I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop 64-bit running Windows 7.
I have played the first 3 chapters of TOMI, the non-steam versions, just fine all the way through to the end.
I played chapter 4 up to the point of the 3rd course for la esponja. Up to that point I had played the game several times in short spurts, loading both saved and autosaved files with no problem.
Now none of my save files will load, nor will my autosave load. Here is what happens: The launcher loads fine, the startup menu for TOMI chapter 4 loads fine. When I select Resume Game or try to load my saved game, the sound and screen animations stop immediately. Everything is frozen for about a second. Then the game just exits completely. As the game exists, there is a small dialog window that appears very very very briefly that says something but it impossible to read before it disappears.
I have rebooted, uninstalled wacom drivers, rebooted, updated directX, rebooted, etc. I can't recall any significant changes to my system over the last few days since I last played.
As a test, I started a new game of chapter 4. I was able to load the autosave of this new game as well as an explicit save file of that new game just fine. Still I am unable to load my old save files.
I would love to be able to pick up where I left off in my previous saved games and of course I'm concerned that the problem may reappear with my new game once I get to that point in the game again.
I have attached my dxdiag.txt file, my autosave file, and my prefs file. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
