HOW TO INSTALL CONVERSIONS, HOW TO RUN THEM AND TROUBLESHOOTING

HOW TO INSTALL CONVERSIONS, HOW TO RUN THEM AND TROUBLESHOOTING

How to install them:

Open the .zip the conversion comes in: There are 2 types of full conversion:

-Isolated full conversion

This one is plain simple: Drag the single folder to your redist (Amnesia/redist), open the conversion folder and click the .bat. Simple as that.

-Full Conversion (F**k you, why are you so complicated for some people)

Open the .zip. You should see lots of things like:

Billboards
config
entities

Well then: Drag EVERYTHING to the redist. Full conversions are designed to not overwrite the main files, so if a file is overwritten, you did it wrong. Sorry to tell you that.
Then, run the .bat. Everything should go fine.


TROUBLESHOOTING


I have found out how to solve the problem of:

EXCEPTION_ACCES_VIOLATION in module Amnesia.exe at 0023:004A67A8"

THIS ASSUMES YOU'VE HAVE INSTALLED IT CORRECTLY

I've observed that this is a quite common problem around Full conversions, and I'm opening this thread in order to help people who has the same problem:

The numbers of the error aren't really important, what is important is the .log:

Let's use Tenebris Lake as an example. My log
(placed in Documents/Amnesia/tenebrislake/hpl.log) said this: (at the final)

Directories (they are different in each operating system)

Windows XP: "My Documents\Amnesia\"
Windows Vista & 7: "Documents\Amnesia\"
Linux: ".frictionalgames/Amnesia/"
Mac: "Library/Application Support/Frictional Games/Amnesia/"

User Initialization
--------------------------------------------------------
ERROR: Couldn't load language file 'tenebrislake_config/tenebrislake_lang/spanish.lang'
ERROR: Couldn't load language file 'tenebrislake_config/base_spanish.lang'
ERROR: Couldn't load language file 'tenebrislake_config/tenebrislake_config/base_english.lang'
ERROR: Couldn't create font 'menu_gui_default.fnt'
ERROR: Couldn't create font 'menu_gui_default.fnt'
ERROR: Couldn't create font 'menu_gui_default.fnt'
WARNING: Could not find language file entry 'Continue'

Now, what you have to do is to:

Go to the same place:

Documents/Amnesia/tenebrislake/

There, there will be a .cfg file named main_settings.cfg.

It looked like this (for me)

<Main ShowMenu="true" ExitMenuDirectly="false" SaveConfig="true" DefaultProfileName="dev_user" StartLanguage="spanish.lang" UpdateLogActive="false" LoadDebugMenu="false" ScreenShotExt="jpg" ForceCacheLoadingAndSkipSaving="true" ShowPreMenu="true" />
<Graphics TextureQuality="1" TextureFilter="2" TextureAnisotropy="16.000000" Gamma="1.500000" Shadows="1" SSAOActive="true" SSAOSamples="16" ShadowQuality="2" ShadowResolution="2" SSAOResolution="0" ParallaxEnabled="true" WorldReflection="true" EdgeSmooth="true" GBufferType="0" NumOfGBufferTextures="3" OcclusionTestLights="true" Refraction="true" ShadowsActive="true" ParallaxQuality="0" ForceShaderModel3And4Off="false" PostEffectBloom="true" PostEffectImageTrail="true" PostEffectSepia="true" PostEffectRadialBlur="true" PostEffectInsanity="true" />
<Engine LimitFPS="true" SleepWhenOutOfFocus="true" />
<Screen Width="1024" Height="768" FullScreen="true" Vsync="false" />
<Physics PhysicsAccuracy="2" UpdatesPerSec="60.000000" />
<Sound Device="0" Volume="1.000000" MaxChannels="32" StreamBuffers="4" StreamBufferSize="262144" />
<MapLoad FastPhysicsLoad="false" FastStaticLoad="false" FastEntityLoad="false" />

What you have to do is to change the StartLanguage, so it looks like this:

<Main ShowMenu="true" ExitMenuDirectly="false" SaveConfig="true" DefaultProfileName="dev_user" StartLanguage="english.lang" UpdateLogActive="false" LoadDebugMenu="false" ScreenShotExt="jpg" ForceCacheLoadingAndSkipSaving="true" ShowPreMenu="true" />
<Graphics TextureQuality="1" TextureFilter="2" TextureAnisotropy="16.000000" Gamma="1.500000" Shadows="1" SSAOActive="true" SSAOSamples="16" ShadowQuality="2" ShadowResolution="2" SSAOResolution="0" ParallaxEnabled="true" WorldReflection="true" EdgeSmooth="true" GBufferType="0" NumOfGBufferTextures="3" OcclusionTestLights="true" Refraction="true" ShadowsActive="true" ParallaxQuality="0" ForceShaderModel3And4Off="false" PostEffectBloom="true" PostEffectImageTrail="true" PostEffectSepia="true" PostEffectRadialBlur="true" PostEffectInsanity="true" />
<Engine LimitFPS="true" SleepWhenOutOfFocus="true" />
<Screen Width="1024" Height="768" FullScreen="true" Vsync="false" />
<Physics PhysicsAccuracy="2" UpdatesPerSec="60.000000" />
<Sound Device="0" Volume="1.000000" MaxChannels="32" StreamBuffers="4" StreamBufferSize="262144" />
<MapLoad FastPhysicsLoad="false" FastStaticLoad="false" FastEntityLoad="false" />

The problem should be fixed now. Have a good time playing Full Conversions! 0/ Smile
