Can't sorry. Gotta cook supper for the family and then promised the kids I would play Ark with them.

Please let me know if you see a pattern to the crashes (or even info about what you are doing at the time when the crash happens).

Copy-Cat (and associate) I may have a bug with that last LR Launcher fix I sent you. I get an error of "startindex can not be less than zero". Will have to look into it.

Update: source of trouble seems to be where I strip the .zip extension. Specifically probably because I have an unzipped folder called M79 and that only has 3 characters. The code was trying to check the last 4 characters of a filename so gave error.

Update: I was correct about the error. Figured out as better way to do the code. Beta Fix 3 uploaded to drop box for Copy-cat.

In this case it was specifically an unzipped mod called "M79".

I re-did the code with a safer method. Also included a filter that ignores any .bak files or .txt files since sometimes I have both in my mod folder.

This morning I built my first test build of the full installer for version 8.0 beta of the mod for public testing.

Before I can release it I have to test the installer locally since it is so much more complex than previous versions.

Update: I immediately found a few things I needed to tweak or fix since they didn't work as expected.

I also discovered 2 things that I have to fix on the Launcher code itself. One is a bug with the launcher that reports you don't have a valid 3D resolution when indeed that you do. Other item to fix is just a duplication of the backup files.

Figured out the one bug but still have to fix it.

I have a laptop that is a little odd and can't do 800x600. Well, it can, but it thinks it can't do that resolution. When I installed a fresh beta copy of the LR mod on this laptop the default chosen 3D resolution was 800x600 as per the info last given in the Swat.cfg file.

The LR Launcher got confused because this crazy laptop thinks it can't do 800x600. Not mad at the laptop though because it helped reveal this flaw.
