Skirmish Admiral Gone

Postby Scorch715 » 05 October 2016, 16:28

Decide to load up BFG for a quick skirmish game, click through to the space marines, and promptly discover my Imperial Fists admiral has disappeared for no reason, taking with it my favourite and highest ranked ships. Bloody brilliant.

This is the second time one of my admirals has spontaneously disappeared, the first being an IN fleet a week after release. Then, I accepted it as a glitch from a new game. Now, I've lost the only fleet I really play. Anyone else had this? And I don't suppose anyones got a magic method of recovering the admiral?

Hi Scorch715,

There is two way to delete a skirmish profile:
- In-game with the delete profile button. But I don't think you did that.
- Delete your Battlefleet Gothic:Armada folder in your AppData.

Doing an update or uninstall the game never delete this folder.

Can you verify that your save is still here: C:\Users\"PC Name"\AppData\Local\BattleFleetGothic\Saved\SaveGames\Profile

If it's here can you copy/paste it and replace the oldest by the copu?
If it doesn't work, can you add it in reply to this post with a .rar archive?

If it'snt here, maybe it was deleted by a cleaner software from your computer.

Thank you.

Can definitely confirm I didn't click the delete option. I can't find the save anywhere, and the location you said to look in doesn't appear to exist on my computer (or at least I can't locate it anywhere that makes sense). In any case, most likely the problem is at my end. Thanks for the help though.

Hi,

The folder is hidden.
You need to unhide it.

WINDOWS 7
Click 'Organize' from the top left then 'Folder and search options'.
Click the tab 'View' and check 'Show hidden files, folders and drives' under 'Hidden files and folders' from 'Advanced Settings'.
Click the button 'OK'.

WINDOWS 8/WINDOWS 10
Click the tab 'View' and check 'Hidden items'.

I feel like a right nonce now :lol: yeah, the saves for the profile are here (the save and the Meta save). What do I need to do with this/these files?

Can you add an archive of these two files in response to this thread please?

I'll send it to developpers to check their integrity.

Thank you.
