Update causes save games to be unloadable?


Thanks for updating the game. Fixes are good and the community appreciates your commitment to delivering as good a service as you can.

I’m trying to load a saved game post-update, and the game crashes when it’s in its loading screen. I’ve tried autosaves, too.

We did a hard reboot after reading the forums, which seemed to get us a bit further in the loading process, but it still crashes before we get a full load.

You guys seem pretty good at getting back to us when we have problems, which is really good of you. I await instructions!



Hmmm, I have a horrible feeling this may be something to do with the new currency stuff that just got added, in which case it will be unavoidable…but I shall check…

Noooooo, my 98% approval rating!

This is happening to me too. I can play a new game just fine, but the saves that I have won’t load… it just goes to the loading screen for a bit and then crashes.

So basically I’m confirming what cvsanders has as well.


Same here. Can’t load any of my save games. Here’s a brief crash report, hoping it’ll help, and attached are the contents of the DEBUG folder as screenshots:
