game of the year edition. anybody now

  36. Savir says:

    No it does not matter

  37. Karg se says:

    It’s not working for me, i use to used BD SE to change my level but it didn’t work now. I’m stuck level 34, so lame. Does BD 2 get a update who prevent SE use?

  38. Karg se says:

  39. Karg se says:

    Not fixed, seems not working on Windows 10 TP

  40. petri says:

    Is there any mod so gaige can use more deathtraps instead of one?

  41. omdul01 says:

    says failed to load sha1 hash

  42. BLdudester says:

    First I would like to say thanks for this program.

    I have used it with my old version of BL2 and worked great.

    I now have the game of the year edition vs 1.8.2 and the main thing i use this editor for does not work anymore. BACKPACK space, I cannot change the blackmarket under Raw anymore it keeps resetting back to 39 backpack spaces when i reload. before i loaded my savegame i had over 500 backpack spaces on my dude so seems that game screwed us over.

    Anyone figuer out a way to make backpack space stick?

  43. sam says:

    Sooooo this was brilliant until it broke my game my game no longer loads on steam
    If you have any way to fix this i would appreciate it greatly

  44. 5x11 says:

    Some of the class mods and guns seem to no longer work for me?

    It lets me select the class mod/ gun but I end up having a red box around the balance section and just ends up deleting the item? Not sure if this is because the reencode is wrong?!

  45. BLdudester says:

    I use this on PC only btw. All the real gun and item codes work for me just I used to be able to go to the blackmarket upgrades and put 0 on last 2 entries and crazy earl had backpack upgrades all over again. but now it keep reverting back everytime i log out and back in. And also I used to be able to just put some points in general skills to be able to use them ingame, now it does not work.

  46. Marcus says:

    hi there. i am pc(win10) user.
    i want to say you grand thanks for tool

    now I haven’t non-damaged saved files after edition. well, something with saving mechanism. example

    1. I open save001.sav
    2. I save it using name Save0002.sav
    3. I try to open Save0002.sav and received error message failed to load save: lzo decompression failure (input overrun)

    what can we do if it possible?

    • Marcus says:

      game can use original save001.sav, no problem. if i edit it directly, game cannot use it after saving.

      • 5x11 says:

        Rather than changing the save00002.sav file you need to keep it as 0001.sav- It should come up with “This save already exists, do you want to override it” You should then click yes.

        • Marcus says:

          thank you

          Yes, this is obvious, resave with own name. and backup is prior. save_file may be damaged, backup and resave – it is the best way, i did so)

          but I’ve wrote that the editor can not open any file saved by it, and also the game can not open it. To mark problem with LZO error.

          Did anybody had same problem?

  48. Gruselbauer says:

    Hey there!

    Just a quick question… Editor says “Failed to load save: Invalid or unsupported version!” when I try to load a save I extracted from Horizon. I´ve got the Xbox 360 version of BL2, no DLC at all installed but updated to most recent version.

    Is there something I can do about this?


    • Satvir says:

      Make sure you select “xbox” from drop down menu when you are selecting your savegame.

      • Gruselbauer says:

        Oh my god, yes… what a stupid thing to overlook 🙁

        But, if I may make a suggestion: Why not add “Maybe you selected the wrong platform when chosing your savegame” to the error message, if there should be any further updates? You know, to keep other folks with my limited attention to detail from making the same mistake… Just if there´s another version of the editor planned and such.

        Damn fine editor, dear Rick 🙂

  49. jordan says:

    Can anyone help me? I mod and save my profile and when i try to add it to the game, it will show me the edited profiles in my storage, but the game doesn’t register the save and will not show the profiles. Any and all help appreciated.

  50. fromDdark says:

    will there be an update for the Doppelganger(Handsome Jack) Mods?
