Game freezes at generating characters

Postby CrashMonkey » Wed Oct 08, 2008 10:38 pm

The game had been running great for the last couple of hours (damn it's addicting), then crash to the desktop. Now it gets stuck at the generating characters screen, the little bar at the bottom does fill in completely. I've rebooted to make sure windows was clean. I have the latest drivers for both video and sound, and windows is up to date.

I've just been afflicted with this also.

I've even removed the game (through steam) and re-downloaded/installed it.

Same problem.

Could maybe this http://www.tiltedmill.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18867 solve your problem?

I don't think so since it has worked subsequently to the instructions I have above. i thinkit was just file corruption during the crash. i would assume some of the instability issues will get patched out over time. that thread sounds like when people were first loading up, which was not the case here. i had been in game for hours and then had a crash that would not allow me to play that particular character again. subsequent characters are fine.

Could someone experiencing this issue attach the save files for the character that won't load, and we'll have a look? You can find them in your Documents (Vista) or My Documents (XP) folder, in Tilted Mill/Hinterland/saves. There should be four files for the character: a .mis, .sav, .ter, and .ml file. You'll need to zip them up to attach them to a forum post.
