Lost Save Files

#1JRTIGHE141Posted 12/17/2012 11:27:31 AM(edited)
When I started up the game today, it presents me with only the 'New Game' option. However, I've checked my C:/ProgramData/Orbit/46 and 2 files are still there titled 'Save005.sav' and 'saves' which is a configuration file.

Can anyone help? Thank you.

EDIT: I realise this has been asked many times before but as of yet I cannot find a fix. I have searched the board but can't find anything.

Considering all the pirated Rosetta Stone software, I'd expect you to have a much better grasp on the English language.

i have the same problem and what i did was. (for windows 7)

1. go to run and type in "%programdata%"
2. go to "orbit" folder
3. move "46" folder and paste it on your desktop, we will name this folder URSAVE. now the orbit folder is EMPTY
4. open far cry 3 and start a new game until it can AUTOSAVE.
5. close far cry 3.
6. go again to the "orbit" folder
7. you can see there is a new folder "46". open it.
8. copy the SAVE00*.SAV from URSAVE and put it on the NEW "46" folder.
9. open the SAVE.INI file in the NEW "46" folder and change the number according to your save file.

[Saves]
Save006=130002853324560000

in my case, my save file was SAVE004.SAV, so i changed the Save006 - Save004

That's it. Try opening Far Cry 3 and the game will load your saved game.

hope this helps
