Game crashes on pressing 'save' in every paksets
« on: July 18, 2021, 01:01:28 PM »
When I click the 'save' button in the pakset, it seems to constantly crash. I'm using Windows 10.

And I found that no matter what my map is about, it still crashes.

Can I check whether you are using the Standard or Extended version of Simutrans?

There aren't any error messages produced. Whenever I press the 'save' button in the menu in every paksets, the game simply crashes.

Thank you for confirming - I have moved this to the Standard bug reports section.

Thanks, I also found that the bug is also present in Steam version, but it's absent in Simutrans Extended.

Which game version are you using?
Try deleting _cached.xml in your save folder.

The file _chaed.xml is in the folder with the saved games, under windows by default in my documents\simutrans\save

Otherwise maybe the nightly works better: https://github.com/aburch/simutrans/releases (somehow the windows nightly do not correctly update).

Well why was that file present in the folder? Is the file hacked?

No, it is just a cache file, so that simutrans does not have to touch each savegame each time the load/save window is opened.
