Reports on the
CD PROJEKT RED Forums
have multiple accounts of problems with large saved game files in
). Apparently once these grow past about 6 MB it slows down
the loading process significantly and when they pass 8 MB in size they end up
corrupted. The developer hasn't officially acknowledged this yet, but
this post from a moderator
discusses ways to protect yourself from this
No, but stop loading saved games.
First, back up all of your save files by copying them to a folder on your
desktop or something. Then, do a verify / repair of the game.
After that, try loading. If it still doesn't work, erase the "corrupted" saves
and replace them with the backups. Keep doing this as you troubleshoot. It can
often be the loading process, not the saving process that borks a save.
If you were using any sort of modification to the game (like the community's AVX
fix), and you disabled it, put it back in place. Any modification to the game
can leave reference data that will corrupt the game's ability to read the save
files unless the modifications are also running.
