Game won't load past 43%

I tried loading a particular game a few different times, and each time it won't load past 43%. I tried uninstalling OOTP and reinstalling it but it did not make a difference. Is the game file corrupted beyond repair?

It may be one of those odd 'wait it out' moments, too, and won't happen after its completion. May be a given, but have you just walked away and let it run its course? I've had this occur (rarely) and it's taken nearly 10 minutes, but eventually it jumps the hurdle.

I might try this one night, or when I'm out doing other things, but I tried letting it run before. Probably waiting close to 10 minutes with no results.

May very well be a problem then. If it doesn't work, submit a ticket and upload the league files. Hope it works out for you.

It does seem like the file might have become corrupted. Whether beyond repair or not remains to be seen.

The first thing to try would be to see if you can load from the auto-save.

To restore from the automatic backup, do the following:

1) Open the game and on the start screen, click on Settings (or Preferences in OOTP 11-14).

2) Now click on the tab "Troubleshooting".

3) Click "Open folder containing saved games".

4) Now open up the league folder you're wanting to restore.

5) Then select all of the .dat files in the folder and back them up (just in case) by copying them to a temporary folder or creating a zipped file with them

6) Open the folder called "auto-save".

7) In there, select all of the ".dat" files and copy them to the league folder (the parent of the current folder) overwriting all of the ".dat" files in the league folder.

Now start the game and load your league. If it's successful, it will display a message letting you know it's cleaning up text files. This might take several minutes to complete (or even longer if the auto-save backup is older, like from the beginning of the year).

Let me know if that helps or not.

Yesterday I took Endgame's advice and let it run while I was out of the house. When I came back the game fully loaded. Now I know something is corrupted, my game is now filled with a bunch of "Jim unknown's". From now on, I think I'm going to put OOTP on its own hard drive so nothing else can cause a disruption of game files.
