Black Book – How to Edit Your Savegame: Money, Skill Points, Herbs

Due to this game having quite severe difficulty spikes if you aren’t prescient and always have the perfect deck & item combo equipped, here’s my guide on how to edit your savegame to make life easier.

Guide to Edit Savegame


This way you can change your Money, your Skillpoints and even how much of each Herb you have in your inventory, to either make the game easier to beat when those massive spikes in difficulty happen, or to outright make yourself nigh-on invincible.

The savegames are saved in plain text, so you can edit them with Notepad++ (or another tool, but take care that it is one that doesn’t change the formatting and automatically backups the original).

You can find the “savefile”-file at:

  • %AppData%LocalLowMorteshkaBlack BookSaves

The first entry is always your most recent Autosave.


Do this at your own risk! If you’ll change the file structure, then the savefile will be considered broken by the game.

How to Change Your Available Money

Search for the term “CurrentMoney”, which you can find on the first “page” after opening the savefile in Notepad++.

You can freely change the value you find there; I’ve personally tested it up to a five digit value, and that works with only slight display issues on Vendor screens, which do not affect the functionality however.

How to Change the Number of Herbs in Your Inventory

Search for the following term:

  • “HerbsOrder”

Here you’ll see the numbers corresponding to the types of herbs you are currently carrying; don’t worry, you don’t need to figure out which herb is linked to what number, you simply need to look at the numbers themselves, and compare them to the “Items” : [-list directly above this section.

For every corresponding Number, you can set the Value to anything you like; I’ve personally tested it up to 4 digits, i.e. 1000+ works fine with the UI and game.

How to Change Your Available Skill Points

For the Skill Points, do a search for:

  • “SpentSkillPoints”

Make sure you are searching in the forward direction from the top to find the correct entry for the Autosave!

If the Value is shown as “0”, that means you currently have 0 Skill Points.

To get 5 Skill Points, set it to 5, and so on.
