Recent Mission Editor issue

Post by Silk » Thu Dec 29, 2016 12:21 pm

Just for info I thought that I would fill you guys in on a small issue I had with the Mission Editor after the latest major patch.

Basically what was happening was that although I could open existing missions and edit them just fine, I was unable to get the Editor to generate a new map using File > New. The editor would crash with a Windows Exception Code of 0xc0000005 and landscape.dll recorded as the faulting package in the Error Log.

1CGS support suggested that I go to the \Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\bin\editor directory and delete a file called startup.cfg then run the file integrity checker in Steam. Unfortunately the file they mentioned did not exist there, but I did find a Windows Batch File there called ResetEditorSetting which sorted the issue for me when run.

Anyhow, I think that the existence of this batch file is something that it is useful to be aware of in case of further issues down the line.

I don't use steam for BoS but the resteditor file is available in the non steam version. I often use it to cure various occasional problems with the editor

Wha?

(I've got to start checking the forum better than I usually do...)

Resteditor? What does it do? Sort of reset? I do get issues. The one I'm tearing my hair out at the moment over is skins. The skin I assign to aircraft doesn't "stick"... Heck, I'll describe it in the ME room.
