Skirmish admirals deleted after game freeze

Postby jack varus » 19 October 2016, 22:31

I've had a couple of instances of losing my single player skirmish admirals.
BFG locks up after a few games quite often, I'm not sure what the cause is- I can only hypothesize that it's a window popping up in the OS and trying to pull out of fullscreen. I can't find out for sure though because the computer simply locks and nothing will get a response so diagnostics are impossible.
Upon launching the game again, the admiral I had been using in the skirmish window is simply gone. I'd just unlocked my first Demiurg vessel playing with a friend so it was a little annoying. I'm going to guess the save was corrupted and there's no way to get it back.

Please run BFGA in Windowed mode in order to check if there is a notification (or something else) while running the game:

Click on OPTIONS and select 'Windowed' from WINDOW TYPE.
Click on OK and restart the game.

We recommend to scan your computer with AdwCleaner https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdown ... dwcleaner/ and Malwarebytes (free edition) https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/

Thanks for the advice on windowed mode (I hadn't thought to check for a fullscreen window. Oops. I'm fairly confident the pop up would be a notification my motherboard sends after my CPU hits a certain temperature. I've moved recently and it is extremely hot in my room, my computer can't take it, in spite of fairly aggressive liquid cooling.

And see if your profile is here.
If it was, can you add it in reply to this post in an archive please?

Thank you.
