I was over the moon when GTA3 came out for Android/iOS. However, I'd really like to be able to open my PC-based saved games on my Android version of GTA 3 and vice-versa. Is this possible?

I've already tried copying 2 *.b files from my Android device (Samsung Galaxy SII if that is relevant) and copying them to the GTA3 User Data folder on a PC install, but when I open the game and look at the list of available saved games, the dates are incorrect (year 5142 for instance). I've not yet tried this the other way around.

    I can't see this working to be honest but I wasn't expecting the PC version to even pick up the Android save. Although the year was wrong did the game load? I'm guessing not...?

  • No, it crashes when it attempts to load and the game bombs out. On having thought about it a bit more, you are probably right that it won't work - the Android version supports saving the current state of the game (such as player's location, vehicles next to the player etc) as part of the pause/resume functionality, so they have probably had to modify the file format to fit that in.

Unfortunately it's not possible.

Like you have mentioned in the comments, the way each of the games are saved has changed. Even if the saving system hadn't have changed I am highly confident it wouldn't of been possible since it's almost like taking a save file from a PS3 and trying to use it on a PC game. They are two completely different platforms.


  • Heh, thanks for clarifying and destroying my dreams :)
