I have a problem to save games in EAW The symptom is allways the same, I start up some kind of battleground in the campaign On the first save i create it takes only 5 sec to write the save, and its the same speed perhaps in 10 straight overwriting saves, but if i continue save around after thath..it will slowly start to take longer and longer time for eatch save means thath if im in a phase where im on my way to complete a mission, i can count to whait 4 minutes for the game to be save by now :moon: if it takes to long for my patient and i press "alt" in combi with <---- button and leave games for windows, and check procces-tree it shows thath the game have stopped responding, and i must kill the procces and the save is lost So it acts like it can't accept thath i save too mutch in serie, cause the save self-rise..this thou seems to be resetted back to normal save-speed again after eatch new battle and offcorse game restart, and then the stair you dont wanna go up to start to puch you again.. im not 100 % but i think the problem is moore common in ground battles rather than space battles..dont know what thath reveals, My same folder is on 109 Mb now, thath cant be to mutch right? my biggest save-file right now lies on 39 Mb, my smallest is on 9 Mb..perhaps if i save in new slots all the time from now could prevent it? but i guess it all depends on if the size gets bigger if you save over existing saves..ore what element now decide how big a safe-file will be? I have tested to kill some unnessary processes before starting the game yes have 3 Gb free on C:/ system drive wher saves land and 7 GB free on the game install directory disc its the same disc..thei are just splitted Pentium 3.4 GHz 2 Gb Ram Geforce 8600 GTS TDH Allways latest Nvidia driver I have hade this probem on another graphic card to, this problem accually started a year ago at the same time as some earlier EAW-patch than latest was installed, and yes my game is fully patched now Ok now i am complete emty on info and thauts..but do you have any questions? otherwise my question is..when will George Lucas give us thath patch 1.06? ITS ONLY EAW of the modern games i posses who saves slow like this, wich are far moore system-hogging than EAW, so we must exclude system-requirment solutions really Now i tested again, and the it didnt even saved succesfully on the first time, just keeps processing forever, and kill the procces was not even possible..so i was forced to restart the computer, its impossible for me to complete the campaign like this

huh, Your system is running VERY similar hardware to mine, except I run a duel core with a pentium 2.8 or 2.9 processor. You shouldnt have a problem with saving unless its VISTA WHICH SUCKS.

Its XP lucky enough for me, thei say the same thing on LucasForums allso..Vista "'should' have this problem damn it feels hard, i who hade planes to buy Force of corruption
Im positive thath i have concluded thath the biggest problem is on Mon Calamari ground battles, and some moore planets i dont remember now ..some ground battle planets didnt save slow just before i did the test, and yes there is no save problems in space battles at all i think there is problem with game memory leaks on some 'spots', not my computer any comments?
Now im back with a new computer, and offcorse i got some lust to allso test how EaW would save on this equitment.

Same pattern again, once on a battlefield ar started..you do 1 save on 2 second, you do 2 saves, you do 3 and it goes just litter longer to complete each time, hardley noteable the first fiew saves, but when you are around...6 it start to be hughe different, and from there we talk about 2 minutes if it doenst stop respond
and this time nobody can accuse my lack of harddrive space, cause now i have near 10 Gb free on C:/ wery depressing this, and it feels like i have flushed down money in a golden toilet just I guess nobody here doesnt have any new advices no?
perhaps i could test edit this "swconfig" files that use to lie around in moder games, available for modcreators yadayada but i dont know what lines i could change in all by myself
