Game won't stop auto-saving [PC]

#1 Posted by JSwan13 (295 posts) -

[Minor Spoilers?] So I just beat Flynt and went to Claptrap's ship, when I hit the button to fast travel to Sanctuary it would not let me go because the game was auto-saving. I waited about 5 minutes and it was still saving. I tried to save and exit but that didn't work. I ended up having to quit while it was saving, which resulted in me losing all progress for that quest, and that didn't even fix the problem. Now I am by Sir Hammerlock and it is still auto-saving non stop. Anyone know a fix?

Hard save and restart the game? Or does BL2 not have manual saving?

@Ravenlight: The only type of manual save is "save and exit", and that didn't work

Uh... sounds like you might need to delete your save game and start anew.

Okay, are you playing the Steam version?

If so, try this:

  • Restart your computer. (Seriously, this is the Holy Grail of tech support solutions, don't skip this step)

Then:

  • Right click on the offending game in your Steam library and click Properties.
  • Shuffle on over to the Local files and click Verify integrity of game cache
  • Wait while Steam checks out your game files. This can take seconds or up to ten minutes depending how how big the game is (Team Fortress 2 is the only one I know that will take ten minutes).
  • If any files were missing or corrupt, Steam will redownload them and you should be good to go!

This worked, thanks!
