Well I just managed to stumble through it and my fully party including two mules is now at the beginning of my Camera Fixed Ehb map but on hard difficulty since they have some levels to them heh.
A couple of things I noticed. On Ehb you start on a bridge. It won't let you load your party since there isn't enough walkable ground to load the party. Once I moved forward onto the land where there was enough space that seemed to do the trick.
Another thing I noticed. DSmod does not like the saves with the time stamp. To get a save I wanted I had to go into windows explorer and truncate the time stamp so the saved game only had the save name I chose.
Another thing that seem to help is I put savegamename.dssave
Alot of the time I tried without the .dssave it would tell me save game doesn't exist. Yet when I typed party <enter> it showed me it did. The reason I think for using <ctrl> s to save is to keep it from adding that time stamp.
So simply to replay ehb I saved my last save with <ctrl> s and typed in Transfer and hit <enter> to save. I then loaded a new game with my original characters name. Once into the new game of Ehb, I ran forward just a bit to get off the bridge. Then I hit the tilde (~) key and type "party load transfer.dssave" without quotes and it proceeded to load the old party. Then saved it once it was done. Everytime I tried the command on the bridge it kept saying mouse on invalid floor or something like that. That's what inspired me to move to a wider ground area.
Also I don't think you have to make the new game with the name of your original character or any character of your party. I proceeded to load my MP player character. My wifes character. My mules. Once I figured out you have to have the room on the ground where you are standing I could load ANY save game I had except the time stamped ones. And the fix for that is to open explorer and take out any spaces in the save game name.
Hopefully this helps you. I don't think the .dssave is much of an issue as much as the open ground space to place the party around your position in the map.
