Saving right before dying
« on: December 21, 2006, 02:17:48 PM »
Does anyone else do this? XD I try to press F7 but I press F5 and just press enter a bunch. And it always seems to happen when I get really close to the end of a game! XD There's just that small space of time before the death message comes up and it drives me crazy. :P

I've done it! It's horrible... I did it once in KQ6 when I was almost done and for some reason I had only one save.

It's always fun loading a save to find that you've saved it right before you die. :P

Especially if you don't save in the right places.  I've done that often in KQV, by doing stuff like keeping one save.
  Once I saved going into the Inn outside the village IN KQ5 as long as I possibly could, then I went into it without a hammer, and saved the game!  Needless to say, I was very trapped, after playing through half the game (it's a good thing V is my favorite, and I enjoy playing it so much).
  This is why I usually fill up my save spaces on just one game if I don't know it very well.

Yeah. I usually only keep one save slot (especially when it's a game I know, like KQIV. XD) As you guys can imagine, it was INCREDIBLY frustrating when I saved right after I fell off the stairs. :P

Well, as I'm sure you guys can imagine, it was incredibly frustrating trying to navigate the stairs. XD

I've never had this problem before. :P I always use multiple slots anyway. (makes it easier to die when you want to XD )

But even if you do, you still have to go back a bit if you mess up, to a different save file, right? :P

What gets me is hitting the restore button and not realizing it, restoring a game when I thought I was saving over it. :-\

That is annoying, especially right after a particularly hard part of the game. :-\

Isn't that the truth. I still remember being up during the middle of the night playing Wing Commander and I accidentally hit the restore instead of save after a near impossible mission......I still don't know how my folks, across the hall, didn't hear me scream "NOOOOOOOO!!!' :'(

I saved directly before getting a "Oops, you did something we weren't expecting" message once. :wall: I opened that game years later and still don't know what it is I did. ::)

Well, that's adventure games for you! I hate it in KQ3 when your about to go down the mountain, and then all of a sudden, you fall, and have to start all over again if you saved at the beginning of the mountain... It is very, very frustrating... And even if I do save, I end up dead to begin with! XD And MoE is so annoying in that regard. Not saving often=dead connor in no time... And yes, I regret to say that I've have started playing Mask of Eternity again... As of a few months back...
