This might not be the right area for a GTA topic but ever since I moved on from Vista I cannot save nor even run GTA IV anymore since it requires you to use the now defunct Windows Live which means you will have to get Xliveless or someone elses savegame.

What I was wondering about was if it were possible to replace what made the game to not work (it does not work in linux nor windows for me ever since) with a custom in-game only save feature that you don´t need to worry about ending up non-working.

If there is already mods that does exactly like this (just the savegame feature) in existance, please tell me about it.
In need of fixing small things on mods? You´re welcome!

on the forum page where you get the files it has notes on savegames:

Additional notes on savefiles:
* savefiles are now located in the folder:
(for Windows Vista) %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames\
(for Windows XP) %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames\
NOTE: don't forget to copy savegames to the new location

For everyone whose save files won't work anymore.
