Load saved games is blank despite my game autosaving

Post by Arodote » Sun Dec 10, 2017 6:38 am

Whenever i try save a game it wont appear in the saved games. I restarted my pc, i checked if i was in elk territory/ if npc wolves were around me. Still having this problem. Do i have to get the mate in order for my game to start saving? Or do i need a certain xp amount?

Hi Arodote,

There are no limits to saving; auto-saving and manual saves should appear reliably regardless the map/episode/your progress.

If you're on Windows (I believe this applies to 8, 8.1 and possibly 10), some versions of the operating system might save to an alternative "My Documents" directory. If this has happened, check your Documents directory and see if a "WolfQuest" folder exists. If it doesn't, open file explorer, go to C:\Users\%USERNAME% and see if there are any other 'Documents' directories. For example, C:\Users\%USERNAME%\My Documents or C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents. If you find a WolfQuest folder in one, look inside and if save data exists there, move it over to the other directory and see if the game detects your save data.

By default, Windows defines "Documents" (not "My Documents") as the default directory for documents. You can change this by right-clicking one of the directories, opening Properties and clicking the Location tab, then moving your directory over to "My Documents". Some things will still save to the old documents directory, so if you do this, you'll still be able to access directly from your Users\%USERNAME% directory. You can revert this change at any time.

Someone recently found that BitDefender, an anti-malware app, was preventing the game from saving properly. Do you have anything like that on your computer?

Glad to hear the initial problem has been solved! To prevent repeated answers I'll go ahead and lock this topic :)
