    Hi Rick

    In the comments I had written: “I’ve found a bug My character is level 16. When I click on.” Sync all “, all weapons and items are set to level 36.”

    The problem is the version r31 still. I work with Widows 8.1 x64.

    • Rick says:

      Set your overpower level to 0. It’s probably set to 20.

      • Hexinator says:

        Thanks for the quick reply. Overpower level actually got up 20. I got new account and not the set. Another Char was OP 20, which must have been taken over automatically.

  2. blb548 says:

    im having trouble getting the skill points to stick when I set them I have tried setting the skilldata in the raw data screen and the charter screen and its seems to just stay at the current level that im at of 10

    • blb548 says:

      character screen I mean

      • blb548 says:

        is there another way to get the skill points to take effect , any help with this would be awesome and thanks for your hard work on this trainer

        • Daniel says:

          what you do to keep your skill points is you go to RAW on the top tabs and then you click skill data and then you set all the grades to 5 and then when you load up your character you have all the skills

    • AmmokK says:

      Set your level to 1 and then add lots of experience points.

  3. Ace4975 says:

    I decrypted the save and then when trying to open it into the editor it gave me an invalid SHA1 hash error and I am playing it through PS3 and i switched the thing from PC to PS3 and I do not not what else to do. Help:(

    • KrisNisha says:

      Same here 🙁

      Anyone knows help?

    • Rawr says:

      I use Horizon for save extracting, and it gave me a problem with it. I originally extracted the whole save, but it won’t load up the whole save. The program only wants the SaveGame.sav file, which can be located under the contents tab of the save file when opened in an extraction tool.

  4. sactage says:

    I’m getting “The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect” when trying to use the editor – happens on Win7, Win8, and Win10 Technical Preview

    • rmlpwn says:

      Wait…what happened to Windows 9? God damn Microsoft and their inability to number things correctly. Anyway, Rick will probably figure it out, he’s Borderlands God lol.

  5. Disrupted says:

    having problems opening the save editor i believe i need other files on my computer have any clue on what those may be? im on windows7 starter

  6. Bryan says:

    Thanks for the hard work, works fine for me

  7. Stacy says:

    Thanks for the update.
    On a side note, I seem to be having trouble with the Baroness class mod creation. I cannot seem to have any vars pop up for it when I pull it up. Any help would be great.

    Again, thanks for the update!

  8. Chance says:

    Can you fix it where you can make holodome weapons

  9. Chance says:


  10. Chance says:

    It shows red on the weapon and it wont let me create the rest what do i do

    • HE4DSHOTJenkins says:

      Slightly to the right of “New Weapon” tab is a dropdown box. click that and select holodrome

  11. Holy Tuna says:

    thanks, you are the best.

  12. Alex says:

    Rick! I just wanna say you’re the best man! Lots of love from me! Keep it up!

  13. justin says:

    It wont transfer saves through horizon help!

  14. MuffinProof says:

    When I open a save file and try to switch characters it won’t sync to the other characters. Only shows the level, xp and items of the topmost character, Athena who is maxed out for me. It won’t retrieve info for others, and the sync buttons don’t do anything.

    • MuffinProof says:

      It only allows the editing of the last used character. Any changes made apply to that, not the selected one in editor

  15. g says:

    i cant seem to level up in game i would appreciate it if you could help me with this issue thanks

  16. Renegade says:

    I used this to change character class. Worked great except the skins and heads show as 28/28 and 4/4 respectively. I’m fairly sure the character should have more heads and skins to collect,how do I fix?

    Also, if / when this is fixable, is there a way to retroactively claim the mission heads / skins that I would have already unlocked at this point in the game?

  17. Alvin says:

    Hi I used your program to make a few things for my characters. The items I made work great but now I have no bad ass ranks. Is there way to fix this?

  18. janienl says:


    First of all, thanks for this tool. But I have a problem : I have the latest version downloaded from this website but Jack and Aurelia aren’t available in the class list and I have an error message saying that items from their inventories will be deleted.

    Sorry for my english, I’m french.

  19. H0ll0wW1th1n says:

    My game is fully up to date, however when i try to load in my Athena it tells me “failed to lad save: reencode mismatch” what can i do to fix this? i’ve cleared my cache and redownloaded the update, I have all of the compatibility packs as well.

  20. NEIL says:

    Hi Guys thanks for the borderlands 2 mod works great, but I cant open a save for the pre-sequel keeps saying failed to load save: invalid sha1 hash any ideas how i can fix it???

  21. Akoi Meexx says:

    Any way to get this running in Wine? I got .net 4 installed but run into the following errors when I run the executable (The dialog box that the exe produces being un-copy-able with ctrl-c, and expanding past my screen resolution):

  22. NeuTral NoiSe says:

    Hi, having also problems with the editor. I’m always getting an SHA1 error for ps3 saves. BF Version is 4.7.4 on Win7 64bit with .net 4 installed. Would be sweet if that error would be solved. If you needs an savefile i can upload it. Thanks

    • bark woof says:

      You need to update your .net and will then have no problems. I assume you picked PS3 when you try to open the decrypted files.

      • NeuTral NoiSe says:

        Thanks for your reply. Yes i have selected “ps3 save” in The editor 😉
        I update my .net and hope the best. Thanks again!

        • NeuTral NoiSe says:

          Updated my .net to the latest version meanwhile. Still getting the Sha-1 error^^
          Other save editors are working fine so it must have something to do with the BLTPS one.

  23. willyxxx says:

    Very nice work Rich, it needs to be said that we all appreciate your efforts very much, I am sending $20 bucks as soon as I figure out how. I hope everyone else does the same.

    • Rick says:

      You could support me through my Patreon at, if you want to make a one-time donation through other means, contact me at my e-mail.

    • Bryan says:

      He does deserve support. It looks like only 2 patrons for a total of 9 dollars. Geez people. I can confirm this software works perfect and I personally know others that use it. Thanks man for the great work.

      • Rick says:

        I only recently started promoting it, I’m not expecting anything. People have repeatedly told me they’ve wanted to contribute which is why I started it.

  24. bambadino says:

    I cant load it, it doesn’t work, any tips?

    • Encroaching Taint says:

      It also will not load for me. I open it and nothing happens. When I look at my task manager it briefly shows up and using about 7MB of memory and then it dissappears. The 23b Revision still launches without any issues.

  25. KaitoSensei says:

    Hey, I have a general problem. When I open the programm my mouse freezes. I can’t move it anymore. I tried to plug it out and in again but still no move. Also start the programm as an administrator doesn’t help. The only chance to get the control back is to restart my hole computer.
    I can load a save with my keyboard but can’t change anything.

    Can someone help me using this without freezing my mouse?

  26. Homosnacktual says:

    Hey Rick!
    Every time I try to load up the editor, I get an error, saying
    An exception was thrown
    System.ComponentModel.Composition.CompositionException: The composition produced a single composition error, with 2 root causes. The root causes are provided below. Review the CompositionException.Errors property for more detailed information.

    1) Could not load file or assembly ‘Gibbed.BorderlandsOz.ProtoBufFormats, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    2) Could not load file or assembly ‘Gibbed.BorderlandsOz.ProtoBufFormats, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.”

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

  27. Bryan B says:

    Hey Rick the save is awesome no doubt a about it. My issue is it was working perfect yesterday no problem. today it says (sha1 Hash) what does this mean. It says it for both when I try to use either TPS and BL2 editor. Please any help would be useful thank you

  28. GREY says:

    Problem with saving on Windows 10 solved, much appreciated!

  29. Zack says:

    Okay, so whenever I double click the .exe to start it, all is the little loading icon, and then nothing. I have all the things required, checked and double checked, but to no avail. Please help me.

  30. Mark says:

    Awesome thingie! Had to mess with it a while to get the right arrangement, but I was able to rescue my progress-blocked screwed up save without losing everything. Thanks!

  31. Bob says:

    WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.

    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].


  32. Pim says:

    How do you set tvhm because whenever I attempt to do it it crashes the game ?

  33. Cole says:

    Hello Rick, im having problems with my customizations, first play through was legit with Wilhelm then i did i modded play through (only changed guns and moonstone count) and my bad ass rank and skins including defaults are pretty much gone, any way to fix?

    • Rick says:

      Badass rank and skins are stored as part of your profile data, not save data. My save editor cannot help you with that, sorry.

  34. Bryan B says:

    Hello Rick I am having a problem when I go to open a save on either BL2 or TPS editor it says cannot load do to Sha1 what does this mean it was working fine a week ago haven’t bin able to use it since. What do I have to do to fix it.

  35. Logan K says:

    I can’t seem to get this to open. I download, and extract the files to my desktop, but when I try to run the program, literally nothing happens. Is there something I am missing?
