VFX Fangs

Post by Icingblade on Thu Mar 31, 2016 2:24 pm

Last night I was messing around with the VFX options. I tried to put fangs on my character and my client froze and game crashed. I tried to log back in but could not get past the loading screen even though it appeared everything loaded. It was late so I decided to call it a night. Logged in today without problem until I took two steps and my game crashed again. Upon logging back in I cannot get past the load screen again. Not sure if I am missing files or what is going on. Seeking help please.

Thanks,

Icingblade

PS: Was not sure what thread this deserved to be filed under, decided this was as good as any.

And here is what I saw after I reset the server, Icingblade logged the PC in, and then hit the 'rest trigger' in the conjunction...

I am not sure I can fix this...

I think somewhere in the list here will have a command to reset VFX settings to help with this:

Icingblade, what did you do?

In all seriousness, I believe that some or many of the VFX commands were borked in some way.  We've all been on a RL/SWTOR hiatus, and have not yet addressed those issues.

I could, however, be waaaaay off base.  Perhaps Icingblade was a little too enthusiastic about applying said fangs ...

Maybe this command will help.


Spoiler:
;;vfx face none - Remove current facial features.


I just checked in the tool section, and it doesn't look like there is an applicable fix for it.
We might need an The Amethyst Dragon ruling on this one.

Wow. that's very strange. I've never seen an issue like that.

It could be a corrupted model file making NWN throw a fit. The fang VFX models are part of aeneahak_r.hak if you want to try re-downloading.

As far as getting to log in, I'll manually reset the server. Log in, but before taking a set forward, try using the ;;vfx face none command (to remove the variable from your character that marks it for the VFX), then proceed forward. Hopefully you'll then be able to reenter the gameworld proper.

;;vfx face none worked. I am now able to walk the lands of Aenea again.

After a couple glasses of blood, I mean wine, I wanted some fangs really bad. For now I can do without. As The Amethyst Dragon suggested I might re-download that file.

Thanks daveyeisley for coming to my aid and locating the command list. Thanks as well to The Amethyst Dragon and Eric of Atrophy for help and suggestions.

Glad you got it fixed... I knew there was a command, but I haven't had much time lately... and I couldn't actually read through the list to find it.... in better circumstances I would have, but all I could manage at the time was to point in a direction.

I figured that I would write it here, My friend CriticalExistenceFailure has a problem... she tried to get the fangs too and she can't log in anymore, the character that is affected by this is Raza, and we have no idea how to fix this as she can't log in at all.

Friend Karra, when CriticalExistenceFailure tries to log in, does the game give any kind of text box, or an error message, or something along those lines? How far can she get into the process?

Here's what she wrote to me:

"So when I try to join the server, I can get past the character select menu and it loads the game world. As soon as it's done I can see the game for an instant and then it crashes to desktop. No error messages. I know it's because of the fangs as this first happened as soon as I tried to put them on."

Did she try as The Amethyst Dragon suggested several posts up?
The Amethyst Dragon wrote:It could be a corrupted model file making NWN throw a fit. The fang VFX models are part of aeneahak_r.hak if you want to try re-downloading.
Also, is she able to make another character and exit the astral conjunction? It is possible this may be confined to just the character with the fangs vfx applied.

Now, for grins and giggles, I logged on with the only PC I can remember that has a head VFX - Na-gullies Necrasste, she has the skull mask. Everything went okies, no problems there. I'll give it a run with a couple of the other ladies (just remembered that one has glasses, and another has facial jewelry), but I'm wondering if it's just the fangs that are being all messed up.

Alright, I logged in on her account (with the new file) and put in the command to remove the fangs, she will check later if she can log in again, this command should probably be removed for the safety of everyone Very Happy

I would tend to concur. I think either there is a bad file in the hak, or the script command is pointing to the wrong file.

I know my install is good, and this is what I see when I use the ;;vfx face fangs command on my vampire test PC.


At least it doesn't appear to boot me out of the game...

Has anyone noticed any other VFX commands go crazy? So far, I think it's only fangs. I will remove it from the Text Command List at my earliest opportunity.
