Exclamation Character-ending Bug

Yesterday, I lost my level 20 Warrior with epic loot due to a major malfunction in the game and my own stupidity for not having my files backed up, but oh well. Lesson learned. I'm running patch 1.002, the one that came with the game. I was in Malburg and I had just freed myself from Din. I saved and exited the game and while I was on the title screen, somebody on messenger messaged me and my instinctive response was to hit alt+tab. My computer crashed hard. I got a blue screen telling me my computer automatically shut down to protect itself from data loss.

Today, I went into the game and tried to resume my game, but it came up with an error and forced me to close the program. I loaded the game up again and this time chose "play" to bring up my list of characters. I scrolled down to the bottom to where my guy is and now it lists him as a level 0 Priest. Is there any way I can change his level so the game doesn't glitch out and I don't lose all my precious loot?

I just realized it also deleted the entire shared stash which was full of goodies. Gah!!

That's really strange. From the game's standpoint the character was already saved by the time you got back to the title screen, although the OS can buffer it. Also blue screens are usually caused by bad drivers, so you might want to update your graphics and possibly sound drivers if you can.

As for your character, I'm not sure there is much you can do. You can post your character files or email them to me and I can look at them, but I can't promise anything.

Unfortunately, there's no information left in the character file (or the map and world files for that matter). I opened it up and the entire file is spaces. Sorry.

I'm not even sure how that is possible. I can understand a bluescreen eats everything that has been buffered to write to the disk, but all spaces. That's kind of weird.

Just happened to me recently, exactly the same thing.
