Re: *** Save Data Not Compatible?

It happens on Injustice 2 as well. It's pretty much just telling you to keep your game updated.

Re: *** Save Data Not Compatible?

Same thing here and I'm on PS4. I'm kinda worried about losing my progress. I have uploaded the save file though, just in case. I hope this gets fixed soon on an upcoming patch.

Re: *** Save Data Not Compatible?

Thanx. I'll give that a shot. So far nothing bad has happened, but I'm still getting the same warning message every time I quit or boot up; so I'll try what u said & hopefully it'll work.

Save data completely deleted/missing/incompatible

I have put 20 hours into this game so far and get minor freezes however this time it totally froze my pc and I was forced to manually reboot with the power button on my pc.

 

Upon restart I find my 20 hours are missing as my save is incompatible.

 

I am running the same version and everything. If this makes me start from scratch i can see me not playing again; totally ruined experience 

 

please help!

lost all my progress

I just lost all my progress 

 

my game file got deleted somehow, I started the game and the only option I had was START NEW GAME, the message  "Your save data is incompatible with previous updates of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. If you remove this game update, your save data will be lost" was appearing but I read online that it was just a bug but now my game file is gone and I had plenty of hours invested, Talion level was 22.

 

you can see below that it says that I'm level 22 but 0% complete please help. I'm on PS4

Re: deleted save

Same thing happened to me today. I was level 46...

 

Lost my preorder bonus. About 10 legendary orcs. Getting pretty pissed at this game to be honest. I was super excited for it too.

Re: *** Save Data Not Compatible?

Just happened to me. Had a power outage while playing, when the power came back, my save slot is returned to 0.0% and my level 58 Talion is gone. Of course, everything in the market is as the same as it was, everything else is simply gone. Will see if WB/Monolith have a solution for this but I'm not holding my breath.

Lost saved

So I have completely lost my save file for Shadow of War on my PS4. It started with an update that playstation had about a week ago. My game crashed about 3 times on me after this update. It happened twice during a mission loading screen and once in-game. Each time it would be stuck in a loading screen with the animation on the bottom right. It was so bad that I had to unplug the system to restart it each time. After that I stopped playing the game until they came out with another update the next day. When I started the game and was at the main menu a message saying that my saved data is incompatable with previous updates of the game popped up. I had no continue story option, only start new game. I looked everywhere on my storage and couldn’t find an old save. I’m about 80% done with the game and I have several trophies as well to prove my progression. If there’s anyway I could restore my save and progress, it would be greatly appreciated. Much thanks,
-Zack

Re: *** Save Data Not Compatible?

My PS4 turned off because of power randomly and I was really far in and I went back into the game and I had lost all my progress and it is making me start a new game.

Re: *** Save Data Not Compatible?

Well my save has gone, game doesn't recognise it on or offline, it's definitely there. This happened after I added my code for the sword of Dominion. Now it's all gone to 5hit. Cleared cache, unplugged, 're installed game nothing... (Xb1)
