Now when I attempt to start BG1 and load the quicksave, that save does not even show though the folder exists on the HD.

If so, I am affected. I tried your tool, but it states "Invalid file: E:\BaldursGateTutu\save�0000001-Quick-Save\BALDUR.SAV (invalid save game file header)"

Could that be a Vista problem? skalek have you Vista?

@skalek

You probably have an auto-save before your broken quicksave. Does the auto-save load? If no, is it fixable by the crash fixer?

I think I had one or two very rare occurrences where my saves were not reparable.

People who want to translate Beregost Crash Fixer can now do so.

Here is Russian in the UTF-8 codepage, and thank you very much for the tool!

Edited: as it turned out, the translation text must looks like this
frame = Beregost Crash Fixer
fileMenu = \u0424\u0430\u0439\u043B (F)
exit = \u0412\u044B\u0445\u043E\u0434
langMenu = \u042F\u0437\u044B\u043A (L)

Here is the translation in French. I assumed the shortcuts were fixed so I left the original ones even if they didn't match the first letter of the menu option in French. Feel free to adjust to use the first letter of the word if the program is reading the actual shortcut from the character in parentheses.

Thanks

Hi everyone,

maybe I found a clue to the Beregost crash mystery: As long as I play a main character that I create at the beginning
of the game everything is fine and I can enter and exit Beregost without the game crashing. But if I import a character
from a character file or saved game, the game crashes upon entering Beregost (even with a character imported from
a game in which entering Beregost works). My savefiles do not get corrupted (unloadable) by these crashes.
Please, everyone, think about if your corrupted save files have imported characters or genuinely created ones.
I hope this helps in pinpointing the whereabouts of the bug.

@Ascension64: If no one has translated the Crash Fixer into german by tomorrow, I'll do it for you.

Not sure if it's true for everyone though.
No, no German translation yet.

German translation is done. I added the readme.



Edit: I was able to reproduce the crash with 100% accuracy when I tried to enter Beregost for the first time
with a character of level 4 or above. The problem seems not to be related to the XP accumulated by the time
entering Beregost, since the game does not crash when a warrior with 8000XP, but prior to levelling up to level 4
enters the town. But having levelled up the crash occurs. A mage with 8000XP and lvl. 3 may enter Beregost
without error. 10000XP and not levelled up works, while after levelling up entering produces a crash.
The occurance I posted before was a direct effect of this since the first character I imported was way beyond lvl.4
and the second character I tried this with (Warrior/Mage/Thief) had just turned lvl.4 in the thief aspect. In the game
I originally played the character I entered Beregost before this.
So as long there is no final fix for this problem, make sure to enter Beregost before hitting lvl. 4

Please let it be known if you are able to verify my findings.

Hey, having a problem with the Fixer not working. Can't reenter Beregost and have had no problems loading and saving many files since last leaving Beregost. Wondered if you would take a look at the save file.

Using Tutu on a Vista machine. In the past I've been able to get around the problems with Vista's UAC to get the fixer to run successfully. This time when I ran the Fixer it reported no problems. This is the first time I've had a problem with your utility. Thanks for making it btw. It's saved me in the past many times.

Not right. We have Beregost crashes with a new beginning character, like you know, now. ;)

German translation is done. I added the readme.

Thank you very much. It is not much text, but we have not the time, to translate it until now. And thanks for translating the readme. :)

@Leomar: Disregard the created/imported character thing from my first post. I misjudged what happened. I was able to circumvent the crash by reducing my lvl. 13 warrior (1.3mio XP) who always crashed the game upon entering Beregost to lvl 3 (4000 XP) via shadow master and resetting the lvl/XP to the former value after entering. Since I did this I can freely enter and leave Beregost with this character. I suggest there are multiple reasons that crash Beregost seperatly. The character from Xenocide's save game btw. IS a lvl 4 thief.

@ Xenocide: Could you please try to reduce your thief's level to 3 (with shadow master) and enter Beregost. If it works you can reset your XP/lvl to the original level.
Hope it helps.

But, has anyone tested my idea yet? With the help of the console it is a matter of 5 minutes. Just for the consistency of the procedure: Leave Candlekeep without talking to anyone (not even Imoen) except Gorion or changing item setup. After the cutscene go south to high hedge and create a seperate save game at the eastern border before going to Beregost. Then try to enter Beregost. It should work fine. Then reload the manual savegame and raise the XP in steps.

Oh I should add that the fixer reported no error in my save file and that it did not become unloadable after the crash (neither Auto, Quick, nor the regular saves).


Regards,
WangXu

I just lowered the level of the main character (and then tried with all the characters) but still getting the crash. I've also entered Beregost earlier in this game.

I don't think the crash is level based. I've seen it before in games and I don't think I've ever played a game where I entered Beregost for the first time prior to hitting 4th level.

No problem, I won't have time to play again before then anyways. Stupid deadlines at work.
