Not unexpected sadly. I noticed when I went to my save game menu that all my old save games had a reddish background, but I just deleted them, expecting them to be incompatible :stuck_out_tongue: .

Yer, unfortunately at the moment there is no way for the team to ensure that saves will carry over to new versions of the game unbroken - so we just have to accept that updating will currently break saves.


I knew saves could be incompatibel, it’s the errormessage I got which made post a report, as it can help in debugging to make saves compatible in the future :wink:
