    yes but where you have been on that map DOES save. As per the manual and as per the 4 chars I have who have completed the game!
    Except that now with certain chars they dont save where you have been which is mightly annoying when you have explored a bit but the maps dont tell you so....
    and I know for a fact it does save where you have been on said map as any new char i create does so.
    So still need help!

    ...the map will be saved as long as you are in the game but if you leave they change and are not saved

    trust us on this one, maps dont save.

    Maps do save on single player but multi they are renewed every game

    Try and clear your d2 save directory of all the files except the .d2s ones. That may prevent you from having to do a full re-install. Just be sure NOT to delete the .d2s files, those are your savegames, everything else, including the .reg and .map files which are not crucial to your characters survival.

    Could be he changed difficulties. Even on single, new maps get generated when you change to another difficulty then go back.

    Your files may be archived

    I had the same problem and it was because i had saved my character and map files, burned them on a CD, formatted the drive, reinstalled D2X, copied the character files, etc.

    But when you copy from a cd to your drive, it usually checks all the files as archive or read only. Go to your Save folder, hit Edit >> select all. Right click one of the character files and select Properties. Uncheck Archive, Read-only, or anything that won't let you write to them.

    That should do it if you're having the same issue.

    good luck!
