    Ok to make it easier for you , download uLaunch 4.12 from my folder(click my name to the left). It will burn to a DVD and you launch it with your Swap Magic DVD.
    So you take your game saves you have or from gamefaqs.com and follow steps 1-9..
    Its not real hard at all. See how it goes and post back or on that thread if you have an issue.

    I am thinking they are different yes. I usually keep the game save the same as the game you have, because the SLUS,SLES files are the same then.

    just try it and see then is all I can suggest.

    If its the uLaunch 4.12 (11mb) uLaunch4.12.7z.001 from my folder, then you just need to extract it. It will then be an ISO file, ready to burn to a DVD, using say imgburn. That is what I use.

    Ok at least thats confirmed as I thought you need the game save to be the same as the game you are playing.
    As for the Suffering Ties that Bind, are you meaning the game itself is in mds and mdf file, or the game save is in that format.
    Do you want to convert it to ISO, just use daemon tools(free) to mount the mdf file, then open imgburn(free), and read the drive its mounted on to save as an ISO. Then you can apply the patch to NTSC or whatever it is you actually want to do.

    Update from gamespot:
    Grand Theft Auto San Andreas in the trilogy pack is the same version as:
    GRAND THEFT AUTO: SAN ANDREAS - SPECIAL EDITION
    I uploaded one of the SE saves to my memory card and it worked.
    Vice City is the only one that is different.

    Now for you other problem, you can get Daemon Tools here:
    http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/download.php?mode=ViewCategory&catid=5
    Install it and you will see a little icon down in your lower left taskbar, it should be a red icon. Mouse over it and it will tell you its Daemon tools.
    Right click it, choose Virtual CD/DVD-ROM, DEVICE 0 [F] NO MEDIA,moount images, then locate your mdf file and load it.
    The drive letter for you may differ than the [F] drive.
    The download imgburn from here:
    http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download and install it.
    Now run imgburn and click Mode at the top, and click read.
    Just below that it says source, choose the drive that we mounted the mdf file on, Now click the disc icon at bottom of imgburn that says read. It should save this to your C:/ drive as an ISO.

    If its just the game save you want of this to be of the same region, its only the game save you need to change the BASLUS..... to be the same as the game. Otherwise to burn this game you can burn the mdf with imgburn. What exactly is it you want to convert? The game itself from PAL to NTSC?
