How can I save a skirmish game? I'm in the middle of a battle with the AI and I have to go and there is no save option.  Any ideas?

    Saving in skirmish? Hmm, standard quick save key is F5.

    But I believe if my memory serves me correct, DOW doesn't allow game save in skirmish mode

    That's what I thought.  I have really enjoyed the campaign portion of the game.  It has no saving on the fly either BUT you can simply take the main save file it creates each time you complete a mission and copy it and rename it and you have your old saved games.  This is the only complaint I have with DOW 2.  I think it is idiotic not to have a save at any time feature.

    Any more views out there?  Otherwise I'll close this one out soon.

    When you quit it automatically saves, when you restart game next time choose 'continue', continues where you left off. It's designed that way to keep the tension going on. I feel you and so do hundreds of others of the simple save feature that is standard in many other games.

    Take this thread for example

    You'll see how many people agree with you ;)
