Crashed while I was saving game and lost game. :(
« on: September 25, 2014, 13:14 »

I was trying to recreate my Elite Platinum game (and video) in the graphics version, since people requested it, and at the end of Phobos Lab, I saved it going into Phobos Anomaly and the game crashed and didn't generate a saved game or a mortem.  :(  (In related news, I have a nice video of me getting up to Phobos Anomaly if anyone wants to see it)  :P  I don't know if it's related to the fact that I was playing the graphics version or the fact that I deleted the player.wad and similar files (I tried to turn it into the equivilant of a fresh install by deleting any files that were created after I unzipped the game, including info.xml log.txt mortem.txt player.wad score.wad) or something else entirely?  All I know is that I'm reluctant to try again until I figure out what happened.

Here's the error message:

That sucks man. Never encountered any errors myself, but i can imagine the amount of stress causing it, especially when you're trying to accomplish something. Too bad i don't know shit about computers, so i can't help you. :(
