What is happening?

That causes the bank file issue.
How can I avoid the problem?
All you need is to overwrite "save names"
You can name your saves with "-savename#" command.
Frinckles : "Type -savename1 (name)"
You could only access -savename1 at the point of 5th June,
It unlocked -savename2 &3 for me when I checked on 17th June (Friday?).
I have no idea how many points you need to reach those commands.
But I believe the players who encountered the bank glitch would have more than 50k points for those commands.
(according to Frinckles, 20k points for save slot 1)
(I asked some mods/admins "How can I overwrite save names?"
But I didn't get an answer.
I had to look up all announcements in the January log.
Oh yes. I remember Frinckles suggested to me "Why don't you name your save?"
But I didn't know how.
I feel Mafia 2.0 has a problem with the way of announcements.)
Additional note. Your bank file still grows after the override.
so it's a coping approach. We are looking forward to a fixed patch.
