To Reproduce:

  1. Save the game normally (with a unique file name). Wait until it is finished. Remember the filename of the saved game file.
  2. Via console, navigate to the directory where the game was saved at. (if needed)
  3. Via console, attempt loading the saved game. It should fail.
  4. Use the ls command via console.
  5. Load the saved game via console. It should work.

Reported version: Version?
Operating system: All

FWIW, I'm using OpenTTD Version 1.7.1 running on Win 7 Ultimate, and one possible reason is saved file doesn't get indexed until a file command is executed.

Can't reproduce in rev. cd966f3 (with some additional music patches).

Steps taken:

  1. Start new game, build a few tiles of rail
  2. Click Save button, navigate two folders up, delete suggested name, type in testme
  3. Quit OpenTTD completely
  4. Start OpenTTD again
  5. Open console
  6. Type cd .. twice
  7. Type load testme
    The saved game is loaded without problems.

However one thing I noticed, trying out various things, was that changing directory in console with cd and then saving from console with save filename, the savegame file was put in the default save game directory, not the directory changed to. I don't know if that's intentional or not.

Thanks for this. At the time of writing this appears to be an isolated bug, and hard to reproduce. We do try to address bugs where they occur frequently and/or are easy to reproduce, but this one doesn't look like we can any go further, so I'm closing it. Thanks for contributing!
