Can I re-write my character’s history?

Post by Gez »

So, I’m just starting out in Daggerfall Unity, got my custom-class character created, etc. I see in my “character sheet” there’s a history, but it doesn’t match what I had in mind when making this character. Is there a way to edit/re-write that history text? Saw a reddit post about editing “SaveData.txt,” but I can’t find that file on my Mac... Not a big deal, I guess, but it takes away from the player the fun of creating a backstory!

First, you have to locate Unity's Persistent Data Path:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2360&p=27552#p27552

After that, open the Saves folder, then the folder for the save you want to edit and SaveData.txt will be in there. I think the file you actually need to edit is Bio.txt.

Ahhhhh, I see... I had to get my computer to show hidden folders/files. Sweet! Thanks for your help.

An easier way to find the save data:

In DFU, open the save/load menu, select a savegame and click the SAVE# up in the right corner, which links directly to that saves folder.
