Game Freezes
« on: May 24, 2011, 05:18:38 AM »
After a long time playing SC4 I've finally started to use DatPacker.

It's a very useful tool but now i came across a problem.

When scrolling through my "Water" menu, the game will lock up and becomes unresponsive. It always stops in the SNM Water Supply. 

Does anyone have an idea about what's going on?

Thanks
 Zé

Does this not happen if you do not datpack?

RandomTheory: It may be you have something that overwrites something that SNM Water Supply uses?

Dat packer might have caused a corruption of that particular water lot. Have you tried to dat pack again? You can also try to temporarily take the water stuff from your plugins and then do the pack. Putting the water things back in your plugins for game play.


Good Luck

Thanks a lot for the advice.

Did you make sure to delete the old files generated by datpacker, rather than just overwrite them, and did you move the unpacked files from your plugin folder?

(I'm sorry if this sounds condescending, just making sure we know what's happening)

Hi Joe

Don't worry about that.

 I moved all the files packed out from the plugins. I just leaved the compressed ones.

I will try to Datpack again without the SNM water suply lot and see if the problem continues.

Thanks very much for the reply.
