Can not open alpha 0.43 at all.

Postby zest » Thu Sep 10, 2015 11:48 pm UTC

So i first downloaded the game in 0.42 couldn't get the standard zip file download to work without it having errors, so im stuck doing the torrent method and that actually got me somewhere and i was able to extract files and open the game. Alpha 0.43 comes around and i do the same thing and its all well and good, i get it extracted and i set up my pkg file inside of the Win64 file and go for the launcher and at first it was saying something about the file path and how i lack permission, did not encounter this with 0.42. i set it to run as admin and it no longer shows that message but now when i click on the launcher, i get the hourglass next to my cursor, and then nothing. it just sits there and never opens, or shows any error messages, or anything. As if it tried to open it then changed its mind 4 seconds later.
So where do i got from here?

Microsoft Windows 8.1 (build 9600), 64-bit
Radeon HD 8670M
game version: Alpha 0.43

Ss a side note, if you want me to go rooting around in files or find some kind of log for something specific give me basic instructions i can understand.

Wow...Sorry for the difficulty getting the game up and running. Could you try running this from command line? Firstly, could you tell us the exact permission error you get? Then, for the not running part, perhaps try the 32bit binaries and see if they are any different. Also, it is recommended that you do not extract the launchers to their own directory and instead open the zip, ctrl-a, ctrl-c, go back, ctrl-v, so all the files inside will be inside the same folder as all the zips.

Alright, so if you want something form command line you will need to tell me how to do that as im not well versed in computers beyond normal use. as far as the permission error goes, i cant seem to recreate the error, but from what i can remember, it said something about the file path and listed it then it said something about not having permission, the permission was a weird thing since im the soul owner of this computer with only 1 account that is the admin. but anyway that is really all i can tell you about the permission error as it was fixed by telling it to run as admin. so beyond this i did try running the 32 bit version and it does the same thing as the 64 bit version as far as i know. i "attempted" to configure the file like you listed but i was still a bit confused but i did what it said and upon clicking the launcher it will still not open on both versions, no guarantee that i had it set up right but i think it was right since it did not give me an error when i tried to launch it like it does if they are not moved at all.

On another note i did see something i would consider pretty strange, i tried opening the game while i have my task manager running in advanced view and could see no defined increase of usage in disk, cpu, or gpu usage. beyond this it does not show as a running program, but in the background programs list its opened multiple times from me trying a few times to run it. its not really using any resources and the one that says only daemon, can not be stopped or opened at all, it simply can not be removed from the list despite me telling it to end the task. nothing telling me i cant end it, just unresponsive. The ones i can end are all named daemon (32 bit). a bit strange, but its not that big of a deal to me as it is not visibly affecting my laptop.

i wanted to thank you for taking the time to help me in my predicament, i am determined to play this game even if it kills me. if there is any info i can give you to help you solve the problem let me know with some basic instructions.

To run from command line:
  • Open Start Menu
  • Type in "cmd.exe" into the search box. "Command Prompt" should pop up or just "cmd.exe"
  • Navigate to where you put the game. If you tell me where you put the game, I can give you commands to get there.
    Basically, you just type "cd <folder name>" until you get to where the game is. For instance, if the game is in C:\Users\Ishq\Documents\Unvanquished, you would type

    Code: Select all

    c:
    cd "Users\Ishq\Documents\Unvanquished"
  • Type "daemon.exe" There will hopefully be a whole bunch of output.
  • Copy that output. (Right click the terminal and click "Mark". Drag up until all the output is selected. That should also copy it to the clipboard.
  • Post the text here.

Let me know if I can be more specific anywhere.

That's what I wanted. Additionally, could you run

Code: Select all

dir /s
inside the folder with daemon.exe and paste the output? I need to make sure your setup is correct.

Wow, what's happening? first time I see that! :bugeyes:
Which broken tool did that? :bugeyes:

all the .pk3 files must be in a directory named "pkg"

So you must get something like that:

So, create a directory named "pkg" inside "New folder", move all .pk3 files in.
You can safely remove the useless "win32" directory.
Then just clic on "daemon.exe".

Yep. You can also try our experimental updater. http://unvanquished.net/~modi/UnvUpdaterWin_20150916.zip

The experimental updater should automagically download the necessary files (and then incrementally download only changed stuff). Should generally work.
