The game got unwinnable
So I die after the boss fight with the salamander king because of bomb-throwing imperials. No biggie, ♥♥♥♥ happens. When I reload, I find myself without the mana upgrade I got before beating the boss and this upgrade is now unattainable. The very fact that the autosave wasn't made after I beat the boss but before is already indicative of the fact that whoever designed the checkpoints SHOULD NEVER DESIGN ANY BLOODY CHECKPOINT AGAIN IN THEIR ENTIRE ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ LIFE. I decided to quit and reload because clearly this is a mistake. On the reload it throws me into an enclosed area there is no exit from. The game is now officially unwinnable. Thank you. THANK YOU FOR WASTING 16 HOURS OF MY ♥♥♥♥ING LIFE YOU ♥♥♥♥ING IDIOTS.

Yeah, this error just effected me too, well ♥♥♥♥. Hope the guy who designed that level got fired. seriously, how do you screw that up?

They all got fired. the original Overlord 1 & 2 Team no longer exist, hence the reason its bugged in places and has some game stopping bugs in it.

Serves them right.

HEY, they aren't your slaves! If they could, they would fix the bugs. Besides, you're getting too mad for it, it's just a game. I am sure you got decades of your life left...unless you've got cancer. In that case, sorry. Still, it isn't completly their fault. It serves you right for such ♥♥♥♥-behaviour.
Get fired, you've got to still to do patches eventhough you don't have anymore access to a game nor a develper tools, gg.

Of course they are not my slaves: I paid them by buying this game. That makes them hired workers.
For one, it's not just about the bugs, it's about the ♥♥♥♥♥iest checkpoint save system I've ever seen.
For two, ♥♥♥♥-behavior? Oh my, what a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ I was for being angry at a game bringing me frustration instead of entertainment and joy. I mean, who wants to get JOY out of their games?
For three, again, they shouldn't have made such a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ job with designing checkpoints.
For four: IT ISN'T COMPLETELY THEIR FAULT? REALLY? THEN WHERE IS MY FAULT IN ALL OF THIS?!

That's not entirely true. Triumph Studios, the creator of Overlord and Overlord 2 is still around. Lennart Sas the lead director of Overlord 2 is currently the managing director and co-owner of Triumph Studios so he's still around. That said it is entirely possible that many or all of the actual coders are long gone.

Other than "start the game from the beginning"? Nada.

Well actually there is, just found it on the web and it worked.
Once you load the game and back to your tower - whne you chose where to teleport on that level use the arrow keys on the keyboard to change the gate - where to teleport - you need the second gate.
Then you can continue beating Salamander King and on the way back get the mana upgrade.
Hope it helped.

Yeah, no. I tried another teleport, it only sent me in a closed room there was no way out from.

Well, worked for me...

the work around for this is to not go to the quest part of the teleport map, go to regions and pick wasteland sancuary gate 3. if you got as far as the salamander boss, you should have this open
