Cardinal Spear issues
Hello, sorry to be a bother once more...

So Cardinal spear isn't working for whatever reason (both the one installed through Turey's installer and the one from here).  I do have the log file contents here:

File: cfilesystem.cpp
Line: 719

I made sure not to change any file or folder names from default (where in use).  I did change the line in the mod file indicating which mods to use (the only change being "secondrylist = fsport-mediavps,fsport,mediavps;" to "secondrylist = fsport-mediavps,fsport,mediavps_3612;", as that is the folder I see in my list, and this has worked for several others.

Does anyone see something I don't?  And if so, how may I go about fixing it?  Thanks in advance to all! ^^;

Guessing your MV_Advanced.vp is broken. Please try redownloading it from the 3.6.12 MediaVPs release thread.

Re: Cardinal Spear issues
Strange that that would be the case, given that many other mods have worked so far... I'll still go do that, and I'll keep posted on whether it solves the issue or not.

EDIT: Nope, the issue continues.  As far as the mods I've checked so far, this is now the only one with issues.

Re: Cardinal Spear issues
Which build of FS2Open are you running?

Does the mediavps_3612 mod work?

 
Re: Cardinal Spear issues
I'm running FS2Open 3.6.12 (judging from the number on the executables pointed to by the launcher), and the mediavps_3612 mod alone does indeed work.

Is it at all possible that Cardinal Spear requires older files, or have others been able to run it with the current ones (well, current released, as opposed to the even newer incremental builds)?

Re: Cardinal Spear issues
Could you run debug build and post the log with only 3.6.12 Mediavps enabled?
The last part certainly looks strange.

Strange. The checksum for that file did not match the one given in the release thread. And it should have made the game barf up sooner.

Also, how long is your pilot name for Cardinal Spear? There's a 31 character limit for file names, including the file extension.

Re: Cardinal Spear issues
Seems I made a nub mistake when replacing the MV_Advanced.vp, simply renaming it and placing the new one in its place (in many cases, this is enough, and I thought it might be the case here too), but apparently it was still trying to read it and exploding then and there when loading CS... oddly, it never encountered that problem previously, which only leads to further questions... the old MV_Advanced.vp is 1/3 the size of the re-downloaded one, which might well lead to explaining certain things.

All that said, removing the renamed file altogether (instead of having it sit around renamed) seems to have corrected the issue... Guess I'll know for next time on that one.  Sorry about that, and thanks for the help!

[Note] Jeff Vader, you posted while I was writing this reply... My pilot name is 12 characters long, so I'm fairly certain that isn't an issue ("Singularity").  As for the timing of the game running into issues, might the presently noticed issue have had something to do with it?

Yeah. If a file is either in the root \freespace2\ directory or under an active mod folder AND has the file extension .vp, the game engine will try to use it as a resource according to the priority rules. That is, if two .vp files in the same folder contain for example the same texture, the texture in the .vp that is alphabetically first will be used. So, when doing these file corruption tests, renaming a file to "MV_Advblarghjrgi.vp" isn't all that good but renaming it to "MV_Advanced.vpmaybebroken" would work. As would moving the offending fiile completely outside your \freespace2\ directory.

My pilot name is 12 characters long, so I'm fairly certain that isn't an issue ("Singularity").  As for the timing of the game running into issues, might the presently noticed issue have had something to do with it?
Yeah, no problems with that pilot name. I don't know how this setup brought the broken file up. If it was really broken, it should have caused some noise immediately when used. I don't know why now.
