M2G Writes: Someone has posted a handy guide as to how to avoid corrupt save files in Mass Effect 2 on the PS3, which should be handy until Bioware can solve the issues.
People this is my guide posted originally in Bioware's official Mass Effect 2 board. My nick there "Valkyre4" needs to get the credit not a copy/paste random dude... You can find the guide here: http://social.bioware.com/f... This is an outright lie and those folks at made2game.com need to get their facts straight!!
I haven't played ME2 long enough to have this occur, but if it's happen to a majority of people, it could happen to me. So, thanks.
well save issue hasnt happened to me so im good...for now :(
What a bunch of jerks over at made2game.com...Looks like another bullshit site along with Lens of Truth, Gamingbolt and Ironstar. I bought this game the day it came out, but I've decided to wait for a patch before I start playing.
Ah sorry, never realised it came from the Mass Effect forums, I will credit you and change the story to reflect this.
Ok thanks, It's just that I hate it when people copy/paste without giving credit where its due. Hope this helps alot of people with the problem.
why do i need to be signed in to EA servers ? this isn't need for speed .. is there a need for online interractivity ? i don't get why.
News updates mainly. But considering there's only going to be limited Cerberus updates until ME3 launches, you don't really need it.
You dont have to. There is option not to connect with EA servers. The problem is that the game encourages you to connect with them and the default setting is set to "on". You can disable it and you can play offline just fine. But if the corrupt data has something to do with EA servers, you just need to avoid them entirely, thus the guide I wrote.
Game also sends gameplay information about your choices, if you imported a save/played the interactive comic, which class did you choose, which weapons you've used the most, etc, to Bioware. Which helps them shaping Mass Effect 3 and other games.
Valkyre, this is half joke, half curiosity. How many times you tried all those different steps and how much time in trials and errors did you need to get to make the guide?
I'm wondering what the actual underlying problem is though....never had any issues at all with the PC version, and I can't see the save system being completely different on every platform. Is very weird.
Fallout Vegas for the PC had a similar problem to this where saved games would get corrupted because of some odd issue with Steam cloud.
This is the most overated game i've ever played.Couldn't get more than 5 hours into the clunky cover system, shitty third person shooting & stiff robotic Characters with no personality.Not to mention the absolutely useless A.I. Broken save system seals the deal, trading it in soon.
I've played it for about 25 hours and haven't ran into any problems. I might kick a dog if my file goes corrupt now!! @thatcanadianguy Are you sure you're playing the same game and not Fallout?
I been playing for ages and haven't had a problem, Saved my game enough times as well, maybe some people switching off their system before its done saving, cos I have nearly done it twice so id imagine its quiet easy to do
It happened to both me and a friend
another solution is to get it on PC or 360.
