Another Dumb-ish Question: How to identify error-causing files?
« on: 2007 April 30, 06:33:19 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Hmm... so, it seems Seasons disagrees somewhat violently with my collection of Awesome hacks, non-awesome crap, and smutty clothing.  (Hey, I only tend to download things that catch my eye... and those are pretty eyecatching, yeah?  And then I wonder why I have no new men's clothes...)

Anyway, Seasons is basically giving me nonstop errors whenever I use a Plantsim.  Other crap doesn't work, of course, but has failed thus far to consume my game in fire or inundate it with error messages.  I could just, you know, turn the debug mode off, but playing the Sims 2 without cheating is like a day without really really convenient sunshine.  (You're tired?  You want to sleep?  Fuck that!  Here, have a full Energy bar.  Go work out more, pansy.)

Anyway, is there any way to see what file is causing the constant barrage of "abort, retry, fail?" messages?  I have several error logs, which show basically this:
Object id: 131
name: G001_User00002 - Rose
Stack size: 6
Error: Invalid constant.
Iterations: 605
...

If the full things would help, I can post them.  There's an assload of variables and suchlike in there that I am feebly incapable of deciphering and no big, red, blinking message saying "HEY, DELETE SmutHax.package YOU GIANT TOOL! Or at least get the new version. I hear it has extra boobs, even.", which would really be helpful.

So... apart from taking out every game-modifying item I have, is there any way to do this?  I don't have a lot riding on this installation... I was just intrigued by botanical sims and the potential to freeze people to death.  So, if you can help me, great.  If I wind up having to re-populate my downloads folder... well, no big loss, I suppose.

Edit:  Durrr... I guess this should probably be in the It's Teh B0rken! sub-forum up there... I am not known for my reading comprehension, it seems.  Oh well... respond how you will, I suppose.

I always have problems with Rose Greenman.  For the longest time, errors were popping up every time she tried to enter another lot (like with the welcoming committee, or just as a passer-by) but was fine when I played her lot.  Huh And then suddenly, last week, it stopped.

In that time, I HAD updated some of my hacks.. Some of the seasons hacks had been updated 2-3 times since I'd first downloaded them. So you might want to start there. Then take out the non-awesome ones.

Yeah, I figured something like that.  I was just hoping someone had written some amazing "Error-Causing File Discoverer!" for TS2.  Kind of like a debugger, except slightly more user-friendly.

I guess I'll just pull out all the hacks and put them back in one by one until I figure out the problem.

Do a search on 'binary hack testing', you might get a pleasant surprise.
