[g4.2.0] Save failed!

Postby DOOMGABR [RU] » Wed Aug 28, 2019 6:16 am

GZdoom g4.2.0 can't save game! It writes "Save failed". Regardless of whether I play with or without modifications.

As far as issues that are so vague we can't even help you, this qualifies as one of the top ones. No system info, no information about how your GZDoom is set up ... nothing...

He's trying to save in a folder without write permissions, owned by a different user. I guess.

Just "guessing" what is wrong really does not help anyone here.

The old adage "help us help you" applies here. If you aren't forthcoming with the necessary information, no one can help you.

Plus, I am fairly certain you are not even correct, drfrag, because GZDoom redirects the save folder to a different location if it cannot use the current one.
