The online save database project is part of Apollo Save Tool:


Exporting a save

To start, I’ll assume you already have the latest version of Apollo installed. You’ll also need a USB drive (FAT32) connected to your PS3 to save the exported .zip file.


  • Within the app, browse your HDD/USB saves
  • Select the save-game you want to export
  • From the options, select Export save game to Zip
  • Next, select to which USB port you want to save (USB 0 or 1).
  • Wait for the .zip export file to be generated.

If everything went well, you’ll have the exported .zip file ready on your USB storage device here: /PS3/EXPORT/XXXXXXXX.zip

In the EXPORT folder you’ll also find a saves.txt file, listing all exported .zips with their Title-IDs and the save-game names.

Uploading a save

To upload the zipped save file and share it with the community:

The simple way is to create a GitHub issue with the provided template, then you can write down the save description and upload the Zip file directly there (just drag&drop the .zip): https://github.com/bucanero/apollo-saves/issues/new/choose


If you don’t know about GitHub (forks, pull requests, etc.), don’t worry. Just upload the .zip file you created to Mediafire or any other file-sharing service, then just send me a message here with the link and information/description so I can add it.


Database structure

The database structure is simple:

  • Each game has a folder, named with the TITLE-ID. (e.g. BLUS12345)
  • game saves are stored in .zip files inside the game’s TITLE ID folder.
  • The Zip filename must be XXXXXXXX.zip, where X can be a number from 0 to 9. (.zip extension lowercase).
  • The Zip file must contain the save-game folder and data. (e.g. MYGAME-DATA/*)
  • Each folder has a saves.txt file that lists the available saves, with the description.
  • On the root, a file games.txt lists all the games/title-id’s available.

Note: if the explanation is a bit confusing, please browse the database and it should be self-explanatory.

Uploading a save by pull request

If you’re an advanced GitHub user, you can also:

  • Fork the project https://github.com/bucanero/apollo-saves
  • Add your save 12345678.zip to the BLES00000 folder
  • Edit saves.txt in the folder, adding 12345678.zip with a short description
  • Submit the changes with a Pull Request
  • Then I’ll merge the changes and the saves will be available to every user.
