  • Ok let me see if I get this straight.
    In "scenario.csv" from the Bragg and Rosecrans scenarios DRIL_LVL3_CAV_COLUMN was changed to DRIL_LVL4_CAV_COLUMN
    BOTH in line 472 and 982 of column N?

    If corrected, this should fix the crash.

    BUT, If it is LvL3 or LvL4 on my system I get NO crash at all. Weird!!!


    Yes, it was Lvl3 in both of the scenario.csv files on the lines and column mentioned above..

    Yes, weird !

    Fantastic....Success....Missed the Line 472 in Bragg.....Thank to all you guys, this was a fun exercise, and I have learned some much related to troubleshooting this particular type of issue.....If needed, I'll review the BR files when I have time, most of them displayed same error.

    Another thanks Mark.....Great job.

    I looked at a few scenarios in the Bull Run Campaign and found or notice the following:
    Again, I'm operating with XP and only a few mods were on.

    BR-11: Line 4 of the scenario file was a 3, changed to 4 and had success.
    BR-03 and BR-04: Both failed. Possible reasons in Log were 1) ID Not Found, 2) Graphics not Found, and Battle script Errors.

    thanks,
    reb

    I looked at the two scenarios of Murfreesboro Campaign, Summer and Winter, and found the following:
    In Scenario File, Changed the following LVL3's to LVL4's and had success: Line 4, 118, 208, 321, 419.
    Both scenarios are Federal Armies....booo.....where's the good guys at? just kidding.

    To all,
    As I have stated multiple times, with regrets I have added the OOBs from other people, downloaded from this sight. They are mostly junk.

    I will try to be more complete in my release oob.
    Chickamauga and Chattanooga will be better.

    I reiterate..:
    Since I know LVL3 does not exist, and the Master OOBs do not contain LVL3, and you copy and paste from master OOB to create scenario.csv,

    Where did the LVL3 text string magically appear from?
    I most certainly did not put it there. And if it is not in the Master OOB, how is it generated?

    As I recall, this has happened before.

    This some good stuff - thank you MarkT and the others that helped. I'm playing the BR01 scenario and it's unfolding rather close to the actual battle.

    However I seem to be missing the famous "Stone House" building at the crossroads - am I missing something? I have all the modules except Pipe Creek. I also would have liked to see the stone bridge at Bull Run but I figured there was not enough vertical relief at this crossing?

    Anyway, these are fun, thanks again. Looking forward to more.

  • Hey simovitch,

    I see in the sowgb.log that there was an error loading a sprite, Henry Hill House :

    Chamberlain

    Chamberlain, so interestingly enough in the scenario, Henry House Hill on the minimap and the objective marker on the main map both are named "NOT FOUND" :side:

    Also, I found the Stone House in place on the previous "Manassas" map but it's gone on this new one.

    EDIT: I fixed both problems by editing the maplocations.csv file. Hmmm my first mod! :woohoo:

    These errors are because you do not own the add-on that the house model is taken from. You get the error but the game will still load but you'll get no model depicted at the location of the house(s) in question.

    Solution: Buy the add-ons! :P

  • I have all of the add-ons from day 1... lol lol :)

    This Henry Hill House was in the bull run map so it would not appear in the Chancellorsville add-on.

    I do see that even with the error in the log, Henry Hill House appears in the Bull Run scenarios in the mod. Maybe it is just an erroneous message but the sprite still appears...

    I have all the modules except pipe creek. And just to be clear, the Henry House itself appears on my map, but the objective sprite at that location was called "not found". I can only imagine that anyone who opens BR1 would see the same thing I see.

    Either way, I downloaded the SDK and figured out the problem and now I can see the Stone House at the crossroads and the Henry House objective is called "Henry House Hill".

  • Hey simovitch,

    I was also able to figure it out after going through the SDK and now Henry House Hill is appearing at the Objective ... Thanks for the point in the right direction !

    The Chickamauga map has now been updated. 3/8/2016

    Fixed a couple of roads, and changed some trees to match the upcoming two Chattanooga maps.

    A thousand thanks, Mark. Absolutely beautiful maps. Can hardly wait for Chattanooga. I just finished reading 'Shipwreck of Their Hopes' and looking forward to trying my hand at it. Are you doing any scenarios?

    Cheers!

    None of these links work now. Is there a new link for any of Tewes' maps?

    IIRC Mark used his personal Dropbox account. If NSD could host them on their own filespace that would be a great help.

  • Hey guys,

    I know this Bull Run Campaign has been out awhile but I am having a problem with BR04-Manassas July21-1st 1861 (Rebel Army What If) - where it stops after hitting the space bar to continue.

    In my log it shows :

    Graphic not found GFX_Bracken_A_6

    Battlescript ERROR - unit I_MCDOWELL not found.

    I have tried a few things but I still cannot figure out where the error is.

    Is anyone else have this error in BR04

    Any help would be appreciated as I have checked all files and not sure what to fix..

    Thanks

    Think the battlescript error is linked to the ID_Name differing between the OOB/scenario.csv and battlescript.csv.

    Try altering all the refs in Col B of battlescript.csv from I_McDowell to I_McDowell_in_Field

    See if that works.

    That worked... ;) ;)

    I checked my log and have no errors at all but still, when I hit the space bar, it craps out...with the 'stopped working'

    All other Bull Run scenarios in this Mod are fine, no problems, only this BR04...
