Maybe it is a problem with Egoboo not clearing the import folder?

[quote=flazam]Ok there is no extra players folder and I already have put the save games in the application data, yet something is deleting everything in my chracters data[/quote]

This is the normal way of dealing with character data.

When you import, the character \players\blah.obj is uploaded into \imports\tmp000.obj, the left hand item to \imports001.obj, and so on.

Any modifications to the character objects is done to these tmp directories.

When you go to export the characters, the original directory \players\blah.obj is erased and the new data is exported to that folder.

Seems like something is happening after the directory is erased....

[quote=flazam]EDIT there also seems to be a folder that creates itself after importing my characters and playing them. I only notice the folder, mp_import after my player crashes.[/quote]

the mp_import folder is there because the exporting of quest.txt files has an error that I have not been able to crack yet.

OK, so there is an deleting everything in data is normal- if I get what you're saying- but why is it making it unplayable for me?

Hello everyone,

Everytime I try to load a character by clicking on the player I get a fatal error message like flazam mentioned... (There are not enough: 's in file! mp_players/felel.obj/data.txt).

I tried solving the problem as follows:

I downloaded Egoboo 2.8.0 Stable Version and installed it. Because of the above Problem I installed the SVN Build Revision 1144 (As mentioned on the first page). That didn't help. After starting a new game I experienced the same problem. So I tried to install the latest SVN Build (Revision 1166 - 06.08.2010) which also didn't help.
After looking into the Application Data\players folder I noticed that the "data.txt" in every character.obj and also the "data.txt" files in the inventory of the player are completely empty.

After beating the Elf starter module the game creates two folders in the application Data folder. "import" and "players". The "import" folder is completely empty. The "players" folder contains my new player.obj with the empty "data.txt". Ingame I get to the screen where I can select my new created player. And when clicking on it I get the previous mentionend error. After clicking on "OK" the import folder gets deleted and my players.obj folder still contains an empy data.txt.

Are there any workarounds for this?
Also I don't get any "mp_import" folder?

Thanks for the help

mp_import = import in the application data folder

the export bug still seems to be in effect :?

It seems data.txt isn't being copied correctly. I wonder why and when this happened?

This is a critical bug and should be our top priority to fix at the moment.

you might not be closing the file handle thingy, I haven't checked, but if this is true, it should be easy to fix.

Hopefully it will be that simple :)

I just fixed saving audio options causing the game to crash, this was due a heap stack error caused by a internal bug from SDL_Mixer. I had to revert to a older version of SDL_Mixer seeing as I do not have mercurial. Linux users shouldn't have noticed any of it! :D

Just to confirm, Today I also installed the 2.8.0 stable version, and I am having the exact same problem as Khaos89, my system is Windows 7 64 bit, if that even matters..
I eagerly await the fix/solution for this problem so that I can continue playing.

On a positive note, you guys are doing great on this game, we all appreciate the time and effort you put into it.

Thanks! I am working towards a solution, but the list of bugs is pretty big! Next is the exporting bug which is causing all the uproar around the forums these times. ;)
