Sync Error Detected

Post by NewAgeOfPower » Sat Jan 02, 2016 8:47 am

So I made an SOTS Mod, shared it with a friend, and we were able to play.

Over the next two months, I rebalanced the mod, then had him delete the old mod folder, shared new mod, and tried to start a new game - turn 2, Sync Error Detected.

Tried redeleting-remaking the folder, restarting computer, downloading the same zip from the same dropbox, emailing... Same thing. Every time.

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster,
And treat those two impostors just the same;

So, sounds like either the old mod was not 100% deleted on BOTH computers, or the new mod was not 100% installed the SAME on both computers. Either way, here is a good way to resolve the issue.

1) Uninstall SotS on both computers.
2) Make sure all folders associated with SotS are DELETED.
3) Perform a clean install.
4) Install new mod, double checking that both computers are 100% IDENTICAL.

This should resolve the issue. :)
