HELP: Lost my save

Post by RaughKee » October 13th, 2018, 11:05 am

I accidentally misclicked on “New Game” and now am missing my other game. The only save is in the list is the Autosave, which is of the New Game. Have I lost my characters, where are the saves stored and why can’t I name my saves?

The Bard's Tale only allowed for the saving of the Party, not actually saving one's progress in the game —per se.

You can name your saves. In game press Escape and then click on save, at the bottom of the box will be a text box that you can then use to name your save. As to the lost save question, I don't know the answer there.

1) Yes.

2) %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\InXile Entertainment\The Bard's Tale Trilogy\saves\

3) You can, but you have to use the F10 menu Save instead of the autosave mechanism or the F5 quicksave.

I took it to mean that this was the emulated version—not the recent remastered version.
