Topic Subject:savefile corrupted, any options ?

real bad news for me, my epic campaign with Holland (161th turn, summer 1780 in max difficulty with very good results) is probably lost coz of 2 different bugs in same time...

i have a big machine (MSI GT70) so i play in max graphic options without real problems since longer & with max size regiments.

here or there, i have some gamecrash, sometimes...
but without real impact coz i am very carefull with ETW, i already knew there was risks to loose datas before this problem...
then i save regulary progression and i have 2 savefiles for each campaign just to be sure.

unfortunatly, it were not enough here:

1st problem:
got a crash in campaign pushing me to reload ETW.
i already had 2 or 3 times that same bug before, since 2 turns, soon as i moved a cav unit in Savoy region (owned by UK, my ally) close of Genoa & Lombardia borders (owned by ennemies).

it crash instantly and go back to windows.
alone, this 1st bug isnt really drama, just need to relaunch ETW...

but in this case... :/

2nd problem:
the game is far advanced and big empires of the game have many armies & fleets.
since 5or10 turns, i see the game suffering graphicaly sometimes to rule all about... :/

and i didnt realized there was a problem when i updated the 2 savefiles of this campaign in this starting 161th turn... (save happen normaly and i get back to play directly after)

i only realized it when i tried to load them again: the % line (of downloading savefile) goes till 30% +/- and the game crash, back to windows.

and its same with my both savefiles of this campaign !
(i recorded them at 3 second difference in real time)

i understood the savefile is corrupted coz when i try to load it, i hear sounds there was INSIDE the campaign like voices, environment noices, music, etc...
its very quite but i can hear&ID them clearly...

and its absolutly not normal !

(i can hear those sounds till reach the 30% line step of loading, then all crash and back to windows)

i am defenatly sure, the game didnt finished to analysis all datas/values of new events in the campaign when i did the savefiles and it failed my both records...
(but without show it !)

its bad news here coz i didnt realized the record failed at that time, of course...
all seems completed properly, its only when i try to load the savefile again (after get out and try to restart), i can feel something wrong coz of those sounds like i said, etc...
if i should did an other save on those files later (in a peacefull moment where the game could finish them normaly), the 1st problem of graphic bug in Savoy region & game crash following should not have impact with my both savefiles, u see ? (hope u understand what i mean, lol)

its combined both problems together who blocking me here coz i cant enter in that campaign again now !

ETW works normaly but if i do not find a solution for this savefile corrupted,
ALL those 700hours of playtime for 161 turns will be completely lost... :'(

so, how could i repare that savefile ?
do u think its always possible to go back in that campaign and play it ?

i took a copy of error report from windows
(when the game crash at 30% of savefile loading),
here it is:

(its in french sorry but codes&ID are same whatever language is it)

so, here i am... :/
do u think still something to do to repare this savefile and enter in the campaign properly again ?

hope there is...
thx a lot for support,
c u
