    All game save files broken but saved objects load fine

    Hello all,

    I've run into this issue occasionally but always managed to circumvent it by using my save folder on my other computer as a backup. However, this time I failed to do that and the broken files synced through the cloud to both computers. I'm running Windows 10 and OS X High Sierra 10.13.6; it happens on both computers.

    This issue is encapsulated more or less entirely in this screenshot:

    I get these two error messages in chat immediately upon loading a game session:
    • Error loading Save games: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
    • Error loading Save games: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: source

    All of the saves appear as broken, and when I go to the full list the save games screen appears completely blank, prompting the above errors to appear again.

    Of note is that all of my saved objects and subscribed Workshop mods work just fine; the only issue is with game saves. As shown in this screenshot, everything appears in their Windows Explorer folder as they should:

    I have tried:
    • Restarting Steam
    • Restarting PC
    • Verifying game files
    • Renaming the save folder to a backup this "fixes" the errors but obviously also clears out all saves and saved objects which is undesirable as these saves account for hundreds of hours of work and include ongoing RPG campaigns as well as personal projects

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Fixed the issue. I deleted SaveFileInfos.json from the saves folder and everything works now.
