    Is there a way to (maybe an app) that could convert PAL save games to NTSC save games and vice versa?

    tried that, i got a ret - 1 when installing it back.

    I'll give it another go from scratch.


    Edit:
    Yep, still getting ret = -1

    What does that mean again?

    I get no errors when i reinstall the PAL save game file.

    Ok so, when i tried to play the game, it seems that dispite the ret -1 the files have been moved over, and i'm playing my PAL save game on my NTSC.

    Lets hope nothing is messed up.

    It does for world of goo. At least for me.
    Reminds me of some wads that give a 1037 ret error but still work. *Cough* rockband *cough* dlc *cough cough*

    Thanks DeadlyFoez, worked like a charm with FFIV the after years (NTSC Save to PAL) - despite of the ret=-1 error.
