Invalid database version (on Loading Screen)

I can't load any games at this point -- I get a "invalid database version".

I exited, then re-started the game (Steam), and now my Saved games are gone.

Is there any way to look into this? I won't be back home until monday, so if I need to send some files, I'll do so only in 3-4 days.

Euuhhh... No answer at all after four days?
Geez, the game is, for all intents and purposes, unplayable right now!

I'm only a researcher, but have you tried creating a new game and loading it? Just trying to find out if your game automatically corrupts savefiles or not. Either way, try verifying game files in Steam.

(Right click FHM in your Steam library / Properties / Local Files / Verify)

I┤m sorry for such a late response!

If I understand you correctly, your saves are gone now? That┤s pretty strange, there is nothing in the code that would delete saves. Can you please verify if saves are still there or not by looking into the saved folder?
If they are still there, please enable trace mode and try to load one and then send us the trace file (which is in your "data/debug" folder).

Let me know if you need more assistance!
