Hey, I followed your instructions but whenever I hit enter, I keep getting told I need a new gamedata.bat is currently needed to run the process. I've opened and closed the game more than I can count. Any ideas?
You need to put the program in your save folder first, then run it.

p.s. From your description, I guess you have disabled the Steam Cloud Sync, so you may probably have no problem doing account switching. Anyway, enjoy the game~

I was already playing the route B, that's why I came here. When we switchs account, my save files wasn't there, so I look if someone have the same problem. And lucky for me, I found this post. Thanks

p.s. Sorry if wasn't clear enough, English is not my native lenguage.
I've save on another slot after the ending, so I could play on my old save file (Just before the final boss) again. And that was the save file I lost, but I've recover my lastest save file, where I was playing half the route B already. And right now I'm on route C. Thanks again
Glad to hear that~ Wish you a beautiful journey ahead~ :)

But if your save file got written over, then you probably lose it forever.


Something funny just happend.

I login with the account of my friend who played NieR to see if he can "continue". And he can, so I was happy that just my files was gone. Then I enter on my account and start a new game, My computer crash (Always happens, with other games too, so it's normal for me) I reset my computer and when I enter again, and says Continue (Because I have start a new game) My save file was there, in the B Slot. And here comes the funny part.

When I finish the final A, I was so shocked that when the game asks me if I want to save, I save in another slot, so I can fight the final boss of A again, and see the end.

I have played on slot B and I was on half the story, and then my friend comes to visit me and I insist he has to try the game, and thats how I end up here.

So. long story short. Because I have saved in another slot, and start a new game on slot A, I didn't lose my save file, at least, the important one. I lose the oportunity to play again the final boss of A, but that doesn't matter anymore, I'm happy now that I just recover my files

PD: I have a backup of the files, before I started a new game (Because I read this post before doing anything stupid) So the files of my friend are there too. All I need to do is follow the instructions to put back the files on, right?

I say this because when I started a new game, I accidentally overwrite the files of my friend (Because he was playing on slot A) am I right?
As long as you have a copy of that save folder, you are free to do whatever you want~ :)

If someone have played the game in the same computer than I have played, did my save files have been gone forever?. I want to know because I didn't understand what did you mean when you say "I have finally found the way to recover my 40 hours of joy and sadness"

Did you get back your save files?, or you just found someone's save files that was near or exactly where you been?.

no i mean after i did everything according to the instruction and then i open the game like i normally would and then i press continue to attempt to load my save data (in-game) it will crash
Would you mind sharing the save folder for me to take a look?

Before a specific segment of the game to reuse it afterwards?
If you just want to backup your save, just copy your save folder to somewhere. You don't need this tool.

Well nothing seems to work, can't get the game to run at all. Even reinstalled it and it's still the same. Halp :(
Have you tried removing everything from the save folder, leaving it empty?

Thank u sir. Well I just finished the game with the last part where it deletes everything. I was fine with that since I wanted to see what happens.. It was kinda worth it, but I actually wanted to play some of the debug room.. and didn't wanna replay the game if dlc comes out...
So long story short, is there someone that can give me a decent save file.. maybe with all weapons or at least with chapter select or a2 unlocked.
-------------------------------------------------
TLDR:
Can someone give me a savegame which has at least route b finished or better

If you know python, you may examine the code yourself. If you don't, then you will just have to trust me. It's safe.

Read that you got python scripts in your code.
If you choose to use the exe, then you don't need python installed.

No offence OP I'm sure it's fine but still, that's crazyness to me.
It's open-source, you're free to investigate the python script and run that script instead of exe.

Do you still want the second save back?

I started a new game earlier and reached the place, So no.
Thanks for looking into it, I will just play a new game.
Good luck to you and hope you enjoy the game~

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

I am glad for your help.
Here is link to my save files.

xD You think of everything! Many thanks!
