OOTP cannot load database - earlier version

I've never owned a previous iteration of OOTP, I bought 19 on launch day and my league that i have been playing with since then wont load this morning saying that save file was created with a previous version.

Any ideas? Is my file toast?


OOTP cannot load this database becuase it has been created with an earlier version of OOTP. Please use the button "Import OOTP 19" to import the database.

Sorry that's happening. It does sound like the league file is corrupt.

Can you try restoring the league from the autosave and see if that fixes things (you might lose some progress with the autosave)

1) Open the game and on the start screen, click on Settings (or Preferences in OOTP 11-14).

2) Now click on the tab "Troubleshooting".

3) Click "Open folder containing saved games".

4) Now open up the league folder you're wanting to restore.

5) Then select all of the .dat files in the folder and back them up (just in case) by copying them to a temporary folder or creating a zipped file with them

6) Open the folder called "auto-save".

7) In there, select all of the ".dat" files and copy them to the league folder (the parent of the current folder) overwriting all of the ".dat" files in the league folder.
