[1.1.72] Error: Map loading failed: Invalid bool loaded from input file.

Post by Unkwn_43 »

After asking on the Factorio subreddit, I was directed to make a post here to see if my situation is salvageable.

I have found a previous instance of this exact issue on the forums: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=102529
I was playing the game normally, autosaves every 15 minutes caused no issues, performed a final save before exiting via the pause menu, and then exiting the main menu by pressing "exit".

The next time I start the game (several days later), there are no issues on startup, but my manual save and all three autosaves display the same message: "Invalid bool loaded from input file. File could be corrupted". As mentioned above, I was advised to ask on the forums if the save file could possibly be partially recovered.

I have a lot of mods enabled, to which I have made manual adjustments in the code. As I don't remember all of the mods I made changes to, I uploaded the entire mod folder:
mod folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing
save in question: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oO4iYk ... sp=sharing
Attempting to open the manual save, along with all three autosaves
