History

#1 Updated by Nicholas Green over 3 years ago

  • Subject changed from Crash when returning to main menu in BG:EE from either Baldur's Gate EE or Siege of Dragonspear launchers to Crash when clicking "save" main menu in BG:EE from either Baldur's Gate EE or Siege of Dragonspear launchers

#2 Updated by Nicholas Green over 3 years ago

Correction; wrong about existing games not crashing when save is clicked. Siege of Dragonspear games are ok though.

#3 Updated by Richard Hilton over 3 years ago

Could you zip and attach the entire save please(the 0000nnnnn-savename folder plus gam, sav and bmp's within it)
Thanks

#4 Updated by Nicholas Green over 3 years ago

I found a workaround in the Baldur's Gate forum thread https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/50322/cant-save-game ; by renaming my Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition folder under My Documents and letting the game automatically create a new folder I can save again with no problems. It seems like the issue goes beyond one save game, so I'm uploading the entire BG:EE folder under which saves weren't working.

  • Description updated (diff)
  • Status changed from New to Submitted

Original report:
Started new game in BG:EE after installing Siege of Dragonspear, visited main menu to save, but screen froze and windows trilled with the pop-up sound, which said that the game encountered an error and needed to close. Restarted game, loaded the auto-save and continued playing. Happened again when I visited the main menu after completing the prologue.
Seems to happen with new BG:EE games; Existing BG:EE saves and Siege of Dragonspear saves don't trigger the crash.
