Unable to save the Game

Hello!

I know it's been rather quiet in regards of AoD, but I started playing it again in order to get screenshots for WikiRaider. The problem is that I can't save the game. When I try to do so, it says that the game was saved, but when I try to load the game - there's nothing! 8|

I've recently re-installed the game to my computer, patched it with the patches 42 and 52, and tried to use patched savegames. But the savegames don't appear to the Load Game menu either.

Any ideas what to do?

What system are you playing on? It might be a problem with the newer Windows (Vista and above) version, where the game can't write into the folder where the game was installed. Starting it as Administrator might work.

I'm playing on Windows XP, and I ran the Tomb Raider Update thingy that updates all the TRs from TRI to TRAOD. How do I start it as an Adminstrator? :shy:

In Windows XP you should not have that particular problem since you are probably already an Administrator. ;-)

I don't trust those kind of programmes that claim to do all the updates for you. I always download the patches from the servers and install them manually. This way I'm sure what version I play.

I don't know what the problem might be, but you should check if the folder "C:\Program Files\Eidos Interactive\TRAOD\SaveGame" (or whatever it is called on your computer/language-settings) exists and is writeable. You might want to try and download a savegame http://tombraidergirl.com/tr6/savegames.php and put it in that folder and try to load that. Don't know, maybe then saving might start work, too... ?(

Alright! [hehe]

I've got both the "multipatcher" and the patches individually. Don't know wthat was my logic when I downloaded them, but hey, I'm me! :D

Let's see... Folder exists? Yep. :yepp Is writeable? Hmm... How do you know whether it's writeable or not? :shy:

Now I've done the following: re-installed the game (full installation, of course, like I've done in the past), patched it with the two individual patches (v42 and v52, there are just two patches, right?) and downloaded one savegame from the link above, but when I go to the Load Game menu, there's nothing again. And saving the game still doesn't work. ;(

I think it might be a good time to give up and let someone else take screens of AoD for the Wiki, since there doesn't seem to be a solution. :S

Right click on folder, properties and then I'd have to find a PC with XP, because I forgot... :D

That's strange... Don't know what else you could do...

Alright, I'll right click the folder, properties and see whether there's something that says "Writeable" or something of that sorts. :D

Me neither. ?( But I might get a whole new computer (not because of AoD doesn't save the game! ;-) ) in the near future, so maybe that'd solve the problem. At least it might be worth trying, since my current computer is rather old and it has had numerous of problems in the course of these many years.

Ah, I'd like a new PC, too. Mine is getting old again... Well, no money for that at the moment! :-/

As for your problem, it might just be some kind of AoD glitch, that game is so buggy... Have you tried it without the patches? I think one of these changed the way the game made quick saves, so maybe there's the problems...

My dad has his eyes set on a relatively cheap PC, and he'll just add some parts to it and voilá - a gaming comp! But it's 50/50 whether he'll actually buy it, he's just planning to atm. ;-)

I hadn't heard that before, thanks! :D I'll try that right away - let's see what happens... :chin

EDIT: It works! :happyjump Thank you, Wile E.! :hug Now, off I go to take some screenshots... :-)
