Save file nonsense

Discussion in 'Bug Reports' started by Vandigans, Feb 21, 2017.

  1. So I too had crashes to desktop on starting a new game, but I downloaded a 100% complete save for GOH online and playing that save had no problems. I want to be able to finish the story myself, so I wanted to know if anyone could start a new game, save it just at the start, and upload that save file for me?
     
  2. It seems save files don't work like that, and I didn't see save file unarchivators anywhere. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
     
  3. Saves do work like that but it would require a little bit of editing of the remotecache.vdf file.

    Attached are starting saves for Gat Out of Hell, they go in the same folder as the Saints Row IV saves. (Steam userdata "206420". You'll need to edit the remotecache.vdf file to point at the attached files.)

    Any file prefixed with srg is for Gat Out Of Hell.

    You may need to disable Steam's cloud saving (and possibly run Steam offline initially).

    Good luck.

  4. (There seems to be a problem right now with Gat Out of Hell not being able to read Saints Row IV's save to import the "Boss" properly due to a change in SRIV's save file format. Since Volition didn't code Gat Out of Hell I have no idea if it will ever be fixed.)

    According to http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Saints_Row:_Gat_out_of_Hell there is also an issue if your Steam library is on a drive other than C:.
