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.


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
