Patching Failed (COPY) (Invalid_argument("String.sub"))
« on: September 19, 2007, 08:24:30 PM »
OK, did some poking around on the internet and I get the impression that this String.sub error is probably a mangled .cre - I suspect that the string attempting to be matched or substituted has been messed with, but that is as far as I got - I would appreciate a technical explination, so I can learn, if someone has the time!

For the actual error,

Conditions this error pops up on: a German Tutu v4 with TutuFix and BG1 NPC and not much else, an EasyTutu_ToB one as well. I can't replicate it yet, but will keep trying.


Error message:
Code: [Select]

ERROR: [_NEB.cre] -> [override] Patching Failed (COPY) (Invalid_argument("String.sub"))

Your code looks wrong, since you're adding three times the same known spell. Perhaps you were looking for ADD_MEMORIZED_SPELLS?

questions:
- does it work without the A_K_S / A_M_S?
- does it work in WeiDU <= 199 (A_K_S was re-written for W. 200)?
- can you upload somewhere the starting _neb.cre?

It does!
I exed only the KNOWN_SPELL, and it installed fine:

The debug sais:

Copying and patching 1 file ...
[./override/_NEB.cre] loaded, 1124 bytes
Unable to Unlink [BG1NPC/backup/0/_NEB.cre]: Unix.Unix_error(20, "unlink", "BG1NPC/backup/0/_NEB.cre")override/_NEB.cre copied to BG1NPC/backup/0/_NEB.cre, 1124 bytes
Copied [_NEB.cre] to [override/_NEB.cre]

I don't know what this Unix_error means, the debug sais it for nearly every copied file.
I will upload the _neb.cre tomorrow, if it will be still be needed.

Jas: the "Unable to Unlink" is a bug in WeiDU 200. You can ignore that.
If you can upload _neb.cre it'd help, yes. It means that I broke something re-writing A_K_S and I should fix that ASAP :)

Thank you Jastey -


I can confirm, though, that I *don't* have this error showing up on my install at all (or I wouldn't have shipped it, and it would have showed up in my install/uninstall/try-to-break v200 beta. I will work to replicate it (probably Sunday, if you haven't fixed it already by then :D ) by instaling other mods and seeing if I can make this show up. So far, on both v200 and internal beta testing, i have not been able to get this error message to show up. (I will try to add more modsa to the mix and put BG1NPC later in the order to try to pop this up).

OK, at this point I tend to believe that Jas's version of _neb.cre is different from CMorgan's. Can both of you upload your versions?
CM, there's no need to try and figure out which mod breaks what until I look at the files and figure out if Jas' version is broken or WeiDU is biggy  :)

EDIT: I am aware of the typo, but I left it because it's funny, in a "Freudian Slip" kind of way  ;D

or WeiDU is biggy  :)
I thought you wrote that on purpose. That's the cutest typo I've ever seen ;D

I am definite my _neb.cre is the source, but maybe there is something that can be done to erase the install error nontheless. I'll upload the file tonight.

Well, if your file is fine, then I should fix the bug in WeiDU. If your file is br0ken, then we have to find out which mod is breaking it  :)
If you have trouble uploading, you can email it to me (address on top of the WeiDU readme).

I can upload a set of .cres this afternoon:

1. instaled .cre from EasyTutu_ToB (I think Jastey and I are using the same version) and the .cre after installation of BG1NPC - just let me know if you need addtional ones. Time estimate is 10 hours from this post (gotta go to work) and the sirte will be the BG1NPC personal site (PM if you need a refresher on the link :) ).
No jokes about COPY LARGE please... 8)

I don't need the post-patch version, I need a version that can be patched and one that fails (I.E. Jastey's one).

I can send you both; my EasyTutu install works fine, my German Tutu v4 has the neb problem. (I'll have to wait until I'm home, though.)

OK, it appears that _neb_corrupted.cre is using EFF V1.0 rather than the standard EFF V2.0 for the embedded effects. Since that's used for a couple of existing effects already, I'll fix it.

EDIT: fixed.
