View Full Version : Can't delete characters

It's been a couple of months since I've played Torchlight and I decided to start up again, however I had to do a system restore recently and so I lost all of my mods, and apparently I can't remember them all because whenever I try to load one character my game crashes. My other character works fine, this one must have had some mod that I just.. can't remember what on earth it was.

I wanted to go through my characters stuff, delete them and start over because I don't remember where I am on any of them and I just want a fresh start, but I can't figure out how to delete the toon without loading it. Does anyone have any clues?
I've tried deleting the appData files in online and offline mode, I guess they're saved on some online server since even through a system restore they were still there.

So that's about it, is there anyway I can find a way to clear a toon of all mods affecting it, or delete them outside of loading them in the game?

Thanks in advance for reading.

For your mods, why don't you use Torchleech (http://torchleech.runicgamesfansite.com:7000/)? Best way to keep track of which mod you have and which ones are causing conflict.

If you want to delete a character, go into C:\Documents and Settings\Alexandre\Application Data\runic games\torchlight\save.

Your characters are the files like 0.SVT, 1.SVT, etc. When deleted, a popup will appear as soon as you boot Torchlight saying something like "The Data on the Steam Cloud doesn't match the Local Files. Overwrite Cloud files with Local Files." Remember, only the Save Files and Config Files are sent to the Cloud, not your Mods.

Oh I love Torchleech, but I did a system restore so any mods I had installed are gone and I just can't remember what ones i have. I mean the file could just be corrupted I just assumed it's a mod issue since it's just one character.

And I've tried deleting those folders/files several times and my characters don't become deleted. I've even tried deleting them not logged into steam.

If your saved character on the cloud is trying to use a mod (for example, if you use a character class mod), then it doesn't matter how many times you delete your local file, the game will still crash if that mod's files are not accessible. The only safe way to remove a mod that adds content is to remove the item/pet/class or leave the mod-made area, let the game save it, turn the game off and delete the mod.

Oh my game doesn't crash, just when I try to access one character it does.

I just want to delete the character because I can't play it anyway and it's just annoying me sitting there.

And I've tried deleting my save files with my mods uninstalled... the files just come back.

I've done two system restores without backing up my data and my characters still exist, thats why I assumed they were saved on some server somewhere.

And like I've said I don't remember all of the mods I had before I did a system restore, so I don't know if it's that I'm missing a mod or if the character file is just corrupt.

Make it crash, then post a copy of your ogre.log file for me here. It still sounds like either a mod or corruption issue, but with the log file I may be able to get a clue as to what is breaking. Just go ahead and post the text in a quote box for me.

If I understood it, you want to delete the characters but they keep coming back from Steam cloud. Are you trying to delete the files, or delete the character inside the game? The former is the way to go, Steam cloud shouldn't bother you if you update the Cloud (exit the game) with the characters erased. If it still doesn't work, just do what Vagrant said.

If you want to delete saved games, try deleting the local steam cloud cache files in

Steam\userdata\id\44048019\remote

then remove them from the runic save game directory.

I didn't know which part(s) would be important so here's the whole thing.


kaoD: I can't delete the character in the game because the game crashes when I access it, so I'm trying to delete the character from out of the game. Deleting all of the files I've been told to delete thus far have been unsuccessful.

Yachi: I don't have a folder with the numbers "44048015" is there anyway to tell which folder is for what game?

The "44048019" folder is a user specific folder. If you use more than 2 accounts, look in both of them and find out which one has the 41500 directory.

Unfortunately, I don't see anything there that says it is trying to load something from a mod. It looks very normal.

This is going to be radical, but try this for me:

Turn off the steam cloud.
Back-up your character saves in a separate folder.
One by one, delete each save and then load the game to figure out which save is which character.
Once you find the one that crashes your game, copy all of the saves back to the saves folder, except for one. That one you don't copy back should be a character save that doesn't crash.
Delete the save that crashes the game, rename the last remaining save file to be the same as the one that crashes your game, and copy it into the folder in place of the save that would crash your game.

If that works (and I'm just grasping at straws here) the game should load a working character file in place of the broken one, one of your other characters. You will need to play it for a couple minutes and let it save, and then turn the game off and reactivate Steam Cloud. The newer save file SHOULD overwrite the broken one. It might also restore a duplicate of the save you put in place of the broken one.

If none of that works, let me know again.

Webbstre: I tried doing what you said and for some reason my game just started crashing all together.. I guess I did something wrong D:

So I just did what Yachi said and it worked, thanks for all of the help guys!

Webbstre

Glad you got it worked out! I have to remember what Yachi said for future reference.

JJacob

I have the same exact issue as above, and the reason is because of mods no longer there and the steam cloud like they said above. Im glad you guys figured it out I may need to do it myself now. Though I can probably just ignore the characters that make the game crash. I guess the lesson to be learned is, if they want to offer mod support for a game.. add a torchleech into the game itself. Otherwise this will happen to people trying to replay the game after a long time and a reinstall\format.

The modded chars removal, the mod usually has to be selected, delete char, then uncheck the mod...
You can also delete the entire mod by deleting it in the Steam folder (sorry don't remember the path, but there is a mod folder you can delete the contents of so the entire mod is removed, not just disabled) Just delete the mod you no longer want.
