Installation troubles

Recommended Posts

Guest Liriodendron

I was in the install process watching stuff go by in the exe dos window, it uninstalled its old self all right, and started installing, but then it got to a Hubelpot and Kari dialogue and said it couldn't install that. It looked like the third dialogue install, I think. Then it rolled back and asked if I wanted to install again. It won't get past this; what can I do?

First somebody shoots me with a tranquilizer dart and throws my computer out the window while I'm unconscious, as an act of kindness.

 

The problem is that there is a copy paste error in the tp2. If you are comfortable making a change to the tp2, you can replace the lines in the first code block with those in the second and then rerun the setup.

 

Replace

// Hubelpot-Kari Material
ACTION_IF FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~bsc#hub.dlg~ AND FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~bmgkari.dlg~
THEN BEGIN
 PRINT ~Adding SoA banters between Hubelpot and Kari...~
 COMPILE ~CrossmodBG2/SoA/Banters/Hubelpot-Kari/Fade-Tsujatha_Banters.d~
 EXTEND_BOTTOM ~BMGKariD.bcs~ ~CrossmodBG2/SoA/Banters/Hubelpot-Kari/Hubelpot-Kari_BMGKariD.baf~
END

 

with

 

// Hubelpot-Kari Material
ACTION_IF FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~bsc#hub.dlg~ AND FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~bmgkari.dlg~
THEN BEGIN
 PRINT ~Adding SoA banters between Hubelpot and Kari...~
 COMPILE ~CrossmodBG2/SoA/Banters/Hubelpot-Kari/Hubelpot-Kari_Banters.d~
 EXTEND_BOTTOM ~BMGKariD.bcs~ ~CrossmodBG2/SoA/Banters/Hubelpot-Kari/Hubelpot-Kari_BMGKariD.baf~
END

 

If you aren't comfortable doing that, you can wait a little while. This is the second strike for this, as in the second time the folder name hasn't matched the file, so I'd really like to make sure there isn't a third. I'm going to doublecheck them all before putting up a corrected version.

 

Since there are dozens of individual components to check, and dozens of files, this will take several hours, but I'll get a corrected version up this evening.

 

Edit: I should probably point out that I tested the new banters, except for Kulyok's Tiax and for Kari. By the time I got to installing those two NPCs, my computer was running at about one frame every other second due to lag and my dialog.tlk was alphabet soup. Which is why these two are faulty.

It isn't trouble! It needed to be fixed.

 

Just one question: did it work?

My computer can't read that kind of file, so I have to wait for an update it can handle. I'm not surprised--it is a rather old and dodgy machine.

You can open the file with any text editor like Notepad, but never mind. K'aeloree is putting together an update.

We tried to install Crossmod v7, but it doesn't work. When we run the setup.exe, the dos box thingy opens, but disappears immediately afterwards. I've had this problem before and just restarted or ran the setup until the dos box stayed open as it should, but this time it doesn't work. What can we do about it?

I ran to the exactly same problem. Dos-window opens but then the whole installation process suddenly aborts.

 

Edit. Go it working. Some problem with the self-extracting .exes, suppose.
