Post Lost my game
I have a saved game in season 40, and I loaded SO, and the screen size was different to normal, I tried to load the saved game and SO closed and said there's an error, I've made the screen size back to normal but the game still wont load and still has the same error.
What can I do?

It sounds like you have had a windows blue screen crash where windows deletes the last thing you were using
as it thinks it was the cause of the crash this happened on my last laptop a few times if you did not back up copy your saved game it might
be lost check your saves folder and see if the game is still in there bearing in mind each saved game should have 4 or 5 files

1.sav 1.bak(if selected back up game in game menu) ext1.sav in1.idx 01.idx

if 1 of them are missing then i am sorry your game is lost as windows has deleted it

is the slot when you load the game empty though

my recommendation

copy 1.bak
paste it to the desktop rename it 1.sav and paste it back in the saves folder try that might work

no makes no difference all you did was paste over a slightly earlier version of your saved game

what actually happens when you try and load the game

Strange mate i would copy the saves folder and re install the game

BUT to be honest it looks like your files have become corrupt

have you added any addons lately
