Game Crashed (Java Error) Can't Continue Saved Game
« on: April 09, 2016, 02:48:18 AM »

I was playing a game with mods
(same as Nemo's latest plays, except without Knight's Templar because the mod thread says it's not compatible with 0.72a yet).

Quote
Error loading saved game:
Error loading game. See starsector.log for details.

It's possible that the save game is from an
incompatible version, or was created with mods
that are now disabled.


Mods are as follows

Starsector+ 3.4.0
Nexerelin 0.7.4d
LazyLib 2.1
TwigLib 0.6.11
zz MusicLib 3.1.0+
zz ShaderLib Beta 1.2.1


Autosave 1.0d
Combat Chatter 1.04
Common Radar 2.2
Console Commands 2.7
Simulator Overhaul 1.2
Version Checker 1.6


Shadowyards 0.6.0.5
New Galactic Order 1.04c
Blackrock Driveyards 0.8.5
Diable Avionics 1.62
Junk pirates/ASP/PACK 2.55
Steiner Foundation 1.0.2


It says to check the .log file for errors,
but that file is BIG.
50,000 kb log file.



Any thoughts on how I should go about troubleshooting this?

Only the stuff at the very end of the log will be relevant; in particular the stacktrace is what's needed.

Without seeing the log, 1st guess would be out of memory 'cos you're not using a 64bit VM with appropriate cmdline switches. (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=8726.0)

Also, wrong forum - should be in Bugs->Modded.

My apologies for the wrong section.

Actually, I am running the game with the 64bit JRE.

My system is aging, but I think it's still well above the recommended spec for a modded game?

There's a campaign.xml.bak in the save folder - you can try to go back to your previous save using that. Would still be nice to see what the end of the log says, though (last couple hundred lines or so - enough to fit the stack trace). Did it crash while you were trying to save, by chance?

Ok, I'm flipping through my various save folders (I've done lots of saves).
I've located to the offending save, the time stamp matches the one in-game.
This folder doesn't seem to contain an campaign.xml.bak,

Only seems to have:
- campaign.xml
- descriptor.xml

It seems only some of my save folders have .bak files?
I pretty sure I wasn't trying to save, but don't quote me on that.

I have uploaded that folder here if somebody wants to take a peek:

I'm not super attached to the save, just hoping it'll help you guys out for bug fixes :)
