    Maybe I’m doing it wrong. But i can’t get mecromancer mods or the new pearlescent weapons to work. I’m get a red box around my first choice. and cant get the next selection to work. Otherwise this thing is F-ing awesome.

    • DividedByZero says:

      You need to click the arrow next to New Item and choose Mechromancer for the Class Mods, and the arrow next to New Weapon and choose Ultimate Vault Hunter for the weapons. I’m not entirely sure why the system is like that, maybe to lessen the load on the end user by now queuing everything at once.

  2. D0T says:

    F-ing RAD! Thanks for being awesome!

  3. Brian says:

    I already dLed this editor. I currently have every title update and DLC (as of 18Apr2013). I used the older version(s) of Gibbed, so I know how to use it. For some reason, this thing will NOT load a char. I even tried creating a new char IN THE EDITOR, saving it to my desktop, and reloading that exact same save. No dice. Feel free to tell me what I’m doing wrong. My email address is Thanks.

    • xDeadlyxLOTHx says:

      Are you sure you changed the file type to the designated operating system you are using to play BL2 when opening the .sav files?

      • anthony says:

        There is no way for me to change the platform. All i can do is try to open the save or create a new one.

    • DividedByZero says:

      Perhaps you have a broken or incomplete copy of .NET Framework 4. Then again, given you’ve used the older editions, I’d presume they worked fine and this one is failing. Try reinstalling .NET Framework 4 just in case, double-check that it’s saving in the correct formats for your platform.

      Only thing I could think besides that is maybe, not meaning to insult, that you have something like a modded weapon that Gibbed is having a hard time processing, or some weird bug in the original save. More likely it’s something to do with Gibbed itself.

  4. Stage says:

    Rick, since it was added in the update and not through DLC, I’m assuming it will be possible to use the PN2 (Poker Night 2) skins and heads on characters without the game.

    • DividedByZero says:

      I was initially going to say not likely, but I do see item codes for generating the skins in your backpack, unlike the Costume Pack DLC. So it’s entirely possible you could generate them ingame. Currently Gibbed doesn’t support them in the DLC Set Selection, so they’re not creatable yet.

      • butts says:

        What would prevent the editor from supporting their creation as opposed to any other item in the game? Is it an issue of the source save file not having the right information inside it or does the editor require another update?

        • butts says:

          well, I found the new editor. Problem is, however, I used an older version a couple months ago on a different, silver mule gamertag and gave it 100% badass bonuses stats and 200 some odd keys to fiddle with. But when I open my GPD, and my profile, with the new editor it autoloads all of the things I inputted into the old editor for the silver profile. wtf it shouldn’t be doing this, not a single file is the same as last time. I don’t want to change or mod anything other than the skins …

          • butts says:

            ugh, nevermind. somehow I was opening a very old backup of said silver profile without even realizing I even still had it.

  5. bzyku says:

    man u r number one in my country it worked for me just fine for the ps3 version 😀

  6. DORG says:

    Is there a way to skip TVHM so that I can play UVHM on my lvl 50 Mechro? (PC version)
    I’m about halfway done TVHM, didn’t do the main story, played most of the DLC with her instead, and now I have to go around killing boring lvl 40 enemies for several hours before I can get to UVHM with her.

  7. sspencerva says:

  9. Therox75 says:

    Hello all
    My question is i have a update in ps3 today 19.04.2013 so i can use the gibbed save editor without aby problems

  10. McCrunch says:

    I am playing on the Xbox 360. I updated BL2 today and downloaded the compatibility pack. When I try to use the editor it says invalid or unsupported version. Is this because I have the compatibility pack?

    • McCrunch says:

      So I was reading some other comments and tried reinstalling .net 4 and it still isn’t working.

  11. GrimCarbon says:

      • rAPIDZ says:

  18. Kuhlderohk says:

  19. logo829 says:

  20. Jeriatrics says:

    So is there a way to trick Borderlands on the PC into thinking Krieg is unlocked?

  21. FateXeroSaber says:

    hmm… upon attempting to load the save file, i get the following error: “Failed to load save: invalid or unsupported version” D;

  22. Funky_3000 says:

    Hello everybody 🙂

    I tested the new version and she is super , but I want to create a Psycho. But when i go in my PS3 , the game say ” i don’t have the DLC for use this save ” . Have you got an idea about this problem ?

    Thank you *_*

    • DORG says:

      I’m going to assume this will not work until the DLC is officially launched, and most likely purchased legitimately.

  23. MrPanda says:

    I’m reporting a bug if it is one.
    It’s not possible to create some kind of relic.
    For example, it’s not possible to create this kind :–oI0Ou0

    It’s only possible to create it with the first perk, like this :—-oI0Ou0

    Now I don’t know if it’s your software or the calculator but it doesn’t work.
    I thought it’s just possible to have one of a all perks but no, when another perk is chosen, it won’t work. The item just disappear in game, it truly disappear and not just doesn’t appear, when I reload the save, the item isn’t there anymore, so the game just delete it or don’t understand it and then delete it.

    I hope it will help in some ways and you are doing a great job with this save editor, keep going! 😉

    • Rick says:

      It’s not a problem with my editor.

      • MrPanda says:

        Hmmm, can you give me a save with one of these relics? Just to try on my game.

      • Nervocalm says:

        Hi Guys (or girls)! I “report” this exact same thing on the first page of build 153… The inconsistency is for any Allegiance Relic that you want to enable 3 effects… And this is what I have been told:

        Actually for the allegiance relics, u cannot put all 3 effects cuz it goes only from type a to type f. Type a: enable first effect; type b:enable second; type c: enable thrid effect; type d: enable first + second; type e: enable first + third; type f: enable second + thrid. So, unfortunatly, theres no type g for all 3 together ):

        I don’t know… It’s the first thing I encountered that the editor can’t replicate form the calculator.
        Rick, When you have some time, could you tell us if it is possible or if the calculator is wrong?

        Thank you.

    • rolaje says:

      It’s not just you, and it’s not just some attributes. Things I’ve noticed:
      1. Legit item in bank, copied it’s code, pasted in bag. = Won’t load in bag, but bank version is fine.
      2. Tried to change two stat values (still within legit ranges) on the relic in my bag. Reloading the .sav file in Gibbed and the relic in bag is gone. Bank version is fine.
      3. Seems the only way to get it to load on the character’s bag is to make it in the bank, then pick it up from the bank.

      Known issues?

      • rolaje says:

        EDIT: #1 is not an issue, but #2 is still very much an issue I’m too dense to figure out.
        The relic in question that I’m trying to modify from a legit on is: Dahl Allegiance, with Burst-Fire delay reduction and Mag size (legit version has Recoil and Mag size). I can remove the Recoil stat fine, but as soon as I turn on the Burst-Fire reduction, the item breaks.

        Any ideas anyone?

  24. KevinSK47 says:


    I am wondering if there is anyway the I can add gold keys using the editor. The value in the editor is doing nothing in game. Everything else still works. Currently on 1.5.0 with all dlc

  25. pinkhyori says:

    Is there any way to change the RegionGamtStages within UVHM? I’d like to make the game harder but changing the GameStage or PlaythroughIndex does not seem to have any effect.

    Thank you

  26. Gypsyfy says:

    Hi, when I try to make a Psycho on PS3 it lets me, but It says that I need the DLC unlocked. Somebody joined my game today with Krieg, so I know it can be done on PS3, the question is how?

  27. Dynamite says:

    You can play as krieg, i’ve done it, but it requires major glitching. When I did it, I made my krieg the main character, then I joined a friend that was in the main menu. Of course it said that it needed DLC and said I was a level 1 commando but when he started the match I popped up as a level 61 Krieg (I made him level 61 in editor).

    • Dynamite says:

      I forgot to mention, I was loading the Krieg character right before he started the match, it said “Load completed” and the match started.

      • Gypsyfy says:

        I tried it and it worked, but when I switched to a lower level Krieg it stopped working. Any way to make an existing krieg your main character again?

    • Jeriatrics says:

      Will this work on the PC?

      • MrPanda says:

        No, I tried but I guess that the way it load the character on a PC is different so it’s not possible to load it while your friend is starting the game. Maybe I just failed but I gave it many tries.

    For some reason, I get an error when trying to start the editor; it won’t start at all. I repaired my .net framework install, but still no luck. Any ideas?

  30. fredzter says:

    hi is it possible to convert a pc save file into a ps3 save file?

  31. Mike says:

    So I tried to mod a save n such by making new weapons and modding old ones with this newest version and nothing happens to my character. I am using horizon and I edit the save and save it to the old slot, rehash, redesign, and save to my flashrive that I have the character on and it doesnt work… what is going wrong? Is it the codes I am using to make new weapons or is it patched? Please help.

  32. liam says:

    it wont let me load a save with psycho items (which dropped from enemies, machines,slots etc) why is this?

  33. liam says:

    also how are you guys getting access to the psycho in the save editor?

  34. Myles says:

    I can’t open my save from my copy from my ps3. It says “Failed to load save: invalid SHA1 hash”. What does this mean and how can I fix it?
    So I can upload and change my awesome Axton!

    • Myles says:

      nvm I fixed it, but now.

      I want my original game (unmoded) with my moded game saves to work in game, so I can pick either one, but my “path” is the same regardless…

      Please help me.

      • MrPanda says:

        You can choose a save slot in the first tab of the save editor. Choose another slot than your main slot. It might fix your problem. I’m playing on a PC so I can’t certify it. If it doesn’t, change the name or just do something in order to make your modified save different!

  35. Kristian says:

    When I try to open the .exe, I get an error message saying I don’t have .NET frameworks installed. I know for a fact that I do, and it’s the latest version and everything. I attempted this on a few different computers, and everytime I get the same results. I have looked and can’t find anyone else with the same problem. Any help? Am I doing something stupid?

  36. John says:

    First time using this, what do “Manufacturer Grade” and “Game Stage” do? I’m assuming one is the level of the stats and one is the level at which you can use it?


  37. Joe says:

    Thanks for this. I used this and modio to convert all my xbox saves to pc so I didn’t have to start all over. This program is awesome, can’t wait to try out all the features!

  38. KAZU says:

    It doesn’t work for xbox. Error, the version of this files doesn’t supported.

  39. Charles says:

    Any chance you can change the behavior of the open and save dialogs? I find it annoying that it keeps defaulting to the PC version save folder when I am constantly using it on the PS3 version.

  40. Chris says:

    If I use this just to add a single item into my game, can microsoft tell and ban me?

  41. Guys on consoles,
    To change the opening file “Invalid” Error.
    Change the dropbox on the lower left hand side from PC saves, to X360, or PS3, respectively.

    • chris says:

      OMG you are the best persong i hae ever met thank you soooooooooo much i was having the problem for moths and have not noticed that i cant thank you enough

  42. rolaje says:

    Anyone had issues with Relics not loading/disappearing if you use certain combinations stats (only 2 stats, still within legit ranges).

    New to gibbing, apologies if this is common knowledge, but I’m pretty sure this combination of Allegiance stats is legit, I just can’t figure out why it’s messing up.

  43. Joe says:

    How can I use this for Xbox360? It doesn’t work.

  44. Calvin says:

    Every time i try to open my save file’s i get the error: ‘Failed to load save: cannot load XBOX 360 CON files, extract save using Modio or equivalent.’ Can somebody please help me 🙁
