End trigger crashes on various levels
« on: April 03, 2015, 09:05:46 PM »
So far I've encountered crashes at the end of a level on the following levels:

2-1
2-2
3-3
3-4

Have you tried re-installing the game and/or play with another character?

Just to be clear, what version of the game are you running?

I'm experiencing this bug consistently on map 2-1 and cannot advance past this level.  I had it happen once while ending one of the 1-? maps and another crash midway through the 3-1 map.

I'm running on Windows 8.1 Pro x64.
I installed from AAClassicV1.04_Windows.zip

Please attach your character file here and let me see if I can recreate the problem.

"Cannot access attachments upload path!" upon submission.  Both from C:\Games\Amulets & Armor and from trying to attach it from the Desktop.

Edit: From IE as well as Firefox.

That's strange.  Maybe try emailing it to support@amuletsandarmor.com ?  I'm not sure if the web browser is the problem or if it is something about the file itself.  Thanks for trying again.

i've tried on both the windows port and the dosbox version

Just to be clear, what version of the game are you running?

1.04

Also the crash on Elmore's (3-4) happens whenever I grab the key and try to exit with it. I've tried both killing all the enemies and running past them, but the key is always the consistent factor for the crash. Probably the same for the other levels.

I took your character (mage) through the Knights of Andrew and did not have any problems.  As for leaving a level with the key, I have not done that, but I would not be surprised if that is a problem.

Are you doing anything special when leaving the levels 2-1 and 2-2?

I usually play with the Windows Classic v1.04 version.

I've even downloaded it again and make sure I didn't patch it or change out files.  No differences from the download.

Looks like you have played it a bunch.  Do the crashes occur after playing the game a long time?  Might have a memory leak that needs fixing.

Just re-installed / re-booted.  Copied my saves to the fresh install and had no problem finishing 2-1 & 2-2 but then crashed finishing 2-3 (which is a bummer cause that new wand was NICE!)

Edit: I just re-attempted and made it through 2-3.  It seems to be intermittent when it occurs and it doesn't necessarily occur after playing for a long time.  Many of the times I caused the crash were simply loading the game, playing one map, and crashing at the end.

For 2-1 and 2-2 I've been both killing all enemies and not killing enemies while rushing to the exit. For both those levels it just randomly decides to crash on exit. It might be some item being picked up that does it, but at the same time it might just be a random bug in the code that fails to trigger a specific action.

Also the crashes occur no matter if I play 1-2 hours or 5 minutes.

I'm not thinking.  Please send me the file "stdout.txt" after a crash has occurred.  It might tell me what the problem is.  Again, send to support@amuletsandarmor.com .

I haven't been crashing lately and I've just completed 4-2.  I did have one crash a while ago but I didn't see anything in stdout.txt apart from the stock message:

Ahhh ... plenty of memory to run in.
Amulets & Armor version 1.0 -- (C) 1996 United Software Artists

I will keep an eye out.

I've got a plan that I'll try to execute tonight that should tell us what the problem is, but it involves building a new version of the code.

My attempt last night failed to work like I planned.  But not to worry, I've found another possibly solution called BlackBox that generates a report.  Let's see if that'll slip into the code easily.
