Multiple Saves of One Game

Post by samscott89 »

Hi,

I've tried searching but couldn't find the answer.

How does GSM go about saving multiple saves within a game?

It seems to work perfectly; identifying all games, taking scheduled backups, syncing with my cloud etc. But I can't tell if it takes all saves from within one game.

Example: In M&B Bannerlord I have 2 saves. Save 1 is directly after the lengthy intro and tutorial mission and I can boot this up if I want to start again without having to sit through it all. Save 2 is my actual ongoing campaign saved regularly.

Does GSM back both of these up?

Thanks for any input.

If your game supports multiple save slots or save files, GameSave Manager attempts to detect--and backup--them all.
For example, your Skyrims and Witchers have manual saves. This causes many players to have hundreds of save files, which GameSave Manager will detect and backup.

However, if you're manually swapping out your saves (in cases where the game doesn't have multiple save slots or save file support), then GameSave Mangaer will only detect what is currently "swapped in".

That's perfect - exactly the answer I was looking for.

Thank you.

You said GameSave Manager attempts to detect and backup them all. Does it work for multiple save within one game but for different modes? I'm not sure how exactly it works, so I'm asking here. The mods seem unrelated to each other, even though they're under one game. I'm talking about No Man's Sky. Plus, I always use trainers for this game (it's fun but a bit boring in the looting) - can it corrupt the saves under GameSave Manager? I like the app, it works perfectly for both my main account from boosting wow service and an alternate one for looting woods. But it's unclear about No Man's Sky.
