PTA Help Please

Recommended Posts

Folks,

Getting PTA setup in 4.3 and found a cool preset I liked from Thopat. When I try to apply it, I get the following series of errors:

Applying preset E:\pta_2.62\pta2-preset-thopat-2_2\pta2-preset-thopat-2_2.ini...

My apologies for posting all of that, but any idea what I'm doing wrong?

I'm using REX Skyforce and ASP4 as well, but they are not running at the time of trying to install the PTA preset.

Really appreciate any help!

It seems that the Thopat preset is not compatible ...

There are some real issues with PTA presets and 4.3 especially with REX SF. None of the presets are compatible and break cloud.fx each time. I am having to uninstall and reinstall all the time. Even your presets are not working well.

It's mostly fixed, so thank you to GSalden!

 

Shez - yes, still seeing the break cloud error, but will live with it for now...

 

Thanks guys!
