The DioField is an RPG that uses a real-time tactical system, meaning the game can sometimes be unforgiving if your attention is not 100% on the ball. So saving is paramount to do on every occasion. Here’s a guide on how to save in The DioField Chronicle.
When can you save in The DioField Chronicles?
You can only manually save in the Headquarters/base called Elm Camp in The DioField Chronicle. To do that, press the Start Button/ESC, then Save, and select one of the four available slots.
There is no autosaving in The DioField Chronicle, and you cannot save anywhere else but Elm Camp. Not even on the pre-mission screen. Because of this, it is very to forget to save, so every time you go back to HQ, save.
