    Created a new character called 'boom' on Matrix 592 and it saves as a .p extension. Not able to read or edit the character file. Any ideas how to do so? Cannot find any searches relating to this issue. Cheers!

    This is a packed file. You can’t treat it like a plain text file. What do you want to edit anyway?

    Edit it programmatically or use a human readable serialisation format such as JSON.

    You'll have to change the saving format as said above, JSON is good, but matrix saves all variables in the player class so even when you switch over, the player char file will still look fucked up, it'll be readable sorta but still look kinda messed.
