Holding the game for randsom
the dev are trying to get people to buy the game by holding it for ransom? I uninstalled and reinstalled the game and my old saves all say I need to install the DLC. this is illegal, basically taking away a game and holding it for ransom until we buy the DLC? I only expected this from EA

Click on the DLC tab for the game on steam and make sure you have them installed.

The problem is that the latest auto-update from steam broke the gamesaves. I nor any of the rest of us did anything wrong nor should we have to jump through hoops to fix it. They automatically tore it up. They can automatically fix it.

I have not had any problems and was able to continue my previous save with no glitches. Wonder what happened with yours?

It means they want us to pay for a DLC pack in order to play our saved games.

Patch came out over night. Anyone confirm if this fixed it?

I have no idea what you're talking about, but I'm able to load my save files perfectly fine, and I have all but two DLC. I've never had this problem you speak of, actually o.O There was a huge bug caused by the new DLC I think that messed with people's textures, but they have a beta patch or whatever out atm, I'm using it, and it fixed those texture glitches right up.

One of the new DLCs, not sure which one, recently came out. I have no DLCs purchased.

When I try and go on any of my saved games it says that an error has occured. The buildings you are using in this saved game requires DLC. Basically giving me and many others the options to either, make a new saved game from scratch or buy the DLC in order to play where we left off.

Exactly, the last DLC (modern times or something) broke peoples saves. I emailed Kalypso about it and they gave me a key :) Resolution!!!

D= Broken saves, it does suck, though. =( The only problem I've had with this is the recent texture mess up. And I've had this game for about 2 years now XD
