Campaign not saving or loading correctly

Campaign not Saving or Loading correctly??? All Unlocks, Worlds, G monies, Inventory Items...all GONE. This happened more than once and it is not fun when you could and will lose everything on the wimp of the system. :shock:

Sounds more like you are switching what profiles you are playing on? Saves are profile specific, if someone logs you out and logs in a different profile, you're not going to see your saves, you'll see theirs (which may be nothing if they've never played).

Also I don't know if you use a Flash Drive but I saved there once by accident on another game and did the same thing to me :oops:

Only play this on 1 profile on 1 Xbox and no external drive, also I encounter this problem in both co-op and single game play.

How are you exiting the game or turning off the xbox (what screen are you on when you power off)?

I had a problem with it not saving a claim I bought, when I had exited the mission (returning to the Missions screen) and then powering off.

Apparently, the point that the game actually saves is a bit of a mystery. So it may be possible to power-off or exit the game before it actually saves. I suspect if you return to the game's "Start" screen, that all the data has been saved at that point. But if you are on the Missions screen, having just exited a mission, don't count on it.

The XNA framework has a 2 step save process which is basically saving, then saving to disk. Seems silly, but the second save takes a long time, because the xbox was built for graphic speed, not disk access.

In the 1.0 release, the second step only happened when you left the game through the main menu. We have an update in the pipes that saves to disk at the main menu. If you have a memory stick in, you'll be prompted to choose either the memory stick or hard drive when this happens.

In the 1.0 release, the best way to make sure you save everything is to quit out of the game at the main menu.
In the 1.1 update, make sure you at least get back to the main menu - so quit out of the campaign mission selection screen.

We will keep looking for ways to force the save to disk without interrupting the game play.
