Game crashing when I try to load a save game
I took a look at the save files and the ones I can't load are all 90kb or larger... I am trying to load a save when it's around turn 150 so it's later in the game and the save file for some reason is just over 90kb. Wtf?

Same happened to me. Can't seem to load any game over that file size. Any fix? I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, fully patched and up-to-date drivers if that helps. Graphics settings are maxed in the game--might that be it?
Edit: tried reducing graphics settings to minimum--no help.

Thanks for the reply. Windows 7 64bit here also, any fixes for this? The game is unplayable now and it's really too bad, I loved this game. Someone please help.

I just encountered that same problem: using the DLC Disharmony and I'm at turn ~250. Whenever I load it crashes...
Please fix this :'(

Huh--this seems fairly widespread then, and something I didn't run into the first time couple times I played this game (last year I guess). What gives?

Same here; I had a game saved from at least a year ago that was way past turn 200 I think or at least very late in the game, and it is only 60something kb and can be loaded.

it's a bug that got put in a patch a while back and they never did a good job fixing it. load a smaller earlier save and then load the recent one, sometimes helps

Thanks--that worked for me. One of the more bizarre glitches I've run into lately.

Thanks, worked for me also. Too bad it's like that in the first place though, still this is a good workaround, thanks a lot!

Well that's too bad, I just got my hopes up again. It doesn't matter that I can load the later saves, after any manual battle the game crashes. Now the game is really ruined.

i'm having a similar problem, the game just wont load save games.
cormack45 Aug 9, 2014 @ 12:05am 
yeah, sorry to hear that. was a good game til they screwed it up. smallish company, probably figured they wouldn't profit enough fixing an old product and just worked on the newer games.

seeing as I'm pretty sure the glitches are related to file size only other thing I can suggest is smaller maps with fewer factions

Anyone have a fix for the CTDs after any manual battle? I really don't feel like playing the game if I only can do auto battles or else it crashes. I am fine with being able to load my saves, I just load a smaller save file first like the previous helpful user suggested but still the game is kind of ruined now if I can't do manual battles anymore.
