Description

When playing singpleplayer campaing in multiplayer. Autosaves and manual saves work ok, BUT after using Suspend the first time there is no way loading autosaves and manual saves. Autosaves will ofcourse happen as scripted and manual saves can be done, BUT game will always load the latest Suspend save, no matter how many newer autosaves and manual saves are saved after it.

Repro
1. Revert to any mission from Harvest Red campaign and host it.
2. Do manual save and memorize the place where you were
3. Move somewhere else and memorize the place where you were
4. Choose ESC->Suspend to make Supend-save (Continue-save)
6. Again move to a third place, momorize that place and do a manual save
7. Kill teammate to end the mission
9. You will be returned to character selection screen
10. Resume game

Observe
1. You are returned to the place where you did the one and only Suspend save
2. Manual save that was done later and is newer by date was not loaded

Expected
Resume should always load latest savegame by filedate or let player choose what to load.

@amiturlo

What you could do would be to zip and attach savegame folder here and tell what patch build it is for and also confirm if this happens in any other situation than Harvest Red multiplayer campaign.
