Q: What do I do if I made too many changes and now my save is destroyed, and I don't know what to change back?


There is an auto backup that will turn your save file into a compressed file in the folder it is in..

So you will have 2 files, the one that you go to BFD and DIIIEdit with, and the other one, hidden away in a folder somewhere just in case.
Once you have confirmed that your new modifications work, you can replace the extra backup with the TESTED and working one.

Q: If I want to change a value in the raw tab what will it do?
A: Well that all depends on the value you want to change.

Q: Why are there 2 different versions?
A: There are 2 different versions because each save file has specific requirements.

Q: What all can I change?
A: Every aspect of the save file.

Q: I Just use a Hex Editor because this program can't do all of the things that I want. Will you add them to the program?
A: There is nothing in the save file that you can edit with a hex editor that you can't edit with this program.

Q: I have received an error message! What do I do?

Q: How do I make the affixes roll the exact number that I want?
A: Not possible. Every affixes you applied to an item has an influence to the item “Seed”. Seed is what controls every numbers in that item which is why you only see affixes in range(xx-yy) form. Also, some affixes do roll in a fixed number rather than range. The best you can do is duplicate the item multiple times and pick the best roll out of the bunch

Q: After duplicating tons of items now I found the best seed(best roll), is it possible to use that seed on other items?
A: Absolutely! All you have to do is copy and paste the item then change it to whatever you want. This way, you will have all the different items with the same stats! Make sure you use “Copy/Paste” function and not “Duplicate” to ensure the seed get copied over.

Now, the same chest piece would gives you 660-759 armor instead of 50

A: Item Level means the level of a hero required to use the item. Legendary Level means the level of the item. Most of the time it is controlled by affixes.
