  1. Didn’t work. I’m getting this error when trying to generate a new Random Generated World in the experimental A20 branch. I’ve been seeing others able to gen a new world just fine. But it will not work for me. I’ve deleted all save game files, never played Navezgane and there’s no save game file in the Navezgane folder for me. It’s just empty. Any idea how to fix this? I’ve uninstalled the game, and reinstalled, still happens… I’m absolutely lost at this point.
