    Editing The DB - Does It Affect A Saved Game?

    Hi fellas,

    Just a quick and basic question that i'm sure has been asked many times before.

    If you have a current save running and you then edit the in game database (not a save game editor), will that affect your current save? Will you still be able to continue the save and the game won't crash, the game will only update when you make a new save?

    Many thanks,


    Matt

    Nope to affecting current save. And nope to making a save crash.

    Only editing the exe code (or applying different patches) will cause that sort of issue

    Error Message when opening save game

    Hi all,

    I am in the year 2300 something...

    I have been playing most nights for the last year or so but tonight when attempting to open my save game i get a message that reads 'v3.9.68 comp_stats..CPP 6033

    I really do not want to lose this file as it's been amazing.

    Any ideas?

    Much appreciated.

    Alex

    Is the game looking st the right path for the save?

    Copy the save, move elsewhere and then change the path the game is looking in to find the save

    Do you have the disc?

    If not, just re-mount the ISO

    Thanks Redknapp, re-mounting the ISO worked!

    re-updated the Patch to v3.9.68 (after seeing the error message stating I was on v3.9.60)

    ...and made a back up copy of save just in case

    Cheers

    After my latest save game stuff up I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with having to re start games!
    Is there something that I'm doing wrong or an issue with my laptop? Or is it something as simple as the game being old and just dying in the ass a little bit?
    I've updated to 3.9.68, run as administrator but still seem to have issues. This will be the 4th time I've had to re start Cos of save game issues.
    In my most recent save with aldershot that I lost, I was only in 07/08 so hadn't been playing very long.
    Any help would be nice as I love this game and would actually like to get past 5/6 years on it.

    Maybe just uninstall everything and start afresh

    What patches/data etc you want to use?

    Install Game
    Install 3.9.68 Patch
    Install 17.18 update (if playing with today's players)

    Ensure compataibility and run everything as admin

    Not sure if you're saving games somewhere fancy or to defualt patch etc but I always fins a complete uninstall of everything always helps

    Yeah I've done that a few times, so have done it before I've started this new game. Maybe it's just a bit of bad luck. I like the old school so playing with the ODB.
    What compatibility do you you normally run with?
