This error message comes up after quite a lot of replacing/patching files has already gone on. Any ideas? Thanks a lot.

Oh - I had only installed the official patch prior to this.




ERROR: illegal 1-byte read from offset 24 of 0-byte file blun30.itm

Moved out of Not Bugs/No Action.


Do you have Throne of Bhaal installed? blun30.itm is from the expansion. If you do have the expansion installed, something may have gone awry with your install.


If you don't, we need to add a filesize check to one of the effect batches.

No need to apologize, I just wanted to make sure Cam sees this before he gets v4 out the door :)


You can change this yourself to make v3 install, but there'll be other changes you'll have to make. If you're interested I can explain how to fix it up; if not, v4 will be out soon.

Thanks Nythrun ... I would be interested in making the changes myself, but not if it means a lot of work on your end explaining things to me. If v4 will be out by this weekend, as I read in another thread, I don't want to take up your time with the explanation (but of course I appreciate the offer :) ).

It isn't a lot of work, it just might not make a lot of sense :)


You'll need a text editor that doesn't automatically format. Go to the Fixpack folder, within there are many subfolders. You'll want the folder "lib". There're about ten files in this folder, you want the one named "macro_fx_batch_prep.tph" (it really is just a text file, so it's safe to open in this way).


Line 24 of this file reads:

READ_BYTE 0x18 "flags"


You'll want to add in some text at the end of this line so it reads:

READ_BYTE 0x18 "flags" ELSE 0


Line 38 needs the same treatment, change:

READ_BYTE 0x33 "fx_type"



READ_BYTE 0x33 "fx_type" ELSE 0


And that should do it.
