Missing a file? Error message at load

Recommended Posts

During mission loading I am seeing, very briefly, an error message pop up.  I think it's indicating a missing texture file, but it disappears right away.

 

Is there a logfile somewhere I can go to to read the message?  It seems to acknowledge itself.

Try the "DebugLog.txt" file located here:

 

C:\Users\mark\Documents\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\logs (replace "mark" with your user id).

 

Each time you launch SB it will write one, so "DebugLog.txt" becomes "DebugLog_0.txt" then next time you launch it and a fresh "DebugLog.txt" is created.

 

I think it gets up to "DebugLog_12.txt" before it starts to overwrite them.

Oddly enough I didn't find anything in there except for some warnings about memory, but I think that's because I have wayyyyy too much RAM so I don't have a paging file....Hmmm....I'll keep trying to screenshot the message...

You may want to start SB Pro PE in "debug mode" (see the corresponding icon in the Troubleshooting folder for a more elaborate and detailed log file. Of course, too much information can sometimes be an even bigger problem.

The memory warnings are normal, but if there's a problem you should get something like the following log when loading a scenario with a missing linked height map. It wasn't entirely clear from your first post, does the scenario actually load and run properly?
