characters won't progress past lvl 12
« on: Jan 29, 2010; 04:36 AM »
Whenever I exit the game and start again, my character has returned to the state it was when I gained level 12. This is the 3rd character this has happened to.

This would be the first time I have ever heard of something like this...um...have you messed with anything?(like using hex)
oh and what mods do you have?(something might be messing with it)

Pop? What pop?
You said you worked magic on me to do away with all the popping.
There should\'nt be any popping.
There\'s protective magic! You said so! Make it protect!

check to see that your charname.HG1 file is not read-only.

right-click on file, left-click on "properties", clear the "read only" box (if it's solid)

Did you by any chance mod your game files yourself? I had the same problem when giving an excess amount of palladium to my character or setting my available attribute- and skillpoints too high...

I'm running a new character through right now and testing some stuff. Could it be a corrupt item. I keep getting this helmet in Temple station I can't get rid of. You can't break it down, only delete it, and after the next save, when I start again, sure enough I'll have it on.
Thanks for the prompt replies.

Have you tried leaving the helmet in your stash? What helmet is it?

don't know how related this is, but i had the same save issues when i ran HGL on win 7 beta. nothing really helped, not even disabling the whole security system. problem vanished with the RC though.

You could also upload your character here and let us test if it'll work on our machines...

I deleted the characters and started new ones. Was really PO'd about one too, because I had just scored on 2 legendary Odachi's. That char was like lvl 16 and the first with the save glitch. I had just killed Abaddon and got greedy, I abandoned the quest so I could kill him again, had never been a problem in the past. When I restarted it was like I had just reached lvl 14, even had skill points waiting but the new swords were gone. So that is what I originally caused the problem.
New character is a lvl 11 now, in Charring Cross.
The helmet is one of those dog faced one's, the one's with the snout. That's what makes it the worst too, the thing is just butt ugly :)
