FS2:SCP Steam Issue
I get this error when I try to run SCP on the Steam Version. It is when I click on the Ready Room door.

ERANGE: String error. Please Report.

Re: FS2:SCP Steam Issue
FUUUUUCK we should've thought of this *sob*

The problem is that your filepath is too long. We built FSO to work in C:\Games\FreeSpace2, not in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Freespace 2\

When it tries to load in files in the latter directory, the path is too long and it freaks out - there are more than 128 characters in the path + filename.

Can you move the Steam install directory using Steam Mover? Move it to a shorter location, like C:\Games\FreeSpace2\, and everything should be fine...

Re: FS2:SCP Steam Issue
What exactly is the technical code limitation that makes things derp out if the filepath is too long, and just how involved would it be to finally change it?

Re: FS2:SCP Steam Issue
A stopgap fix will be in 3.7.2 RC3, a more permanent one will happen in the next stable release (When we get support for zip archives as VP file replacements)

You guys have slated ZIP support over VPs?  Damnit you're awesome.
