I keep getting the following error message.


Quote:

Critical error
001: An error has occurred while initializing the program




I've tried re-ordering the updates on the list so that the DLC is at the top and the game and district updates at the bottom, but that doesn't seem to make a difference.

I notice that my DLC doesn't actually appear on my list. It's just a blank entry. I wonder if it's related to the .G2extension file I downloaded from Gamersgate. Mine's listed as pre-final. Did I somehow get a beta version?

You have to at least get your game to build number(2167) for the Shield of the Prophet DLC to install correctly.
If your Shield of the Prophet DLC downloaded as a RAR file you will have to unpack it to get to the gt2 extension before installing it in your updater.

Yes. I followed Andrey''s steps and installed the latest updates and the game is now running properly for me.

Man, those M113 APCs are just flaming coffins on tracks, aren't they?

Yeah,they don't seem to put up much of a fight before they become flaming wrecks.
I thought they would offer more protection than what I'm seeing in the game.
Thank god I never had to go to war in one of them.

Most Americans didn't.They preferred to ride on the roof,it was much safer.

Also much cooler in a tropical environment,land mines were the biggest threat for the M113 in Vietnam so yeah being on top the APC was more preferable.

I trained with them few times when I was in the US Army infantry and even drove one once during basic training.Almost got run over by one also during a night training maneuver.

My unit-3/7/197 Inf brigade turned mechanized just before I discharged so I never got a chance to get to familiar with them.

A former M113 company commander by the name of "Legion 4" said that the M113's best armor was in the front because that was where the engine was!

I saw a picture of one once that was taken out by an RPG and it caught fire and actually melted into a puddle of liquid metal.
I really don't know much about the M-113 but I heard the armor was partially made up of some kind of aluminum alloy.
Which probably explains why it sucks when it gets hit by anything. boom

YEs the 113 uses aluminum armor. IF it gets hit and catches fire the thing tends to melt. But any apc going up against tanks is pretty much toast. In shield it is SO open that they are at massive disadvantage. Only there infantry have anything able to deal with armor....and not so well at that.
