[Fixed] Hexen crashing

Fri, 21 Jan 2005 04:02:58


I have a problem with Hexen crashing after going through portals as some other people, so I read through the posts, and found mention of the -minzone option. However, I tried running Hexen using various values of -minzone and -maxzone, but it always crashes with a 'Z_Malloc' error. I tried -minzone 1024 at first, and when I loaded my saved game (from before using -minzone) the game keeps crashing when I go through a portal with a ''Z_Malloc: failed on allocation of 729304 bytes'' error. Has anyone got a solution for this problem?

It's a bug in spawning phased lights where I accidently made an endless loop that spawns phased lights untill there's no more memory left. I accidently introduced this bug while working on sector specials. <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: --> As I already said, it's been fixed.
