Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
I think there was a file missing by accident that I had meant to put back in, but I was waiting until I was all ready for a completely new release with a bunch of new content...

So throw the attached file in the /data/tables/ directory (keeping its name as zLoadFirst-sct.tbm) and it should work... I hope... :nervous:

As in the actual master data directory or one I need to create in the mod folder?  Actually sorry, that's a dumb question, and it seems to be working now, thanks man! :)

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Should be the mod folder, but root /data/ would work. Its just not recommended since players sometimes leave files that might conflict with other mods there.

Glad to hear it works now. :)

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Using the latest release of jad 2.21 with the build from the installer causes the launcher (I'm using wxlauncher if it matters) to crash as soon as I hit play, I tried re-downloading everything but had no success, am I missing something?

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Sorry to hear that. :(  Can you download this debug build and pastebin the fs2_open.log?

It looks like it isn't even editing the fs2_open.log assuming it's the one in freespace2/data

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Newer builds are stuffing things like that in your AppData directory. Try looking in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\HardLightProductions\FreeSpaceOpen\data for the log file.

(Where username is... your username of course :))

Delta 1 still calls his MegaDOOM Torpedo (or something to that effect) the Helios Apocalypse.

Boyos: That's uh... very weird. What are your general system specs? Are you running a 64 bit operating system?

Thisisaverylongusername: Noted... :sigh:

Which version of wxLauncher are you using?

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
I'm running version 0.10.1 of wxlauncher, 64bit windows 7 service pack 1, 16 GB ram, AMD FX6300 six core processor at 3.5GHz, and an Nvidia GTX 760.

I'm also running wxlauncher as administrator.

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
I guess try a wxLauncher test build? 0.12.something?

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=89162.0

If that works, I'll be sure to add that to the list of requirements.

Using the latest test build of wxlauncher fixed it, thanks for the help :)

Good to hear! I hope you enjoy it!

I've added the wxLauncher requirement to the original post so everyone else will be aware.

Why do I not have shields in Pirate Queen Holley?

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
FRED didn't like the idea of Holley having fun in the sun so it decided to disable her shield subsystem. :nono:

No seriously, something weird happened that unticked the "Has Shield System" box for Holley, and reticking it and saving the mission didn't save that... And it only affected Holley, not her friends so... Yeah. I dunno. Clicking "force shields on" seems to fix it so... I'll upload a fix soonish...

EDIT: Okay, there's a fix available now. Update through the installer to get the update file.

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Is it possible to run the new JAD without SDL2? SDL2 takes a constant "left bank" command from my joystick no matter what I do. It makes completing any mission unbearable (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=92821.0). The joystick itself is fine (I can play older FS2 SCP builds, Star Citizen, Arma 3 and IL-2 games normally), so the problem must be within the SDL2 integration.

I remember there was a build consisting of APNG support before SDL2. But was the new "movie player" support before or after SDL2?  :wtf:

Any help is greatly appreciated  :(

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
The new movie player was added after SDL2. You might need to rebind the joystick axes since the mapping may have changed with SDL2.

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
I'm sorry to hear that, Lykurgos88. :( I don't know how easy it would be to have an SDL2-less build. Also I think there are some scripting IO quirks that required me to change things for SDL2, so even then it might not work correctly. I hope you can get it fixed (or... play mouse and keyboard? (just putting ideas out there! :nervous:))
