BioShock Infinite Not Saving?

If you landed here, there’s a high possibility that you are, like me, frustrated that you have to play your BioShock Infinite from a starting point again and again without it saving although it indicates that it AutoSaves from time to time via the top right hand corner of your screen.

My problem was that my XBox lost its connection to the outside world and therefore the times were all wrong.

When starting the game, don’t hit “Continue” when you load the game but rather “Load Chapter” – there you will, hopefully, find your latest Autosave and continue on your merry way.

Of course, reset the time on the XBox so you don’t encounter the problem again.

Enjoy!

2011 So Far

Hello Blog!

A big thanks to Pam Song for encouraging me to start blogging again. My last post was in November and since then, many many things have happened. A lot of my time (and thought) have been spent at work and improving myself in my knowledge of both theoretical and practical elements of my work.

It’s been challenging at times but the company that I work for has always been open and extremely encouraging in my continued development. The people that I work for and work with have been extremely gracious and generous with both their words and actions. I have always been a firm believer that once you’re unhappy in your current job or career, you need to change it. We spend a substantial time at work and to be unhappy in your job is definitely most detrimental to both yourself and the company you’re working for – this will then feed a feedback cycle. The opposite is also true, the happier you are in your job (or any situation for that matter) the happier other people feel around you and the positive feedback cycle starts to manifest itself.

Spiritually, I have learnt the quiet power of prayer and how prayer needs to be the bedrock of your faith. Without prayer and indeed, focus, on God from a day-to-day basis, it is extremely easy, especially for young adults like myself, to lose sight of the spiritual ramifications of our actions. Everything in the world is shouting for us to forget about the spiritual realm, to focus on the now and the imminent; the foreseeable and the predictable. No rewards are given for actions done “in faith”, no accolades for speaking the future before inheriting it.

But the spiritual realm is the very thing that we need to think about, need to focus on and need to base our actions on. Without God, everything is meaningless.

Relationship wise, my now fiancée and myself are starting plans for a wedding early next year. We have set a date but pending the preparations, will start to slowly release the news to our friends and family. I proposed in February last year but the fiancée chose to slowly let the parents know. I did ask but only informally and never got a really definite answer. It’s tricky, its not like the movies where the guy meets the parents and asks for the hand of the daughter – movies like this do not reflect Asian family culture… at all.

Anyway, we’re now more set than ever to settle down in Sydney and doing all we can to work towards this goal.

I hope this little update appeases the blog-gods and I hope to start reviving the blog to reflect a more personal angle to my life – and to go back to my roots of compiling my blogs as an autobiography in the future 😉

Please leave a comment if you’re still reading this blog; if not do give me a Tweet and say hello.

Much love,
God bless.



Call of Duty: Black Ops Error (Windows 7 x64)

Hello Internet,

I had problems playing my Call of Duty: Black Ops for the past weekend but I’ve since found a workaround for it.

My problem was it kept displaying File Write Error “Call of Duty: BlackOps couldn’t write a file. The hard drive is probably full” when my hard drive wasn’t full at all.

It is definitely a Windows 7 administration “problem”. After much anxiety and countless hours of tinkering with the game and Windows, I am pleased to let you know that I’ve managed to access the game today!

What I did was create a separate Windows 7 login account as a Basic User (do it in your UAC – Control Panel > User Accounts).

Login to the Basic account you’ve just created and launch the Steam Application by right clicking and then selecting “Run As Administrator”. I was prompted to enter the admin password and then it began…  [UPDATE: Go to the Steam folder (e.g. E:\Steam\SteamApps\common\call of duty black ops) and just double click on BlackOps – It took about 20 seconds to load on my computer]

Now back to the game!

Leave comments and I’ll try to help as much as I can.

Cheers!

Movie Reviews!

Yeow!

Caught these two movies (“Angels and Demons” and “Night At The Museum 2“) with the girlfriend in Singapore and of course I’ll do two things at once. Enjoy the time AND review the movie 😀

I wrote the review standing up on the MRT too! But that was when I was alone though; FACE time trumps PHONE time ANYTIME! Some people annoyingly do not follow this rule but ah-ah-ah, I’m on a no complaint campaign for myself. Everytime I sense that I’m on a complaint rampage I remind myself complaining is actually negativity. And negativity is NOT good!!! Like attracts like. Negativity attracts negativity so… Positivity attracts positivity! And guess what successful people are? Yup, anything BUT negative!

Anyway, I’ll blog about stuff soon… My hard disk’s still in the shop and I’m still deciding whether to go ahead with the AUD500 repair or not. It has my pictures from my holiday last month.

Hmmm… between Twitter, Facebook, DebateMovies.com and this blog, (and an up and coming website); I think this blog will slowly grow extinct. Ah ah ah! (Get behind me negative thought) Maybe I’ll lock this blog with a password or something… Cause most of my overseas friends are on Facebook anyway and the purpose of this blog WAS to service them. But with Facebook, this has been INSTANT. And a lot of things I think about these days are DOING things and not neccessarily THINKING things you know what I mean?

If I think about, I’ll just do it and the results will speak for itself.

But I guess there’s always time for thinking and reflecting and RECORDING my life. My sweet twenty-somethings… Haha!

I guess I’m rethinking the purpose of this blog for the time being. Maybe it’s meant for EXACTLY like rants like this… haha!

Till our next meeting!

God bless!

OK, I know its been a while but I’ve been so busy running through airports (through no fault of no one but myself) that I tend to neglect this piece of cyberspace…

But there’s always Twitter now I guess… Just look to your left 😀

Meanwhile, The Chasers are back!!! Click here for their Youtube playlist for Season 3 Episode 1!

God bless!
