BUG (Win): Loading Errors (1.0.6 Beta) [FIXED]

Post by Farland » Tue Mar 06, 2007 8:24 pm

The program won't even open for me now. I get a

Director Player Error
Property Not Found
#locH
Script Error. Continue?

It doesn't matter if I click yes or no. The program doesn't open.

I cleared my prefs and even redownloaded the program. No dice. What gives?

Uh-oh! Gonna go check it out. Perhaps I left a needed file out of the zip.

Are you on a Windows PC? What are you using to extract the Zip contents?

Edit: I just tested the Mac version, and it launches fine, even if no prefs exist. Now I'm off to test the Windows version.

Yeah, windows, and I'm using winzip to unzip and then just the BRPG icon to launch.

Confirmed. This error only affects Windows OS. The error message pops up a total of 4 times during launch, regardless of whether there are old prefs files or not. The good news is that you can click to continue all 4 times and the program thereafter runs fine.

The error, it turns out, is because it's trying to center the Help screen based on the dimensions of the map window before certain necessary variables have been initialized. I've fixed this and will provide a patch soon. There are a couple of other things I'd like to fix first before I issue the patch. In the meantime, rest assured that the four error messages Windows users will get while launching BRPG are completely innocuous.

Excellent. Will the patch be out by this weekend, do you think?

Yes, perhaps even tonight or tomorrow.

I've already fixed several issues that we discovered when we tested v1.0.6 last night.
