Now the saved games are starting to act up. After a freeze up when I tried to load my last save, it wouldn't load but the prior one did. Then it happened again where the last save wouldn't load but the prior one also wouldn't load. Then some "Game Root" message popped up about not being able to find the saves or something. I started writing it down but only got as far as "Game Root". Leaving it alone for now but will probably give it another try tomorrow.
It's not like I don't have a thousand other games to play but...
Jenny, I did have to use that Alt-F4 one time and it worked fine!
Once you find them - I assume on your Windows 7 - copy to a flash drive. If they are in a specific folder, you may have to create one. It depends on where they are saved. You might have to install the game, start it and create a save to have the file ready. Them import from the flash drive.
I find that when I'm not enjoying a game, I become a lot more picky, whereas if I'm really enjoying it, I can suspend reality and overlook the most ridiculous things. I think that was the case with this one. After playing the first game in the series, this one was a letdown, so the steam pipe on the front porch was just one of many things that bugged me.
That can definitely be the case. The closer you get to breaking that camel's back, the more painful the game is.
