Play Oblivion? Please help Old Man Astro :)

OK. I moved my whole Oblivion folder to an external HDD, thinking it was still going to be playable(as I have done with NWN and COD2) It is playable but my saved games semeed to have disappeared. If it was on a different folder on my system HDD, it is long gone as I reformatted that drive

My questions/request :

1. Could my saved games still exist ? Where are they actually stored ?

2. Can someone please kindly donate a saved game to me? I want a strong character. My Drow girl is(was) a bit weak and I dont have much time before NWN2 to have any fun in Oblivion A drow preferred but anyone wielding a sword/axe will do. No spellcasters plz, I prefer detsroying my foes face to face

thanks in advance / mtfbwya

Lawl at you...
I could give you the save files for a lvl 18 orc (which i decided to train with a sword and heavy armour) BUT
i'm at school ATM, and i've headed straight to work afterwards till 9'. then, my lovely 1 hour bike ride back home will leave me til 10, and then theres the matter of cooking my dinner and doing some much needed homework. So, i should be able to bag you it tommorow if no one has helped you by then (if i can find it, i've not got the skillz i would like to think i have with these files swapping things, so you may have to help me on this one.)

Hmmm, the best I can get you is a Level 3 Male Imperial Knight or a Level 6 Female Khajiit Nightblade(all her spells involve touching the target). Want one of them?

thanks for the offer Alkonium, but this isnt an episode of Queer Eye, I want to CRUSH SKULLS with steel damnit !! [/toughguy]

Still, send me the knight if you like. I can have a gander at him and compare to what others may send. Though SRs lvl 18 Orc sound tough as guts You'll need to refresh me on what file it needs to go in

SR has guessed the email correctly

The save games are locate by default in MyDocuments/My Games

You can always use the cheat console to level your new char up.

If you want a natural level up result, I suggest usigng the "modpcs <skill> <nn>" (example: modpcs marksman 10 ) instead of the modpca (mod attribute) and the setlevel <nn> which will mess up your stats.

I also suggest that you do it in steps to get the max beonus (5) to your attributes when you level up. To get the max bonus, you have to level a major skill 10 times or a minor skill 15 times.

Instead of using the console, you could also make a quest script in the cs to level up all your skills at once. I could make you a sample script tonight if you wish.

Your savegames could still exist, even if you reformatted that drive. It depends on how you did that...

Just get a tool capable of returning deleted files... like the Tuneup utilities 2006.

But if you really formatted your drive, overwriting it with "0"s there is no hope.

thanks D33 but as the games were in the my docs folder, this means they are gone. I'd have to go through the whole biz of making a character. Im now hoping to benefit from someone elses hard earned skillz..it my only option

You could also check tessource.net: they have loads of save games with good looking chars (and bad looking ones too). There's even a Mr. Bean savegame I think Then you can give your char the skills you want with the cheat console.

A Mr. Bean savegame? I like Mr. Bean, but I won't get Oblivion just to see that. Hope your problem is solved Astro.

Yup! Found it: http://www.tessource.net/files/file.php?id=4457 Too bad the gallery isn't working. I remember it was very close to the "real life" model

OK, whilst everyone has been playing around with Mr Bean Ive tracked a lvl 26 knight who is kicka$$sery. After playing for 20 mins, I remembered why my enjoyment of Oblivion lapsed, and was not suprised that my savegames went missing.
Ive since gone sprinting back to the goodness that is NWN:Hordes of the Underdark.
If anyone came near my NWN savegames, they'd have to engage me in a fight to the death

Oblivion, the 90210 of RPGs...pfft. sure the hair is nice, but the storytelling - meh

*immerses in the Forgotten Realms, awaits NWN2 to make it to Oz*

Thanks for the help and hints though folks

How do you get the controllers to work adapt to a pc? I've heard rumors of xbox controller-pc merging, but being away from both said items right now it's hard for me too see what connections i need. Enlighten me, oh great astro?

lolz...there are many wonderful pc controllers out there. As I am so used the PS2 type my pc controller is exactly the same as one, except its for pc and plugs in via usb. xp has a calibration utility, as do many games. Of course, the game you want to play needs to support joystick/controllers so you need to check that first. I got my controller working in Oblivion...Im back at meh stage now though NWN2 c'mon damnit !!!

Bu could i actually connect my xbox controller straight to my PC? From memory, i remember the secondary adaptor (just before the xbox console connector) looking similar to the input of r keyboard/mouse. Do i just stick the controller in instead of the keyboard/mouse and hope it works?

Be careful when moving the files of save games around. I did that and found that Autosave no longer worked. So if you are dependant on Autosave, beware.


Waking up.
