    Yet again a compression toolkit, this time for Borderlands 2...

    I would like to first say a big thank you to Mojobojo for making the initial
    research and utils. Without him i wouldn't have come this far. Thanks!

    This is not an Savegame Editor, that will be taken care of by the team behind
    WillowTree 2.

    NOTE: This is a WIP release, compression is currently not supported yet!

    Borderlands 2 Compression Toolkit by fairchild

    ======================================================= version 0.1.0b ===



    Usage: borderlands2.exe [options] <input> <output>



    Options:

    -d - Decompress.

    -c - Compress.





    Release notes:



    Yet again a compression toolkit, this time for Borderlands 2...



    I would like to first say a big thank you to Mojobojo for making the initial

    research and utils. Without him i wouldn't have come this far. Thanks!



    This is not an Savegame Editor, that will be taken care of by the team behind

    WillowTree 2.



    To use this toolkit you must first extract the savegame from within the

    xbox 360 container (CON), then use this toolkit on the extracted file.

    If you try to use this on the CON file itself it will give you a warning.



    This is not a click 'n play tool, you need to use it from the Command Prompt

    or any other methods that handles this tool.



    WARNING!



    Always backup your saves, this tool may corrupt remove your savegames.





    Decompress

    ==========



    Now to decompress a savegame you run the application by entering the following:



    * <PTEF> = the path to the extracted files, ex: c:\test



    <PTEF>\borderlands2.exe -d <PTEF>\<my savegame filename> <PTEF>\save.decompressed



    Example: c:\test\borderlands2.exe -d c:\test\SaveGame.sav c:\test\save.decompressed



    The toolkit will process the savegame and decompress it's compressed data block

    to the file names "save.decompressed".



    Open "save.decompressed" in your favorite hex editor :)





    Compress

    ========



    To compress and inject the uncompressed blocks back into your savegame use the

    following command:



    NOTE: !! make a copy of your orginal savegame !!



    * <PTEF> = the path to the extracted files, ex: c:\test



    <PTEF>\borderlands2.exe -c <PTEF>\save.decompressed <PTEF>\SaveGame.sav



    Example: c:\test\borderlands2.exe -c c:\test\save.decompressed c:\test\SaveGame.sav



    This will take the decompressed block, named "save.decompressed" and

    compress them, rebuild the package to a file named "SaveGame.sav.rebuilt".



    The file to inject back into your CON file is the file ending with ".rebuilt" !





    NOTE:



    Always make backup of your savegames!!



    Have fun :)

    What does this do mate, have you heard yet of any way we can use PC Borderlands 2 saves on the Xbox360 like we used to be able to?
    Any info on the progress of such things and progress of the new willow tree for BL2?

    It's a util to decompress (re-compress will come later) your savegames. This is a "Work in Progress" version that as of now contains alot of bugs. Working on rewriting it to make it more stable.

    I'm not part of the WillowTree 2 project so i don't have much details, sorry.

    This application is outdated, and i would suggest using any of the available saveeditors that does a much better job with the savegames.
