  • I have been trying to get the save game editor to work and all it will do is crash. I get these error messages when I load it

    Error: Object variable or With block variable not set (91) in C3MT::frmSaveEdit.frm Line 3493
    SGE: Making Mapsummary
    Error: Object variable or With block variable not set (91) in C3MT::frmSaveEdit.frm Line 3501
    Error: Object variable or With block variable not set (91) in C3MT::frmSaveEdit.frm Line 3508

    After which it seems to work except if I try to use the filter it crashes or if I try to save it crashes. I just tried redownloading it from here but it still did the same thing. What's going wrong and how can I fix it?
    It is easier to be insane and know for sure that you are insane that to be sane and not sure if you are.


    • Seems as if your save fails to load. Could you post it?

      • Ok, but I'm not exactly sure what you want me to post ... do you mean attach the saved game to a message? If so, I can do that no problem, if not then I guess this old brain needs to have what you want explained in simple words [heh]

        • if it's small ennough to attach then do so. Otherwise use the upload feature.

          • Ok, I've uploaded the save file ... but I'm afraid I'm very new to this board and so I don't know the ins and outs of it yet and I'm not sure how to do a link to the file so you can get it.

            • Never mind - I found the answer to my question [I think] now if I have this right, then this should link the file:

              • The last time I played Civ3PTW?... a year or so.

                I tried the lastest version, 1.11.5 (full install version) and I use PTW (1.27f).

                Unfortunatly, when I try to load a PTW save file, it says [ Not a Civ 3] and it crashes. Also, the default laod save games directory is located in Civ3 and not PTW.

                PTW is working fine though. It seems Civ3MultiTool doesn't see it installed. I can't see why!

                I tried to install and uninstall C3mt several times.


                • Can someone post me the registry content of both PTW and C3MT? So I can compare them and see if there is anything wrong with mine.


                  • C3MT registry content isn't that important. Just settings.

                    PTW should have an install_path somehere pointing to the civ3ptw directory

                    • v1.11.6

                      - Added code to eliminate (hopefully) runtime errors due to fail in save load.
                      - Improved error logging in more areas of the code (still not all)
                      - Corrected a subscriptout of range error whan using filter with non-embeded rules.
                      - Removed section searching from GAME datasection in saveload. (This should eliminate some rare cases of files not loading properly due to garbage strings lookingas section tags)
                      - Corrected adivision by zero error that could occur if a save was loaded on turn 1.
                      - Corrected some backward compabilities with old BI*-versions. (Some values got initiated to invalid values, which could cause the tool to crash with division by zero error)
                      - Corrected bug in serialization of zerolength areas that sometimes would cause DataIO save corruptions.
                      - Corrected bug in backwardbompability saving of save headers.
                      - Updated Map import to work with the new save handling code.

                      • I have a saved game that hangs on the next turn, and I cannot figure out why. When I use the SGE, when I go to the cities tab, and choose a particular city, I get a "Runtime Error '13'" Type mismatch. Its a city that recently was captured by another civ.... can you tell me what this runtime error represents? I'd like to figure out how to salvage this savegame.

                        Question Authority.......with mime...


                        • that error most likely mean that some variable fails to be loaded. Either due to unknown information, or an error in the save.

                          • Hi!
                            Just bought Civ3 (yep a slowpoke) and thought I try your tool also but unfortunately I immediately run into problems. I am running verson 1.11.6 under windows XP.

                            Trying to export a map I get:
                            Error: Object variable or With block variable not set (91) in C3MT::SAVE_Map_Tile.cls Line 220

                            This is a fatal error as in locking the program

                            Trying to save a change (or even an unchanged file) gives
                            Path/File access error 75 streambuffer.cls line 833
                            and trying to start a saved file (after ignoring) gives me Data IO operation error PALV.


                            • I don't know what the tool supports, but do get to the latest patch:

                              1.29 for Civ3
                              1.27 for PTW
                              1.22 for C3C


                              • Like vmxa said the chances that later patches work are higher than the chances that earlier does. The backward compability code really neeeds some attecntion.
