Due to Microsoft shutting down Games for Windows Live (I wish they did it right after they launched and spared everybody the headache), Batman Arkham Asylum has been retooled for Steamworks. This is great, but Batman Arkham Asylum no longer recognizes my save. How can I take my old saves into the bright new era of Steam DRM?

  1. Start a new game and make sure the game autosaves (the first autosave is 2 skipped cutscenes into the game); quit the game.
  2. Find your old save file at C:\Users\xxxxxxxx\Documents\Square Enix\Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY\SaveData\########, where xxxxxxxx is your Windows login and ######## is a bunch of random characters, and copy it somewhere.
  3. Download XVI32 or use a different hex editor of your choice.
  4. Open the copied file with XVI32.
  5. In the menu, do Address -> Go to..., make sure the mode is set to hexadecimal, enter $183 in the input box and hit OK.
  6. In the menu, do Edit -> Delete to cursor.
  7. Save the edited file.
  8. Go to your Steam folder, then navigate to userdata\######\35140\remote for the GOTY edition or userdata\######\35019\remote for the regular edition, where ###### is your Steam ID.
  9. Replace the save0.sgd file with the edited save.
  10. Start the game.
