FAF crashing during loading screen

0

Evening!
Sadly I cannot start up my FAF games anymore, whenever I try to host or join a match, after the loading screen comes it crashes in 10 - 20 seconds and leaves the following error log:

(I already tried to reinstall it, bought it in steam and connected it there to those steam related game files, before I used an old FAF installation from one of the first game DVDs when it came out over a century ago, then I reinstalled FAF, but nothing seems to help. The Issue is not account related, as on my desktop PC it works fine, just on my laptop it does not work...)

I would be sooo happy if somebody could help me, or tell me which files to reinstall, delete or replace, what to do delete during a fresh installation etc. Must be some crappy leftover files or something weird. Just don't want to reinstall all of windows...

Thanks for the help and have a nice weekend!

@gany, I guess you installed a mod which broke FAF:

Hooked /lua/platoon.lua with /mods/ai-uveso-master/hook/lua/platoon.lua
debug: Loading module '\000/mods/ai-uveso/lua/ai/uvesoutilities.lua\000'
warning: Unable to find file /mods/ai-uveso/lua/ai/uvesoutilities.lua
[...]
warning: Error importing /lua/platoon.lua:
Error importing '/lua/platoon.lua'

You should be able to fix this via the client using the button "Manage active mods" - deselecting the mod in question:

You installed the Ai Uveso mod from Git Hub directly:

/mods/ai-uveso-master/lua/ai/platoontemplates/uveso platoontemplates acu-sacu.lua

Github is renaming the main dir after the selected branch.
So when you select the Master branch you will get the path ai-uveso-master

Rename /ai-uveso-master/ to /AI-Uveso/ and it will work.

Next time downlod the AI-Uveso mod from the vault (FAF client) or from here:
https://forum.faforever.com/topic/350/

All 3 locations have the same mod version, i upload them always at the same time.

Thanks a lot guys!

Should have looked here before closer, but I am just not enough into coding or have not read it through well enough, so that I got it where the mistake was coming from...
