I was on turn 16 with Crimea having just took Istanbul. I was getting tired so I saved the game and then clicked 'Exit to Windows" my system changed screens, then took me to the "Napoleon: Total War has stopped Working" message box. After windows "searched" for a solution, it allowed me to close the box thus closing out the game. Upon a restart, neither the saved game I made or the autosave will load; I get a CTD when the load bar is at about 1/4.
New games start up fine, in fact, I saved a new game after one turn and it will load. What is going on? What makes a saved game corrupt or have the inability to load? Are they gone?
-Restarting Steam, then DM
- Going Offline in Steam
- Deleting the pref.script
- Banging my head on my keyboard
I'm starting to think I'm not cut out for using mods on some games. I am the worst nightmare for modders; I know enough to poke around and get things going, but not enough to fix my own issues.
Thanks for your help,
