error on new game (18.13) start

Post by Dark_star »

factorio 18.13, on steam
On start of new game get following;
...Data/Roaming/Factorio/temp/currently-playing/control.lua:2: ...ata/Roaming/Factorio/temp/currently-playing/freeplay.lua:22: attempt to index global 'game' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
...ata/Roaming/Factorio/temp/currently-playing/freeplay.lua:22: in main chunk
[C]: in function 'require'
...Data/Roaming/Factorio/temp/currently-playing/control.lua:2: in main chunk
stack traceback:
[C]: in function 'require'
...Data/Roaming/Factorio/temp/currently-playing/control.lua:2: in main chunk "

Note: load of old save pre 18.13 works ???

Thanks

You have some messed up freeplay script?

Can you try deleting the 'data/scenarios' folder from the install directory, then using Steam 'validate install' to redownload the files

thanks much,
elected to save appdata/roaming/factorio file, then uninstall and reinstall in one sitting which seemed to work.
note do not know where "Steam 'validate install'" is.
freeplay, Krastorio 2 works
Thanks again
