Is there no way of backing up your career? Where is the file directory?

I tried to load a game from my second patrol and it wiped out that whole patrol and the first one before it.

Very unhappy.

Hasn't it said to you that it will erase all the save behind the one you're about to open? Have you clicked yes? I hope you are unhappy about yourself. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

The saves can be found in my documents -> SH3.

Same thing happend to me! I was on 3rd patrol caching convoy, so I saved to be sure. Next time I wanted to load it I couldn't find my saves. .. New carrier? Pffff....

Oh, so it isn't just me then...

No, I am aware of the "all saves after this one are erased" feature - this time it erased the whole career up to that point - that would be the save before that one, wouldn't it?

My career was wiped too week or so ago. Very annoying, it wasn't because I deleted it. Did you ever hit the "Abandon Career" option?

Indeed, try exiting while submerged or after you die.

It is so that it doesn't really metter sometimes for this function. My current patrol was nr.3

Then I saved it. And after it exit the game. Afterall, then i was back in game i couldn't find my save "caravan 2" only the one save before - "caravan aproaching" and after - "begin in base patrol 4". So i though it is mistake and my save is somethere but I couldn't just see it. I deleted save before "caravan approaching" and !bam! no more saves. Zero, null, nana... 0
