This particular problem is most likely caused by a mod that's got a duplicated identifier for a race trait.

Where did you purchase the game and what version do you have? You can see your version in the bottom right of the main menu.

No mods

v1.02

Crash on any load attempt, even from a game saved just after start.

No problems with 1.01

I see a lot of people are having problems with savegames. I'll just stick with 1.01 if it's an unknown.

Any new version on the way?

This problem is caused by game versions that were updated incorrectly. There is v1.0.3 out, but that only fixed some windows 10 compatibility issues.

If you have this problem:

From Steam: Use "verify integrity of game cache".
From GoG: Redownload the base version of the game and use 'check for updates' from the main menu.
From the bay of booty: Get yourself a torrent from someone that didn't screw up the update process. Or just buy the game.

Wasn't there a Gamergate option or something similar, too? If so, then I'll point out the obvious and say that the procedure for that is the same as for GoG.

GamersGate just sells steam keys, it's only GoG that has a non-steam version, though either version is of course DRM-free.

I'm sure there's at least one, possibly multiple, torrents out there where the uploader screwed up the update and broke saves this exact way. Don't know why they can't seem to get Star Ruler right, the SR1 torrents all had various hilarious problems as well.

Oh, I know - I actually wound up telling an ABEM player that he'd have to get a better torrent or just buy the game outright when it turned out he had a version of the game that was too old to run the mod. He bought the game. :D

On the bright side, at least we're not seeing anyone with Early Access builds... I hope...
