Game Can't Open /units.pck File
Posted 07 March 2006 - 08:34 AM
So, the problem is: i try to land near ufo, or alien base (i think, it doesn't matter) and the equipment screen doesn't appear. Only the message "can't open /units.pck file". Then, after pressing 'escape', the results of a previous mission are displayed and game continues. It happens randomly, I had this bug on ufo's, base missions, terrors. CE-version sucsessfully started the battlescape, but there were too much bugs, such as sounds of human and alien deaths when I end turn, alien weapons on the ground, e.t.c.
I use UFO with 1.4 official patch + voice patch.

Usually the bug you described ("can't open /units .pck file" message) is not a bug at all, but the consequences of altering the contents of the files on the /units folder in a way that they are not compatible with the game. Have you installed any mods or altered the files? If you have then there's your problem.
There are other things from what you mentioned that don't seem right:
- You say you are using UFO with 1.4 patch. Well, the CE version already includes 1.4 patch. It might not be wise to install 1.4 with CE...
- If you are running DOS 1.0 you don't need the voices patch. Also I don't think the voice patch was designed to run with the DOS 1.4 version, but i am not sure of this one.

No I haven't. I used only voice patch to have old x-com sounds, because I've patched my 1.2 ver game(or 1.0?) to 1.4.
Have you installed any mods or altered the files?
I tried to load this buggy save gave both in CE and DOS-versions. But the result was the same. I could see the battlescape in Ce-ver., but it was buggy...
I tried to save game in battlescape in CE-version and load it in DOS-ver, but this didn't help...
I continued to play and now I have 2 places with this bug: alien base and shot down UFO.
