    I have fixed a bug that could cause problem. Also I added more logging to help identify problems.

    That did the trick.

    Btw, since you do small unnoticed changes i want to suggest two for you, 1 - make the settings window be on center of the screen and 2 - Plz, use ultra compression ratio for those poor guys with dial-up like me. ;) Thank you for the fix.

    Weird, I got a display issue with the latest version when clicking a save slot after starting F12se:


    Didn't have the issue with the previous version (20170822).

    That was an unsuccessful attempt to hide the sfall tab when there is no sfallgv.sav file. Removed that changes.

    1 I do not see easy way to do this. And my silent edits seems to break something very often, so I will not touch working things anymore.
    2 For ultra compression now there is 7zip archive

    Usually the reason is that the game is installed in the "Program Files...", and Windows prevents the files from being changed there.

    This is really common question, so I updated editor and now errors when saving are not only recorded in the log, but also displayed in the messagebox.

    I got a bug with the latest version. In previous versions I can edit player's base stats like SPECIAL or DR values and save it without any problems, but now I'll get an error when trying to save:
    Code:
    ---------------------------
    Can't save file!
    ---------------------------
    Can't write in file: "C:\Games\Fallout2\data\SAVEGAME\SLOT01\SAVE.DAT" errno:No error
    ---------------------------
    OK 
    ---------------------------
    And it will corrupt the SAVE.DAT, leaving only a partial file in the save folder.

    Once again, I was too lazy to check my changes. The bug is fixed.

    I'm experiencing the same problem as NovaRain.

    I downloaded the latest Universal F12se editor (on 12/15/2017) here: https://sites.google.com/site/chulancheg/F12se.zip?attredirects=0

    But it still gives me this error. A box comes up saying "Can't write in file" and something about it being "too large".

    I know no changes are saved, and also they disappear in the program after each I get the message, so I have to delete the SAVEGAMES folder and recopy it from my backup every time, to troubleshoot.

    I also copied the whole Fallout 2 directory to my desktop to see if that would work and it still gives this error, still can't write. Also tried running as Administrator and no luck.

    You need to download the 7z version (the date of exe is Dec 15th), the zip version & source code are not updated yet.

    I'm sorry. I'm busy these days, so I just forgot to update the zip archive and sources. Since yesterday the saving takes place in the following steps:
    1. Rename SAVE.DAT to SAVE.DAT.backup
    2. Write new SAVE.DAT file
    3.1. If an error occurs: rename SAVE.DAT.backup back to SAVE.DAT
    3.2. Otherwise delete SAVE.DAT.backup.

    Today I fixed issue in 3.1. I hope there will be no more problems.

    Thanks for the replies. It works perfectly now.

    Funny thing though I am using it to delete one of the maps because of my game crashing when entering, and this supposedly fixes the crash.

    But upon doing that now it messes with Vic (he can no longer leave my party). A few other issues come up that I've corrected, like my town karma resetting. But then... the quests form that map all reset too as well as change variables.

    Haha, its a good tool but I would have to perform surgery with the editor to eliminate one bug while preventing others from occurring.

    I enabled all gvar variables regarding addictions but they are wrong, if you see the attached pic i selected "Vicio em Psycho" that means "Addction to Psycho" but it displays the message in the box on the right side "Vicio em Mentats" that means "Addiction to Mentats"

    That looks like problem with msg files in your game. I checked in restoration project, titles and descriptions are correct there.

    Hello, its a good engine..but its been breaking my game twice already.
    is there something i shouldnt mess with at all? i havent been able to find like a tutorial or guide on how to use it
    ie, i change my melee weapon skills a bit too high and when i came back to load the game it gave me the error load message..and i cannot seem to fix that through the editor, so i have to start over..so now i have a backup just in case..
    Also, how do you teleport to another location properly using the worldmap tab?

    thanks..
