On both occasions, the save file corruption (unable to load, and I get an error message) happened immediately after the death of a Scylla due to bleeding - this seems to be a very specific condition. After a bleed death, I can continue playing, but anytime I save, it will be unloadable.
I’ve killed a Scylla in another mission by blasting it to death, and my save wasn’t corrupted. So it seems there is a bug which corrupts the save file after a bleed death.
Yes, I have the same situation, even worse. .
I kill Scylla save, I can’t load.
Regardless of whether he died from the skill or the turret, the archive will not be read as long as he kills it
Archives will not work unless I complete this map battl
One other correlation I noticed - on both occasions, the mission was at an Anu Haven
The only reason I registered to the forum is to to tell the devs the following:
The game is good, the core gameplay is good, you can feel that the game was crowd funded in certain areas but nothing major. The fact that it corrupts your save file (twice because the first time I was like a good 15 hours in but I gave the game an another shot because I thought it deserves it) is a complete mindfuck to me. How a basic feature like this can be fucked up like this? 35 hours in (the two scenarios added together) on almost the hardest difficulty without a loss of a single soldier and you get this? Seriously?! Because of this I will tell all my friends who were interested at least a little bit in this game to stay away unless they want to smash they computer to pieces. This is not something what should be patched afterwards, this is what should NEVER come up if you are taking your job at least a little bit seriously. I’m sorry but this game is broken, will not play a single minute after these two incidents.
You were spot on!! I was having the same problem. If the Scylla doesn’t have a bleed effect the save is okay! Thanks so much!!
But you will always have bleed effect if you want to kill it…! This thing really bears down on me. I have to force myself to play through this glitch mess game.
Same bug here, but…
I suspect the reason comes from a specific mutation: the one that spawns mindfraggers on death. After that happens the save is corrupt, the game needs to be restarted and the mission started over.
I can copy on that. I can load all saves, once the scylla goes down (and spawns fraggers) savegames seem corrupted. Very annoying… In my case the fraggers were dumped into mist. Visible. But not targetable…
I think Snapshot Games should release a Patch for this to all players. Obviously I’m talking about Lt. Adam “Patch” Wellington, the sniper-heavy operative, with a paralyzing sniper rifle locked and loaded…
A paralyzed scylla is a bug-free scylla. Quite literally in this case.
Just adding to this discussion in case it helps - I have suffered exactly the same issue.
In my case I can confirm the same circumstances:
Mission contained a Scylla, which had used death burst to create a load of Mindfraggers.
Unfortunately (both for me and this report) I don’t have any saves from the mission from before the Scylla death, so I can’t sday for sure that they would work.
I think I might hold off on playing the game until this patch is repaired - it’s quite a game breaker. Shame because I’m loving the game otherwise.
Yep. Seems correlated to mindfragger burst on death. I’ve had it happen twice now. Seriously sucks after long hard fought battles
please correct this error. People have drawn attention to it for more than a month as people complain about it. Your game is not one of the cheapest so please fix it to play. Thank you
Had the same issue a few times. What worked for me as a temporary workaround was destroying the Mindfragger spawning module on the Scylla before you kill it. No spawing = no corrupting of the savegame for me.
A fix would be welcome, yes.
Have you verified that? Same Mission with and without destroying the mindfragger Module? I am asking because i have the same Problem
Wich Part is the mindfragger Module? And when i destroy that no mindfragger will appear After scyllas’ death?
Yes, I have verified that.
When you zoom in on the Scylla (rightclick I believe) you can see the spawning pad. It’s at the aft section.
Thank you. I will try that next time! Hope it works
GREAT! Worked for me too!!! Can load if i First destroy the specific Part on the scylla. When no mindfragger appears if you Kill a scylla then savegame load is possible.
I have another ruined save game. Where I spent an hour! If I had no more save so I lost all the procedure and I would have to start over. (I have 40 hours in the game). Really developers should solve it! But why would they do that when we bought the game. This is the approach !!
Its just happened to me. I guess that’s another thing that never happened to the beta testers…
