Corrupted save files whenever KerbalEdu starts

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello,
I am experiencing issues with current KerbalEdu. When the application starts, very often it wipes, corrupts, or reverts the content of the "saves" directory to some old save.

The workaround I recommend to my students is to back up the saves after quitting the game for a day and restoring the backup after launching the game during the following lesson.

Is there a better fix for this problem?

Used game version is KerbalEdu 1.3.1.1891 Windows x64

Hello,

Sorry for answering so late. I probably don't check these forums often enough.

The newest version of KerbalEdu has a TeacherGaming Desk enabled cloud save system that might not be working properly for you for some reason. You can disable it by adding the line tgCloudSavesDisabled = False to the edusettings.cfg file in the installation directory. Please try that and see if it helps (unless you have found some other way to fix it already).

Only some saves appear to get uploaded/downloaded...

at what point do the saves uploaded to the server...for example, at "Return to main Menu" or at ID Logout, or at "Save Game/Quicksave"? 

Perhaps under specific user conditions or internet connection drops, etc there is not enough time to upload a complete new save properly or there is no retry or file integrity check ?

For now, I have been using S.A.V.E mod to backup & restore saves

Hello,

They are supposed to get uploaded when the game is saved (either automatic or a quicksave). Though internet connection drops might be one culprit it also seems that there are some bugs in the cloud save system. I need to fix it for the next version of KerbalEdu. In the meantime I recommend setting the gCloudSavesDisabled = False in the edusettings.cfg file if you are having problems.
