Crash during saving causes ALL non-auto saves to be lost!
Just now I went to go save my game after I was midway through the Pauper's area. The game crashed midway through the save. When I went to reload, I lost all my regular saves, except for the auto, losing the past 2 1/2 hours of progress in the game.
Here's the error that I received:
Faulting application BioShock2.exe, version 18.104.22.168, time stamp 0x4b2adbf8, faulting module MSVCR80.dll, version 8.0.50727.4053, time stamp 0x4a594c79, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0001500a, process id 0x8c0, application start time 0x01caabaf10bd9381.
Is there a way that I can:
A) Somehow recover my save?
B) Avoid this from happening again?
I'd like to continue playing the game but I don't want to get this far again only to have it crash - especially given how sparse the auto-saves are.
Any help with this would be great, thanks!
For A) I think they're lost.
For B) since it was a MSVCR80.dll related crash, you could try uninstalling all Microsoft Visuall C++ entries you can find and install the vcredistx86.exe you can find at: (Drive_Letter):\Support\Redist
You can also periodically make backups of your saves, just in case it happens again.
