The program exited. No error is thrown. It silently 'crashes'.

Do you have a crash dump file for analyzing?

Do you have msi afterburner or a similar overlay? With the last windows update it can crash some DX9 apps 

Dude. :)

Thanks a million! MSI Afterburner interferes with 'PartDatabase.cfg' regeneration.

For posterity: MSI can can be used without incident; but can cause crashes if you are modifying your part list. 

 

Thanks for the help. Y'all are legends. Really appreciate the mods you create.

I'm trying to modify an engine in BDB that has 2 ModuleEnginesFX.

My config:

@PART[bluedog_LR91_5]
[
	@MODULE[ModuleEnginesFX]

		@useEngineResponseTime = False

However the useEngineResponseTime stays true.  I deleted the lines in the part config just to make sure there isn't another config somewhere adding it, and that worked.  So now I just need to get ModuleManager to do it for me.

Check your opening and closing brackets. You are using the wrong type. You should be using { } not [ ]

I've checked both the KSP logs and MM logs. The KSP logs show no errors or anything, neither do the logs from MM. However, by looking at the logs from MM, it seems like MM is ignoring my patch for some reason.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Well your main problem is PART vs Part (it's case sensitive)

But I'm having trouble figuring out what you want the patch to do, if the module exists you'll end up with duplicate moduleID, textures {} and objects {} ... looking at the differences, maybe you want something more like this?

Spoiler

@Part[FS_BiplaneElevator]
{
    @MODULE[FStextureSwitch]
    {
        @textures
        {
            name = Firespitter/Assets/Biplane_01_WHITE
            name = Firespitter/Assets/Biplane_01_GREEN
            name = Firespitter/Assets/Biplane_01_RED
            name = Firespitter/Assets/Biplane_01
        }
    }

There may be more detail in the lines of the whole log above this to figure out where the issues are with each config file.

That's why you need to upload your whole log and post a link to it.  Most mod authors won't even bother to help because it's not possible to determine anything with certainty without the whole log file.  Most of my questions here could have been answered with it.

From what you have, the problems appear to be with the mods Kerbalism, RealFuels-Stockalike, and RealPlume-RFStockalike.  Kerbalism looks to be misinstalled, as its .cfg files should not be directly in GameData.

And if you are running on KSP 1.8, *all* of your mods need to be upgraded to versions compiled for KSP 1.8.  Because of the great changes between KSP 1.7.3 and KSP 1.8, there are very few mods from KSP 1.7.3 and before that will work without fault in 1.8.

You need to remove everything, clear the directory, install KSP 1.8 fresh, then start modding it again with mods upgraded for KSP 1.8 to ensure things work properly.  It's why it's always expected to take a month after a new KSP major release before the mods are upgraded (and thus why to copy away from Steam and use a version under your control).  It's why we've got 1.8.1 13 days after 1.8 (KSP 1.4.x, the last time there was a Unity change, was the same).

It's also why I learned to use modding tools like CKAN and JSGME to manage my mods.

@Jacke: Thank you for your very detailed explaination. I was already aware of most of your points. It might not have been clear enough - I was not looking for someone resolving my problems, just hoped to get a hint how to proceed, when informatation are not enough, or in this case a cache was not produced. My log is 15 MB big, no fun to clean this up.

Back to the topic, I learned a lot last hours:

  • Kerbalism is installed correctly, that cfg is self made and contains a support for Sounding Rocket mod, that one I wrote before Kerbalism actually provided support (which I find less apropriate for my kind of game)
    In that cfg I made a mistake, NEEDS was twice in a line, that broke cache creation and was not circumvented by MM
  • RealFuls-Stockalike often dives that deep in parts configs, that there are troubles with plumes or A.J.E. mod very often as I experienced
  • Until now I worked best without CKAN, just want to keep control of my folder (of course already separated from Steam)
  • And last: I am still cleaning up my 1.7.3 install, so that I will have a more stream lined mod package and thus a fresh start in 1.8.1, especially with my custom stuff, which contains JNSQ scaled by a factor of 2.4 (gives the old Stock 6.4x), partly RO and RP-1 and so on.

I am learning the most when using mod combinations "beyond limits".

So this is a metamod by yourself of Kerbalism.  Okay.

I put my metamods etc. in a tree under GameData/zzzFinal/.  It leaves the GameData directory itself for ModuleManager and the rare few mods that have to live there, which are all special.  And those I put into GameData/zzzFinal/ I manage with JSGME, as I do metamods to mods I install with CKAN.

Hello,

How can I clear the Mod DLL cache?

I got the firespitter v7.14. Uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times,

But the module manager is still loading the older version from the cache,

I got this line in the logs;

Firespitter                             7.3.7240.11089           7.3.7240.11089                                    f239ad8a4ba3ce7a796cd5a6bd037b3d263e01ab8c48ba21aea75e2826abf462

EDIT: I tried deleting

ModuleManager.ConfigCache,

ModuleManager.ConfigSHA

and it recreated these files, but I still have the same infinite loading issue.

Here's the log file if you're interested;

There is no DLL cache. 

RD did not find useful to update the version in the dll so it will keep reporting the same version...

So I'm having an issue with patch syntax (and -yes- I have read the incomplete documentation on the subject). 

:AFTER[JNSQ]
!EVE_CLOUDS
!EVE_CITY_LIGHTS

From the suggestions of others, supposedly the above should work to stop JNSQ from loading its Eve settings. However, it doesn't. It still loads everything and I'm continuing to receive an error that reads that the config itself "contains no data", which I literally have only found one mention of anywhere and it went ignored as part of that users issue. 

And while I'm here, I also wanted to ask in regards to the configs I'm using to replace them. From what I've also been told, I would have to add something along these lines:

 

@Ad_Astra:AFTER[JNSQ]

To each config in order to stop it from being unloaded by the first config. Is this correct? All of the files would be independent configs and not edits, so they would stand on their own otherwise.

You don't have opening or closing brackets for any of those and the syntax is wrong as well.

It appears you’re asking a few things, I’ll try and go over them. 

:AFTER[JNSQ] will cause your patch to run in JNSQ’s ‘after’ round if it is present. It will not run if JNSQ is not present and it will run before LAST[JNSQ]. 

!EVE_CLOUDS {} will remove the top-level node If it exists when it runs. Note the curly braces. The same applies to the 3rd one you listed. 

@ad_astra:AFTER[jnsq] would run whatever comes next only if JNSQ is present, and it will again run in JNSQ’s AFTER round. 

You can see the order of patching in the log file and you can confirm correct results by checking the ModuleManager.configcache file. 

Now whether or not these things are the way to go for what you’re trying to achieve is another story. Why not just remove the EVE configs for JNSQ if you wish to use your own?

I admit that the MM documentation is scattered around the forums and wikis but digging around and asking about unknowns should help. :) 

Considering your post I’m curious as to what you’d like to achieve. That way it’s easier to know what sort of patch you are looking for.

The entire point of what I"m trying to do is to remove the configs from JNSQ, but by using MM to do it and then having my configs load afterwords. The way JNSQ is set up it would be easier for users to just be able to install my mod and be done with it instead of having to hunt down very specific files for deletion. Not everything in regards to Scatterer and EVE would be deleted from the JNSQ mod folder, so to have the users do it themselves would induce a lengthy installation process.

Could you share one of your complete patches and note what your goal is? That would make it easier to help than just repeating the syntax that is out there. 

Things to check: Execute the patch at the right time, properly target valid nodes and values, make sure every node deletion has {} after it and that every value deletion has a dummy value after it.

NEEDS now allows subdirs (NEEDS[SquadExpansion/MakingHistory])

This may have been asked before but regarding the above, is there a limit on the number of sub directories you can specify? As in, is there a reason something like this would be seemingly ignored completely?

:NEEDS[ModFolder/Subdir1/Subdir2/Subdir3/Subdir4]

I can probably get around it since there is another common element I can use with :HAS but figured I would ask.

 

Edit:

Nevermind, coffee kicked in, major brainfart occurred. NEEDS is just checking the folder exists, not specifying to only apply to parts in that folder.

!Scatterer_atmosphere,*:FOR[reasons] {}

Indexed node deletion with a pass specifier.

  1. This should work;
  2. This is currently unsupported;
  3. It's supported, but your syntax is wrong;
  4. Well, actually .. [storyMode.Engage];

Any insight would be appreciated. :)
