Michael Böhm shared this bug 16 months ago
Solved

I have run into a problem when i try to quick-load/save i get an Error (Game is alredy saving) and the Auto saves dont work as well.

But i can still save when i exit the world

EDIT: I cannot quick-load/save in other Worlds too

I can confirm this as well. The game refuses to save with the "Game is already saving" (not only on quick load /save) when I try a normal save. It started just today - yesterday it was all fine with the same version 1.187.088. Not sure what happened but I lost 4h off gameplay (no biggy these things happen) I just wonder how I could miss the warning - it looks like the game did not save and autosave for 4h and I still somehow missed the warning - very suspicious :).


I tested it a bit and it seams the game starts to save the first time you hit save and after that it is stuck.


I hope it helps a bit

Happens to me. I got the log file immediately after I get this message.

Hello!

Does the issue still occur in your game? I just retested it and it seems to work fine on current version. Only time I see the message "Game is already saving" is a few moments after I press Save or during autosave. Can anyone confirm or disprove?

Thank you!

Can confirm still occurring in 1.187.089 today unless you pushed an update in the last 6 hours :D

Game doesn't auto save and trying to save returns 'Game is already saving'.

Conversely I can use Save As instead and that works perfectly fine, try to use 'Save' again afterwards still doesn't work and returns the same message.

Again one of those lovely intermittent issues, I can't seem to 'force' it to happen. I can tell you it happens after a 'period' of time, maybe 10-15 mins?

If I was to hazard a guess I would say its something in the autosaving function thats getting stuck in a loop of some type. Maybe its the second auto save, some sort of iteration problem?

I'll submit the world here if I can get it to happen, problem is I can reload that same world and it won't happen straight away as it seems to happen later on.

I didn't found the reliable steps to reproduce the bug.Sometimes when I load my world I notice the Auto-Save does not work and when I do manual Save I get "Game is already saving". Even after I try again in some time. Then I exit the world (and confirm save) and reload - game was saved correctly at the expected state, I can continue. I just lose ~5 minutes until my potato PC reloads all the mods and decides to load the world.

Sometimes after reload the (Auto)Save works, sometimes not.

And sometimes I don't notice the problem, but when SE crashes, I find out my last save was "manual" from last exit of the world.


I didn't noticed whether the save is broken from the load or after some autosave.

The bug is still alive... Ver.:1.190.009

This just happened to me tonight, really confusing and a lost over 2 hours of work on my base when the game crashed. (report log sent)


Thought it might be some issue with the 1.190.1 release that just dropped but it isn't. Looks like this has been around for a while. Maybe needs a bit more attention and effort to reproduce and fix, as the gameplay is pretty much flawless now but if saves don't work then that is very frustrating. I built so much stuff and it all gone. :(


Anyway, game is fantastic on the whole.

This needs changing from SOLVED status!

I reported this also last week; today I stumbled across what appears to be the reason that was reported by another... The error seems related to Nanite Factory - specifically something with the Area Beacon. If you are seeing this consistently and you are using Nanite Factory go to an area well away from the NCF and any beacons and see if the issue follows you. If you suddenly get more stable game play then that's probably the culprit. As soon as you see the error use the Windows Key on your keyboard and open the Task Manager - select Space Engineers and select ' Analyze Wait Chain ' -- you may see something to the effect of .Net clr.dll ...


Not sure what the fix would be - something on the Nanite factory side...

Fixed! That was the clue I needed. Thanks Michael. I'm running a Nanite Factory and I had the same thing since the last SE update. The game would give the error saving because it's already saving and wouldn't exit. I had to kill it from task manager. If you go to the Steam Community site and look at the add for the mod, the mod team put some text at the top about the mod possibly not updating and how to fix it. Basically you delete a file and a folder and start the game again to let it pull the new update. Make sure you kill it from task manager so that you know it's not running. Here is the link to the add.

Here is the text...

If there are issues, try **Delete the old mod file in mods directory %appdata%\Roaming\SpaceEngineers\Mods\219757726.sbm, it may have downloaded update incorrectly. And also delete the mod id folder in *Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\244850\ delete this folder = 219757726 -- if it is there.

This worked for me. Thanks Nanite mod team!
