I, too, have a question regarding save games.
I posted a new thread about 24 hours ago about my issue, but that was before reading this thread. And, although my problem is somewhat different, I'm hoping that someone here may have enough knowledge to help me out.
I run W7 Pro, quad core, I7 (860 - 2.80 GHz), 64-bit, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 570 Vid Card. I play TW2 EE. I'm not on Steam with this game - but I've read enough about saving game issues on Steam that I would have turned that off before I started playing (I have, and currently am, playing several games on Steam and am aware of the cloud issues).
First, I'm a fanatic about saving any game when I play. I just don't like where/when the auto saves are done. So, when I finished Part 1 - with probably over 200 manual saves, I made two folders on my hard drive (C:\Mage Guy and C:\Sword guy - I'm playing a mage-based and sword-based character).
I took the last 80 saves from each character and copied them into the appropriate folder - there still would have been close to 120 manual saves in those folders all-together.
Yesterday, I started playing Part 2, starting with the quest to go into the mine and get the Immortelle. In the almost 2 1/2 hours in that mine, I probably did 35 manual saves.
Next time I played, I purchased an item that I later realized I could not wear till Part 3, so I decided to restore an earlier saved game.
It was at this time, that I discovered that there was only one manual save in the save game directory, and that was the one I just did, right before I decided to restore another save. The only other saves in the Documents/.../..../saved game folder were auto saves.
The real screwy thing about all this is, that I then looked at the Sword and Mage Guy folders, and all but one of the manual saves had disappeared. Each of the manual saves in these folders was at the top of the list of saves, not anywhere in the middle or end as they could have been randomly. So, it was the last save in each folder and the only manual save.
I read something earlier in this thread - page 1 I think, about a 100MB limit - is that for all TW2 games or just the games on the Steam cloud?
Thanks if anyone can help. ›››
