View Full Version : My GRAW has died!!!
09-18-2007, 01:43 AM
GWAR was working really well, until I installed a map i needed. The download worked fine, but I saw another map I needed (defend the alamo), I thought I'd download that, too, before restarting the game. For some unknown reason, the download didn't even start, then died.
Now, whenever I start the game, I get an error message > "Crash in application version: grpcrc1.35
Archive::checked_read() Attempt to read past end of archive 'custom_levels\defend_the_alamo.bundle'
I uninstalled the game completely, to see if it sorted it out, and it was working fine, until I went to multiplayer and realised I needed to download the 1.35 patch again.
I did this and then the error message came back!!! I've tried downloading the map bundle and putting it in both the 'bundles' and 'custom_levels' folders, but neither has worked!
I feel like a small piece of me has died! > Please help!!!

This looks like a bad uninstall.
After uninstall use a programme called cc cleaner to clean up after.
Also leave the game in stock mod for a while make sure its ok before installing any mods.
Check with the mod maker too make sure there are no issues with it.

I uninstalled from the disk, itself.
I'll have a bash at removing it (and the patch) through control pannel and see what happens...

uninstalled the game and the patch, told it to delete everything, used CCleaner to clean up the registry and everything else and still getting the same problem> original game's fine, but when the 1.35 patch's installed, the game won't load and still gives the alamo error message (above)!

Hi I have done a bit of research on this and came up with this post it seems the map is a bad one to use looking at the feedback.

I went into the registry itself (after the uninstalls) and deleted everything graw-related that I could find, but I'm still getting the same message. There must be something in there that's referring to the map, even though it didn't even download.
I've now tried several uninstalls/reinstalls but can't get the game to load, after i install the v1.35 patch.
Does anyone know where the instruction to load the dodgy alamo map might be?
