Wiped profile was created by Catty
As mentioned in the EPW fix tool thread , while attempting Hyperion 5 (mission 41) my profile was wiped and reset. Making a separate post as suggested in the other thread, plus I don't want to hijack that other thread too much!

Events leading up:
  • 2 failed attempts at the mission (grr, that TCS Perseus)
  • During the 3rd attempt I paused and alt-tabbed out to check the forums
  • On the 3rd attempt I landed after failing (lost that Perseus again) and, aside from being chewed out, noticed that all my stats were zero. I figured at the time that was just the game signaling that it was a mission failure and I had to replay it.
  • Made a 4th attempt but quit in disgust after losing the Perseus yet again. Blue-screened upon exit, and when I restarted, the profile was blank. I have had blue-screens on exiting before, but it's never wiped the whole profile.

I've since recovered thanks to Tolwyn's reference profiles, but throwing this info out there in case it should help in the future. The lost profile is attached (same as the one posted in the EPW thread).

Hi Catty

Thanks for creating a new thread.

Blue-screened upon exit, and when I restarted, the profile was blank. I have had blue-screens on exiting before, but it's never wiped the whole profile.


Ok, this info we missed. ;) Then i assume the following: this would be very adequate to my profile analysis, because it seems after the profile was lost the cs2 file was completely new written by WCS. Thats the cause why the cs2 have only 4k but dependent to your current status the file must have normaly 195k +-.

I am not a WCS coder but i assume that we have here no bug, it was only a "shit happens" situation. The only way to prevent a situation like this would be to make a backup from the profile from time to time.

But another point, is this crash very often? As example, i played more than 100 hours since release and i had only 2 CTDs in this long time. I am still playing WCS. ^^ Suggestion: Start WCS with DBST and try to reproduce this issue. If the CTD would happen, we have a log about the crash. Before that please update WCS as i said.
