DOOM (2016) (a.k.a DOOM 4) is fantastic. The nostalgic factor with the classic levels was very nice, even though finding them was very annoying in some levels. I admit I cheated by watching where they are since I didn’t want to spent hours watching every inch of the level. I prefer to shoot and kill monsters instead! While playing a crash made me loose all the upgrades, I could still see the unlocked levels and use all the guns but all the upgrades were gone. Thankfully I was at level 5 and I didn’t find all the secrets and I would replay them anyway but still, I lost many hours. When I searched about the issue I found out that this specific scenario happened to many players. There are already threads for this so I didn’t post it earlier but I decided to warn the Doom players also.

How to backup

The base path where the save games are is: %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\id Software\DOOM\base

Inside the savegame folder you can find a folder which name is numbers. Every time you stop playing, go to savegame folder and zip the entire folder (to also save some space).

How to restore a backup

The restore has one step more than the backup. The first is to extract the latest zip to your savegame folder. The second is to do the same but in the temporary folder. In the base path, there is a generated folder and then a temp folder. Inside temp folder you can see the same savegame folder as in the base path. Extract the zip also there or better delete existing folder and then unzip.

A savegame for finished game

The following file is the savegame for the completed DOOM. It has finished single player, all guns with full upgrades, all secrets found, all collectibles, all runes upgraded and all challenges completed. If you lost your progress, you can use this save file. First slot is the corrupted one so don’t use it. Also, the number is not mine, I found that by searching a number that is used in another thread. You have to rename the folder if it is not the same id. I have 25 save files while backing up my progress. If someone doesn’t want everything unlocked but prefers to continue at a point close his progress before the crash let me know through a commend and I will provide a different savegame.

    Hey! Thanks for this! I had a weird bug that corrupted my save after I restarted a mission. I had all collectibles and 100% on all levels up til the Lazurus level. Do you have something around there? Thanks!

    It’s been a while since I created the save games and I don’t remember which one is on which level. If you like I can send you all the save games (around 20) and figure out which one is before Argent Tower.

    Hello, I have the same problem. I was trying to play your saved games, but both slots are “file corrupted” 🙁

    The game is great, but it crashed in half progress and I am not going to play it from the start 🙁

    Hi, did you rename my save games with the same names as your old saved games? The folder name is the ID so it should be your ID.

    Thank you so much – I was just in hell literally in the game and while trying to work out how these save files keep corrupting !! This whole dev mode / cloud saves / crashing during load has been insane – literally one of the only negatives about this otherwise amazing game…
    Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for making your 100% complete save file available for download – the fact there dont even seem to be level selection cheats in DEV mode is bizzare…
    Seriously Bethseda should pay your web hosting – you are doing the DOOM / PC gaming community a huge service with this…
    Really hope the get this sorted in the future – Nostalgic yet modern fun – can’t wait for more , bring on DOOM II remake + QUAKE 1 remake 😀

    I will upload all my save games since I get many requests. Unfortunately I don’t remember the level for each save game.

    Hey man. Cheers for creating this page.

    My internet went down during the Argent Tower level. I carried on playing as I wasn’t actually aware this had happened, however some sound effects had gone mute. I got to the top of the tower and played the cut scene where Olivia was all bloodied and got sucked up into the air, and as the sound was bugged I decided to exit the game and restart. I was then stuck in between the two sliding doors at the top of the tower. Got a vid here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GCFBiojH78

    I tried restoring old saves, and then done messed things up. Ended up with a save file back on the second level!

    Any chance you could post me a save file at the checkpoint at the top of the tower? Also, I was playing on ultra-violence, if that makes any difference? I’d obviously like to exactly where I left off. I still have all the things I collected thus far.

    Anyway, any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Ouch, I didn’t write where each save game is but I didn’t play in ulta-violence. Either restart the mission or a previous checkpoint. I played each level several times, especially when they got corrupted. I know it is annoying but this is Doom and it is fun playing it. You will miss it after you are done.

    Hey man after I copy the saves to the folder it is still saying they are corrupt, am I doing something wrong?

    Be sure you copy to both save game and temp folders. Also, make sure you rename it to be your id, it might differ from the id I have in the files.
