How to get my savegames back after reinstall?

Question

SARDYNA108

I have reinstalled my windows and copied my GTA IV & EFLC savegames on another disc, now after installing my game back and putting back the savegames on its place the game doesnt seem to see it and it starts a new game, when I try to load it it says there is no saves. Is there any way to make it work?

Can you post the location to where you've put the save games?

Make sure you have xliveless, since I don't believe you can run external save games without it. After you install it, the save games should appear in your game. If they don't, you can go by one of the following two procedures:

 

a) Create the following folder structure in the "My Documents" folder manually

 

 

Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames

 

for both 32 and 64 bit OS versions. For EFLC it should be similar.

 

b) Simply start GTAIV, create a new game from the menu and save the game taking the first opportunity. Now you can look for the folder in "My Documents" and drop any savegames you have there.

 

Bonus suggestion in case you can see your save games in the game but can't load them: install the GTA IV Patch 1.0.4.0. icon14.gif

I've only given you the obvious suggestions that anyone would have given. Such advices are usually the solutions to similar problems to yours. I don't see how is this "bad" advice. At least post the solution of your bug here, so we'll know what can this be fixed by.

I needed to finish first mission, save the game than replace that save with my old ones but only the save file called for example SGTA400 not the whole savegames folder

You solution was actually covered in my first post in this topic. Here:

 

b) Simply start GTAIV, create a new game from the menu and save the game taking the first opportunity. Now you can look for the folder in "My Documents" and drop any savegames you have there.

 

But it's okay now, good to know you fixed it. Have fun. icon14.gif
