    Thanks for this man, I love this game so much I've beaten it 5 times but it never gets old. This will be so fun to mess with. I want to create a new save and make myself super overpowered.

    Please tell me there is an easier way of dumping saves then the video you posted.

    Can't you just use the save files in ux0:/user/id/savedata/gameid/ ? Or must it be decrypted?

    Saves are encrypted by the system, so you have to follow the game dump process (same for savedata) of modding app.db (only once), putting a Shell in ux0:/Patch/TITLEID and launching manual-as-something and game.
    It's fairly simple, really, and you can then just go to savedata0: in FTP on your Shell-as-Game to get the data.

    See above, needs to be decrypted. System will re-encrypt it automatically when you're done.

    It doesn't get much easier, but it only takes a couple minutes to dump the save if you know what you're doing. I'll make a video on the whole process just for completeness's sake.

    1. THANK YOU!!!
    2. SERIOUSLY, THANK YOU!!!
    3. A little bug I found is that when I tried editing my inventory, if I try and remove the number in the box for the amount or go over 255, the program crashes. For example, I have 5 Peach Seeds in my inventory, if I hit Delete or Backspace to get rid of the number, it crashes.

    Made a video on how to use this, the steps are slightly quicker than in my original video. Might save you some effort.


    Also thanks for pointing out the issues, we'll work on those asap. You guys are great.

    Just noticed the program did not show all the Social Links I had, I scrolled down and several are missing from the list. My save is at the end of the game and the Social Links are unlocked, and complete save for a couple. If it will help the ones that are missing from the list are Kanji, Rise, Chie, Naoto, Naoki, Shu, Yumi, Hisano, and Seekers of Truth.

    Also Hisano and Sayako are both marked as Devil Arcana when one, cant remember which, should be Death.
    Other than that, this seems to work just fine. Though, I have yet to mess with the Day modifier.
    My only minor nitpick is that in the inventory, you cant add fish, books, or bugs to your inventory ... yet.
    Also, under the Social Links, the Progress value determines whether or not your SL Level goes up the next time you hang out with your friend right?

    Sorry I don't know the answer to your question but I have one for everyone. I've already platinumed the game so not super relevant but does anyone know if save editing such as this game or others causes trophies to pop? Or maybe it disables them by default. Awesome program, lovin' it!

    LOVING THIS EDITOR, BEEN WAITING FOR GOD ONLY KNOWS HOW LONG! STELLAR WORK :D however, I have found a little bug :) the same inventory problem that DarkNova pointed out, and a problem with my party characters: I boosted all the party chars to max level and gave them skills, but upon playing, Kanji and Yosuke (so far) came up with 000 HP and 000 SP, and insta-crashed the game the second I tried to run around with them in the TV. Yukiko and Chie fine so far it seems, just the boys that are copping it lol
    Also some of the items I added aren't showing up in the inventory which is weird, but I'm gonna have another look at that tonight to be sure I added them right.
    Thx again man, you are a god! :D

    Thank you everyone, we'll see what we can do about those issues and update accordingly.
    Trophies should still be unlocked normally, the game and the system can't distinguish the difference between normal saves and edited saves.

    This is a nice editor but i don't want to use it, since p4g doesn't need an editor IMO! :)

    Have you tested this ? I ask cause I gave a save 9 Maxed SL and played until I Maxed the 10th. How ever the Max 10 SL trophy never pop'ed. If that was just a fluke on my end and really liked to know because god knows I should have 10 HARCORE RISETTE FAN Trophies by now.

    Haven't tried this editor, nor will I, but I think it's possible that the trophy checks only trigger when a social link is being "upgraded". So if you just set them all to max with a save editor, the game will not be looking to activate the trophy anyway.

    That is what I figured. Hence why I thought Maxing the tenth on in-game might work.

    Oh, my bad. I missed that you actually tried poppin' the last ones. Oh well.

    On the plus side, now it's not too late to go back and do it legit :D
