Crash to desktop on starting, current and preceding version

#1 Post by Heracliton » Sat Mar 11, 2017 1:18 pm

Latest version - FreeOrion_2017-03-07.efca927_Test_Win32_BinariesOnly - and it;s immediate predecessor crash almost immediately on starting up. Both windows appear, lots of text scrolls very rapidly in the text (secondary) window then both close.

Win 7 Pro 64 SP1, i3770K at stock 63.5 GHz, 16 GB 2133 MHz Corsair Vengeance, 2 x 500 GB Samsung EVO SSDs (Samsung Rapid running on first SSD). Gigabyte Windforce HD9750 3 GB, Radeon 16.12.2 software.

Culprit seems to be "a missing or malformed tech "SPY_STEALTH_3".

Here's the log file for the current build:

You either need to run the full installer or pull the rest of the content files from the Repository.

Only updating the binaries is not enough: Your content/script files are outdated and not compatible with the latest binaries.
If I provided any code, scripts or other content here, it's released under GPL 2.0 and CC-BY-SA 3.0
