[0.18.14] "Error while parsing __base__/campaigns/beta/description.json not found" when saving

Post by Omnifarious »

This bug has shown up for other people in previous versions, but it appears to be back:

Whenever I save, I get this error message before the save process starts, and after it completes:

Code: Select all

  28.468 Error Util.cpp:83: Error while parsing __base__/campaigns/beta/description.json:
File __base__/campaigns/beta/description.json not found (No such file or directory)
This happens with or without mods, and even with a new game with no mods started from scratch in a fresh install. But, it only happens in the steam version of my game, not in the version I downloaded from your website.

But, in the logs where I have mods, it seems to happen at the end of the process in which it appears that the code for mods is being hashed, and my guess is that you're doing that so that you can detect changes to mods when the game is reloaded. Here is an example with mods:

Post the complete log please.
This is lightly anonymized. If needed, I can post a similar log from an attempt to create, then save a brand-new modless game. I was using the non-Steam version until about 0.18.12. This error has been present since then. It wasn't present in the Steam version for any later 0.17.x version. Lastly, the game does appear to successfully save. Just these dialog boxes come up to worry and annoy me. :-)

I've tried uninstalling the Steam version and re-installing it again, twice...
