General Data/Shader/#.fx not found Fix 1.1

Data/Shader/#.fx not found Fix

  1. skullz613
    Update: Version 1.1

    Altiris mentioned it could be the #building.fx file that's missing so the patch has been updated to 1.1 with the #building.fx re-named to #.fx
    What we really need to do is find the model that's causing the error.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Have you seen the following line in your logs?

    GRAPH3D EffectFactory.cpp ( 323) Error Fx file <Data/Shader/#.fx> not found. Switching to default.

    The file #.fx does not exist in the games folders and it's possibly a mistake somewhere in the games code.

    What I did a few months ago was copy the #default.fx file and renamed it #.fx. I created a folder called shader in my Data folder and put it in there. The errors stopped.

    Download the patch and try it out.

    this has been persistent in my cxl logs. error of this kind was posted in the "old trafford stadium" mod's discussions (http://xlnation.net/threads/old-trafford-stadium.1825/) way back.

    finally, after testing, the error has gone, log is clear of any shader issues. my cxl runs smoothly, as expected.

    thanks a lot man, excellente!
