I recently decided to try out the GTA IV San Andreas mod and during installation it made a backup of my saves for the regular GTA IV. I don't know why, but I guess the mod needed to delete them.
Anyway, backing them up created these folders:
Inside the first one:
Then the following files were in the two containing folders:
And inside that second folder was these files:
So I just decided to play it safe and moved everything from both backup folders into the saved game directory.
And then when go to load up the game, not only does it not load my saves, it starts a new game. So then I went into the "Game" tab on the pause menu to load them manually, only to get a message saying that there are no saved games present on the hard drive.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
