Also unable to start adventures!

Hi,
 
 
   I'm getting the crash on adventure bug. I've seen references to it from others in the forum, but none of the solutions mentioned appear to work. This is the current Steam version. 
 
To recreate:  
Load the save
Set one of the three timeslots to Adventure
Click the yellow confirm schedule button
 
 and it will crash. The message from the log is a null reference exception in GetPossibleStoriesForCurrentDate (what an awesome function name!)  

I went back to earlier saves and found that it crashes on adventure for those as well (this is the first time I've tried an Adventure), but when I start a new save it does allow me to adventure. 

This save should only be using the latest DLC - I didn't select both at the start, only the second.

I have tried
1) Deleting the V3 cache folder... though it looks like it does it for you
2) deleting the GCC folder in the mods directory
3) Creating a new save, validating I can use Adventure, saving, and loading the old save
None of which appeared to work.

Thanks!
Jon.

I'm 98% certain this save should only be using the latest DLC - I didn't select both at the start, only the second.  I did some research before I started as I wasn't sure what it was asking for, then actually compared the file sizes of each mod and validated the second was bigger than the first.  Always possible I could have fatfingered it somehow, but I'm fairly sure I did not.

No mods, except for besides Summer's Blush.

I have tried
1) Deleting the V3 cache folder... though it looks like it does it for you
2) deleting the GCC folder in the mods directory
3) Creating a new save, validating I can use Adventure, saving, and loading the old save
None of which appeared to work.

have you tried to load older save of this game, perhaps you still have one before this adventure bug started. 

(In my last game I made 4 save before I discovered that my game did get corrupted, lucky I had some even older save)

Has there been any movement on this issue? I have the same problem - my current save game crashes whenever I try to adventure, and clearing cache did not help. I only have the one save, so if this save is dead then my entire playthrough is gone (and frankly, my enthusiasm for the game along with it).

Would really appreciate some assistance here.

Avasraali;

Unfortunately, no- this particular corruption bug has long plagued us, and is somehow related to trash collection. The closest we've ever come to solving it is that it is sometimes, but not always, related to how the game changes the 'cost' of a Skill Step.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it is very probable that you would need to scrap that save. :(

Well, thank you for the prompt reply at least. For what it's worth, this seemed to occur to me because I tried to mouse over a skill (Revision, I believe) at the moment of loading my save. My prior research into trying to fix the issue suggested similar causes for others (interacting with UI).

That said, sounds like it's a dead issue. Given how miserable it is to lose a 40-hour save and the fact that it seems unlikely Year 2 will see release this decade, if ever, it would appear my relationship with Academagia is at an end.

That's what I get for messing with Gates, I suppose.

If you have the disk space I suggest to make 7 or more save files that you use in following order. In my last game I also encountered a save corruption without realising it for 3 or 4 ingame days, because I keep 7 days of save I still had some older save that where fine.
