Alien Armageddon "Error Compiling Con Files" in Zeta touch

User is offline   steeloid

I've asked about this on reddit :https://www.reddit.com/r/dukenukem/comments/yqufbk/error_compiling_con_files_in_zeta_touch/ Now I'm asking here as I don't know where else to contact the creators of this mod. Can anyone help? I'll post eduke log here too if it will help:

not a coder, so no guarantees

replace this file in the scripts folder

all i did was 'fix' a format; there's a good chance the same compile error will show up

I just want to point out that the publicly available version has CON script that compiles fine with the EDuke32 that it comes with. If you are trying to make it work with Zeta Touch and someone has repackaged it in a way that doesn't work, that's outside the scope of what I as the developer am going to worry about.

However, IIRC, the event EVENT_GETBONUSTILE that the compiler is choking on in your log was added in a version of EDuke32 in the last few years. So the error makes sense if someone replace it with a much older version of the .exe

dan is the script coder
so if the one i provided doesn't work, you're on your own

here's a generic grp file extractor/compiler.
i suggest extracting all the files out of the grp, drop the con into the appropriate folder & overwrite the old one, then re-compile all the files back into a new grp file


Attached File  XGroup.zip (542.38K)
Number of downloads: 6


And as Dan mentioned, you should acquire the latest public release and simply compile that into a grp file - so you know you have all the right cons and eduke32.exe

Extracting the grp just gave me a dummy file so I'll have to make a new one but the game folder includes a bunch of folders including one with the con files which aren't seen by x-group so how do I go about this?

Instead of using xgroup I suggest changing the extension of the ".grp" file to .zip and see if it opens like a normal zip file.

launch the xgroup.exe, browse to the location of the grp file and hit the x-extract button

Have you tried asking for help on the OpenTouch Gaming discord? They have channels for mod-help and zeta-touch
I don't use Zeta Touch and I don't know why my mod was repackaged the way it was -- like I said, the error you are getting is consistent with the executable from a much older version being substituted in.

launch the xgroup.exe, browse to the location of the grp file and hit the x-extract button


Attached Image: Untitled.jpg


selecting the button removes all the other files from the selection box & leaves the grp file - so select it and all the files inside are shown in the right side box

Attached Image: Untitled.jpg

check the box that says 'extract all files'
click the extract grp right below that box, say yes to the default 'all files will be extracted to c:\blah\blah\Extract' folder

browse to the extraction folder - drop in the files you need, where you need them to overwrite the old ones

after all the files have been replaced - browse the xgroup program to the folder where the extract occured and click the 'X-group' button at the bottom

I told you already extracting AA.grp just gets me a dummy file that says: DUMMY GRP, DO NOT ALTER.

then use the other program that Lakisoft posted.
If that still doesn't work, then contact the person you got the file from and ask them to make you a new one.
The one you have can't be edited by traditional means & who knows how they made it, or what's actually in it

hopefully someone on those discord channels has a proper working one / can make a good working version.

it's so fun when people make stuff for other ports & when it doesn't work there's not a lot we can do other than to pass them on to the next group of people

no offence if I came across a bit condescending. Some people that show up here are kinda 'low knowledge' when it comes to dealing with computer files - so I default to dealing with the lowest common denominator

Is the problem with the Eduke version zeta's using or the eduke files in the grp?

Based on the error you presented and on that fact alone my guess would be the Eduke32 version zeta's using. HOWEVER, the existence of EVENT_GETBONUSTILE in EDuke32 goes back far enough that I find this surprising. I wonder if someone substituted in a much older EDuke32 version because they believed it had better performance. Perhaps said older version did work with other mods so they thought it would be safe to use with AA. That's only speculation on my part though -- I have never used Zeta Touch and I did not make the AA package for it so I'm just guessing.

Just following up with a direct reply from Antares:

Quote

ANTARES — Today at 11:19 PM
One [other] person also wrote about a compilation error. And the reason turned out to be the same - the old build of eduke32. Zeta Touch now has two versions of eduke32 - stable (old) and dev build (fresh) There are no problems [with Alien Armageddon 4.60] using the latter.


So use the one with the newer EDuke32.

Just heard back on the opentouch discord, they said to use dev (you can switch between stable and dev) and that the moddb version doesn't work on zeta and linked me to their own grp (presumably modified for zeta)
