Cannot Load Instant Action, Ranges, or Tutorials [RESOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Yes, this is the same error you mentioned previously with the missing "hmap" map package. You are also missing all the deltas of it. These are installed with SB.

 

It sounds like SB was installed, and you specified that the maps should be installed to one location, then the map package installer were installed, and the location was specified differently which, in the registry, is now your new map location. But since it differs from the first path, the minimal maps are not present.

 

So, if you can find the location where it put the minimum maps, and move them to where you have all your maps installed, then you will be good.

 

You can search for: "Gunnery Range Map" and "Instant Action Map" or "range.ter" or "_tutorial_mod.ter".  When you find them, cut and paste the delta map folders from there into your ...hmap [autocreated base]\deltas folder where you maps are actually installed, and you should be good to go.

Yes, the "Tutorial Map" is also in that hmap folder too.  Just copy the entire deltas folder contents from old location to new location.

Right, "Gunnery Range Map", "Instant Action Map" and "Tutorial Map" are missing. 

 

If you search for them, then I think you will find their folders in the other locations specified.

OK I think we wrote that the same time.  Odd, not sure what you did there, but anyway here are the files.  Extract into your ...hmap [autocreated base]\deltas folder.

Just searched my computer (2 drives) with no results....This is wild.

 

I swear I used the download links for the map packs

Yes, its not that.  The Steel Beasts 4.1 game has some basic "minimum maps" included, which are the ones you listed, including the "flat" (blank) map that loads when you go the Mission Editor. These are not included in the big Map Package Installer, because we thought they are included in the game install and didn't think about the possibility of installing them to two different locations. This was an oversight on our part, and we will update the installer, or update the instructions, or something like that.

 

So, the "minimal maps" were installed somewhere, then the Map Package Installer was installed somewhere else (like another drive), so in the registry SB no longer knows the first location where to find the other maps.  But its good that it happened, so we could fix the loop hole.
