Cant create install?

Hay everyone

I recently tried to get an alpha demo of Forgotten working for a friend - sadly it didnt work properly.

DivDX did create an installation file which I was able to launch, but after displaying the "Made with DIV! Make your own games" box it just showed a black screen for a split second then crashed.

This isnt on my virtual machine btw, this is running on Windows 8/10 on my actual Windows machine.

I just tried to create a demo installation which you did a few days ago on my machine with Windows 10, the DIV logo appears, but once the splash-screen finishes, the program ends (as if crashing).

We will need to review why it happens, thank you for the report.

Did you try the compatibility mode? Try one of shown modes. On Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit, DIV DX, also the compiled exe runs very well (with some little fps laggs, that Cictec known).

Yes, I tried compatibility modes. No improvement.

Has there been any progress on this, or on any more recent developments with DivDX - at all? Starting to feel a bit silly having programmed a fairly sizable game in what seems to be a basically unusuable language. I can't compile it and show it to others and I cant just convince people who are not already experienced with Div to download DivDX and run it in the IDE.

Bc, I've just moved into a new house after living in hotels for goodness knows how many months!

Really hoping i can get back on the DIV train soon. My life has been somewhat crazy the past year and I've spent most of it taking my kids places and working in between!

Div isn't dead, it's just bloody exhausted :D

Happy to hear that DIV isn´t dead!

Once it has the ability to compile all the programs written for it,
you can spread dozens of games on freeware sites - could there be a

Hi again

after trying to get the my most recent project - an explorable Silent Hill style town made in Mode 8 - working - but to no avail, and to no response from Mike (he's probably busy with something else - or somewhere else - right now?) I do wonder if it's worth trying to create anything more in DivDX for the time being.

I mean, the bugs I can sort of work with - ok, so 256 colors only, not ideal but I can work with it - and ok, so any environments I make will have to snap to the smallest measurements on the grid in order to not get vertical bar map glitches, I now understand that - and I wont be able to change the environment/fog colour if I want to dynamically load in new .WLD files - I understand that as well - but if I can't even create an install for people to get it working without sound, let alone WITH sound, I don't know if theres any point trying to keep working on what I'm doing or plan out anything new?

any progress on creating installs with a Mode 8 based game would be great, so I can work out if any ideas I continue to have could come to something, or if theyre likely to stay pipe dreams.

Hey BC

Well, my contract finishes next week so I'm planning to do some housekeeping on DIV and get some things fixed.

Hopefully this will solve your problems.

I'm still trying to recruit a full time DIV developer, so you never know what the next few weeks and months will hold. I was very close before to getting somebody perfect for the role too!

I had already corrected some problems with the installation of mode8 games thanks to your first demo (Forgotten), but obviously some problem is still present.

In the last period I was busy and I could not look for the problem.

Finally I could re-install windows after several months, maybe if you can send me a copy of the game with audio I'll take a look at it this weekend (also from Linux), to see what happens.

As for the other bugs of mode8, it should be established whether it is possible to correct the current engine or find another that can replace it (without affecting compatibility with current games).

HI Cictec - my apologies for not being present, Ive been having a bit of a busy time myself. I can send across a copy of the game with audio today if you like/have a windows machine ready there? Let me know.

I've analized the program...

Apparently it seems that OGG files do not play well from the library used by DIV.

I created an installation with only sound files and it seems to work, I sent you via MP the download link, please try if the game is played correctly and with sound effects.

About ogg files, I'll see in the next days if I can find a solution, alternatively you could try to convert the music in WAV or MOD/S3M /XM/IT formats.

About the map glitch, are you referring to the black lines marked in red in the following screenshot?

fantastic, yes it works - thank you Cictec I could try converting things to .WAV format but for now Id rather wait, its not a great long term fix.

And yes - the black lines. they seem to appear when lines are made in the map editor more than the minimum "snap" distance apart - but sadly I discovered this so far into the making of the game that its going to take a really long time to alter the maps to not show up this glitch, and in some cases making things snap to the finest points on the map makes parts of the level shapes/geometry impossible.

Also, in the compiled demo program that you sent, the lighting was weirdly off and too bright. Did you perhaps change something by mistake, or simply comment out the .ogg relevent lines?

Great

The original DIV does not support the OGG format, but from the code I saw that Mike added something to introduce support for this format.
However, there is no support for including OGGs in the PAK, I added this support but I see that it does not play well, I have to try if there is a problem with the packing or just the internal library has some problems with the OGG format.

In case you do not succeed in solving the problem, you could try to convert the music in XM format for now, I think it's a better solution than WAV.

I see, it will probably be one of the famous bugs present in the VPE engine used for rendering mode8, it would be revised to see if it is possible to correct the problem.

Mmmm, of the PRG I have only commented on the 3 lines of LOAD_WAV that loaded the OGG, probably the problem occurs because the new build I created contains the fixes of the functions GET_WALL_TEXTURE/GET_SECTORE_TEXTUE, so the workaround in the code that I suggested should be deleted.

This weekend I do some tests and I'll let you know, in the meantime let's see if Mike solves the conflicts for the pull-request of the updates, otherwise next week I'll mount a new build for windows with the fixes to be published, so at least you can continue with the project.

This build fix mode8 funciones, .OGG loading and playing, and package installer.

Also I've sent to you the PRG without the workaround for mode8 functions, with the new build should work all fine (except map glitches).

Try it when possible to confirm if work fine.

hihi Cictec

havnt tried to create an install yet, but i did try the new build - works well, the lighting is now fixed but some areas of the map i walk into now cause the game to crash? :S

i.e. the allyway with the notice on the wall behind the workshop, and down the street in front of the workshop doors, walking down both ways causes the game to crash. Not sure why this is.

Great, thanks for the feedback.

Mmmm, I have not clear the area you indicate, would you be able to generate a screenshot of the part or parts before the crash is generated?

I tried to go around the whole map before generating the build and honestly did not give me any kind of crash, maybe it's a precise sequence, so let's see if I can reproduce the error even in my machine and understand what's going on .

here you go - walking down these areas and facing this way causes the game to crash. Sorry about the wait - had some serious health issues.

I also tried creating an installation, but it crashed as soon as I ran it. Heres what stdout said:

Sorry about the wait, I've tested again the game...

From DIV environment, no issues, I have traveled the whole map without problems, in particular the points you mentioned several times, no crashes.

I then generated an installation package, no problem, tried again the game with the game version of the package, same result, no crashes.

I sent you a PM with a link to download the package version of the game, when you can try it please to report any possible problem and see what it could be.

hurrah, it works! strange that it wont work right when compiled on my machine.... oh well haha. Before I release a public alpha, Id want to fix the audio glitch (track loops at the wrong place) and add an intro screen of some kind, like a press 1 to start press 2 to quit kinda deal. if I were to do that could i send it over to you to try compiling before putting it to rest?

I'm not sure if i'll be continuing it at this stage - with the map glitches (black vertical bars/areas on map) and currrent bugs in mode 8 (especially the long winded map editor) i feel like my time with mode 8 may be coming to an end, but it'd be cool to be able to show people what mode 8 *can* do. Im looking at developing in Godot if I can get my head around it, as I really want to be making true 3D games at this point

Great. , yes is strange the only options I see are an incorrect installation of the new build (maybe you should try to manually delete all the files and insert the new ones) or some DIV environment error that occurs on your machine (most likely the first), use windows 10 ?

Sure, no problem.
