Every time i use arf2 i seem to get problems with it, i've had the minimizing.. crashing etc.. but now even if i try to reinstall it i get the same error, this is what it says *sorted
Here we go... 2013-08-07 21:11:55: Cleaning up 2013-08-07 21:11:55: Looking for the config file 2013-08-07 21:11:55: Config URL taken from ini file 2013-08-07 21:11:55: Downloading config file 'http://www.hgweb.org/arf/arf2-server.ini' 2013-08-07 21:11:55: Error 10: Unable to download config file 2013-08-07 21:11:55: 2013-08-07 21:11:55: A log file named 'arf2.log' has been created 2013-08-07 21:11:55: arf2 will now exit
I know arf2 isnt needed but id be very happy if someone could help me fix this problem. This happens every time i try to install it now.
I don't think there is anything that can be fixed unless you want to edit the Arf2 source code. The way bhao programmed it it quits if it can't download the arf2-server.ini file, which normally looks like this:
So whenever hgweb.org is unreachable Arf2 won't work, it's as simple as that. If you want to modify the source I would suggest saving that file to disk every time you successfully download it and in case it can't be downloaded use the version that's still on the disk.
Ah that error--sorry if I realized earlier that's what you meant I might have made this suggestion then, cause I did the same thing last time I installed on new comp, realized my mistake though
I could be wrong but I have an ARF2 folder, within the NWN directory. I cannot recall very precisely if this solved that issue for me, but I do remember definitely having that same error until I did some simple re-arranging and everything worked fine.
Try giving that a shot maybe?
Also, I could see most from your screenie but not the S+ filenames; just to be sure, double-check that you have all the different components of the arf install there in the same directory.
Edit: Well Vich is the master so, I'm probably not on the right track.
However I will note that he is unable to successfully progress past the log file check, even when someone else (like me, right now) can successfully communicate with whatever is needed to have the program run completely. Thus I wonder if there is more of a keyboard-end issue--especially since he said it was working fine up until he re-installed it.
