Error loading __base__ mod on fresh install

Post by GT77 »

I just got the game and installed it, and I got this error trying to play it.

I tried verifying game file integrity, reinstalling, reinstalling and verifying integrity.

Your file path
D:\My fucking shit, dude!\Frozen (Either ditchable temporary data or elements with constants contained in a sublte way)\Steam\steamapps\common\Factorio\data\base\graphics\entity\curved-rail\hr-curved-rail-horizontal-left-bottom-segment-visualisation-continuing-1.png
is longer than the 260 character path allowed on Windows 10.

You can shorten the name of the install folder, or edit the registry to enable a longer path.

or dear god, Wube can shorten the filename to a simple hash string.
