Around turn 190 in my undivided campaign I can no longer load any saved, autosave or quicksave files since the game crashes at the loading screen everytime. I checked the files integrity but nothing changed.

    Hi @CA_Charlie

    I'm having the same issue with my Boris game at turn 174

    - Build is v1.0.1
    - It starts to load, but after is crosses like the first 2cm, the music cuts for milisecond then loads again followed by the crash
    - mini dump to large (for some reason)
    - Attached saves, one from the quick save from battle (after this battle was the first crash, couldn't load after that but also can't load previous saves), other being the autosave before the end turn
    - Attached DxDiag
    - Attached Scripts
    - Attached Modified.log file

    If you still need the Mini dump I'll have to get it to you some other way

    Yours Faithfully

    Same Issue , Tzarina Katarin, Round 179
    Same as kajdodo

    Build 1.0.1 12645.2534073
    I don't know the location of the files above.. On my data campaing folder i see only wh3_main_chaos and wh3_main_prologue..which means that all my saved files were deleted ...because i just wanted to check the chaos beggining.
    I will not play the game anymore till I can acces my saved games. Actually i will not play it till mortal empires DLC, this is an broken experience. If you can't continue a saved campaign , whats the purpose having it in the game?

    * Update 06.03.2022
    I checked the previous saves , like 5, saves back...it seems on those it let me get back to the campaing. So some saved get bugged somehow.

    I also have a similar problem with my nurgle campaign. My game suddenly crashed and when I checked my saves it was deleted.
  • ShaanShaan Registered Users Posts: 1
    I have this problem as well, just want to know if CA have helped at all recover any of your games. I mean wasting 170 turns of anyone's time is unacceptable. Any resolution here at all?

    Same problem
    Can`t load my game (Chaos Legion)
    166 turn, 165 turn was loaded as well

    Build v1.2.0

    It happened when i destroyed Servants of Slaanesh so i believe that it is sth with Slaanesh mechanics

    I tested the saves before and after the destruction of the faction. After the destruction, the save does not load, before - everything is fine

    Hope this info will help to fix it

    Same with my game. I destroyed the Servants of Slaanesh and after that I was not able to load a game any more.

    Please have a look at my savegames. First will load. You can destroy the Servants of Slaanesh with two auto battles. The second savegame is the corrupted one.

    Same here. All my saves after Servants of Slaanesh being done are corrupted. So just keep them alive and farm N'Kari, lol.

    I guess I'll add in that my save also will not load. I am at turn 317 after completing the campaign as Grand Cathay. I began having this issue around the 288 turn range but i was able to load back 3-5 auto-saves that worked.

    Now, however, I cannot get any of the saves since the 288 turn to load. Too bad because i played 20-30 turns since then and can't load into any of them

    I got the same problem. Turn 190 Slaneesh Campaign.
    Only have an autosave-file from Turn 196 and my Turn 190 Save-File.
    Loading either one of them makes the game crash and I guess the campaign is over.

    Anything from the dev team?

    I have the same problem as noted in the original post, turn 126 Kislev campaign. Any of the recent autosaves from that campaign have the same crash on loading screen since the original crash, however I am able to load an autosave from turn 96.

    Having similar issue with Greasus. Every time I save or end of turn auto-save I get a CTD and an unloadable save file. HAve tried loading save from a few turns back which load but unable to save them.

    Unable to progress game as a result

    Same here, grand cathay turn 98.
    I can load previous saves, play the game completely different but for some reason it still corrupts the saves at turn 98.
    Its been 5 months since this problem occured, how is it still happening ?
  • PALOCOXDXDPALOCOXDXD Registered Users Posts: 2
    i found a particular solution for my case, the corrupted saved files were the auto-save files , if i save mannually i can enter but if i load an auto-save file i cant enter. Then one just save mannually and all will be ok. I hope this will help to someone. Cheers.
