    I got a pretty old save file from the end of 2010. Its name is notdv002.SC2Bank

    Can I somehow make it work with notd now? I just reinstalled sc2 and I'd rather not level up from 0 again.

    Mirage ಠ_ಠ What are you looking at?

    You'd probably have to ask ability about that, cause last I looked at the maps bank code it can only handle v3 and v5 unless I missed something.

    It doesn't hurt to give it a try.

    For time being, back up your bank file first then try creating a notd game. Once the game is loaded, select a story and class. Check if your xp and stats are loaded properly. If it's loaded properly then hit -s and quit the game.

    After that go back to your bank folder and remove your v2 save so only v5 remains. It should function normally from there.

    If your v2 bank doesn't load properly then you will probably have to start from scratch...

    It doesnt work if I just replace the notdbank5.SC2Bank with notdv002.SC2Bank. I also tried copying a field inside the file from latter to the former. Didn't work either. The files look different inside, and I guess it wont be possible. Maybe a dev has a way to do it but it is probably too much work for them too.

    Hi leit, could you try renaming the notdv002.SC2Bank to NOTDBackup.SC2Bank? It could work.

    You're gonna probably have to restart from the beginning.

    Wait, weren't the NOTD2 banks killed in the 2nd exp wipe?

    Last time mine was updated was October 2010, which is right around that time.

    I had v001 and v002 in my banks...
    People didn't believe me when i told them this.
    I recently deleted them out along with v003 when the new bank system was implemented with the v005 banks :angel:

    Save files were intentionally wiped? That sounds malicious :(
    The main reason I like this game so much is the stuff that carries on between games.

    Thats because some insane exploit comes up. Iirc it was a bug where all the matches earned exp was funneled into player one, and only player one, allowing him to earn upwards of 300 exp a game.

    Generally all we can say is, "Damn... that sucks..." then point you towards Fox's Bank Back Up topic, stickied in this forum, and go "Well, now you know for next time."

    Hi QxAgent, Did you copy everything from your computer before you reinstalled Windows? Your bank files could be in there somewhere and all you need to do is copy them back to the right folder.

    Alright I'll be nice. You might not be boned.

    Click Start > Computer > C:\ (or whatever your root is)

    Look for a folder titled Windows.old.

    Inside of Windows.old should be the contents of C:/Users/ from your previous installation if you did not format the hard drive prior to reinstallation. You can then follow fox's guide here to recover your bank. If you have any questions, you can continue posting them here.

    It doesn't take long to accumulate 10k xp. I can also tell you it doesn't take much skill judging by some of the 10 and 20k xp players we have now.

    Give it another try, and try to get into some Apollo Sec Team runs. Those can easily yield 200+ xp per run.

    Ramses II Help, I can't change my title!

    The most fun class in the game for me has consistently been assault. Don't worry about xp, the higher level classes aren't as cool as assault. Don't worry about cp, it takes 10 games to rebuild. Don't worry about credits, they really don't matter at all in the vast majority of games. (personal opinion, not looking to start an argument)

    Find some part of NOTD that you already have unlocked or close to unlocked with your old bank account and have fun with that while you build yourself back up to your former glory.

    I have CP in three classes. I still have 71 cp in the class you unlock at 100xp. I have 19 cp in the class you unlock at 500 xp. I have 11 cp in Commando/Psi Ops. I often have the most fun as Recon trying to get my damn Reaper to level 10, or as Marksman trying to Oh Sock one of every item in the game. Yes, I've made an art out of nuking Menoetes, but that's nothing compared to the satisfaction of OSOKing the fuck out of a parasite.
