Then i ran the game, started a new game, went a while with saving and stuff. Then I started another game. Saved that new game in a totally different slot.
Then I tried to load my first game, but it kept loading my second game. Any of the savegame slots i loaded, it would always load my last save of my second game. So in anger i deleted my second games savegame (there was only one slot of it). But then i couldnt load my first game either!
All the slots that were saved after i carried my arcanum folder to the new pc says `empty`. I tried to open them up with notebook and all these slots are empty, only says the name of the savegame and no other data. They dont seem to be corrupted, theyre just gone somehow. When i load one of them it either sends me back to the game menu or loads up the starters merchant map of the beginning of the game.
I thought maybe it has something to do with vistas read-only security measures that prevented the game from creating good savegame files, but then how did it create the .gsi files and then got them all empty except for the names of the savegames and the CurrentGame slot which i suspect i have been using all the time?
If anyone has any idea how to resolve this, please help. I even tried restoring the system to a previous state. Everything went back in time except my arcanum folder (magic huh?). Much appriciated..
