PostSubject: The mod just crashes randomly.   Mon Nov 12, 2012 12:23 pm

Using Windows XP on a PC more than capable of running the vanilla game without crashes. This mod just crashes and gives me that window that XP likes to give you about sending an error report, you know the one.
I'd love to help you pinpoint the exact issue but that seems impossible with no error message. Is there an error log somewhere that I can show you? If not, is it possible to code one in?

Well you could disable the SFX and see if it reduces the crashes.

Other than that, I don't know what causes these crashes.

Faestus, there is a way to turn debugging log on in the source code. It eats lots of CPU, but it should prove useful before a patch launch, when doing pretests. It helped me a lot.

That doesn't seem to work.

Can't be that CPU intensive, can it? Perhaps add a command line flag that can be used to run the game with debugging on?

Doesn't that require extra Libraries linked?

Nope. Do a search on DEBUGMSG. If I remember correctly, all you need to do is define something in extern.h

Any news on the crashes? Im really up for the mod but it's pretty unplayable. I can play the vanilla game on win 7 64 without any crash. And playing without the SFX isn't that much fun. And btw. off topic - you said someting about a new race, question is, when the patch will be released ?

Is someone still working on the crashes? I really love the mod, but those crashes are pretty annoying. My game seenms to crash only while there is a fight going on. I think the crashes are related to that somehow

I've played the mod for a while now. It keeps on crashing randomly. I save the game pretty often and even more frequently when loading a battle that has crashed before.
Some battles do not crash at all, some do crash every few minutes.
It seems like the crashes are related to some races. I play the campaign and especially when fighting demons the game seems to crash pretty often. Ssrathi, Fey and babarians cause crasheds as well. I'm not sure with dark Dwarfes, but as far as i remember i had some as well. Dwarf, High Elves, Dark Elves, Orcs and Undead seem to work pretty well. I do not have any crashes at all while playing with only those races in the game. I did not test the rest so far.

I will try to turn of the SFX in the next battle that keeps on crashing. Playing without is not much fun, so i just tried it once. It seem to work.


Is there anything in common with those races?
