Data file corrupted - Bad header

Post by Zannypants on Wed Jun 17, 2015 5:27 pm

After my PC froze up and I restarted it, ran into this. Which is the same case for others that ran into this problem.
My main character is gone, my others are there, but I cannot log in with them. I end up getting that error. I've read the other 3-4 posts about this and haven't been able to fix it.
If I remove the LOD SharedStash file, the error goes away when trying to play other characters. But my shared stash is completely empty. And doing so does not bring back my main character. My character's d2s file is not empty, but only has 1 line of text in notepad+ which is just a continuous line of "NUL". I've tried removing it with and without LOD SharedStash present, and I make no progress.
Where do I go from here?
I can handle having my stash wiped, but if I can't get my character back I'll probably have to call it quits.

Delete the blank stash as it solves a bit of the problem. Your best bet is to try and restore your computer a few days back if you can. If you can't do so, message me with some of your specifications for your character and I'll try to remake him for you.

open the [char name].d2s and _LOD_SharedStashSave.sss files with a txt editor.
tell me if they're empty or have something in them.

if they're not empty, it might be salvageable.

@romanN1 I don't know if it's this error specifically, but i have a similar issue because of the font sometimes. So i just get the "this fix" from aahz's post and replace it again in the PlugY folder and it works.

Looked promising as I was restoring, but no go. I'll message you by the end of the day if I don't make any progress with this. That would be incredibly appreciated.

Tried out the offline tools program and worked with no issues. But you can't raise levels with it and such. So close.

My main character file is in the load options, but get this when I try to upload it. Don't know if it's of any use.
