    Hey Rick, with the new DLC 5 and the PS4 Save wizard being able to extract the .sav file, you think you will update the Save Editor to read the save files? It would be amazing and I’m sure I’m not the only one who would appreciate the hell out of you even more so with PS4 capability! This editor pulled me back into borderlands 2 for an extra 1000 hours on the pc version a couple years back and now with the new dlc (and no gaming pc at the time unfortunately) I would love to be able to test out and review over all content available with the save editor on the Playstation 4 as well!! Your editor is the best and I hope we can find out some more info from ya.

      I have no plans to support commercial save tools. The problem with opening those saves is entirely their fault, and you should ask them to properly export/import the real save file.

      How to open a ps4 save in Gibbed
      Using Python and Save Wizard.

      Step 1) Download the “” found here “”

      Step 2) Download python 2.7 not 3+

      Step 3) Create a new folder on c:\ called BL2 so you have a folder like this “c:\BL2” now place the “” here.

      Step 4) Export raw save file from Save Wizard using the advanced option.

      Step 5) Place the file into the folder you made in step 1 and rename it to “unencryptedsave.sav”.

      Step 6) Open CMD and type “cd \BL2” and press enter and then copy and paste “c:\\python27\python unencryptedsave.sav encrytpedsave.sav” and press enter again. (Just minimize CMD for later)

      Step 7) Now you have a new file in the “c:\BL2” folder called “encrytpedsave.sav” this will now open in Gibbed as an xbox .sav file, edit your save how you see fit.

      Step 8) after you have edited save open CMD back up and copy and paste “c:\\python27\python – d encrytpedsave.sav unencryptedsave_edited.sav” and press enter.

      Step 9) rename “unencryptedsave_edited.sav” back to original name for example “Save0001.sav” then import it back into the advanced bit of Save Wizard, click Apply and you’re done. (if greyed out just click on a character and overwrite it with the same character).

    Is there going to be a new version when the new dlc is published?

    • Rick says:

      There already is.

      • J_rau says:

        Hey rick, I downloaded the new version of the editor and boosted my characters on my PS3 files but when I cross save to PS4 and open them they are still 72 and are missing the new rainbow items I put in. Does the new version not support console or am I doing something wrong?

      • Flippy says:

        YAAAY !! Many thanks, man ! Realy appreciated !! 🙂

        If not, can you provide a link? Any download link I find points to this version.

        Thanks – great piece of software btw. cheers

    Hey Rick, I just downloaded the editor, and it won’t let me do anything. Window opens, shows info, but try to click and nothing happens. Is there something else I need to download, or is something glitched? I’m just like a lot of other people, and felt my heart sink a little when I found out the gear I have been hoarding for the past 5 years is obsolete.

  4. Invisible Mandoa'a says:

    Hey Rick,

    This still doesn’t work on Windows 10 2 years later.
    The Borderlands 2.SLN does nothing and windows 10 says it simply cannot run this file.

    Any way to fix this?
    Theres no option to change compatibility to earlier versions of windows.
    I know im not the only one having this issue

    • Rick says:

      Sounds like you downloaded the source code instead of the latest release.

      You want, whatever the latest version is.

  5. Chih Hsiang says:

    hi Rick,my English no well.
    Thank you provide the Save Editor.
    I want to ask,the [Bonus Stats] can modify it?
    My value is too high…this makes me very headache

  6. BuFu EVO says:

    I emailed save wizard and they said this…


    The save is output in it’s raw state and that may differ on the PS4 to
    say that of the PC.

    As Gibbed appears to be open source, there’s no reason why support for
    our decrypted save could not be addded.

    Hey Rick, your editor is just fantastic , i’m a ps4 player i really think that having a possibility to using the editor on Ps4 would be nice , probably not just me, do you have any plans on doing it possible to use it on Ps4?

  11. Lucian says:

    Olá, bom dia!

  12. Dizaster says:

    Is there a way to use this on PS4 without a PS3 or save wizard? Not paying for that and don’t have access to my ps3

  17. F13RY PH03N1X says:

    Hey Rick, was wondering are you going to be dipping your feet in a Borderlands 3 Save Editor or have you moved onto other interests. Your Editor was so good for BL2, just messing about with crazy guns was so much fun and really kept me around BL2 far longer than i would have thought.

    What happens if two saves have the same Guid?

  22. Doug A Driggs says:

    Will this wok if I am using a chromebook. It seems like it will only on windows.

  23. Paul says:

    Hi, i was asking if anybody knows why you are able to choose the pimpernel and sand hawk while creating guns. But it instantly turns red and when save it just goes away? and also how can i create new safes. I tried it with the option but the character doesn show up in my game.
