Please Help! I lost all my game data.

Postby justawrestlingfan » Mon Apr 16, 2018 3:47 am

Sigh.
So my computer froze and i had no choice but to force-shut down it.
After i did that and restarted FPWW i lost all my game data: all my titles, all my wrestlers, all my rings etc.
Furthermore, when i went to the wrestler select screen, my game freezes and all the wrestler slot are filled with "Wrestler 1" "Wrestler 2" etc and all the move slots are filled with "select skill1_0" etc.

Help Please.

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling the game. Sounds like corrupted data. Your old data should be on the cloud still I'd imagine.

Have you used Carlzilla’s mod suite? It does a backup of your game save file in the main game directory where it’s installed

Hmmmm. Did you overwrite your current file with the backup one? Maybe try validating the integrity of your game files? I’m having issues with the game myself :/

How do i overwrite it?
In the FPWBackups folder, the files are marked Save.dat.4-15-2018 and so on

Oh - you might have to change the name of the backup file to match your current save file and then cut and paste to overwrite the old file. I’ve never actually done that but I figure that might be the way. Hopefully someone who knows for sure could help - so I don’t cause any issues

Yeah, the current save file is just called save.dat.

savedata.dat, to clarify.

I back up my game manually by copying that file to my desktop, renaming it with the date, (IE, savedata20180418.dat) and dropping it into a folder of backup saves. If I need to restore, I just cut the date off, put it back, and let it replace the other file.
Also slightly there's something happy, so enjoy it!
