UNSOLVED Game unable to save after Version 1.022/Crouch on R1 Broken2 Likes/5 Replies/128 Views
Hello, after today's Mastery Challenge update my game is unable to save, and I get a popup notification every time it tries to autosave. In addition, the update has also broken the crouch button, which I have set to R1.

Sorry to hear about your experience.
Regarding crouching and controller scheme, we have a dedicated megathread for this issue that can be found here. Resetting the controller scheme to default should resolve this issue temporarily, while our development team are looking for a permanent fix.
Regarding your save file, can you please provide us with a short video of this occurring, so we can investigate it further? Have you tried creating a manual save by any chance?
Many thanks and if you have any additional questions, please let us know.
@ubi-mark Hey thanks for reaching out. I tried to upload a video of the pop up but it wouldn't take so I'll just summarize, the pop up says "Failed to Save Game Progress: An error has just occurred that is stopping your game from being saved. Please restart your game to be able to save your progress again." and it appears every time the game tries to autosave, if I Manuel save it will say "Data corrupt!"
Now, the strange thing is that this error message is only bombarding my original play through on Manuel save 1. My second play through on Manuel save 2 is unburdened by this error message. A friend theorized that changing Jomsviking load out is related as they experienced the error message after editing their Jomsviking, and I do believe I had put Basim's outfit on mine before the messages appeared.
@ubi-mark I also have a bit of information pertaining to the custom control schemes not working. On PS5 my dodge is assigned to O and my crouch to R1. If I press O+R1 to dodge and immediately crouch, Eivor will still crouch, or stand from crouch. I hope that can help to figure out why the controls aren't functioning correctly.
All the Best!

@jmalkin177 I am having the same issue. I went in and switched R1 & R2 in free running/crouch drop and in shoot/alternative shoot. Layout like this...
R1 - Parkour Up/Swim Up
R2 - Drop Down/Crouch/Dive
R1 - Shoot
R2 - Alternate Shoot (to shoot with abilities)
That restores the crouch ability and allows you to keep your traditional weapon layout. It's not ideal, but it can work until they get a fix.
