Question to "ERROR locating resource for 'CHAIN3'"
« on: February 23, 2014, 04:01:04 PM »
I get the following error message. I have no idea what WeiDu is trying to tell me. Since it is not telling me which dlg is missing, I am not able to locate the error in the .d-file. Can someone point me as to how I can identify the problem?

Maybe we've got a wrong banter file name somewhere?

CHAIN3 = I_C_T3
You'd get the same error message trying to compile the following single-line D file:
Code: [Select]
I_C_T3 ~~ ~BBB~ ~sdfsdf~ END
So if you're using %variables% for dialog files in I_C_Ts, make sure they're not misspelled or empty.

Would it be possible to let WeiDU give the name of the dlg it is choking on for this error message? I checked the file in question and am really clueless. It's a mod for BG1+BGT+Tutu where all NPCs are talking, but the libs with the NPC joined dialogue and banter is assigned, the missing dlgs (for Imoen, Dynaheir and Viconia) in BG1 are created etc.pp.
The above error message is the same for Tutu and BG:TotSC and I have no idea what is the reason. :-(

Wait - the installer misses the specification of a dlg name in the .d file, is this what the error message is saying? I thought it cannot append to a dlg because the dlg isn't present in the game.

The error message is telling you it failed to load a file with no file name and the extension DLG.

Thank you. I figured it out eventually. I don't know what I expected, I guess the reason that it was an "empty" dlg name lead me to the conclusion that there is no information in the error message, instead of understanding it.
