I really, REALLY do not appreciate this system, it makes me plan my life OUTSIDE of the game to suit it (I.E allocating enough time to get to a save option or NOT play the game in the time I have, because progress will be lost. Why would you want me to NOT play your game?), rather than my choices WITHIN the game. The desired effect could have been reached with just the existing single save slot/overwrite by autosave, but save anytime. I’d still be stuck with my bad decisions and not have to write this post.
I didn’t lose much time before finding out about this nonsense, only about 10 minutes, but also another 20 to find a fix for it online. That is 30 minutes of MY real life time which has been wasted by a Warhorse design decision in the game I had paid for.
Warhose, I do not appreciate you accepting my money and then wasting my time, however minute the impact has been so far. I’ve only started the prologue, this was my first impression of your game, so you get a fitting rebuttal.

Guide to get rid of the necessity for Saviour Schnapps:
Go into your SteamLibrary (this is usually located at C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common)
Navigate to your Kingdom Come installation folder (named KingdomComeDeliverance) and open up the “Data” folder.
Take a copy of the “GameData.pak” file in case you make a mistake.
Now for the actual editing you will need a program to open archives with.
To open it with 7-ZIP you right-click the “GameData.pak” and select “7-ZIP” > “Open Archive”.
Navigate to “Libs\UI\UIActions\” and open up the file called “MM_SaveGame.xml” with any text editor. (right-click->edit works in 7-zip)
Scroll down to line 67 (or just search for “potion”) where you will see the following:
Change the UsePotion=”1″ to UsePotion=”0″ (simply change the 1 to a 0)
Repeat what you just did on step 7 on line 70.
Save the file and close it. 7-ZIP will ask if you want to save your changes made to the archive, click “Yes”.
Close the archive and start the game.
If anything went wrong simply replace the file with the copied backup, or try verifying the integrity of your game cache in Steam.
You still need to have at least 1, as far as I can tell.
