Old Saved Games

I have a saved game from the previous version of UQM.  Will it work with the newer version of UQM?

Easy answer: "Try it and see."

Real answer:
Yeah, probably.  The only major danger is that some memory corruption got saved into an old game, or that some fixes to the game logic have caused you to be in an inconsistent state.

Example.

In 0.2, you don't get the Syreen ships when you should; only after an unrelated conversation item is selected.  If your 0.2 savegame is past the point where you should get the ships, but before where 0.2 would give you the ships, then when you take that savegame to 0.3, you will never be able to get the ships at all in that game.
