Games for Windows live gamesave > Steam game?

#1 Edited by ltcoljaxson (1188 posts) -

I was wondering if anyone knows if my GFWL gamesave of Fallout 3 can be transferred to the Steam version of Fallout 3 if I buy it? I've tried adding my disc version of the game to my computer, but it doesn't accept the code on Steam - I'm moving away from using discs for my games library so Steam is preferable.

If someone at least knows what the gamesave would be called for Fallout 3 in the programs folder?

*Edit: Or does the Steam version connect through GFWL?

Are you buying this again just so its in your steam library?

Fallout 3 on Steam still uses GFWL I think.

Yeah I was just buying it to add to my Steam library, but it also came with the DLC packs so 5 bucks is worth rebuying the whole game. Thanks Thunder, that means the gamesave will work - I think it saves into the same folder I already had too.
