sudden game.dat error...help please!

02 August 2009 - 10:26 PM

I have been working on my own personal mod for quite some time now, and being a beginner to modding, I have only done simple tasks such as adding new heroes and switching up powers. For months now my mod has worked fine, and there have been no problems. But today, after editing a few more details such as healths and commandsets, the mod no longer runs, and I get a game.dat error every time.

Here is a short summary of what I did, if anything could cause the problem please let me know!
I recently tried to follow the "Adding Morthond Bowmen into a mod" tutorial, but being as this personal mod (The New Shadow, i call it) doesn't have a folder, just a .big, i tried to create a folder. I moved my .big into the folder, but I soon decided to stop the tutorial, as I could not find my AssetCacheBuilder. I went back to just play my mod normally, and naturally the regular ROTWK began, because my mod's .big was in a new location. I copied it back(probably a stupid move to copy it), and the game ran smoothly. Today I began editing some more things such as health and commandsets, to find that they were unchanged in-game. I realized that this must be because of my two files bearing the same name, so I checked out the size of both files, and, finding a larger one(with the new edits), I put that one in the "-mod" location. That's when the game.dat began occurring. So now I cant' play my mod, or edit it in any way to test it.

If there are any codes or information that I need to provide, just let me know. I really wish to solve this problem quickly so that I can get back on track working on it.

Thanks in advance,
