Help - I edited my saved game

Hello.
I edited the saved game with EHM editor. I forget to do a backup of the save.

Now when I start the saved game, the training for goalkeepers are changed to train "new position" as Center.
When i start the game it tells me: TRAINING_MANAGER::load_from_disk() : cannot read human_team_training. But the game starts so i can play.
Then, when I check the trainingpage I see that the training for the goalies is changed so they have "new position - Center"
And i can't change that.
When I close the trainingside the game tells me: TRAINING_MANAGER::get_player_position_adapability() : invalid_position
And then as soon I press to continue to the next day, the game quits.

Is there something I can do to fix this? Or must I just give up the save and starts a new one?

Sorry for bad english

You will either need to revert to any backup copy you have or alternatively start a new game.

I edited a saved game also and got this error. I didn't edit anything to do with players. Why is this?

Editing a saved game almost always corrupts it. Whatever you edited will likely have caused it. There are many saved game tables which the Editor cannot view or edit. So when you make what might feel like an innocuous change, it can cause parts of the saved game to become out of sync or mismatched.

The best case scenario is you just undo your changes and it fixes it. The worst case is that permanent damage is done.

This is why the Editor shows a warning when you first load it to say that you must take backups and it isn't designed to edit saved games.
