RE: can't find the 3rd pipe

Just go to Load Game and choose the 2nd autosave from the top. That should fix it! Smile

The same way.

Go on "Load" in the main menu, then take a look at some of the more recent autosaves. There's a time stamp for when it was created, perhaps that can help you find one from just before you started meddling with the control room? The autosaves should also list which level you were in at the time.

is it right that we can only get about 10-15 recent autosave(i don't know the exact number)?.And all my recent autosave is where i'm already missing the 3rd pipe.and i need to reach the older save

can i get my autosave from beginning of the game?

sorry for my bad grammar

Hm, yes I think there is a limit to the autosaves. I'm unsure if you can get that from the start, but it might be possible.

RE: can't find the 3rd pipe

I'm not sure but I don't think editing the save files will fix this issue. Are you sure that all your available saves are from the point where you were already missing the third pipe?

Anyway, the save files can be found here:

Windows Vista, 7 & 8: "My Documents\Amnesia\Main\"
Linux: ".frictionalgames/Amnesia/Main/"
Mac: "Library/Application Support/Frictional Games/Amnesia/Main/"

I was going to suggest giving you a save file from the start of the Control Room, but I've just realised that on my main profile I only have saves starting on the Nave area (which comes later in the game); on my secondary profile I do have a save file from the beginning of the Control Room, but the problem is that I was speedrunning so I didn't pick up any items at all: at that point in the game I've got zero notes, tinderboxes and laudanum flasks, and I only have a few drops of oil in the lantern. If this is not a problem for you, I can attach the save file here.
Or maybe someone else can provide you a save file with all the notes and some tinderboxes/laudanum/oil, if that's important to you.

I had a backup folder with a lot of save files from previous playthroughs, but I deleted it a couple of weeks ago to free hard drive space. Bad timing Sad

RE: can't find the 3rd pipe

Rasalghul, are you playing the game on Steam? If so, you might want to try running a game cache integrity check; some files might be corrupted or missing.

You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the game (your save files won't be lost).

If the problem persists, then it must be a save bug indeed.
