Re-Installation issues


#1

So I decided I’d play this game again after what seems like forever, and for some reason, literally every single non-infantry piece of mandatory equipment (armor, shields, engines, weapons, etc) is locked and so is the tutorial. I have the two levels after the tutorial unlocked and the campaign starts on the tutorial so I can still play it anyway, but proceeding is difficult because I can’t make new units because everything is locked. So naturally I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but that didn’t fix anything. I had the same units and levels unlocked as I did before and everything was still locked. How do I completely wipe the game off of the hard drive so it will do a completely fresh installation?


#2

The error is probably the unl.dat file. (Should be in “My Games”, a sub-folder of “My Documents”) It tracks everything that’s unlocked, both parts and scenarios. If it’s there, check what’s inside. (it opens in most text editors, notepad works best.)


#3

I checked what’s inside and attempted to fix it by copying in the unl.dat from a fresh install on another computer, but it keeps overwriting it with the broken one.


#4

What’s inside the broken one? Maybe check if anything interesting is showing up in the debug section.

All I can really suggest for fixes is try deleting the unl.dat and reinstall.
