We appear to have found a solution (according to a couple people who have tried it so far) and we'd like you to try it out. 1: Right click the game in your Steam library, properties, then click Verify Game Integrity. 2: Delete the entire Documents/Gaslamp Games/ folder. If you have mods you would like to keep, move the folders elsewhere for now, we just need the folder to disappear completely. 3: Save a new character and see if it works. 4: If it doesn't, try applying this hotfix: http://patches.gaslampgames.com/dredmor/dredmor_hotfix_test3.zip If it works, you should be fine with moving the mods back in also. Please let us know the results (in this thread if possible).
