Title: Unknown update sub-message
Post by: Iridni Ren on June 14, 2020, 02:50:57 PM
This may not be worth reporting, but I saw this appearing in my Chat log:

Unknown Update sub-message

Arawn said he's never seen it, so I googled.

Found this:

And this:

(comment 204 in the above thread)

The latter does indicate it might be a module problem. All far beyond me, but I don't play on any other servers, and my current install is vanilla except for POTM.

Last night I received it 12 times total in a little less than 2 hours of play. It probably didn't have anything to do with me, but:

Where: Blood of the Vine (Company Room or Public Room, whatever the big one with all the cots is called)

When (last occurrence): Jun 14 01:49:47 (Eastern US)

What: RPing and nothing else

What version of the game are you running?

Also, could you check if you are still getting those messages when in that area?

And are anyone else seeing this issue?

Thanks!

What version of the game are you running?

v79.8193.9 on Windows 10

I don't think it's limited to that area. I received it in the Western Outskirts yesterday:

My last Chat log, however, did not have any occurrences.

Well, it may be related to mismatching server and client versions (we just upgraded to .13). In that case, it's likely benign.

Would it be possible for you to try to upgrade to .13 and check how that impacts things?

Probably?

Will give it a try when I next play.

I have never noticed this show up as yellow text, but just checked my saved logs and seem to get the error nearly every single time I play. The furthest back it shows up is from April 10, 2019.

It looks like I have hundreds of logs that include it, though.

Mine doesn't show up as yellow text either. I noticed it when referring to my log to check something else.

A few checks through google has this message come up when trying to load a .mdl for a door for a few players on nwvault custom modules.

Please see OP :D

Maybe its occurring for folk that have outdated Ravenloft/CEP files floating around that mismatch? Either from manual downloads/subscriptions to Steam that are no longer valid for the current module?

It baffles other peops as it is from what scarce little I can see.

My install is as standard as standard can be. It's for reasons like this that I keep it that way.
