Crash after help page

Postby cyberpank » Fri Dec 14, 2007 10:49 am

Crashing after pressing <any key> in the help page.
stderr says:
SCRIPT ERROR: ModifyScriptDescriptor::OpenFile() could not open the file C:\Documents and Settings\Aleksey\Мои документы/Allacrost/settings.lua

It looks like game can't handle russian names of directories in path to its setting file! Any suggestions?

UPDATE:
When i created C:\Documents and Settings\Aleksey\Мои документы/Allacrost/settings.lua manually (simply blank file) game starts with a black screen and does nothing (but not freezes, Esc key works and game stops). Maybe if i have some default settings.lua, game will start normally... Anyone can send it to me?

There is a default settings file in C:\Program Files\Allacrost\dat\config. Let us know if manually copying that helps (or if it doesn't). I don't think we tested non-English languages much.

Thanks, manually copying helps! Looks like game can't create file when there are non-latin characters in path!
