Saved games

10 posts in this topic

I have played most of the Spiderweb games. In Nethergate Resurrection I seem to be able to only go back one save. How do I access more than one saved game slots??

There's no special trick to it - it should be just like other Spiderweb games, where you go to save a game or load a game and have multiple slots from which to choose. Have you saved more than one save game file so far? Maybe I'm not understanding your problem, but I'm not really sure what else to say.

Unlike say Gold Box games of the early 90s, there are no slots for saving games. To create a wholly new save game file you will need to access the File Menu, click on the floppy disk icon in the toolbar.

when I click on the "load game" icon I get just two choices, my last save and a seemingly random earlier save that takes me back hours of game playing time, no other slots like previous games. I've had to start over several times and it's very frustrating.

There is no save slot system for Nethergate. You can create as many save files as you want. If you click Save Game, it automatically updates the save file you loaded. If you click Save Game As instead, you can choose to make a new one.

If you never choose Save Game As: there will only ever be the one save game. I personally make a new save game every day.

There are no automatic saves at any point in any Spiderweb game.

Uh. yes there are. Every single Geneforge game autosaves as you leave a zone. Avernum 4-6 (and possibly Avadon and Avernum: Escape from the Pit) also have autosaves, though I believe those are triggered by time rather than events.

 

I mean, sure, Nethergate doesn't have an autosave, but saying that no Spiderweb games does is completely false.

Yeah. I'm guessing Ishad Nha might have been thinking of "points where the game automatically saves, overwriting your last manual save." Those don't exist. But what Nikki describes is actually called "Autosave" in-game, sooo...

I was thinking about First Avernum Trilogy. Rewrite comments in post #6 to:

"If you never choose Save Game As: there will only ever be the one save game. I personally make a new save game every day. There are no automatic saves at any point in any N:R."

Generally, if you are playing a game for the first time you should make new saves regularly.

Thanks for the help, "save game as" is what I needed. saving at least once a day could keep me from starting over etc.
