Something weird happens when opening D2X-XL

Postby Pumo » Thu Apr 21, 2011 8:11 pm

I've noticed that since version 1.15.179 I can't run D2X-XL anymore.

Everytime I try tu run either D2X-XL.EXE or D2X-XL-OMP.EXE, I get a windows error window that says that the "application failed to initialize (0x0150002)" and nothing else happens, the program doesn't runs at all. :(

I don't know if it's a bug or something on my computer, but when I use 1.15.178 D2X-XL works flawlessly, while it doesn't works at all with newer versions.

And BTW, there's no d2x.log file created when this happens (as the program doesn't runs at the first place there's no time to create the log file I guess? :clue: ).

As my signature says, I do have Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32-bit edition and a GeForce 6200 PCI (if that serves). And I have all D2X-XL's DLLs in place.
Oh yeah, and it also happens on my Windows XP Home SP2 partition.

If do you think it's a bug, then I will make a ticket on Sourceforge for it.

Oh no, that can impossibly be a bug. I don't know how you could have that idea.

I've already made a ticket on sourceforge for it, since I've been having the same problem.

OK, good to know that. At least now I know it's not only on my side and not an OS or installation issue.

Same issue here, running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
The 64-bit build of the game works though.

So it may be a compilation error on all other versions, I think? :think:
Although as I'm not a programmer myself I may be saying something dumb. :P

If it didn't compile, Diedel would be the first one to notice. It sounds like a memory error.

Well at least it has to be dealt with now that so many people have it - I'm stuck with 1.15.178 (which seems to have been the last version before this started happening, though I didn't update again until 1.15.180).
I haven't recieved any response from Karx yet on my bug ticket, but I'm sure he'll get around to it eventually...

I have seen 32/64-bit specific issues in programs in past, usually due to funny stuff like pointer truncation.

If the 64 bit version doesn't work, try a 32 bit version - there's no disadvantage to it.

1.15.184 works - there's a wierd screen resolution problem that I will make a bug report for later because my dad wants me to be working on my resume at this instant. :P

EDIT: Posted the screen res bug report, hopefully this can be fixed. Basically version 1.15.184 can only use a 4:3 aspect ratio when it's in a level.
