So I downloaded some codebreaker save files, I tried using them in Codebreaker 9.2 but the save DOES NOT show up in the day 1 files when I select "Day 1". Cheats for other games show up, but not the cbs file for the save.

I Google search tells me to use the PS2 save builder, but I cannot figure it out :(

I opened the cbs file but the ONLY option that I have is to save it to other formats. I have no clue what format to save it as. All the options look like cheat device options, there is NO option to export it as a regular save :(

I have the same issue with a sps file. No option to export it to a format that the PS2 recognizes :(

I have Free McBoot and PS2 save builder 0.8

What do I need to do?

After opening your save in a supported unofficial format that combines all the contents in 1 file, you can see its contents in the main window (there will always be a file named after the titleid, at least in its first characters, as well as an icon.sys file holding the name/attributes/names of actual icon files) - you have to export those files one at a time by right clicking them, and that's more or less* your save in the official format as stored on memory card, and as copy/pasteable in wLaunchElf

* some attributes will be lost, when loose files are stored outside a PS2 memory card; however most (not 100%) of titles don't care

It did not automatically create a folder and I do not know what file to name it after:

These are the files in the save:

BASLUS-20483SD4
icon.sys
sd4.ico


The first one is NOT a folder (according to Windows)

Put all 3 files inside a folder called BASLUS-20483SD4 and copy that (going through USB, RadHostClient, or whatever) to the root of the memory card, so that you end up with:

mc?:/BASLUS-20483SD4/BASLUS-20483SD4
mc?:/BASLUS-20483SD4/icon.sys
mc?:/BASLUS-20483SD4/sd4.ico

It is NOT working!!! I was successfully able to copy the folder in ulaunchelf but I am UNABLE to paste it into my memory card!!! Paste is ALWAYS grayed out!!!

How do I get it to paste the folders???

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Nothing? Not going to help me further? Either I got some false information so you ditched the topic when I said that it did not work or I stumped you

Calm down, please... this is a public forum and rushing never helps (in fact, it's possibly destructive) while problem solving, and certainly doesn't attract people willing to constructively contribute!

If you can't paste, it's not due to an issue with the files or their naming - the memory card's filesystem doesn't care - but something at a different level

Are you pressing R1 while inside the memory card (ie not just pointing at mc0 or mc1)?
Which source are you using? (I've only personally tried an usb drive, which appears as "mass")

I tried pressing R1 while in the memory card and outside of the memory card with the memory card highlighted, Paste is grayed out in both.

My source is a flash drive and it appears as "mass" as well


It does not allow me to even paste the folders to another directory on my flash drive either. Paste is grayed out literally EVERYWHERE!! :(

Hello.:)

May I suggest you something please ?

Maybe it has more sense you UPLOAD/ATTACH here one of your non working Cheats that we can see and check it for you if they are ok or not.That maybe helps you more.

Thank you.:)
