Settings won't save
Any time i try to change screen resolution or language the game says it needs to restart to update settings, and when i run the game again the settings aren't saved. eg. back to windowed mode...

What am i doing wrong?

Weird. The settings get saved to C:\Users\{user name}\Documents\My Games\The last remnant\RushGame\Config in Windows 7. Are those files changing when you save?

when i try yo save my always fails....... any idea???

strange , you can set the resolution in the ini file. I think you can set everything in there but there's a lot of options . But sorting out resolution for a start would get you going .

The save games are saved right near the settings so your save game and settings problems are related. Something might be really wrong with your user directory.

I have tried so many times to change permissions in that folder, run as admin, reinstall the game completely. Nothing works. It seems that this game WILL NOT WRITE any new information. It doesn't create a new settings code when they are changed, and it WILL NOT SAVE under any circumstances. Please, we can't be the only ones with this issue. I'm running Windows 8 with way more power than needed.

So does the folder listed above exist at all? What users have permissions to it?

The whole point of the Documents folder and subdirectories is to give you a place where you can always read/write files. If you don't have access to your own Documents folder then something has gotten really screwy with your operating system.

The thing is I moved my default Installation folder for games on Steam to my D;\ drive, since my C drive has gotten full. However, it shouldn't be an issue. I have full permissions and I've made myself the owner of all that drive. I tried running both steam and TLR with admin permissions to no avail. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the file path for EVERYTHING about the game, including save files and settings is "D:\My Documents\Games\SteamApps\common" under which the installation creates a folder named The Last Remnant. Then it creates the folders we know of: config. It does NOT create a save folder because it never saves. Maybe it is searching for a "\Users\SoulScratcher\MyDocuments\MyGames\" path to write this stuff to?

I've got all my Steam games on my D drive, too, that's no problem... errr, normally. What's this "D:\My Documents" business? Did you try to make a hard link from your user documents folder to the D drive or something?

I don't know anymore lol Called Square and after half an hour of being pretty helpful, none of the solutions worked. I'm blaming it on Windows 8

Trying to get a refund

You would probably know if you did that - you have to go to a command prompt and give it some pretty cryptic commands to pull that kind of thing.

1. Is your C drive actually full? As in "less than 1 gig free"? If so, that's probably your problem. Clean the thing out.

2. Does the C:\Users\{user name}\Documents\My Games\The last remnant folder exist? How about C:\Users\{user name}\Documents\My Games\The last remnant\RushGame? How about C:\Users\{user name}\Documents\My Games\The last remnant\RushGame\Config? If the last exists, can you make a text file in there just from Windows? If so, then you can just make your own ini files.

I've changed the regisrty, I've used cmd as admin to give the folder the correct properties, I created the folders that should exist. For some reason, regardless of which drive it's on, it will not write a thing. Also, it's day four since I submitted a ticket to steam about this and yet have no response. Disappointed.

Steam isn't broken - I don't know what they would do about it.

Let's see if this will work...

1. Delete the C:\Users\{user name}\Documents\My Games\The last remnant folder\RushGame\Config folder. (I just want to make sure whatever strange settings you might have are gone.)

2. If you go into your Steam directory for The Last Remnant, you'll find a RushGame\Config folder. COPY (don't move!) that folder to C:\Users\{user name}\Documents\My Games\The last remnant folder\RushGame and open the folder up. All the default setting files should be in there. Close the Steam copy of the directory - you don't want to touch that.

3. Rename all five files by changing "Default" to "Rush" (e.g. DefautEngine.ini becomes RushEngine.ini).

4. Start fiddling! RushEngine.ini has most of the settings. For instance, "StartupResolutionX" and "StartupResolutionY" tell the game what resolution to play at. Change that to something else and see if it changes how the game plays.

This game saving is a joke, to save, I just had to create manually the folder My games/The last remnant/RushGame/Config and /Save allowing game to both save the game, and the config, I hope it helps

I tried that. Thank you for the suggestion, but believe me, it just doesn't want to work on Windows 8 is my conclusion :(
