How to Edit Your Save Game in Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut
Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut is a cyberpunk role-playing game that lets you customize your character with various skills, abilities, and equipment. However, if you want to tweak your character even more, you might be interested in editing your save game file. This can allow you to change your attributes, karma, money, items, and more.
Editing your save game file is not officially supported by the developers, and it may cause bugs or glitches in your game. Therefore, you should always backup your save game file before editing it, and do it at your own risk. Here are the steps to edit your save game file in Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut:
Download the Shadowrun Save Game Editor from this link. This is a third-party tool that works for both Shadowrun Returns and Shadowrun: Dragonfall[^2^] [^3^]. Extract the zip file and run the srr_binary_editor.exe file.
Locate your save game file. It should be in a folder like C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\userdata\\ [your_steam_id]\\234650\\remote\\saves[^1^]. The save game file has a .bytes extension and a long name that starts with \"savegame-\". Copy the save game file to another folder as a backup.
Open the save game file with the Shadowrun Save Game Editor. You will see a list of variables and values that you can edit. For example, you can change your character's name, race, gender, attributes, skills, karma, money, items, etc. You can also edit your companions' stats and inventory. Be careful not to change anything that you don't understand or that might break the game logic.
When you are done editing, save the file and close the editor. Replace the original save game file with the edited one in the Steam folder.
Run Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut and load the edited save game. You should see the changes reflected in your character and inventory. Enjoy!
Note: Some changes may not take effect immediately or may require reloading a scene or restarting the game. For example, if you change your AP pool (action points), you may need to reload a combat scene or start a new mission to see the difference[^2^]. Also, some changes may conflict with the game's story or progression, so use them wisely.
Tips and Tricks for Playing Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut
Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut is not only a game of choices and consequences, but also a game of tactics and strategy. You will need to plan your moves carefully, use your resources wisely, and adapt to different situations. Here are some tips and tricks to help you survive and thrive in the world of Shadowrun:
Concentrate your fire. Do not spread it among enemies. Take one out - then the next. Go after Mages/Shamans first if possible. They do buff and debuff a lot[^1^].
Use cover. Cover reduces the chance of being hit by ranged attacks, and also provides some protection from area-of-effect attacks. You can see how much cover a tile provides by looking at the shield icon next to it. Green means full cover, yellow means partial cover, and red means no cover.
Use grenades. Grenades are very useful for dealing damage to multiple enemies, destroying cover, or applying status effects. You can also use them to flush out enemies from cover by throwing them behind them[^2^]. You can buy grenades from vendors or find them in loot containers.
Use cyberware. Cyberware are enhancements that you can install in your body to improve your abilities or grant you new ones. You can buy cyberware from vendors or find them in loot containers. However, cyberware also reduces your essence, which limits your magic potential. If you are a mage or a shaman, you may want to avoid cyberware or use only low-essence ones.
Use etiquette. Etiquette is a skill that allows you to choose special dialogue options that can help you avoid trouble, gain allies, or get extra rewards. You can choose one etiquette at character creation, and learn more by increasing your charisma attribute. There are six etiquettes in the game: Academic, Corporate, Gang, Security, Shadowrunner, and Socialite.
Check in with your teammates. Your teammates are not only useful in combat, but also have their own personalities, stories, and opinions. You can talk to them between missions at your hideout, and learn more about them or their views on the current situation. Sometimes they may offer you advice, information, or even side quests.
Sell your paydata. Paydata are valuable pieces of information that you can find or hack during missions. You can sell them to vendors or contacts for extra money. However, some paydata may have consequences if you sell them or keep them for yourself. For example, some paydata may reveal secrets that could affect the plot or your reputation.
