Too Many Errors to List..

Nothing was wrong until recently, when I added an addon to the workshop.vdf file and I starting getting a crap-load of errors. I removed that addon but from the server and workshop.vdf but I still get this:

Edit: Pastebin’ed it to avoid wall of text

It doesn’t load any of the workshop.vdf addons obviously because of whatever is causing that specific error.

And I apologize for that monster of a wall of text.



KeyValues Error: LoadFromBuffer: missing { in file workshop

workshop.vdf

“addons”
{ <-- do you have this?
“1” “blablabla”
}

Yeah, I double-checked. I saw in another thread with a similar problem but only the problems with workshop, he said to try remaking it. I did that and still get it

Do you have any addons in workshop.vdf? I got the same error when I only had:

“addons”
{
}

and nothing between the braces.

I have a bunch of addons. I have all of the addons I had before it started messing up.

Could you post what you have in that file? Maybe there’s something wrong with the formatting, idk.


"addons"

It looks fine to me. Maybe you could change the numbers so it doesn’t skip any, like instead of going 1 2 3 5, make it go 1 2 3 4 5 6 etc… It shouldn’t make a difference anyways, but you may try.

Meh. Tried that and no improvement.

I think I found your issue. It might be the encoding of the workshop.vdf file. Try saving it with ANSI or Unicode and it should work.

I tried both formats in brand new files and now my error list is a lot shorter, just:


KeyValues Error: LoadFromBuffer: missing { in file workshop

but now I’m getting literally more than 1000 lines of those random-seeming numbers
