Shenmue III How do i replace savegames on EGS version?

Aug 25, 2019
I recently got Shenmue 3 through Epic Store as it was free a few days ago, i played the first bit until i could save, i gpot a save file from the web cuz im busy at the moment (online school, getting a 3rd doze Moderna etc) so i dont really have time to beat the game, tho i best SM1/2 on pc.

Anyway, i put the downloaded save into the sm3/saved/savegame folder in appdata but the game says "no save data present"

What do i do? whats going on?

Anyone has experienced this, just let me know.

Mery Christmas everyone!!
