Corrupted .d2s files - Disappearing character

Post by Broken_Column on Thu Feb 26, 2015 6:07 am

Well, long story short, just hit 90, exited the game normally and my paladin has disappeared, along with the PlugY shared stash (other characters get that bad header message)

All his files show up normally in the 'save' folder, but totally unviewable under the single player tab. However, it won't let me create another character with his name, because it's already in use (of course). Also it seems my shared stash is gone. When I open both the .sss and .d2s in notepad I get a total blank. Is the alternative to just constantly back up the save folder?

Anything that can be done? This type of loss will likely be the end of Median for me - just can't get those hours back.

Thanks in advance for your insight.

the only solution is to delete those files

Right click the folder -> properties -> previous versions and see if there are any previously saved versions. If there is (small chance unless you have it configured to do so regularly), it'll probably be at least a week old.

Did the game crash or anything upon exiting?

Actually, no - and the game has crashed in the past without consequences. I'm much more disappointed about the stash being gone (tried to restore, etc)

On an unrelated note - when I go to 1080 x 1920 on multires (native screen resolution) the screen is way off-center, but when I go to 900 x 1600 it's centered and fit to the screen. Odd.

I hope you didn't install the game in program files.

I did - why shouldn't I have? That's where vanilla cLod was installed.
