Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty keeps failing validation

Post by p1r473 » 11 Nov 2019, 22:51

Hello,
Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty keeps failing archive validation after creation of savegame.
I have even removed the folder, and allowed the game client to redownload the whole folder (C:\Users\J\Documents\StarCraft II)
It fails every time I test it.

Code: Select all

=========================
	GameSave Manager
			Log

Have you tried running a 'validation check' on the archive manually?
This should provide a little more information. Failing this, could you send me the archive in question? You can PM me it (here or on Discord; I'm InsaneMatt#9824 there).

I suspect that your archive is fine but the checks are producing a false positive, but we can confirm this if I can get my hands on the archive.

To cut a long story short, p1r473 sent me the archive through Discord.
We came to the conclusion that the file NTSTORY~1.SC2 is the cause. It's use of a 8.3 filename is causing Windows (or possibly GameSave Manager; we never fully ran the issue down) to not correctly process the file correctly.
