Notes

You will need a pre-existing Shank 2 savegame.sav file in order to proceed. You can find one here. This is not a blank file. However, you will be able to clear its contents should you wish to start a fresh game.
  1. Go to the installation folder.
  2. Make a folder called users
  3. Extract the savegame.sav file in the users folder.
  4. Start the game. To make sure that the game sees an actual save file, select Campaign Mode from the main menu. After choosing a difficulty mode, you should see the level selection screen.
  5. To erase the contents of the save file: select Help & Options in the main menu, then select Clear Save Data.
