    Default [TUT] How to manually convert PC savegames to Xbox savegames

    Since my program is apparently broken, I'm going to tell you how to convert them manually. Before attempting this, you need to have a basic understanding of your hex editor.

    First: Download a save.

    Then, rip a xbox save off of your harddrive.

    Open them both up in hex. Make a new file, as well.

    Now, copy the bytes from 0x0000 to 0xD000, but be sure to stop right before the FO3SAVEGAME text. Paste that in the new file.

    At offset 0x412, there is the filename as Fallout reads it. Change it to match your file. (This is what I didn't do in the program, prob why it errored all the other saves)

    At offset 0xC029 and 0xC02C there are two 0x2 byte numbers that represent this equation:
    Filesize in bytes(integer) / 4096
    Rounded up, then converted to hex. Change those to fit.

    At offset 0xC034, there is a 0x4 byte number, that number is the file size of the .fos file you are converting, in hex. Change that accordingly.

    Now, copy paste the PC savegame into the end of the new file.

    At offset 0xB6000, add 0x4000 bytes of null padding (00 bytes)

    Now, from the end of that null padding, go 0xAA000 bytes ahead and add 0x2000 bytes of null padding. From the end of that null padding, go ahead 0xAA000 ect ect until you can't go 0xAA000 bytes ahead anymore.

    Now, add null bytes to round the file off to the nearest 0x1000, then add another 0x1000 bytes.

    Run through the Hash Bloc Calc, resign, and inject. Be sure to name it correctly as well. THE FILENAME MUST BE:
    Only 37 chars (not including the .fxs extension)
    In this format:
    Save 123 - Nathan The Capital Wasteland 00.17.28
    There are 2 spaces in between the name and location, and between the location and play time.

    CONGRATULATIONS you have converted a savegame. Now go have fun pwning some super mutant behemoths inside of the alien spaceship, or what have you.

    Took me forever to figure out, lol. So many things to fix. So easy to screw up.

    Awesome. I love you, and I just discovered an extra goal for tomorrow (after I've done editing my novel for the day :| ).

    Thanks Nateleroux, seriously. I'd considered asking you to do this, but I wasn't sure how many steps were involved, and you'd already put a lot of effort into the program you made. I'll give it a go, and will leave word of whether or not I'm successful. Thanks again. :)

    Have fun. Oh, if something is wrong with this guide, I will fix it, cause I might have missed something. Doubt it though. But remember, this method can be used for any game content.

    ok guys i need a some help as i am pretty much a dumbass when it comes to most things hex so could some one clear this part up a bit for me? (At offset 0xC029 and 0xC02C there are two 0x2 byte numbers that represent this equation:
    Filesize in bytes(integer) / 4096
    Rounded up, then converted to hex. Change those to fit.
