Why do I now have 1 autosave in a mission instead of 3?

  • Why do I now have 1 autosave in a mission instead of 3? SloppyNick

    I am playing on Classic difficulty, and where I used to have three Autosaves for a mission, I now only have one (i.e. the same file is rewritten each turn, so I can't go back a turn). Did this setting get changed after a game update, or might this be a bug? I did some googling, but didn't find anything.

    (I have read about an issue where once you reach 100 saves, your saves are listed out of order, but this isn't the case, because the one autosave is at the top.)

    EDIT: To clarify, I am not playing Ironman. The game autosaves at the beginning of each turn, and I can go back and reload that game. My problem is that there is only 1 autosave (which gets rewritten each turn), rather than the 3 autosaves that were previously being utilized (so that I could reload up to 3 turns prior).

    The reason I ask is because one autosave is not that useful in a mission; the game is saved at the beginning of my turn, right after one of my guys gets killed. With 2 or 3 autosaves, I can go back to the beginning of the previous turn, and hopefully avoid the doom.

  • I think I figured it out! Just deleted some of the oldest autosaves, and it started creating 3 per mission again! :D try it out!

  • OK, so here's a tricky question for someone with any knowledge in this department. I have been playing with my Xbox on a computer monitor for a long time because I have no Wired Internet in my room (don't own a wireless router).

  • I want to remove most of the old save games from The Witcher that I'm constantly generating while playing (quick saves, autosaves, and manual save points) as I know I won't restart playing from these, and they take quite a lot of space* (20+ MB/save). Removing them from the game is nice because I get to see the thumbnail plus location plus save date, but it's a chore with many of them as you have to select and delete them one by one. So my question is: can I safely remove them from Windows Explorer, or will it raise issues later with the game (if there is for instance some sort of index

In the beginning of the game where you go after the prothean blueprints it is being sabotaged by Dr. Eva, she starts running away and you need to follow her. I started firering on her and I noticed her shield takes damage, but because I have to keep following her her shield recharges.

  • I am playing the multiplayer online on the Xbox. I unlocked a sniper rifle I really like, then when I went back to play the next round the gun I unlocked was gone. I did not pick the gun up off of anybody. I unlocked it when I was promoted. Where did my gun go and how can I get it for each round I play? Will it keep disappearing for one game then show up again for the next?

  • My son is playing "Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure" on an Xbox360. Now - I know the game is supposed to autosave each chapter and in some other particular occasions. However, he got to chapter 8, turned off the game and no saved game was there. I also tried playing a couple of chapters, turning the game off and had everything reset. Before crying foul, I am quite sure there's something wrong with what I do. But I don't really know what: I play normally for a couple of levels, then press Play and choose Exit. When I restart the Adventure mode, I only have one option, to start a new adventure
