MY SAVE WON'T LOAD! - What to do.
2 2

Question

If you have a save that will not load, please PM a link to a zip file containing the save directory (on windows):

C:\Users\<Username>\Zomboid\<GameMode>\<AffectedSaveDirectory>

- if moving to a new version there will be a _backup version created, please send that if it exists since your save itself will likely be corrupted to myself and RobertJohnson and we'll look into figuring out the problem and fixing it in the next build.

 

 

On Mac Os you can find your files under:

/Users/<Username>/Zomboid/<GameMode>/<AffectedSaveDirectory>

Before the update, PZ Steam .17 (beta) had two mods that were standard (never had to download or activate them myself). One of them was the menu improvement mod (menus stay on screen). Both mods aren't available anymore after the update, even though they are in the mod directory. Could this be the issue for not loading old save games? I've re-installed PZ and the mods in question but no success. I've deleted my 1 month save game because of this...lol. Don't mind that because I love rebuilding. Would be great to solve this for the future though. Thx.

How long does it usually take to fix this?

Hard to say since you haven't posted a save you're having problems with.
I was under impression, that it was supposed to be PM'd so how would you know if he's done it or hasn't?

Edit: bildack - I've sent mine at 6th of Feb. and it's status is still "not yet read"

Hey PZ team.  (This is how I died.....Real world lightning strike) build 27 sandbox crash.  I had a game paused for about an hour and lightning struck and then my pc lost power.  (I know... my ups died a year ago and I haven't replaced it).  I don't know if this thread is for power outage crash recoveries, but I figured I would ask.  When trying to load the save, it crashed a couple of times and then it loaded as if my character died.  

 

I'd like my characters stats to have not been lost, but i'm okay with letting him die the way he did.

Thanks for making an awesome game.  

Joe
