Dwarf Fortress – Tunoslan Episode 6

Okay that’s Episode 6 of my Let’s Play Dwarf Fortress up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Please remember to like and subscribe if possible, it all helps.

Sunday Recording

Managed to get an episode of my Dwarf Fortress series recorded this afternoon. Just rendering it the moment and then I’ll get it uploaded to YouTube.

Dwarf Fortressing…

Right, well, I spent yesterday evening, working backwards through the backups of the save game from Episode 3, which I’d updated as each version came out.  Found that the 0.40.16 one did’t crash after the caravan departs the map, so copied that up to the next version and played to the stage where it was crashing, if it worked then I copied it to the next and so on.  But always going back to the 0.40.16 save game and redoing the actions I’d done.

Eventually I got the save working with 0.40.23, the latest Starter Pack version so I’m happy now to start recording again :_)

….More Crash and Bang…

After a further 2 crashes I’ve finished recording the second episode that I planned to record this morning.  I think I’ll go back to using version 0.40.19 and get the fort back up to where this second episode finishes at and hopefully it’ll be crash free.  If that works, then I’ll stick with that version for recording this series and not update Dwarf Fortress until this fortress falls into decline.

Crash, Bang…

Okay well I decided to try and record three episodes of the Dwarf Fortress series this morning.  Got half way through my second episode when Dwarf Fortress decided to crash on me.  Loaded it back up, found I’d lost about 20 minutes of play time and so tried to get back to where I stopped recording, off camera, but it crashed again just about at the same spot.

I think I may go back to the 0.40.19 version of Dwarf Fortress and replay up to where I was at again and see how that goes.  I’m currently rendering the first episode I managed to get in full so that I can get that posted up to Youtube today.
