The new version won't start up on my pc. I get the following error:


Error while calling Lua function: Main

Reported Error: OGRE EXCEPTION(10:MyGUIException) ComboBox: SetIndexSelected Index Number 8 out of range [8] in MyGUI at \src\MyGUI_ComboBox.cpp (line 327)

this can be fixed by replacing the 8 with a 7 in Server/serverSettings.txt
