[Solved] I can't load my saved game
« on: May 30, 2009, 11:06:44 AM »
Whenever I try load a file I get this error.



Load failed

Could not load your save file!  Details below:
System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.
   at System.Number.StringToNumber(String str, NumberStyles options, NumberBuffer& number, NumberFormatInfo info, Boolean parseDecimal)
   at System.Number.ParseDouble(String value, NumberStyles options, NumberFormatInfo numfmt)
   at System.Double.Parse(String s, NumberStyles style, NumberFormatInfo info)
   at System.Convert.ToDouble(String value)
   at AIWar.GameForm.DoLoadGame(String Filename) in C:\vcprojs\AIWar\GameFormParts\NetworkHandling.cs:line 1194

Hi Shadow Hornet,

Thanks for reporting this; I apologize for the inconvenience there.  I was able to duplicate your problem (it affected the trial version only), and it will be fixed in the version 1.004 release that will be coming out this next week (for both trial and full version players).  To get an advance copy of the 1.004 version (this advance copy should be stable, but is not the fully tested and finalized version), you can download it from this link:  http://www.arcengames.com/share/AIWar1004D.zip

Then unzip it into your game folder (usually C:\Program Files\Arcen Games\AI War\ unless you specified something else).  Please make sure that your unzip process keeps the folder structure from the zip file, rather than just unpacking all of the files into the base target directory.  

For anyone else reading this:  this update requires that you already have version 1.003 of the game installed.  And when the final version of 1.004 comes out next week, you can still install that over top of 1.004D without any issues.

Version 1.004D will be able to load your prior failing savegames without any issues, plus it will not have this issue with new savegames it creates.  So that should resolve the problem from every angle, but if you still have any issues then please do let us know.  Thanks for playing!
