Re: Please add this to the database: Asterix & Obelix XXL

Each game is different, but generally speaking most games have some sort of ' Installation Location '-esk registry value within the ' HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WoW6432Node\Publisher\GameName ' key (where ' Publisher ' is the publisher--or developer--of the game and ' GameName ' is the game's name ...

Re: Farcry 5

For the most basic use of GameSave Manager, simply launch it and select ' Make a backup... ' from it's Main Menu. Next, 'tick' any item you wish to backup and then click the ' Start Task ' button ( not the ' Delete ' button!). If you need visual ques, you can find several tutorials on YouTube of var...

Re: «Officially Supported» database updated is never ended

Where are you running GameSave Manager from? Does the path contain any "special" or non-latin characters? Examples as such are accented characters (á,é,í,ó,ú) and languages that don't base their alphabet on the latin A-Z (such as Mandarin, Aarabic, Russian, etc). You may just have enabled the Readon...

Re: «Officially Supported» database updated is never ended

Try downloading the database manually via this link . Place the file you've just downloaded into your 'bin' sub-folder, overwriting any existing files. Next, go to your Program Settings and confirm that " Use pre-compiled database updates " is selected (within General Settings -> Update Behaviour ) ...

Re: Saves Error

I've been playing dark soul 2 for a while and i never encountered saves error. what causes this ,and how to fix it? Save file creation isn't anything to do with GameSave Manager. This project is for backing up, transfering and generally managing your saves. If a game regularly keeps corrupting it's...

Re: Support for multiple Steam Libraries

Sync & Link uses the same scanning results as the Backup feature. The exceptions are (by default) to not list any entry that isn't using the *.* wildcard for Inclusions or has anything specified for Exclusions. With that said, you can overwrite this behaviour via the Sync & Link section of Program S...

Re: Sync and Link Initialization error occurred

Sync & Link uses the Windows command MKLINK, which requires administrative rights.
Are you running GameSave Manager with full administrative rights?

Re: Runtime Error

The v3.x branch has issues with some character sets.
It's something I tried to fix, but never fully got working (something I aim to address fully in v4.x).

In any case, have you tried "ignoring" this entry?
You can do this via the following commandline:

Code: Select all

gs_mngr_3.exe "/ignore 8BitBoy™"

Re: Multi-user saves not saved

This is something I'm looking into for v4.x, but it's not quite as easy as you make out. What if the user has set their Documents, AppData or even User Profile directories to a different location? It's a somewhat fringe issue, but still an issue. There's also the problem of backing up registry data ...

Re: Unable to Restore/Recover My Data

There's a couple of things you can try: Disable cloud syncing - The Assassin's Creed franchise uses Uplay's Cloud Sync, this should be disabled in order to use an older save when restoring. Much in the same way Rise of the Tomb Raider uses Steam Cloud. Temporarily disconnect from the internet - Disa...
