game will not start
« on: January 01, 2014, 03:08:43 am »
I just downloaded the latest 2.5 dev and installed it. I keep getting this error message when I try to run the game "unknown inventory definition "extension". Aborting in the ufoconsole window. I've tried doing a complete uninstall and reinstall and still nothing.

Any ideas?

Seems like old scripts -- extension was removed (and the implant slot ended in its place IIRC) -- either there are files from an old version still lying around where the game can find them (rare, but has happened), or there is a problem with the installer...

git remove doesn't remove the file from the disk, right ?

Did some searching after a full uninstall and found a ufoai directory appdata/local/ufoai that had some files in it. Deleting it and reinstalling fixed the problem.

git rm: I'll have to check that. At least I have a file here which I personally git rm'ed on another machine...

Maybe you forgot to commit after git rm?

DarkRain, you're right. git rm does remove the file locally. Still not sure what happened on my machines and led me to that false impression...
