Core.lvl is ONE KB! Need help!

Postby Omega_007 » Sun Aug 10, 2008 8:07 am

I munged a map, checking the english.cfg(or uk_englich.cfg, it depends) was in the right place(Localise in Common within data_%%%); I munged the map and when I investigated the folder of the map I found the core.lvl was only 1 KB in size, has anyone experienced this and any ideas on what to do?

It doesn't depend on anything. You should have all the different language config files there. All of them should be munged together.

Did you have any munge errors? How big are your cfg files? What is in your core.req?

Are you munging the Common folder? It's been a while, but I believe just munging Localize doesn't actually do anything, or somesuch.

I cant remember as regards the errors, I think I mayve gotten 1 or 2; the content of the 1 KB core.lvl was what's below plus some hex trimmings(using PSPad to open it), because in it is pretty well what's in core.req:

ucft
{
REQN
{
"loc"
"english"
"spanish"
"italian"
"french"
"german"
"uk_english"
}
}


CGF files are all over 1 MB except for comments, japanese and spanish(those CGFs within Localise that is), I expect the ones within Localise/PC don't matter much; localise.req within Localise has the same as quoted for core.req, I hope SOMETHING can be done.

MercuryNoodles is right that Localize doesn't munge a core.lvl. I though a plain munge munged it, but I could be wrong. Try it with Common checked.

But even before that, if you had a munge error, then you can assume your entire map is broken. If there was an error, then VisualMunge failed to correctly create all your lvls. You should do a manual clean, then munge Common and see what happens. If you get any munge errors, fix them before continuing.

Your req files are fine.

Fix the Errors how? Manually clean how?

I already munged with Common checked, but not with it unchecked.

Check the Modding FAQ topic (also called the 'Everything You Need To Know Thread') for info on how to do a manual clean. As for fixing the errors, I can't tell you how to do that without knowing what they are. Do the manual clean, then re-munge with Common check. Make a note of any errors that show up again.

Righto.

Just so you know, I munged with all those boxes checked and there's no change in core.lvl.

I said only to check Common. Nothing else should have been selected/checked.

Create a new map, start VisualMunge, check Common, press Munge. In the Munge Output, at some point you should see:

If the core.lvl in the data_XXX/_LVL_PC folder of your new map is still too small you need to uninstall then reinstall the mod tools (backup your existing mod maps first).

Do a manual clean and then munge again. I've seen that error before and I'm not sure what it means, but manual cleans always fix it for me.

Assuming the manual clean doesn't work, do a search on your entire computer for a file named xcopy. I'm guessing your PATH environment variable some how got messed up. I'm not on a Windows machine right now, so I can't tell you where its supposed to be. If that is the problem, it is solvable.

Sorry for the bump cause I've been busy, I found 4 xcopy programs, one's in C:\Windows\system32, they're all in the Windows folder anyway.

Any ideas anyone?
