Crash after Jotenheim Mission
Hello!

I´ve finished the Jotenheim mission (Mod Silent thread reborn.). Jotenheim exploded, GTI Boss-Vessel jumps in and, after witnessing the GTI "Big-Boss" Vessel (Hades?) slapping the two cruisers, i jumped out, got debriefed and then i wanted to start the next mission and CRASH.

Okay, you already had some posts like this and i check the built version. But still the crash occurs. Maybe another file may be false? I´ve run the debug mode and post the error log below. I´ve made sure i just installed the fs2_open_3_6_10_RC file. Well, as you can see the error log still says "fs2_open_3_6_10" at the begin of the log. Hmmm...what i´m doing wrong? I hope you can help me solving this because your mod is really GREAT and i love FS1, FS2 and WC1-5. I must say this is my first time installing the FS open mods. Had little trouble but got them working....untill the above failure. The Crash happened when that specific ship model (Karnak or so?) was trying to get loaded. Anyways, thank you very much for your kindly help. Now, here´s the log:

EDIT: As this log was wrong i´ve deleted it to save space. The other log is in my second post.

Best regards

Re: Crash after Jotenheim Mission
Could you try this: load a debug build (fs2_open_3_6_10d.exe), run it and play that mission. If it crashes, go to the data folder in the FS2 directory, and post the fs2_open.log file here. The error log you just posted is almost useless (not your fault, just a fact).

Oh, and next time, use [code][/code] tags to make the text more readable.

Re: Crash after Jotenheim Mission
Thank you for the info. My apology for the wrong error log. I already have a log from my loading try, running the fs2_open_3_6_10d.exe in the launcher. Here´s the result:

Re: Crash after Jotenheim Mission
Yeah, it looks like the game hangs when generating the cache file for the karnak model. Just let it sit for a while. And yeah, it WILL take a long time, and Vista or 7 will probably inform you that it has hanged. Just let it do its magic.

Re: Crash after Jotenheim Mission
True...i have Vista Home Premium 32-bit and, yes, it says the game hangs. I´ll go to sleep now (Must get up early for work.) and will try it again, when i´m back home  (With much time for waiting then  ;) ) and will let you know if it succeeds. But i´m sure this is the reason. Nevertheless --> Thanks a lot for your fast and efficent help :yes: :yes: :yes:!

OK, a crash is very very different from a hang. See here for details.

Re: Crash after Jotenheim Mission
Yeah, but if Windows in its infinite wisdom decides that the game hangs (has become unresponsive, which is something FSO does every time it loads a mission), and the user decides to kill the process, it will crash, and it will generate the error log.

Re: Crash after Jotenheim Mission
Hello again!

So i tried it this time just to sit and wait how long it would take to see the magic do it´s magical thing ;).

And i can tell you, that i don´t needed to wait very long. It took just 2 minutes untill the fast load cache, for the Karnak ship model, has been created by the system. Now i was able to complete the ST-R story and i really must say that you´ve done excellent work. I played also The Great War, Operation Templar and Silent threat before i played ST-R. You´ve done great work and, although i also have the Original german FS 1 Retail, to my original german FS 2 Retail, that i prefer to play the FS 1 Great war story within your FSO, because it´s far more easier to play it inside your FSO instead of installing Virtual PC (Incl. installing an old Win version there.), Dosbox and whatever else needed to get my original retail running on my Vista PC. Good of you that you´ve included the Great War story  :yes: .

Overall you´ve done outstanding work with these mods and i love the ST-R story!!!!!

FS2 can be run just with a Win 98/ME combatibility mode in Vista. Sadly this don´t work for the old, but still loved, WC 3-5 games....as we all know. Well for them it seems that i must install V-PC, Dosbox or whatever else to get ´em running.  A goal to aim at for my vacation, when i´m 3 weeks off from work. Then i have time to play these classical games. I kept the original retails WC3-5....played them last time over 10 years ago! Now it´s time to dive back  :D .

Best regards
