Game crashing same place - Possible Save Corruption?

Post by mmobley1 »

Hi, I'm playing a LUDM game and in later stages. Sadly, I think my game has taken some corruption. It now crashes on the same turn. I've localized it to a few possible task forces. Is there any way I can fix this to keep it from happening?

Thanks. Check Integrity found a bunch of missing ship entries. Unfortunately, trying to even load the fixed save leads to an instant crash.

Hey mmobley1, nice to see you passing by!

No surprise it failed on udm, only vanilla is supported yet. I didn't even look at mod compatibility yet, but feel free to do some analysis and fix the code on https://gitlab.com/stbotf/ultimate-editor

More read-up on the vanilla save games you find in viewtopic.php?f=125&t=3896
it is pretty well analysed so what really misses is some adoption for udm / udml
if then there's still some issue, you could try remove ship by ship till you found the cause

First thing to check is what changes there are in the save game hex layout. thunderchero might know some hints ;)
