I just installed Avernum 5 and cannot get it to save the game -- not in a save slot, no quicksave, and no autosave. I keep getting a message that says "error 3," and to try another slot. But no slots work. I Googled that error and found one mention on the Spiderweb forums, with a person who said that they had a solution to the problem, but the page that he linked to was dead. I followed the suggestions on the GOG support page -- my UAC was already set to minimum, and running/reinstalling as administrator makes no difference. I did just replay Avernum 4, and checking that installation I noticed that it stored the save game folders in a different locaiton. Those were in the data folder in the main game folder, while 5 creates a folder under My Documents. I tried copying those save folders into the data folder for the Avernum 5 folder, just like 4 did, but that still did not help.
