PS3 - NFS MW - Help restoring content after freeze/restart.

3 replies 134 views Edited Dec 27, 2012

Hello Everyone, 

 

I recently got my first ps3 and have been playing the NFS MW and been stacking up points and cars. Recently, the game suddenly froze during play and I had no other option but to restart the ps3 system, which I did and then I tried to play NFS MW and the game starts from the beginning :smileysad: 

Looks like all my previous work is lost during the freeze/restart. I would greatly appreciate if someone can help me restore things back to where it was. Please!!! Need your help and I appreciate in advance for your time and replies. 

 

- Andrew. 

 

(I hope I am asking the question in the right part of the forum)

|Welcome to the PS Community.

 

I don't have NFS so I don't know the game's save/auto-save policies. Assuming the game requires for you to manually save your progress & you failed to do so... there is your answer.

 

If the game does save your progress automatically then make sure you are loading your game's profile.

After you restarted the PS3, were you prompted with a message talking about "restoring" or any other messages?

I have NFSMW & I was under the impression that it had an auto-save feature, I say under the impression, I'm actualy 99% certain, it's just that I haven't played it for a while because of YLOD, but I'm sure it does, I never had to manually save my data.

Thanks guys and thanks for your replies. 

 

Xuchilbara - Normally the game auto saves and reads from the saved data during game play. I have restarted my ps3 before this (for non-nfs related reasons) but nothing ever happened to the NFS game. It was just fine. This time the ps3 froze during nfs game. I did check my software version and everything is up to date. 

 

BRIT-KO - Sadly there were no message prompts to restore data and that surprises me as well. 

 

Any feedback/comment? 

 

Thanks again.
