Total Miner: Forge.  Please take a photo of this screen and post it on TotalMinerForums.net, so that we can fix it. Thank you.

For those having problems with windows file access in the default Documents\My Games\TotalMiner path or if you just want to change it to something else, add an entry into the game.ini file like so:

SaveRoot=D:\GameSaves\TotalMiner

or whatever path you want that will not give the access errors.

To access the game.ini file, right click Total Miner in your library, select Properties, Local Files, Browse Local Files.

If you can't follow the instructions above, then sorry @Tonydethjr I don't know how to help you at the moment. I'd suggest getting a refund.

This is what you have to do:
  • Go to steam and right click Total Miner
  • Click "Properties"
  • Now click "Local Files" on the top and click "Browse Local Files"
     
  • Now inside the Total Miner folder, double click on the "game.ini" file
     
  • Now Paste this ( SaveRoot=D:\GameSaves\TotalMiner ) into the "game.ini" file
     
  • Start Total Miner and it shouldn't crash

If it still crashes then
I'd suggest getting a refund.
Amazing Scripter!
