After a several month hiatus of hosting a gmod server, I decided to bring it back online as I have a new server box and a faster internet connection. So everything is installed and updated, and the server is live. I go to spawn a few contraptions and get this:
AdvDupeERROR: CreateEntity failed to make "gmod_thruster", Error: includes\util.lua:71: bad argument #1 to 'PrecacheSound' (string expected, got boolean) AdvDupe: Sending this ErrorMsg to Player [Cornflake] AdvDupe-ERROR: "Failed to make "gmod_thruster"" AdvDupeERROR:Created Entity Bad! Class: gmod_thruster Ent: 111
On every… single… contraption I have saved with thrusters, it spawns and they all fall off, non-functional with the error “failed to make gmod_thruster”. I also tested a few other users’ saves and the same result. Some of my contraptions are as recent as September 2009!
I spent the wee hours this morning doing some testing. The duplicator has recently been updated (to v0.84) and I tested with both the new and old (v1.83) and the same result. I even copied the exact version of Wire that was being used to create the save, same result. The only conclusion I can come up with from testing multiple versions of wire, and the error, that a recent gmod update is the culprit. I even went as far as renaming my old gmod folder, as the protocol goes but it did not change anything.
Anyone else having this issue and feel like ranting? Maybe we can come up with a solution? I will post more testing later after work. What a way to ring gmod into the new year, eh?
