Followed instructions/still cant start up server/need help

Post by adamalden » Fri Aug 24, 2012 6:46 am

I've extracted the files to c:\cvsdistro\pol to make it easier and made sure the ecompile.cfg was a cfg and not an example. I went through the following steps which were found in the read me file. The distro and core are both 099.

1. Extract the core files and the distro files.

2. Update ecompile.cfg and pol.cfg

3. Run ecompile.exe found in scripts folder

4. go back or open starthere.bat and select option b and then d to compile all scripts.

5. open starthere.bat and select option a and then o to copy needed files from uo folder.

6. While in option a use option j to convert the muls

7. While in option a use option d to convert the muls
------------------------------------------

The server should be ready to run after following these steps right?

Im getting a lot of errors when compiling the map files tiles.cfg ect saying there are illegal tiles.

when trying to run the sever it gets all the way to

"checkpoint: load_tiles_cfg"

The error I have is the following.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
checkpoint: load_tiles_cfg
Error reading configuration file config/tiles.cfg:
Expected '}' on a blank line after element properties
Near line: 9569
Element started on line: 9567
Server Shutdown: load_tiles_cfg
Execution aborted due to: Configuration file error.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I went into tiles.cfg with notepad++ and noticed that there are a lot of special characters with black background and white font that say "sub" or some other 1-3 letter combonation located in the top line of about 100 tiles.

Im running on windows 7 64bit on a 6core motherboard.

For client and files version prior to HSA expansion use uoconvert.cfg option set to:

Code: Select all

ClientOptions
{
	UseNewHSAFormat	0
}
After change run uoconvert again.

It didn't work.

I'm using client version 7.0.15.1 (patch 51)

I want to get it working with the third dawn client if possible.

edit -
------
And i went into developer docs and searched for those bits of code and found nothing so I think that this code does nothing but I dont know much about this program or its code. dont know how to code either.

Depends on which pol 099 version you're using. That 099 on pol www is a bit old and rusty. You should compile latest from svn it supports client versions > 7.x
