Guide for Cyberpunk 2077 – Save Editing
I am not responsible if you break your save file or corrupt any game files.
Optional Software requirements:
Notepad++ can be extremely helpful for this kind of editing
notepad-plus-plus.org – https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/
That’s literally it.
File locations and management
First of all, I would suggest making two saves in the same location. This is in case you break something and the game crashes or wish to revert changes.
First, save twice in one location, make sure you can tell them apart, follow my advice, and look at different directions, so the thumbnails are different.
Now that you have made a save to edit, make sure you close the game before continuing.
Save data is located under C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077\
make sure that you navigate to the correct folder and change the username to match yours.
Now that you are there, you should see files titled ManualSave and AutoSave. It would help if you now located the saves you wish to edit and identify them either by looking at the date saved or the screenshot.png located inside the folders.
Finally, the save editing.
Please open the file that’s title contains metadata within your saves folder with a text editor of your choice; for this guide, I will be using notepad++
Your screen should look something like this.
The information in this file should align with your current game state, e.g., Gender, current quest, position, and lifepath. Now to change these values, you simply edit them; for example, if I wished to change physical gender and the pronouns my character uses, I would change body gender and brain gender from “Male” to “Female” like so
Now load up the game and witness the changes you have made.
I hope this guide has helped you to change your game state or skip any bugged quests. This guide exists purely to help people understand and make changes to their saved files. Thank you for reading. Please like this guide and comment below about any issues you may have encountered.
