GFWL derp.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
It's not all that bad until it comes to the game saves! I have all the game saves on a different drive and I decided i will play some Batman, GTA4, Street Fighter and some other games. Turns out that when I re install Batman so that I can play it form my primary drive, that even tho I copied all my saves to the right places it still doesn't work! (the saves)

I Did some Googling around and this Problem was never fixed!
Yes I was aware of this issue from a long time ago, i just figured M$ would've done something about by now.

There should be some sort of Petition on this,unless M$ completely ignores its PC gamers, in which we can actually use our saves from the servers kind of how Steam Does it.
Edit: this might have been on the rant section

GFWL games create a new save folder every time you install. Simply start a new game, save it, locate the new save folder (numbered differently), and copy your old save into that folder. I've been doing that for over a year with no problems.

Dangit, you made me get out of bed to type this (lol).

Alright, here's how it works. Every time you install a GFWL game it creates a folder just like the one you see in your picture only when you have saved a game. However, every single time you save a game after a reinstall, the folder name changes. Yours is like e10101 something, but when you start a new game and save it, the folder will be named, well, anything similar e103010220 (etc.).

Once you have started a game such as Batman, Street Fighter IV, or any other GFWL title, create a new game and save the game the first chance you get. Once the folder is created, simply copy your old save file - NOT THE OLD FOLDER - to the new folder that was created with your 'dummy' save. Start your game and voila. I have done this with both titles and still have my saves active today.
