A new file - professor layton

There are 3 files to save too on the professor layton game. All the files have been used. I start a new game and it allows me to overwrite a file when i save the game as i go, however after 1 hours worth of play - my file disappears and the origional file appears. This has happened to me three times. How can i delete a file?

The game should, of course, overwrite existing saves without problem

While the game does have a few set save points, the best way to save (which can be done at any time) is to use the Save option in the trunk (some players forget about this)

If you save into a save slot doing this and it's not there when you next restart the game, then something is wrong

If you purchased the game "second hand" on eBay, then you may have ended up with a pirated copy (these have caused various problems for players including stopping during the game)

The game doesn't have an option to delete the save files

If you are confident that saving just isn't working and you're unable to return the game for replacement or refund, one drastic course of action may be to corrupt the save (by quickly turning off the DS while it saves), thus causing the game to say the save is corrupted and make a new save file ... naturally, this should only be done as a last resort

The game does not provide an option to delete save files and the recommended method is to simply start a new game and overwrite the existing files

Saying that, you can delete save files by purposely corrupting the files (by, say, turning off the DS as the game is saving), although there is a small element of risk as you can end up with a partially corrupted save that you can neither load from or save to

Professor Layton & The Curious Village - Error


Hi, Sexylegz01 this is only thought, you know when we have to save the game. By over writing a saved file. What about going back to the last file, that you saved before you got to the Ferris Wheel bit. And carrie on from there. Hopefully that might do the trick. Let me know if it worked's Thanks Pitstop. Hope it works.
