Default SiN crashes (Steam)

have installed SiN 1 and I am playing through it.

My Valve account is set up to use French, so it downloaded the french version of the game.

In the second level of the chemical complex, immediately after blade takes a lift down, the game aborts to the console with the following text:

"ERROR: Game error:Line 296 is incomplete while reading string in file dialog/dialog_chem2.scr"

I cannot go any further than that.

What should I do?

You could try validating your files. Right-click SiN 1. Properties>Local Files>Verify Integrity of Files

If that doesn't work, it might be a bug.

Thanks for the idea: the file is valid and therefore this is not the problem.

Where could I find the file the console refers to, I mean on the HD?

I'm changing my account to French to try to reproduce this. It will take me a few hours before I can offer advice.

This fix is UNSUPPORTED for now. Please try it, and if it works, I'll get a supported patch out.

First, download this file: http://www.romsteady.net/sinfiles/dialog_chem2.zip

Unzip this file, and you'll have a script file (dialog_chem2.scr).

In your Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/[username]/sin 1 folder, create a "base" folder.

Inside the base folder you just created, create a "locale" folder.

Inside the locale folder you just created, create a "fr" folder.

Inside the fr folder you just created, create a "dialog" folder.

Copy the dialog_chem2.scr file into the dialog folder you just created.

If it works, let me know.

Update: There was one other script file with the same problem that has also been fixed (dialog_gorge_cinema.scr). I've added it to the ZIP file listed above. Put it in the same folder.

Now, that is quite incredible support :-)

It worked, but I had to:

- Follow the procedure you detailed in another thread to remove the "Steam test app 1313" directory, where Sin files had been initially installed.
- Follow the procedure you detailed in this thread to apply the patch.

This solved the issue. Thanks for fixing both scripts.
