You all are the best. I will try another cry for help to get me out of this dance mess. I have followed MaGS instructions to the letter. Gave the "save" file he sent the next number in my save game list. I have also tried saving to the desktop and then transfering to the Bout folder in My Documents, I have also tried to enter the "save" with its new number after the last save in my list as well as at the beginning, However the save does not appear in the game save/load choice list inside the game. The save that I received was "savegame29.ksj" and renumbered to savegame 70.ksj. Any chance in my salvaging this game? what happened to the forgiving after several tries? Is there a patch perhaps that corrects this issue? Anyhow, thanks again for your responses and as usual your help!
