Crash problem / .mdmp extension help needed
Yo, me and one of mah problems again. :doubt:

Since the .log is unrevealing and I failed to open them .mdmp files can s/o please help me out here? Problem seems to be mission-related, I can load it in debug FRED, though.

This is not that helpful.  What is happening leading up to the crash?

Re: Crash problem / .mdmp extension help needed
Nothing. I try to load the mission and when the loading screen is finished the game drops back to the desktop without any error msg or anything.

 
Re: Crash problem / .mdmp extension help needed
I experienced similar issues. Missions that worked fine and had rather small memory use CTD'd moments after they started loading. No note in debug logs except "crash detected", mission loads perfectly fine in FRED though. Sometimes re-safing the mission in FRED solves the issue, sometimes doing that causes the issue.

Ok.  So I figured out how to crack open the Minidump (turns out, you can't leave the files in a protected folder, it won't let you use them).

Can you find FadeIconinstall03 in the mod?  It crashes while trying to render that animation, and it could be a case of bad data.

Yes, that file was broken. Replaced it by a functioning version and the mission now loads just fine. Thanks a lot.  :yes:
