Well its actually not, i was just playing far cry 2 then i decided to save the game and i was like 55% done with the game and was having fun so then i save it,then the game shuts down for some reason and then i load it up again only to find out my save is not there. then i also tried continue but it said load failed. i found my save file in the far cry 2 file but it just doesnt work. any help would be appreciated. i am angry, cuz i have played like 20 hrs this weekend only to have it go away. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

All I can say is.

You got screwed by Ubisoft!

It happens to all of us mate.
I got the SecuROM error when I got the game.

oh man, what a b***s**** .... what has your securom prob to do with his save game file problem???


but yes Garfield910 it is kinda wired... however, did you never save in that 20 hrs? i hope you know there is F5(quicksave)... logically its to save after every succeeded mission and with 55% in the game that would be allot of save games... if you dint, than its sad and i am sorry, but at least you learned to save in future http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If he's anything like me, you'd assume the game is competent enough not to corrupt your files and just use a single save file! :P

How dare you. Once you assume anything positive about a product you are about to purchase, any liability for problems and errors is shifted to you - serves you right, stupid trustful customer! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Knowing how buggy this game is I save every 15 minutes... but only use 3 save files on a rotational shift.

Maybe someone can send a link to their save file?

Ouch, sorry about that dude. If someone on these forums is about 55% done, maybe they could send you a savegame file, or would you rather just start over?

I guess what we can all learn is to keep more than one savegame file since savegame file corruption is possible.

I feel safe now, each of my saves is to a new file. so at 20% i've got 165 save files.

Waited until you were 55% through to save?

As with anything computer related: back up early, often and multiple copies.

The game starts to take really long to save files if there's too many. I noticed this after my 200th or so save (don't ask how many I don't remember). So since then I've just kept 3 main-rotating save files every 15 minutes or so and any additional ones for when I have to make a big decision in-game which I could go back after I finish the game and take the other path to see what happens.

i didnt wait till 55 to save i was just rewriting the same save file but then that one got corrupted or something but now i've been playing for a few hours and save a lot i have like 30 saves lol but i'll start deleting old ones but not too many cuz i need multiples lol i miss my good weapons though... but i do have the gold ak 47 right now so ya and this play through has actually been more fun cuz i have been using more explosives i was being very conservative last time cuz i didnt know where exactly i'd get more so now its actually more fun! ...IRONY... its like the game though i wasn't playing right

I can't even play it...



Cos I cancelled it due to the SecuRom crap in it. Knew it would be causing issues.
