Loading incorrect maps.
« on: August 12, 2017, 03:15:08 pm »
Hello guys

Anyone with any insight of how to fix this?

This is Egos: Choix as you can see on top. However, it doesn't load the version you can see while hovering above the planet.

Also, there is no shield key, so Chanson can't be unlocked.

Sorry about the link. Apparently I can't get it to show a dropbox image.

This is the case for all three planets after Lemal.

Imageified.

replace dl=0 with raw=1 for these



dl=0 means nobody can download, only you can do anything with it.
dl=1 means free downloads for all
raw=1 means showing an image

Given that this is CW3, you will need creeperworld3/colonialspace/maps/###/###.cw3
To once take a walk in the Creeper - to build a bridge to the stars.

To me it seems that error in in Arc Eternal campaign, this one seems similar case.

https://knucklecracker.com/forums/index.php?topic=22462.0

Could you check if folder C:\Users\YOURUSER\Documents\creeperworld3\data\sectors\internal\1\story_3

has map files in there, deleting all but system.dat and lemal.cw3 from there might help.

Please ask if there is anything else unclear in this.

The other topic Builder17 points to is probably related and has some thing to try.  When you get a random map like that it is because the game can't load the map from disk and defaults back to a random seed generated map. This is usually permissions related, locked file related, etc.

Hello.

I tried both your suggestion and the suggestion in the topic, as well as completely removing  \1 folder and running the game as admin.

Neither option managed to load the correct mission.

Try this...
Exit the game (close it completely), then rename this directory:
C:\Users\YOURUSER\Documents\creeperworld3

Move/rename the whole thing.  Don't delete it as you will want it back.  Restart the game and play some of the campaign and see if things unlock.
