Problem with save games

When I save my game and quit out, then start up again and load my game, it tells me my contract has expired and I need to finds another job. I’m running 1.02 on Windows 2000, and the 1.03 patch won’t install.

it seems like we have a bug with our patcher not validating the files on windows 2000. if you email me at cliff AT, I can send you a full reinstall link, this will have to do until I can work out why Windows2K foils my patcher ;(
In addition, could you also email me the save game thats faulty so I can check its the bug I think it is. You will find them in MyDocuments\kudos\savegames
