If by "load/save issue" you mean "corrects the problem in which the game crashes after a set amount of turns," then yes. The game I am playing loads and saves just fine. It just crashes when I hit the Enter key to progress to the next turn. While this thread did not address this issue directly, the more ambiguous "load/save issue" led me to believe it was a blanket term covering all such problems; I've seen it used in the past when describing this sort of thing. It is actually the very reason that helped convince me to download the RtW Ultimate Edition for BtS 3.19 in the first place. You can then imagine my disappointment when, instead of correcting the error, the game simply refused to load, calling the file "corrupted." Not an improvement by any means. (I can start a new game with no problems whatsoever though, so that isn't the issue.) The version of the game that I have prior to this installation was the version of RtW that comes with the 3.19 Firaxis patch; the version this thread says UE for 3.19 updates (and since it didn't say they were incompatible in the same breath, I figured save files were A-okay to be transferable). If that in itself--the build--is not enough to render it incompatible with UE for 3.19, I don't know what else could be causing it. I tried loading this save file on three different computers I own that all run Civilization IV BtS with the 3.19 patch, and all of them crash on the turn I mentioned, which is why I sought this solution; downloading the Ultimate Edition. However, all of them fail to load the save file with the UE for 3.19 installed, as well. The only possibility I can see is downloading the original Ultimate Edition first (Dale's version, back in 2008) -- except that build was released before the 3.19 Firaxis patch was, and it was my understanding that the version offered in this thread made it obsolete, including everything that version did and more (and, as stated, this thread says that UE for 3.19 updates the version in the Firaxis patch). I'm only considering it because I'm out of options.
