Game crash in Metropol
« on: December 13, 2012, 11:55:08 AM »
Hello,

I’d like to report a problem;
after a few  minutes of gameplay in Metropol, I always receive an error-message:

Quote
Adventure Game Studio

An error has occurred. Please contact the game autor for support, as this is likely to be a scripting error and not a bug in AGS. (ACI version 3.21.1115)
in “PlayHint.asc”,line 2111
from “PlayHint.asc”, line 2763
from “PlayHint.asc”, line 3106
from “NewCommands.asc”, line 7699
Error: FaceCharacter: characters are in different rooms
I'm running WinXP (32-bit) on an Intel dual CPU (1,60 GHz) with 2 GB RAM.
Please help.

-Blue

Very bizarre.  This is an old glitch -- and in that sense known, but one which we thought was resolved in beta.  Are you playing a WEG direct download, a GOG version, or a Steam version?  (Or, dare I ask, one from "some other source"?)

After pre-ordering the game, I received a mail from "BMT Micro Orders" with 3 download-links (= WEG direct download). I simply picked the first link and downloaded the game. The game worked well until Metropol...

Yes, this is a Metropol-specific glitch.  But it's supposed to be resolved, and I haven't heard anyone else complaining of it.  Out of curiosity, when did you download it?

Date of Download is Dec. the 6th...

*edit*
I tried the second link to download the setup-exe. After re-installation the game seems to work.
Probably the download-link, I used in first place, still contains an "older" version of the game.

Excellent!  Let us know if it crops up again and we'll try stronger medicine!

We've resolved it (we think).  Thanks for the alert!

I have started getting an almost similar error. It's all the same except instead of
Quote
“PlayHint.asc”,line 2111
it says:
Quote
“PlayHint.asc”,line 2102

I also did not start getting that error until later: I have got all code parts except Memorious's part, and I'm trying to decipher the "Redline" entry.

You say reinstalling fixes the problem, but won't that mean I have to replay the whole game? Won't it remove my saves?

I'm running the steam version.

Savegames will always work between versions of primordia unless said so.
