WHAT IT DOES
ReSaver is a new Skyrim savegame editor designed to provide more information that earlier tools, and to work with SkyrimSE savefiles as well as SkyrimLE savefiles that utilize the new format produced by Crash Fixes. It is release version and is relatively stable and reliable. Performance has gotten pretty good!
The interface is modelled after Save Game Script Cleaner; it's not quite as fast (because of Java instead of super speedy assembly language) but it is actively maintained and has a much richer feature set. Like filtering using regular expressions, and scanning your scripts and esps for context! Support for SkyrimSE has been added. For SkyrimLE, it should read and write saves that exceed the string table limit, as long as you're using Crash Fixes v10 or later.
- Unzip the archive into a folder somewhere.
- Double-click on the file "ReSaver.exe".
- Unzip the SkyrimTools archive somewhere.
- Double-click on ReSaver.exe.
- Choose your savegame.
- You should see a tree structure that has all of the save's script elements.
- Go to the "Clean" menu and select "Show Unattached Instances". This will filter the list and show only the script instances that aren't attached to anything.
- Go to the "Clean" menu and select "Remove Unattached Instances".
- Save to a new file.
- Load your savegame in Skyrim and make sure it's working properly.
is quite stable and I use it myself has dropped back to hyper-alpha status, now that SkyrimSE support is in there. A lot of very deep code changes, so SkyrimLE support is back to alpha also.
I have hundreds of mods, including dozens of major quest mods. I NEED a serious save editor. That's why I wrote one. I can't promise that it's perfect. It's possible that it will ruin your savegame, hard drive, childhood, and
kidneys all major organ systems. In other words, there is no guarantee of fitness for any particular purpose, etc. But it's pretty good raw.
- Java is a requirement -- ReSaver is written entirely in Java.
- Mod Organizer is strongly recommended for managing your mods and savegame directories. I'll try to add some explicit support for Nexus Mod Manager at some point -- especially now that it may become the primary mod manager for the Skyrim universe.
- Test the tools! Report any problems! Report any annoyances!
- Try cleaning a few savegames with ReSaver, see it the new tool works at all.
- Play with the tool, try to get it to crash in exciting ways. Let me know how you crashed it.
- Find problems or annoyances with the user interface.
- If you would like to donate, Steam gift cards are good, or donations through Nexus.
- Really, I'll accept anything. :-)
- Seriously, I'll take a high-five, or a photo your cats. An envelope full of your pubes? Sure!
- But it's not necessary. I wrote these tools because I love Skyrim.
