Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

I’d put my money on the cheats causing this, not the update.

I had no issues with the cheats before though (it didn’t even really work anyways)

Cheats are finicky things. You should always back up your save files regularly when using them as they can definitely cause this sort of situation. You especially shouldn’t keep cheats activated when they’re not functionjng correctly. It’s still affecting “something”, even if it isn’t useful for it’s intended purpose.

So everything I’ve worked hard for is forever gone now with no return huh?

If you didn’t back it up at any point or used a save state to record your progress, then yes. It’s probably gone.
This is why you always need to be careful with cheat codes.
