Maybe I'm stating the obvious since I haven't seen that pattern before, but isn't that jump pack kind of huge? Like, even by 40k standards?
I can GUARANTEE you the UA patches are malware-free.
Malware Bytes in particular (as in, it's the ONE antivirus that does this) flags the UA patches as malware, but that's been happening since the first UA patch for THB. It's all false positives, you can be sure of it.
To be on the safe side, here's the MD5 hash for Ultimate_Apocalypse_-_THB_Patch_v1.81.29.exe, the latest as of now:
You can use a hash checking app to make sure you DO have the patch I'm talking about and not something else with the same filename (or a damaged download).
Apparently there was a problem uploading the 1.81.29 patch to ModDB. It has been re-uploaded, but now It has to go through moderator approval and all that stuff. In the meantime, here are other download mirrors for the 1.81.29 patch:
I said I don't know, I sure can't just randomly lucky guess the problem. If I had pretty much every variable of information from your end I might be able to work something out, but relaying that much info not very plausible.
What I can tell is you didn't read the FAQ:
"Q: X thing doesn't work. Should I uninstall [other mod]?
A: No. Dawn of War mods load as modular, separate components, they do not interfere with each other."
1 subscriber away from the fabled 1000, from what I can tell.
Yup, just confirmed this on my end, too. It appears they done goofed.
In the case someone with SOME programming knowledge is for some reason reading comments here: Running Soulstorm directly from the executable barfs up an error about an incorrect side-by-side configuration and using the Event Viewer and sxstrace.exe "for more detail".
I've been using computers since I was 5 years old, and this is a new one xD
So, just to confirm, do you have all three Tyranid, Daemons and Inquisition mods available for selection from the Game Manager on Soulstorm's Main Menu?
If any of them is missing, New Factions won't be able to function.
Assuming you have non-Steam Soulstorm, take that last "Dawn of War Soulstorm" from your install path and THEN reinstall the patch.
Just to be as clear as possible, install to "/Program Files (x86)/THQ/Dawn of War - Soulstorm/".
Or of course, leave the path to the installer's default. It'll automatically detect where your Soulstorm game is installed and extract the patch there.
First off: WHERE are you downloading it from? The 1.81.0 patch isn't released yet.
And secondly, the changelog is placed on your Soulstorm directory when you install the release, next to the UA mod itself. UA always followed this format afaik.
Doubtful. If anything a router configuration issue is more likely, specially since you're both connected to the internet through the same router.
Still, if you DO have everything set up as instructed on this FAQ, I... don't know.
Try with other, "simpler" mods (something that doesn't combine so many other mods in it) and also the vanilla game to discard/confirm you can even play Soulstorm online to begin with, and... good luck?
I'll copypasta a bit from the FAQ since you didn't clarify that detail:
"Q: I can't see my friends' games in multiplayer/they can't see mine. How to fix?
A: This may be caused by a disparity on players running/not running Soulstorm from the NTCore-modified executable. Make sure all players run Soulstorm from either the modified or vanilla .exe.
Also, this can also be caused by some players running New Factions and others the core mod. This must also match across players."
While on it, you're in the *same room* within the online lobby, right? Might add that to the FAQ.
Dang it! Was busy with rl yesterday and forgot to post this I.imgur.com like, at all.
Well, better late than never.
But... you are the Queen of ModDB.
Also, very much glad to see you back 'round here, welcome back :)
P.S.: for the sake of clearing out doubts, I'm that Heavy Metal Bread Loaf, and previously Rocket Banana guy, I change my username & icon once every several months.
I'll GUESS the Mission Editor included with the "standard" DoW mod tools. I know next to nothing on DoW map editing however, so I might be mistaken.
Sorry for the late reply, been busy with techie stuff irl xP
I like your user icon btw.
Updated yet again with a new MD5 hash checking system on "Is there a way to know for certain if X file downloaded correctly?"
Then do tell *where* such mark-specific superweapons are mentioned. I sure never heard of 'em :P
Don't get me wrong, mark specific superweapons would be pretty dang awesome, but if that's going to be in UA, the rest of the team didn't tell me xD
Also forgot to clarify this: You COULD use the Fan Made Addons with THB (by doing some .module edits), but I'm guessing most stuff won't really work as intended, so... yeah short answer would be: "no".
The Fan Made Addons are as their name implies, made by the fans of the UA mod (not the UA team). So they'll be updated to THB as their respective creators update them.
Updated with EASIER THAN EVER mod setup instructions! Now *everything* (even the separate race mods for New Factions) comes in hard-to-mess-up-Pattern installers!
Normally my answer would be "FullMetal Alchemist" :B
But I think he meant the Fan Made Addons.
Oh man, that's dark.
Bootlegs, ladies and gentlemen!
Which win conditions are you using? If you mix too many of them that may also cause a fatal scar error.
Also, which races did you play as? If using a custom map, indicate the map as well.
But... you didn't even tell me which mod you're trying to load (assuming it's UA, I can't know if it's New Factions of the base mod). So... here goes some general troubleshooting!
To run THB - New Factions, you also need the respective factions' race mods. These being:
- Inquisition: Filesmelt.com or Mega.co.nz or Mediafire.com
- Daemons (now also with installer!): Gamefront.com or Mediafire.com or Drive.google.com or Mega.nz
- Tyranids: Moddb.com
If your problem wasn't on New Factions, I'll need you to send me a log file from your end. To do so:
- Launch Soulstorm, try loading THB (triggering the error), then close Soulstorm.
- Navigate to your Soulstorm directory, and locate a file named "Warnings.log"
- Open it with notepad, copy all of its contents and paste them in Pastebin.com
- When done, link your results back here.
Also check out the *updated* UA FAQ: Moddb.com
Thing is we aren't the devs of Legio Titanicus for UA, your question would be better placed here --> Moddb.com
OK, I'll need less generic information then:
-If main menu, which race's commander was on screen?
-If it was a New Factions' specific commander (Tyranid, Inquisition, Daemons), try with reinstalling that specific race mod. You can check your mod setup data integrity by following the instruction under "Is there a way to know for certain if X file downloaded correctly?" on the FAQ: Moddb.com
Also, you might be interested on this news titled "uTorrent Quietly Installs Cryptocurrency Miner" Torrentfreak.com
Personally I recomment qBittorrent: Qbittorrent.org
Don't worry, when I see a pastebin link, I usually just click it and make my diagnosis from that :p
So I saw you could indeed can run THB but not New Factions. It also says
MOD Manager -- Unable to find required MOD 'Daemons'!
so I was like "well there's your problem right there!"
But yeah, if you did install the Daemons mod, this means it at least isn't on your Soulstorm directory.
99.98% sure that's your download that got corrupted, resulting on a damaged installer (and installed data).
Re-download and re-install UA THB. No need to reinstall the base game or other mods btw.
Ah, it was one of them nasty crashes that don't even leave log entries, then? D:
In that case, what we can do is a mod reinstall, BUT being very, very thorough.
First, install Objective Points. Overwrite if required Mediafire.com
This way, you can test the Inquisition, Tyranid and Daemons mods individually to see if they launch correctly.
If any of them doesn't, reinstall it following the same steps as instructed for UA below.
MANUALLY uninstall UA. As is delete any folder and .module with "UltimateApocalypse" on its name.
Before installing, check all files' data integrity as instructed on "Is there a way to know for certain if X file downloaded correctly?" in the FAQ. Any file that fails this check must be re-downloaded.
Then install again.
Once all Inquisition, Daemons, Tyranids and UA are installed this way, faulty mod setup can be discarded from causes for it to not launch.
If you still can't load New Factions, try a game cache verification (assuming you've got Soulstorm on Steam). It's like reinstalling practice-wise, but MUCH faster. Steam Library > Soulstorm Properties (R-click) > Local Files tab > Verify Integrity of Game Cache.
If you STILL can't load New Factions, either you did not follow these instructions or (much worse), we might be looking at a bad hard drive sector.
A way to know how your hard drive's doing, is using an app that gives your drive's S.M.A.R.T. data. Defraggler is a hard drive defragmenter, but has a very user-friendly drive "health" tab, including S.M.A.R.T.: Softpedia.com
Reference: En.wikipedia.org You don't need to understand ALL of that, just that if your drive has a value higher than 0 on any of the rows on red... that's bad news.
To help you further than this, I'd have to install New Factions & required mods on your comp myself :P
You're missing the Daemons mod. Download links for it on the FAQ and below:
Mediafire.com or Mega.co.nz or Moddb.com
Make sure you also have the Inquisition and Tyranid mods to launch New Factions.
Bad news is I was indeed super tired last night and forgot to set the uploads.
Good news is the link Jyhor52 posted is for the exact same file I was going to upload. I'll post it as well just in case Docs.google.com
