Hi
In many games such as xcom or others, there is a big point in the player not being able to go back if something went "bad". Actions should be permanent. The punishment/difficulty for "failing" something ingame can differ, but generally you don't want the player to be able to cheat.
 
However it seems to be hard to technically prevent save cheating (the user just finds and backups the "savefile" and restores it later). Any good way to actually stop this from being possible? Hide or nest files or something? I mean, if i save progress in the exe instead of in a separate "savefile" the player can just backup the exefile...

I was wondering the same thing but for single player games (will probably never make an mmo/mo etc.).
I guess i/you could implement an automatic autosave without the option for 'no autosave' and when the player opens the game, you can only load your career (like nfsmw).
