The game will NOT load the SaveData from other profiles...?

  1. I tried saving the Save Data posted under SAVES, and when I copied it to my profile and booted the game, a message appeared on the screen that said "Game save from other profiles cannot be used". Does anyone know a way around this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

  1. apparently not.

    Capcom released patch 1.3, which was supposed to allow saves to be copied, but you need to be using the same system as the one the data was originally saved on.

    I had the same problem, there are more and more games lately that are employing this method.

    Maybe one day they'll see sense, but we wait with baited breath lol

  2. Sorry but it can't work, because the game save data is saved under ur account & under ur registered online id name but it'll work in time in the future we hope for the best..... (^_^)

  3. Mine worked fine but a message kept popping in the upper right corner where you get trophies saying "You Did Not Earn A Trophy", maybe it's their fail safe for copied saves or something, anyway, it is VERY annoying because it never goes away when I play, even more so if I'm playing dual screen, the map gets blocked for the first player.

  6. You will never beable to save a game to a different profile because it would be like duplicating trophies BUT you can transfer it over to another ps3 for the same profile by doing a data transfer although it will wipe the ps3 you are using to switch it over and you might need to delete some of your dlc's which you can get back by going to the psn store and going to downloads in the top right corner, but before you switch data over it wud be wise to deactivate your account which just makes it so you can't download content from that profile on that ps3 because you can only have about 5 downloads on different ps3's per purchase, do this by logging into your account, go to account and deativate, this should be explained when your doing a data transfer

    1) You wont be able to get any trophies
    BUT) You WILL be able to save your progress however...
    First and foremost if you have already played the game on your console you MUST delete the SAVE FILE and THE FILE IN THE "GAME DATA" UTILITY ON YOUR HD..
    Next, copy the save file you want to use from gamefaqs or wherever onto your HD,
    (You should go offline just to be safe)
    If you did it correctly you should be able to play from the save file
    Any questions, send me an email here on Gamefaqs

  10. I downloaded Resident Evil 5 Gold for free as a PS Plus member. To make this short and sweet. You CAN'T use game saves from another profile for this game. The ONLY way this will work is if you fork over $30 and buy the Game Genie which not only will install maxed out money and points into your own original game save, but you can reassign your profile to another players save thus letting you use game saves from this site.

    If anyone has successfully done this and is playing on a NON jailbroken system with the latest 4.31 update, I'd sure love to hear about it because I certainly couldn't do it. Although it'll be hindsight now because I've already bought the Game Genie.

  11. Hi :) I Have Found A Way That The Ps3 Can Load Data From Other Games . Theres A PS3 Hacking Program Called BruteForceSAveDataPS3 . This Program Basically Allows You To Modify Your Saved Games And Will Give You A List Of Saved Games From OTHer USers That Have A Platnium On That Specific Game . Download BruteForce SaveData 4.0 . When You Have This All Installed & Ready To Go , Go To PS3 Save Portal Look For Saved Data You Want And Download It . When Downloaded Click The Right Mouse On The Data And Press Extract Here . After Its Extracted , Put The Data On The Main BruteForce Screen And Press Decrypt All Files . After You Have Decrypted The SAve DAta , Click Right ON The Mouse And Look For " Unlock Save For Any PS3 Profile " Click And Press Encrypt . After You Have Done All Of This , Make sure To Save Whatever You Have Done On to Your USB . Then Just Simply Overwrite Your USB Data On To Your PS3 . If You Have Any Problems Just Simply Reply . :)
