Could someone please link me to a current copy of "spyroom.sdl" ... as the one in my Ghen Shard install has zero bytes.
I have tried running the /image flag but to no avail. The "checking files" login window shows it being downloaded, but when I check the file in the wrapper it says it has zero bytes.
Your help would be appreciated.

I guess the file from the moul-scripts repository should work?

Again, I cannot reproduce this situation, all the wrappers work for me, and as far as I know for Deledrius and Christian Walther. All I can suggest, if manually adding spyroom.sdl doesn’t work, is to retry with a pristine copy of the wrapper, letting it set up the files without changing settings.

Thanks Korovev,

Of course, replacing the file did not work. The loader automatically replaces it with the zero bytes version. I really have no idea why Ghen stopped working. All my other shards, both MOUL and tPotS, are working (albeit with the requirement of iTunes running :cry: ).

I am going to try your wrapper and see what happens ....I'll report back later ... I assume that I just download and run the wrapper ... nothing else?

No luck with the "virgin" wrapper ... once again, when I log in, once I get to the writers guild logo black screen it tries to download the spyroom.sdl (which the log in screen already said it had downloaded??) and I get the game crash error.

I guess I have to settle with all the other shards/games and just leave Ghen until the next release ...

Have you tried downloading that SDL file from the repository and naming it SpyRoom.sdl?

(Even on Windows, the patcher re-fetches that file every time. :( )

yes.... and renaming it "spyroom.sdl" (all lower case) ....it still insists on redownloading at the GOW nib updating screen and overwriting it with a zero bytes version

Every "fix" for Cyan's inconsistent naming of the Spy room seems to cause another place to have issues. :oops: :evil: :(

I don't understand why it downloads this file twice ..... once at the grey box checking files window ... then again at the black "nib" GOW updating screen. The first file that downloads has 2 bytes and seems to be fine when I open it .... but the black GOW updater screen then overwrites this with a zero bytes version .... which seems to cause the crash
