The Save File Repair Utility came with the game, I didn't download it separately. When I launch King's Bounty on Steam it asks me if I want to launch the game itself or the repair utility. As far as I can tell, the tool is just a small .exe file ("save_fixer.exe", 160 KB).
Just to confirm - you have King's Bounty: The Legend only or some KB pack with some other versions also? Maybe this fixer was added with some later part of KB?
I've lurked into Steam forum and found this: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=915705
- unfortunately this guide link forwards me to some standard game FAQ with no word about this fixer - is that because I'm not logged in on forum nor I'm not Steam member or everyone has the same?
BTW: I found this
also and laughed really hard... :o
It might also be interesting to see how the Save File Repair Utility changed the files to make them work.
Yes, I'm going to look for it - maybe I'll be able to get some standalone version...?
I am sure happy I didn't wait for the GOG version to change...After about a week I had a nagging feeling that nothing else would be done for quite awhile, if ever. Sorry you lost your progress Lexor...Still the game is definetly good enough to start all over again if the mood strikes you. :D
Well, yes, I'm sorry I do not have enough time to monitor whole situation every day - I wish and would be happy to.. :(
