I have Toy Story 3 (for PC) which is my first experience of a modern video game, and it's heavy going. Documention and basic online help is minimal to non-existent.

Anyway, it keeps prompting me to save a game, but how do I resume a saved game later on? It keeps starting from the beginning!

(I saw the same question on an online forum, which was unanswered after 3 years! There must be a way surely? Otherwise what is the point of the Save option?)

Try clicking "Load"
Click 'Load' where?

The start-up sequence is:

(Skip four logo-videos)
On TS3 Start/Quit screen I click 'Start'
I then have the Game Board in the background, but over that it's asking me to load a profile. I choose one I set up earlier.

I then have a game board where I can select 'Toy Box' or 'Train Rescue' (it took me a couple of hours to figure out why I didn't have any of the other games it shows on the back of the DVD box; I have to complete 'Train Rescue' first. It would have been nice if someone had mentioned it!).

Anyway, you click on Train Rescure, and you're always back at the start of that game (a high-speed real-time chase before you get to the more interactive game). I'm starting to feel like the guy in Groundhog Day!

Copied from GameGAQs (so please - don't shoot the messenger if it doesn't help... ) -
Go to My documents,check if there is a file called Disney Interactive Studios,if not create one,inside is another file called Toy Story 3,if it's not there create one,inside that there should be a file called savedata,if it's not there you know what to do.
now,inside that should be your save,if all those files weren't there i guess he didn't have a place to put the save in,now that you have created the route it should be okay

Using a temporary workaround of simply keeping the game running (paused and in the background if necessary), then save and load don't enter into it.

Although I don't think it helps when switching from one part of the game to another (for TS3, between 'story mode' and 'toy box mode'), and it doesn't allow more than one instance to run.

(I've noticed on some online screenshots that it works differently on other platforms: on PSP for example the start-up screen says 'new game'/'load game'; my PC version doesn't! Even if that might have been a different game, that's what is needed!)

Just to clarify, you *are* actually saving your game? Just because it has prompted you to save doesn't mean it is saving. There's every chance that it's not offering you the chance to load a game because there is no game saved.

I'm trying to avoid that expense! This is a game that a couple of kids here saw on youtube (in the form of walkthroughs) and wanted. The PC version was only 4.50.

Yes, it keeps asking me to save, or save and exit, otherwise it won't let me do anything else such as quit or return to the game board. It doesn't however ask me for a file name.
