So I got the game for Christmas, and WAS extremely addicted for about 12 hours. I absolutely love the game, but the other day when I tried loading it up for my girlfriend to play, the game was stuck on loading screen. I've tried everything from installing,
clearing cache, uninstalling, deleting saves, and I've even tried just waiting for it to load but after letting it sit for 5 hours, I just turned it off. I'm wondering if it's the disc or it's the Xbox. Please help ASAP!
I had a similar problem. The game always froze when entering the ratway vaults.
I had to load an earlier save that was made before the freezing started then enter the vaults. Once I entered the vaults with the old save I reloaded the save I was having the freezes with then tried entering the vaults again and this time it worked. It
This happens on this game as well as the Fallout titles. To fix, do the following.
1. Load up the game and select to start a new game.
2. Let the game start and when you're in the opening cinimatic where you're in the cart being taken to Helgen, as soon as you can, bring up the menu and load your stuck save game from inside your new game.
For some reason, this normally fixes it and the game will load from inside your new game. I believe it's a problem with something that sticks in the games cache (not the consoles) that is cleared by starting a new game. Give it a shot and see if that helps
We have been having the same difficulty today when we tried going back to our Lvl 7 character....so, we cleared the cache; downloaded the patch and are now in the process of using this trick... we at least got the game to load...but our saved game was not
showing as an option...so we quit, and then tried to upload the saved game - we only have one of the saved games in our list as we deleted the others thinking we didn't need them
Word of warning: NEVER turn off the console without quitting to the main menu. It will corrupt the save and make the game laggy. I fixed it by creating a new save, hitting the wait button to create an autosave over the
corrupted file, quitting, and then restarting from the autosave. The game worked fine afterwards. It also helps to not be in action (pulling a bowstring, smithing, shouting, etc.) when you save your game. Also, saving in graphic-intensive environments, such
as falmer dungeons, can cause problems. It really comes down to the amount of data your xbox can process at a time. Good luck!
