Title: Had a working 3.3, but no joy with new 3.4 [SOLVED]
Post by: dietz 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
Why?

HOW TO INSTALL
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.

https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,16403.0.html

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.

Run the EXE
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!

Perhaps there is some start over point I haven't thought of ?
Certainly.
This is a good starting point:

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

(https://i.postimg.cc/x1SVwFDJ/Capture.png)

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

post it inside [ code]   [ /code] (without the spaces)

Post by: dietz on October 09, 2018, 08:26:49 AM
Code: [Select]
Ok I've tried to post the entire install log within the bracketed [ code ] and [ code ] and [/code] with the same message of too many characters. Figuring I had got your instructions wrong,I then tried to find out if [ code] ,[/code ] were in the install log- they weren't.So maybe define your instructions a bit?
Something far more interesting has occurred in the meantime however & it does point to something in my PC NOT CAP install. I got tired of trouble shooting the old non working install & decided to start anew so to speak.I did a fresh white bread install up to 4,12.2 using the saved "Super Patch" to do so.I tested it and all was good up to that point , then I installed the 29 part CApinstall using ,of course the extractor.I went immediately to the "Selector" in the Il2 folder ,hit "StartNow" & got the message shown below, and a no start jusy as i have been getting with my older install. I tried the alternative dll.s with no result. So even the simplest install won't work...
I know its not the CAP package at fault here, because up until the last upgrade i was having no problem. I am using exactly the same torrent packages that I used previously ( I saved them all...)Obviously I'm no computer whiz , but I have been playing this sim since day one & using SAS help & upgrades,Mods , etc. for a long time as well ,with excellent results,sooooo what the h.....ll is going on here...ghost in the machine or what?
BTW Thanks for your patience-I do want to resolve this...eventually

Holy cow dietz... don't tell anyone that you've got almost 10 years of IL-2 experience and more than 700 posts on your back.
They might think you've lost your mind.

And form of game log file on startup?

Make a specific directory on your main drive, like C:\\games\
take your *complete* Il-2 main game folder and simply move (like: drag and drop) it there, outside the windows protected "programs" path.

This is exactly what the pop up text says as well.

Dietz, pls Clam down, you need to cool off first, you can’t remember run as Administrators button,

Simple,

Click the Selector Is n your Right mouse button and Run as administrator, it will pop up, and click Ok, and the Selector will Appear,

If you have a Window 7, Right click on your mouse button Properties and Click Run as Administrators

Another hint: When you want to post logfiles, make use of the code option (see link above)! And if you have to post looooooooong logfiles (like the complete installer log), upload them to pastebin.com and post the link here.
You have to understand that logfiles are important for us to see what's going on.
As much as you might think your description would perfectly tell all about the issue, as little anyone else but you understands what you even want to say, let alone knows what happened inside the installer or the game.
That's what logs are for.
Show them if you want help.

Ae you dietz installing all expansions or only B.A.T. 1.0 + LINEBACKER? I am not sure why you posted the B.A.T. 1.0 install log...

The correct order is:

1) Clean 4.12.2 (outside the Program Files folder)
run IL2 and confirm all good

2) B.A.T. 1.0
run IL2 and confirm all good

3) B.A.T. V3.0 CHECKPOINT CHARLIE
run IL2 and confirm all good

4) B.A.T. V3.1 OPERATION SEALION
run IL2 and confirm all good

5) B.A.T. V3.2 ANGELS HIGH
run IL2 and confirm all good

6) B.A.T. V3.3 PATHFINDER
run IL2 and confirm all good

7) B.A.T. V3.4 LINEBACKER
run IL2 and confirm all good

Fingers crossed ...hopefully this will work.It should be the initlog.ist be for the vanilla Bat 1 29 part installfound in the main game folder in C:Games /il-2
https://pastebin.com/gPeUEaq8
his is of course starting from zero..not the initial problem I was having with Line backer install.This really doesn't matter anymore anyway -I can transfer careers,skins, missions,et al from the old install to this one of I can just get it working.
I really hope I have done this right & you get what you would like to see...

I initially did a folder search for what you want to see & this was the result:

Scratching my head i opened the Game folder & was no more successful:

I no you don't make mistakes & that I was probably wrong in choosing what i did but it was the only thing I could find that was remotely close...

Curious that you don't have log.lst file in your root directory. Log.lst is the default name, but if you have sometime, somehow changed its name, it could be anything. Sounds like a pretty basic fuck up of your install. (I'm no expert, just another user like you.)

YES - Install v3.0 Checkpoint Charlie
NO - Tell us what happens

YES - Install v3.0 Checkpoint Charlie
NO - Tell us what happens

Tried the il2fb.exe-I got a CTD at 30%- the opening screen was on a CUP install. (?)
Installed Checkpoint Charlie, hit "Selector ",20 seconds later "Selector" appeared again...so no joy....maybe even a step backwards?

BUT not all bad news: I hit the il2fb exe. after the install of Checkpoint Charlie & after a bit got the UltraPack 3.1.4"Starting Il-2 1946" screen with the small Il-2 pictured. The PC chewed for another 3-4 minutes and up came the Checkpoint Charlie screen with a Me-262 rendering.and after a bit more of a wait I got the starting options menu screen. I got a CTD if I tried to change resolution to my PC( to  1920x1080) but started it again & of course things went much quicker! I only tried a QM but it worked just fine.Tried to change resolution again and again CTD. I have just changed it in Config . in the game folder. So I have part of things working again , but still no CAP Selector working. :-X

Post by: SAS~Storebror on October 10, 2018, 10:29:59 PM
The Selector is working as much as applying settings is concerned.
You can always start your game straight by launching il2fb.exe, there's no need to run the Selector every time.
It's really only needed to change settings.

Nevertheless, your game has created a logfile at that 30% stage as well as when the selector came back after 20 seconds.
As Cloyd said, "log.lst" is the default name for the logfile. You might have renamed it - in that case ask yourself why you did and why you cannot remember the name anymore.

Mike - this is a completely vanilla 4.12.2 install done yesterday.I haven't added ,changed,or installed a thing other than BAT1 & Checkpoint Charlie. Its as much a mystery to me as to where this log.ist is? :-X
( I don't know if this is at all relevant , but my original, original ancient Il-2 game folder with the 4.12.2 installed on top that I used a copy of to use with BAT ! & Checkpoint Charlie has no log.lst in it either. I just checked)

You're about to reach a point where I begin asking myself whether you're really searching for help or just for a couple of victims to fool around and steal some time from.

My recommendation is to proceed with the rest of the expansions. Dietz got Checkpoint working, we can get back to the issue with the selector later.

B.A.T. V3.1 OPERATION SEALION
1) Run the expansion installer
2) Confirm you don't get errors during install. Otherwise stop and post an image of the installer window.
3) Run il2fb.exe and confirm you get OPERATION SEALION in the loading screen

Repeat with:

B.A.T. V3.2 ANGELS HIGH
B.A.T. V3.3 PATHFINDER
B.A.T. V3.4 LINEBACKER

Title: Re: Had a working 3.3, but no joy with new 3.4
Post by: SAS~Storebror on October 11, 2018, 09:21:15 AM
Alright. It looks like I thought it would.
So now once more (3rd time now), read this and do what's being told there:

This time actually I was referring to the log.lst file of the game:

Read how to do this here:
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13457.0.html (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13457.0.html)

Important: what to post and how to post it (code option):
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=39780.0 (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=39780.0)

Another hint: When you want to post logfiles, make use of the code option (see link above)! And if you have to post looooooooong logfiles (like the complete installer log), upload them to pastebin.com and post the link here.
You have to understand that logfiles are important for us to see what's going on.
As much as you might think your description would perfectly tell all about the issue, as little anyone else but you understands what you even want to say, let alone knows what happened inside the installer or the game.
That's what logs are for.
Show them if you want help.

Mike

Gentlemen....we have lift-off,,,with everything at "Line Backer"!
Whistler: i think your advice of trying & re-trying the various Exe.s really helped and suggesting I just load everything all the way up the line.It took nearly a day to do it but the results were happy ones.
Mike: you don't suffer fools gladly...but then again why should you? My bad in not being able to generate ini.lst from from your detailed instructions. I was confident i knew what i was doing but I didn't.It wasn't until this morning I realized the solution to getting it was in one of your posts,by that time everything seemed to be working as I loaded one BAT update after another, so not much use in doing so now is there? i do want to thank you for hanging in there despite getting pretty frustrated and also I want to thank you for all your work on this sim.I have thanked you before ,elsewhere, but feel now that I can have it fully up & operating again, I should praise your efforts again.Now to import all those old missions & campaigns ,skins et al from the original install!
( You maybe interested why I have wanted a complete install up & going again,,,so in the next post( if this whole one hasn't been trashcanned by then ,I'll give you a bit of any explanation...)

I not only have played Il-2 for years but from time to time have used it for help in some of my aviation paintingsand it would have been a real loss not to have this marvelous tool.Several pictures tell several thousand words:

Glad to see that we have you aboard again dietz, my regards ;)
Your artwork looks really nice. Would you mind to offer a couple of these to our BAT devs for integration into the BAT splashscreens?

Gentlemen....we have lift-off,,,with everything at "Line Backer"!

Well done dietz! Your last step is to make sure you have the right dlls.

From this post (https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,53691.0.html):
Quote
Launch The Jet Age and go look at the Hind helicopter in the QMB Preview Window.  If it looks normal you are good to go.  If its a hideous naked mole rat pink you need the other DLLs

Check your Hind helicopter in the QMB Preview Window and share a screenshot. We will advise afterwards.

U-bet-Its the least I can do for this sim that has brought me hours of pleasure & some moments of frustration ( just joking...) What would you like to see?I could even provide one or two for DoF as well...
