Hi
First time I used GGLoader with AGK on last June just after i bought the Loader it worked fine during initial tests. But now, for some reason it does not work anymore. When I pick some GG example maps like Cartoon Antics and then perform the conversion everything seems to be OK in GGLoader side.

However, when I run the project in AGK it prints "Failed: gameguru/map.ent". And after pressing mouse button I found myself in a world having only cloudy sky and large black rectangle which is probably "placeholder" for the map. And there is no map.ent file, media\gameguru dir is empty

I'm using current versions of GG ang AGK, not betas and having following settings in GGLoader:
GG root\Files folder:
G:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Game Guru\Files\

GG Tmp:
G:\gg\out_temp\

Level:
G:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Game Guru\Files\mapbank\Cartoon Antics.fpm

GGLoader folder:
G:\gg\ggloader\

GGLoader temp folder (AppData)
C:\Users\rela\AppData\Local\AGKApps\ggloader

It just looks like map.ent file is missing whatever I try - different maps etc. G:\gg\ggloader\media\gameguru directory is empty, there is no map.ent. There was actually another thread about similar problem where root cause was not to use proper GG root\Files dir but this is not about it.

Am I doing something wrong or what is this? Probably not a bug because can't see no one else complaining about

Not yet. But if it's right place to ask it then I'm going to try it. Thanks

The map.ent file is in Game Guru located in the
Files\levelbank\testmap folder when you open a map level in Game Guru.

Hi Leo Rela,

If "G:\gg\ggloader\media\gameguru" is 100% empty , it must be a problem with the GUI settings , but they look ok in your post ? , this is a screenshot of my settings, do you get any errors in the "Status" field when you press "Start to convert" ?.

Yes this post is in a wrong thread , so just PM me here , or sent me a email at plemsoft@plemsoft.com , then im sure we have you up and running again in no time

Also make sure that the GUI is allowed to write to the folder , perhaps try to run as Admin.
best regards Preben Eriksen,

It was probably a win10 security issue since I just started ggloader as a windows admin and it seems to work now. Thanks!
