I have been trying to revive Strife (I'm a big fan). I used to play it on VaVoom 1.22, but I quit playing due to the sewers-crashing-after-castle-visit bug (see bugreport). I now returned here and read that this bug got fixed, so I got VaVoom 1.31 to continue playing, but the savegame structure has changed and I can no longer load my old saves. I also tried downloading and using my saves with versions 1.24 and 1.23, but neither of those would load my savegames, although they did show up in the savegame list with the correct savegame name.
I read that this problem of savegames between versions is known, but I was wondering if there is any way to fix it at all. It's a bit of a bummer since I 1) needed a new version to play the fixed strife, but 2) cannot use my old savegame progress.
If there is absolutely no way to convert my savegame files, is there anyone with a Strife savegame up to the point of entering the sewers via the castle through the drainage system? The part where you turn the wheel and get the water level to drop so that you can enter the sewer system.
