Game saving

Postby Mady » Wed Dec 14, 2011 9:04 pm

Hello
I recently installed Drakan:Order of The Flame on my friends computer.
But we have a problem...( Ofcourse [:)] )
After I patched the game, we got the game running, but we can't save.
And, if we can't save we can't go to the next level.
So, here is where I need your help, do you know what the problem may be??
We are playing the game on a Windows 7

That is strange bug indeed. What happen when you try to save? Game crashes, freezes, or simple can't load the saved state?

When we press " Quick Save " the green text came out, and it said " Unable to save game ".
And we also are unable to save in the normal " save " in the menu...
When we enter the new level it's just a black screen...

Does sound an odd bug. Are you playing the game under an admin account or standard user in Windows 7? It may be something to do with file / directory permissions. Also try re-installing it if you have not already done so.

On W7 I bet on permissions - W7 disallows non-admin running programs to write anything into Program files directory :)
The solution would be to right click on shortcut and set "Run as administrator", or move the Drakan outside Program FIles directory (ie C:\ or My documents)
