Saves in ECWolf 1.3.1 disappear after the close of the game

Post by GreenDoomguy1999 » Mon May 11, 2015 21:19

I found a strange bug
I passed a modification Spear Revisited for ECWolf and made a save on a difficult moment
But after I closed ECWolf and went again saves were not :shock:
I forgot to say that saves disappear under any modifications

So you say "under any modifications" so the saves work fine running vanilla content? Can you give an example of one of the mods you tried? How do you load the mod (command line, batch file, drag and drop, etc)? You can go to %AppData%\ecwolf and see if any files are being created there.

The last sentence of my last post is still relevant.

Sure. The main thing I'm concerned about is if somehow there's a problem writing to your AppData directory or if ECWolf is just not loading the saves for some reason.

This is the folder where you want to put WL6 / SOD files?

On XP, yes. The easiest way to get there is to just type in the address bar of the file browser and put: %AppData%\ecwolf.

Someone on Steam reported the same problem on Windows 7 and reports that ECWolf is making the saves, but not showing them when starting again. If the same is happening to you, you should zip up your save files (.ecs) and then send them to me (probably the best way is via email).
