Accessing Older Autosaves

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I've just started playing OpenRCT2 on my Mac, and was wondering if there's any way of accessing older autosaves. I was on Year 3 on a scenario which was being autosaved automatically. I opened a sandbox park to build a roller coaster to later place in the scenario, but when I was on the sandbox park, it autosaved several times, and now my old ones are gone. Just wondering if there's a way of getting them back?

Thanks all!

Unless they're in the recycling bin (which I don't expect) are backed up with another automated tool, there's no way to get them back. Autosaves are meant as backup in case of a crash or data corruption. If you want to save a game for later, save normally.

I think, if you go to the autosave/ directory, it will have previous autosaves. Just go to the one with the date/time that you are looking for, then save it normally to save you the trouble of digging through the autosave/ directory.

The autosave folder is not backed up automatically, so make sure to save your parks! Autosave is mainly intended to not loose changes when the game crashes, not to automatically save the game for you.

Earlier this week a new option was added that increases the number of autosaves to keep. This is 10 by default, but you can set it as high as you want. Note that this could potentially take up a lot of space on your hard disk.
