    I haven’t played in a while and hopped on to help some friends thru some missions. All my OP 55 gear has gone back down to 80, did they patch it? or did I overlook something with the new ver?

  2. steve says:

    thank u sir

  3. Nyx2k says:

    Hey, I found a small bug. The Aquamarine balance for the Maliwan sniper rifles is located under the Maliwan SMG type. Right next to the SMG Aquamarine balance. Same goes with the aquamarine material, which is only selectable in the smg category.

    • DOMIN8 says:

      I believe that issue is Hotfixed at the moment. I don’t think it’s an issue with the Editor because until it gets permanently fixed it will stay that way based on game code.

      • Nyx2k says:

        Well until then I gotta stick with the standard maliwan material when making a Sniper. I played around a bit and regardless of what I do, they always get deleted. Thx for the heads up anyway.

  9. ProbablyRaging says:

    Hi, been using this for a while now and just encountered my first problem.

    When making a brand new character (mechro). I created the character then edited it in gibbed straight away, I made my char level 50 but all of the enemies are level 1 or 22

    How should I go about fixing tthis

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Enemy levels only scale with you in UVHM. Otherwise they are a preset level through the other playthroughs.

      • ProbablyRaging says:

        But the other chars that I edited to level 50, the enemies went to lvl 50 as well

      • ProbablyRaging says:

        Like, if I edit my brand new unplayed chars level to 30 via gibbed, then load that char on BL2 all the enemies are lvl 30.

        If I edit my chars lvl to 50, all the enemies are lvl 50. But for some reason it’s not doing it anymore.

  10. ProbablyRaging says:

    So is there any way to edit my char to be in UVHM then? I just don’t see the point in being lvl50 with lvl10 enemies.

  11. 123wal says:

    when i edit or create a file for pc i put it back in the save folder as Save00036 or sameothing random and when i go onto borderlands 2 its not there can anyone help?

  12. QUICKSORT says:

    Will you guys support ps vita savegames too when it releases?

  13. skreame says:

    So I’m having some issues and I’m not sure whether it’s just on my end or not. I got my character save into gibbed no problem with horizon. I then went to make a weapon for my Mechromancer which is not working out. When I select new weapon, I go through all the drop down menus to choose my parts where when I picked the Maliwan Storm balance, it highlights red and doesn’t give me any choices for that even though I have the dlc. OK fine, so I decided on trying a standard Volcano. This one works for a certain amount of choices which ultimately I can never choose a prefix or title. It just shows the gun listed as “Sniper Rifle”. Even on the guns that came from the game, it never shows a list of choices in the drop downs for prefix or titles. When clicking on the arrow for those two categories to drop down and list choices it’s a large empty white box.

    • DOMIN8 says:

      When creating a weapon or item from scratch you have to click the down arrow next to the button and make sure you are creating it in the right DLC set first. The other issue with the Prefix and Title isn’t necessary because the game automatically names the item once it’s loaded up in game. If you know the exact string names then you can copy and paste them into those boxes.

  14. Mat says:

    Hey, sorry to bother you guys, just have a quick question. When I try to put it for all the areas to be discovered in the raw where it says FullyExploredAreas it does not work, as when I go back to my game there are black areas everywhere that are uncovered. Is there something I’m doing wrong? I’ve copied and pasted the text that DOMIN8 posted in the (collection) tab for all areas to be discovered.

  15. Bryan says:

    im having trouble with the weapons not having their textures when loading the game and also with just copying and pasting codes because it says i dont having any in my clipboard and i do copy the whole code with the ‘()”. if you could show me a link to the list of codes or direct me to a video i would greatly appreciate it. But just a simply reply will also work

  16. derek says:

    hello… i’m trying to use the save editor but all i have for an os right now is ubuntu(linux based) i looked up the source code but can’t figure out how to install it on ubuntu… if anyone could help i would greatly appriciate it

  17. TJ says:

    I have 72 gunzerker and all the sudden i started up my game and had zero guns. all my guns in the safe i couldnt use. any reason why?

  19. Kudos says:

    absolutely immaculate!! thank you so much!! I can’t even imagine how much time and effort you must have put into this!!

  20. NaturalSelection says:

    I can’t get it to spawn me in the Natural Selection Annex, or at its door, in the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve in UVHM.
    I set “Last Visited Teleporter” to “CreatureSlaughtertoPandoraPark”, and I also tried “PandoraParktoCreatureSlaughter”,
    but it always takes me to the fast travel station of Wildlife Exploitation Preserve.

    It works ok in TVHM, but not in UVHM. Is there a way around this?

    From the fast travel in WEP, I walk the distance and get to the door for the Annex, and go in, but when I save&quit and go back in, it spawns me at the beginning of WEP.

  21. NaturalSelection says:

    I am trying to farm the WEP Loot Midgets for Jimmy Jenkins.
    Since I can’t spawn at either side of the Annex door in UVHM, I thought I would do it in TVHM.

    I tried setting “Doctor’s Orders” as active, so I could get the loot midgets to spawn.
    But there is no option to set the mission as accepted, with none of the objectives complete.

    The “NotStarted” option makes the mission undiscovered, but I cannot accept it from Tannis. I click enter, the sound is heard, but the mission does not become accepted.
    The other options (Active/RequiredObjectivesComplete/ReadyToTurnIn) set the mission as completed and ready to be turned in.

    Am I missing something? Is there an option to set missions to accepted, but with no objectives completed?

  22. NaturalSelection says:

    Found it: You have to press the x to remove the mission from the log entirely. Then you can accept it without problems.

  23. The Prototype says:

    Says “Failed to load save: Invalid or unsupported version”

  24. Killer says:

    Hello, I’m having a a lot of difficulty with this. I have made multiple attempts at simply putting one dva infinity pistol into my inventory to no avail. I hvae goty, would that be the problem?

  25. 101101010 says:

    sometimes when i double click the icon it won’t pop’s like a 15% chance for it to show up :/

  26. Awaken says:

    Just downloaded the revision 227(haven’t used the Editor since rev. 169), and I can’t get my saves to load. I extracted using Horizon, but when I try to open them up in the Editor, I get the error message: “Failed to load save: cannot load XBOX 360 CON files, extract save using Modio or equivalent”. Should I download Modio and use that from now on?

    • Awaken says:

      Disregard last post. Read further back through previous responses and found a fix. However, thanks to all involved in this editor. Makes the game so much more enjoyable.

  27. Elijah says:

    why wont it let me create pearls?

  28. Andrew D says:

    I cant get the editor to open. I have tried running as administrator. I am running windows 8.

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Repair and/or reinstall your .NET Framework 4.

      • Moloch says:

        I have to say on Windows 8, the .NetRepair utility does nothing, and the attempt to install/reinstall any version brings up the message that it is built into the OS and cannot be modified in that way. I used a number of DISM commands and Microsoft thinks my .NET 3, 3.5 sp1, 4, and 4.5 are all in perfect working order. Has anyone else solved the Windows 8 issue where it does not open and no process appears to even start? Relevant errors are

          You can disregard this. It turns out it was Anti-Virus software quaranting the caliburn.micro.contrib.dll file. Apparently Norton considers it unsafe. A quick file specific exclusion rule and it runs perfectly.

    To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.

    Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.

    To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].


    I’ve checked the .NET Framework and tried both methods of extracion is there something else I’m missing?
    Thanks in advance

  30. Collin says:

    Okay, so I’ve followed all the steps, I do everything right as far as all the tutorials say, and then when I load it up in my PS3 nothing has changed. Instead of upping the level, it stays the same. No matter what I change, the game won’t show the changes. Does anyone know what could be happening? And yes, I am copying the gibbed data over the saved data in the PS3.

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Are you actually loading all the way into the game with that character? The description will not change until you do.

      • Collin says:

        Yeah, and it loads the exact same file as it started out as, even though I edited the original and saved over it.

        • DOMIN8 says:

          So you saved over the original in your decrypted save folder then Updated PFD and then Verified PFD and copied the folder back to your USB and then to your PS3? Those are the correct steps. If you have more issues you could send me the save your working on and I could check it out.

          • Collin says:

            Okay, I figured out that my flashdrive was causing the problem, because as soon as I switched to another one it worked perfectly. Thanks for the help, though.

  31. indomitablemex says:

    I downloaded the gibbed save editor but when I try and open my save file it doesnt show up if my file is a blank page and it says “failed to load save: invalid or unsupported version” if my file is an internet explorer file. Is there something I didnt download or something I did wrong? I am running as adminsitrator too … just an FYI. Please help.

  32. ZoMBiE says:

    Not sure what is going on i made a new char. and i cant seem to load it into the save editor. it works fine with older characters ive made. after extracting the file to my desktop and attempting to load it into the save editor i get this error message- “Failed to load save: reencode mismatch”. this is the case with a new character i make. Note- its been awhile since i last played borderlands so my older saves are quite old. ive updated to the newest version of horizon and save editor. any idea what the issue is?

  33. 3pic says:

    i downloaded this and when i got open the SaveGame.sav it says Failed to load save either failed or unsupported version i tried multiple times

  34. Lord Braska FFX says:

    Is their going to be a new update for last DLC? maby r230?

  35. Dylan Cilcius says:

    Hello ive seen videos and post and people with backpack storage space limit of like 600 or more and they say to go to raw and change 9 to 0 then i buy more upgrades and my space limit raises like the vidoes say. when i leave the game and go back on im back to a limit of 39. how do i fix this? it gets tedious swapping weapons out especially since i cant buy saphar weapons by switching.

  36. vitus says:

    I played a lot of B2 last summer on the PC and used Gibbed with no issue. Now I’ve got a new computer (Windows 8.1 Home Premium) and have been lured back to playing B2. However, when I go to open a save game file using version 227 of the editor I get the following message. Anybody have any ideas what’s going on?

  37. jwcbear says:

    another noob question: I can’t figure out how to access the psycho items, nor can I figure why my clipboard isn’t functioning at the moment. I understand the psycho stuff is a drop down list, but there are no Legendary class mods available. Specifically, the class mods. Thanks

    • DOMIN8 says:

      First make sure you click the down arrow next to New Item and choose the Psycho Pack. Then start creating your item. The Psycho items start with GD_Lilac. If you are having trouble pasting codes, make sure you are copying the entire code, including the BL2 part.

  38. bigglesworth says:

    Hello, THis is my first time of using save editor and I have the steam version of Borderlands 2. I was wondering why every time I try to open the Gibbed save editor file It says that “Borderlands 2 Save editor has stopped working. Please help me THank you!!

  39. unkdun says:

    does anyone know why when i gib the save file and save it, it doesn’t change in bruteforce but when i open it in gib all the changes are still there?

    • DOMIN8 says:

      The description in Bruteforce will not update until it’s loaded up on PS3. After you Verify PFD in Bruteforce you can click on your save and you should see the file size update.

  40. mrfurion says:

    Hi – I downloaded this for the first time the other day and it seems to work fine, but I’m wondering if there is any manual/documentation because certain aspects aren’t totally clear to me. Couldn’t find a link on this site and there doesn’t seem to be any documentation in the program itself.

  41. skreame says:

    I see listings to make poker night 2 heads and skin customizations, but is it possible? I’ve tried every dlc option and base game, but no go.

      • skreame says:

        I started a pyscho and at lv9 decided to edit it today, and the save became corrupted even when reverted back to it’s original form. When I tried to make a new psycho, which I edited at lv6, also corrupted. I had a copy of it on my cloud storage and so leveled it up to 11 before trying to edit it again. All I did to it this time was change the eridium and credits. Still corrupted. Even when I replace the game.sav with the extracted version that is pre-modded and should be how it was from the start, still corrupted. Is there an issue with Horizon? This has only happened to me with pyschos; my soldier and mechro have had no issues, and yes I delete the backups.

  42. bob says:

    does anyone now how to modify their bad-ass ranks?

  43. bullymongslaya says:

    what do i need to download to open gibbed?

  44. 3pic says:

    error unsuported version or save…..i extracted a new save and it still says it its it something to do with the revision version is 227 the latest or is there a newer one

  45. Mojo says:

    This might be a longshot but now I’m desperate. I got screwewd over by the B.A.R reset bug & lost my Lvl 72 assassin along with all of my favorite gear & customizations. Our computer went tits up on us a while ago now & I’ve been looking for anyone online generous enough to use this Save Editor to make me some new gear. Sorry, but like I said , I’m desperate now…

  46. skreame says:

    I can’t get any of my psycho saves to work. They always become corrupted. A couple of them have become corrupted when reverted to the original SaveGame.sav so I thought it was an issue with Horizon, but I have been able to revert the last couple of tries with my newest one if I restore it after the first try so I don’t think it’s that. Either way, if I edit my psycho, it corrupts. I played this last one all the way to level 21 on the mission Wildlife Preserve and unlocked the fourth weapon slot, thinking maybe I needed a larger filesize or something, since I remembered WillowTree needed to have a lv 10 character or something similiar and still, nothing matters. I edited my soldier again today just to make sure it works for other characters and it worked perfectly fine. Why can’t I get it to work for this one class?

  47. 3pic says:

    thnx i always forget to click that stupid drop down button and choose 360 so annoying

  48. 3pic says:

    in horizon it says (invalid signature type detected for the loaded package. Halting reading. please amke sure the file is a valid xbox 360 xContent package “LIVE”,”PIRS”,”CON”

  49. Entotrte says:

    Hi, first I want to thank your hard work, the editor works perfectly fine. Second, I have a question. Is there a place (like a pastebin or something) with the codes of items from DLC 4 and the ones added with the 2nd level cap increase DLC? In this page there are codes for every single variety of every item before that, but I cannot find any codes from DLC 4 and the 2nd level cap DLC.
    Could you link them to me? Preferibly, one with all the variations of every item, though that might be asking too much. Thank you very much. 🙂

  50. ScOFFeR says:

    i have modded xbox360 and play without internet connection. got GotY edition game and have only ingame patches from dvd. when i use newest editor it shows wrong version error when i try to load saves. can you tell me what do i do wrong? or maybe i should use older version of your program?

    • DOMIN8 says:

      What error are you getting? My guess is you are either trying to open the container file and not the character save or you are not selecting Xbox from the drop down menu before clicking Open.
