DDLC traceback errors. SOLVED

#1 Post by ganggaming25 » Sun Jan 07, 2018 2:41 pm

Hey folks, I'm not good at technical stuff so I'll just post the tracebacks.
Basically what happened was after i finished Doki doki literature club, i went to install a mod called monika after story, when i try to launch the game with the mod i get the following error:
I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.
While running game code: File "game/script-topics.rpy", line 1655, in script File "game/script-topics.rpy", line 1658, in <module> WindowsError: [Error 3] The system cannot find the path specified: 'C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\RenPy/.'
-- Full Traceback ------------------------------------------------------------
Full traceback: File "game/script-topics.rpy", line 1655, in script File "D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Doki Doki Literature Club\renpy\ast.py", line 814, in execute renpy.python.py_exec_bytecode(self.code.bytecode, self.hide, store=self.store) File "D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Doki Doki Literature Club\renpy\python.py", line 1719, in py_exec_bytecode exec bytecode in globals, locals File "game/script-topics.rpy", line 1658, in <module> WindowsError: [Error 3] The system cannot find the path specified: 'C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\RenPy/.'
Windows-7-6.1.7601-SP1 Ren'Py 6.99.12.4.2187 Monika After Story 0.6.3

So after that i found out i needed a save file (all of mine got wiped after i finished the game and uninstalled it for a small amount of time) for the mod to work from some people on the r/ddlc subreddit, so i went to get a save ingame and the following error pops up when i try to save:
I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

Other info about my pc:
GPU: gtx 1080
CPU: i7-4770
Mobo: Z87-G41
OS: win7 pirated
Someone on the discord tech support for the mod told me it has to do with Ren'Py not recognizing file structures on my pc, and recommended i try these forums, so i hope one of you are able to help me.

I would try to uninstall then reinstall everything from the start, then creating a save file before installing the mod. Also, make sure ren'py and Doki Doki Literature Club have the necessary permission the write in D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Doki Doki Literature Club\save (or something like that), possibly by executing it as an administrator. Also, is your system in English, or a similar language? If not, like for example if it is in Japanese, this might be the cause as I believe ren'py have difficulty with path in non native system character.

Also, steam tend to automatically check for inconsistency in a game files, and also often do automatic back up of the game saves. You might want to try to disable both functionality for the game, or try to get the original from another source.

Last, but not least, it seems unusual that the path for the game, and Steam, is directly in D:/ and not in program file or something similar. I don't think that would be a problem, but if nothing else work... Also, using a pirated version of windows... well, I guess that might not help either, but if the game used to work fine before, that's probably not a problem.

I'm not an expert, but this is what I would try first.

Thanks, for the help, i fixed it by renaming my user files and username because it had some special characters that aren't in english, and that fixed it.
