so weird, i just did a clean install on a new pc with the current launcher and everything worked like a charm, didnt even get that "wrong location. dumbass" - message   Roll Eyes

Their issue was the updater crashing as soon as all files were updated and they'll hit 'launch'. That's all they gave me.

Scumbag Volski lures everyone back with promise of steam release... then never actually does steam release.

10/10 ruse I fell for it.

Hi,

Sorry about the delay. I managed to get your app to launch, here was the procedure:

- Your app had been installed through Steam, with the same error on launch
- Downloaded the AutoUpdater from your website (http://www.europeinruins.com/EiRR_Setup.exe)
- Installed to "../Steam/steamapps/common/Company of Heroes Relaunch/"
- It created a folder in /Company of Heroes Relaunch/ called "/Company of Heroes/" and installed there
- When launched, received the error "This was installed to the wrong location, please move to the CoH folder"
- Moved all the files to /Company of Heroes Relaunch/, replacing 165 existing files (from the Steam version)
- Launched again, the AutoUpdater required/downloaded 49 new files
- App now launched as intended

This leads me to believe that the Steam version is somehow different from the non-Steam version. The first thing that jumps out is that the website's file is 441 MB, while the Steam download is 80 kB. Perhaps some files are not downloaded by the Steam version's AutoUpdater?

Cheers,
Zac

Thanks for the reply, Zac.

I spent the afternoon troubleshooting the issue with an old dev of ours, Xeonis. He had me try using just the AutoUpdater and RelicCOH.exe (the "wrong folder" error occurs when the Updater can't find RelicCOH.exe within the same folder).

He had me place both the Updater and .exe in the same folder, and I then ran the updater. It's the standard 80 kb one--the larger file that you found on our site is our old EiR_Setup.exe (it's been so many years since I had to set up the mod, I'd completely forgotten about it). With only those two files to begin with, I ran the updater and it found 306 files in need of updating (Xeonis got the same result). Once it had completed downloading and updating all of the requisite files, the launcher opened and ran properly. I found the same result using the AutoUpdater that's downloaded as part of our Steam build.

Only receiving 214 files at the end of the day is way off the mark--is there any way to discuss the issue in realtime? Discord, Ventrilo, or even a screenshare program of some kind to try and figure out the problem--something seems to be getting lost in translation in these PMs/messages.

Here's a link to a Youtube video that I recorded, showing proof of functionality upon download from Steam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMnOThiKXkM&feature=youtu.be

Hi,

Sorry, I was unclear about the files downloaded - I also receive a notice to update 306 files when first launched.

After installing both launchers again, I determined the cause of the crash - Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 2.0 is installed with the web version, but not with the Steam version. Please include this prerequisite with your app, using an install script: https://partner.steamgames.com/doc/sdk/installscripts

Let me know if you have any questions on setting that up.

Cheers,
Zac

Any art or media requests you need help with for the release volsk? I assume yourself or xeo can write the scripts.

I have a bunch of screenshots to write new text for. Conti will likely be the one helping out with the script; that sort of thing is beyond my level of expertise.

A massive problem that Shermanator had when he tried to play the mod (other than being led into battle by General Crimson) was that there were no worthwhile and up-to-date guides on "how to build a company for dummies". So get on that bois 8-)

lol.... so typical Eir community. Everyone is in a hurry to get something to the public without any planning or making sure it is public ready. This whole "we will tweak it later" is why this mod continues to be a small boys club and not what it could have been. To bad really......

Other than how doctrine selection works, tank's video tutorials should still be fine. Unless you want vids about making "good" companies, but then that all comes down to opinion and personal preference.

I can only manage so many things at once. I trust the community to come up with competently-written guides; my play is too conservative to serve as a good basis for truly great EiR play anyway.

I choose to focus my efforts on the Steam page, communicating with Steam, and preparing the art, promotional screenshots+text, the launcher, and so on as best I can. There is no plan to tweak it later--I want the mod ship-shape before release. So, by God, we're going to make it ship-shape.

If you have suggestions on how to better-plan the release, please share them. Anything to make the process easier, anything to reduce my workload--I am all ears.

I think you should definitely stay away from telling new gamers how to min/max and spam a company. If that was what you were getting at. If not, apologies.

Conti just submitted the finished EiR built to Steam today. We now await the testing staff's reply.

Can we all take a moment to thank SgtConti btw? The guy came over from the Far East Mod release team and offered to help get us on steam on his own volition.

We had no idea how any of this steam release stuff works and any of the previous devs who got us on greenlight were unable or unwilling to help but this guys who has never played a second of EIR has been getting all this work done behind the scenes simply because he loves CoH and wants to keep the modding community alive.

Hats off to SgtConti.

As ever, thanks for the work Volks, and thanks to Conti too. Hopefully this will bring new blood to the mod.
