      There's literally nothing wrong with Steel Battalions save system. You might not like it, but it adds real weight to the choices you make in game regarding your upgrades, and how much damage you try to facetank in the game.
      Also locking your save file if you don't hit the escape button in time is 10/10 immersion.

      Most games that have both, deliberately keep autosaves seperate from manual for this sort of shit. Not doing that is actual developer moronation and refusing to look at your peers and learn any userful lessons from them, not user.

      it's very easy to make sure that autosaves never overwrite manual saves.
      it's also very easy to program in more than 1 save file.

            >here is only 1 save file and any kind of save will just nuke and overwrite it.
            No dude, there is an autosave slot that happens regularly and an inn save that you can only overwrite by choosing to rest at an inn

            You can come back to your inn save as many times as you want and never lose it until you manually decide to save over it, unlike your autosave which you CAN trigger manually but will be overwritten on its own in 5 minutes automatically

            What this guy did was not rest in town for 5 hours, then go back to his old manual town save and mash through all the menus and server updates instead of just quitting which let the game autosave over his 5 hours of just autosaves

            >it's also very easy to program in more than 1 save file.
            The game is designed to be played on 1 save because the Pawn system is tied to online synchronisation which connects during inn rests. A multiple save system would let you desync pawn stats, dupe items by giving them to other players, and save scum quests which is fricking lame and defeats the purpose of so many quests having fail states.

              I'm sorry but this is just anti-consumer DRM garbage. it has nothing to do with bettering the game. it's insane you think this garbage is a defence.

              no save data should be held hostage on a server. absolute cancer.

                Manual saves are limited to inn saves. You can save anytime you want, but the game will overwrite that save with an autosave. The game should just separate manual saves and auto saves like every other modern game, but it doesn't.

                Autosaving would made that pointless but it's at least a good thing about that, repeating 2% chests and killing yourself to figure out the purification fixed RNG table was one of the worst thins I've seen in a single player game.

      if you're gonna have one save slot then don't have multiple points to load from. it's moronic. just give the people multiple save files, but that would ruin their little business with the no-big-deal microtransactions.

        the game autosaves every now and then (I think it's about 5-10 minutes or after an event of some kind), and the game straight up also tells you that autosaves are unreliable from the beginning, ironically. when he loaded the save, it probably saved over his progress nearly immediately. it's definitely his own fault if he's the one that chose the option to load at the inn.

          Yeah, say what you will about the nature of the save system but the game makes it abundantly clear that inns should be used as hard save points and the auto saves and manual saves are more like a checkpoint. Its the first thing you're told to do when you enter the opening settlement right after you make your pawn.

          Ignoring inns because you don't want to use them is effectively a self imposed challenge. Getting stuck because the game auto saved next to an invisible wall on a cliff so you have no option but to rewind to an inn save is something I've seen happen and i wouldn't argue with a negative score, misclicking your targer save when you're actively ignoring one of the games main systems is your own problem

            That's what I'm using it for. Which is funny because supposedly these restrictive save and playthrough conditions are specifically to have players live with their decisions and discourage savescumming like jumping off a cliff to test out fall lethality, but you literally can still do that. So they're kind of in this weird janky middleground where they just piss everyone off.

      wait, why does saving at an inn and saving at camp not share the same save file? I thought DD2 had 2 save files, the hard save, which is shared between save points like inns, camps and rift stones and then the autosave file which constantly updates or is overwritten by manual saves from the options menu?

          He outright says his overall playtime is skewed because he left his game running. He's annoyed because he lost around six hours of progress.

      He says there that it's too expensive and while I don't think that's necessarily the case, you're not really losing anything for just choosing to camp out. Here are the objective facts

      >Camping
      +Free
      +Infinite use
      +Cooking buffs
      +Campspots literally everywhere
      -Can't organize storage

      >Inn
      +Item storage
      -Not free
      -risk of Dragongout nuke

      It's entirely reasonable to not sleep at an inn at all. What is not reasonable however is that the save point is arbitrarily tied to inns specifically despite being the same thing but functionally worse.

        This reminds me of how Baulders Gay 3 players were refusing to camp to conserve resources. Which leads to tons of story triggers not working correctly. Game devs do not anticipate players to be so israeli. I rest at home/inn whenever I can just to avoid OPs blunder.

          BG3 camp was shit. They went full on with muh mass effect ship feel with it, except it doesn't fricking work in a game where your resources directly tied to resting.

          I skipped camping in BG3 not because of resources, but because I was informed by the game that I was on a timer at all times. I only camped when I had to, as the game had informed me that wasting time would lead to negative consequences.

          No, I don't care what internet guides say almost a full year after I played the game. I exclusively play games on launch without following some zoom zoom e-celeb or internet guide. The game told me that wasting time was bad, and thus implied not wasting time by camping every time I cast 2 spells was a good thing.

    Kinda weird it saved over his save right after loading. Even though the game has auto save, it should only triggers on specific action or specific point/place. Maybe he was panicking after seeing his early save and do something that triggered the auto save.
    I'm not trying to defense the save system btw. It's true that it's pretty bad. At least you have mods on PC so you have away to protect your save.

    The save system and the opportunity to start new games is deliberately limited because it brings in more revenue for Capcom through microtransactions.
    It's as simple as that.
    It's because of this, too, that the media, which these days is nothing more than an arm of corporations and governments, is, along with shills, trying to demonize gamers who are complaining about microtransactions, because they don't want consumers pressuring them to back down from their easy money strategies.

    Please be straight with me.
    You can NOT restart your save in any form or circumstance?
    You can NOT just press New Game and override your previous state and just start anew? Or the only way to do this is to pay for a restart ticket? Only thinkg I found was tickets to change character appearance.
    Or are people just complaining you just have one save slot?

      You can delete your save file in windows or whatever console ui menu, not ingame.

        Why do you think they have to make an announcement for this

        But all I take from the printscreen is that they somehow were so moronic they forgot to implement a clear save option.
        Haven't found the specific MTX which allows you to do that. Is the same one with the reskin?

      So on consoles you'd only get to play the game once??

        Guess you're stuck on NG+ cycles with the same character unless you do some sort of hard save deletion.
        This is weird because I'm one of these people who'd rather start a new fresh run than NG+, even in Souls it's just number inflation on enemies and you're overpowered for at least 2 or 3 cycles anyway.
        Why not give the NG+ for whoever wants that and a clear save option for other people?
        Even GB Pokemon Red you could just new game and overwrite your save if you wished so.

          There are some exceptions like a few different enemy placements in DS2 Ng+ cycles. But not enough to interest me in just not restarting a new character.
          I accept the one save thing due to the pawn/online stuff as a excuse, because even MH World gives you 3 slots.

        Consoles will also get a new save option. That was just the steam post for steam users.
