FINALLY figured it out. Either you will all think I'm a real idiot or you will say "Hmmmm...who woulda thunk?"

I was having this save problem with all the RPG games I tried. Then last week I downloaded Aveyond 2 and when I tried to save I got an actual error message with a bunch of stuff I don't understand but ending with "time must be positive."

This led me to my computer's clock/calendar. Though my time and day/month were fine the year read 8002! I don't know why; I did have my computer worked on some time ago and perhaps it was changed at that time.

I fixed that and now all my RPG games save just fine, as they should.

This has opened up a new world for me. I would just start from the beginning every time, trying to get farther each time before I was killed. Now I can actually play the games through.

Thanks for all the help from everyone.

wow i could have never think of this

it's probably because they used low integer variables for time/date so it gave negative numbers (for example in pascal "extended" has range from -4932 to +4932)
