Basically every time when I start up Red Dead Redemption on my XBox, I'm in the following situation: I have a manual save, and additionally an auto-save which is just a few minutes older.

Which one does it load from the start screen?

  • Always the auto-save?
  • Or always the newest save?

I can never tell the difference, because they're pretty close to each other. So I always have to go into "game -> load game" just to make sure it loads the save game I want.

Most games load the most recently saved game, so I'd assume that. – Mr Smooth Mar 31 '12 at 9:14

The most recently saved game is loaded.

Make sure your clock is correct. – Brok3n Jun 13 '14 at 4:41

Like GTA, it loads the most recent save. Try to contact Rockstar Games support.
