# Start the game and make as many save games as there were earlier and leave them 0% complete.
 
# Backup <code>{{p|steam}}\userdata\{{p|uid}}\200260\remote</code>
 
# Open folder, GFWL version saves should have your GFWL nickname as prefix like GFWLnick-save#.sgd
 
# Open first GFWLnick-save#.sgd ''(for example GFWLnick-save0.sgd for first slot save file)'' with your chosen HEX editor. Search for hex value <code>00 00 00 03 00</code>.
 
# Now select everything '''before''' that value and delete. [http://i.imgur.com/lGQ3Dc8.jpg Part 1] [http://i.imgur.com/JaeBHy3.jpg Part 2]
 
# Remove <code>GFWLnick-</code> from filename and overwrite the files without prefix. '''do not overwrite the original file'''!
 
# Repeat the steps for all the files. If all gone well you should be able to use old save files again.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/200260/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (200260) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
