:shock:

I just loaded CM, and I got a message saying something like "The file rollofhonour.dat appears to have been copied from an earlier version, so it will have to be deleted", and I've lost all of my commanders!!!!! I wasn't fiddling with anything, I always play the game "properly" and don't cheat. Any idea why this happened? I assume that they're gone for good?

Hm, happened to me once or twice, too. Sorry, but I believe they are gone.

Did you log on to Windows as a different user?

No, my laptop only has "me" and "guest", and I'm always "me" :D

This just happened to me for the second time, too. Again, no fiddling around, and no changing users... :(

If you can upload a new blank rollofhonour.dat and a backup of the one with all your commanders in it, I can make it work.
After copying the blank ROH file, DO NOT OPEN CRITICAL MASS until I have sent you your fixed ROH file.

Thanks for the offer, but it's ok - kind of gave up and just carried on playing, but it's still a bit annoying. Anybody know of a prevention rather than cure fix?

Something changed the critical mass key in the registry or prevented CM from accessing/modifying it.
System restore? Registry cleaner? Antivirus/Antispyware?

Haven't done a system restore/registry cleaner... I do have antivirus and antispyware software, but I use them quite a lot and the issue with the .dat file has only happened 3 times, so I don't see how it might be connected...

Yeah happened to me too after I installed Service Pack 2.

I canceled CM when it said it would need to delete it, and then copied the rollofhonor to some place safe from its treacherous hands.
