  • Copied Skyrim Save File can't Save on other profile draconisthe0ry

    I was playing Skyrim on my brother's PS3 account and I created my own PS3 account so I tried to copy the file from his PS3 account to mine. It worked and I could load the game but it says since the game was created on a different account it can't be saved and the trophies can't be loaded.

    I tried using autosave but it doesn't work. The Save option in the menu is disabled. I'm kinda far in the game and I really don't wanna start over... there has to be a way to do this.

    Is there?

  • The PS3 won't let you because it considers that cheating. You could try calling Playstation and appealing to them for help, but I would just bite the bullet and start a new game.

  • My suggestion would be to download his account onto your PS3 and use that to play the save file. Play offline so both instances of his account aren't online at the same time. This shouldn't effect gameplay because Skyrim doesn't feature online play.

  • Ok. I know it's a little convoluted, but it works. You HAVE to play the saved game from the profile that first saved it.

    Just move it back to the "owner" profile when you want to play it. If you want to get it out of the way when you're done, move it back into the new profile you copied it into to begin with.

    Might as well just leave the game in the profile that originally saved it.

  • you could download bruteforce and change the info of the save to your own, this would make it work for your ps3 or another account.

  • of anything. I'm about 50% through the game and I wanted to invest on the BAWSAQ. So I created a PlayStation network account from my phone. Then I hooked up the Internet and tried to sign in. But apparently someone had already used this account with a different login. So I created a new account on the PS3 and copied my most recent save over. Now I am getting the error message: "You did... assassinations. I would appreciate any help. This is my first time ever playing on a PlayStation. I usually play PC games. I have enough knowledge that if I need to edit the save game file on my my computer

  • I had two profiles with Scott Pilgrim save data before I lost my first PS3, which I (thought I) restored to my new PS3 via a backup. However, since the Wallace update, when I go to try and play the game again I only get the option to play as the "Guest" profile, which cannot save data. My main profile (which is connected to a PSN account and owned my old play data) is not accessible at all. I created 2 new profiles and these profiles show up alongside Guest (and presumably can actually save their data). Is there any way to allow my main account to create save data for this game again

  • When Batman Arkham City first came out, I bought it for PS3 and beat the game while finishing a few extra side missions. Since then, I've gotten rid of my PS3 copy and got a steam version. I still have the saved file on my PS3. I wanted to know if I could somehow transfer my game saves from my PS3 to my steam account?

  • I am playing Need For Speed: Most Wanted 2012 on my PS3. However, I want to change the account to which the PS3 is linked. When I try to do this from Settings ---> Account Management ---> Account.... (Atleast, I think I am, cause I can see that I'm connected to PSN in the XMB menu and I can play multiplayer, which means that I must be connected to the EA servers. How do I change my account and can someone clarify this error? EDIT: I am NOT reluctant to delete my game data or save data. (I haven't made it far into the game)

  • the pattern depend on the save file the Pok√©mon was hatched in or is it already set when the Egg is created? Example: I'll add an example to illustrate what I mean: Let's say my save file yields the Meadow pattern and I have a friend whose save file yields the Continental pattern. In my game, I breed a Scatterbug, get the Egg, and trade it to said friend. My friend then proceeds to hatch the Egg...Prerequisites: So we know Vivillon's pattern depends on the geographical location set on the 3DS when the game was started. Once a save file exists, it will always yield the same Vivillon pattern

  • the issue a bit, but before I invest more time I just wanted to see if anyone else was experiencing the same issue. It is not a permissions problem. Apparently a 'current' save game file is always maintained, and when the player wants to save the game the current file is copied to the new save game (e.g. save1). I think the 'current' save file is created, but never successfully copied. I am also... well on my Fedora 14 x64 system. However, I am experiencing a game-breaking bug with the latest build: http://jdolan.dyndns.org/trac/wiki/AprQ2 Saving games simply does not work! I go to save my game

  • I learned that you could transfer a PC Skyrim save to Xbox 360 by simply changing the .ess extension to .dat then put the dat file inside the game shell using Modio. When I do that and try to load the transferred save the 360 says the disc needs to be cleaned. This only happens when I try to load the modded saves – if I create a new game all is fine. When I change the extension I simply rename filename.ess to filename.dat via right-clicking – am I doing something wrong? the only issue i can immediately see... is the characters names were different

  • I'm trying to play Skyrim on my PS3 but since it said I have to press the "X" button to go to the main menu it doesn't work,even when it worked my controller won't listen to me because it just made me walk into a wall. So I pressed the start button and it started working again. But then when I tried to press "O" it wouldn't go back into the game. BUT it only happens on skyrim and sometimes works for a amount of time only.

  • After experiencing difficulties with a stuck loading screen in Skyrim, I had to force my PS3 to shut down. Thankfully my saved file wasn't completely screwed up in the process. But after I loaded my save game, I travelled to Whiterun to get some ingredients from Arcadia. Once I interacted with her, I was shocked to hear her say "Maybe a hardy Nord like you doesn't need a cure-all, hmm? What about an invisibility potion?" This isn't right. I am a Breton. I really hope this doesn't have anything to do with corruption in my save file. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced
