View Full Version : Can't find file-error:(

15.11.2010, 15:25
I get this error after 3 secs after loading a certain save: (Others don't, have tried)

B: VFILE: Err: -2: Can't find file

What to do??

EDIT: It's for Gothic 1

maybe that save file has somehow been corrupted.

Gothic 1 always crashes when approaching one of the undead shamans.

Solution: Get your hands on the file: download the VDFS Tool for Gothic (http://www.bendlins.de/nico/gothic2/GothicVDFS.zip)
set Root Path to the root directory of Gothic
( C:\Program Files\<Publisher>\Gothic\ )
under Filename open the volume with the file
( MRM are compiled meshes - therefore: [gothic]\Data\Meshes.vdf )
look for the file in the treeview/listview and select it
press Extract Selected
close GothicVDFS
Copy the file where the game is looking for it:
Move the file on your disk ( /_work/Data/Meshes/_compiled/xxx.MRM ) to the directory which is mentioned in the error message ( /_work/Data/.../ ).
( note: create the directory if it doesn't exist already )
( note: the directory is probably /_work/Data/Meshes/_compiled/ITRW_2H_ORCSTAFF_01.MRM)
Have fun while playing Gothic
no comment ;)

I can't find this in the files: MRM are compiled meshes - therefore: [gothic]\Data\Meshes.vdf

I can get as far as : C:\Program Files (x86)\JoWooD Productions Software AG\Gothic\_work\Data\Scripts (Data\Scripts is the only thing in Data)

OR : C:\Program Files (x86)\JoWooD Productions Software AG\Gothic\Data
and then I only get this: OrcTempleFix.vdf (I don't think that is it.)

There isn't an Meshes file.

Then search for it, open the windows explorer (that thing you can open your harddrives, DVD drives and such things), hit F3 (windows-search) and search for that file, if g1 is installed correctly you should find a "Meshes.vdf" somewhere.

It is on my computer ty, do I need to read in it? I need to select a program or find something on the internet for it:(

EDIT: then there's this:

# look for the file in the treeview/listview and select it
# press Extract Selected

What treeview?

Ok, other solution, download and install the IKS patch, here:

I installed it and it worked one time(one shaman) I don't know why I hadn't got this bug with the first 3 shamans, and now I installed the patch I have a problem with
the last, 5th, invincible with normal melee shaman. I installed the patch again while the error was still in my sight, maybe it's that, and I doubt about that,

EDIT: I re-installed the patch, checked the Gothic-root directory after having the error, it was removed...:mad:
I reďnstalled the patch and started the game I got the error as soon I got in his neighbourhood:( after repeating a couple of times it finally worked:) But now I'm against apocalyptic templars:( Found out on the site I need magic§wall I already got the 4th but need the 5th for the 'Rain of fire'
Will I have enough time to cast it?

I have the 5th cicle BTW now. Only need to go to the temple again:(
