Level Editor Crashing.

Postby trance » Tue Dec 26, 2006 11:23 pm

Hi, I just recently got the level editor along with the sample mod and all that stuff. I installed them both but for some reason when i try to open the template file in the "mymod/data/save...etc" folder it takes a few seconds loading, but then it crashes the editor. Was wondering if anyone could help me out with this problem. Thanks

Do you have a mod loaded in the launcher? You can use the example mod.

Yeah I'd suspect this as well. Make sure there's a mod selected in the Launcher...

Im kind of confused, im not sure what the launcher has to do with the "Editor" ?

The thing is that i was following the tutorial on the website on how to use the editor, but when i try to open "mission_example1" or "mission_template" it crashes the Editor. So i havent been able to work on it.

It's not a perfect system so the Editor actually checks for a file that the Launcher creates...

Open the Launcher, and check that there is "Sample mod" or something else than "No Mod Selected" in the box. See picture:

If you don't have a mod selected, the Editor will try to look for the Editor files in the root directory (i.e. Shadowgrounds\Editor). With a mod selected it will look for the files in the mod directory.

Hope this helps.
