Had a working 3.3, but no joy with new 3.4
« on: October 07, 2018, 05:08:18 PM »

Pretty much says it all.I'm almost always sure I have made a mistake in install and this might be the case this time,I did a torrent download of 3.4 into a folder, unpacked the 4 parts & installer,and pressed install.When I hit the old "Selector ,nothing much happens & then the 'Selector screen appears again. I wonder if I can still salvage this whole package somehow...I'd hate to start all over again.Is there somewhere several steps back ( elimination of some of the newly installed folders ( WAW3 TJA3 etc.)where i might be able to get a running start? Could it be a corrupted download/ I feel a bit up a creek... :-[

What does BAT 3.4 Linebacker Install.log say?
What is your game location? Any possible access rights issue?
And form of game log file on startup?

unpacked the 4 parts

HOW TO INSTALL
Download all 4 zip parts + BAT Linebacker EXE
Put all of the parts + the EXE into a folder
Run the EXE

Hey Dietz, well some Selectors is old, but the New Selector is Updated by Mike last month.

And the BAT 3.4 is working like anyone else, soo you must Read Carefully.

This is unrelated. No need to manually update the selector in BAT.

Storebror & the rest of the crew giving me some clue,
Initially I simply ran the EXE with the 4 zipped folders,but found I couldn't get past selector, so I next tried unzipping them & then running the EXE,and unfortunately getting the same result. I have now tried the install about 4 times wth the same resultUndoubtedly this is something on my end,not the BAT 3.4.Perhaps there is some start over point I haven't thought of ?The crew here has been a great help in the past & I was hoping for some advice that didn't mean I'd have to start over from scratch. I loved 3.3 but 3.4 looks like the living end if only I could work through or around this apparent glitch.Thanks!

Certainly.
This is a good starting point:


And this one isn't to be scoffed at either, every line of it:
What does BAT 3.4 Linebacker Install.log say?
What is your game location? Any possible access rights issue?
Any form of game log file on startup?

Good point(s.)
I am getting a "No HL Found " message that I have never had before in any of my various versions . Could that be the problem?
Mike , would you tell be where to find the "Install log & I will quickly post it.

dietz,

Put all 5 files below together, in a folder, and run BAT 3.4 Linebacker Install.exe



The installer will generate a log. Share the contents with us.
