For Wii saves, do you need to rename the data.bin or do you leave it as it is?

It depends on what console you're using and what country you live in. Can you be more specific?

can i download a Playstation (PS) game save using a DEXDRIVE to a laptop. After reading descriptions on the internet this seems to indicate that the software is on a floppy disk as it is quite old. Is this true?

Thanks.

You can download it to your laptop sure, but to use it you'll need the software. Just put in a google search for DexDrive Software and Dexplorer or something else will come up. You'll still need to have an old computer to plug in a DexDrive so you can get the actual save to a memory card though...

The OP is a little outdated though.

Hello!!! My User Name is GameQueen1988, nice to meet you all.
I have been playing Tale of the Abyss lately and who like to know if anyone out there knows how to contact a Game Contributor named Majutsuko and ask if (he or she) can make an extra Game Save of the File w/ Asch and switch it to Luke??? I'm more partial to Luke than Asch(sorry...) But, still, if there is someone out there who can contact Majutsuko, and have them contact me via:

Email: Yunaspistols@SBCGlobal.net or on YouTube: GameQueen1988

I would be very appreciative and thankful to any and all who does this for me.

zealot_04 @ hotmail.com is the email he provides in his guides. If you can't reach him that way you're most likely out of luck.

Does anyone know where I can find the criteria used to accept a game save?

I recently submitted a couple saves for a game that was released 3 1/2 years ago and they were rejected with no explanation. The saves had some accomplishments and game progress not included in any of the currently posted game saves.

As suggested on this board, I resubmitted one of them and explained what was distinctive in the saves I submitted, and asked for the reason for rejection. But, I received no further info.

What does Game FAQs look for in a game save? How can I find out why a save was rejected?
