Hello. I have been learning modding for a little bit now and am now trying a more ambitious mod which adds a new starting faction to the game. I have used dave to edit many files to implement a new character, create the faction, set the colours, banners, starting items (several ceos files), political party, faction group, and start_pos files. I have so far edited start_pos_characters, start_pos_factions, start_pos_settlements, start_pos_settlment_to_characters, start_pos_victory_conditions, and start_pos_technologies. I ran the initial mod in bob for all the binary files for the Database and Ceos, then launched the game with the mod active. Then re-ran bob with the working_data for main_campaing to create the start_pos. Bob runs fine until it gets through the entire list then gives me this error:
"Startpos file not found after running the game!
Failed to restore original game startpos file! The original file is: C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Total War THREE KINGDOMS/assembly_kit/binaries/../../data/campaigns/3k_main_campaign_map/startpos_backup_historical.esf"
That file directory does not exist in my binaries folder as there is only one folder in there and it has no sub folders. I have double and triple checked my start_pos files for errors and dependencies and am not finding any noticeable errors. Is it possible that this is not running because I am missing the necessary backup file. Or does this simply mean there is something missing somewhere in my tables. I have checked every variable in the nearly 40+ files that I have edited, and I am coming up empty handed for what could be wrong.
