Hi all

I have long ditched my plans of getting Book's Bioship working cos of the Syntax Error that was explained in my last thread.

But now it's back on at least one of the four ships I recently installed:

Borg Tactical Defender Voyager type Cube Tactical Cube Victory Star Destroyer

It is shown as the Voyager cube, and is once again situated in the custom/ships file.

I am desperate to fix this, so I am re-installing BC. If that does not work, I am open to any suggestions at all, because my game cannot operate with this error, yet cannot run without those awesome ships!

Cheers

if you already reinstalled, forget it, but if you didnt, dont, it will fix the problem, but youll lose all your mods, if you can give us a console readout or something, it shouldnt be too hard to fix.

I have given a console readout and a copy of a corrupted .py file in my previous post, 'Syntax Error'.

Reinstalling didn't help, and the problem was located in the Voyager Cube and VSD files. Thus, I had to deactivate 2 out of 4 new ships, which I'm disappointed in. The console readout shows a small '^" arrow pointing to a section of the file, which is labelled as invalid Syntax. However, I retyped that section, but no change.

This is really starting to annoy me, because the game refuses to operate because of a problem that's not even there!

did you ever create a 8472 ships menu in bcmp? if so try recreating the plugin and see if that helps.

Have re-created the plugin several times.

No luck. It happens with Star Wars Ships and Borg Ships aswell, which both have several working ships already. I can see no problem in the files themselves. Maybe this cannot be corrected.
