Hi, I started playing on the Game Pass. I stop playing just after completing Furrowfield and the first quests in Awakening island, I thought I could just transfer my save file but it seems it doesn't work.

My question is: Can I just simulate my Game Pass on my Steam version with this save editor?

Thanks!

Hi,
I don't have GamePass DQB2.
If you can provide the save data, we may be able to solve this problem.

I just solved it. I had to search for every folder for the right file. One for the main save and the other files for the right island.

Your save editor help me through the process, so thanks!!

Is it possible to use this to learn all the recipes as well? That and being able to edit the Player Name if possible would be great! Otherwise this is awesome so far.

Edit: Turns out you can change the player name in-game, so that's not necessary. But a way to know all recipes/fill in the Builderpedia would be awesome still.

I think the story people are hardcoded and would have to be changed with a memory editor instead of from the save file. I haven't been able to find where that gets stored in memory yet though.

This story has nothing to do with saved editor, but
Successfully rewritten textures.
That's pretty cool, is that just for block textures?

Based on your map flattener I was able to throw together a basic tile editor, it's pretty simple for regular blocks, but the items (or "item" blocks) are confusing me with how some of the data is stored in the save files.

Excellent work!
Information on the item was researched a bit in the past.

Valid for all textures
However, you can edit, but not add

It doesn't look like anyone has done this so far, but I went ahead and did some translation for the newer version.(Editor 0.033, Process 0.90) It's not perfect, and the block file still needs done, but here they be:
Edit: By "translation", I mean inserting values from the older translated files (while matching the new format and listed item changes)

Whenever you finish the 4th chapter and find the hermit, the ability to buy items with gratuity points is unlocked. Could this change be found in the save data? It would be a nice addition to the editor.

Hey Turtle-Insect! Where do I find this linkdata.exe?
Can't seem to find it here or on your github page. Wanted to give it a try :)

I assumed that I would build it myself.
You can build it with Visual Studio 2022.
The latest executable at this time is attached.

Holy shit it totally works!! You rock Turtle-Insect! :D
There's only one thing I still don't quite get. There's a texture container file (like the one with the grass block texture which you replaced in your video) which consists of multiple .DDS files. How do you repack multiple textures into the one .G1T file?

I only managed it some time ago with a different program, but I forgot with what program and how I did it. But nonetheless here's the result:

Okay I got it.

- you open the program "qg1t_tool.exe"
- load/open the .g1t file into the program which you want to alter
- select the texture you want to replace in the bottom right drop box
- click on "replace (browse)" at the bottom
- now select the .dds file which you want to have inside your .g1t file
- once its loaded it has already saved the file
- and you can close the program
- now simply pack the file and import it into the Linkdata at the right place
