This is a topic discussing steam cloud saving
The only thing I can think about is if your manual save games are from such a early version of TW 2 that they now have become corrupted in some way (In other words, you saved the game then patched it, which caused the save game to be faulty).
Try starting a new game and manually save your game and see if this works.
Alternative you could always try to check your save folder location and see if your manual save files for some reason aren't directed to that specific folder and/or run CCleaner or a similar program and check for some registry errors.
04.05.2013 @ 17:43Alternative you can upload your save file before this event at wikisend and link it and I'll upload it as soon as I've done it.
03.05.2013 @ 18:13Either way is fine, however if you do decide to put it on hold I want you to promise yourself that you will pick the game up again in month X or Y or something and play it for several hours in a row.
This is of course based on my own experience (and a bit on the negative feedback from people in gaming forums) but The Witcher franchise suffers in a bizzare way from being too ambigous, too "deep" and too overwhelming. When you are immersed in the game, these factors make The Witcher franchise one of the best games by today's standard but as it isn't as casual and "brain dead" as many other games you can run into a period where you simply don't feel you want to play it (which is why said retards on the gaming forum state the game as boring and therefore give TW a negative feedback) because you don't have the time to appreciate all the lore, all the npcs and all the hard work CD RED put down with this game.
So in a sense The Witcher suffers from being too adault and only by sitting down, taking a deep breath and just "tackle" the world will you truly be immersed back in the world if you have taken a break from it... This is an adault game not Angry Bird, playing this game now and then when you are on the toilet is not an option.

It's Done, just download the file and have fun continuing the story.
You were over burden from your save file so I removed some standard traps and some leather and picked up the kayran loot (granted you became over burden again by that but I let you figure out youself what you want to keep).
11.04.2013 @ 21:13It's essentially a conflict of interest between the gamer and the protagonist because our view based on experience is not the same as Geralt's. A lot of people have had zero experience with Yennefer, but they've had much experience with Triss (both from TW 1, but more importantly from TW 2), this means that we are more deeply committed to Triss rather than "some random girl" which haven't yet seen the daylight of the witcher gaming-franchise. I feel like those who have experienced Geralt and Yennefer from the novels/books, are more liberal with the notion that Triss remain as a friend and not the love of his life although we've been given an experience that somewhat contradicts this from CD RED since 2007.
Dragon said:1) The entire purpose of the amnesia plot device was to enable the players to have an input on Geralt's identity. Throughout both games, we were given the opportunity to decide the status of his relationship with Triss. Forcing Yennefer on us would contradict the choices made by those players who did decide to pursue Triss, wasting potential character development and diminishing the narrative of the series as a whole for them.
2) Many people, myself included, have not read the books, and therefore feel nothing for Yennefer. On the other hand, we have had two games to become emotionally attached to Triss. Even if Yennefer were to be well introduced in the third game, it would still be three games to one. We shouldn't be forced to settle for a less known character in the games simply because the books say so.
3) TW3 should provide a satisfying conclusion for all - Those of us who do like Triss and chose her in TW1/2 would essentially be left with a disjointed experience. We shouldn't have to play the games in a specific way to get a satisfying conclusion that makes sense. CDPR gave us choices, we made those choices, how about following up on them?
4) It would rob the players of one more game changing choice. ›››
It ultimately falls down to how much the gamer want to define Geralt, both as an individual and the actions he makes. We've never previously actually experienced a Geralt in where our actions hold that major significance on Geralt personal life (sure we have established who to save and kill and so on, but that is) and I feel it would be poor character development if we're to tamper how we please now at this last game of the trilogy when nothing have been done (at least in a proper way) previously. Geralt have been a very well scripted character from the start and although I, at least partially would support a romance with Triss in TW 3 it feels out of place to now when everything is coming to an end to begin to "woo" another woman especially when he now no longer have amnesia. The problem lies that no previous game have really touched the subject of Geralt as having a girlfriend/woman in any proper way. Yes it was mentioned in TW 1 and it continues to be mentioned in TW 2, but neither of the games really dealt with this in the game or gave the players the confirmation/satisfaction of deciding Geralt's woman. Writing a letter in TW 1 is a poor arse excuse and giving a short dialogue in TW 2 when we then see no outcome, no reaction to our action, no conclusion which makes the decisions (which was poorly and shallowly done to begin with) really hard to actually take seriously (in fact if a player skip the dialogue in the elven bath, you've pretty much removed everything TW 2 addressed on the relationship between Triss and Geralt) and then to top it all of, someone interferes with the possibility we get to actually see the outcome which doesn't make things much better... Also a really important thing to bear in mind is that it would make the main story much weaker in order to satisfy how the player wants to role-play Geralt as he now has less reasons to actually travel around the world to find the people he loves... Do we really want another open world game with character customization and no story? Wasn't Skyrim enough?
If we then retract to my previous text addressing the difference between gaming experience over character experience from the books, I can for example state the following... We have seen that Triss have been sneaking around behind our back since TW 1 and our suspicions towards her could be further strengthen in TW 2 if we choose not to believe her, does this mean we should be placed in a scenario where we actually kill her or get rid of her in another way? If we assume that everything previous from the books is irrelevant (in some regards) to the player (which we should cause otherwise we contradict our beliefs regarding Yennefer) we should also have a more bitter view towards Triss and then all our previous emotions and experiences towards her which we've had before the amnesia might ultimately not matter anymore as we believe her to only manipulate Geralt for her own good, with-holding information etc. Now I don't say we should look at Triss in that way, but the only real positive emotions we've had from previous experience with Triss is the sex-cards/romance in TW 1 (which was practically irrelevant to define a major choice like this one) and in the prologue/act 1 in TW 2. Yes we run head over heel to save her (as Geralt would do with all his friends) but even so he is still sceptical if she had used him in the end and can even choose not to help her out when it ultimately matters to save/help another person he has known far less than Triss. Would we really give the player this sort of power to define Geralt because if we are 100% honest that's actually an option I feel several people would feel/want. This wrap nicely up point 3 and 4 on why player choices aren't always the best things. In some way getting rid of Triss would make sense based on previous games and would allow people to further role-play Geralt as a person not trusting her and ultimately getting fed up with her bullshit, manipulations and lies. However this, is still not a very pleasing conclusion between the two and not something that I at least would believe to be beneficial to the game, the franchise or the lore as a whole.
Geralt's relationship with Triss hasn't been perfect in neither games, it's filled with strong emotions (both positive and negative) and she has remained the one character that Geralt defines as a close friend that yet have been (seemingly) working behind his back and not being completely honest... And if we want a complex and deep protagonist where we gamers can make major decisions (not just the developer) these things should also matter, not just the good times he had with her in the military camp and the elven bath.
As a conclusion I find it that people react way too negatively on this decision as it isn't really that important to begin with. We have already had the time to establish our/Geralt's opinions about Triss and the relationship they have and that's what really matters, not which woman he states as the love of his life. Sure it can come as a backlash that we wanted Triss and Geralt to end up together and now they remain as friends, but the definition on their relationship is not what's really important, what's important is that we can show Triss how much/little she means to us based on our actions and hopefully we can see how it then effects the relationship in TW 3.
