Q: I transfered a GTA save to my PC and back to my memory card using execFTPs and now the game won’t load it.
A: GTA games check all the save for validity, when you transfer it back to the card with execFTPs some file attributes are not set correctly and the game will not load it. My suggestion: Use a commercial product to transfer GTA saves, other methods are too complex and unstable to explain in this news post
Q: How do I change the country region/ID of a save?
A: Open the save up in PS2 Save Builder and change the Root/ID section accordingly to the new ID. Check any files in the save for the old ID and change their names as needed (click on a name then a few seconds later click on it again to edit the name). Save in your chosen format.
