Save Editing

From Graveyard Keeper Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

NOTE: The encoding of the save game file seems to have changed. It is no longer possible to do a "simple" edit like this one.

It is recommended to SAVE BACKUPS before changing anything if you break your save file.

Save Location[edit | edit source]

On Windows, your save files are stored in your user's App Data folder: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\LocalLow\Lazy Bear Games\Graveyard Keeper\

On MacOS, your save files are stored in $home/Library/Application Support/unity.Lazy Bear Games.Graveyard Keeper

On Linux, your save files are stored in ~/.config/unity3d/Lazy Bear Games/Graveyard Keeper/

Save games do not automatically sync between platforms when using Steam (as of version 1.1.24). However, if you manually copy files between platforms, they seem to work.

Editor[edit | edit source]

I use EditPad Lite 7.

Go to Options.

Configure File Types and click on Unspecified file type and then Editor Options

and select Wrap long lines at the edge of EditPad's window

Editing saves[edit | edit source]

The saves are the .dat Files since the files are so big Notepad++ has problems opening the files so i use EditPad.
When you open the File you need to find this section

Which contains your Tech Points, Quest progress, Perks, Quality of Church and Graveyard and other Stuff.

2781.0Blue Tech Symbol.png,

if you type (:{"_res_type":)+[^}]+\} into the search bar and select Regex it should be the first one
everything after :{"_res_type": is the name of the number under "_res_v":
For Example "inventory_size" would be the first number after "_res_v": in this case 20.0

In this case lets say i want to change the number of the Green Tech PointsGreen Tech Symbol.png. To do this i would need to count everything that is in "",

"g"Green Tech Symbol.png,

until i get to the one i want to change. In This Case "g", for the Green Tech Points. which would be 30 now i would need to count the numbers after "_res_v": until i get to 30tens in this case 2187.0 which i could now change to wathever number i want.
