Game in progress but can't access it
mastrchief - January 01, 2010 05:00PM
 
Hi - I have a game in progress but when I log in it says the following:

There is already a game in progress under your name. Destroy old game? [yn]


What can I do to get my game back? Thanks

I have the exact same problem. Sporkhack crashed when I entered the magic portal to Fort Ludios and it's been displaying that message ever since.

If there's anything that can be done to restore that game, it would be much appreciated.

I found this in my ttyrec from Fri Jan 01 2010 09:55:15 GMT-0700 (MST)....

Program initialization has failed.
Report error to "wizard".
monsndx - could not index monster (0)


If there is any possible way that a savefile backup can be found I would be grateful. I was well on my way to my first monk ascension.

Okay, now, when I start a new game, it no longer prompts me about "destroying old game." It just goes to the character selection prompt.

Does that mean my game is lost for good? Should I give up on it and start a new game? That would be disappointing, because I had a pretty good tourist game going. Please let me know.

I restored your game from the backup save

Thanks for your help.

Sorry to trouble you, but the same thing happened again. Entering the magic portal to Fort Ludios in Sporkhack crashed the game and generated the same error message. (Same game as above, but this time the portal was on a different level) I thought perhaps it was a coincidence the first time, but now I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with the scripting or something in Fort Ludios.

In any case, I was hoping you could restore my game again, and I promise that this time, I won't enter that portal! :-)

Sorry to bother you, but I just got hit by exactly the same bug: Sporkhack crashed when I tried to enter the portal to Fort Ludios.

Is there any chance to restore the game a few turns before? As the previous poster, I promise I won't try to enter it again.

Thanks a lot.

It is now asking me about creating a new character. Is there any chance of a backup recovery, or is the game gone for good?

And yet another case of
"There is already a game in progress under your name. Destroy old game? [yn]"

Please restore if possible.

I sure hope my game wore an Amulet of Backup ;-)

It seems I'm out of luck. When I log in now I don't get the error any more and I'm simply being asked to start a new game. :-/

I'm having the same problem with SporkHack. It crashed when I teleported to Fort Ludios.

Could you possibly recover my game as well, please? My account name is Amarth.

Thank you very much.

Unfortunately there's nothing left of your game.

I've just had this problem occur while using the portal to return from the Archeologist Quest level (Too puny for access).

There is already a game in progress under your name. Destroy old game? [yn]

Account name is MrSnide

I'm hoping it can be restored as I've not yet managed to ascend an archeologist and this one looks promising, but I notice Tormouse had the same thing happen twice.
Not being able to enter Fort Ludios is one thing, but is this likely to prevent me from completing the quest at all?

(Edit : I'm playing Nethack 3.4.3, not SporkHack)

Sorry for being away, but I've restored your game from a backup. Hopefully it was this one!

This is annoying. I was in the Valley on my way to meet with Rodney.

Sorry to ask, but the same problem is happening to me. It exited out on me when the game crashed. (I was not attempting anything else, or entering a portal.)I'm playing the NetHack 3.4.3. Would paxed mind restoring it? I was well on my way to my first ascension.

I don't want to be a bother, but If you wouldn't mind, could you restore my game as well? I'm having the same problem with the prompt "There is already a game in progress under your name. Destroy old game?". It would be amazing if you could help me :) Thanks so much for your time.

Yet another case of "There is already a game in progress under your name. Destroy old game? [yn] "

Please restore, if possible. (Never mind, I've started a new game rather than wait).
