Game crashed, now unable to load save

Recommended Posts

I created a save earlier this evening, and saved it right when it was created. I played for 2 months, autosaving every second week. During one of those, the game suddenly crashed, and when I reopened the game, I could only choose between a save called with "new" in brackets next to the name of my save. The other save was the save from the first day of the season. When I try to load the save with (new), it simply says "the save game could not be loaded". No autosaves was there

I doubt anything could be done to get the save back, but nonethelss, this is very frustrating.

Sounds like you are using the single file autosave and so any issue with that file will cause a corruption.  You may be best to use the rolling 3 game autosave option and set it to weekly and you will always have a couple of recent backups.

I actually use the 3 file rolling autosave. But none of those 3 autosaves shows up at all.

Are you saving manually at any point, say with the Ctrl + S? If you save, the clock restarts on when the autosaves happen. How regular did you have the auto saves set to? Weekly, monthly etc? 

Also when you save how do you do so? Via auto save or manually? When you exit the game, do you 'Save and Exit', or do you normally save then exit separately? Do you ever shut your system down with the game still open, or go into hibernation or sleep mode?

When you do shut your system down, do you click Start -> Power -> Shut Down, or do you just hold down the power button?

Also do you have any kind of anti-virus installed? If so, what type?

Did you have a look in the Games folder?

I did. Like in the game, only "HSV" and "HSV(new)" are there. The one being from the first day of the season, and the other being impossible to open,

No, I was not, not apart from the save I did when the game started, at the first time of the season. It autosaved every second week.

On this exact game, I only saved via autosave, apart from the first one. Usually, I save, and then exit afterwards. It does sometime go into sleep mode, and rarely I do shut it down after saving, without exiting. This are only on other saves though, as I never got to do it on this.

I do click start > power > shut down.

I have AVG Free installed.

Okay AVG has been known to cause issues with Steam and FM in the past. I'd suggest reading the following including the part about uninstalling and reinstalling FM and let us know if it helps:

Thanks.

Okay I did try that, and it all seemed to work, untill a few minutes ago, where it crashed during half-time with some "staging" message. So I assume it's not the anti-virus program, that's causing my game to crash?

This will be a different issue - are you running any custom graphics/logos/add-ons etc? If so, if you remove them do you encounter the same crash during a match?
