Hello

I use Linux and I cannot get the game to recognize re-zipped savegames, it is not listed in the 'Load Game' list.

What I tried doing is simply to take a savegame, unzip it and zip it back, no actual modification of the savegame.

I have also looked at the unzipped file and it looks ok.

I have tried zipping with Gnome Archive utility, 7zip and the 'zip' command.

Anyone on Linux that can unzip & re-zip sucessfully?

Did you try various compression levels? If I recall correctly, you need no compression on the zip. I know that 7-zip works under Windows in any case.

I found a simple way to sidestep the re-zipping problem. The game accepts uncompressed save-files, so I just took a uncompressed savegame file and added the appropriate file extension.

"You have to re-zip the edited file. You can do it in 7zip, but you must change archive type to gzip. "
