Hob failed to save status for three hours, no longer updating save files at all
Well, this is a TOTAL bummer. I spent a number of hours yesterday and last night playing. For the first several hours, no issues at all. Then for the last THREE HOURS of playing, it appears that although the save icon was showing on the screen perfectly normally, the game was totally failing to update the save files.
For the devs:
Played in one sitting without closing the program. Never exiting to Main Menu, this is all just one continuous game session.
Played for about ten hours, finishing at 11:30pm
The last save game was at 8:30pm. The ten saves I can see are each about a couple of minutes apart, and all between 8pm and 8:30pm.
Tried both 'Continue' and 'Load' but neither has any record of any activity post 8:30pm.
There were no changes in the PC setup during this time. Disk space is not an issue. No background updates that I know of. No changes in AV or other software during this time. No alerts triggered.
The only non-Hob activity was a switch to windows to pull up a Chrome browser window. That involved invoking the Task Manager, since Hob doesn't play nice with Alt-Tabbing, so the only way to get to Desktop was to Ctrl-Alt-Del and pull Task Manager, then I can mouse to the toolbar and start Chrome.
