After finally getting the game to play again after the last debacle, I had the game corrupt EVERY one of my saved games. and delete my primary saved game. Basically everything ive done just went poof. I am shelving this game for a few months until they can get some bugs worked out. I mean come on....critical errors like this on a game I paid like $50 for is unacceptable..
Insane, man...;) My sympathies...game's been running perfectly here since day 1, and through all the patches thus far. If you aren't running any mods (number one cause of OS 2 problems atm) then I'd suggest a complete reinstallation. If that doesn't work I'd suggest looking at your hardware and OS and installed software very carefully
--because your problems are *definitely* not from the game code...;) There's no doubt about that whatsoever! Good luck--hope you get it sorted! Tough luck, really--it's such a great game.
