Help?

Postby Varis » Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:36 am

So, I have no clue where this is supposed to go, but I found everything else here, so I may as well look here for this, too.

A few weeks ago, while looking for a new game to play, I stumbled across FTL, and (after being thoroughly irritated by the space shenanigans that love to screw me over), decided to try some mods. The most praised, it seems, is Captains Edition. Unfortunately, that requires SMM. And unfortunately, that doesn't seem to want to work for me. If I attempt to patch any of the .FTL files inside the "Mod" folder into the game, I get a "Patching Failed: Java.io.EOFException". This includes the two scrap boosters that SMM throws at you for free when you first install it.

I also get this lovely wall of errors when patching. Unfortunately, I don't speak coding, so I'll have to ask someone else to translate for me... And if you have any advice, thanks in advance!

Just a few questions, where did you install SMM and how did you install it:?
What order are you trying to install the mods:?
Thanks!

I can't remember which site, but it was a link from here, somewhere. As for how, I just downloaded and unzipped it.

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to mention, I made sure to place them all in the correct order, according to the CE forum page here. Which, unless I'm very much mistaken, is as follows.

Beginning Scrap Advantage 1.1.ftl
Engi Scrap Advantage 1.1.ftl
CE Resource Pack 1.301.ftl
FTL Captains Edition 1.301.ftl
CE Additional Music Addon 1.301.ftl
CE Infinite Addon 1.301b.ftl
CE Additional Music Infinite Compatibility Patch 1.0.ftl
EL Texture Pack 1.27.ftl
CE Endless Loot Addon for CE Infinite 1.301.ftl
CE Non-EL Enemy Loadouts Addon 1.26.ftl
Captured Battleship_FInal.ftl

EDIT 2: I'm an idiot. Forgot that I could just check my History...

Got it from here. http://subsetgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17102. I got the Window's Version 1.6

Thanks, will do!

Also, any help on how to add multiple Quotes to the same reply? I can see the "Quote" option, but no way to directly insert the quote itself, unless I have another tab open and copy/paste.

as in splitting up a quote from the same reply, or quoting two different people?

you split it by adding another set of quote brackets in between, like so, from this

Code: Select all

[quote="mr_easy_money"]Blah Blah Blah I said something...[/quote]

mr_easy_money wrote:Blah Blah Blah I said something...

to this

Code: Select all

[quote="mr_easy_money"]Blah Blah Blah[/quote][quote="mr_easy_money"]I said something...[/quote]

mr_easy_money wrote:Blah Blah Blah
mr_easy_money wrote:I said something...


quoting two different people, you scroll down below your reply and you can see all the posts on this page, and you can click the 'reply with quote' button, which will put in another set of quote brackets and the quote in your reply box:

did that answer your question? :?:

Yes! Thank you! Saves me scratching my head for hours trying to figure it out! I'm somewhat new to Forums... Well, not really, but it's been a few years, and eventhen, it was for reading fanfic or roleplay, so Quoting wasn't really high priority. xD

Interesting how the scrap mods are listed first, I always have them near the bottom, but above ship mods. Idk the proper order, but if it works your fine XD
I would try moving them behind all the overhaul mods but above any random flagship/ship ones.

You can have some pretty bad mod compatibility and still get things to work, so that shouldnt be too much of an issue.

I would suggest only trying to patch in one mod to start with and see if that works (keep resource packs with their main though), and then gradually add in more mods till you find the problem. If you can't load any of the mods individually then either you'll need to re-install ftl (keep a copy of your save game folder though, Yourdocuments/mygames/FasterThanLight the two .sav files record your saved games + ship unlocks etc.)y
OR
Slipstream needs to be re-installed.
I have mine installed in the MyGames folder under my documents just to keep everything together, installing it on a usb stick or directly on the drive may cause some issues:??

I have tried patching just the one mod in. As I said above, even the Scrap mods end up with that Patching Error, and that's just patching them one at a time.

That narrows it down, have you tried re-installing Slipstream? The problem will be that it isnt linked to ftl or one of the two is corrupted.
Re-installing mine, I donwloaded from here (http://www.ftlgame.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=17102) presumbably the same place as you.
I then moved the downloaded zip folder and extracted it under mydocuments/mygames (where the ftl folder is).

Then I ran the .exe file, then this pops up:

Then yes to updates.

Slipstream then opened, I selected both scarp mods then clicked 'patch'

Any major differences you've encountered compared to me:?
