Mass Effect 1 save game error

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

Hello,

 

I've recently decided to reinstall the ME trilogy and launched the first game however, whenever i try to save the game it gives me an error saying that game cannot be saved, i've attached the screenshot, however, once i click ok, the message says that the game has been saved, that is not the case, the save folder in my Documents folder is empty.

 

I have tried the usual routine, repaired the game, reinstalled the game and origin, none of those helped.

 

Side note, i also have ME1 on Steam, it does not have the above issue.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Update* ME Andromeda has the same issue, game cannot be saved

Try to run Origin and the game as Administrator.

 

If that don't works clear your temp files:

  • Press the Windows key and "R" at the same time
  • Into the new window, type or copy & paste:  "%temp%"   (Without the quotes.) > hit "ENTER"
  • Now your Windows Explorer should have brought you to the "C:\Users\>your user name<\AppData\Local\Temp" folder. > Delete all files and folders in it.
    (If some files or folders can't be deleted, reboot and try again.)

Then clear your Origin cache.
All settings in Origin (only in Origin not in the games) are back to default settings after this.)

 

  • Close Origin completely.
    (right click on the Origin symbol in the task bar > close)
  • Press the Windows key and "R" at the same time.
  • Type or copy and paste "%ProgramData%/Origin" (without quotes) into the new window > hit ENTER
  • Delete all the files and folders in the Origin folder, except for the "LocalContent" folder.
    (The "LocalContent" folder must remain untouched.)
  • Press the Windows key and "R" at the same time.
  • Type or copy and paste "%AppData%" (without quotes) into the new window > hit ENTER
  • Now your Windows explorer should have brought you to your "C:\Users\>your user name<\AppData\Roaming" folder.
  • Delete the "Origin"  folder inside the "Roaming" folder.
  • In the address bar of your Windows explorer click on "AppData".
  • Open the "Local" folder.
  • Delete the "Origin"  folder inside the  "Local" folder.
  • Restart your PC. > test
