I heard about the auto-saves being broken in this game (of which i'm a victim to the bug) so I turned them off.

Now I have searched for an answer but couldn't find one...

Are quick-saves just as buggy as auto-saves? ...or should I stick only to the manual save?

Thanks in advance.

Ever since Fallout 3 I've always turned off Auto-Save and almost exclusively use Quick Saves on my main character (still use manual saves on, what I assume at the time, to be an integral choice) and have had no issues so far.

Both saves work just as well. I left my auto-save on default, and that means it auto saves everytime you change an area, which is pretty good if you change area/fast travel often. I tend to rely on quick save when traveling manually.

Like as said, both saves work fine, not buggy.

Yep, no issues with me. I auto-save whenever I travel, rest, or change areas, and auto-save whenever I feel the need.

Well, my last save file got screwed over because I relied on auto saves.

Saving of all kind is working fine, I just hate how the game chooses to not auto-save at times so I have to go back a lot after something happens. Auto-save needs to happen a bit more often.

Just ran into a problem.

My auto saves recently stopped removing themselves from the load list after a period of time. Now there is just one slot available for a quicksave instead of the few I've been used to. When it got down to 1 slot, it would periodically decide to not replace the old quicksave with the new, in a particularly difficult area. I ended up having to play the area over many times, and still haven''t finished it.

Trying to figure out how to delete old saves.

Auto-saves can be buggy for people, because of when it happens, but with quick-saves, just make sure that nothing is 'happening' like combat or people talking to you.
