Newb needs help with crash bug
Hi folks,

Loving the game thus far but I seem to have run into a snag:
Quote
Could not load in 2_CommandBrief-mb!
ntdll.dll! ZwWaitForSingleObject + 21 bytes
kernel32.dll! WaitForSingleObjectEx + 67 bytes
kernel32.dll! WaitForSingleObject + 18 bytes
fs2_open_3_6_18.exe! <no symbol>
fs2_open_3_6_18.exe! <no symbol>

I get that everytime I try to play the next mission after the prologue (the one that comes after the "explorer" goes all white bloomy) and can go no further.

Please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

Re: Newb needs help with crash bug
Almost certain this is due to missing or incorrectly installed 3.6.12 MVPs. Should be an easy fix.

I got the latest one from 2014, would that be the problem?

It crashed before it even loaded the game this time (when I tried the debug setup).

Re: Newb needs help with crash bug
Post the fs2_open.log file, but yeah, you need the 3.6.12 MediaVPs as outlined in the Wings of Dawn install instructions. 2014 MVPs won't work.

We're working on an online installer to eliminate this kind of dependency hell.

Re: Newb needs help with crash bug
You need at least FS2 Open 3.7.1 to use the 2014 MediaVPs and it seems you're using 3.6.18.
If installing the 3.6.12 MediaVPs doesn't fix your problem you should probably remove the 2014 MVPs.

Re: Newb needs help with crash bug
The 2014 MVPs aren't causing him any problems right now because Wings of Dawn doesn't load them. But if you want to use them in another context, yeah, you'll need a newer build.

Well its clearly not loading the 3.6.12 ones either!

Wild09, the easiest fix is probably to open the mod.ini file and change
secondarylist = mediavps_3612;
to
secondarylist = mediavps_2014;
and save the mod.ini

With the major disclaimer that I have not actually tested WoD with the latest mediavp's but it should work out mostly okay (I think/hope)
Urutorahappī!!

Yep. That was the problem! Thanks, chief. The game is working great now. Wooooo!

Re: Newb needs help with crash bug


That was all you changed? That shouldn't have fixed anything unless you also implemented Spoon's change or you'd previously altered the name of the mediavps_2014 folder.

Yep. That's all I changed.

Maybe I goofed something when I originally made the mediavps 2014 folder...

or just
