    Current version: v2.06.

    Fixed a error when deleting multiple references at once.
    Added note if save game is corrupt.

    See changes.

    If you have problems wih this new version, try previous version instead.


    Other savegame editors/cleaners i would recommended:
    SkyrimTools by Mark Fairchild, supports saves with new string count format too
    Savegame script scalpel by flexcreator
    TESV ESS Files Editor by fubrus



    How to use it?

    1. Click open, choose a save game file.

    2. Click "FixScriptInstances", it removes all orphan script instances.

    3. This is optional, and not compatible with all mods.
    Click a Delete all #->

    4. Push save or save as button. Make sure you have backups for both savename.ess and savename.skse (if its installed).
    Load a save in the game, and save it again. Now it should be fully cleaned.
    Re-saving removes script names etc.

    Auto backup, if on,(default) creates a backup from your save, named as backup-date-time.ess and backup-date-time.skse.

    "Clean other" this cleans orphan array7 items + visited worldspace array items having a formId 0.
    "Clean formlists" removes all form lists items with refId 0.


    About source, its embedded in executable, and you can view and edit it by loading a file in rosasm. Maybe false positives problem is because a small file size, and non standard code routines, because its written using x86 asm language. I tried change code different, but no luck, i cannot find which part of code causes this detections.

    Source exported from .exe is downloadable on misc files.

    A note for Avast Antivirus users:

    "Avast will think the program is a virus and give you h*** trying to extract it.
    First, set your mind at ease: go into the virus chest (under the maintenance tab), right-click, and select "scan". Avast will determine that the program is not, in fact, a virus.
    Then, click on settings -> global exclusions. There will be a text box to add a new exclusion. Type in the address Avast snatched the program out of when you tried to extract it (it will be in the virus chest) and click add.
    Now right-click on the file in the virus chest and select restore.
    You may now run the program."

    Thanks to ArmedKevin117 for instructions about Avast.

      That usually means your in game string count has exceeded the maximum allowed in game. Get rid of a few string heavy mods and the save cleaner will work again.

      it still does work, but you can only use one option at a time, that means open the program select the option, select the save and when the program closes the save is cleaned. ive used it a few time to fix a bug i keep having.

      You need to configure your Skyrim RAM to handle all those mods.

    Some people already wrote it, but the program stops working immediately after choosing save file... Old version, new version too...
    I think, I've read that it's caused by save reaching more than 10 MBs.

      That is usually caused by exceeding the string limit in game. It is fixed by disabling one or two string heavy mods. Good luck!

      I tested a brand new save game and this utility still closes after choosing the save game both old and new version. Doesn't work anymore.

    The program closes itself as soon as i choose a save file. I checked it, it has nothing to do with my anti-virus.

    This has been the best save cleaner by far since I got it 5 years ago. Runs great with Mod Organizer, and anyone not using a mod organizer has a 100% chance of nonstop problems with their game once they get modding. The SaveTool is just one piece of the crash fixing puzzle. If the main buttons on the left don't fix it, try resetting Havok and going into the mod editor to delete forms/scripts of mods you think are the problem. Other crashes I've had: any one random ENB local setting being wrong, crashing at 3 or 4 gigs of memory (not anymore though,) running out of virtual memory because your Page file is too small (Skyrim NEEDS a couple gigs minimum of pagefile,) having other video players open causing crashes, messing with uGrids then crashing when you go outside. I also haven't used LOOT in 5 years because it never worked well enough anyway. You really need explore your plugin list with TESVEdit, Apply Filter, and look at what get overwritten because that can also break things.

    If you hit every button in this SaveTool and your game is still broken, it's possible it's one of these other things and not the save. As far as fixing your save though, this is as good as it gets.

    The moment I point this at a save file, it closes. There's no opportunity to actually try and do anything.

    When I load a savegame into this tool, all I get is "SaveTool.exe has stopped working".

    Any solution to this?

    Update: ah I see that other people have this problem too and recommend Fallrim Tools instead...

    Works well with early saves.  When I try to load a save from a game a couple of hours in, it crashes the tool.  Any ideas?

      That often means you have passed the games allowable string count. You can lower it by uninstalling a string heavy mod or two.

      Hmmm.   I'll reduce it a bit.  However, that shouldn't be a limit of the tool, should it?

      For anyone having issues opening saves with this tool, use Fallrim Tools.

      Unfortunately when one has crash fixes higher than version 6, this application wont be able to succefully load a save file for cleaning. It
      crashes when trying to load a save file. This happened to me after I
      exceeded a certain amount of installed animations and had to update to a higher version of crash fixes for my game to continue.

    This tool is great.
    I was able to ckean my save, without any difficulty after uninstalling a mod.

    In an older version, there was a feature (dropdown:menu) to clean plugins.
    Is there a similar function to clean plugins in the current version?
