Half-Life 2 save corruption/issues


Currently having issues with Half-Life 2 saves getting corrupted or something.
basically, every other speedrun I do I have this issue. So what happens is that at certain maps if I save and then load i get kicked out to the menu… and then i cant load any save on that map. it will just instantly kick me back out to the menu.
I have tried both unpack and the steam version and the issue persists. Anyone have a clue how to solve this?


Dunno if it makes much sense but the first thing I would do would be to remove any autosaves and quicksaves you have and try again. If it doesn’t work I would delete the unpack folder and the half-life 2 folder in Steam\steamapps\common and then reinstall either and try again.


Could be Steam cloud interference. Try setting Steam cloud to upload instead of download.
Also I found this from a Steam Forums post:
