When this game launched I reported many bugs. Among them was the black screen at the kick starter logo lock up. The black screen launch lock up STILL persists in v2. The game will only launch to menu 1 out of 5 to 6 launches. From there my saves are constantly corrupted and loading them results in looping back to the menu (if you can get to the menu in the first place) When I originally reported this a dev eventually "fixed" my saves then sent them back to me WITHOUT fixing the game problem that caused it. Which is to say my "fixed" saves were corrupted as soon as they were used. Starting a brand new game with v2 my new game I started a day ago is now also corrupted causing the same loop back to menu.
Guest posted a question in Pillars of Eternity: Technical Support (Spoiler Warning!)I have found a working savegame fix the will load savegames and create new working non corrupt savegames This has been tested and working on 3 different machines with 5 different save files myself and have had 2 other friends fix their savegames with this method. First delete the folder C:\Users\username\AppData\LocalLow\Obsidian Entertainment Then delete the folder C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\Obsidian Entertainment If you have any saves in C:\Users\username\Documents\My Games\Pillars of Eternity Copy them to C:\Users\username\Saved Games\Pillars of Eternity Run the game as admin and load the most recent save Move your char and save a new save. Without exiting the game reload that new save. Save again in the same save. Exit the game. That should work and create new files in LocalLow and Local\Temp Though its probably unnecessary before i exit i save then i load my save and resave the same save everytime before i exit the game now. I have my 60+ hour save now to 85 hours without an issue on multiple machines. Please dont ask questions or expect me to explain this again if it works great if it doesnt or you cant figure it out good luck.
