I'd like to fix this, but this is a two-pronged problem. Would you mind uploading the file you find here?

[GameLocation]\PlayerData\Save\_Internal\LastLobbySettings.save

After you upload that, you can delete that file and your problems will go away. Right now, the problem is that whatever was going on in your most recent settings -- from whatever version -- are partially loading, but then causing lots of problems after that partial load. Without being able to replicate it locally, it's hard for me to fix, since it's probably a whole host more errors that will happen after I fix the ones that you saw directly. These usually cascade.

I can either fix it to dump the save file if it errors that hard (if I have to), or fix it to read whatever is actually going on there. I will probably wind up doing both.

In the meantime, you can work around it by deleting that one file, but ideally you should never ever have to do that, so that's something for me to fix for sure.

Thanks!

Thanks for looking into this, the file in question is attached.

Cheers!

Hrm, this is odd. Even after deleting the lobby save file, it appears to regenerate with its "last modified time" being yesterday. It's still outputting errors, which are probably the same but I'll attach the log just in case.

Alright, I have an update:
I was able to fix the issue by getting the LastLobbySettings.save file from a friend of mine. After I replaced my clearly corrupted file, everything worked fine. Prior to this, I had deleted the file in question, verified the game cache through Steam, and uninstalled and reinstalled.
Perhaps this issue was unique to me, and it will no longer require attention.

I do plan to use your version to figure out a bug, but this week has been incredibly hectic for me and I haven't been able to get to as many work items as I wanted. I'm glad you have it sorted, but I'm also really grateful for the files you shared, because I do want to stop it from happening in similar circumstances in the future. I should have shared my copy of the lobby settings with you, sorry about that. I should have thought of that!
