Lost Recipes / Banks / Keybindings won't save
Seemingly out of random I got stuck with this. I loaded up my game today and not only was I unable to start on the later floors but my SOTSDEX is blank.

My keybindings won't save between playthroughs (I hit 'save and can play with them that way. But the next time I run the game they are set to default).


Any solutions? At least to the keybinding thing. I know my stuff is probably gone forever but I hate having to change the keybindings every time I load up the game

This should help you get back on your feet till you can decipher the messages again.

Well I appreciate the list. But I am kinda concerned about the whole "not saving user data" thing. I found the appdata where it keeps the .dat file and the one in there is big enough. I tried moving it to make a new one and it still wouldn't save settings.

I don't want to play just to find all my progress wiped the next game launch :\

Sounds like maybe the latest patch F'd things up for you.

I confirm, game doesn't save key bindings when you exit the game, other data (saves, sotsdex entries) and settings seem to save fine.

Deleting your profile ( C:\Users\<username>y\AppData\Roaming\Sword of the Stars - The Pit\default_profile.dat ) doesn't fix the issue, as is checking game's cache.

Try using a computer terminal. You'll see the decryption messages are blank. Also go to floor 5, save something in the bank. Exit and relaunch the game it won't save the bank items or exp and you won't be able to start on that floor.

Confirmed. Messages aren't saved on game exit, as is bank's contents.

Also, when you succesfuly acces the terminal and get a message, it is displayed on the right side of the window, but is not selected (no decrypt buttom, assuming it's encrypted), you have to select it first to decrypt, although it's already "there" on the right half of a window.

I have the same problem. Do not save any data (keybindings, floors progress etc ).
Reinstalling the application (including checking game cache) and deleting "default_profile.dat" does not fix it.

I'm looking into this.

Much appreciated! I love the game and all the effort you folks put into it. I hope it gets fixed soon!
