THE PROBLEM
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've just been to hell and back with a copy of RE2 Platinum for PC. when I was playing the game,
I would try to save. Then, when I wanted to reload, the program wouldn't read the save file! I 
panicked for a about two hours, then I solved the problem. 




THE SOLUTION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you've installed RE2 on WinXP, leave the disk in the CD-ROM drive.

1. Go to START/PROGRAM FILES/CAPCOM/RESIDENT EVIL2/RESIDENT EVIL2.EXE

2. Right-click on the icon. Select PROPERTIES.

3. Click the COMPATIBILITY tab.

4. In the COMPATIBILITY MODE box, place a check mark in the box that reads "RUN THIS PROGRAM IN 
COMPATIBILITY MODE FOR:"

5. In the scroll menu beneath, WINDOWS 95 should already be the choice.

I basically figured out that RE2 and RE3 are not compatible with WindowsXP. By running it under 
temporary previous settings, you should have no problem reading your save files.

Good luck!
