Unread post TWX Proxy - Can not create 30k sector games
Hi All,

Strangely as of the last few days my TWX Proxy has decided I can not create databases of size 30k.

I've got existing databases with 30k sectors.

I've got a copy of the TWX Proxy on a different computer that lets me create 30k databases. So identical files as of 2 months ago; still works fine.

Super strange, does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm loathe to copy the other files to my computer as I don't want to break existing databases etc.

However the big game is coming.. so I may have too.

Cheers

Hammer

If you change the TWXProxy.exe you might have to remove the TWXSetup.dat file.
Copy all of the TWX folder and remove the above mentioned file and try that. It's been a while since I've played but this dat file can create random problems. Good Luck!!

One thing I'll add is, TWX tends to start popping up weird errors once you get a large number of databases piled up. To resolve this I generally have to go in and empty out all the games I'm no longer using from the data folder, and while I'm at it I purge all the leftover Mombot and other script files from \twx root folder as well.

Miraculously it starts working fine again.. TWX I think is a bit lazy. "You expect me to remember all this crap, when you aren't even using it? Screw you, do it yourself."

I found this script very helpful in cleaning up old databases.

I was just going to post that batch file written my Archie , the Author of ZBot.

I believe the instructions on putting it in your twx root
and make a desktop short cut of it to launch when your ready to clean house after games.

And if you name your database like : CruncherA
then all the data to be removed by ClearTWX
would look like : CruncherA_Figs.txt , _ck_CruncherA.ports etc.

It shows all the matching files to be deleted.
Then you just confirm to delete files & it does them very quickly.
