Unhappy Problem with DOWNLOADED Save Game

I have tried to run a save that I downloaded as I am starting to get stressed on a certain stage, however I put the said file into the default save location and start the game yet it loads from my position that I dont want to be.

So I tried xliveless from here: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=388658

Which makes a new saved game folder in my documents but even with the downloaded save in there it starts the game from the very beginning.

The savegames were copied from C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames\user_e000044bfb437696


C:\Users\<user>\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames

After I reinstalled the xliveless I have started getting a message saying "load failed check hard drive".....which to me is a good thing as at least they saves are being found as they should but its just not loading them.

I would also like to add that there is a new folder thats appeared here: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames

it has the folder name user_1000100010001000 with the only file being ControlMap

I am also running vista and have the OLD patch that was released before the thats out now which makes the game go to 1.5 or something. Mine is called GTAIV_MAINTENANCE_UPDATE_1040_EFIGS.

So what am I doing wrong

Heh dude, I had the same problem and I tried to put that damned savegame for more than two months and finally I managed to do that.
First of all, you still need that XLiveless, but don't give a damn about My Documents, don't put savegame in there. Just go to:
C:\Users\-user-\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames
and delete that "user_1000..." map, just put there savegames and it should be okay as it was for me.
