Strange, wonder what is wrong with my computer to have this error. I already tried restarting my entire computer.

Which one doesn't work? Both worked for me.


Neither link works for me. They're both "not found".


What browser and system are you on?

This is the CC beta link again:
https://mega.nz/#!7MEX0CIS!8Il2MMg44k5r ... z6k0IoERa0

This is the link without a key attached:
https://mega.nz/#!7MEX0CIS

And this is the key separately:

My browser is Firefox. I'm running Noscript and Ad Block Plus as security plugins. Avast is my primary antivirus and I also run Spybot as well. If any of this means anything.

And the links still don't wok for me :( . Text for the error of the first link:
"File not found

Firefox can't find the file at mega:///#!7MEX0CIS!8Il2MMg44k5ryvotZ5hLFY6w25oqoKTynz6k0IoERa0.

Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted."

The second has the same error, just a different file path.

Using the link on Chrome works for me and I'm using Ad Block Plus and AdBlock. I'm using AVG for my anti-virus but I've used Avast in the past and I don't think that would be an issue.

The first place I'd start poking is with your browser as Naeadil suggested.


Looking at the URL you posted makes me confused though:
"mega:///#!7MEX0CIS!8Il2MMg44k5ryvotZ5hLFY6w25oqoKTynz6k0IoERa0"
The "mega:///..." specifically.
I'm not familiar with that style of redirect. If I had to take a shot in the dark I'd say Firefox is interpreting the URL incorrectly.

It's working for me now on Firefox. Strange why it wasn't before.

I'm able to get as far as the HART tutorial and getting in to the HART before crashing on the CC beta client.

Edit: Tested with all three factions. Crashes on all of them. Because the tutorial locks later missions until you do earlier ones, progress pats this point is almost impossible.

Edit: Hacking the training.bln file with a hex editor let me pass. Change the first value when on the HART mission from 05 to 06.

Edit: I am able to get to the final training exercise with that edit. However, I easily break the scripting for it......

Edit: After two tries, respawning at the tower when it prompts you to is impossible. The game simply does not respond to your clicks and as such, you're stuck.

At least I got to see Oshur (if only for like 10 seconds).

This concludes my test run on the CC test beta offline training.

Assuming all of the different versions of the offline tutorials work the same way, you can unlock tutorials by modifying a file. The file I modified was named training.bin and was found in the installation directory after completing the first tutorial (it may generate after just trying one of them). Continue reading only if you find the file.

I don't exactly know how it gets parsed by the game but, as per instructions from Naeadil, I opened the file with a hex editor. The contents of my training.bin file look like this:

Code: Select all

02 02 00 00 00

I changed the second-from-left pair of numbers from 00 to 02 and that unlocked the tutorials. The first 02 indicates how many tutorials I was able to do myself, I think.
I really should have played around with other numbers in this file but it was already unstable enough that I was happy that whatever I did worked without further game crashes.

A bit late to the party, but awesome work Fate and Naeadil! I'm going to start decompiling these files as soon as I can.

This is great news that we can play the game without a server. That's a big relief.

I wonder if the GM commands are still left in for this old client...unlikely but worth a shot.
