Does anyone know how to fix this issue. I was in the middle of a game using Assyria. I was dominating Idonisia with the Siege units, but the game crashed. Then when I tried to load the game, the game crashed with a Visual C++ Runtime error.
Any idea how to fix this? I already tried going offline and I tried verifying the game cache.
After searching for hours I FINALLY found out how to fix it and I'm posting it for others who may have this issue since it's an extremely hard one to fix.
So basically the issue is with a corrupted Steam Cloud save. When you Steam Cloud Save corrupts it prevents you even going to the Steam Cloud screen so you cant load games or save games in the cloud. It effects you even with offline mode. You have to delete or overwrite the games saved in the cloud to fix the issue.
Follow these steps step by step and the issue should be fixed
It caused my game to crash (Runtime error) as soon as i pressed the "Load Game" button, [Please not, this is the "Load Game" button directly after the "Single Player" button (even before you get to choose which game to load)]
So what to do.
Open steam Go to Steam--->Setting--->Downloads+cloud Untick "Enable Steam Cloud sync" Then Steam--->Go offline...
Then go to your steam userdata dir (in my case C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata) Click on the numbers folder (your Steam ID) look for the number folder "8930" (Civ V app ID) delete everything inside (This is your steam cloud saves for Civ V) Launch Civ V Start a game play 2 turns Save the game in steam could exit Civ exit steam go to the Civ App ID folder again delete remotecache.vdf start steam Go to online mode tick "Enable Steam Cloud sync" (Steam--->Setting--->Downloads+cloud) Start Civ A Cloud Sync Conflict dialog should appear Select "Upload to the Steam Cloud" The game should then start
And your loading errors should be a thing of the past.
