Not sure if this is a problem with the latest upload (1.2.2) or if it is a problem with Knossos, or if it is a problem with the fact that I'm trying to do this on Linux.
BUT, what is happening is I was playing through 1.2.1 and had gotten to the mission where I'm supposed to escort the Vasudan ambassador (Hammer's Edict, I think it's called). I had some trouble figuring out how best to approach the mission and set it aside for a week or so. I came back some time later and saw that there was an update available. I figured, hey! why not? Installed the 1.2.2 update and then tried to play. The BtA intro video was not there, just the FSPort video. Then I am told that the active campaign is missing. I check the campaign list and sure enough nothing is there. I wonder if I tried to run the wrong mod by mistake out of Knossos, but sure enough it is BtA.
I'm very confused at this point, so I try some amateur problem solving. I have Knossos verify mod file integrity. I then get the message:
"An error was detected while validating the game file integrity. The following packages are invalid:
-Package BTA_Root of mod Between The Ashes
-Package BTA_Core of mod Between The Ashes
-Package BTA_Maps of mod Between The Ashes
-Package BTA_Movies of mod Between The Ashes
-Package BTA_Music of mod Between The Ashes
-Package BTA_Voice of mod Between The Ashes
-Package BTA_Anims1 of mod Between The Ashes
-Package BTA_Advanced of mod Between The Ashes
These mods are invalid and need to be redownloaded before they can be played without errors.
Do that now?"
Then, thinking, "Oh great! Problem Solved!" of course I say do that now and wait for everything to download again. Then after coming back from some chores or something, I see the following dissapointment:
"A critical error has occurred! Knossos might not work correctly until you restart it. The error has been reported and will hopefully be fixed soon."
I've been through this redownloading cycle nearly 4 times now. I keep getting a validation error. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Is this the right forum for me to post this? Or should I move this to the Knossos thread?
