Lost all my saves... Help.

Postby QuestiononTennis » Sun Jul 17, 2016 7:43 pm

Hello,

In the previous weeks I've really enjoyed playing Full Ace Tennis.

Today I double-clicked on the icon and my laptop suddenly said 'FullAce.exe is not responding'.
Then I tried to open it by right clicking and opening it 'as Administrator'.
The game started, all seemed fine.

Until I noticed all my save games were gone. I had also changed about 100 names of players, but all of that had been set back to default.
It seems like the game has reset itself???

I checked in my directory > Data > Save but it was empty...

Is there any way I can get my saves back, as well as the name changes? It cost me a lot of time...

Thanks for your help.

Depending on your version of Windows, your saved games may be saved in your "Local Settings" directory, which may change when you launch the game as Administrator. As a last resort you can try making a full search on your Windows drive for *.fas files.

Hey,

Good news: I managed to find my save data in the local folder, just like you said.
I made a copy of it on my hard drive.

Another major problem though: I can't seem to start Full Ace Tennis.exe. Nothing happens when I double-click or launch as Administrator.
It seems to crash before it launches...

Any tips?

Thanks

I'm glad you were able to recover your save files.
I would advise you to make a copy of your installation, then remove your options.fas file in the Data directory.
If this doesn't correct the problem, you should clean the installation and re-install. Then put your saved data back one step at a time to see if any of it causes the problem.
If you do identify the file(s) that cause the problem, let me know. They could help me find the origin of the problem, and eventually correct it.

Hey,

Removing the options file helped!
I'm playing again without problems.

What could have been the cause in your opinion?

Thanks for your help!

Glad your problem is solved !

It's hard to tell what caused this without more information. Could you please send the faulty options.fas to postmaster@fullacetennis.com ?
