RTE error
I got this game for my son. This is his account. Ive got about 6 mods to install without issues. The rest all have some sort of issue that won't let the game start. I even try to close out Steam and it says that CC needs to be closed. Only way to close it is either restart system or use the task manager and close out Steam.

The latest issue has to do with the Axe Cop mod. It said something about coalition.rte.

Anyone know how to get this mod working or is it just to old?

Here's the exact error.

---------------------------
RTE Aborted! (x_x)

Failed to load datafile object with following path and name:

Coalition.rte/Devices/Weapons/SpinSound.wav

The last frame has been dumped to 'abortscreen.bmp'

I do not see a spinsound.wav file. Not sure if it should be there or not but I don't see any wav files.

The reason it's not in that folder is because it's referencing an existing file in the base game. The problem is that the file's location has changed. That mod[forums.datarealms.com] is like three years old, and was made for a much older version of the game (B23 or B24).

Blah blah, ok, I just messed around with it for a few minutes... and here's how to fix it:

go to:
Steam\SteamApps\common\CortexCommand\AxeCop.rte\Weapons\RobotMachineGuns.ini

Open that file with notepad and look for the line that says:
FilePath = Coalition.rte/Devices/Weapons/SpinSound.wav

Change it to:
FilePath = Coalition.rte/Effects/Sounds/SpinSound.wav

That line is actually in two separate places in that file, and you'll need to replace both instances. One is about 2/3 of the way down, the other is at the very end.

Now it works!

edit:
err.. by "works" I mean it doesn't crash. It's missing a bunch of functionality, and I'm not going to spend too much time fixing it because I don't know how extensive the repair needs to be to make it fully compatible with the current version (and I dont know enough about lua code).

With this fix you're able to ride the dinosaur and it can breathe fire (by holding down arrow) and you can throw a baby (but it won't make anyone explode) (?!?), but I can't test the RobotMachineGun because I can't find it anywhere in the buy menu (and that's where I gave up). You would be better off leaving that mod alone since it's so out of date, unless someone else wants to fix it.

edit edit edit:
This mod looks pretty cool. Someone needs to fix it.

So? Did you get it to work? Have you lost interest already? What's up?

Don't think the game is for children, all the explosive gore... XP

... and did this thread help you figure out how to fix it?

Just got this game today. I guess it isn't exactly the same problem. I was in the game editor and an error occured that presented in a similar manner. Had to validate files to get game to launch without crashing.
