Glest crashes on WinXP (Radeon Cards) (fixed on 1.1.0-rc1)
« on: 25 September 2004, 09:24:40 »
Glest version 1.0.1 crashes on WinXP SP1 after some time playing the game. I've noticed this effect on former versions of Glest as well.

Start it: fine.
Start a new game: fine.
Play for app. 10 minutes: you get an error and the game crashes.

Either by displaying a WinXP popup window saying "access violation in module XYZ". Or a Glest error message pops up. It seems, Glest is unable to access a spec. memory location.

This looks like some kind of null pointer error to me (just my 2 cents).

Since this is a permanent error, I'm unable to play Glest 1.0.1.

Here it is:

Crash
Version: v1.0.1
Time: Sat Sep 25 21:20:47 2004
Description: Access violation (Reading address 0x84c1)
Address: 0x84c1

Still I'm not sure if it is of use. This message isn't into too much detail, is it?

Oh, this is the same error and even the same ATI graphics card, same OS and a similar sound card.

So at least: I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. ;)

error 0x84c1!!
« Reply #8 on: 5 October 2004, 17:41:14 »
I downloaded Glest yesterday and I played about ten minutes also. My OS is WinXP and My VideoCard is 9600 ATi with the lastest drivers. I am also experiencing the crash. I believe it is the same error as 0x84c1 or something like that. I not sure because I'm at school and I didn't bring the error file.

I just found out that  there is a new driver version for ATi 9600 (Version: 6.14.10.6476)  

I can't try it out now because it would take me all night to download, so I will install the new driver tomorrow  and see if that helps. Good nite.

We have been investigating and we think that this is a problem of catalyst drivers, soon we will post a list of drivers versions that work ok with the game.

Radeon cards again, there must be some buggy radeon driver version around there, because two of us (tucho and enveloop) have also radeon cards and the game never crashed.

Please tucho, post here the driver version that worked ok with glest.

I believe my driver is 4.4, and the game runs with no problem; however I remebered that some time ago I downloaded a newer version and it gave me some trouble (the resources didn´t show up in the screen for instance) so I went back to this one. Anyway, tucho plays very often and for long periods of time so you may test his driver first.

:D  Thanks Panda, I followed your advice and Qlest 1.06 has not crashed on me since.

Are you a programmer Panda?

So this has to be something related with night lighting, I will try to debug it but it will be quite difficult sonce I dont have a radeon card to test it,. enveloop, can you try downloading those drivers (4.1) and testing if it crashes?

Can anyone also try disabling shadows and checking if the game still crashes?

do you have some crash.txt file in the glest directory?

Anyway Martin-o is still away, and he is who can know the reason of the crash...

I tried it three times, always the same thing. is there no solution?
i got xp with service pack 2 (build 2600) bot a friend of mine (xp, too) doesn't have this problem. i think its really about these radeon cards - i got a 9600SE and he's just using his onboard.

PS: has nothing to do with the day/night change, i tried it.

PPS: i already sent more details to game-^-glest.org, same name
