I've loved these games since I played them at the time of their original release. After a few normal playthroughs, I started using character mods like Falche to create different playing styles and quite honestly, speed up the game pace. Since then, I've slowly replaced my PC's with Macs for business purposes (I'm a video editor) and used my consoles for gaming. I was excited to hear about the Mac ports on GOG, and bought both Fallout 1 and 2 during the Interplay Weekend.

My problem is however, that I (logically) can't find any editors or trainers for OS X. I wanted to see if I could copy my save and mod it on my friend's PC. But I can't seem to find any save game files other than a save state file. Any ideas on where I can find the save file?

Hi JohnnySG,

There really isn't that much support for the mac versions is there! Which is very unfortunate. However, I found out where the mac version of Fallout GOG keeps its save files. Unfortunately however, I have been unable to use a character editor on these files as when these files are replaced, fallout recognises them as corrupt files. :(

Here is how to find the save games and save character files on Fallout 1 GOG on Mac OSX 10.8.x

1. By default, the /user/Library folder is hidden. You will need to make it visible again.
Launch Terminal, and type in

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

This will permanently reveal the /[User]/Library folder. OSX hides this so you don't accidentally screw around and break something.

2. Now, navigate to this folder.

Macintosh HD/Users/[your user account]/Library/Application Support/Boxer/Gamebox States/com.gog.fallout

Now, when you open this folder, you will see a file called Current.boxerstate. Right click on this file, and select "Open Package Contents".

Voila! Here you will find everything you need. (See attached image).

Now. IF you figure out how to edit your save files or character save files with a fallout character editor, please share here!!!!

I found the .boxerstate file, but I never thought of opening the Package Contents. I feel like a moron now. I'll boot up the PC somewhere this week and tinker with it. If I find something, I'll post it here. Thanks for all your efforts up until now!

I made it work. I downloaded the Falche editor for Fallout 1 from No Mutants Allowed (I can't post links thanks to GOG). Mind you, the download button is small and located under the file specifics.

I copied the entire contents of the .boxerstate file to a USB stick formatted to FAT, and opened it from the stick on the PC by using Falche. Be sure to open the "FALLOUT" folder, and not specific save slots, or this won't work. After that I simply edited my stats and pressed "Apply".

I then copied ONLY the altered save folder from the USb stick, in my case "SLOT07", to the "SAVEGAME" folder in the .boxerstate file on my Mac. Fired up Fallout and enjoyed my maxed out character.

If you're having trouble formatting the disk to FAt on the Mac, use a windows PC. It may take the Mac a little while longer to read the FAT format, but it will pop up eventually. I do have special NTFS recognition softwre on my Mac, So i'm not sure if OS X recognizes FAT natively.

Good luck!

Thats fantastic news mate! I'll give it a whirl. Cheers!
Hey everyone, Good news!!

After a lot of research and testing (and i mean a lot), I have found a way to edit save games on Mac (GOG version).

Using GOG version Fallout 2 + Mac OS X 10.10.1 yosemite, put a http://www in front of all the links (GOG is not letting me place links) and http:// in front of the images in step 3

You will need 3 things:
1. fresh fallout 2 v 1.02 install (GOG version is 1.02 default) with Killap's Unofficial Fallout 2 Patch (Mac)
2. wine + wine-bottler
3. falche 2 (save game editor)

Step One: Install Fallout 2 and the Patch
Patch: (get the mac version under downloads) or
guide: there should be a readme file.

For the Patch, you will need a RAR extractor software (I use The Unarchiver from the apple store). Extract the file then move the patch000.dat into applications/fallout 2 (right click -> show package content). Then go to
drive_c/Program Files/ and paste it there (overwrite the old copy).

Launch Fallout 2 make a character and test if the patch was installed proper (observe the small rock behind the guard when you first load). Make a Save File and Exit the game.

Step Two: Download and install winebottler package (if you don't have it already)
software: (Get the 1.7.33 development if you are running OS X 10.10.1)
guide: (scroll down to method 3: follow step 1 - 3)

Basically, download it, open the DMG file and copy Wine and WineBottler into Application folder

Step Three: Download Falche 2 and convert into winebottler mac app.

When you have downloaded falche 2, you should have FALCHE2.EXE You should right click this and open with Wine. You will see the following, and you should click Convert to simple OS X application and click Ok

When you do this, it should open WineBottler (it takes a time, be patient) On the next window only select "this is the program, copy it to the App Bundle" then click install

Once you clicked install, it will give you name change option and save file location. When you are ready click install (The first time it does this it will take some time). When it is done you can open it from WineBottler from On My Mac tab or open it from where you saved it. If you have done it right you should get the this:

You now have to navigate to the save folder: which was hard to find...
Click browse: My Computer/Z:/Applications/Fallout 2/drive_c/program files/ 2 (just select the fallout 2 folder). Click OK and your save game should show up.

Once you have made your changes, click apply and ok. Now navigate to that same location (above) and copy the entire SLOT1 and paste in the following location:
USER (your account name):/ Library (it might be hidden, google how to unhide it)/ Application Support/ Fallout 2/ Saves/

Viola you are done, Load up the game and check out your new character.
If you are having any problems msg and maybe i can help troubleshoot,
If its working.. GREAT!! =3 i love this game
If you want to give me extra thanks, I am always looking for CS GO skins (msg me if you have a trade) Cheers.

(IMPORTANT)PS: make sure you make backup of your save files prior to any changes (this means the save files in both locations: in applications & in library/application support
