Fallout 3 Save Editor



I wrote this application this morning to make it easier to modify S.P.E.C.I.A.L. traits and player level in save files.  It was a pain to do it manually.  Some very important notes:

-You need .NET Framework 3.5 installed to use it.
-It backs up the selected save file everytime you click "Save" (the back up has .bak appended to the name).  If you save a game and try to open it in FO3 and it behaves ackwardly (e.g. never stops loading).  Simply delete the modified save file and remove the ".bak" from the file name to restore your old save.
-I do not recommend increasing your level status.  I haven't tried this as there is no real reason to.  The reason why I allow you to modify the level is to lower your level which, the next time you gain XP, it forces you to level up again.  Keep in mind that you must use all 20 (or 23) skill points every time you level up.  You must space yourself out so that you will hit level 20 and still have the 20/23 points to spend otherwise you will get stuck in that dialog.
-Because it retrieves the name of the player from the file name, this software does not work on the autosave or quicksave.

I tried to do as best as I can to make sure it cannot corrupt saves but there is a remote possiblity that it can.  If you want to be super-dooper careful, manually back up the save you intend to edit to a different directory prior to messing with it.  It can only damage a save file when clicking on "Save."

Changes in 1.2.1 (Released 10/29/2010):
-Quicksaves no longer appear in the drop down list.
-Fixed other minor bugs discovered when working on the Fallout New Vegas Save Editor.

Changes in 1.2 (Released 1/5/2010):
-Added support for Broken Steel (automatically increases the level limit to 30).
-Allows to change the Save Number and Play Time (not sure if this is working 100%).

Changes in 1.1 (Released 12/2/2008):
-Updated level code to be more flexible.  If attributes worked and level didn't before, level should now work for you.
-Added a new warning message for short player names.  If your player name is three characters or longer, you will not see it.  The warning details how to change your name ("ShowNameMenu" command) should you have to.

Have fun with it and if you have any suggestions, let me hear 'em.
