As you may all notice, some save files do not convert to PS3, even if they ported from there in the first place.
This has been a known fact for quite some time and we have been waiting for a silent release as to not delay the surprises in mid Feb 2013.
DEREKTROTTER has jumped the gun and put the PS3 DLC and PS3 update at risk, by releasing the GUI for "FLAT_Z's PFDTOOL tool".
This is the kind of stuff that happens on the PSP scene and exploitable games get pulled by the PSN STORE. (same case scenario)
The issue in regards to the "Certain saves" issue is:
You are all using SKYRIM PC Version 22.214.171.124.7 to modify the game....(mainly STEAM players are affected, torrent players can just use a lower version;))
the PS3 can only handle save files created up to and including SKYRIM PC Version 126.96.36.199.6
in order to currently, successfully port to and from the ps3, using "FLAT_Z's PFDTOOL tool" you must use skyrim 1.0 - 1.7 ONLY
SKYRIM Version 1.0-1.5 can interchange perfectly between all consoles as long as you use change the header (not 1.6/1.7/1.8)
SKYRIM Version 1.6-1.7 can interchange perfectly between all consoles as long as you use change the header (not 1.0-1.5/1.8)
SKYRIM Version 1.8 does not exist on the PS3 yet so the ps3 can not read a 1.8 pc file. (only 1.8 is compatible)
for example, i have a skyrim ps3 disc (never updated), but i want to modify it to allow some quest fixes.
you port to pc......you must then use skyrim PC update 1.7 only.
save the game and return to the ps3
then you must update to the ps3 skyrim update 1.6/2.05 (which is skyrim PC update 1.7).......dont ask why it was labeled as such.
then you can play successfully :D
I have tested the 1.8 conversions from (ps3 1.8) to (pc 1.8) to (ps3 1.8) and rest assured everything looks great ^_^, everyone will need to be patient a little longer for the release.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask, but Feb 2013 will be a great month for SKYRIM ;)

seifer69er you are amazing :love:
But the game is |..| (this close) to having the save file restructured and releasing that savefile structure it in the 1.8 OFW update.
This would make it so that it is incompatible to port pc to ps3 or vice versa ^_^
it also means more unnecessary work for the contributors at uesp.net

and the end of the long awaited 1.8 update and mods on ps3 (for porters)
and another lengthy wait for ps3 players.
Fingers crossed, February delivers from SONY, BETHESDA and seifer69er ;)
so what version do i need to get in order to fix the bugs in my ps3 skyrim save ?
Here you go :D
