Every time I finish a mission so I can save the game it always says I can't manually save at this time with a lock symbol.

I only got up to where you have to drive your first wagon after robbing the train, but it's been like this for a while now. When can you start to manually save?

Thank you

you should be able to manually save long before that, you just need to move farther away from things that might attack you.

I don't think there was anything that was hostile though, but I could be wrong.

Thanks, man!

You can't save during a mission. I always save BEFORE I talk to a mission giver. I also save after a mission is complete.

In the beginning at least it seems like they give you the next mission right after you finish one with no time in between. Just not used to it yet but I'll survive hah.

In Chapter 1 you'll have a moment where you get a choice of two missions - one starts by speaking to Pearson and one by speaking to Bill, I think. You can save before starting either of those, and save again after finishing the one you chose, but once you start the second of those two missions you can't manually save again until Chapter 2. The missions run back to back without a break for a while there.

Sometimes after finishing a mission or a cutscene etc you have to wait about 10-20 seconds to be able to save.
War is where the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other.
