The X-Com Files / Re: Bugs, crashes, typos & bad taste

Sorry, without a save I can't say anything. There have been no other reports of any problems with this mission, so I have no idea where to start.

If you still can't upload the file for any reason (though I can't see any potential one), you could join the X-Com Files Discord channel and just drop it there in #bugreports.

I can upload the file now. Weird. Maybe I couldn't because it was my first post and I wasn't fully approved yet?

Anyway, now that I can upload it, I don't actually need to. Looking at the save file I see that it's so much smaller than every other save file I have. Weirdly, it seems to have deleted every line that doesn't have to do with the battle. I'm guessing that I get a game over when I load it because the file doesn't have any XCOM bases, so I guess the game thinks the aliens won?

Have you ever seen saves getting ruined like this?

Hello! I've been playing for a couple of weeks now, though I'm a first time poster. I have a recurring crash every time I play the Exalt HQ mission. I can't seem to figure out what triggers the crash, but I am unable to load my game (saved in-mission) after the crash. At first, I was playing a version of the game from about a month ago, and attempting to load the game after the crash would cause the program to crash. So I updated to the latest version, and now when I try to load that game it will not crash, but it will not let me load it either. Instead I get an error message saying "yaml-cpp: error at line 895, column 7: end of verbatim tag not found". Opening up the save file and looking at line 895 (the last line) shows "!<" (without the quotation marks). Removing this line and attempting to load the game leads to automatic game over where the aliens take over the Earth.

I can post the save file and my log, but I can't seem to find how to do it. Is it a privilege I don't have on account of being new to the board?

Edit: Just checked my version from the save file. Previously I was playing 6.3.1, and I just upgraded to 6.3.4.
