God mode is banned in LAN mode (I believe the PC does the same) this is to stop online and LAN cheating

I just got done with the game and 3/4 DLCs and was about to move onto the 4th, all on my first play through. This was when the app crashed and would crash whenever I tried to click on "Singleplayer" in game. I soon solved this by removing that save file from the borderlands save folder. Unfortunately, this means I can't play the game with my character I had spent something like 36 hours on. If someone can tell me how to either; uncorrupt the save file, get a new save file, or spawn in XP and Weapons. Thanks!

If you have the save game files (the entire folder) send them to support we can have a look.

If they are damaged beyond repair you can find my save games hidden inside the game data disk image. There are two saves. One is a 100% play through of the main game (all missions) but the DLC has not been started. The second is the same as the first save but with all of the DLC complete as well. The second play thorough has not been started in either save. The character is tooled up with guns and upgrades.

So I sent the files, but now I'm interested in these save files you speak of. I would mostly use them until I could get my old save back, but I don't know where this "game data disk image" is located.

EDIT: Looking back on the post, I found the instructions, and followed them, and found it!

Thanks again!

So I sent it to support, but they just regarded it as another moved save file. At least I have your awesome save file to play on, though!

We are training up a new support Ninja, I usually only get called in to help when stuff gets real strange. If you reply saying Edwin said he would have a look they will pass it on.

I might take a few days to check it over as I am busy on other tasks (my role is not support or social media ninja) but I will confirm if the save is truly broken or not.

Hey eddeduck,
I purchased the DVD version when it first came out. And since then Ive installed it on my computer, then had to reinstall the operating system, then reinstalled it, etc.. over the last two years. But I never remembered to deactivate it. I have now used up all my activations, but only have it installed on one computer. Is there anyway to re-set the activations? Thanks

If you only ever installed it on one Mac you will only have used up one activation, even if you reinstall the OS without deactivating. The game only uses up one activation token per Mac. Using up all 5 activations means that the game has been activated on 5 different Macs.

However if you send an email to thatsnomoon [at] feralinteractive [dot] com containing your serial number I can have look at your activation history see what happened in your case.

Interesting, in that case, I have a sneaking suspicion my brother 'borrowed' my discs of Boarderlands, and probably shared it out to his friends. Thanks for the info, it would seem ive got some heads to crack.

Do you mean Borderlands 1 or 2?
