PRJ not loading

Post by Von Cory » 21 Jan 2012 15:08

Recently I changed computers and operating systems, from XP to 7 (which was probably not the smartest thing to do in retrospect :-P ).

After copying the files across the editor comes up with 'arg list too big' as expected, but when I choose the .was file it crashes to desktop. I found that my much older saves still work, but any newer saves have this problem, even when I was able to open them on XP.

Could it be something to do with the file size (e.g. the biggest prj I can reload is 1735kb), and if so how would I fix it?

Any help would be much appreciated :)


Thanks.

It probably has to do with Windows 7 security features.
The best solution is to install TRLE in your Documents folder.

Thanks for replying :)

Unfortunately this is not the problem. When I copy the files over to 'My Documents' I get the same problem. Also, when I load the prj of a different level (also much smaller file size) it works fine.

You can't just copy the files over. You have to do an actual install.
It shouldn't have anything to do with the file size. If you could save the file, you can load it back.
Depending on how you copied the files across, you might want to make sure they aren't read-only.
You can also try running winroomedit (and tom2pc and tomb4) in XP compatibility mode.

Or you can download the Vista/Windows 7 multipatch here http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/vista/patch.html
First uninstall TRLE, reinstall in your documents folder, then run the patch. You won't need compatibility mode if you use the patch.

aktrekker, you are a genius!

I tried XP Compatibility mode and it loaded the prj perfectly!

Thanks for your help!
