After finishing GTA IV on my 360 i now got it on PC( i love modding e.t.c) i don't want to have to play the game from start to finish!..what can i do to get a finished save file and replace it with mine??

I don't think there would be anyway for that but I can give you my savegame, it is on Ray's missions

Edit: 40% completed

i was reading a tutorial on how to do it but it was very badly written and i couldn't understand a word

Here's a 100% save game download:
and first you need XLiveless:

Download XLiveless, take the xlive.dll file and put it in your root GTA IV directory (if youre not using steam thats C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\)

Then download the save game and put it in C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Local Settings\Application Data\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\ . The folders might be hidden so you have to turn on hidden folders.

Using XLiveless stops multiplayer from connecting. this is the only way to use savegames because normally the saves are stored with your Live account.

i can't get it to work..i did what you said but everytime it just loads a new game!

rappo 07-08-2009 11:31 AM

Did you try loading it manually? Pause the game then go to Load and select the right save game.

endj3 07-08-2009 11:33 AM

yeah i says that there are no save games!

sry for double post..i found what the problem savegames folder was placed somewhere else and i had another one in the original place..i put the save game in the other folder and it worked..thank you very much!

rappo 07-08-2009 12:11 PM

no problem, glad it worked out. where is the other place that you had to put the save game? just in case other people want to know, too

endj3 07-08-2009 12:16 PM

USER/Documents/Rockstar Games/GTA IV

Can you insert Save Games fine with an Offline Account? I cannot for the love of god get GFWL to work so I'm going for an offline account, and I realllllly do noooot want to start all over!

Okay, so I used Xlive.dll and it works fine, but my saves will not load. I put them in the correct folder and everything. When I try to load, I get "Load Failed. Please check hard drive". Am I not able to use my previous saves at all, or am I going to have to go ahead and use the 100% completion save? I don't think it would make a difference though would it?

Okay, the 100% Completion save will not even work? What am I doing wrong here? Am I suppose to add the xlive_d.dll file as well? Or do I need to download the wrapper or what?

rappo 07-20-2009 10:05 PM

you only need to copy over xlive.dll, the other stuff isn't necessary. what folder did you put the savegame in?

Jakkq 07-21-2009 02:36 AM

I put it in the one with all the numbers, not user_invalid. I even started a new game and saved the game on slot 9, and then I moved in my save game files, started the game back up and slot 9 loaded. I tried manually loading every other save, but each read "Load failed. Check hard drive and try again later."

Hi, Rappo!

You seem to know alot about this, so I hope you can help me.

Well, I got Windows 7, so my save files is suppose to be in: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames

And I have put the xlive.dll in the game folder.

I only get "My Pictures" "My music" "Favorites" etc, when i enter Users/username

I dont even see "AppData"

Please, help me!
