Menu Replay not working in packed title

Post by Florenzius » 13 Mar 2019, 16:52

I'm Experiencing something weird. Whenever I put a background replay for a pack in the folder and inject it, it's shown and working as menu background in the pack edit mode. Though when the pack is compiled and entered, the replay is not shown and it will use the jpg pack picture as background. Has someone had the same and found a fix? I tried like 100 replays with different maps, cars and names and it has the same result. Ofc, no cars or anything else is included. There's no error or something else. :oops:

You're not using a title maker, right?

If I enter the following entries in the ManiaPlanetTitle.xml:

<menu>
<background_img name="MenuBg.dds"/>
<background_replay name="MyTitle\MenuBg.Replay.Gbx"/>
<header name="MenuHeader.png"/>
<music name="Menu\MyMusic.ogg"/>
<manialink url=""/>
</menu>

And move my Replay from this folder:

ManiaPlanet\Replays\MyTitle\MenuBg.Replay.Gbx

Into this folder:

ManiaPlanet\WorkTitles\MyTitle@login\Replays\MyTitle\MenuBg.Replay.Gbx

Then it works for me. How do you do it?

I am using the original editor, yeah.

What I did was having the replay file in the Replays/ folder in the pack work folder and referencing exactly the same in the xml.
It always worked in the edition mode and was shown.
Now I tried to put the replay in a subfolder of Replays/ and also changed it in the xml, no result.

After packing it uses the image instead:

Snippet of the xml

Code: Select all

	<menu>
		<background_img name="MenuBg.jpg"/>
		<background_replay name="Menu\MenuBg.Replay.Gbx"/>
		<header name="MenuHeader.png"/>
		<music name=""/>
		<manialink url="Scripts/Libs/Nerpson/Startup.Script.txt"/>
		<!-- Scripts/Libs/Nerpson/Startup.Script.txt -->
	</menu>

Code: Select all

	<folders>
		<folder name="Maps\" public="false" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Scripts\" public="false" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Replays\" public="true" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Items\" public="true" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Materials\" public="false" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Blocks\" public="false" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Media\" public="false" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Skins\Models\CarCommon\" public="true" internal="true"/>
		<folder name="Skins\" public="true" internal="true"/>
	</folders>
(my bet it's a packing issue)

No clue... :|

--Update--

I've had a look in the UGCErrorsLog.txt which had the following line
"Packs\TMOneAlpine@florenzius.Title.Pack.gbx", file "MenuBG.Replay.Gbx": Unable to load menu replay.

I have no clue why it's this case. I could be able to send the replay in case someone wants to look inside but all I have is a mod, a lot of items and nothing else. It should work normally. Also the map in the replay is playable and validated.

Got it to work somehow: I replaced the start & finish items by blocks and deleted custom blocks from the map.
