Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
Not as far as i can tell.........Those command lines were ripped straight from the launcher6.ini. :confused:

I'm running my latest hardware drivers too... as noted in the GEForce driver sticky at the top of this board.

Heres my layout..

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
Select the build in the launcher, at the top (preferably a 3.6.10 debug build) and run the game. Play a mission or something which uses the files, and quit. Upload the fs2_open.log that you find in \FreeSpace2\data.

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
Looks like either a corrupt VP, or a rogue table. Check all the "data/tables" folders (in mediavp and in the root folder) And "mediavp" should be "mediavps".

I'll have to find the checksums for the .VPs, kara will have them.

Did it crash this time? (doesn't look like it) Where were you when it did?

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
I just kept clicking no to stay in game and left normally. I thought the debug.txt would get populated with more info if i stayed in game. But i'm afraid it'll have to wait til later as i've just been round the block believe it or not and i'm going to sleep. Appreciate all the help so far Cole. :warp:(debug=death on my phone text :lol:)

Do not touch the root_fs2.vp!

Problem is caused by the beta state 3.6.10 mediavps.

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
I'd never touch root.fs2. I'm not illiterate just non-code compliant. So what about these media.vps? Is this a common problem and are there patches or is there anything i can do to provide more information?

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
You are running Vista aren't you? Could be related to that, also, flush your cache folder in the data folder, That may help?  :nervous:

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
I've flushed the media.vp cache already. I'll try the standard data/cache too. BRB. . . . .

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
The beam problems aint gonna go away though in the beta mediavps with that.... The problem is the tables DaBrain got from Bobboau (AFAIK) that are actually build to use the code change Bob has made to his local copy. So for example support for more than five beam textures or type 2 tiling method does not exists. There is nothing you can do about it unless you either wait for the real release or extract the problematic tbm files from the beta mediavps, place them to data\tables of your mod directory and edit them locally.

Re: Already tried search and "read here first"
I always flush the folder everytime I make changes to my FSO setup, (New media vps etc.) A few people have had problems that have been fixed by clearing the cache. It may be worth pointing this out to a few people. So when they release a new VP set they put a read-me in telling people to do this!
