Hi Erik,

A rather good hunch at that. Installed Net Framework 4.0, updated its files at Windows Update, performed a warm boot, installed DW patch 1.7.0.20 beta and guess what----- IT RAN.

You can consider this thread closed with respect to my problem. Thanks for your time and effort Erik. Much appreciated. OH! And you might consider changing the rig specs for DW Legends to include Net Framework 4.0.

Lastly, good luck to you in the next couple of days. Hunker down for the next snow storm moving into your area. If I could, I'd box up some of the warmth we have down here and send it up to you guys.

Erik: Installing the latest Net Framework 4.5 solved the issue for me. I didn't try installing the older version 4.

1. When can we expect more information on Shadows?
2. What half year can we expect Shadows?

Hi Sithuk,

I believe if you don't install the Net Frameworks in succession it may cause problems further down the line. Each Net Framework builds upon the preceeding ones. Microsoft has a Net Framework utility program which will uninstall versions of Net Framework as it isn't effective to uninstall with the control panel.

I ran into that problem a couple of years ago and it was a real pain getting all my ducks in a row. Just a heads up to you if your computer starts doing weird things in the future.

@ravincravin,
Just asking because I was running version -----16 ok, but as soon as I installed version -----20 (beta) my antivirus software (Avast), deleted the exe on start up. Just wondered if you were having the same problem, but obviously not.

Thanks for the heads up about Avast. My problem was solved, I had to update to MS Net Framework 4.0.

Hi guys,

We'll be including .NET 4.0 in the next public beta update installer. Our bad for not realizing that some of the work for Shadows had created a new dependency for our Legends updates. .NET 4.5 will also work, but I'd suggest going with 4.0 unless you need 4.5 for now. 4.5 is a bit odd in that it tries to replace 4.0 but does not do so perfectly. Previous .NET revisions have been able to exist side by side and whichever one the program needed, you needed. In many cases newer versions could support older dependencies but not in all cases.

Regards,

- Erik

Would this .NET issue cause the game to run slower? I'm having memory issues with large game now so I have to exit DW and restart it often because game slows down so much.

I cannot speak about older systems but I have been using 4.5 since December of 2012 with no problems. No crashes with huge maps....yet.

My rig is an Toshiba r850 I5 2.5GHz laptop with 8GB ram.

I had the exact same problem.
I went from V17 to v20, and kaboom.

Net Framework 4.5?
I will try that.

I have to find a full version. My computer at my home is good, but the modem speed is slow, and even 34,000 takes a LONG time.
I hope to try again this weekend.

I just installed the game fresh on a new computer (windows 7). Started with Basic Game (tested, ran), Shakura (tested ran), installed Legends patch 20, won't start.

From the crash log:
ystem.ApplicationException: Could not find required image: C:\Distant Worlds\images\units\ships\other\majorsets\PhantomPirates\escort.png
at DistantWorlds.Types.BuiltObjectImageCache.CheckLoadSmallImage(Int32& index, String fullPathWithoutSuffix, String fullPathWithoutSuffixCustom)
at DistantWorlds.Types.BuiltObjectImageCache.GenerateBuiltObjectImageFilepaths()

There is no PhantomPirates folder in that location. Before this, this computer has never had the game installed, also no mods.

Thanks in advance
mando

here is that missing file.

Just rename it back to escort.png and place it in the PhantomPirates folder.

If he lacks the folder, I guess he won't have the frigate either...

It is clearly a faulty install. Try download legends and install again, or something.

And just to be clear, the steps needed are:

1: Install DW
2: Install return of the shakturi
3: Install legends
4: Install legends patch 20

You did not mention step 3, and stepping that would kind of... result in missing all kind of files.

Thanks, the download link provided on the site under my account just provided patch 20. I assumed it was all that was needed. I shall open a ticket to get the original base install.

When I bought legends (way back), I got an email with download information. The header to that effect.
Inside a link I think is open for a week or two.

If this link is not received, or no longer working, a ticket should solve it.
