Thread: Cant start DD after using Editor

  1. #1

    Cant start DD after using Editor

    Each time I use the editor I get this error message
    when starting DD

    ERROR in language file, token 'HEARTS OF IRON! Doomsday'

    If I reload DD it will run fine.

    But as soon as I use the editor for anything I get this error message.

    I am using an unlocked Demo download upgraded to 1.1

    Same thing happened to me -- must be something with the editor

    I reported the bug, so let's see what response we get.

    If you keep hitting ignore the game loads; but then after you choose single player and load a scenario it crashes during the game loading screen.

    Too bad, as I really excited to play with myself and some friends are Leaders I edited in!

    -- Note -- I emailed this twice to the email address above, hoi2bugs@paradoxplaza.com, and both were bounced back as failure notices from mailer daemon. I followed the directions on the sticky thread.

    Was wondering if something is wrong with that email address?

    Email I sent:

    Hi,

    I have the patched version of DD and I have a problem
    after using the editor. I'm sure others have reported
    this as well, was wondering what the solution was?

    I edited Argentina, Germany, Italy, and Siam. Edited
    some Argentinian leader names, added some leaders and
    ministers, gave IC and other additions to that country
    as well as Italy and Germany, and then saved
    everything.

    After I saved them all, I tried to open up DD but got
    this message: "Error language in language file, token
    Hearts of Iron! Doomsday' Do you still want to
    continue? (Abort, retry, ignore)

    When I hit ignore the game had another error screen
    and crashed; but when I hit ignore the game loading
    screen came up.

    I then chose to load the 1936 scenario single player
    -- the game started loading after I chose Argentina.
    About a quarter of the way through the game loading
    screen this message came up:

    -- Error : (Country: Unexpected Field0' date = { line
    = 39 file = scenarios) 1936/(NOTE Backslash is foward
    slash, my keyboard isn't working well)aut_36.inc ---
    Do you still want to continue? (Abort, retry, ignore)

    I hit ignore then it crashed totally back to desktop.

    Was wondering what the problem is? What kind of bug is
    causing that? I didn't set anything too crazy -- I
    gave 30000 resources in oil, money, and other
    resources to Ireland and Siam, as well as Argentina.
    Changed the IC, TC, and added nation leaders, tech
    teams, but nothing that seemed outrageous enough for
    it to crash.

    Thank you in advance, best,
    Joe

    And me.I'm pissed of about the lack of any info of how the editor works.Look at the recently released demo of Strategiccommand2.The Battlefront forum has a pdf manual that goes into great depth about the editor in that game.Why the hell has Paradox not given us info on how the bloody thing works.

    Paradox DL this and learn.

    The editor is quite self-explanatory if you muck about with it for half an hour.

    Ok thank you -- I will try emailing again now.

    I am upset that I spent so much time and effort using the editor, only to discover that it doesn't work!

    Sometimes people just need to hear it though.
    Let's them know someone is listening.

    I'm just venting, don't mind me; I am incredibly annoyed right now. It's been DAYS and still no word. I want to play this game, so do others with this problem. I paid for this game, so did others. The lack of any kind of customer support is appalling. I'd at least appreciate an e-mail ackknowledging they recieved mine, but no

    Ok, that's me done.

    Well to be fair you can play the game just not use the editor.

    But I feel your pain, I will see what I can do.

    Uh... try the opposite. I can use the editor but not play the game. Why do you think I'm so pissed off?

    Okay, thanks. I'll play HoI2 classic until then

    It was my understanding that you could play Doomsday, it was just that when you edited the game files with the editor that you could not play the edited game?

    That is what I meant by being able to play the game, but not use the editor.
