Hi all

i've been trying (and failing) to save my progress in this game
when i try to save, it tells me there was a problem and that i should check my save folder


from the web, i've found and tried all those:
- my save folder is (as it should be) C:\Users\MyUsername\Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files
- compatibility of the game's .exe is set to XP SP2
- i've added "everyone" to full control permission for the folder "C:\Users\MyUsername\Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files" (and also the game's folder)
- i've added an exception for gata_sa.exe in the "data execution prevention" system


the game runs fine, but it still won't allow me to save my progress...

anyone has an idea?


thanks

First report here. Have you tried running the game as "administrator"? Right click the shortcut to the game, select properties, and then "run as administrator".

thanks for your reply
no luck: i just did the test, it didn't work

the game seems to be ignoring completely the save folder: it won't load old saves either if i put them in there

i really have no idea what's causing that, except that it must be something around all we've tried, some permission somewhere :(
