    First, I have been modding CXL for almost a year now and have never had any trouble doing so, last night I tried to start CXL and couldn't. I basically just gave up and deleted all of my almost 600 mods and cities. This worked! However, when I went to reinstall UIM, I have found I cannot..?
    The game simply won't start and I have no idea why!
    The first time I installed UIM after deleting everything I got this (taken from log):

    [23:47:31] CORE mcStreamBin.cpp ( 282) Assert This shouldn't happen in release...

    [23:47:34] CORE mcFile.cpp ( 198) Error can't open file data\config\gembeachscenarii.cfg

    [23:47:34] SIMTOURIST pesTourismParams.cpp ( 179) Error pesTourismParams::LoadScenarii : Can't load <data/config/gembeachscenarii.cfg>

    So I completely deleted it and reinstalled it and this time I got this (also log):

    [00:40:14] CORE mcStreamBin.cpp ( 282) Assert This shouldn't happen in release...

    [00:40:16] CORE mcFile.cpp ( 198) Error can't open file data\config\gembeachscenarii.cfg

    Are you using the automatic or manual installation method?

    I was having a similar problem, trying to install UIM and the game crashing. I eventually just gave up trying to use the automatic .exe install and instead downloaded the UIM zip folder and manually copied them into my mods. No problems since then.

    So, install it on desktop, unpack it, and transfer all the files in the 'data' folder?

    Usually the last log line tells you what has gone wrong- it's saying your tags.cfg file is missing the MSNOCOLLISION tag. Maybe for some reason when you reinstalled UIM it did not update your tags.cfg file. or your updating with an older version of UIM.

    I would just do what snick says, yeah unpack to your games /data/ folder, just overwrite/merge existing directories/files.

    The Installer is the best way to install it, just double check the install path and it will be fine.

    unpacking it manually to the game folder makes upgrades messy, best to let windows installer do it's thing.

    Manually putting the files in worked! I have (thankfully) successfully gotten the game up and running

    Yep, UIM works with all versions of the game except the original (2009).

    I started having issues with a couple maps, so I thought I would follow the advise I just gave out and reinstall the UIM. The game crashes on startup. I have tried using the installer, unpacking the file directly into /data, and even restoring what I deleted.

    No beans. I've got a couple nice cities going. This would be a drag to loose them just as I'm going on vacation. Hope you experts can help me. Thanks.

    Looks like something got messed up with the tags.cfg? Specifically it looks like the tag(s) for PJC's seawalls are missing from the file.

    Did you update that file according to PJC's description after you reinstalled?

    For some reason the tags.cfg file doesn't get updated properly sometimes.

    Thanks snick. I had forgotten to do that. But now the game still crashes on loading, and I get this error message:

    BTW - these are all in the folder data/config/tags:

    <StylePJCSW1/> <!-- PJC Custom Seawall -->
    <StylePJCSW2/> <!-- PJC Custom Seawall -->
    <StylePJCSW3/> <!-- PJC Custom Seawall -->
    <StylePJCSW4/> <!-- PJC Custom Seawall -->
    <StylePJCSW5/> <!-- PJC Custom Seawall -->

    I'm not sure about that message. Is it still crashing while loading the game or is it crashing while loading a city?

    At the very beginning when it is trying to load the game.

    The tags look correct. Check to see if you did not accidentally remove anything from the file like the closing bit (</Style>)
    What program did you use to edit the tags file? I use notepad++ for all files apart from when I'm building maps. I use just notepad then otherwise I get errors with the files.

    Hi Skullz. Thanks for responding. I have not made any changes to the config folder, only noted here what it has, which I did access through notepad. The only change I made was to add the tags for the pjc seawalls to the config folder.

    Do you have a back up of your GlobalSettings.cfg file? If so put it back in and remove PJC's mods and see if the game starts.
    I know I had problems with a new install. One was the tags for PJC's mods and there was something else too. I though I wrote a txt file with things for me to remember when I reinstall but I can't find it.

    Thanks, skullz. I thought I did, but I can't seem to find it now.
