corrupt saves (vice city, PS2)


Recommended Posts

hello,

 

i am getting close to the end of the game.

 

i had this problem happen at the ice cream location - i think

i read somewhere else that it was a known problem, and i decided

to skip that asset.

 

basically, i'm at the film studio, and after completing a mission i save it there, but when i tried to load it later, i just get a black screen. i re-did the mission (the one where you pick up the chicks for the porn movie) and then

drove to vercetti mansion to do the save. that seemed to then load fine.

 

so i finally finished dildo dodo and i purposely saved it at both

the film studio and the mansion, and neither will load! black screen

for both.

 

any ideas? is this a known problem?

 

please help!

Try starting a new game, and then loading your old saved games from the menu once the new game has started.

 

That is all.

sure, i can load a previous good save, but the bottom line is,

i can't save the game after the dildo dodo mission. every dildo dodo save i try to load comes up with a black screen.

 

so is the only solution to just load a previous save, do that mission again

(i had a lot of trouble finishing that one btw), and just keep playing until the game is over? why do certain saves not load properly???

Cherry Poppers has a known bug in the PS2 version. Don't ever save there. SSA is a block away and Vercetti Estate is a short drive away.

Woah, that sucks royally. I know it's not what you want to hear, but maybe try Dildo Dodo and then another mission too before saving? Do you swap games out a lot or can you maybe just eject the disc and turn off your TV until your next gaming session? confused.gif

Just to add to this...

 

I loaded my last good save (Recruitment Drive), completed Dildo Dodo again, continued to play, completed Martha's Mug Shot, and then saved

the game at three different locations (film studio, Kaufman Cabs, and the Nightclub). NONE OF THEM WILL LOAD. It says load successful, and I get a black screen.

 

THIS IS TOTAL CRAP. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING??

you haven't filled up your memory card have you? what happen's if that runs out even though you may have game slots available. i have a 32M card but i noticed some 5M cards on the shelf. anyway each gamesave i think (according to my card stats) is 500K. so if you have other games also on your card, you may not have enough for a full slate of gtavc? just asking... i just bought my ps2 a few weeks ago. (i've already played the pc version for awhil).

i've been using all the slots (for VC2) as i've played the game... i basically

cycle throught all the spots as i complete each mission, overwriting earlier saves as i go. there are other saves for other games on the card, but i haven't removed the vice city disc since i started playing, so the only way your explanation could be the answer is if the saves get progressively bigger as you move along (in vice city). unlikely, but possible.

 

i never took notice, can i delete a save entirely from a slot to free up space ?

Are you using a Gameshark, Action Replay, ior Codebreaker accesory? I have a Gameshark and it occasionally screws up my saves or game, especially if you have compressed the file. And I apologize I don't know the answer to your other question.

they may get bigger (more stuff to save as you go sort of makes sense, dunno) well i've only had my ps2 for a few weeks so im just guessing. i can delete save files from my memory cards interface, but i 'think' you may be able to delete save files from inside game...im not sure about that one (so many games, so many menu options...in my tiny head)

About the size of the saved games: with the pc version of the game all saves are 179kB (few from the start, few 100%), so I guess on the ps2 the size of the saved games will also not grow.

 

So if he used the eight slots succesfully, there shouldn't be an issue with the saved games not fitting on the memcard.

 

About the problem, I don't know what causes the problem, if you save over an infected slot when loading an older game, can it be loaded correctly? Maybe the memcard became faulty?
