So… long story short…decided to learn some new programming skills… played the demo of Kudos2, Democracy and GSB with a view to purchasing.
Read loads on here as well.
Decided on Kudos 2… older game… simpler for a “rookie” like me to try and understand how its put together.
Bought, Paid for, downloaded, installed… yesterday. (vers 1.9 I believe)
Played for several hours on a Windows 7 HP laptop. Absolutely no issues… All worked fine.
So today… attempted my first simple mod…again, no issues… to my amazement it worked.
Carried on for a while modding this and that… got myself in a pickle and ruined the CSV I was working on at the time.
Thought I would save time and effort and just recopy the CSV file new and start over.
Did this…game now crashes.
Deinstalled and reinstalled… same crash
Deinstalled and reisntalled demo… same crash
Deisnatlled and reinstalled bought copy… same crash
All over the above again with deleting the config files and saved games from the my docs saved games area… same crash.
restored my system to prior to the crashes occuring…
Then reinstalled the lot again… same crash…
So… I am seriously stumped as to why everything worked just fine and then didnt… and why a clean fresh install wont fix the problem.
Error message is:- “Missing Global variable:…\src\SIM_GlobalVariables.cpp 40” or similar every time.
It happens when you do one of threee things.
1:) Start the tuturial
2:) Try and retore last saved game (when there was one, prior to me removing those files.)
3:) Just after character creation right after the “It was my 20th Birthday message” when you hit the button to continue.
Any ideas… anyone?
I am settled in with a beer and planned to play abit more with the modding aspects… but atm I have a broken “fresh” game that wont play out the box… let alone after i have screwed it up!
P.s. Great games btw… all of the ones I have seen thus far.
