I was playing the Witcher a while back and everything was going fine up until I decided to save my game. As the game is saving, right in the middle of when it says "Saving..." the game crashed and a message pops up in the desktop saying "The Witcher has stopped working and has to be closed". Fine, I'm thinking I can just hop back on and continue from my save but I soon find out that my save is no longer there. You click on the "Load Game" option and it just says "there are no games available to load".
I couldn't believe this so I go into the game folder and the save file is still there but it's just not showing up in the game for some reason.
It looks like this C:\Users\Username\Documents\The Witcher\Saves\000020 - Swamp Forest-020
When I click on the save folder (the 000020 swamp forest one) it opens up a really lengthy list of a bunch of "QST files" along with some "SAV files" and a few others and I have no idea what these are. They list a bunch of the monsters I've killed and things I did prior to saving for example one says "q9039_Cmentar.qst/5/23/2011/3:37 PM/QST File/15KB" there is long list of things like that with different monster listed that I actually remember killing before saving.
I assume the Cmentar is referring to a monster I had killed prior to saving http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Cemetaur
this was my first time encountering this monster in the entire game and I remember saving shortly after (like 5-10 minutes after) so based on this I know this is my save.
I never had autosave on because I hate how they pile up, so is there any way I can recover my save?
