Okay, this is exactly fucking why you can't make a huge open world RPG and not have multiple fucking save files. You'd think there would at least be a separate slot for the autosave.
I came across a glitch that won't allow me to complete the Decipher a Text quest. I talked to the merchant who does forgeries and he translated the text for me, then the quest updated as it should. But then, I noticed he had a woman's dress for sale and I remembered that there was an achievement for putting a male pawn in women's clothing, so I went ahead and did that. Then, I reloaded, because once you take a unequip a pawn's stuff, it's gone, which is fucking stupid. So, when I reloaded, the autosave had the merchant still with the red marker and the quest info still said "ask around town" even though the reason it autosaved right there in the first place was because my quest had updated after talking to that merchant. So, I talked to him again and he gave me the same dialogue that he's supposed to, but this time, it wouldn't update. I tried reloading twice after that and I had the same problem.
Mother of fuck, this is pissing me off.
