Hi, I've been a fan of FS2 for awhile now but only recently signed up at this forum (i'm working on some ship models that I hope to release soon)
Anyways, I believe my pilot file has become corrupted, in that the game crashes every time I select it on the start up screen. I'm playing the Derelict campaign at the moment, but I'm nearly 100% sure it's not the campaign that's doing it as I've already searched up the problem to no avail (and I've reinstalled the campaign already just to check). Creating a new pilot works fine, but I really, really don't want to start the entire campaign over, and much rather continue using the profile I have been using for the last few years.
So, is there any tool or way to fix my crashing pilot file? Or am I screwed? I already tried opening the pl2 and cs2 files in notepad but it's just some encrypted gibberish that I can't decode. I'm running build 3.6.10 btw, no mods other than Derelict.
