Hi everyone, I play on alpha 9, when i begun my first game everything worked well, i could save whenever i want.
But suddenly, after 2-3 hours, the saving didn’t want to work anymore. Trying to overwrite or create a new save just show the “Saving” on the screen for one second, and disappears, the actual save didn’t change. Activating auto-save has the same result, after 5 minutes nothing, the game just don’t wanna save any more.
Reset the game is my only option, but it really bothers me because nothing can show you that the saving stop working ingame, and the spacing between bugs is reduced to as my game advances, which makes it quickly unplayable.
If someone already encounter this problem, or have a solution, and sorry for my bad english.
(Release 453 x32 build)
I am currently unable to save my game… more than once?.. This bug is really confusing as it only allows me to save my game one time. When I try to create a new save or override my current one, it just shows the “Saving…” message for about .5 of a second and then it disappears and doesn’t save. Combine this with occasional crashes and you can bet I’m in for a frustrating experience…
I have exactly the same problem you are, with like… everything exactly the same. I’m sorry I can’t provide any help but I know what you’re dealing with.
Just save very often, as the bug seems to be random. Try not to use the console or overload the AI with too many jobs/buildings… other than that I don’t know. If it happens at the very start of a game, save every minute or so. If that’s not enough, save twice in a row and reload the most current. This bug also seems to remove auto-save games and cause the game not to auto-save.
@Relyss I’ve been having the same issue. Though I’ve also been running Stonehearth on OSX using Wine (It actually works with better performance than I get on Windows ) so I simply decided not to complain. However as the issue was evident with someone else I decided to install a copy of Windows and test. So after a little digging these are my results so far.
When trying to create a new save the “Saving…” text flashes and Stonehearth creates a save folder, but it leaves it empty . Nuking all directories didn’t change anything. Bug seems to happen somewhere after the beginning of the game. It seems to happen as a result of certain actions, so far I’ve found it while mining, removing berry bushes, looting and building. However deleting all broken save folder and then continuing from the latest working one seems to work.
