A Tool to Enable Save Files Sharing
A couple of days ago my save files became unreadable due to a second user account login on the same computer, during which the game overwrote the original GameData.dat.

After searching the whole web for a solution but without any success, I decided to gather as many game saves as possible to study its patterns.

Thanks to 5 kind players who sent their game save folder to me, I have finally found the way to recover my 40 hours of joy and sadness, along with which I also have discovered a way to make save files sharing now possible!

To avoid boring people with technical details, I made a small tool named NierAutoModSave.

With this tool you can use any save files from anyone!

Not that I'm encouraging people go head on with someone else's saves without savoring the beauty of the game, I'm merely provide a possible way for the broken hearts whose game save files have been damaged or lost due to various reasons.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You may download the exe from here:
https://github.com/jimmyazrael/NierAutoModSave/raw/master/NierAutoModSave_en_v_0_1.exe

If you are interested in the script, here's the GitHub repo: https://github.com/jimmyazrael/NierAutoModSave

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the guide (actually it's also in the github repo description):

This tool will guide and help you to import Nier:A's saves shared by others.


Warning:

If you're using Steam Cloud Sync, switching saves will cause conflict between the cloud saves and the local files, and if choose to update cloud saves, it will raplace the original cloud saves. You are advised to disable the Cloud Sync feature for this game to avoid trouble when using this tool.


Requirement:

1. (!!IMPORTANT) Preferably you should have received the whole save folder, or at least you should have the following files: GameData.bat, one or more than one of the SlotData files and probably SystemData.dat. Although the use of SystemData.dat is still unknown.

2. Please make sure you back up your own save folder, as using other's save file will make yours unreadable. If you would like to use your save files again, simply treat your own backup save folder as the one shared by someone else and repeat the very same steps stated below.

Steps:

0. ( !IMPORTANT) PUT YOUR STEAM TO OFFLINE MODE;
1. Back up your WHOLE save folder, which is likely located at Documents\My Games\NieR_Automata ;
2. Remove everything except Graphic.ini in that folder;
3. Put the files (except Graphic.ini) you received from another player in the folder;
if you prefer exe:
4. Put NierAutoModSave.exe in the same folder, run it, follow it, done.
else if you prefer .py script and you have Python installed:
4. Put NierAutoModSave.py in the same folder and run it, follow it, done.

I don't think I will use this but I salute your work, I am glad people with the knowledge and talent work on this game and improve things.
Thank you for the wonderful development.
However, it has no effect.
As usual, gamedata will be blank.

Has you followed completely the instruction steps in this post as well as the instructions when running the exe? Are you using another player's save files? Have you got the whole save file folder?
When exe is started, the following sentence is displayed.

3: illegal multibyte sequence
Failled to execute script NierAutoModSave

The command prompt screen disappears immediately.

When I use savedata of another person, GameData will be updated and it will be from the beginning.

I am using the downloaded file from the following URL
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-frtRzzW5dycXRLLVBhYXcwQ3c/view

I can use the file that I backed up successfully.

I can't get your program (NierAutoModSave_v_0_1.exe) to run

My game crashed and PC restarted, then there is no option to continue my save files.
So I searched and got to this thread. My save files is there in my document
but when I run your program, It display "UnicodeEncodeError: 'Charmap' codec can't encode"
and close instantly.

Is there anything I can do for this?
and thanks for your effort.
can someone upload a file withchapter select enabled plz ? I did end E wihout think it was real...
it doesnt work I think there is some encoding problem in your python file

None
while True:
print u'Please select prefered language 请选择语言\n0 = English, 1 = 中文\n'
idx = raw_input()
try:
idx = int(idx)
if idx !=

There are chinese characters in the code
I fixed the python script by removing all the chinese characters, doesnt work if you dont have chinese in your windows. Works great but please add a notice, go offline on steam before attempting, because it will wipeo your saves if you dont go offline before starting the game when the script tell you to do it

Thanks a lot for the heads-up. Will definitely update the description and put up a notice.

I just add to the repo an English-only version of both the script and the excutable.

I originally intended to build a bilingual tool for both the regular steam English users and my fellow Chinese friends. Guess that doesn't work well. Being a Chinese and programmer, I sometimes hate Chinese characters, they always mess around with complicated Unicode issues.
Why not just use game-save manager?
Which does a scheduled backup

Terribly sorry for the bug concerning the language.

Please download and use this one:
https://github.com/jimmyazrael/NierAutoModSave/raw/master/NierAutoModSave_en_v_0_1.exe

And do remember to put steam to offline mode before running it.

Good suggestion. Guess I was putting too much trust on the system and game itself. Will be careful from now on.

Your problem is kind of different from what this tool is intended to solve, although I can pretty much guess the cause and know a way to solve it.

Do you mind zip your whole save folder and send it to me? I will take a look.

Another warning, it overwrites the files with the ones from the cloud (old save files) if you go online. I just disabled the cloud saves for this game, I can live without them :)
