Game Won't Load

Recommended Posts

I tried a search but couldn't find anything that satisfied my question: when I enable mods and reload the game, it crashes (I'm assuming) to desktop, how come?

 

It's any mod. I've tried using only the most up-to-date mods, those with mod.info files. A black screen popes up with Game in the title bar, then just before it would load PZ proper, it disappears. Nothing further happens.

 

Is it because I'm using the Steam version and I opted into the beta? How do I know which version of PZ I'm running?

 

For now I've removed all mod directories from the loaded file and at least I can play again but would really like to try some mods. So far I tried: Silent Music, Starter Kit, Too Many Items, and the more recent version of zSpawn.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

mods must have have this line in mod.info 

id=ModName 

change ModName for whatever you want,preferably actual mod name.Be sure to try only one mod at once and remove mod from loaded.file if it fail to start.

You can see your PZ version in main menu in rigft bottom corner.

The mods all have that line as far as I can tell.

 

And each mod I've tried causes the failure, all by themselves with no other mods loaded.

 

Mine just says 17 (0014). Not exactly the format I would expect for version numbers based on what I see on the forums.

 

EDIT: Disregard, I guess I was seeing things. None of the mods had that line. What's that all about?

 

Thank you for your help!

Run game through ProjectZomboit32/64.bat file (in PZ root directory) and look which error it throw


The mods all have that line as far as I can tell.

Are you sure?

They don't have id , so they will not work for PZ 2.9.9.17 [0014].You are doing it wrong or you have other sources for this mods.

Its new standard for mods.They must have IDs now so modders can make submods safely,when they add line "required=ID_of_Main_Mod " to their mod.info file.This way user cant enable submod if he dont have all parts and it will prevent game for loading and crashing.

Also it can prevent conflicts between mods.At least i see that this way.

I have Posters saved as .png

 

The game will not load at all it locks at boot no text just a black screen i run it off the 32bit batch and 64bit batch and no debugger loads. This also happens if i add the files directly to the Scripts and Lua directory in the pz install.

It could be nice if you upload mods so we can check problem.Also check your items.txt and recipes if its closed properly.like

(item{blablabla}item2{blablabla})   --do you have this?
