Impossible to install The Era of Myth

Post by Killiran »

I've downloaded from the add-on server multiples other Era (extended, imperial, magic, etc.)
But this one is impossible to install. i always get the same error:
"error general: There was a problem creating the files necessary to install this add-on."

PS: the game is installed on the drive G.
Maybe that's what generating the error "WARNING: setlocale() failed for 'C'."
But then, why only this add-on, and no other?

C is a POSIX term meaning default language locale (in human speak C = en_US) so it has nothing to do with the fact.

You can run wesnoth from command line with --log-debug=all switch and post last few dozen lines of stderr.txt after atempting to install EoM again.
It's very likely though that EoM maintainer made some sort of error when uploading latest version.

If you need the complete file, i uploaded it here:

I checked my folders, and strangely the files are here, but the add-on is not available, and if i select Advanced Era + Era of Myth + default, i can't see any icons for the Myth races.

Yep. That's the thing. And the error is maintainers fault and as such it's his to fix.

And as a piece of advice, when uploading large textfile in future, use some sort of pastebin, like http://pastebin.com/ rapidshare is just plain uncomfortable to work with.

Re: Impossible to install The Era of Myth

Post by Awen »

background.. over a week ago i installed all the addons in the list.

im also getting an out of synch error when i try to load (watch or play) a 3 player multiplayer game against one opposition on the following...

Extended Era + Era of Myths + Default

3p - Orocia RandomMod

At first i got the error immediately after i saw the map for the first time. i was told to download "Era of Magic" which i did and i joined the game again.. this time i managed to complete my first turn of buying units and moving them, then when i ended turn at the moment it was anothers turn i got the same out of synch error.

i have also noticed that some of the Era of Myths units do not have a picture to them and appear like a ghostly image instead. are they supposed to be like that? (unfinished).

I also updated to the latest version of "Extended MP Era" - im not sure if i needed to.

I cant think of any other addons i would need to update.. can you? although i dont know what addon the Orocia map comes on, perhaps i need to update that?

So perhaps it is the Era of Myths addon that is out of synch? maybe others managed to download a newer version of that without problems but some people are stuck on the old ones.

any other ideas what could be the problem?

thanks

As I said.
It's a maintainers fault.
There is nothing you can do to fix it.
Wait till it's fixed.
Posting here will not hurry this process.

I'm sorry about the bug, but I honustly have no idea what I did to cause it or how to fix it.

In my .wesnoth, all directories are 0750 and all files are 0644, including those of EoM. If you know what the problem is, would you like to tell us?

@AI: I don't know what you are talking about.

I use a mac, incase that makes any diffrence. It looks like the problem has something to do with accsess permission, but I don't remember doing anything since last time I uploaded that would change anything like that. When I uploaded Delta 1 it worked just fine.

EDIT: My resident cumputer expert told me something to try, I'm going to upload it to try again, could someone download it again to see if it works this time.

EDIT: Anyone who read that message within 2 minutes of it being posted, and downloaded it please try again, when I modified permissions I did it to the wrong folder and had to modify it again, and upload it again.
