Hi DEREKTROTTER, and everyone else!
I love this utility that you have created, and the concept that allows me the possibility to fix my Skyrim save so I can finally finish the game, but there seems to be one little problem. I can't load any of my PS3 saves. I have red over the directions about 200 times and have tried a lot of different things so let me try to explain it all
First, I got the tools, decrypted the save, verified with hex editor, copied to Skyrim save location on my PC, and renamed it (including the file extension) Then I started Skyrim on my PC, went to the loading screen, saw my save, verified the name, level and location matched the PS3, and tried to load the file. Skyrim crashed to desktop with no error in less than 2 seconds.
After several frustration hours of this and trying countless PS3 saves, I created a new save file on my PC. I renamed it and repackaged it into the PS3 file, re-encrypted it, and loaded it on the PS3. THIS WORKED GREAT!
But the problem remains, I cannot get my save from the PS3 to load in the PC.
Then I thought, maybe its crashing because the PC didn't have all the DLC like my PS3. I loaded the DLC into the PC, verified the DLC was able to "activate" in the game, and then tried my saves again. Same thing, crashed to desktop in under 2 seconds.
Then I took the save I created on the PC and transferred to the PS3, re-saved it on the PS3, and tried to transfer it back to the PC, same problem; crash to desktop.
Assuming that I'm the only person with this problem (after reading the forums) I figured it was my problem, maybe on the PC. I began troubleshooting the issues from that side, but the problem still plagues me, and whats off about this was that the PC saves will load, just not the converted ones. If i was having the other "loading problems" that I have seen, it fails to load ALL the saves, not just a few.
If you (or anyone else has any more ideas to try, I'd really like to make this work.
I have no problem loading my ps3 game on my computer , but when I put the fixed save back in my ps3 It won't load... It say's that the data is corrupted. How did you manage to take a save from your pc and make it work in your PS3 ? I've tried everything and it's not working.. Maybe you can help me ?

As for my PS3, I have only Dragonborn and Hearthfire DLC. My PC Skyrim has all three. I tried disabling the Dawnguard on the PC but no luck loading the saves. It tries, but CTD after about 1 - 2 seconds.

As for loading the save back to my PS3, I simply took the file, dropped the .ess extension and renamed it to all caps SYS-DATA, placed it back into the save folder from the PS3, and dropped it into the encryption side of the Skyrim Toolkit GUI. Then I copied the entire folder to my USB and transferred it back to my PS3.
Im not sure if it matters of not on the PS3, but make sure the versions match and that you have the same DLC enabled on the PC as you have on the PS3.
Also, I did read another person having a similar problem to yours though, their resolution has something to do with the file extensions not being right. Be sure that you have the proper options set on your PC to remove the extension. Then after you drop it onto the encryption side of the GUI, make sure you get the "encrypted" message and verify with your hex editor that its re-encrypted.
Other than that, I'm not sure if I know what else I would try.
