PostSubject: ad1.dat corruption? (SOLVED)   Sun Jun 28, 2015 7:52 am

Sorry in advance since this is a very popular question.

I've been messing around with the code a bit in the last few days and I feel like I'm ready to go to start testing out some things. But, I keep getting the "OGRE EXCEPTION(9): Corrupted Data File in ad1.dat, please run the autopatcher." error. I've looked around the forum quite a bit and haven't found a solution. Either that or I'm probably just doing something wrong.

I have my own xorkey and have made sure to save it, and copy and paste it into the source code. I believe I have encrypted the files correctly, evening naming them correctly by adding the ".dat" at the end of ad1, cd1, and cd2 files.
Maybe I am placing both the unencrypted and encrypted files in the wrong place? They're both in my main "Fates Combined" Folder.

Thank you in advance.

I followed the instructions there but it doesn't seem to have made a difference. I still get the "Ogre" error.

If it's not working then you've either;

- Not encrypted the correct file
- Not encrypted the correct file with the correct key
- Not moved the new file to replace the old file
- You've broke something IN the file meaning it's not converting properly
- You didn't change the key in the source
- You're using the wrong key
- probably some other reasons I can't think of right now but this is an extremely frequently asked question and I can guarantee the answer is in the support / tutorial section if you have another look



EDIT: "adding .dat" what does your files names look like?

ad1.dat.txt or ad1.txt.dat or ad1.dat ?

Go to your FC folder and click Organise > Folder & Search Options.
Click the 'View' Tab
UNtick 'Hide extensions for known file types'
Apply + OK
Close

Now what do they say?

if it says ANYTHING but "ad1.dat" then that's your problem.

Likewise, 'ad1-unencrypted.dat' is NOT the same as 'ad1.dat'. One is plain text one is the coded version. You must put the CODED version in your main game file.

I believe I'm using the right key. You just create your own, right?
I've also made sure that I clicked save and edited the source code to match the key.
I didn't edit anything in the unencrypted/encrypted, so I don't think I've broken it. Unless there's another way to do that?

Looking at the file, it'll just say ad1, but it says its file type is dat.

Would I just need to move / remove the unencrypted file then?

You need to recompile after editing the source. Just saving doesn't let changes take effect.

You mean rebuilding the solution? I've done that a few times. Or do you mean something else?
Edit: when I said I saved, I meant the xorkey, not the source code.

You are putting the ad1.dat folder in the CLIENT folder after you encrypt it, correct? You can't just leave it where the unencrypted files are.

(Client folder where the game application, items.cfg, etc. is)

I was doing that wrong, so I moved it to the client folder and I'm still getting the error. The unencrypted files stay in the main "server name" folder, right?

do not move those files. Only edit them.

And the file just says ad1.dat. And the xorkey is correct?

The file says just ad1, but it's file type is shown as a dat file.
I believe you make up the xorkey? So, I think mine is correct.

I don't think the key can just be anything.

You're suppose to keep everything the same just change the numbers within it. The server password is what you can freely make.

That's what I did. I'll just put up some images, as I'm sure that will make it easier to spot what I did wrong.

Hey. You see in the 4th screenshot?

Check the box that says ".dat file output" in the KITO XOR Encode/Decode thing

Then try

You are inputting the unencrypted ones correct?

When you input the unencrypted file into the encoder, the output should appear in the same folder and you just need to move it to the client folder.


Don't touch the files on the xorkey0.
You shouldn't.

Yeah, I haven't touched the files in the xorkey0 folder. I encrypted the unencrypted again just to see if it would work, but I didn't get a different outcome.

I think it's your best bet to just re download a new client and transfer things over.
What I just noticed is that in your 3rd screenshot it goes ("yourservername" > a bunch of stuff) when the last time I checked its only suppose to go (yourservername > Server and Client)

Unless that was because of the update I don't think some things are in the proper places
