    Castlevania Lords of Shadow error - back up your save file!

    I've just played it for about 3 hours, and my save file just got wiped.

    After trying to load my game it said: 'save file corrupt, will now overwrite, press X to continue'. I pressed X (automatically expecting it to load the game) and my data was wiped.

    I did a google search, and this has apparently happened to a couple of other people too. Castlevania only uses 1 save file, so I advise you all to back-up your save on a USB stick just in case.

    I'm pissed off about this, but I'm glad I was not too far into the game.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll definitely back mine up today before I play.

    +Rep for your trouble.

    Yeah, I think I'll hold off from buying until it's fixed. Disappointing to read they can't get the basics right.

    Jeez it's out in the Uk tommorrow I just got my text from GAME saying it's ready to collect I cant believe there's a glitch already and one thats serious imagine getting into the game really far you save and quit come back a little later and BAM saved corrupted.

    I know the feeling because of a in game glitch in Dante's Inferno f***ed everything up and I had to start again.

    I've been doing it half-way through a chapter, or after a long level. I always dread loading it now.

    Well I find myself a little mad, I got to chapter 3 - I got to the final boss, was doing good.. but I got stuck on it. So I went to bed. Well, guess what?

    I get the save file damaged message. I know its partially my fault cause I got this warning but forgot to do it, but that is ****ed up!

    At this point I dont even think I want to play the game anymore, all that work.. for nothing. I wasnt that far in.. but still.. I was having some trouble on chapter 3, was happy I got past it. Now this :/

    Does anyone know if I can use a save file from another person? I was 15.57% in, had one upgrade on both magics and life. I really dont feel like having to replay all I have done so soon. Think I will have to go back to Darksiders for a bit, or Bioshock 2. Maybe boot up some Dante's Inferno.. :/

    EDIT: Screw it, I'll just play it again. After 43 minutes im already on chapter 2 and im better off (Got all the gems thus far, didnt before.. had to go back and play em a few times.. lol) should be able to breeze through all the parts that had me stuck before, cause I know what I am doing now. Only thing I CBF to do i the trials I did previously. Still kinda annoyed, but after every chapter/few levels ima start to do a backup.

    I have read that it's something to do with the games Auto Save feature even when you turn the game off when you thinks it's finished saving the game is still saving info to the file and you turn it off and it damages the save this is not good for the games devs a glitch so bad on launch,

    We need to ditch this "Auto-Save" feature, more conventient? Yes. But I liek the old "Save at checkpoints"... or even better, make it "Save Anywhere"

    Auto-Save causes too many issues

    I wonder if this Castlevania save file will interact with the upcoming Metal Gear Solid Rising game. You guys do remember the Physco Mantis fight in MGS1, right? So, you never know that this game alone could be an easter egg in the next Metal Gear.
