Permissions and credits
Control Save Editor BETA

A save editor and transfer tool for Control.

The save transfer feature allows you to carry over outfits, mods and other stats to new or existing savegames to start your own New Game Plus.

Features

  • Stats: Edit Source (game currency) and ability points. View player stats such as number of collectibles found, player level, completed missions count and total ability points spent.
  • Inventory: Edit modifier values on personal and weapon mods and change resource/material/jukebox token quantities. Modify inventory item IDs (advanced feature).
  • Unlocks: View your unlocked abilities and items.
  • Outfits: View and change the unlock state of outfits.

Save Transfer Tool

The Save Transfer Tool allows you to transfer your progression between savegames, allowing you to play a New Game Plus or replay missions with your latest loadout.

Supported Transfer Options:
  • Outfits
  • Inventory (personal/weapon mods and all resources)
  • Ability points
  • Source

Warning: If you are starting a New Game Plus, carrying over all your endgame gear will likely imbalance game difficulty! If you are looking for a more balanced NG+ experience, I recommend only transferring outfits and leftover ability points.

I welcome suggestions to make the inventory transfer process more balanced! Feel free to leave a comment with your ideas.
In this initial first release, I am not placing any restrictions on inventory transfer, but one potential solution would be to limit the transfer of items to only 3 or 4 mods of your choice.

Locating and backing up your saves

It is very important that you back up your saves before using this tool! Please read this section carefully.

Your save games are located in the following directory: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Remedy\Control\Default-Epic-User\
(You can copy and paste the above address to Windows Explorer's address bar)

Inside the savegame directory are save slot folders, numbering from savegame-slot-00 up to savegame-slot-10.

savegame-slot-00 is your active savegame and is the slot that is loaded when you select "Continue" from the game's main menu.
All other slots are fixed snapshots of your game progress at each major main mission in the game and are used for the "Mission Select" menu. Once created, these other slots are never updated again.

Backing up your entire game profile
To backup your entire game profile, make a copy of your Default-Epic-User folder and keep it somewhere safe.

Backing up your active savegame slot
To backup your current active savegame, make a copy of the savegame-slot-00 folder and keep it somewhere safe.

If you are starting a new game, it is best to backup your entire game profile.
If you are editing your current savegame, it is sufficient to just backup the active savegame slot. Make sure you backup the entire slot folder, not just individual files within it!
