Some WipEout HD players are reporting difficulties with the autosave function on the game's 1.30 update, released this week.
Luckily, some enterprising souls have come up with a workaround, as you can see on the PS boards.
- Sign out of PSN.
- Launch the game.
- Choose "Online" from the main menu, and allow it to sign you back into PSN.
- Acknowledge release notes for the 1.30 patch.
- Wait for the game to auto-save.
