File xxx.smx uses an invalid filetype; some sprites will not display. This is likely caused by a mod

Getting the above error when running in UHD – installed it on a different PC with same results. Game missing assests - buildings, characters, etc.

Brand new install and no mods installed. Searched and apparently I’m the only one experiencing this – on two different PCs? Any suggestions?

I may have a similar problem. I have the steam app and the windows store app installed. I normally use the Steam app to play, but I wanted to see if there was a performance difference, and when I ran the Windows store app just now, I got the “File empty_x2.smx” error popup.

I’ll try running the game in Steam and see if I have the same problem.

I’m not sure what happened, but somehow I removed all my mods in my Windows 10 app, and then it started working. I then subscribed to mods 1 by 1. Hope this helps,

Could you clarify “removed all my mods in my Windows 10 app”? What app?

Thanks.
