I am now at the end of the mission where i must find the 2 transports in the Guardian mines. After i escort the ships to the RV, a cinematic starts and the game crshes every time on the same spot with this message:

TSimpleNode.ChildByName fault: incorect name: RadarMarker_mission7_en5_hangar_cp
TDesktop.GetChild fault: control not found. See file "[DesktopTree]_All_For_Debug".

I have the version of the game, latest video drivers, XP SP2 and the following PC config:
Sempron 2800+ (@2200)
1GB ram
GF 7300GT 256MB DDR3
Playing the game on "mid" details.

Havent reinstalled the game, cause i couldn't find the saves, and i don't wanna start the game all over. So please tell me if there is a solution of the problem or just tell me how to backup my savegames.

Welcome to the boards.

Save games should be located under the Tarr Chronicles installation folder under the following path:


<someprofileid> = a value set by the game

after the .... there will be several subfolders one for each save I believe.

As for your error, I did a search on the quazar forum and it looks like others had to uninstall and reinstall to get past it, but Im not 100% that those errors are the same as yours as I dont have the time to check.

Thanks for the fast answer, i will try to reinstall the game now and i will post the results later.
Best regards.

Reinstalled the game - full reinstall, deleting all the files.
The problem persists. I even tried to load a previous save, or to restart the whole mission - no result. The game keeps crashing on the same spot.
Obviously i have to wait for a patch. Bad, i was on mission 7, as far as i know just 2 missions before the end.. :(
