PostSubject: (Fixed) First Issue   Sat Oct 30, 2010 9:24 pm

Just sat through the turning scene for Salubri and when it was about to go to the prince scene I got the following error:
"no precache: models/character/npc/unique/the_final_nights/intro/ventrue_staker2/ventrue_staker2.mdl"
and my game crashed..>>

and another, before I even got to the first scene this time with Salmedi:
no precache: models/character/npc/common/goth_kids/male/goth_male.mdl

Just tried Settites with the same result as the first. Trying another clean install to see if I've made some errors..

Fresh install and same problem.. I can't seem to play this game.. Sad

Hmmm, I watching the Salubri opening scene right now and it's working fine. Yah, you might want to reinstall Bloodlines.

It seems I'm just having no luck, a full uninstall and reinstall and this is my only copy on this computer of VTM and still it's causing the same fail point. I don't think this has anything to do with it but the other character in the turning scene has no skin what so ever, just a patchwork of purple and black.

Using CD's for installation and running Windows XP

I just installed my own fresh copy of Bloodlines, I'm going to copy over the same file you have and see if it does the same thing. I'll report my findings here in a minute.

Shit, same thing just happened to me. Well I'll be up late tonight, lol.

Boy o Boy did I f*ck up!! Well, the good news is I still have the working copy on my computer but it's the full version of the game, so what I'm going to do is go through it and delete anything I we don't need to make it as small as I can, then repackage it and get it out to you guys.

Sorry about this everyone. pale

Ahh well at least we found this problem early. Don't be too worried about it if you can't get it fixed tonight, I'm sure no ones going to complain about you getting some sleep before fixing it. Good to see it's not just my computer though, I was a little worried..

I figured out the problem, stupid me... I should've figured this out when the file size was only around 650MB uncompressed.

Ok, here's what happened. Over the past 10 months any file that I change I store off to the side in a special "TFN" folder. Well I gave you guys that folder which is nice n all, unfortunately it completly slipped my mind that I built TFN on top of CE 1.2. Well I accidently didn't give you guys CE 1.2 w/ TFN Beta.

So here's what I did, I took the whole directory that I've been working out of and trimmed all the fat off of it. I got it down to 1.2GB in size uncompressed which is huge I know. After compressing it the size is now 816MB which is still huge. I guess that makes sense being that CE 1.2 and TFN Beta are both combined.

What's really making this expansion big in size are all the new .wav and .mp3 files. The graphical stuff is pretty small but the new sounds I added like the diner music, the opening game song, etc is really what's killing us but hey, it's all in the name of a great game!

I'm going to upload it which will probably take 3 hours, then I'll go to bed and get you guys the link tomorrow morning (my time, afternoon for you europeans).

Again I apologize, the 350MB (compressed) size should've tipped me off.

Your cool Shabutaro...

Alright guys, the new file has been uploaded and I've sent you all a PM with the new location and password. I promise this mega huge 797MB file will work, LOL.

Have fun!

got some errors when unpacking, something regarding archive being corrupt....but hey, the game works. It's just that the menu background is a set of pink squares instead of a proper image and I'm guessing this ain't right. Haven't tried re-downloading yet, but I will and see if it got corrupted somehow during the downloading.

PGM1961 just reported the same error. I wonder if something got corrupted on the way up from my computer to the file hosting server. Going to download now and see what I get.

It's strange because normally Filesend is a very reliable server. I used them for CE 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 without any problems. Well I'm downloading now so we'll see.

Just extracted my download, a couple of the music files failed but I don't think it should cause and problems, just about to test the game now.

Ok, make it through the first scenes no problem, slight error in the tutorial though, after I snuck around past the first guard and was sent back out to kill him the second he saw me it reset as if I had been sneaking past. I managed to stealth kill him and get through but it I was seen then it just reset, replaying the exploding bit like when you sneak even though the door to jack was open...

Here is the message I got when I tried to extract the file...

! C:\Documents and Settings\Zer0Morph\Desktop\TFN Beta 10-31-10.zip: CRC failed in the encrypted file Vampire\models\character\npc\unique\the_final_nights\downtown\akeem\akeem.mdl (wrong password ?)
! C:\Documents and Settings\Zer0Morph\Desktop\TFN Beta 10-31-10.zip: The archive is corrupt


Because everyone is having this issue here is what I'm going to do. I'm going to repackage TFN Beta in a non-encrypted file, remove the current download, reupload the new one, download it and try to extract it and make sure it works before I send a mass email to you guys. I feel so bad (even though this one wasn't my fault) that you guys have had to keep downloading this stupid thing. I promise the next one will be bug free by testing it on myself before telling you to download it.

I will repackage it now and hopefully get it uploaded tonight. You should receive another PM tomorrow or Tuesday, until then feel free to play the corrupted one but know I am getting this fixed one uploaded here in a day or two, so you will want to reinstall that one.

Oddly enough the files I got that didn't extract were mp3 files, that why I didn't see it as a problem, perhaps it's simply the size of the zip? Maybe upload it in two pieces instead?

Also, something else noted, playing the Salubri I've noticed that I miss the first blood point whenever I feed, now it makes since for forced feeding but consensual feeding seems to do the same thing..

Anyway, I'll leave it there for now...

Well here's the latest update on things. I uploaded the new unencrypted zip file overnight. When I went to bed at 11:30pm it was 45% done. I woke up this morning expecting good news when I found my IE browser closed and the upload didn't finish. Apparently at some point I had some spyware that got on my machine. I thought I took care of it but apparently it's still causing havoc on uploading.

So, when I get home tonight I'm going to reimage my computer with a fresh copy of Windows XP. I'm going to upload the file before I do anything else making sure that it uploads ok. Then I'll redownload it and test it and make sure it works before I send out yet another PM to all of you. Someone told me it took them 5 hours to download it and asked if I could use a different file server. For this Beta version I'm going to say no because I know filesend works and I'm not going to dig around the internet looking for a different file server to save someone 1 hour of download time. When we release the public version then we'll have it on multiple sites including Patches-Scrolls but for now I'm going for reliability over speed.

Again I apologize that this has been such a pain in the ass, but this second issue wasn't my fault I promise.

Edit: In case filesend isn't working then I'll probably switch to a different site, but only if I'm forced too. We'll see...
