# Thread: Geomod Tool for Mapping

1. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

Hey, first off, thanks for all your work.

When I double click Bare Geomod after opening Geomod I get this error message:

"The following file is untraceable: data\text\historic_events.txt.strings.bin

The program will exit now."

2. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

The file is missing in your mod - check the [M2TW installation]\tools\Geomod\M2TW_files\data\text folder and copy the file into your mod.

That worked. Thank you very much!

One more question, did I do something wrong if Bare Geomod won't run in fullscreen mode?

5. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

There is a setting in BG's CFG file that you may have to adjust:
Code:
[video]
movies = 0
windowed = 1
borderless_window = 1
#battle_resolution = 1920 1080
#campaign_resolution = 1920 1080
#tga_width = 1920
#tga_aspect = 1.9
You can either set 'windowed' to 0 (zero) or you can adjust the resolution numbers to your desktop resolution and remove the hash sign in front of the lines.
Set 'movies' to 1 (one ) if you wish to see the intro movies.
The last two lines are related to taking screenshots, for more details about that see here.

thanks again! Something else popped up. When I hit start to begin a new campaign it crashes. Here's the last bit of the log when it crashed. I can't figure out how to upload the whole .txt file. (There's a lot)

07:26:19.544 [system.rpt] [error] Uh oh. This isn't good. No idea why, but exiting now. Sorry pal.

I fixed a few things but now it just gets stuck while loading the campaign and then kicks me out to main menu

2. Long TXT files can be easily compressed (7Zip is freeware) and then attached here via the Go Advanced option, else upload at a service of your choice and provide the link
3. Always describe what you have done since last your mod worked - that will make bug hunting easier.

9. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

So I downloaded it and installed it and when I click on it to run it it brings up a small window saying Browse for Folder, what folder is that supposed to be? I've tried looking on the thread, but I'm the brightest person and couldn't find it, so to help me could you just tell me the name of the folder?

10. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

The manual will be most helpful.

11. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

For some reason reason Geomod crashes at 47% loading when I choose my mod folder and start it. Never used it before, and did not edit any files. Any clue on how to solve this? Thanks in advance.

12. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

Check in the manual - there is a list of percentage errors at the end that should point you into the general direction of the error.

13. ## Re: Geomod Tool for Mapping

I had the cursor on the map problem so after searching this thread I checked "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings." However I now cannot access most of the functions since it is now at a bad resolution and I can't adjust the size of the window. I've tried adjusting my screen's resolution but that didn't solve anything either.
