Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

Is it the newest version of AEInstaller?

I can run it well.

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

It is the same as the old one, just compiled differently. I'm trying to figure out the cause of a certain error.

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

YES!!!!!!

VICTORY!

Thanks gumby for going above and beyond the call of duty and recompiling the program and everything just to fix a problem a couple people were having.

Some notes if they will help others who are having this problem.
I had to completely reinstall Oni fresh to get it to work, and delete the old Edition Folder. Otherwise it would actually install all the files but Oni.exe would still not fire up. So I reinstalled Oni AND the old 7th Anniversary Edition file, then I DLed your file from this thread and replaced the old AEinstaller.exe with the new one and it worked.


Again thanks, and I will let you guys know if any other bugs pop up.

PS: ONI WIDESCREEN! DON'T HAVE TO RUN IN A WINDOW!!! You may consider posting the 7th Anniversary Edition file to one of those websites that helps people play games in widescreen like http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wi … Main_Page. It was actually trying to find WS support that I stumbled on this page.

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

You shouldn't have to reinstall Oni as long as you reglobalize.

...and that really wasn't above the call of duty. tongue Apps should work for everyone, that is a basic philosophy,

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

Wow, a forum devoted to widescreen gaming shocked.gif.  Well, the Daodan did add widescreen to Windows Oni, right?  It seems that on the Mac side, we were always offered that resolution by the Omni port, is that right, EdT?  Perhaps that's worth mentioning there as well.

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

I want to say that I had a problem with the game edition just today maybe this can be helpful for future releases ...

It was running great ... then for some reason today when i installed an additional package (i did install other packages before with no problem)  i think it was "Barabus Draining Regeneration by Loser"   then I launched the game and there was no sound at all :\ I launched again and same thing ... then I ran the AEinstaller and disabled this new package clicked install and re launched Oni.exe this time Oni  won't start at all :S ... I thought i should re-globalize and did that but couple of errors showed up I didn't keep them ... and tried to launch it after that and it won't launch ...

so I had to delete the edition folder and re-install and globalize and now it works again ... I'm thinking if I should retry that package ...  was it the package or the installer ?

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

Hmm, okay.  It seems that the Installer in this thread sometimes creates an incomplete GDF.  The only solution is to start over like you did.  When Gumby gets back soon, he will be taking another look at the problem.  We've been hearing reports, mostly from the Russian forum, about this issue but not really anyone over here yet, so thanks for letting us know.

If Oni not launching happens to you again, or anyone else, it will help if you attach the startup.txt from the Edition folder to your post just to confirm what we think the issue is.

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

in case of not-launching daodan generates startup.txt ending with "loading level 0...". nothing else. FASM daodan generates demonic spells that can be understood only by SFeLi.

If you could give me the FASM daodan startup.txt that would be great. I too can read the demonic spells it generates.

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

Here is example of FASM startup. +AEInstaller window screenshot (with the problem written) +dependency walker screenshot

P.S. "Отказано в доступе" = "Access denied" or something like that
P.P.S. "Не удаётся найти указанный файл" = "Cannot find selected file" or something like that
P. P. P. S. "Depend.JPG" is a DW screenshot of another user experiencing this problem

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

U lost me at FASM ^_^   all I know is sometimes the AEinstaller does an error and it says oni split encountered an error debug or close ... i usually debug ... after that oni either doesn't launch at all or launches without sounds or blams when i load any level ... after that the aeinstaller does't do an error if i remove the new package or install a new one but still oni doesn't launch ... even after i delete the whole gamedatafolder and reglobalize ...
I have reinstalled it about  5 times till now tongue ... it's worth it though but i wish i knew what was happening ...

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

Dream, next time you get that error please screenshot it. I don't remember adding a debug or close option. neutral

Both the MPR.DLL and MSJAVA.DLL are normal false positives.

However, the AEInstaller exception is the exact sort of error I was looking for! Thank you very much. A question though: can you get whoever got that error to run the installer with the english language pack for Windows enabled? Having the exact english text of the error would be super.

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

so any ideas on what may be causing this or how to solve it ? at this point I'm not able to play the edition at all anymore even a reinstall didn't solve it ... now it blams and crashes whenever i install a package regardless of what the package is ...

please read my second post for more details (sorry about double posting)

Re: Test this if you can't run the installer.

a question in the game data folder there's supposed to be a raw and dat file of each ?

i see a raw and dat file of all except level0_textures it has a dat file but not a raw one ...

also there's no level 0 animations neither raw nor dat ...  (there is a folder though with many files)

which indicates that the Aeinstaller isn't completing the files importing creating an incomplete GDF like Iritscen said ... eventhough it doesn't say anything .... and that is what's causing the game to crash ... any fix for that ?



ok i deleted the raws and dats in the gamedata folder .... and then ran the aeinstaller this time it created all files ...  and the game ran !

a third time i checked an additional package ... this time it didn't create the level0_sounds

a 4th time it created all files hmm

so it's pretty random

Look at Install.log next time it does something funky like that, too. neutral

Probably not. That folk is disappeared already. *sigh*

Maybe this bug is system-specific? One of those experiencing this problem had Windows XP "F***YouBill" build. And it can have some bugs in itself so AEInstaller cannot work properly.
