View Full Version : Help with Game Patches

I have been patching the game through the Game Shadow program that came with SHIII with very good results. However my saved games won't load and they just freeze my computer. I have to start a new campain with every patch. Any suggestions. Thanks

If you read the patch instructions, it states:

WARNING: New patches modify game data and in some cases, the saves that are made while in missions will not load properly. We highly recommend, before installing a patch, that €œall the Captains should return to base€ or to load a previous in base save (after install) in order to avoid possible problems.
Did you return to base before installing the patch or did you at least load from an "in base" point in your career? If not, loading from a mid-patrol point after patching will cause problems like the ones you're experiencing.
