View Full Version : can't find database.dbl

I just tried launching the game, and after a short stop on a black screen it just comes up withCritical Error
Couldn't find Database/database.dbl!
Anyone got a fix? This happened after I tried to install the max party member mod, I'd hate to have to reinstall, I've got all my settings exactly as I want them(not to mention characters), I tried deleting the mod, but that doesn't fix the problem either.

Any ideas?

PS: if it makes any difference I'm running the game under wine.

EDIT: doesn't matter, I reinstalled and(which is most amazing for a windows game given my experiences in the past) it didn't overwrite the options, so game safely restored.

Apparently I'm too slow.

What that error means is that it can't find a critical database file, which usually means the executable is running from the wrong spot compared to the assets or one of the zip files has gotten corrupted some how.

Yeah, as you found out our install doesn't touch your characters or your user.cfg file, so it's pretty safe to reinstall.
