Saved game not loading at all

I had about 19% of the game finished, obviously i had my game saved, and my roommate bought the lord of the rings two towers game and we played that, and saved two games on it, the next day, i put in the vice city disc and tried to play the game, everything went as normal, all the way up to the games saying its loading from the memory card and not to remove it, then it said "Loading Complete" and i expected to go to my game, nope, just black screen, WTF!x3. WHats going on, all the other games we own work fine with this memory card, i put the ps2 on browser mode, and checked the memory card, it registers as having vice city stuff on it, its not erased. i also tried playing the game without a memory card, that worked as well. i cleaned the disc, i let the game sit there at the black screen for a  whole day, whats going on!!!!!!!!

This sort of thing happens to a lot of people here...happened to me, I saved a game, only to turn my ps2 back on a few hours later and my saved game had disappeared.  Nobody can really help ya, sorry man.  I know the feeling, only I had about 35% when I had to start over.

I think that this could be one of 3 things, either it is a bad memory card or there is not enough room for the new save, or it was operator error and you did not wait until it finished saving before ejecting game or turning ps2 off.  Also, as to saving with cheats....IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE! It will not screw up your game..it is just a rumor that will not DIE!

Hey auntie. Are you a girl? Otherwise that's pretty creepy...

 

 

Oh, and about the corrupt save. Did you use an off brand Memory card? I know my Spongebob Game corrupted when I tried my Tampax Memory Card.

hey 6th s3nse, thanks...i thought there was an atleast halfway explaination for this, yeah i did save at Cherry poppers,i guess that happens cause the save site isn't on the map, but there is a cassette there.

 

ps. no i didnt use cheats, that shate is crap, lay off of em atleast until you finish the game.

there is no point in this game at which you can save and it will corrupt your file...it is either a bad memory card, or you did not wait for it to completely save before you turned it off.  The latter of the two is probably more correct.

This is ridiculous. Okay, so far I’ve heard that if you save at Cherry Poppers, Sunshine Autos, Hymen Condo, and your mansion, the save file will become corrupted.

bullsheet!!!!!

You stupid f*cks need to stop spreading these dumbass rumors. You just happened to have saved here when your game stopped working. It is nothing but coincidence. I have saved at all of these places numerous times. In fact, those are probably the four main places I save. I have never had a problem with my game. It’s operator error or hardware failure. Pure and simple. I won’t say that it has anything to do with cheats because I don’t know for sure, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case as well.

Regardless, stop with the ridiculous rumors. It’s getting old.

operator error? Hardware error? For the last time, it's niether! Just wait until it happens to you buddy...... :die: It's a random problem with no explanation, and something that NEVER happens in ANY other game/game series

i don't plan on it happening to me because i use multiple saves, a real memory card, and no cheats.

 

i assure you it isn't random. there is something you are all doing that is causing. you may not admit to it or you just may not know it but you're doing something. if you weren't, everyone would be having the same problem.

The only explanation I can think of is this.....when I saved it, I had three cop stars on me.......that's the only explanation, I swear I don't use cheats unless I'm going crazy killing everyone ( and after I get bored of doing this, I reset it, and resume my normal-storyline-no cheats used- game )

THAT'S IT

This save problem is completely random. There are no specific variables which will lead up to this problem. There are indeed many glitches in VC, this just (and unfortunatly) happens to be one of them. It does not matter where or when you save. It does not matter how far into the game you have gotten. It does not matter how many stars on your wanted level you have. One guy's excuse was that he had he had bought an un-normaly high amount of ammo for his Ruger. No, it is a completely random glitch, like the game suddenly slowing down or the city, roads and every inanimate object around you being in half-detail. This save glitch is not limited to VC (and definetly not limited to the PS2). Any game with any glitch in it whatsoever (which is about 99.9% of every video game in the world) has slight chance of the "blank-save glitch".
