[0.5.3] Crash after starting the game
« on: September 22, 2016, 08:31:06 PM »
Hi, I've tried new version and it crashed after I started a new game. It scrolled to a location and boom. This time I've checked Kaspersky and it doesn't seem like it. It's repeatable.

Version: 0.5.3 (European - don't know if it is just a download location or different version)
OS: Windows 10
Resolution: 2560x1440 (scaling 1.5)
All options are checked except -> skip every second frame



I can't test any further, obviously.

regards,
Kate

Stats.txt not generated. I just started program, clicked new game, clicked skip "intro" and crash.

Does this also happen if scaling is set to x1?

Dammit. It's the scaling. I'm sure I tested this. :(

Just sent out an email about this.

On high-resolution screens where the game's screen scaling set to anything other than x1, the game will crash when you first enter a mission map/area. So it will crash when you start a new game and when you first enter the Hensley International map/area.

You can avoid this crash by setting screen scaling to x1 in the options menu when starting a new game and first entering Hensley International and then resetting it back to what it was after the initial animation that shows where your target is has played.

Currently working on a fix. Sorry about this!

Fix done. Currently compiling the different OS versions and will then upload v0.5.3.1 for download.

Just to confirm. It works well when the scaling is set to 1x.

Don't despair. Discovered bugs in a testing round are a good thing. That means one less in a release. :)

Kate

Hehe. I know. It's just embarrassing because it's a really dumb bug. ;D
