Game not saving

  Go to:
I use Lutris and when I start a game, I can save it but then when I open the game again, there is no save file. I searched my system and apparently, the save file is simply not saved.

Did you check on protondb if others have had the same problem?

Maybe try a different proton/wine version in Lutris?
no one has similar problems. Which different wine version should I try?
damarrin 6 Jul
A newer one than the one you're using?
I'm using the latest version (lutris-fshack-7.2-x86_64)

Try having it use your system wine ( or a standard wine)? I've had some weird issues in the past with "custom" wine builds doing weird things.
I tried using system wine. It didn't work.

Well, then, maybe don’t use Arch?
