Oh yeah and another question,
Are all the saves literally gone? Or is it just a "mask" of sorts preventing you from saving a new game-and when I say mask, I mean does it look like they're gone, and reappear with a reset. I used to have a similar save scare with Dark Forces on PC when it looked like it wouldn't save but turned out it did.
Reason I ask is because of a post from another thread:
<i>now this is nice ... if something happens to get a npc into a loop. say, one of your team mates force pushes someone into a wall and they get stuck there. the game tells you "your xbox doesn't have enough free blocks to save games" also, it doesnt display your current saved games in ether load or save screen. you need to reset.</i>
Keyword I see is display.
