Yes! Ok Gootool has no more errors, but now when I save and launch the game with my addin installed it crashes with an error. So something must be wrong but what? I can hear the main menu music but not do anything!

For those wondering, Earth of Goo is still being worked on, but not as often. It will be finished! Check out my website/YouTube www.coloradocontraptions.weebly.com !

Have you tried with other mods installed? Perhaps it's unrelated. Try disabling your mod.

There must be something wrong with your MapWorldView, if you have disabled your mod and World of Goo doesn't crash anymore.
What error message do you get from the game?

Not necessarily. It could also be the Distant ball, an image in MapWorldView, an island.xml file, or the FONT_LOADING font.

Ok let me clarify something here, I just wanted to get the demo working first so I haven't added the MapWorldView yet, I will once I get the version with just the island working, but it's crashing without the new MapWorldView! So what could be wrong?

Then it's probably an island.xml file problem. If you email your goomod to AlbinoPokey at gmail dot com, I can take a look at it tomorrow.

Actually, I just found out what the problem is, but its a long story so here goes:

I had my computer crash with problems last month and had to save everything on my hard drive to an external one so I could fix it and replace everything after, then when I recopied world of goo, my profile file got erased so I had to start over the game, but I wanted to go right into modding our game again so I just started modding without beating the original levels first! This resulted in Gootool thinking my newly added levels to the chapters were the original ones in the game for my profile and therefore every time i hit save and launch world of goo from gootool it crashed the game. SO IT ISN'T the Demo mod! It's my profile! after I beat the original levels again, I'll try my Demo Mod again and see if it works. As it is though, THANKS FOR HELPING ME SO MUCH IN THIS PROCCESS!

OK that still didn't help... so here's the game crash error, but at least gootool now likes and successfully merges and uses my addin despite I still can't fix this problem which is caused by gootool itself or my custom game folder profile not my addin...

StackWalk just means a problem interpreting part of a file, or an error within the game itself. It's the most useless error message ever.

Soo... if it's a file error or a game error from within gootool (because I can play the game fine without using gootool except for chapter 2 which causes the crash) how can I fix it?

It means that a file that GooTool created is corrupted or incorrect. Probably a merge.

So is that a file within my goomod or...? Should I send you the goomod to see if it works then or could you help me fix the problem?

I can't use GooTool because of Java problems, but I could take a look at the files.

OK! Which files should I send you? The entire .goomod?
