I'm getting an error in the MainStrings.txt that said:

"Could not find field:"

"DC_Dlg_Game_Options 64" in record "Main Record".
"DC_Dlg_Game_Options 65" in record "Main Record".
"DC_Dlg_Game_Options 66" in record "Main Record".
"DC_Dlg_Game_Options 75" in record "Main Record".

Doing a little research I found the missing chunk of code in the original SEV MainStrings.txt file:

DC_Dlg_Game_Options 64 := Display Speed Improvements
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 65 := Show Column - Orders (Ship List Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 66 := Show Column - Cargo List (Ship List Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 67 := Show Column - Abilities (Ship List Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 68 := Show Column - Components (Ship List Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 69 := Show Column - Facility List (Colonies Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 70 := Show Column - Cargo List (Colonies Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 71 := Show Column - Races (Colonies Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 72 := Show Column - Orders (Colonies Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 73 := Show Column - Abilities (Colonies Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 74 := Show Column - System Wide Abilities (Systems Window)
DC_Dlg_Game_Options 75 := Show Column - Sector Wide Abilities (Systems Window)

I'm wondering, why was it removed and how do I get the Gritty Galaxy version to work? (I'm assuming I probably missed something in the installation... Embarassed ...but I don't know what Rolling Eyes )

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

GG is a rather old mod which hasn't been updated in a while, probably not since those fields were introduced. Copying them from the stock files should fix it Smile

That's no space station - it's a spreadsheet!

Just copying over the file may cause some confusion during the game.
For example, I renamed the "slow build" tag to say "emergency build", since I flipped the two. (You've gotta save up time on slow build first, then you get fast build later when you toggle slow off)

If you paste the missing strings into the mod's version of the file it will work better.

I'll have to go and make an update sometime.

Thanks, guys! That worked like a charm! (is that too cliche? how about a sonic screwdriver then? Wink )
