Game title screen won't load

Windows 10
My Colony v0.6.7.0
Native Client/Website version

Yesterday I played the game for a a while in the morning, however when I opened the game later in the evening it got stuck at the Loading screen and I couldn't even make it to the title screen. I tried reinstalling it but it did not work. Luckily, I export my save files frequently and had a recent save file logged on my computer.

I tried the ape apps launcher, it also had the same problem as native client and did not work.

I tried to use the website version to see if it all worked. I loaded the website version fine, imported my save file, all looked good except for the fact that when I saved and exited to the title screen it failed to actually save it. I tried it again and still never came up on the list of saves to load, and whenever I clicked the button to load the previously loaded colony it simply says corrupted - even though I can still import the save correctly. I then tested to see if it could save any colony. I created a new colony, saved and exited to title and It worked perfectly fine.

I decided to take a break and come back to it the next day. Nothing I could do made the native client work, nor the Website version. Luckily, despite that it didn't work the previous day, the ape apps launcher works.

How did this problem occur, how can it be fixed. I prefer the native client version over the other versions, I will play with the ape apps launcher version for now but I just thought the developer should be made aware that these problems exists.

So this is just on one map, not all maps?

Now all platforms fail to load again and I'm incapable of getting to the screen where I can choose to make a new game or load one.



Just keeps getting stuck on this screen in all versions

Still doesn't make it to the title screen. Game launches and remains on the loading screen permanently. If I load up the website version of my colony I can get to the title screen in order to load a save file, the game saves within a reasonable time but cannot recall the save after returning to the title screen. Every other platform won't even launch

@bastecklein The native client and ape apps launcher still don't work at all, is there anything being done to fix this? Is there something that I can do? I tried playing on the web version but it suddenly started taking up to 6 hours to do what it had previously done in a couple minutes. There is nowhere left for me to play anymore and I don't know what else I can do about it.

Oh. I am assuming the game data has gotten so large that it can no longer be passed in through a JS function. Does it work in a non-chromium based browser, such as Firefox?

I have not tried firefox, I will do that. The other problem is that the entire native client simply doesn't open the game. At all. I can't even make it to the title screen to create a new game even if I wanted to @bastecklein. Also note that any file I import to the web browser version that didn't start originally from the browser version won't be found after the web browser successfully saves the game and exits to title.

Firefox doesn't even load to title screen, just like the native client.
