I have purchased GTA San Andreas from Mac App Store, played a bit with it but I know the story because I passed the game three times already on my Xbox.

I would like to download 100% complete save game so I can play through out the San Andreas area, but I can't seem to find the save game location on my mac.

Now, a simple google search leads me to this:

QUOTE
"If You Have a save file, go to Applications folder, Right click( control+click) the GTA San Andreas icon and choose "Show Package Contents from the drop down box.
Then navigate to Contents / Resources / Transgaming / c_drive / Rockstar Games / GTA San Andreas / data. There is where your save games should be. This is only for mac."


But there are no save game files in that location, so when I download a 100% save game and put it in this location, nothing happens.

Are there some special save games for mac?
Does anyone have a 100% complete save game for mac to share?

..i'm going insane over here. confused.gif

I don't think anyone here made a GTA San Andreas Mac Edition savegame yet, but I think the normal saves should work. This game is only a port to Cider, a Windows emulator for Mac, it's not natively Mac so the files should be the same. As a result, have you checked your user documents folder and see if there's a GTA San Andreas User Files folder there?

I couldn't find any related folders with "GTASAsf8.b" files in them. Searched my entire hard drive for thesr files and no results, other than those I have download from the internet of course.

So that made me think that the files are not the same.. I mean, I made some save games while I played, so if I search for "GTASAsf8.b", I should find my saves right? But no luck.

"sf8" in the file name merely means Save File 8. You're better off searching for all files with *.b extension.

Tried it all already, can't seem to find anything that relates to GTA: SA save games.
Been searching for "*.b", "GTASAsf1.b", "GTASAsf2.b"... etc.

Literally searched whole hard disk.

.. data folder also has no save games. Puzzled. confused.gif

Okay then, then instead of *.b, try *.set for the settings file. The savegames will go in the same folder.

"gta_sa.set" is the only .set file in GTA:SA folder, and it's located in data folder.

I tried placing .b files in the data folder earlier and it didn't work.

Okay then try doing the first game mission and saving in the safehouse. After that quit the game and try searching for the savefile, either by the *.b extension or by the keyword "GTASAsf", it has to be somewhere after you save. notify.gif

Hi!

I just bought San Andreas on the App Store as well! smile.gif

The same saved games from Windows work on OSX too. You need to put them in the following directory:

CODE

/Users/<YOURUSERNAME>/Library/Application Support/Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas/p_drive/Documents/GTA San Andreas User Files


The first save-game file that I found online crashed the app when I tried to load it, but this one definitely worked and it's pretty close to 100%:

More are at:

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Eric

Ok, works now!

The problem was I had "hidden system files" option turned on, so I couldn't find my user files in Library.
Turned off the option so I can see hidden files now and voila, save game files all of a sudden showed up.

Thanks dude.
