I'm having strange problem with saving. First two to six saves might work correctly, but after that the game just starts to copy the previous save over and over. So I might get correctly working saves from 1 to 4 maybe, and then every time I save after that it just creates a copy of save 4.
My OS is 64-bit Windows 7. If this could be caused by mods, I'm using dxEnhanced, NewVision and HDTP.
1) I do not use ANY
2) In order to save the game I have to create a new save. I am unable to overwrite save files.
3) I am unable to delete save files while playing the game under the Save and Load menus. When I choose to delete a save file and click delete the save with that name, call it Save X, is no longer there. However, as soon as I open the Save or Load menu again Save X is still there.
4) When I look in the Save folders (whatever your GoG folder path is\Deus Ex GOTY\Saves) there are three folders: Current, Save0001 and Save 0002. This shows that I appear to have 2 or possibly 3 saves, however I have to use the method described in 2) so I actually have 5 or 6 save files. On top of this, the files in Current and Save0001 are exactly the same. Save0002 is different only insofar as the size of one of the files, being 7,860KB instead of 7,861KB.
When it comes down to brass tacks I have no idea where my save files actually are, I am unable to delete or overwrite saves in game, and I can only save the game by creating a brand new save file each time I want to save the game. It would be great if someone from GoG could look into or comment on this issue because I am using a non-modified version and having what may be related issues to the OP's save issues. Update #1
Boct's response here (http://www.gog.com/forum/deus_ex_series/where_are_the_dx1_saves_located
) was a big help for me and the thread can easily be found by looking in the Support section for Deus EX GOTY. Unfortunately, there are further problems.
Related to my issue with being unable to overwrite saves, I have six folders: Current and Save0001-0005. Current has 4 saves, the same as Save0005. However, Save0001 is empty; Save0002 has 1 save file; Save0003 has 2 save files, the same one as Save0002 and another file; Save0004 has 2 save files, the same as the unique file in Save0003 and another file; Save0005 ultimately contains all of the aforementioned files along with a unique file.
I have absolutely no idea why there are so many back-ups, especially when attempting to overwrite and delete files does nothing. Further, I have no idea why I have save folders in the path described before Update #1 if the save files are actually tucked away in one of the AppData folders.
