  1. Dio says:

    hello im running it through 7 zip and it refuses to launch
    any fixes?

  2. Jam's says:

    Doesn’t launch with Win10 Creators update. Tried this version and 248. Even the first borderlands SE doesn’t work r33.
    .NET Framework 4 already installed and i can’t seem to find a way to reinstall it. Doesn’t matter really, as i recently reinstalled the entire OS.
    Tried compatibility mode, which seemed to work with other programs pricked by Win10 with/without Creators Update, but doesn’t work in this case :/
    Any help would be appreciated =)

  3. Zack says:

    Does this work for Mac?

  4. Gabe says:

    I’m running win10 OS and can seem to use it either Please help!

  5. rca626 says:

    Ditto here. Won’t open on Windows 10, either normally or as administrator.

    • rca626 says:

      You can see it start under Background Processes, but then it just closes again. Tried changing config file to my version of .NET framework (), but it still only opens briefly under Background Processes and then closes again.

      • rca626 says:

        Not sure why it would’t place the config change in the parentheses. Try again here:

        • rca626 says:

          Anyway, in the config file, in the supportedRuntime tag, I put

          version=”v4.0″ sku=”.NETFramework,Version=v4.6.1″

          • Sonny says:

            Reinstall .net framework. I suggest installing 3.5 then 4.0, make sure you remove them first then restart and install them again.

  6. diabli says:

    i cant save a file,when it open the window for saving it automatically crash

  7. isaiah says:

    hey i cant download framework4.0 when I open and run the setup it justs shows the logo and quits can you please help thanks

    • Sonny says:

      Try running as admin and check if your anti-virus isn’t blocking it, firewall also needs to be checked in case.

  8. John says:

    Has anybody come up with a solution to the crashing issue? The one that gives no error, just doesn’t run but only a few seconds in the task manager?

    Running current windows 10 OS

    • Sonny says:

      I’m running the game on W10 and the editor works for me flawlessly.

      Try running as admin.

      • John says:

        Hello, thank you for your sudden response. I downloaded a new copy, and ran it as admin, however it still is crashing, no window opens up, I do see it in the background processes for a moment before it disappears from there too.

        Here’s the files that are included in the download, maybe i’m missing a file or something:

        Assemblies folder
        The lauching file with Jack’s face
        The config file
        And the txt docs such as the readme and release notes.

        Maybe my Antivirus deleted a file, but this all appears to be normal.

  9. FyrestoneGhost says:

    So when i try / attempt to mod my ps3 save i go to bruteforce i decrypt my save then open up gibbed but it gives me the SHA1 error as if i havent decrypted anything (yes i am switching pc to ps3

    • DOMIN8 says:

      I would remove your BruteForce and reinstall it or update it if it’s an old version. Also maybe reinstalling the dependencies.

  11. Chubba says:

    i keep getting a reencode mismatch what do i do

  12. cattacattac says:

    I can’t seem to spawn the topneaa rocket launcher

  13. Skaggy says:

    HI i have a cracker BL 2 version 1.8.2. and trying to use revision 256. all the files work but as soon as i go in game it dissppears. Is it because of the version?

  14. Dex says:

    I found a strange bug you should be able to fix. For the Dragon KEep DLC content, the Gem sniper model is missing from the Sniper qualities for Maliwan, but it seems to be in the SMGs for Maliwan instead. Is there a chance this was an unintentional mistake? I’m sure it’s a very easy fix. xD

    • DOMIN8 says:

      It’s not a mistake with Gibbed but, rather the game itself. Gibbed pulls all the assets from the game files and that’s where that is stored there. It’s just something that GBX has never fixed.

  15. bob says:

    does this work on xbox 360 and if it does can someone help me

    • Dex says:

      Yes, it does. Do you have the newest version of Gibbed save editor? In addition to this, do you have a drive and Horizon? It’s a lot simpler than it looks, trust me. I’ve heard so far Windows 10 prevents it from working so if you’re Windows 7 you’ll be golden.

      Open Horizon up, go to “Tools”, then go to “Packagae Manager”. Hit “Open” and search for the file in your Flash Drive. You’ll need to make sure hidden folders can be seen, otherwise you’ll never find it. Ignore the one with a ton of zeroes and take the second folder, then keep taking the top until you reach a file named “Save#.sav”

      Once it’s open, extract it to wherever and then open it as an Xbox 360 save with this Save Editor. You SHOULDN’T have any problems doing this if you do everything right. If anything goofs, let me know. Also, ignore the Package.pk3 and the other random file, those are for your profile and your Xbox360 platform data.

    failed to load save: reencode mismatch

    • Dex says:

      Reincode mismatch? Update the version of Gibbed BL2 Save Editor. That should resolve it instantly. :>

  18. Jabroo says:

    is there a new version of the Gibbed BL2 Save Editor that works directly for ps4?

  19. Pr0_Fesional- says:

  23. CLPX89 says:

    i am having trouble as every time i try to access the decrypted saves from bl2 for ps3 in gibbed i get the sha1 hash error and it will not load in gibbed what should i do to correct issue?

    • DOMIN8 says:

      I would try removing and reinstalling BF and making sure that you have the most up to date version. Also, try reinstalling the dependencies as well.

  24. Tom says:

    I’ve been holding off on downloading Gibbed because of the errors with windows 10…is gibbed able to run with windows 10 now? I’ll be using it for BL2 on a PS3. Do I need any other programs to edit my save files?

  25. boop says:

    is it impossible to give yourself pearlescents with this? I wanted to give my level 44 character a tunguska but whenever i fill out the item field with it, it just comes up red. my character isnt in ultimate vault hunter mode, is this the issue?

    • boop says:

      ack…nevermind. I guess i just had to set the set value to the ultimate vault hunter pack DLC.

  26. doofie98 says:

    HELP!, the app doesn’t work in Win10, won’t open :'(
    any fix?

  27. pedro says:

    Hi Rick. Will such save eidtor affect my friends save after coop? Thx.

  28. AC says:

    I copied a file from my 360 to my laptop to edit a class mod which for some reason i couldnt make as it gets deleted, i edited the level of the mod and saved it then added the file to my game save, for some reason the same mod that came from the game dissapeared, it does come in very useful but it has issues with creating legit items and weapons, if this could be fixed i would rate this 5*

  29. ParagonGray says:

    Hi I have a problem it says “Failed to load save: invalid or unsupported version” can you help me out?

    • DOMIN8 says:

      What type of save are you trying to load? Did you choose the proper format from the drop-down menu before trying to open it?

      • Nate says:

        Im having this same problem and im using an xbox 360 save and extracting it from horizon. The same error described here shows for me when i try to open the save onto the save editor.

    • mike says:

      Hello, if you’re using it on console, you can see a drop down menu somewhere in the downloads screen. Click it then switch to your console.

  30. ES says:

    Im not sure why… im new with using this program. Ive downloaded the file but winrar notes it down that it is a corrupt file and wont extract it at all.
    Is this on my end?

  31. ca says:

    when i go on borderlands 2 the characters are there i lay on it and it dosent load it just keeps saying loading

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Sounds like you may have messed up something in your save. Do non-modded saves still load fine? If so, what did you change?

  32. Emma says:

    The save editor seems to class the SMG.Maliwan_B body as illegal. I’ve had multiple SMGs using this body come out of Moxxi’s slot machines. Is this body classed as illegal because it can’t drop from enemies, or is something else going on here?

  33. Mark says:

    Hi im having a problem where i try to load my save and it says (An Exception Was Thrown) Can someone help?

  34. bolemax says:

    Hey, so I downloaded it, loaded up my save, and change the status of a mission I’d previously started to ‘NotActive’, and I’ve also unchecked ‘HeardKickoff’ after which I saved my save. Now, the mission I’d restarted won’t start. I go to Tannis, select the mission, but when I press ENTER all that happens is a weird sound plays. I can’t start the mission. Anyone knows a fix?

    • mike says:

      Hello, I have no idea, but using the save editor, you can add XP or add the item you want out of the mission. You can also try making it Active again, but I haven’t used NotActive before. Good luck!

  35. Tom says:

    Do I need BruteForce to edit PS3 saves? I’m getting mixed reports. All the links for BruteForce that I’ve found look pretty sketchy.

  36. Chris says:

    I get all the programs (gibbed, horizon,game save) it all works I followed every step I see on YouTube but when I put it back on my flash drive and load the game it is still a stock save nothing done to it. Any one else have that happen and if so what did I miss

  37. Jack says:

    does it work with ps4 ?

  38. Socialfallout says:

    When i try to open a save file to edit it it says Failed to load save: reencode mismatch does anyone know what causes the issue and how to fix it

  39. dsh says:

    I’m getting a reencode error on version 256

  40. Odomobomb says:

    I need help saving the edited ps3 save file after it has been modded and then reencrypting it so that i can put back in ps3. I have recently tried my hand at using gibbed save editor and i got as far as modding my level and adding modded gear but after this point i am having trouble with putting this edited file back into the ps3, i have copied the .SAV file from ps3 then deencrypting file using bruteforce, i modded the levels and copy and pasted codes for modded gear, deleteing the original .SAV file from the folder, then saving the modded .SAV file in the existing folder using the same .SAV file name then reencrypting it with bruteforce, saved it to my usb drive and plugged it into ps3 but when i went to check if the file was there, only the original unmodded profile was there like if nothing had happened.

  41. festive says:

    Heya, I’m not sure if I’ll need to use Horizon to fix this, but if I change saves to be formatted for 360 in gibbed or take an xbox save straight to gibbed it’ll do the same thing. And, if I do need to use Horizon for it, I’ve downloaded it and launched the program a few times, but nothing happens after. Any answers would be great. Thanks!

    • festive says:

      Edit: I’ve opened up Horizon now, though it’s not letting me login to the account I made or Inject my files. Would I just grab the save files I want and put em in? When I do that, it says Invalid STFS Package! Dunno where I’d ask on a Horizon page, so anyone know here? Thanks for the help.

  42. ShadowBladezXIII says:

    I’m getting a weird error message, when I try to load in my file it says ‘Failed to load save file: invalid SHA1 hash’
