Game Error

Postby adamj95 » Sat Feb 16, 2019 12:37 am

My game crashed while saving at the end of the month of August during recruiting. When i try to load up that association, it says "Unable to read beyond the end of the stream". Any idea if this can be fixed?

On the game opening screen try using "Restore Backup" (On right hand side) it will take you back to your previous save.

what ncaahoops said is usually the best fix..i've had some bizarre things happen to me in the last 14 years too. inclucing an entire association that got wiped out in CB!. The next best solution with cb19 is to uninstall and reinstall the game...your saved stuff will still be available since it's in a separate folder now, away from the game folder. If you have any doubts, go copy all of your saved game files elsewhere before reinstalling.

Using the restore option is the best bet here like was mentioned but I'm interested in the crash itself. Did you happen to do anything while the game was saving (maybe try to minimize the program or switch to another app or something)?

and, did you install any mods? (sorry, Gary! I thought that was an appropriate question too.)

Using the restore option fixed my game. I have the real world mod installed. I was trying to switch between apps on my computer so that may be why the game crashed.

Good point! Yes, I do other things on my computer when a DDS game SAVE is in progress. Some other computer programs or apps can mess up a save.

That's a relief!

Everyone who has posted has given excellent advice about what to do and what to consider when game errors occur. I'd like to add that if all else fails, one can contact support: https://www.wolverinestudios.com/support.

I seem to be having the same issue now trying to run one of my associations but there are no files to restore when I try to restore the backup. This has happened to me twice now. I am 3 years into this association and I went to click to go into July recruiting and the game crashed on me. I tried to load it up and it says "An unhandled exception occurred: Unable to read beyond the end of the stream." I went to go restore my backup and there are no files in that association. This is the 2nd time this has happened to me.

Something is happening while you are saving the game where the game has to be either crashing or being closed out. That's the only explanation for how a save could be incomplete and there be no backup file for it. When you save the game are you waiting for the popup box that says it was saved successfully before exiting? Do you have any other programs running? Do you have One Drive automatically backing up your My Documents folder? If you do please exempt the Wolverine Studios folder from that because we know that can cause an issue while simulating if the One Drive backup decides to start up.
