Hey, i've got a problem with GTA: San Andreas. You see, i downloaded a 100% complete save file and put it in that save files folder. BUT! Here comes the problem, when i start the game, go to load game and choose the ''Freeway (100% completed save game)'' it loads a NEW game (The airport thing comes up). So the question is: What can i do to fix that? How can i make the save file work?!

PS I got Windows Vista if you wonder, i had this problem too on other computer that got XP

Have you downgraded it to version 1 first?

Go on SA, and in the bottom right corner of the menu, it should tell you.

EDIT: I checked, it's V2

BTW: Does the downgrade infect the game? I mean make it worse?

No, it turns it into V1, which is the version you need. :P

No, the downgrader does not affect the game, it just allows you to downgrade to V1.

Ermm...

I don't think so. There's only a V2 to V1 downgrader AFAIK.

Maybe you can try the V2 downgrader, see if it works. There's a link above, just scroll up.

Well, I'm not supposed to say this, but you'd have to replace the V3 exe with the V1 exe.
