Strange Error
« on: April 24, 2012, 04:56:52 PM »
Dear Wadjet Eye Games,

When I try to load the game, I get this odd error:

You must create and save a game first in the AGS Editor before you can use this engine.

If you have just downloaded AGS, you are probably running the wrong executable.
Run AGSEditor.exe to launch the editor.

(Unable to find 'ac2game.dat' in c:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\puzzle bots)

I find this error very odd, since the file it says it cannot find, is indeed, right there. I have also verified the game cache, so I believe it downloaded fine. It seems to be asking for the editor for some reason, and not trying to play the game. Anyways, thank you for your help in advance.

That's extraordinarily odd! I wonder if it's a Steam issue. If you like, I can give you a copy of the non-Steam version and we can see if that one works. Email me and I'll give you a coupon code.

It was very odd, but Steam downloaded a bit more today after a restart, and the game works fine now. Thanks for the help!
