corrupted xml data
« on: February 29, 2016, 10:18:14 am »
Hi!

I don't know, it is a linux error.

I play the 2.5 over wine.

There were no errors before. But today I wanted to load a game and I got the error message: corrupted xml data.

Is there a way to correct it per hand?
Where I can find the nessesary .xml file?

Without more information we cannot help you.

The only bug I recall that was similar is the German translation issue which could have corrupted the savegame.

Hm...

I don't found any more information in several logfiles.

Where I find the language files (play under wine)?


Ingame is the 26. april 2085.

Short before I saved, I ended a battlemission with a cannonboat-UFO on ground.

Are you playing in German? If not then it isn't the translation bug, the xml data is in the save game (with a binary header and most likely compressed, so it isn't very straight forward to edit by hand) maybe if you post the problem save we can take a look (see here for info where to find saved games — and lang files)

Thanks at first.

Yes I play in German.

I try to find and edit the lang file.

If it is impossible I send the savegame.

If the game was saved with the malformed translation it has already been corrupted, fixing the language file won't help (but still you should fix it to prevent future corruption: download the source .po from our repo, compile it to a .mo file — either using gettext or poedit — and copy it to the proper location as seen in the link in my previous post)

Unfortunately the updated language file won't fix the corrupted savegame, but will prevent the issue happening again.
