I updated to the latest patch and the daily auto saves are not working. I kept the same switches I had on previous updates. These are the switches I use :

-cpu2 -fd -px1280 -py800 -multiaudio -dd_sw -altFont -deepColor -skipVideo

I do get the pre turn save but no daily save in slot2. Do I have to reinstall ?

For autosaves to work you need to copy the beta dll and the exe into the main folder overwriting the old exe and dll. I'd backup the files or use a mod swap utility...

The end of turn auto-save goes in slot 000. The pre-turn save in slot 002.

That's true Michael - but I thought he was referring to the "-d" switch going to the archive save folder

My problem is the standard auto save that used yo save in slot 0. In my case it is not saving.

Try changing -fd to just -f.

The autosave (to 002) is on by default.
IIRC, the 'd' turns on the archived autosave but turns off the 002 one.

Yes. I run "-d -autosave" during testing, but there is no reason why you can use -f and -autosave.
