    Hi,

    I just tried to resume my game in The Dig and nothing happens. I can select the saved game from the Open box (and can see the thumbnail of the room I was in) but when I click Open it just doesn't load (no error message). Has anyone else run into this?

    Are you running it in OS9? I'm surprised it runs at all.

    Its been converted to OS X format, and is part of the Lucas Arts Adventure Pack in Steam.

    I'm afraid I cannot comment on the problem though, because I completed Dig ages ago on DOS and have no desire to play it again.

    No issues here. You'd probably have better luck on the Steam forums.

    I looked on the Steam forums and couldn't find anyone else with the problem. I then contacted support (which was a mission in itself) and they told me that my save file may be corrupted. "May" was an interesting word to use, since I attached the save file... they obviously didn't test it!

    So now it looks like I need to restart from the beginning. Sigh.

    How far were you? Maybe I could send you my save file.

    I wasn't too far in, and I know how to solve the puzzles now, so I think I'll be OK. Thanks for the offer though :)
