Modifying Final Fantasy VIII (FF8) PSN saves

June 14th, 2010 5 comments

Recently I made a rather big mistake in buying the gimped PAL version of FF8 on PSN.  After spending 20 or so hours doing a “no level up” challenge, I bought the NA version off the US Playstation Store instead and was desperate for a way to convert my PAL save game over.

After hours of tinkering with the .psv file straight from the PS3, I sadly discovered there’s currently no way to actually do this, as the PS3 puts some kind of protection on it’s PS1 saves which prevents modifying them directly. 

Allow me to repeat.  There is currently no known way to edit a .PSV file and re upload to your PS3.  Your PS3 will treat it as corrupted data due to some checksums put on the file.  Hence the need for this guide.

Instead, I found another way, which was to use the PSP to fix up the save before copying it over to the PS3.

While I wasn’t able to convert my save over, I was able to get the next best thing, which was to hack up a saved game with all my previous items on it.  However, if you do know how to convert PS1 saved games between regions, then this guide can also be used.

Here’s what you need for this:
