Loading "clear data" from previous/demo verisons

Loading "clear data" from previous/demo verisons
In several games there are benefits from loading @clear [email protected] save games from previous complete series(or completing demo version).
So question is how to do that....

For example we got ULUS-XXXX(previous clear data) and ULUS-YYYY(from that i need load it)

-I've tried just put into ULUS-YYYY folder ULUS-XXXX data - no result

- Copy ULUS-XXXX just in ppsspp\memstick\PSP\SAVEDATA - no result

HELP!!!!! Maybe some1 got a point?

P.s. sure i load my region one and have try check/uncheck "Respect FPU ronding"

RE: Loading "clear data" from previous/demo verisons
If a game supports something like that it detects the save from original savedata folder when you choose to use that feature in-game. You can activate ppsspp log and after trying to import previous game/demo save should see where the game seeks the save(in case you put it to wrong folder) and maybe figure out why it fails. Some games for example to unlock something are not interested in game progress saves at all and only check much smaller system data which if you downloaded save from the net might not even be there.

The only reason to ever rename saves is to try loading a save from different region which might work for some games, but will never work for many others.

Another thing to consider even if we put problematic games aside - as [Unknown] explained here saves from games hacked to run on older firmware will not work. Newer game will probably not detect or not be able to read a save from older hacked game properly, so you will need to make new save from original unmodified copy of the older game/demo to be able to use such feature.

"Respect FPU rounding" exists only for compatibility of GE(and potentially few other games) saves made on old ppsspp versions. To use it you have to disable it to load a save in the original game, then re-enable the setting and save - after which you can forget about it. If you are somewhat new to ppsspp and never played on builds before that option was added there is no reason to ever disable it as doing so will break some games and cause incompatibility with real hardware.

RE: Loading "clear data" from previous/demo verisons
Another thing to be aware of is regions. For example, if you play the EU demo and beat it, and then get the US game and try to lead the demo data... it probably won't work. Because it probably only supports the US demo.

This also goes for translations, double. If the demo was JP and you played it translated to CN, and then try to play either the JP or CN full version, both may likely not be able to load the demo data - even the JP version. Translation projects sometimes have to modify the way the demo saves to make things work properly (like saving your name correctly or the items you have or etc.)

RE: Loading "clear data" from previous/demo verisons
Game use "The Memory Stick Duo" to detect save from demo version.
If i place directly files from demo version into folder with game - it'll be error 80110307.
If i delete folder. Demofolder doesn't seems to visible(message "data file not found, create new data?")

As for log(debug/log console) how i can see where it looks for a save?
......here my log...seems i cant post pictures yet delete one "/"
Code:

RE: Loading "clear data" from previous/demo verisons
That log is pretty clear and looks like it was done after loading game save right after booting.
By your description to me it kind of looks like you're deleting/moving not save of any demo, but save of the game you're trying to play(what is it anyway?), and the log also shows just game booting normally and loading it's own system data. Also the message you had after deleting "demo save" was clearly asking to create it's own system data(which you deleted). It doesn't seem to do anything related to some previous game/demo data at least the log doesn't show it.

So maybe you are just confused and don't know how it should work, games usually give you an option for things like that, I can't remember any example of game just searching for such data automatically right after booting, it's usually in main menu, when starting new game or even through some menus in-game.
Anyway if your game is different and you know how it should work while it doesn't, you could search for the game's thread on our forum and read maybe someone had that problem before, we keep 1 thread per game as a rule, so all problems and solutions people had are pretty easy to find.


On a side note, don't worry about not being able to directly post links, this is just our anti spam feature, few posts more and it'll automatically unlock.
