View Full Version : Burnout corrupted my save

02-14-2008, 07:04 PM
Right, I was 4 Burning Routes short from Elite, when this happened. I used to use the Load-option when I screwed a race, so I would return to the Junkyard. Half the time this made my game to crash. Unfortunately, I can't even get to play anymore. When I start the game, it always freezes at the startup loading screen. If I make a new save it works, but no way in hell I'm playing this crappy game again from the start.

ohhh...that's sad...well I guess sell the game or redo the game...

If it had problems around half the time, why would you keep doing it?

That makes no sense. Burnout didn't mess up your save, you messed up your save.

Anytime a game crashes while saving or loading it will likely corrupt the save. This happened to me in Forza 2, had all the cars... lost everything... :( <-sad face
I backup to a memory card now after every game session. Paradise only froze a couple times on me which is actually pretty good for EA game. ;)

Don't blame the game, blame yourself or even microsoft, as its the actual console that started crashing in the first place

Yea but the console only crashes continuously with this particular game. And when a game has a Load-function, I expect it to work properly, especially in this game. Free roam+racing game=failure.
