Issue: Serious Sam 3 fails to load save games
I installed SS3 again today and wanted to continue with the campaign, but when I try to load the game an error pops up and this shows up in the terminal:


ERR: '$/home/pfannkuchen/Steam/userdata/23817124/41070/local/SeriousSam3/SavedGames/0000000005_QuickSave.sav' isn't signed with sufficient credentials (LOCAL)

so what happened with those?

Thanks in advance!

What exactly do you mean by "Installed SS3 again"? Have you been copying the saves around? The savegames will only work in the save game flavor (default vs moddable), and they will only work for the same account (in order to prevent leaderboard sharing).
pfannkuchen_gesicht Dec 7, 2012 @ 11:00am 
I had it uninstalled for hdd-space reasons and now that I have space again I reinstalled it again with the same account and started it with the same default version.
However, now that I think about it more, it's possible that I made the save games with the non-beta version and now I downloaded the beta version because it runs better.
Is that a possible reason?
AlenL Dec 8, 2012 @ 8:54am 
Beta versions shouldn't matter. Have the save files been left on the disk all the time, or have you backed them up and restored?
pfannkuchen_gesicht Dec 8, 2012 @ 9:01am 
they were left on the disk all the time.
AlenL Dec 8, 2012 @ 12:40pm 
I've reported this as a problem. Can you please send complete log where this is visible?

I couldn't post the complete log at all, but I just removed the log-entries which referred to graphics setting changes

I have exactly the same problem. I never had a problem loading saved games before. I'll try deleting the last or the last few and see if the problem persists. I'm running Steam for Ubuntu 12.10 (Kubuntu 12.10, KDE 4.10, Catalyst 13.2 beta 3, AMD 7660D graphics).
muxol Feb 16, 2013 @ 10:04am 
After deleting some saved games, I was able to quickly load one and play from there. Saving games thereafter worked, and after having restarted, everything seems to be ok.
AlenL Feb 17, 2013 @ 12:45pm 
pfannkuchen, this looks like the savegame 0005 is really damaged. Could you please try to backup those files (both .tga and .sav) somewhere and delete them from the savegame folder? Perhaps you have some other save that is fine....
pfannkuchen_gesicht Feb 18, 2013 @ 4:32am 
they loaded fine for some time and suddenly they stopped working and crashed the game. Even if a save-game is corrupt it shouldn't crash the game at all.
Anyways, all saves are affected, can't load any of these. IIRC it happened after a game update.
AlenL Feb 18, 2013 @ 6:43am 
Hm, yes, you are right. They shouldn't crash the game. Actually, they don't really crash it, but seems they cause a fatal error. But it's same difference. Which is strange, because, there are explicit checks to prevent this from happening. Can you please upload one or more of those (together with .tga files) somewhere so we can examine the data in them?
