Saved games crash after update

Post by grebo » March 23rd, 2018, 8:14 pm

Great new update with smooth turning, that is a wonderful addition.

I have the Oculus Home version and loading my saved games from before the update - yesterday in fact - now generates a fatal error once it starts to load. Starting a new save works fine but since I'm hours into the game it would be great not to have to start over from the very beginning.

Hi Grebo, where in the game did you have the crash?

I had a similar problem. Trying to win final battle. Wanted to change some spells. Raised hand to go back to lab. Stuck at loading screen. Restarted game. Loading screen runs about two minutes, then game shuts down.

It is in the cauldron/options area as soon as I enter the game. I go to load one of the saved games from the shelf there and it tries to start to load, the music plays and then it gets the pop-up crash message on desktop and in the headset is hung in the loading screen. Had a couple saves to try and both crash it.

I can start a new game just fine, but haven't tried saving and loading one of those.

Hi Grebo and Kmacda, the Oculus Store version was patched last night, and that particular bug should be squashed.

We're still working on a more comprehensive Steam patch.

Works great, thanks! Was able to load and continue no problem. Also having free turning makes things a lot more fun, that was a great addition.
