[r20461b] Crash when trying to start the game - WORKAROUND

Post by Furbl » Thu Apr 05, 2012 6:30 am

Ok just downloaded the patch and i cant start the game since it crashes right away im assuming it has something to do with the following line from the log

SW 04/05/2012 08:26:27 [] System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Failed to create stream.

well ill attach the logs too

Yup, we understand. We're implementing localization for non-English speakers, and something isn't initializing right - I apologize for the trouble, but it is a priority fix now, and we'll sort it ASAP

You can change localization back to english in steam. This way it maybe works!?

i can confirm it is the localisation (though i never knew i used one.)
deleting //sotsII/assets/base/locale/de and //sotsII/assets/base/locale/ru made the game start for me.

Can confirm it both,
the silent crash as well as the working workaround

Whatever I'm planning to play only in English localization and I will do this workaround even when localization will work properly.

Whatever, that assumes we're not working to make that an option, seeing as we know there are a lot of regional players that prefer the English.

weird for me. i'm not a russian nor do i live there. but i had EN and RU in the localisation folder. deleting the RU folder did not work. deleted EN folder too just to test but didn't help.

workaround doesn't work for me... can't play the game :(

If you are having trouble starting the game but are not using the Russian or German localization, you are going to want to look at this thread: fresh install of windows, sotsII no longer loads.

ok just downloaded the new patch and forgot to put the files back where they belong ... result:
the game wont start correctly

putting the files back after the patch does not work and if they are missing the patch does not add them

i'm now reinstalling the game to see if it was realy my fault or if the patch broke it

[EDIT]
mh it seams it was the patch and not me

I also have the same problem, running a swedish OS. However, as there was no locale\sv\ directory, I just created it and copied the files from the \en directory. This allows me to start the game.
