How to Edit Your Skyrim Save Game on PS3 Without Surveys
If you are a fan of Skyrim and want to tweak your save game on PS3, you might be frustrated by the lack of a simple and free way to do so. Many online tools and programs claim to offer a Skyrim save editor for PS3, but they often require you to complete annoying surveys, download potentially harmful software, or pay for a premium service. In this article, we will show you how to edit your Skyrim save game on PS3 without surveys, using only a USB drive and a free program called Skyrim SE Savegame Manager (TESV) [^1^].
What You Need
A PS3 with Skyrim installed and a save game you want to edit.
A USB drive formatted to FAT32.
A PC with Skyrim SE Savegame Manager (TESV) [^1^] downloaded and installed.
A backup of your original save game in case something goes wrong.
Step 1: Copy Your Save Game to USB
On your PS3, go to Game > Saved Data Utility (PS3) and find your Skyrim save game. Press Triangle and select Copy. Choose your USB drive as the destination and confirm. Wait for the transfer to finish and then eject your USB drive.
Step 2: Edit Your Save Game on PC
On your PC, plug in your USB drive and open Skyrim SE Savegame Manager (TESV). Click on File > Open Folder and browse to your USB drive. You should see a folder named PS3 with a subfolder named SAVEDATA. Inside that folder, you should see a folder named BLUS30778-AUTO- (or something similar) with your save game files. Select that folder and click OK.
You should now see your save game profile in the program. You can rename it, delete it, or create a new one. To edit it, click on the Edit button next to the profile name. A new window will open with various options to modify your save game, such as level, skills, perks, inventory, quests, etc. You can also import or export data from other save games or mods. Be careful not to change anything you are not sure about, as it might corrupt your save game or cause glitches.
When you are done editing your save game, click on Save Changes and close the window. You can also make a backup of your edited save game by clicking on Backup > Backup Active Profile.
Step 3: Copy Your Save Game Back to PS3
On your PS3, plug in your USB drive and go to Game > Saved Data Utility (PS3). Find your USB drive and press Triangle. Select Copy Multiple and select all the files in the BLUS30778-AUTO- folder (or whatever it is called). Choose your PS3 system storage as the destination and confirm. Wait for the transfer to finish and then eject your USB drive.
Step 4: Enjoy Your Edited Save Game
On your PS3, launch Skyrim and load your edited save game. You should see the changes you made on PC reflected in the game. Have fun with your customized character and adventure!
