View Full Version : Can't access saved game

I started playing the game without signing into "windows live," so my saved game was under a made up username. Then, I see that there is DLC, so I decide to create a windows live account and sign on. Now I can no longer access the saved game data, because every time I start up the game it tells me to sign into windows live and that's just the new profile I created in order to access the DLC (which didn't even work...stupid thing had an error and wouldn't download. Then there's like 923094 possible problems and solutions...why can't I just download an exe file and install? Such a hassle...).

Any ideas how to access my saved game data that isn't associated with a windows live account? Thanks.

p.s. Windows live seems like a huge pain in the ass to get it working. First it had to update itself, now it doesn't do anything...except spew trailers and updates, which I could download using a browser at my leisure without a special program.

You 'might' be able to browse your my docs folder and drop the save file from the offline profile into the online profile.

Not tried it myself, but worth trying i figure.

Thanks for the suggestion. Only problems is that I don't even know where the data is at. Each saved data file is just a random bunch of numbers/letters and there's no difference in file size or anything. For some brilliant reason the title of the file is not the same as the userid I gave it.

Wow, I think what happened is this: I created an offline profile. Then, once I decided to create an online profile, windows live updated itself, and deleted my saved game data. Piece.of.sh1t. I was around 30% done. Sigh...yay for anti-piracy bullsh1t that screws over people who actually pay for the game.

I have just had the same problem, been playing for about 4 hours and udated it and now I cant access my game. I have tried reinstalling it and putting the save file in the online profile and again in an new offline one but it hasn't worked. Its a good game but I don't really want to have to play the start of it all again!

I hope some one can help.

I called Windows Live support. Apparently, we're screwed. The stupid program deletes your offline saves when you update it. What a brilliant clusterfck. The very program used to save your game, deletes your saves when you update it.

Why didn't they put a warning when the helpful little box pops up and says 'would you like to update there's much better stuff avaible online blah blah blah......'
