    Icon3 Save bug solution? should it be so easy?

    Hi!
    i experienced a very interesting thing. My first campaign with austria has been destroyed after 33 rounds because of crushed save games. I had about 7 save games and saved several times with the quick save. The CTD-Mania started in round 22.

    so i started a new campaign with GB. Now im in round 46 and i have 1 save game! NO CTDs at all!

    So my thesis: ETW has probs with multiple save games...

    Solution: Only have 1 save?

    My Question: i have no proof for this thesis, so please post your experiences!

    I will back this theory up as have only had one save game so far since buying and playing the game, have had no problems so far:hmmm:

    I have another 2 (I think) save games and the one of Prussia that I am using is at 1720, which beats out the British 1706, which constantly crashed. My thought on this would be the first game always screws up, but the second is fixed. I still have a lot more turns to go, so I might be wrong.

    I have always multiple save games and never encountered that bug. At least not since I don't use my agents to steal technology. That's one sure way to corrupt your save files to steal technology.

    I steal technology and have no experienced any corrupt saves. Whoever spread that "idea" is a liar.

    well i had that problem with 3 campaigns now, and 2 out of the 3 it might have something to do with agents as well as not. in my actual campaign (i wonder how i could arse myself to ANOTHER ONE) im well into the '50ies and i saved every other year, so i had like 1,5 GB of savegames for that campaign alone, and until now, it hasn't died on me. in this one, the only thing i've done with my gentlemen was research in my own schools.

    so it both may or may not be true

    the stealing tech rumor is bogus. i think u might be on to something with the 1 saved game theory though.

    I have multiple save-games and multiple campaigns and the save-game crash only occurred in my second or third campaign.

    -> Thesis proven to be wrong, end of story.

    I've got about thirty savegames n my current campaign, and the only crash I've had thus far has been because my laptop overheated.
    I agree, with notger, theory refuted.

    I have heard that Austria is the least bugged faction, with the leasat amount of "possible" CTD's. Also I've heard that saving your game with 6-10 letters is your best choise and without any spaces. But I can't back up any of these. All I can say is that I've had no CTD with austria so far, I have more than 1 save for it. But then there is all the instability issues so I crash every now and then still ^^

    all my saved games were lost, i cant start any of them without a CTD.

    I have completely reinstalled the game, and my saved games are still there! Does anybody know where they are so i can delete them?

    Well I started up my british campaign which is at turn 37 post patch and I still have the same CTDs. Whenever I take Calcutta the game crashes and I have this stuck general, if I move him the game crashes.

    I'm gonna try to start a new game and hope for the best
