Re: "Notice" poping up every time I want to save game

Post by sparkylicious21 » Sat Mar 02, 2019 6:31 am

I have the same issue every time I go to make a manual save. I played through the first campaign mission before starting a new game as I was curious to see what was new in the campaign. I don't know if the error is because of something tied to the new campaign, as in going through the new campaign causes the error to pop up. Or if it is tied to something else, and it just pops up when you go to save the game. I don't see any other issues other than the error message, but it is annoying to have to close it every time I go to save.

Does this error happen whn you select a save from one of the old campaigns?

It happens whenever I try to save a game. It can be a brand new map or an existing save, as soon as you go Menu > Save game, the error immediately pops up. I suspect it might be iterating over the saved games as I have some from the old campaign, and if I select those in the save list, the error pops up again. It probably needs to only display that error if you click on one of the old campaign saves, rather than immediately upon displaying the save window.

I should also have said that it's still an issue on 0.17.5

I can confirm that it happens on both old and new saves. Campaign or free play..it doesn't matter.
It pops up when I click "Save game", and I have to close it by clicking CONFIRM, escape key doesn't work sadly, then I save the game, and it pops up again!
Just tried in 0.17.6, still the same. Mods/no mods - doesn't matter

Still happening on 0.17.7 but I've verified that deleting my old campaign saves (the "A New Hope" ones) means that this message no longer pops up.

The bug therefore is better summarised as: "Error appears on the save game screen whenever old 0.16 campaign save games are present"

These errors are irrelevant anyway as the old saves cannot be loaded in 0.17. It should just ignore them unless a player tries to load an unsupported 0.16 save.

Are you saying that I have to delete every save prior to 0.17 in order to fix this?

Also, I noticed that this bug report is under "Campaign/Scenario issues". That's not true, at least not in my case.
Notice pops up in freeplay also. It pops us anytime I want to save a game, and also after I saved it.

I don't believe it's a campaign issue either. This really should be moved to the main bug report forum as it affects the save game screen globally.

And no, you don't have to delete every 0.16 save, only 0.16 saves that were of the campaign missions. At least, that's what fixed it for me.

Sure, here's all the details. The log file doesn't show anything unusual however I have attached an old campaign save that will reliably reproduce the issue. I performed these tests on 0.17.8.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Copy the attached save to the Factorio saves directory (or have an existing game with an old 0.16 campaign save)
  2. Start a new game, or load any save game
  3. Go to Menu > Save game
  4. You are immediately presented with the dialog below
    Image
  5. Additionally, if you then click "Confirm" and select the old save in the save window, you'll see a similar error pop up along with a notice that the save file is invalid or corrupt...
    Image
If you delete the invalid or corrupt save file from your saves folder and restart the game, the issue no longer occurs.

Great explanation, PantherX!

Everything he describes was happening to me also. I just removed 0.16 campaign saves and no more error.

Same here. Linux, amd64, Steam.

I never had 0.16 installed on this machine, however I did play 0.16 before, so maybe it was stored and then restored from Steam Cloud.
