Reverting Save State (Bug?)

Post by Thorti on Sat Feb 01, 2014 1:29 am

Hey guys!

I was playing untwinked assassin and in one hard run managed to get quite far on terror (doesn't matter)...
I saved the game and as I returned, I was at the starting point again..., all items I found recently gone and no waypoints, no quests... Odd: While no waypoints, all the areas I had been to in that run were revealed (playing offline).

I don't care about the progress lost, but at least about a really good atmg-shield which in early game is quite hard to get untwinked  Sad 

Can anyone tell what might have gone wrong, or something?

PlugY bug. type /save before you leave every game to ensure that your character is up to date.

Nah sometimes the autosave doesn't work and your characters get rollback. I type /save every time I get a good item or get ready to save and exit the game to minimize losing anything good.

A question about that...
what does this command actually do? When i type it in and enter in console, it is taken as a simple message and saves do not change.

I've never heard of this bug before, thanks for bringing it to light for me even if it's quite unfortunate for you. I hope you manage to find a good ATMG shield.

Good luck!  Salut

When you type it in nothing should happen visually. If it isn't working then your character will "say" it in the messages menu as if you were talking to yourself. All it does is force the autosave function of diablo II that happends when you change acts or leave the game (supposed to). This is with the PlugY tool of course. Without it you are just screwed and might get rollbacks sometimes Sad

Yeah, it's a weird bug but oh well. I've never encountered it before and I can't remember the last time I played diablo without plugy.

would it automatically update files save-folder? I controlled changing dates of the concerning files before and after typing in "/save" (with plugy on) and nothing changed.
What might cause it to not work?
