Crashes In Fitz 0.85
SV_TouchLinks: next != L->next - this would happen sometimes right after the map was loaded, sometimes a second after the elevator started
does it actually crash, or just display that message and keep going?
FYI: that message indicates that fitzquake attempted to repair the linked list rather than hanging right then as previous engines do, but doesn't guarantee that the list is actually repaired and it might crash or hang later in the list anyway. The problem is caused by questionable QC practices. For more discussion, see the i3d thread here:
Fitzquake freezes after that message displays in console.
/me replays this in 0.80
okay, that sucks if this actually causes a hang in cases that used to be okay in previous versions. I'll investigate a more proper way to fix this situation for next time.
yes indeed, looks like my fix just caused more problems.
I've encountered a strange issue with this map. If I start it using Fitzquake085, the map loads but almost freezes immediately. The CPU would show usage at 100%, and Fitzquake would not respond. I would have to use ctrl alt del to get out. Fitzquake085 works fine for any other map tho. This map also works fine on Aguirre Quake. This issue is not related to heapsize as it happens regardless of what I change it to. Any ideas?
unfortunately this is a known problem in Fitzquake 085 that causes it to hang when running White Room, but there are no known workarounds.
I suggest you just play it in another engine for now, such as Aguirre's engine, or in an earlier version of Fitzquake.
Okay, on my setup it didn't display the SV_TouchLinks: next != L->next, wasn't sure if it was the same issue
the map was unplayable for me as well, but only because for no reason at all, impulse 12 was removed. (wtf)
yes, the crash is related to an attempted fix of SV_TouchLinks-related crashes in other maps/mods. Somehow fixing them broke this map, so it was not a good fix.
THIS FREEZES FITZ085 ON WINDOWS 7???
WHY DOES IT FREEZE FITZ085 ON WINDOWS 7????
(right at the beginning on the elevator, about five seconds in)
KNOWN ISSUE, EH?!
(and still no fix - qc/map...)
it's fitzquake that is broken, not this map (presumably, since it works in other engines and older fitzquakes.) So it seems weird that willem would patch his map.
But On The Other Hand
why would fitzquake's fix fail only in this particular map and not in any other if it wasn't for some glitch in either qc or map setup?
If it's the maps fault, I can't imagine what it is. As metl said, it works in other engines and earlier versions of Fitz. Logically, the problem must lie with Fitz 0.85.
I played it in DP then (whose blood effects fit especially well here).
Still, I'm very disappointed with the two of you on principle. :)
Directq will also work, looks really nice too
I agree with Zwiffle's somewhat critical post #79. It did look good in my opinion but I kept thinking that the visual style is simply unnecessary because, well, it's clearly a base map.
