Okay so I've had Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence for about 2 months now, and I wanted to play the original Metal Gear, which is on the second disc. Well, I was making good progress, and I saved and quit playing for a while. When I came back, I was at the elevator, with only my gun (no ammo), Card 1, Binoculars, cigars and rations. I thought it was because I didn't save, so I just continued from there. After I made about 30 minutes worth of progress, I save again and quit playing. Then I come back, and I'm back at the elevator with the same few items as before, with all that progress lost. Is this some sort of glitch or something?
Saving Metal Gear (On MGS3:Subsistence)
I haven't played it on the PS2 version yet but in the original it would only save at certain points in the game. It seems it is still true for this version as well. It's like a check point thing really.
