Ok now im starting to get pissed. My bro and I were lvling my new character, then we hit some lag that was so bad we had to stop playing. I come back about an hour later and find that my character somehow turned into a female and was decreased to lvl 1. Had a few pieces of the Oracle set on him and now all those are gone as well. Just like a female to be stealing my stuff!

Certain that your brother didn't play a "joke" on you?

Your brother probably deleted your character and made a female character with the same name. That is the only explanation. If he isn't too big a jerk, he'll have copied the original save game somewhere else.

My friend's girlfriend pulled that one on him in Everquest a few years ago because he played the game too much for her liking.

So in other words, your char is now a shemale? Amazing :shifty:

My brother lives 2 states away from me. Unless he has access to my files somehow,(which he doesn't) I don't think so.

And no the save file isnt there. When the character was replaced it saved over the original file and I didn't have a chance to back it up.

It's probably a Backup Saving glitch. Try checking your backup saves if you've installed the new patch.

Did you try to modify your character file? I remember reading somewhere that these types of things happen when you make changes to the character files ... but I may have been hallucinating

That was indeed part of the things that happened when I tried to hex edit my chars while reviewing the game to be able to give more information in my review.

Dunno why it would happen apart from trying to alter the files, but who knows...

kinda hard to modify chars if you cant locate them in the folder :shifty:

Shark

I modfied my chars just so see whats possible and never had any problems with turning into a female! :lol: maybe because I'm already a female?! :happy:

Restore the backup made by the game.

AlphaWolf
07-09-2006, 09:05 PM
There is no backup.... I just said that a while ago. It was overwritten when the sex change occured.

AlphaWolf
07-09-2006, 09:05 PM
Meaning the backup contains the shemale as well.

Shark
07-09-2006, 09:09 PM
The backup is useless anyway... never heard that it did any good lol.

Marine OKeefe

The backup does plenty good its a complete copy and paste of your save file. The Backup most definitely does exist unless someone manually deleted it. its created every time the game saves.

Lillis

So... The original save-files are kept in docs/my games/etc. Where are the backup save-files?

Marine OKeefe
07-09-2006, 09:47 PM
Inside the folder of your character's name, there will be a folder called backup, with the backup in it.

Shark

The backup normally just gets corrupted too...

Yeah, this is a known issue with Iron Lore. I guess they still don't know how to fix it yet.
