I have installed Chaos; Head on my pc and applied the RC1 patch to it. My locale is set to Japan so the game runs fine. The only problem is that when I save my game and exit the save file disappears. I have tried various solutions to this problem including: Running as admin, running in xp service pack 2 compatibility, etc. The game appears to be saving to a temporary state because i am capable of loading the save file as long as I don't exit game. Any tips to get the save file to remain after closing the game are appreciated.

How about copying the save file after you save to flashdisk or othe media? Or maybe you don't install it rightly? Some part of the game maybe missing or corrupt.

That's the problem, i can't find the files in the ordinary place they would be. If i could locate the files that saved as I played it would be as simple as moving the files, but i cannot. I've ran searches of my pc for .npf files after saving, but to no avail.

Have you tried %appdata%?

That is where most visual novels that i've played saved, so i knew where that was and how chaos; head is supposed to be saving there. It just does not appear to be saving there, or anywhere.

There was that issue with being unable to save during the 7th chapter... iirc. But if it's still in the beginning then here you go:
- run as admin
- change the application's permissions (ppm on the file, "security" tab, "edit", and give it "full control")
- copy the entire game on a pen drive/external disc and try running C;H directly from it (if possible, on some other computer, just to check out whether the situation still occurs)
- reinstall the game, and apply the RC2 patch this time
One of the above should help you, I believe. Good luck.Last modified on 2011-10-21 at 23:12

I put it on another computer via flash drive and it saved properly.

I think i have to reinstall windows for my computer to save games. I have had this issue with other games as well as settings for games.
