I am trying to configure a save file to advance a quest but I have no idea how to use Gibbed's Save Editor. Someone care to walk me through? I need to advance through a problematic part of a quest. Pics would help.

  • Could you provide more details? What platform is the corrupted save file from? What's the issue with the corrupted save file? Mar 29, 2013 at 1:02
  • I have a mac, but I am going to migrate the file to a PC to work on it. gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/111790/… That's the question I set up for my broken file. Mar 29, 2013 at 1:13
  • If it's corrupted, you dun goof'd. It means that for some reason something (usually through a modder or editor of some sort) messed up, and your account's pretty much a goner.

  • @JonathanChow Could you upload the save file through a file hosting website like Mediafire, and edit in the download link in your question? This is so people can test it with Gibbed's Save Editor. Mar 29, 2013 at 2:30
  • @retrosaur I was just playing the game. This was before I even discovered gibbed's save editor Mar 29, 2013 at 2:32

Firstly you will need to open your save into Gibbed's Borderlands 2 save editor and move your way to 'Raw' to edit your characters Raw Data.

Now scroll down until you see MissionPlaythroughs. When you find, it navigate your way to the arrow that will open up the collection window. Image below will give assistance if needed.

Now that you've opened up the collections list you will notice 3 MissionPlaythroughData the first one is Playthrough 1 (Normal Mode), the second one is Playthrough 2 (True Vault Hunter Mode), and the third one is most likely the 'Something Interesting thing' that Gearbox Is planning on when they raise the level cap which will be a Playthrough 3 no doubt. Depending on what playthrough you're on, choose from 1 of 2 existing options available since Playthrough 3 has no data yet. Once you've clicked one of these navigate your way to the MissionData collection arrow. Image below will assist you if needed.

Once you're in your quest information you will notice a lot of quests. There are two ways to look for the quest you REALLY want to edit, #1 is looking to mission on the right this will show you the name or "Codename" of the mission, and #2 is seeing if the mission is Active, Not Started, or Failed. Once you've found the mission you want to edit look to Status and change the mission to ReadyToTurnIn if you want to instantly complete the mission. If you want to complete a few sub objectives, or objectives you will need BL2 to reference the number of requirements. You can access these options by looking to ObjectiveProgress and SubObjectiveSetIndexes opening one of these will show a set of numbers depending on the quest.

Like I said before you will need BL2 or a wiki to reference the 'complete' number of the mission requirement. Once you have something to reference from you can then modify the numbers and set a certain objective to 'Complete' some missions may be different though whereas 0 Is incomplete and 1 is complete - remember that! Image below will give assistance if needed.

It may take some time to get a hang of, but its really not that hard if you think about it. It also comes in handy if you have a quest that you're having a really tough time with such as; finding rare monsters or killing a hard raid boss. It also comes in handy if you're making a save from the ground up.
