Problem with missions
« on: June 25, 2006, 03:28:39 am »
Hi all,

Downloaded the full install version of the game tonight, and all was goin well....

That was untill i attempted my 1st mission, and all i got was a black screen. I have no problems with any other part of the game, but when i check the console it says my username is  "overflowing". Any ideas?

Read elsewhere on this forum that i need to compile my maps, but i dont get any of the errors that the others do, apart from this overflowing thingy. Im not that hot on coding, so any help put into lamens terms would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Moochoo

Not that I'm able to help, but what exactly did you download?

if you downloaded the installer you don't need to compile your maps. the compiled versions are included in the installer.

username overflow. well what is your username? what is your os? which version of the installer did you download? and please send the last lines from ufoai\base\ufoconsole.log

best regards
martin

Right, it seems if i simplify the equipment of my squad, the maps load no problems.

Just for reference, my user name is Moochoo_uk, and my OS is Windows XP home SP2 and i downloaded ver 0.12beta from this site (is there a patch i need to download?).

What im after now, is some sort of controls manual, i know this is me being noobish now, but are they the same as the original UFO game? as i still have the manual for that.

Any help is appreciated, and i understand if im not quite up to speed with things and you dont have time to explain all this to some one as bad with source code as me :)

have a look here for a newer version:
   http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=157793&package_id=194208

but as this is a release candiate, there will be a lot of errors around. some of them are already fixed - and please before submitting new ones to our tracker look whether the problem is already listened in our tracker.
