Unable to save games on new laptop gaming PC

asked Jul 11, 2018 in Windows 10 by Joe Pat
I have just purchased a Acer Predator Helios gaming laptop with Windows 10 already installed. I installed the 2TB Seagate HD also from both purchased from Amazon. Anyways I updated drivers and Bios and first thing I installed was Steam. I have also installed 3 different games all with the same issues. I cannot save any progress made in any game. I don’t receive any errors and it just doesn’t save and I have no idea what the issue is. I’ve changed the files to unchecked Read Only and attempted other options. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I’ve done as much research as I can to know resolve.

In order to fix this issue, you have to apply the below given fixes one by one.

First fix is related to the compatibility tab. To follow this method you have to apply the below given steps one by one:

Step 1: You have to navigate to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rocketleague\Binaries\Win32\
Step 2: Right-click on the RocketLeague.exe file
Step 3: Click on the compatibility tab and check the "Run as administrator" box

Step 4: Now, click on the Apply or OK
Step 5: Run the game again

Note: in case you play gems on several computers and want to keep your saved game then you have to do the same thing with Steam.exe because Steam is not able to read/write the data from the cloud.

Verify the Game integrity

To verify the game integrity, first you have to run the stem with admin privilege. Right click on the steam icon and choose run as Administrator

After launching the game now, go to your Steam games library and then again right click on the faulty game (the game suffering from the data saving issue)

Now, select properties and select local files 

Again choose verify Integrity of game cache 

This process takes a few minutes to do.
