Editor crashes
RoL turns black and I get an error message like "Rol crashed and will be shut down" with three report/reboot/dont bother-ish buttons. Here's when:

- [always crashes] When I alt-tab while a new scenario is being created (menu-->editor-->create new scen).
- [always crashes] When I try to add a script that has some error in it to a scenario, and when I then click "abort" or "debug".
- [always crashes] When I've just added an invalid script (which then turns red), and try to remove it again (right click, remove).
- [sometimes crashes] Alt-tab from the editor or maybe from the menu or in-game situations as well, I have not yet found the exact context this happens in.

And fear I'm not the only one. Thanks for looking into it.

Greypawn, has the Rise of Legends team considered using it's own server instead of gamespy?

Ok I have lurked on here for a month while working with a hardware technician and Microsoft's Support during that time. They have officially "given up" at MSgames and offered me a refund (instead of offering to buy my machine and try and figure out the conflict). Do I want to sell it? Hell no... but if this is a trend with some machines, it needs to be identified.
The hardware and ram have all been tested extensively. I own a Dell 3rd gen XPS with all standard type hardware. RoL has crashed right out of the box, through 4 patches, 3 full Windows XP Pro installs, 10 different video drivers, 2 different sound drivers, and every tweak, deacceleration, sound off, features disabling, heat/cooling test, performance reduction, and selective start up combination possible. Even 10 hours of remote assistance by hardware and MSGames tweaking things.

Every game under the sun I have runs fine. Flawlessly within reasonable parameters. That is all but RoL...

I play for 10-20 minutes, game freezes system with a high pitch tone. Must hold start button for 10 seconds to reboot. This happens without fail.

I can also produce corrupted save files by playing campaign and saving game while on RTS maps.

Sometimes even while loading the game at the precache or even during a mission load, it will lock up with the high pitch tone.

Other than that, the game works fine =p

So I am out of ideas and want to play RoL, it's a fine game, just can't seem to figure out why it won't run on my machine.

Specs:

P4 3.4 (enhanced)
2 gigs ram
Nvidia 7800 GTX
Sound Blaster X-Fi
Directx 9.0c
Apple Cinema 24"
Western Digital 250gig (Sata)
2x CD/DVD drives
All drivers and flashes up to date.

What do I do from here BHG?

Greypawn, did you guys at BHG get the name Zeke from one of the Testers, Zeke Marks? Or was it just a conicdence?

According to my sources, Zeke was a totally coincidental name for the lovable, huggable washer/dryer-looking robot.

Since you cannot increase the pop cap in multiplayer games (BOOOOO HISSSSS) can you confirm that we can increase the pop cap via rules.xml in single player games?

This is confirmed, you can alter the popcap for singleplayer games by using rules.xml.

Quote:

Would it be possible to implement ELO for clans?

It is possible, in fact, a slot already exists for such a thing. I'll inquire further regarding this and let you know.

Quote:

To win in a scenario map does a player need only to destroy the city the opponent begins with or will the player have to destroy all cities the opponent controls? (personally I like the latter) Sorry don't have the game...yet...

Victory is achieved when you have captured either the enemy capitol city or all of the enemy cities, depending on the game settings. You can also toggle Sudden Death, which means a player is defeated if even one of his cities is conquered.

Thanks for the heads-up on these issues with the editor.

Quote:

Yes, we have. During the development process, all options are considered, and this was one of them.

The Gamespy server itself isn't the primary culprit in the most recenty issues with RoL Online, but rather a few minor counterintuitive interface oversights have caused most of the major difficulty with online play. These are being addressed and corrected in a Connectivity patch that is actually in testing right now.

That's a very unique crash! Can you play other recent games without this problem occuring? Are your drivers (specifically video and sound card) up to date? Here's a last-ditch effort to try, that has helped remedy some arcane problems on certain machines-

1. Open the file found under \My Documents\My Games\Rise of Legends\ called "personal.ini" in a text editor, such as Notepad.
2. Scroll to the very bottom and add the following line "HardwareAudio=0" without the quotation marks.
3. Go to File>Save and then Save that over the old one.
4. Run the game.

If that doesn't work, send your dxdiag.txt to info@bighugegames.com and we'll see what we can see.

This is also a problem that is being addressed in the Connectivity patch I mention above.

Can you look into the pop cap issue with single player games?

I have spoken to a number of people who are experiencing the exact same problem. The changes to rules.xml are made but the effects are not present (still 300 cap). Other changes to units and such do take effect and work fine, but i cannot figure out for the life of me why the pop cap wont go above 300.

You already confirmed its possible with rules.xml but i count 5 people now that cannot get it to work. I know the xml pretty well and i am just beginning to think that its a patch issue, or something hard coded with skirmishes.

Thank you,

Just 2 bugs I found that I'll report just in case they haven't been yet.

(1) The comma hotkey doesn't work as intended. It should cycle through all military units, yes? But it selects one unit, and stays there no matter how many times I press it.

(2) The tutorial hints for the Vinci campaign map about the Pirata Aerodrome contain an error in the text. One of the bonus quests is to build up your base, and one thing on the to-do list is to build a telescope. The hints that guide you how to do that point at the telescope button and, after you've pressed it, point at the mini-map and "right click to point the telescope." However, when you hover the mouse over the minimap after clicking the telescope button, a floating box above the map appears that tells you to LEFT-click to point the telescope. The contradicting directions were confusing to us new players.

Hullo Greypawn, sorry to bring this up here, but about my problem...

http://rol.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action­=ct&f=2,474,0,10

I emailed info@bighugegames.com a little over a week ago but haven't gotten a reply yet. I'm getting pretty anxious about this problem, and now it seems I'm not the only person with it =/.

You don't by any chance know of any updates to my situation, do you? =/

Some of the answers to the questions back 4-6 months ago are no longer valid, as much has changed since then. At current, you can't alter unit skins in the demo or retail version of the game.

Didn't Evolved mention that he got this mod to work before? After speaking with a few of our scenario designers, they've told me that it should work as intended, as long as you have all of the files unzipped from the modpack in the correct directories.

Nope! Why, I do reckon that's proprietary info- them thar' stats.

Thanks for catching these! I'll be sure to forward them on to Quality Assurance for consideration and testing.

At current, the primary focus is making the multiplayer matchmaking more functional and stable, and the online experience a more seamless one. I can't really say at this time how soon any updates will be made to the Scenario Editor.

Given the situation you are describing in the thread, something is wrong on a systemic level. I would recommend installing a freshly downloaded copy of the latest DirectX, from Microsoft. If that doesn't work, e-mail me again and we can escalate it further.

yipes! hope i'm not too late for an answer!

on the auto-match, when you get put into a match it doesn't show the player's portrait, this is really more of an aesthetic thing, but i like to see my glass dragon =D i mean it shows the level of the player, the race they are playing, everything, all it doesn't show is the portrait

any chance of this being changed?

Greypawn! Haven't posted here in awhile,
but I just wanted to say thanks again for everything so far!

Oh..

And, WHERE ARE MY CUOTL HERO ICONS!!!

I really would love to have my multiplayer icon be Ix, or Czin.
That'd be uber-tight.

Anyways, thanks again Greypawn!

It's very likely it is max settings - they want to show off their game as looking as best as possible, after all.
