I can barely go wherever on the web with out seeing one more wild, hilarious, or downright odd bug from Cyberpunk 2077. It’s a buggy sport, and developer CD Projekt Pink has already launched two hotfixes to try to shore up among the issues. One subject that’s beginning to pop up, although, isn’t humorous in any respect: some gamers are reporting that their Cyberpunk 2077 save information have gotten corrupted in the event that they exceed a sure file measurement (via Eurogamer).
In case your Cyberpunk 2077 save is corrupted, you’ll apparently see this immediate if you try to load up the sport: “saved data is damaged and cannot be loaded.” Right here’s what it appears to be like like:
Whereas it’s not clear what could be inflicting save information to be corrupted, it appears it may occur when the saves attain 8MB in measurement. Crossing that 8MB threshold is when the save file corrupted for one Redditor, in their testing. There are additionally a number of individuals on CD Projekt Pink’s boards reporting that their 8MB+ save information are corrupted.
In a GOG.com assist doc in regards to the corrupted saves immediate, CD Projekt Red says that “unfortunately the save is damaged and can’t be recovered.” To keep away from seeing the immediate, the corporate recommends utilizing an older save and to “keep a lower amount of items and crafting materials.”
Theoretically, in case your Cyberpunk 2077 save file is bigger than 8MB, you’ve invested dozens of hours into the sport and picked up a number of gadgets. If I had a corrupted save partly as a result of I picked up an excessive amount of stuff (in a sport that’s littered with stuff to choose up), I do know I’d be extraordinarily disillusioned.
CD Projekt Pink says within the save file measurement restrict “might be increased in one of the future patches” in the GOG.com support document. However even when that enhance occurs, the save information which are at the moment corrupted will stay so, the doc says. For those who are experiencing corrupted saves, a moderator on CD Projekt Pink’s official Cyberpunk 2077 forums has supplied some ideas on easy methods to load backup saves that you would be able to strive.
The studio has promised to launch two massive patches for Cyberpunk 2077 subsequent yr: one in January and one in February. Maybe the corporate will make modifications in these patches to assist forestall information from turning into corrupted. CD Projekt Pink didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark from The Verge.
