    Error when trying to load saves

    Finally had a chance to try this out today - unfortunately, it didn't work Here is the output from the log: Parameter name: key at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Insert(TKey key, TValue value, Boolean add) at Academagia.AI.AIStateBag.LoadFromStream(Stream stream) at Academagia.Storage.RepositorySerializer.Deserialize(Dictionary`2 contentObjects, String headerFileName, String dataFileName) at Academagia.Storage.RepositorySerializer.LoadGameFromFolder(String folderName, String cacheLocation, GameInfo info) at Academagia.Storage.RepositorySerializer.LoadGame(GameInfo gameInfo) at Academagia.UI.Views.LoadGameControl.Worker_DoWork(Object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e) [Academagia] - [2017-07-09T12:52:21.3620926-04:00] - [Error] - System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null. And here's the log covering what happened during the crash (can't find any info logged on what cause it): [Academagia] - [2017-07-09T12:50:00.0574418-04:00] - [Info] - System Error.

Any suggestions on possible reasons for this?

    Error when trying to load saves

    Okay, I'll try that. Should I be deleting the entire Cache folder? Or just Cache_V3?

    Error when trying to load saves

    This is really strange - I uninstalled from the Steam menu, went into my Steam/commonapps folder and deleted the Academagia folder entirely, then reinstalled from Steam. But I'm still getting the error, even with the known uncorrupted saves. Maybe I'm missing something that I should also be deleting with the install?

    Error when trying to load saves

    My game recently crashed when attempting to load a save in-game. Upon restarting, I am unable to load any of my saves due to an error (Value cannot be null. Parameter name: key). I tried reinstalling the game and deleting the Cache_V3 folder, but no luck so far. I also do not think it is due to save-game corruption, since I am unable to load even known bug-free saves that I re-pasted into the savegame folder from a backup. Any tips on how to resolve this error? Thanks for your help!

    Can't find "Follow My Parents' Instructions"

    Thanks! It looks like it's the cheat mod that's giving me a conflict - removed it and it works now.
  6. I've just started a new game with DLC 17 and the exotic familiar and cheat mods installed (both loaded after the DLC). I noticed that, despite selecting the Secret Heritage background, I can't see "Follow Your Parents' Instructions" anywhere under either actions or abilities. I've played until the middle of Gelamenus and tried restarting a couple of times with the load order of the mods switched around, but no dice. Am I missing something needed to activate the House in the Bog adventure? Or is this a mod conflict issue?
