OCTOPATH TRAVELER II – Swap Your Main Character Before Beating Their Chapter 4

If you’re like me and want two completely separate parties for the main story.

The Guide

Locate your save data at:

  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Octopath_Traveler2\Steam\User-ID\SaveGames
  • Linux: /home/user/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/1971650/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/Documents/My Games/Octopath_Traveler2/Steam//SaveGames/

(Save 0 is the auto save)

Back up the original just in case then and upload your save to SaveEditOnline.com

Search for FirstSelectCharacterID and set it to 9 (making a note of what number it is originally would be useful as I only know the one for my main character)

Download the newly edited save and place it in your save folder

Start the game up again and you should be good to go


If you’re doing this you need to make sure you go back and set somebody as the main character before you complete all chapter 4s. Completing the chapter 4 of your main character triggers access to post-game things. Just follow all the steps in the guide again, but change FirstSelectCharacterID back to whatever it was originally. Make sure that they’re in the active party before you do this. I don’t know all the ID numbers, but if you forgot the one for your main character Partitio’s is 4 so set it to him.

Do not set FirstSelectCharacterID to 0 as it will just delete the string.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
