I have some bad news folks :unsure:

 

Ok, With the release of BWP Fixpack v13.0.4, I have officially taken over the BiG World Fixpack :crazy:

 

Important links:

 

BWP Fixpack Official SHS Download

- The official place to get the officially latest version of the official BWP Fixpack, officially.

 

BWP Fixpack Git Repository

- The unofficial place to get the most up-to-date version of the BWP Fixpack (should be continuously updated while I'm around :P)

- This will always be at a higher version than the current official package of the BWPFixpack (for eg: If SHS has v13.0.4, git will have v13.0.5) This will show up in your BiG World Debug.txt when you run the fixpack

 

BWP Fixpack Update Tracker

- For non-git users, lets you see exactly what gets changed in each update (each commit is clickable and easily understandable: for example)

- For git users... meh :lol:

 

BWP Fixpack Unofficial Git Download

- For those who need the absolute latest fixes and changes applied by the BWP Fixpack.

- If something breaks if you use this, please do post and I'll gladly assist if possible. The git repo download may be unofficial but it's supposed to work :D

 

Fixes for the BWP Fixpack thread

- The place to find almost every fix in the BWP Fixpack (not the place to discuss why the fixpack errors out/how the fixpack sucks - do that in this thread :P)

 

Feel free to fork, pull, push, play and do other naughty things with the repository :P

 

My current objective is to audit everything in the _BWP Fixes.txt so most commits will reflect that (as well as any fixes that get added, updated, deprecated)

 

Problems, suggestions and absolute, blind rage - please direct it to a post in this thread. I'll do what I can :cheers:

I have some bad news folks :unsure:

I still don't see anything bad at this... well, except the fact that you might get overworked on this, but that's your problem... not a bad news for the other folks. :devil: :cheers:

Ouh, and congrats.

Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

There is a problem concerning line endings in the patch files of this fixpack: The line endings are UNIX style instead of windows style (as was in release v13.0.2 and before). This results in the patch.exe crashing with an assertion when a patch file is processed:

 

  Assertion failed, hunk, file patch.c, line 343

 

This behaviour is documented in the http://gnuwin32.sour...kages/patch.htm page. When I change the line endings of a patch file to DOS/Windows in Notepad++ the file is processed without an error.

 

I guess the reason for the line ending change is GIT converting windows line endings to unix when committing to the repository.

Shit I was afraid of this one!

 

I've added the --binary flag to the patch.exe cmd line. I'd be grateful if someone could test this out immediately (you'll need to download the latest master package) :cheers:

Ah, I already tried that myself (should have posted it earlier). When I add the --binary option to the command line I get the following error:

 

patching file `AbyStore\readme-AbyStore.html'
Hunk #1 FAILED at 786.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to AbyStore\readme-AbyStore.html.rej

 

This also happens also for the remaining files (at some point I stopped the batch-execution).

 

I suggest a checkout/pull from GIT (which should convert the UNIX line endings back to windows) and then changing the line ending option in GIT, so the line endings will be commited without any conversion.

 

Thanks for the quick help :)

This looks good :)
 
I still get the error regarding
 
patching file `AbyStore\readme-AbyStore.html'
Hunk #1 FAILED at 786.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to AbyStore\readme-AbyStore.html.rej

 

but the other patches went through smoothly. I'm using BigWorld Setup (and slipstreamed the new BWP Fixpack from GIT into the game directory before the WeiDU installation started) by the way.

 

I saw that you accidently (?) added the --binary flag to the command line again. I removed it manually before starting the installation.

 

BigWorld Setup is still doing its thing and I have to wait some time before starting the game, but so far everything looks good. Thanks again for the help :)

Can you explain how you did this exactly?  I really would like to install everything with BWS, but the fixpack always crashes on patch.exe.

 

This is what I did

1) downloaded the latest fixpack from Github (using the "download zip" button)

2) edited the .bat file and removed the --binary flag from line 56

3) repacked it to "BiG World Fixpack-13.0.4.7z" and copied over the old version in my "BiG World Downloads" folder so the BWS would use the new version

4) ran BWS and disabled new downloads so the fixed version won't get overwritten by the old version

5) but... it still crashes on patch.exe like before, i.e.

 

Spoiler

 

This *should* work, right?  What am I missing?  Did I download the wrong file or something?

And done :cheers:

 

I'd purged my local copy and git converted everything to have LFs like the remote copy. I had to find a local copy and revert everything back :doh: Sorry for this :P

Hello Lollorian.

 

Your fix for The Undying mod in here was removed from BiG World Fixpack in v11.4 or v12 (not sure) when Solaufein said here that he was updating the mod.

 

But he hasn't updated the mod like he said. He seems to be too busy with BG:EE. Maybe that fix should remain in fixpack until he finally updates the mod.

Just so you know, using .gitattributes is today the preferred way of handling conversion of newlines.

Well that is weird. On version 2.11 on my computer it is fixed but when I opened the TP2 file in my rar archive it still had the old names. For some reason it wasn't updated in the archive the last time I fixed this. Now it is.

Her locks were as yellow as gold
Her skin was white as leprosy.
The Nightmare Life-in-Death was she,
Who thicks man's blood with cold.

Um, Solaufein, you just made the mod copy some CRE files that aren't supplied in the mod :blink: In its current state, theUndying can't even be installed unfortunately.

 

The BWP Fixpack changes the block:

COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST.CRE~ ~override~
   SAY NAME1 ~Ghost~
   SAY NAME2 ~Ghost~
   WRITE_ASCII 0x280 ~CMGHOST1~
 
COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST.CRE~ ~override~
   SAY NAME1 ~Ghost~
   SAY NAME2 ~Ghost~
   WRITE_ASCII 0x280 ~CMGHOST2~
 
COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST.CRE~ ~override~

to

COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST.CRE~ ~override/CMGHOST1.CRE~
   SAY NAME1 ~Ghost~
   SAY NAME2 ~Ghost~
   WRITE_ASCII 0x280 ~CMGHOST1~
 
COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST.CRE~ ~override/CMGHOST2.CRE~
   SAY NAME1 ~Ghost~
   SAY NAME2 ~Ghost~
   WRITE_ASCII 0x280 ~CMGHOST2~
 
COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST.CRE~ ~override/CMGHOST3.CRE~

You changed it into:

COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST1.CRE~ ~override~
  SAY NAME1 ~Ghost~
  SAY NAME2 ~Ghost~
  WRITE_ASCII 0x280 ~CMGHOST1~
COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST2.CRE~ ~override~
  SAY NAME1 ~Ghost~
  SAY NAME2 ~Ghost~
  WRITE_ASCII 0x280 ~CMGHOST2~
COPY ~TheUndying/cre/CMGHOST3.CRE~ ~override~

 

And those CMGHOSTX.CREs aren't present in the CRE folder in the mod :unsure:

As far as I know, has already been a month since released a new hotfix for Item Revisions.
