Alright, I've pretty much gotten back to the point I was at by now anyways.

Do you know why or how it was corrupted and how to prevent it from happening again?

Re: Can't Load Save Games

What happens if you simply delete the nulls? I've attached a modified savegame (I can't test as I don't have a recent version of OpenMW) Note you have to expand using 7zip first Unfortunately that won't work either, however that produces a different error log Failed to load saved game: ESM Error: R...

Re: Can't Load Save Games

All sfc tells you is that your operating system is intact. I think the command he was thinking of is chkdsk. However, that still doesn't actually check if the contents of files is bad. If it comes back with a lot of errors, then it means your drive is definitely dead, but it coming back fine isn't ...

So I ran both /verify and /scannow and both! came back error-less.

What now I guess?

Re: Can't Load Save Games

This should be something that is solved by the filesystem, not necessarily by the application. See ZFS for example that will check for file corruption (bit rot) and correct for it during scrubbing/resilvering. Until that time where this 'feature' becomes wide spread, then perhaps some time of manif...

No shit? Is there any save file cleaner for OpenMW? Or any means to do so at all?

Re: Can't Load Save Games

The strange thing is that I played the previous night, no issues, next day I download some mods, remove a few, start the game up and get an error saying something like "OpenMW could not play without a settings.cfg" I opened the file and it had NULL repeated entirely filing up the file. So I go back,...
