Nice :yes:

 
Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
I seem to be running into the same issue as hack-wizard.  On the first VN sequence of the game it has an error and can't find certain files like title_holleyB, title_holleyA, title_MervB, etc.

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Are you using the version on Knossos or from the FSO Installer? Knossos should work but I haven't updated the Installer files yet (will be doing that tonight!)

EDIT: (Actually I can see from your debug log its the installer, so hang tight!)

 
Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Thanks for the reply.  If i get impatient enough I may try out Knossos.  Looks all fancy and posh.

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Yeah, it's a wonderful program! Super easy to get stuff installed and uploaded. Its just a bit of a shame that you need to basically redownload all your past mods, but atleast user data is still saved.

Anyway, FSO Installer files now updated!

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
I PMed Axem about this but I'll ask here too in case anyone has any ideas:

I ran the FSO Installer recently to see if there were any updates for any of my campaigns and I had a problem with JAD 2.21.  I got this message:

"The following error was encountered:

Just Another Day 2.21:  You Are Not Alpha 1:  The has value for 'jad221_root.vp' did not agree with the expected value.  This could indicate a corrupted download or a problem with the mod.  If this problem persists over multiple attempts, contact the mod author for assistance.  The file has been deleted'


Up until I tried this today I haven't had any technical problems with JAD 2.2 campaigns.

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread

Yes, I ran the Installer a few times in a row, and each time the cycle repeated.  It downloaded the 'root' file for 2.21 but then it gave that error message and after a while of the top line saying 'computing hash values' the top line icon for 2.21 on the Installer had the red dot light up after a minute or two each time.  When I went to the next screen I saw that error message I posted.


However, I encountered a unique work around.  I ran the Installer again...after the root file was finished downloading it went to the computing hash values phrase...before it was finished with that phase of the installation I hit 'cancel' on the Installer.  I looked in the JAD 2.2 folder and I had the 'root' file for 2.21 without getting that error message on the Installer.  I loaded up the campaign and I was able to play JAD 2.21 now.

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Weird, the jad221 root md5 doesn't match with the installer file. Maybe I forgot to update that one from a previous version. I'll fix it tomorrow.

Re: Just Another Troubleshooting Thread
Okay, the file hash should be fixed now.
