Mission won't save/saves duplicates

Postby Sykes » Tue Mar 20, 2012 5:27 pm

Okay, I am no expert in DLE-XP. Fact. I'm only beginning to understand the difference between levels and missions. What I do know is that DLE-XP is not saving my level correctly, and there are like 9 duplicate levels inside of my mission file. Keep in mind this only happens in 1.8.116 and 1.9.0. This worked perfectly in 1.8.112, so I assume it's related to the changes in how DLE-XP saves and reads level names.

Can someone open this mission up in DLE and tell me what the heck I'm doing wrong? The only way I've been able to save my mission is to save it as a new mission, and delete the old one. The "Save" function just keeps making duplicate level files or something. I've had to rename my mission about 8 times, deleting the old missions, and then it would randomly crash on save and I'd have to start over.

If someone could take a look at my mission, and even make a few changes and try saving it yourself to see if it works, please do. I don't understand DLE-XP very well in the first place, so I wouldn't know what's a bug and what's an error on my side.

Thank you. I can't make any more missions until I figure this out.

Well, it seems it's not only you as I've also got the problem with 1.19.0.

I will make a Bug report ticket about this issue. :)

Level and mission is often used synonymously. Usually I use these terms as follows:

Level = single rdl / rl2 file (an actual, singular mine)
Mission = Complete set of files making up a playable, errrm, Descent mission, i.e. at least one level and mission file (msn / mn2). Usually the level(s) of a mission is/are stored in hog files. Hog files are simply uncompressed file archives (i.e. files containing complete other files).

The bug was probably introduced together with long filename handling. I will look into it asap.
