Macromedia Projector Has Stopped Working

Postby DHall » Mon Oct 10, 2016 11:47 pm

Hello -

I am running Windows 10 x64, (laptop)
Battlegrounds RPG version 1.8b

I have had no problems loading commercial maps, except for these:

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/187 ... st-Map-Set

I have given this map set its own category folder, and when I select the category from the drop down menu I get this:

"Macromedia Projector Has Stopped Working"
Then windows closes the program. I have tried the following:

Renaming the map files thinking that the file names might be too long
Isolating each map in the folder to see if a particular file was to blame
Opening the jpg files in Adobe Photoshop and saving under a different name
Moving the jpgs to a different computer (a desktop I use as a client) and trying to open them there, thinking it might be a hardware or driver issue

None of this has worked, I'm afraid, these maps always crash the Macromedia Projector and close the program.
Any help would be appreciated! If you need any more info, let me know.

Have you reduced the map dimensions to be no higher than 4000 pixels max (length or width), as suggested in the BRPG User Manual?

Also make sure that the colorspace is RGB, not CMYK (common in maps intended for printing).

That worked perfectly. Thanks for the prompt reply - I missed the 4000 pixel limit.

Great. Welcome to the BG forums, by the way.

Someone else was getting this error yesterday and they were able to fix it by updating their Nvidia video card drivers. Just mentioning it in case this helps anyone else restore BRPG and/or BGE to working order.
