I kind of had an odd problem, and was hoping some one here is smarter than me to help fix it.
Setup: I was in the midst of saving a game when my PC crashed. Total black screen, had to restart the whole system. I reloaded the PC, and went to Gatekeeper, the baldur gate save game editor. I had saved the game in the first place so i could go into gatekeeper and give myself an angel skin ring as i had forgot to keep one for the guy in baldur's gate. Thing was? Gatekeeper loaded the save, and it found nothing on the file. No characters, no items, nothing. I thought I did something wrong, so i loaded a different save file, and it worked fine. I went back to the first file, and still nothing found. Thinking it weird, I went to load baldur's gate itself, see if something was amiss. It was. I load Baldur's gate. I click load game, and baldur's gate instantly crashes with the error message:
"An assertion failed in
\dev\baldur\infscreenload.cpp at line number 1358."
At this point, I'm pretty sure I have a corrupted save file or something, as the game itself plays (if I go to new game and don't try to save or load, it works fine). So since I had a back up save not that long ago, I figure I'll go into my save files, delete the potentially corrupted file, and see if that works.
Only thing is... I can't find my save files.
Now I know where they're SUPPOSED to be. I have a file labeled Gog.com, under is the baldur's gate files, and there is a folder for saved games. Only...it's empty. I go back to gatekeeper, and it has an option that shows where it's getting its game from (or at least, what i assumed) and it says it's path is getting my game from this save file folder....that's empty. Now I can't access my save files from the baldur's gate program itself, but gatekeeper is still able to get the information of all my files except the one I think is corrupted. So the save files exist, they load fine normally, and gatekeeper still sees them...only I can't find them on my computer no matter how hard i search.
At this point, I have no idea what to do. I don't know for sure if it is a corrupted file or not, where my save files are, or how to play the game at this point at all. If anyone can make heads or tails of this issue, I would LOVE to hear from you, as I am stumped.
Thank you for your time,
