[EDITE] Snapshot-EE very patiently helped me fix this issue … :100: :clap: :+1: :fist_right: :fist_left:

You broke the bloody game I had saved! Now I get the error message YOU NEED THE LEGACY GAME ADD ON Which I already have! :roll_eyes: :roll_eyes:

Tried clearing the Cache like tips suggest, and still no go on game! :frowning:
See the OWNED tag in the screenshot?

This is what I see when I trey to Load a Saved Game :open_mouth:

Hi there! Absolutely want to try and get to the bottom of this. Could you check this DLC off in the EGS launcher, and verify your game install?

Verified files and here is a pic of the DLC highlighted. I was only using the Ancients for my play through.
Note: Tried turning off CLOUD SYNC and same errors come up.

To be honest, I can start a new game, but not with the Legacy of Ancients Content. And I can load and play a game made before Legacy of Ancients became available.

Hi EE, as you can readily see, there is No Check Box for Legacy anymore :’(

Always hate to ask this, but could you try uninstalling and reinstalling? We’re not sure why that would be happening. Unfortunately, it seems like a unique sitatuion. :frowning:

Yeah EE, that’s always the last recourse. I will say that during the Update, it seemed to fail twice, before I started turning AUTO this and that off. I’ll get back to yas

Thanks for your patience

No, thank YOU. Sorry you’re having a problem, and fingers crossed it gets resolved with that course of action!!


Snapsho-EE, thank you again for the tips, suggestions and patience. You are an asset for Snapshot Games company, that should be well rewarded for all you are doing for us users… and sometimes abusers. If it helps, pass on these kudos to your boss. :clap:t2: :+1:t2:

5 Add-Ons and a Verify later … Eureka! No not the one in Oregon. Hey did we just define a new measure of time? Ticks-Between-Texts :open_mouth:

All saves restored. Game running nominally.

Hi, is the OSX Mac version released yet?

So glad to hear that!! Hate when things get in the way between you and playing, but glad you’re finally back. Thanks for the kind words, and I hope the game continues to treat you well…until it mercilessly drops some advanced Pandoran evolutions on ya. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the reply.

Sorry, I was not clear I think. I already have the OSX Mac version and the DLCs to date. I was referring to whether the 1.7.1 hotfix has already been pushed out for the Mac version. Previously there has been some delay compared to the PC version and I don’t see any reference to the 1.7.1 hotfix in my current version (EPIC auto-updates enabled).
