(solved) Problem with Nightly 757
« on: November 11, 2009, 05:24:33 AM »
I downloaded Nightly 757 and tried to run it with Simutrans 102.2.  The program crashes on starting with an error message: "FATAL ERROR: alle_geladen 12skin_besch_t-object WindowSkin not found.  *** PLEASE INSTALL PROPER BASE FILE AND CHECK PATH ***"

Anyone know what this is and how to fix it?

Thanks a lot.

Andrew

The nightly 757 is for a nightly simutrans ....

And it requires (at least once) the full nightly package, not just the .exe - just as was written in the other thread.

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty sure that you've diagnosed the issue.  I didn't download the Simutrans Nightly, just the PAK files.  My bad. I'll try again tonight with the corresponding version of the program.

BTW: I've been playing Simutrans for several years.  I really think it's an extraordinary project, especially the way the developers are constantly refreshing the game with new features.  It really puts to shame the tired old development model of commercial game designers.
