Won't load my profile
My computer crashed (video card problems, i.e. an excuse to get a new card :)) while I was playing. I swapped out my old video card, booted up and now Psychonauts isn't able to find my old save.

It starts up like it did the first time, before I'd created a profile. I don't have an option to continue or load a game.

So I start a game, and try to load from in game. There are no save games shown.

I checked the folder that has save games and my old save game is still there.


Edit: Doing a little research. Looks like a few people have also had similar issues. My old profile saves are there, but the save games have been overwritten. Now what do I do?

Howdy. Are you on PC?
JustShy Aug 17, 2013 @ 4:04am 
Yes, I got it from Steam.

Can you check if you have a user ID folder containing saves in this location:


If so, do you also have save files in the main Doublefine folder?
JustShy Aug 21, 2013 @ 8:49am 
There isn't a Doublefine folder.

edit: Searched my entire harddrive for a Doublefine folder and didn't find one. Thank you for taking the time to try to help with this.

No worries.

It's possible you can't find it because the AppData folder is hidden. To get there, hit the Windows + R to open a Run box. Type in '%appdata%' and hit Enter to go to the folder. Try to navigate to the location of the Doublefine folder.

Still no Doublefine folder.

Gah, I mixed up my games. For Psychonauts please check here:

The profile files are still there. The saves were over-written.

Hi JustShy. This is a strange issue that we can't quite nail down. If you delete a profile folder (such as Profile 3), begin a new game with profile 3, and play through in profile 3, can you successfully load save files and continue after you restart the game?
JustShy Aug 28, 2013 @ 3:29pm 
Yes, I started a profile on the second spot and it works normally.
JustShy Aug 28, 2013 @ 3:33pm 
Also, when I first checked the folders after this happened, it had new profile files in the Profile 1 folder, and the Profile files from the previous game, but the save files were reset.
