    I have the game Nox by Westwood Studios, and I must say, it is the best action/rpg i have ever seen...

    One problem though... My brother saved over my *up to Chapter 7* game and so I kinda lost interest...

    Wonder though... Whenever I create a new game and I get to a point where it automatically saves, it saves over any previous AUTOSAVE game I had... Anyone know a fix to this? I am seriously thinking about writing Westwood and asking them to release a patch that will change the entire save system... Each game has *it's own* AUTOSAVE folder... Like \AUTOSAVE1, etc

    Any ideas?

    Regards

    Hiya

    I don't know if this can be done, as this is how the software was developed. Most games use the save over the original settings policy, as when you have a great energy level, you want to save it there and then. Rooting around for your saved game isn't what a lot of people want.
    Mind you, a few games that I used to play enabled the use of the 'choose the Save file', but it just depends on the developer.

    However, there are some patches available:

    and this is their support site:
