I like this game quite a bit so far, EXCEPT for the save system!

Capcom, if you aren't going to bring back typewriters, at least give us an auto save system that works! I played through Leon Chapter 2 until you get in the church, but had to turn it off to go to work. I clearly remember seeing a "saving" message in be corner of the screen. Yet when I returned to the game today, I had to start the chapter over. Why? I don't remember RE5 being like this.

Am I missing something? Is there at least a way to distinguish the difference between an autosave and a checkpoint?

Isn't 5's saving the same also?

I seem to remember 5s saving your game after every checkpoint, but I could be wrong.

That was probably just an error, I've never had a problem with it saving my place :/

I knew I wasn't crazy.

I would often quit after a supposed save/check point notification, and when I went to play it again it'd start me at a location I already went through.

Checkpoint =/= Save point. Two different things.

It's been so long since I played 5. So I'm not sure.

RE5 and 6 save when there is a loading screen, or each "room". Checkpoints inside the room are only temporary and you lose all progress in the room if you quit

i thought the saving was stats not progress.
