I'm having trouble in restoring save files in oblivion. Everytime I load the saved game, I constantly get an error and returning me back from the start. I don't want it to be like this. What is the real problem about this? Any suggestions on how to fix this? Do I need to reinstall it again? Please help me:(, thank you

First of all you make sure one thing that your file is RAR (Roshal Archive), or try: downloading a windows 7 Modio error then repair tool and installing it. This will scan your computer for errors in Modio and repair them. By doing this you can solve the problems.

Hi Gregory!

I think that this problem is caused by set or order of modifications loaded. You see, having a slightly different order of modifications will cause the problem. To fix this problem manually, I suggest that you use an editor such as Wyre Bash (http://wryemusings.com/Wrye%20Bash.html ). Furthermore, probably the main cause of this problem is how Bethsaida assigned their universal i.d numbers which is called Form IDs based on the load order. I hope this helped you out.

If you play the game “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion” but you cannot get your save file to work, first, you need to check if the save file is corrupt or not. To do this, start the game and load the file normally. If the save file is corrupt, you may receive “This save game is corrupt”.

After this, the game will either go back to the saved game selection screen or exit. To fix the problem with the save game file, you need to modify the latest quicksave because it is not possible to fix a corrupted save file. The quicksave is the best option because it is the closest point in the game to where you were in the corrupted file.

To do this, start Windows Explorer then navigate to “C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\My Games\Oblivion\Saves”. But if the save files are not located in this location, try doing a system search and find the folder. Once you located the folder, look for the file called “quicksave.bak” then rename it to without quotes “quicksave.ess”. If you are prompted to overwrite the file, click to overwrite the original “quicksave.ess” file.

Though this may set you back in game time a bit, you will be as close as possible to where you left off.
