Ren’Py is mostly a visual novel engine that has been quite popular lately in the adult gaming industry. Developers sometimes add unnecessary grind, stats, and currency to extend their games. Some people like me mostly enjoy a tame amount of grind but there are also people who like to only enjoy the story and characters. For them, the grind can be tiresome. There are also some developers who are notorious for making their game a grind fest. So to fix these problems, you need something that can manipulate the parameters and eliminate the grinds. If that is the case, a Save Editor is a very good tool for you. If you know some console commands then you can do that as well.

For Example, if you dont want to grind in-game money in a Ren’Py game, you can use the Save Editor to add as much money as you want in your in game walleto, increase stats of your character etc.

A forum user named Last Moment has created a tool that can easily edit your Ren’Py save files. It works fairly well for Ren’Py visual novels.

Prerequisties:
Download and install .NET Framework 4.5 Download From Microsoft.

Ren’Py Save Editor

Features:

  • Modify Save file in place.
  • Search for variable or value.

How To:

  • Run the Save Editor.
  • Click on the “Load Ren’Py Save” button on the top right.
  • Open the save file. It is usually in the /game/save folder.
    e.g. G:\Harem_Hotel-v0.11.2-pc\game\saves
  • Now you can see a list of variables. You can search a variable or value in the search box on the right side.
    Tip: If you want to increase money for example and don’t know which variable’s value to edit there is an easier way. Simply play the game and keep the money (for example) in an uneven value, like $137. Save the game and now search the variable. Now you can find the variable easily.
  • Enter a suitable value and click on Apply Change button.
  • Now close the Save Editor and enter the game and see if the value is edited successfully.
