Default AATF: save games crashes

Playing a mission in AATF I made two safe game files. Returning to the mission, the second file will cause the game to crash.
Starting over from the first working file I have med three new save game files - all will make the game crash.

I have attached the files that will not work. Anyone who can work out what the problem is?

It seems to be the first save game file (attached) that somehow is causing the problems.
I have tried making new save games, down to ten seconds after, but they keep crashing on start.

This is getting spooky. Started all over - again no problem with the first save game, the following two crashes?!?

I had no problems with the safe games I made yesterday, in the 3rd Afghanistan mission.

Recently I decided to give this another go.

I moved the save games to a pen drive and started a new game of that mission. This time it worked fine. So somehow (corrupted) save games can influence the game, eventhough they are not used.

A piece of advice: Don't enter the target until you have airsupport 150 mins in game. Some of the enemy units will be impossible to destroy without airsupport. On two separate occasions a sniper and a MMG would deplete a platoon worth of its AK ammo, and still survive?

Shorty,

I am unable to replicate your problem, but it sounds like you might be having a drive problem. Have you tried replicating this error on another computer?

I think I did that back then, but did it this evening just to make shure:

- Copied the old save games to an old laptop - same result:
I can load the first save game - all others will crash:
"Runtime error!
Program (link on hardrive)
Abnormal program termination"

This will also happen if I make a new save game, and try loading from that.

- The recent save games work just fine on the old pc too.

I get the same error with all but the first saved game. What I was not able to replicate was the phenomenon where just putting the other save games in the same folder as the save game that still works causes a crash.

Are you still getting this problem, or did it just happen that once?

Copied the files back from the pen drive. Yes - exactly the same thing:

All the save games but the first will crash.

The ones I recentle made, starting all over, works fine. Even with the old ones in the same folder.

All I can figure is that the savegame files were somehow corrupted during saving. Let me know if you see the behavior with any other savegame files.

Sorry for the issues.
