« on: Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 08:11:43 AM »
When I press Create New Server it opens new dialog with Downloading assets and stays there just like in this pic:

How long was it stuck like that?
That's some Mac, right? Did you try running it as an admin/super user? Other than that, I'm not sure I can be of help. Never used a Mac, personally.

In "Specify download server" choose "AAO25.com" close the app and try again.
It is Linux teddy  :up:

Looked to me like the results I got googling Mac OS at first at least. I guess I have a different distro/desktop environment.

It downloaded from SourceForge after some tries, but now I'm getting this:



I was getting it before too, by clicking anything actually.
In console it says:
Code: [Select]
Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap"
I am running Ubuntu 17.04 (Linux)

Do this:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
If it fails to work then try also:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf:i386

That removed the warning in console! .. but the exception is still thrown (and the app quits as it's critical). I guess it's two unrelated issues. Any other ideas?

Critical error on any action in assist server manager

I get this error by doing basically any kind of click anywhere, then it just quits without further warning as soon as I click OK.

I am using Ubuntu 17.04 Linux, with Mac theme.

I moved it to new topic as it's a separate issue.

Sadly I'm not a Linux user and personally I don't have nothing in mind that could help you at all.
Have you tried to Run the app from another location? Run it as a Superuser?

Yes, tried, didn't work, although I get different output in console when using sudo or not. Without sudo I get:

Code: [Select]
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge"
GLib-GIO-Message: Using the 'memory' GSettings backend.  Your settings will not be saved or shared with other applications.

Surely there are people running server on Linux, no? I have seen some servers mention it.

Googling your error message led me to:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/548557/how-to-install-gail-and-atk-bridge

While the post is about 14.04, the accepted answer said they experienced the same problem(s) in 16.04 which means it's possible it is still the case in 17.04

Most likely you're running 64bit Linux, but AA is a 32bit application. So therefore, I'd postulate you need to (as on the second and not the first, accepted, answer):
Code: [Select]
apt-get install libatk-adaptor:i386 libgail-common:i386

Thanks, it removed the first warning, but the application still fails in the same way! Any other ideas appreciated.

is it easy to launch a basic server (for map testing) without Server Manager?

Get the dedicated server: https://sourceforge.net/projects/aa25assist/files/Binaries/ldedisrv.zip/download
Extract the files in a new folder, now get this "fix":
http://aao25.com/Possessed/25srvnew-lin.7z
RENAME 25srvnew to "server-bin" and do "chmod +x server-bin"
Edit "AA25.ini" to configure your server as you wish.
Code: [Select]
Now edit the aa25.ini file with your required settings:
nano aa25.ini

Start the Server:
./server-bin GLOBAL map-filename

(replace map-filename with your choosen map, bridge, insurgent_camp, radio_tower, etc.)
(Optional command-line arguments  -Port=1716  -Multihome=0.0.0.0  override settings in aa25.ini)


Additional pb commands can be added by creating ServerMessage.cfg in the "pb" folder and adding them there.

You might have to install this to get it to work:
apt-get install lib32stdc++6 lib32stdc++6:i386
http://aao25.com/wiki/index.php?title=Create_A_Server

OR Open the game straight from the game folder and run it offline.
PATH is: /home/USERNAME/25Assist/System/, run the ArmyOps file.
(I have never run the game like this on linux, so idk if it will work that simple)
While in game press ' or " and type: open MapNameHere, map name should be the real name of the map file as Bridge or Urban_Assault, navigate to /home/USERNAME/25Assist/Maps to see all the map names there.
