Hi guys I'm new here so I have to learn how this stuff works. I apologize if this is the wrong place but I'm just taking a shot in the dark. Here goes.

I have been using save editor for outfits and dropping cars about 8 months now on my friends key. In 8 months I've never ran into any issues and have been using daily without a hiccup. About 5 or 6 days ago I ran into an issue where suddenly I kept getting loaded into the prolouge rather than Trevor's trailer after dropping 3 or 4 cars and no matter how many times I did the prolouge for a fresh Franklin and lamar save and reset everything for a clean start. I kept running into this issue which made me decide to try a complete un/reinstall of all programs it seemed to have worked but again after 3/4 cars it would just stop working and I would again be stuck loading into prolouge rather than my modded save.
I decided to un/re install again refresh everything removed all back up and file saves etc for a completely fresh start. I just now tried to transfer a modded save and the game loaded me into the prolouge AGAIN. I HAVE LOOKED EVERYWHERE for a solution to this problem and could not even find a link for anything close to what I'm experiencing.
I've tried to message the main face book page for save wizard and tried to contact anyone at x3tfinity with no response.
Is there no fix for this?
I have no idea what caused this to start but since it has it has only gotten worse and I can no longer use the programs my friend and I paid good money for the key and for some reason my slot is only slot not working? I can't fix if I don't know what's wrong and I can't find or seem to get help. Any suggestions? I've tried everything and am about to just give up completely.

Again I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to this sort of thing but have been using the program successfully for around 8 months or so never did anything outside or the norm so I have no Idea what's going wrong. Again I apologize if this is wrong place to post I will be taking time to learn about and find my way around the platform asap. Please help...

Hi there!

Is Autosave turned on?
Messing with other save games (or even the autosave in on itself) can sometimes trigger a corrupted autosave, which the game will always try to load up first. When the game loads a corrupted save you might end up in the first Prologue mission. Maybe that is the case?
I don't believe this is the work of x3tinfinity or the developer of GTA V Save Editor, so I doubt they know what to do in this scenario.
Also, what do you mean that you cannot use Save Wizard anymore?

Hi yes as I am testing to see what's going on with the saves I'm finding I cannot turn off auto save or at least it won't stay off. I think you may be correct I figured it wasn't anything to do with programs because everything seems to be working fine. I was just hoping maybe they might have an idea. It's gotta be the saves, in this case what would be a good fix? I could start a new game and refresh my Franklin and lamar save again but is there another place the corrupted save might exist? I haven't backed anything up in save editor since I cleared cash and made sure to remove all saves from system storage, flash drive, and on my PC. Is there something else I should do that may help?
Post automatically merged:

I think I found the corrupted save in a back up folder in my documents it should have been the last of them.

I recommend deleting your autosave and profile save.
As you've likely noticed, there is a " (xxxx) " beside the GTA save data files on your PS4. This will say either "(Autosave)", "(Backup)" and "(Profile)".
You should delete all files that have these data tags.
I will then recommend you start up a new save from Prologue. Once you gain control of Michael, go to Pause -> Settings -> Saving and Startup -> and set Autosave to Off.
Then play all the way through Prologue and Franklin and Lamar. Once you spawn in Franklin's old house, walk outside and do a quick-save on your phone.
And that should be it! The save file should show up as "Franklin and Lamar" with a %age and no data tag. Quick-saves does not carry data tags, which are safe to use in the Save Editor, and should start up appropriately without you being forced into the Prologue mission again after you restart your game for a repeated glitch attempt :smile:

Also, please keep in mind that clearing your cache (holding L1+R1 in the startup sequence) will turn on Auto-save again, so make sure you always double-check and turn it off again after clearing it!

Well I honestly thought I had it figured out but it seems that even when following the steps provided I was able to load in as Trevor but after pulling one car I saved it deleted the save and put it away for later. Unfortunately when I came back to it I ran into the same problem. I'm not sure what is causing the save to be corrupted like this. It's never happened to me before. Is there something I'm doing or not doing to cause a corrupt save? I'm not backing anything up on save editor and I changed the setting in save wizard so it does not back up a corrupt save but yet when ever put a new save in it seems like its corrupt already. The difference this time is I'm sure the auto save was off when starting and finishing the prolouge so that when saving the game I only had that save. I also made sure to delete the auto save and the back up etc. I watched multiple updated tutorials thinking maybe something in the methods changed. Is there a possibility that my friend in other slot(s) could somehow be effecting my end? Also thank you BTW for such a speedy response I appreciate any help. The info provided has Def helped so far in any case.

So I bought another key and made a new account got rid of everything re installed and started totally fresh. Followed all steps and was still having the same problem. I decided I'd try and do a repair on my file and I'd done this many times as well with no luck but I kept on trying I only now just got a prompt to shut down and reboot after likthe 10th time lol I'm hoping this helped and was the problem. Will let you know.

possible the last game update actually updated the saves
Save Wizard could have removed any extra work the save needs (yes a decrypted ps4 and SaveWizard AdvancedMode GTA V are different)

This could be an issue with your cars just overwriting into the next AoB maybe don't go so crazy with parts or other items that could use data you want to put somewhere else?
Not sure if there is a file limit size for GTA V but I know on BL2 after like 216kb your save would corrupt every time on PS3 or a new glitch we use on BL3 to write our XP OoB to prevent the save from overwriting when leaving an online game.

Yeah, thing is even with everything being reset and all cashes cleared for the next brand new account and key I still cannot get it to work. At first I thought it was the story mode save that was corrupt and the program just wasn't getting a proper thread to download it but after doing the prolouge with the provided steps many times to ensure the requirements are all met I thought maybe the program itself is not working properly for some reason. I thought maybe I deleted something I needed accidentally. Unfortunately as I mentioned earlier even a full Un/reinstall with a new key and account bought/ made today is still getting the same results. On the og slot I share with my friends they are able to use the key just fine and haven't had any issues. I've been learning how to use these programs over the last little while and got pretty good with them but I have a lot to learn. This issue happened very abruptly and I don't even know what's caused it to try to find a fix. I appreciate the input and will take it into consideration. Joping it will be a simple fix . I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually this site seems pretty active and so far people have been very helpful.

if you haven't uninstalled the program yet there should be a log of all the saves you made changes to if you can find the date and time that it made them before they get deleted off of your pc most save editing tools will create a backup folder

Yeah so after some more digging I found that save wizard and save editor were showing up as incompatible software trouble shooting and running on older version of windows (8) still wouldn't work. I assume there had to be missing or corrupt files from a failed windows update?

I just started a complete reset of my PC to factory settings. Also when getting ready for reset in the list of files that were being deleted i had found there was a windows 10 update file at the bottomed of the list. Maybe the corrupt file that caused the issue?

My PC only has 4 gigs of ram and my network connection is mediocre at best so this may take some time. Will keep posted. Again thanks for the help guys.

Okay so just wanted to post an update and list as solved. The hard reset of my computer after some troubleshooting revealed that I infact did have an issue with corrupt / broken windows update that caused the programs to be unusable. After re installing everything and a fresh franlkin and lamar save everything is back to normal. Thank goodness. Only took 6 days lol. Thanks again to all who took the time to help me out. Take care!
