Keys error on startup in mac 0.24
« on: July 19, 2003, 05:39:05 am »

I am trying to update to nic's 2.4 build. I get the error

Code:
VControl: Expected ':' on config file line N

for many N, then the message,
Code:
Hey!  you haven't updated your keys.cfg to use the new system, have you?
Delete keys.cfg and try again.
If you've done that and it STILL doesn't work, make sure your content/starcon.key is up todate.

So I did, and I still got the message, so I CVS updated (it updated starcon.key), and tried again, then deleted the keys.cfg again and STILL got it.

What is the proper starcon.key file format now?

You could try copy the new starcon.key to your save place (names keys.cfg).  If that doesn't work, there might be some bug with the loader and macs.

UQM copied starcon.key into ~/.uqm/keys.cfg when I tried to run it. There is no difference between the two files.

Try replacing the contents of your starcon.key and keys.cfg with the example I put in this thread.

THAT'S IT!!!! I GIVE UP!!!! I didn't thought installing an update will be so hard and impossible! You have to know c++ or something for it?!!? I'll just reinstall the game and wait for the offical new release(unless someone WILL help me. BTW, well at least you tried to help sage...).

DJ... you don't need to know C++.

I have a few questions to refresh and get organized.

The first problem arose when you were trying to use uqm2, a.k.a. frenzy. Then you mistakenly deleted the uqm.exe file, right?

Then you asked for (many times) and eventually got a uqm.exe, which you could have downloaded off the web for free from Striker. Right?

This did not fix the problem. Since it didn't fix the problem, we know that we don't know what is wrong. This led none of us to answer at first.

At this point, simply installing a Striker build without content would probably be the least hassle for you, us, and the internet as a whole.
Or you could wait a few weeks for a version 0.3 build (an anonymous source tells me they're getting there), and do a clean installation of that.

I'm waiting for that(and helping in my own way). To compensate for the loss of SC2, I will play such classic games as, oh, Wizardry, Command and Conquer, Combat (especially the one with the Bomber vs the three fighters), and Metroid instead. Can you try something similar.
Heck, you can try learning nifty card solitaires -- they never ever crash or go buggy (unless you lose a card). Or you could meditate, or learn abstract algebra, or something.

Dear Death,
I have found the problem with the frenzy, It was for 0.24v not 0.2v. So all I had to do is to update. Simple isn't it? Well since the creator/s of this version think all are programs they forgot to make an easy install and made us spending hours trying to install it(well not hours). So please if you can't help don't complain.

Your one and only complainer,
DJ.
