Fallout: New Vegas Discussion
So at first I thought my game had stopped autosaving altogether...but then I realize that it IS autosaving, but somehow after I exit and restart the game, it shows the last autosave as being made recently but it's from hours earlier in the game... While I'm playing if I click 'Load' it shows the correct autosave, but after restarting it shows the old autosave. I've tried deleted the old autosave in the Documents folder but every time, it shows the same exact save point, with the RIGHT autosave being store as autosave.fos.bak in the saves folder...not even sure how it's somehow storing the old autosave...

Found out it has to do with Steam Cloud, also affects quicksaves. For anyone else having this issue I found a thread in the official Obsidian forums here: Link

To those that are still having the save issue, make the .bat file as described on the first page of this thread. Just open Notepad, copy the code from the post below (putting your steam uid number in place of [EDITME]) and when you save it, set the type as "All Files" (as opposed to text document) and save it as any filename ending in .bat . Then put that file in the directory where FalloutNV.exe (for me this is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas). Now, when you double-click this file a small script will run (you'll see a command prompt window open briefly) and the Fallout will start just as if you had clicked the shortcut. Then you can create a desktop shortcut to that file and even change the icon and it will function just like a shortcut. This has completely resolved my problems with auto and quick saves, and you don't even have to turn off steam cloud.

Ya I was just gonna add this was listed all over the place as a known issue. I'm glad someone got around to making a temp fix for it till they get around to patching the stupid thing... My manual save is still good but the numbers are all way off... last 'new game' I started my 1st 'save' was listed as #67...
