    i need help……….how to make pocker night heads and skins? i tried to but it did not work

    • Anonymous says:

      you can’t actually add them to your inventory because they are DLC items, so the best you can do is apply them to your character.

  2. gmoney says:

    so I went and downloaded it and it wont open correctly

  3. billbo says:

    I installed it now it wont open what do I do

  4. Player 1 says:

    Sooo….Not sure what im doing wrong but i cant get this to work i open the file wit Horizon and extract the file and try and open itin the mod tool and i get an error saying invalid or unsupported version and when i even try just opening the file in Horizon i get an error message that reads: Invalid signature type detected for the loaded package. halting reading. please make sure the file is a valid xbox360 XContent package (“LIVE”, ‘PIRS’,’CON’) can anyone help me?

    • Dustin says:

      I manually extract the character you want to mod by dragging it from the USB into the space into the left using Horizon. Then I extract the game save, open it via Gibbed’s Save Editor, I can then mod my stats/weapons/currencies, and save. But, when I go to inject it back into Horizon I get the “Invalid signature type detected for the loaded package. halting reading. please make sure the file is a valid xbox360 XContent package (“LIVE”, ‘PIRS’,’CON’)” same as you. Not sure why everything works up until then and cannot find a solution on this website. Any help would be much appreciated.

    • TheHelpfulGuy says:

      If it is telling you “unsupported version” to fix this, go to open save on Gibbed Editor, find you’re save, click on it but dont hit open just yet. on the bottom it will probally say “PCSAV” or whatever, click on that and change it to the preferred game save

  5. lilvipr05 says:

    When I try and run the gibbed.borderlands2.savededit.exe It will not open. Keeps coming up with gibbed.borderlands2.savededit has stopped working. I am running Vista 64 bit os. Am I missing something?

  6. JBow says:

    I can’t get the skill points to work. Please help!

    • Gagoze says:

      Go into the raw tab and manually change the skill level, but remember that skills only have 1 level dont know if it will cause your game to crash if you assign more, hope this helps

  7. beast1217 says:

    So yeah, I think somehow this version is now obsolete and an updated version needs to be released!

  8. Fluffy says:

    Hi, just reporting a little issue with changing class.
    When after changing class, save slot, skin and head switching between the original save and any duplicates that have been modified (to a different class), the player model on the main menu will not update, guessing there is another something somewhere that needs to be changed in order to fix this. Was it not realised/added or have I just overlooked something?

    Many thanks.

    This workd with steam ?

    downloaded save editor and cant open it, what program is needed

  11. Darth Sailor says:

    Hmm… Trying to change the size of my backpack, but so far I don’t seem to be able to find it. Anybody?

    • Kushblunts says:

      just upgrade your backpack by either giving yourself eridium and upgrading at the black market.. or u can go into the save file itself and upgrade the blackmarket slot for the bag size.. either way works just as well

  12. Someone says:

    E Tech Relic don’t work. If I try to gib them, they disappear
    Also, I can’t find Seraph Relics and Seraph Shields

    • Henry says:

      E-rech relics (I assume you mean the ancient ones) require very specific setup or they’ll vanish. You can’t just edit any stat. Try these setups, they should work:

      Type A – Effect 1 – Effect 4 – Effect 7
      Type B – Effect 2 – Effect 5 – Effect 8
      Type C – Effect 3 – Effect 6 – Effect 9

      You can simply create 3 copies with these stats and see in game which one you like best.

  13. matt says:

    Hey, I use the editor successfully but when I change the level above level 61 (mostly 500-1000) I can join the game and it says I’m level (xxxx) but for my friends it says I am level 61 and I can’t use weapons that require levels above it, help please?

  21. Muffin says:

    • Kushblunts says:

  22. ChaunedTank says:

  23. koehler says:

  24. TIMMY TIM says:

    this editor sucks it doesn’t even open, when you click it it just sits there for a few seconds and says fuck you and doesn’t do anything. this is shit and fake. this is fake shit.

    • Kushblunts says:

      did you extract the files after downloading.. because this runs perfect for me.. so dont accuse something of being fake just because u arent smart enough to make it work

  25. Mendooza says:

    Hi! I tried adding BL2(BwAAAAAezwBgBMAgABAAwA==) Kawaii Killer to my backpack and bank but the item name displays as “unknown” even though it’s under customization. Tried adding it manually but then the category becomes unknown aswell! After saving and hopping in the game there’s nothing there. A’m I doing something wrong?

    • Mendooza says:

      Also, it seems that the save files are out of sync? For example my Zer0 has Nihilism head equipped, but the editor shows the default zero head. My weapons and items are also mixed up like what I have equipped and what not.

    • WolfRaider says:

      Yeah I’m having a similar issue where my saves aren’t being added back into horizon correctly. I’ve tried for an hour now and nothing also can’t add weapon codes even though I’m copied them to the clipboard. Thinking about going back to an earlier version of Gibbed 🙁

  28. Youngcomet353 says:

    In borderlands2 on my xbox360 I spent a few of my skill points in the wrong place so is there a way to take them back or to erase them

    • Kushblunts says:

      uhh if your using this program u can just give yourself more skill points… if your not using this program then u are posting this in the wrong area

    • Henry says:

      Go to a quickchange station in game and reset skill points. You don’t need the editor for this.

  29. CodeKiller says:

    One : stop trying to cheat with console game…
    Two : this version works fine.
    Three : buy a brain as soon as you can. 😀

  30. Henry says:

    Whenever I open a save game with number 10 or higher, the editor adds 6 to the number. So Save000010 is slot 16 etc. It’s not a big issue, but a little bit confusing.

    • Kushblunts says:

      hmm i dont have more than 10 characters so i wouldnt know.. but u can always change the number back to 10 before u save your game

    • DocBlood says:

      The .sav files are numbered in hexadecimal (Base 16). The editor displays the decimal (Base 10) number of the save. So if you have a Save0013.sav the editor shows 19 in the Save slot field.

  31. Edwin says:

    Perfect. Insta Lv 61 Psycho 😉

  32. Bob says:

    Love this editor but I have one question, is there a way to add backpack slots? I used Willow Tree for BL1 and I was able to figure it out, your Editor is far more advanced and I seek help.

  33. Me says:

    When I attempt to open the file it says CON error.. No fix? Many other people are having same issue… Search it on YoutUbe…

  34. Jay says:

    @Bob: Under the “Raw” tab, “Black Market currencies” or something like that, you’ll see a series of numbers. The last two are your purchased backpack and bank SDUs, respectively. If you reset them to 0 you can then purchase more from Crazy Eddie. However, I personally can’t get it to save the new slots. In other words, I can reset it via Gibbed, go in, purchase more SDUs, and the game will say I have 51 slots, for instance. But when I exit the game it resets back to the max of 33. You won’t lose any items you had over 33, but you won’t be able to pick anything up until you get back under the limit.

    If there’s a fix for this or if I’m missing some other value that needs filling in I’d love to know. I’m using the latest version, and it seems to get updated frequently enough, so maybe a workaround will be available soon.

    • Bob says:

      Well shucks. Here’s hopping someone is more clever then my self can crack that little issue.

  42. InfiniteDoomsday says:

    Whenever I try to hack any of my save files with saveedit_r155, It ends up being corrupted the moment I try to load it in-game, I did it in between decryption and re-encryption of the save file. Did I do something wrong? Or is the game somehow countering hacked saves now?

  43. Prograx says:

    ok, got new chars to instant lvl 61 so far.
    thats actually all i wanted, i just saw, that they have only 2 weapon slots unlocked.
    Where can i unlock the others?

    Whatever I edit does not seem to change the actual save file. when i load the game, changes I have made are not saved/do not appear.

  46. Charlie says:

    Also getting the same error message as alot of people, only with 2 of my characters. All the others are opened fine.

  47. Inferno317 says:

    Im using Gib for the first time…cannot seem to get certain fields to save when creating items. The prefix and title fields wipe clean when I move on to the next item and when I try to create heads, it erases the “type” when I go to the next one. Why won’t these fields save? Am I doing something incorrectly?

    • Inferno317 says:

      EDIT: The prefix and title fields for WEAPONS won’t save. The type for ITEMS won’t save.

  48. Prograx says:

    since noone seems to know how to unlock the weaponslots does anyone maybe have lvl 61 saves for all classes?
    i only find modded ones with complete skilltree and whatever… just want regular lvl 61 chars in last playthrou
