Lost my progress

Postby choongmyoung on Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:02 am

I thought I was doing cloud sink normally, because I saw the error message quite a lot times that I can't exit the game while a cloud save. Today I cloud sink'd the game file based on online file, and my progress is gone now.
Dev, could you please search the log and somehow resurrect the game file?

My ID e-mail adress is choongmyoung@naver.com and kingdom name is Green.

I've restored your backup from the 11th, that's the only one other than yesterday's that was available, I copied yesterday's too, just in case. Let me know if that works.

When I try to log in, the error occurs. I can't log in.

EDIT: Strangely, my progresses are kinda restored - except for few things. Sorcerer and Bloodmage on every dungeon, Demonic Library's Hoarder badge, Berserker Camp's Warmonger badge and Doubledoom's Warmonger badge.

And my Mage Tower is at lv1. Ah, that's why I lost Sorcerer and Bloodmage. But their challenges are all completed-what?
And the game reports an error when I click the Explorer's Guild.

And I don't have Adult Zapplin. Is the name correct?

I can log in at the main menu (before game start) but nothing gets better.

As I talked with choongmyoung it seems like he somehow cloud synced the mod, though choongmyoung claimed he was using mod in a different directory.
Anyway, I restored his progress and buildings, there is only puzzles error which is left.

Can't I get fresh dll files about the puzzles to fix the error? Are the progress and puzzles involved in dll files all in complicated mess so it can't be fixed in this way?

I realized I have a old external HDD which has a whold backup of my D drive. So I logged out of the game, copied the files from my external HDD, log in, and synced to my local file. It worked, so I have no problem at this time.

Also my external HDD had backup of the mod, so I copied the files from my external HDD and played it, and it showed this message:

So the problem is now defined: for the whole time, mod has been saved to the online cloud. That's the problem and I have no problem at that time. I won't play the mod before the saving problem be fixed.

Ah, it might be best to play the mod with a different save file - or to make sure you're not logged in when playing the mod.

I guess I missed this post. Unless dislekcia proves me wrong, Extreme Edition content doesn't get saved to the cloud. As you can see on the screenshot, online save correctly shows that the latest quest is Dark Souls (original quest), while local save shows the latest quest as Proselytizing (mod quest). There is nothing wrong with this screenshot.

Actually, if you don't care about rainbows in mod, you can rename your kingdom (go to Saves folder and rename Green to Green_EE or whatever) and use this kingdom in mod. This way, even if somehow synced to the cloud, it won't interfere with your original kingdom progress simply because of different name. The only downside of doing this is Green_EE won't have any runs / progress because they are bind to Green kingdom.

Not only mod attempts to log you out should you run the mod while logged in, it also disables all buttons related to Cloud Save feature to prevent a player from "accidental" sign in.
