The game autosaves pretty frequently, basically after every small run. The bad thing, is that it overwrites each save as you go along, so you must manually copy the saves; but at least you can do that from inside the game.

As usual, a game receives a significant update days after I've finished it.

Thats not quite right about the ovewrite . When you click to load a game, there is a REWIND option, when you select it…you then get all the previous save points as well. You can rewind to any save point in the game this way, they also ask you if you want to copy your current savepoint before doing so. I think this prevents it from being erased when you do rewind. I know I used it a few times .

I finished the game on the hardest level as a shaman, I clocked in over 30 hours on steam (Although I was probably afk for 6-7 hours of that time…). I might try another playthrough, tho Im disapointed that they seem to be making the game easier from what I read on those patch notes. Also, did anyone else notice that the Double Tap skill for the rifle didn't seem to be working? I wonder if its due to the one I was using, or if it was a bug.

It didn't work for pistols either.

Why do you think they're making it easier? I actually thought they're making it harder from the notes. Bunch of weapons now do less damage or have less bullets.

If they don't fix this user made campaigns will be limited to how they build "levels". You essentially can't build big levels because the player will lose too much progress if they die. I think this is the biggest issue with SRR.

I believe someone on the official forum has already demonstrated a work around to allow a save-anywhere system.

Yeah, but it's messy as all hell because it requires a lot of extra triggers. It's understandable why HBS didn't try to go that route for Dead Man's Switch.

I did notice while playing one of the UGC "Lost Lamb" that the creator lets you move freely in and out of buildings (and the game autosaves every time you do so). Initially I wondered why HBS didn't do this in DMS, but I'm guessing this could lead to problems with triggers not firing / re-firing, etc. Lost Lamb is short and still a WIP so it's hard to tell how this would hold up in a longer campaign.

I played through the entire game without encountering a single bug, but maybe I was lucky. I did really enjoy it for its combat and story, but the campaign was a bit on the short side . The auto saving did not become annoying until the latter third of the game, when the battles became more challenging.

The fact that we have to use a work around to save anytime we want is a bit ridiculous. Devs have to add that with a patch. I remember VtM: Redemption was released with an autosave system like this. But devs added that feature with a latest patch.

Yeah. I have symapthy for the desire to play it simple and safe, but here (and in some other places) they went too far. I really hope they patch that.

Well if they make the weapons slightly less effective, that'll apply to both sides so it's a wash.
