[0.12.10] Sandbox Mode - StoryUpdate

Post by pyhfol »

Hi all,

(Previously posted in 'Releases')

Tried updating via the auto-updater ang got an error (no record) so I downloaded the full install and it all worked fine.

However, now my sandbox game wont load:

Error didnt look like it was specific to a mod, but I disabled all mods and still presents itself.

Referenced section in control.lua is:

Code: Select all

game.on_event(defines.events, function(event)
story_udpate(global.story, event, "")
end)
Tested a new non-sandbox game and a save and both worked fine.

Log attached

Cheers,
pyhfol

Thanks for the report. I've fixed this for 0.12.11 :)

For those who don't know, you can fix this by modifying the control.lua file in your install directory under Factorio\data\base\scenarios\sandbox\control.lua and it will be fixed for all new games you make. Just search for "udpate" and change to "update" and save. Recommend you do NOT use Windows Notepad to make the fix if using Windows, rather use Wordpad or some better editor handles different file encodings reasonably well.

That way, you can still play sandbox without waiting for 12.11!

As the file is .lua and is just raw text using notepad (i use notepad++) would be perfectly fine.

Ive edited files in notepad several times with absolutely no issue.

Thanks for the tip on the edit as well.
