The situation is as follows:
- Mass Effect 3 is downloaded through origin, located in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3
- The save folder is located at
E:\BioWare\Mass Effect 3\Save
- Mass Effect 2 has the same setup (but should not matter)
I have an existing career already at that save location. Loading and saving for that career works. However when I try to create a new career, both from scratch and with importing, no new save is created, nor is the character folder created in the save folder.
I have tried setting Location in the
GamerSettings.ini both to nothing (original value) and to
E:\BioWare\Mass Effect 3\Save.
My Save folder has the right permissions, Mass Effect should be able to create a new folder there.
