Help! Corrupted pilot file

<< < (3/3)

FSW:
Something similar happened to me; FS2O will crash if I select my WoD pilot file. This occurs with only this pilot file, and under any mod I try to run. The problem started after I made a change; I had previously been getting some radar glitches, so I re-downloaded and replaced MV_RadarIcons (in mediavps_3612) and the entire WoD folder. I have posted my debug log below. It appears to contain a number of errors regarding .TBL files; which is odd, if my pilot file is the problem.

Can anyone familiar with the campaign tell me (without spoilers, preferably!) whether I'd be missing much (in terms of campaign variables) if I used the Tech Room cheat? I was on the mission where Spoiler:you have to defend an LSF frigate as it repairs its engines; after rescuing the Cordi Queen, and had previously chosen the MkIII-E and completed all secondary objectives.

Uhm. That's a lot of usable files that it's found in those directories. I'd suggest starting there and clearing those out.

And chances are good that the Pilot file in non-recoverable. Hopefully you are still using 1 Pilot per Mod or Campaign or Universe, if not, you have my sincerest apologies. If you haven't been or are aware of the Clone Feature, I suggesting create a New Pilot (call it Blank or something) and make your key-bindings and options changes with it. Then for each Mod (especially one with its own standalone Universe like WoD) Clone that "Blank" Pilot for use.

(And because I'm a FSU guy)
Please to get the Update/Patch VPs as well, you will find them on the Second Post in the MediaVPs Release Thread.

Droid803:
Didn't WoD come with several campaign files, that start later on in the campaign? Just start from one of those. Or did I just get those because I was beta tester (and SVN didn't clear them out)?

Alright, hand in that badge droid  :p


--- Quote from: FSW on January 18, 2011, 09:41:00 am ---Something similar happened to me; FS2O will crash if I select my WoD pilot file. This occurs with only this pilot file, and under any mod I try to run. The problem started after I made a change; I had previously been getting some radar glitches, so I re-downloaded and replaced MV_RadarIcons (in mediavps_3612) and the entire WoD folder. I have posted my debug log below. It appears to contain a number of errors regarding .TBL files; which is odd, if my pilot file is the problem.

Can anyone familiar with the campaign tell me (without spoilers, preferably!) whether I'd be missing much (in terms of campaign variables) if I used the Tech Room cheat? I was on the mission where Spoiler:you have to defend an LSF frigate as it repairs its engines; after rescuing the Cordi Queen, and had previously chosen the MkIII-E and completed all secondary objectives.

Seems to me like you are yet an other victim to a red-alert related issue. The mission you'll play right after the one you talked about in the spoiler tags is strung together via red-alert. Apparantly, this is cause number one for corrupting pilot files in WoD.  :(
There are quite a lot of campaign variables in the WoD campaign. but if I recall correctly, the point of the campaign you are at now there is only one that is still active. Being the choice between the Ray-E or W. So while far from ideal, it is possible to finish the campaign through the tech room (you'll just have to do without the E)

Droid803:
What? I didn't download the release version cause I had it on SVN already. I just didn't kill the old campaign files :nervous:
I was saving bandwidth for moar animu (and save bandwidth on hosting site too!)
