So I was looking online for a save for the PC version so I could do a speed run, and I found out about the savedata.dat file. I downloaded a couple of saves, and put it in my directory for Resident Evil 4. It was plainly named SaveData.dat, but when I launch the game, it's still the same data from before. I'm not sure what's causing this, anyone have some ideas?
