Hi, I've been playing on a pirated PC install for a while after having previously played it on my PS3, and now there is a discount in steam for 30 euro (~$33) until tomorrow I wanted to buy it and ditch the pirated install. Am I right to assume the original steam version keeps the saves online? or will it recognize my local save files from the pirated install? (and if that's the case, will it then also save them online for a future reinstall?)

I don't have any insight but I would assume you shouldn't really be telling us you've been running a non legit copy for who knows how long. From my knowledge Steam keeps it in the cloud. SO I would probably say you're screwed.

If the crack didn't change the save files folder you should find your saves under some profile here
c:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\

 

So after you play bought copy, new profile should be created there and you can just copy files from the cracked profile to legit profile.

Will it work if I move these files to whichever Profile folder the legit one will create?
