Copes Toolbox Error

Postby Antandron » Tue 08 Jan, 2019 12:42 pm

Does anyone know how to solve this? I get the message whenever I click to open an .rbf file in Copes.

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

Pretty sure this is just the tool box doesn't know where your plug-ins are. So i cannot open the rbf file.

Did you move your copes stuff around recently? If so there is the problem. Reinstalling Cope's fixes the issues.

I have just tried to get this in my iMac. Since then I am not being able to connect any of the devices with it. My iPod touch got connected with it for a while but it turned up with some ipod touch problems. Now, what can be the remedies for such error? How will I be able to install this in my iMac properly?

I've fixed this error a couple times for people by just handing them my copy of Cope's. I'm not sure if the actual issue is in what version of Cope's you are running, but try using this one:

I'm currently having this issue.
Does Copes need to be extracted somewhere specific?

The plugins folder is definitely present, but nothing 'installed'. It was just a .zip extraction
I downloaded it from here:

Does anyone have a link to the latest working version of Copes needed to access the Elite Mod files?

I get all kinds of errors when using 1.883 to access current Elite Mod files.

Although trying on some older mod files seems to work, so I figured there must be some kind of version/compatibility issue.

Help sincerely appreciated.

Just like others, I'm hoping to just make some very quick changes to existing files to slightly tweak the popcap (and maybe some other things later).

You will get an answer faster by asking at the technical-discussion section of the main Elite Discord.
