saving crash, and corrupting saves
So I have 2 versions of the game, the original and I somewhat recently got and installed heart of gold.
Come to find that sometimes when i try to save, its incredibly counter-productive, because instead the game crashes and often forces me to end the task in task manager, and of course it doesn't save anything. Often when I restart game and try to play on my latest save, that save is now corrupted and I have to use the save before it to continue.
So for example, say I'm playing from save 'f', and save on save-name 'g' and then game crashes, when i come back in the game 'g' is gone, and my most recent save 'f', is corrupted. By that I mean that if i try to play with this save, the game crashes when I try to make a new save. Doesn't matter if that save is an overwritten one or a new save-name. It doesn't always happen that the game crashes but I'd say its about a 1 in 5 chance or less.
