Hi Guys

I am trying to play the Broken Sword 1 again,(A Solid Gold version BR1 and Br2) I have loaded the game and started playing it, but when I try to save, I get the message unable to write to path C:/programme files (x86)/broken sword/saves - anyone have any suggestions for the solution, any answers much appreciated

Many Thanks
SAFC

Either install the game to your (My) Documents folder or right-click the shortcut and choose "Run As Administrator" when you start the game. Maybe both.

The 'Program Files' folder is protected in Windows Vista and above so it will not be able to save there without administrator rights. Try re-installing the game in your documents folder.
