Game Freezes, locks and crash
« on: January 20, 2011, 12:08:32 AM »
Hi,

I'm at level 2 and have just build up the basic buildings. Started the game to get som patients in, as soon as I reach about July, I'm unable to pick up any staffs (like pick em up and put them in rooms). The buttons are not responsive at all. I just hear the music. I cannot access the menu on the top or anything. Thus, I have to quit and restart, just to experience the same all over again.

Anyone else experience the same problem or have a solution to the problem?

I'm running TH at win 7 64-bit.

thanks, |maze|

Oh, similar to this problem: http://code.google.com/p/corsix-th/issues/detail?id=555

Hi Grimdoc,

and thanks for replying so fast. I download this:

https://code.google.com/p/corsix-th/downloads/detail?name=CorsixTH-Beta5-Installer.exe&can=2&q=

Which says Beta 5 Installer.

I also just notice there's this available:

https://code.google.com/p/corsix-th/downloads/detail?name=CorsixTH-Beta5-Win64.zip&can=2&q=

Which is called Beta 5 - Windows 64-bit Archive
    
Do you think I downloaded and installed the wrong program? And that the Beta 5 - Windows 64-bit Archive might solve my problem?

appreciate that you take the time off to answer me!

I'm sorry, I don't really know if that can fix the problem.  :-\
But I noticed the issue you linked to was from Beta 4, but since you run Beta 5, that means it still persists.

The only recommendation I can make is that you download the latest development version (and hope that it has been fixed as a side-effect of something else:
http://th.corsix.org/corsix-th-latest-win32.zip


But I guess the developers would like to read the debug text that is made when the error appears.
Just play the game until it crashes again, and the minimize the game window, and copy all the text you see in the command window.
You can copy it all by right-clicking on the top of the window, click Edit -> Select All, and the do the same, but now you choose Copy.

You can either paste it here, or in the issue you linked (since it is probably the same error).


Edit: You can also save the game right before the error date, and post it here or in the issue, and hope that it can be recreated by the developers.

Thanks, Grimdoc :-)

I did uninstall the beta 5 installer, and installed the 64-bit archive. The game is running, so at least it starts up. I will start a new game in a couple of hours, so if you check my thread around say 08 PM UK-time (9 PM Norway), I'll let you know how it goes!

Thanks for another superfast reply!

I will update this post if I experience the crash. The initial message (when starting up TH via corsixTH_SDL.exe say:

Notice: LuaJIT not being used.
Consider replacing Lua with LuaJIT to improve performance. Note that there is no
t currently a 64 bit version of LuaJIT.

Update: 07 PM GTM+1:  Did level 1 superfast. Experienced no bugs during that level. Picking up staffs and dropping them somewhere else seemed to work properly there. Now, lets see how that fare in level 2 (the level were my previous game crashed.

Update 08 PM GTM+1: Lost just 1 months out as my value (- loan were below -10 000) is this something new in corsixTH? Do remember playing the original game and you could take up loan and still don't lose. Due to this loss, I can't report on the bug yet, guess I have to "slow-build" at level 2.

Update: 09 PM GTM+1: Passed level 2. No crashes. But the staff  seems to leave the hospital, and just wander around outside, is this a reported bug?

Hm, if you had updated with the latest SVN update like I suggested, the problem with the balance in level 2 would have been fixed.

An issue was made, and it's set as "fixed" on january 11th :)

The only difference between the installer and the archive of beta 5 is that the installer features a fancy wizard, while the archive must be extracted with some other software and put somewhere.

Jepp, er norsk :) Can't run the 32-bit you suggested as my win 7 is 64-bit.

Hi Lego 3, it seems to have been solved using that archive 64-bit file :)

That is not the exact solution, as mentioned in comment 22, you will need more money to win with it. TortoiseSVN is recommended if you wish to apply patches. http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/

You can run the 32-bit precompiled latest version on 64-bit Windows too.

Yep, I run Win 7 with 64 bit too, and I use the 32 bit version - No problems at all :)

Ah, nice little tool. But I'd rather play without that patch then, and just wait until it's been solved properly. In the meantime I can enjoy the extra financial challenge! ;)

I can't fix the error. But I just wanted to check if you know about the cheat codes, so you can skip that level and keep playing this fabulous game! :)

In case you didn't know about it, here goes:
When you get a fax, just press these buttons on the fax machine: "24328", and press the green button.


If you want to have access to cheats without having to wait for a fax, you can use the debug-menu.
Just go to: C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\CorsixTH  -  Open config.txt and change the debug line to true (debug = true)
And now, when inside the game, you have access to the debug menu on top of the screen (where you find load, save etc).
Or you could just use F11 (debug must still be set to true).
