Surprised how that would fix it, but if it works, it works (heck I can't even find the line you're referencing). The error is related to the saved data storage, so (in case it doesn't end up working out) I imagine a more clean fix would be to delete any remnants of save files and LuaData-prefixed files from the episode folder.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.
All my assets from packs and episodes are free to use for non-Novaverse levels and projects, as long as proper credit is given.
