Re: "Error Saving" Game crashes

                Hey!
 
 I used to have Bloodlines on my computer but it was a downloaded version, now I bought the game on Ebay...Anyway it's not working, right after I finish my new character sheet and it starts loading "The embrace", it crashes and this is what it says:
 
 ERROR SAVING!
 A map change error. Not enough disk space on drive. Now the game exits.
 
 I never got that message before, what does it mean? I DO have enough space on my hard drive...Please help!

  •                 Are you playing on a windows administrator account? Give that a try if you aren't.

                    If you have enough space and on admin account then I can't really help you out.
     
     Here is the Activision's support suggestion.

                    It might be the page file.
     To increase the page file size, right click my computer, select Properties, select the Advanced tab, under Performance go to Settings, select Advanced, and under Virtual RAM you can increase your page file size. Running the settings 1536 (minimum) and 3072 (maximum) is fine for me, though I don't really know what's the real minimum.

                    It is certainly worth looking at the pagefile side of things.

                    Hey,
     
     I tried that page size file thing, but it didn't work, I still get the same message. Could it be related to my anti-virus or spybot program at all??
     
     If not, then it means I should return the game back to the seller on Ebay... sad

     I think it has nothing to do with antivirus/spybot.
     
     Good luck on returning it to seller on Ebay. It's your responsibilty to ensure your pc can play it. Not theirs.

                    Aside from the link Moocha posted, this is about all I could find on your problem.

                    I have had this problem too.
     Finally found a solution today.
     Turns out the game was having problems with my SATA Raid0 Harddrive setup, so after I installed the game on a "normal" drive, it runs as it should.
     
     My guess is that this is due to the copy protection SW included in the game, that thinks that the Raid array or the driver are trying to interfere with it.
     
     I am guessing that some disk compression tools would give the same problems.
     
     So if you have an oldfashioned drive available in your system, you may want to try installing to that.
     
     What does that mean and how do I check to see if that's the problem?

                    What does that mean and how do I check to see if that's the problem?  
     
     I'l assume you're using win xp.
     
     To see if you have a SATA drive/controller:
     
       Click Start, then click Control Panel.
       Click performance and Maintenance, then click System.
       Click on the Hardware tab ,then Click Device Manager.
       Expand the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers category.
       
     Do you see anything that says SATA?
     
     To see if you are using disc compression:
     
     In Windows Explorer, right click your C drive and select Properties from the
     menu.
     On the General page,see if "Compress drive to save space" is checked.
     
     Next, open your C drive and right click the vtm-b root folder.
     Select Properties from the menu.
     On the General page, click on the Advanced button.
     Make sure "Compress contents to save disk space" is unchecked.

                    Hey,
     
     My game works now. I went in Safe mode, right-clicked on the Activision folder, went to properties and in the security tab I checked "Full control"...
     I had to because it wouldn't let me install the latest patch otherwise.
     Anyway, thanks guys!  kiss
