Default [Q] format() expects 5 args, got 4

I'm currently S-OFF, on 3.04.615.2 rooted, with SuperCID and an unlocked bootloader and PhilZ Recovery 6.10.2. I'm trying to flash EclipticONE per the post here from recovery. I followed the wipe directions as clarified here and I get the error when installing from zip:
format() expects 5 args, got 4
E:Error in /data/media/0/
(Status 7)
Installation aborted
press any key to continue.
So, thinking I'm a moron and missing something, because I've flashed Samsung devices before but never HTC and never KitKat, I went back and tried the EclipticOne Stock KitKat file. Got the same error. I can restore my backup and get back to a working stock ROM, but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here and any insight would be appreciated!

That's an issue with some ROMs with newer recoveries and noted in the PhilZ FAQ in its main page.

We fixed the v1.2 EclipticONE install so it now works with all recoveries. If you need, I can work with the ROM author to fix their installer.

I got that one and installed it no problem. I also updated PhilZ Touch since I noticed there was a newer version of it. Thanks for the help!
