MOHAA Debian 3.1, Install failing when inserting 2nd CD.

Post by tijn » Sun Jan 22, 2006 15:00

Hello,

I recently bought MOHAA Warchest.

So i got the US Installer and tried to install it.

First it asks for CD2, this goes alright.
Then it asks for CD1, so i insert it, mount it, and he keeps asking..

After doing some research i found out my version of MOHAA Warchest is a Dutch version adn this might not work with the US installer. ATM iam going to try the other installers (german french etc.)

But i thought it would be handy to post my ls -l, so here it is.

Well!

I tried the UK installer, it WORKED!!, only thing now is, ive got a dual screen, and the game starts in the middle, anything i can do to make it start in a window, or on my left screen?

Also, as it beeing a dutch version, i have no text in buttons.. this is not important though i will find out the functions.

Thnx in advance

looks like a mix of a uk and a nl version

plz send me data1.hdr from cd1 (kratz00 at liflg.org)


I think your screen problem has nothing to do with the game it self

Ok send it :)

thnx for helping,

about the screen problem you are right, atm ive made another xorg.conf for just 1 screen, it a lot of swapping but it works (is there a way to play mohaa in a window?)

Well i can play the game, 2 more problems..

1. Cant join a multiplayer game, it start loading the map and exits, tried a little stuff and found out that if you start a multiplayer server. exit it, and join a game with the same map you created. it works! (i think it writes some stuff in a file..) i thought i mention it maybe its helpfull for other ppl.

2. when i play, randomly my whole pc freezes and i cant do anything anymore, i dont have an output cause i cant do anything and have to reboot hard. (no ssh, just nothing)
when it freezes i heard an monotone beeping sound (beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep)

Iam trying to find out, if there is an reason why it happens (specific sound etc,)

Thnx in advance

my fault i checked again it's looks like a complete dutch version but with english documentation

for this version you will need a completely new installer

can you confirm the version you own is already 1.11?

and why is it called warchest?

tijn

Post by tijn » Mon Jan 23, 2006 10:04

Its 1.11 alright.

Its called warchest because its an collection edition: MOHAA + Spearhead + Breakthrough

actually its just the game + 2 expansions. nothing wierd here

Regarding your post, i assume you are going to make an dutch installer?

if so and you need any help on witch files there are and stuff, you can mail me on the address i used to send you the file.

Thnx in advance

Thank you so much! it works, i can see all the text, just llike i should see it :D

Btw, you might want te rename it. if ppl see "warchest edtion" they are going to think spearhead and breakthrough will work too.

Well there is only 1 problem left atm. it still hangs randomly :( (with the beeping sound)

it doesnt matter if it is singleplayer of multiplayer :(
is there a way i can redirect the console output to a file? so i can see where it went wrong after a reboot.

Again, thank you!!

you think so? i just wanted to make clear this installer won't work with the dutch retail version of mohaa and also an installer for spearhead or breakthrough would have a completely other name, i think it's ok
