Maximum number of saves per game?

6 replies 26 views Edited Aug 10, 2010

Why is there a limit of 99 saves per game? I really don't understand that limit?

 

For example, in adventure games like FF13 that i'm currently playing, i want to be able to jump through the story later on, play nice bosses etc, but the 99 saves get used up pretty fast when you're making new saves on every check point.

because the game engine will only allow that many saves and they don't want u to fill your harddrive with 99 game saves.

Archiving some of your less fequently used game saves to a USB storage device might work as an alternative.

I thought I had alot when I has 20. I just saved at the beginning of each chapter and a couple select areas.  I don't think there were 99+ areas or bosses I wanted to revisit.

The limit is determined by the game. I think I got up to over 400 saves on Bioshock. :smileytongue:

Game 2: Giants 9-0 Rangers         Game 5: Giants 3-1 Rangers                             2010 Champs!
Game 3: Rangers 4-2 Giants
Go Giants!

Oh.. i guess that's great, but it seems the default is 99?.. Hope future games will set this really high..

 

Well, i don't know what good saving points are before i've finished the game, for example, in FF13, you save, then there's a boss or a prerendered movie, there's no way you would know that in advance, i save every chance i get :smileytongue:
