Crashes to desktop as soon as the profile is loaded

Congratulations on launching on steam!

Haven't logged on for a long while, since my local ISP is giving me a hard time connecting to desktopdungeons.net. Got the steam key and installed. The game crashes the moment I logged in.

And then every time I load, it first freezes on the loading screen (since I'm already logged in, it automatically starts loading the online profile), and then crashes as soon as the profile is loaded.

Here's what it looks like:

Dunno what went wrong. :cry:

Managed to stay logged out, and the game seems to be running fine. I guess I'll start a new kingdom first...

Yikes, keep us posted on this. Maybe one of the other guys already has a solution but we'll get on it.

Bump because the game still crashes after the recent updates.

Is there a crash log or something because right now I have absolutely no idea what happened.

Have you tried moving your Saves directory elsewhere? You might be having problems with a corrupt savegame... You're using DD.net right?

Please could you upload your savegame somewhere for us to see if we can recreate the problem too?

WOAH.

So I log on the web version and it's okay. (My internet has been rather unstable recently, and I hadn't been able to play the web version for a while) Now I run the steam version and it.... works. :shock:

Probably there's some conversion problem with the old beta save online and the steam version, so when I reload and save the progress on the web version again, it got solved.

Prior to this, my savegame paths are all empty, only one file (default.sav) got written but it's 0 size. Probably because it can't read the old beta save online.

Anyway now it's solved, and hopefully I won't have any more crashes again!
Hope this helps. :P
