Several maps crashing after update

Post by Knutselmaaster » 19 Nov 2018, 18:50

Hello dear developers,

After having updated MP today, several of my homemade maps crash the game @load.
-Happens when opening with editor aswell as in local play
-Stadium maps and valley map
-After a few seconds the "loading icon" stops turning and the game crashes

I joined a logfile.

ps, hope it's not Reg his fault :lol:

Hey Knutselmaaster :)

Nice to see you even if I would prefer it's not for a crash :)
Could you provide us with your maps?

I've got the same but on my map in my post here. I think it might be related to that too.
Edit: I saw crashlog of his and his using AMD graphic card. Same as me but I've got DEVICE_HUNG and DEVICE_REMOVED in my log.

Hello Alinoa, thank you, it's nice to (a little bit) back.

It seems that maps make the game crash when high quality shadows are calculated.
I created a map (the VIII one), all worked fine, low and normal shadow calculations work fine.
I calculated high quality shadows, once it gets to 100% the game crashes (tried it several times).
I can reopen the map without a problem.
Log joined.

Wow, that has been a long time that I didn't use that site...

(note to the other people that download the maps, yes I know they s*ck! I have never been good at it and now I'm also rusty and old... But I still like building.)

I managed to get it to work.
Not by knowledge but by pure chance I suppose.
First of all, I have to say that my computer is full of old Maniaplanet stuff, leftovers from all the betas that I installed years ago, etc.
The hard disk where the final installation was has died a year ago but there is still a lot of leftovers from other installs on the disks that are still working.
I also have several Maniaplanet data folders, in "c://users", in "e://documents" etc etc, filled with maps, skins, and that kind of stuff.

Now, what did I do to get it to work?
I bought TM Lagoon (really) and (probably for the above reason) it didn't install properly, after some hassle Maniaplanet began to install from scratch, asked me where i wanted the files.
When it was finished, I launched the launcher and it began to update to 4.1 (which it was already, probably somewhere else on the computer) and once it had launched it told me that my password was wrong (??) and I needed to reset it.
Once I got in the Maniaplanet Home, my packs were still all there but for some reason It needed to update them all (I chose HD).
Lagoon was nowhere to be found though...
I launched the Lagoon demo, it asked me for my product code and it worked.
I got back to Stadium, tried to open the crashing maps, but they weren't in there (I chose the wrong Maniaplanet personal files folder at install :oops: ) so I manually copied the tracks to the right folder (where I found a whole bunch of extremely old .gbx files)
Now, the game saw my newest maps, the ones that crashed the game, and I could open them all without the game crashing.

To be short, if you have problems, buy Lagoon (it is 50% discount!)
More seriously, I suppose that the installation has overwrote some corrupt file or repaired some faulty registry entry somewhere.
My advice to people having similar problems, try to reinstall a fresh copy of Maniaplanet, that might help.

Merci Grand Schtroumpf!
It is good to be back.
I really don't have much time to play though, so I only play offline, building maps distractedly while my mind is working on other things.
It's the kids new job that motivated me to take a look at how Maniaplanet has evolved and I got sucked right back in :D

@developers, I just remarked something that might have to do with the crashes.
All of my graphic settings remain unchanged after the reinstall I described above (I didn't uninstall anyhing) but the "disable shader model 5" seting in compatibility settings has flipped over (It was checked before and I found it unchecked just now).
I'm sure that I didn't do that and I'm also sure that the other settings are my latest ones and not some that have come from an other install before.

I'll try disabling the shader model 5 to see if my maps crash the game again...

Edit: nope they don't crash. But the game has updated so I suppose you tackled the bug already. :clap:
