Title: Crash on "Next Week"
Post by: Uriel on December 21, 2010, 12:20:12 PM
WM crashes with a 90% chance when i press "Next Week" button. I'm now on 10 month 18 days in game, and i think it started crashing a couple weeks ago. I'm using rev 485 from here (http://pinkpetal.org/index.php?topic=581.0). Can someone help me understand what's the problem?
Logfile and saves is in attachment.

Makes this crash until i cure her Viras Blood Addiction. I use cure - no crashes. WTF?

Edit: She also has "Masochist" and "Broken Will" in my game.

With the holidays, I don't know when I'll get a chance to, but I'll eventually check that save out.

My game also crashed at the "Next week" button occasionally
Got to one point where it crashes 100%
Tried firing/selling different girls without effect, then after a flash of genius I tried it without a matron, and what happens? The next week works.
Tried to change the Matron from one girl to another, game still crashes, but works fine without matron.
After that I tried some more thinking and locating of the bug, and I think I got it...
The game crashes (for me) if the matron tries to make the torturer rest.


My game version is 1.30.4_beta_r593

I had no matron when this happened to me. Looks like different cases.

My game version is 1.30.4_beta_r593.
Crashes on "Next Week" always if the Log says "Init: disabling Torture".
I have no Matron at all, tried also to fire/sell Girls. Sometimes it helps, sometimes not.

I as well have a crash on next week problem. Selling girls does not resolve the problem and like Uriel, even without a matron and torturer the problem occurs.
I used to play r485 and crashes very rarely happened. Now I play (or played until I got frustrated by having to restart the game every day or every other day) r593 and crashes happen all the time.

Ah! Thank you! I've been puzzling over the crashing for hours, been testing for things like corrupt images.  :D

yeah, I find that it is almost always the torturer girl

i get another weird crash, if i have an empty brothel game will inevitably stop working.
i'm using the r593 version too.

I know the generation of new gangs can crash the game.
I know matron + Torturer as mentioned is flimsy.
I know the config file doesn't like zero or negative values (With some exception to negative values).
I know the game will crash if it tries to extract pictures from a folder that does not exist (IE: The girl's name is not the same as the folder's.)

Many of these are probably sortaeasy to fix so it doesn't crash but just creates a warning in the logfile, but it requires someone to do it. I do not voulenteer.

Guys. Had same problem. When i added all the new girl packs. I forget to readd the Mithra random girl.
Without those, gang going through the catacombs can crash the game.

So get a Mithra for for instance Cliff pack and put that one in your game dir.

Shouldn't crash any more.

Good luck.

Hey, i have the same problem. I do not have a torturer, i do not have any add on. Can anyone help?
Title: Re: Crash on "Next Week"
Post by: Xipomus on April 24, 2011, 10:43:36 AM
Start the game. Load the save. Press next week.
Game probably crashes.

Post gamelog.txt from game (is in the directory with the whoremaster.exe).

And maybe I can tell you what's the matter

As Jaxter above says, I have found that the generation of new gangs is one of the causes of the crashes (a new gang will appear available for hire and it will have no name so there is a blank where the name should be).

Yeap, my game crashed for the first time yesterday, I never used torturer before that and the problem went away after I've disabled that option.

Last two times I played the game, it crashed when I order a girl to do a beast capture for the first time ever for that game session.


Any suggestions on how to track down the offender?
Title: Re: Crash on "Next Week"
Post by: Xipomus on May 15, 2011, 03:59:31 PM
Unique girl of default girl? Could try another girl.

Are you sure you're not going to the catacombs without beasts? Check the Mithra folder then. (Exists. Does it contain files ect).

Could check your gamelog.txt in the root of your game dir. Maybe that contains something.

Good luck
Title: Re: Crash on "Next Week"
Post by: Barinthus on May 16, 2011, 01:08:01 AM
I didn't have the default girl folder in there so I tossed one in from the bundle. 
The game still crashes when I first use beast capture job. 
Will check out the log but not right now - bed time.
Thanks for the suggestion!

If anybody care to check out my gamelog.txt...
http://www.mediafire.com/?17hyjtql8eevj13
I assigned a girl named Surupa to beast capture in the Day slot and sure enough when I clicked on the Next Week, the game froze.
I don't see anything related to Beast Capture in the log *puzzled*
Title: Re: Crash on "Next Week"
Post by: Xipomus on May 17, 2011, 06:55:17 AM
Yo.

Looked at your gamelog. Indeed nog beast capture in it.
It looks like Surupa is a random girl. Could you try to assign an unique girl to the beast capture instead of her?
That way we can check if it is a random girl prob.

Good look. Let us know if it works.

Mmmm perhaps I should revert to 593


Will try using an unique.


Used Bettie Page and it still crashed - http://www.mediafire.com/?bt0ioj860ybokg4 (http://www.mediafire.com/?bt0ioj860ybokg4)



Used 593 and an unique girl - crashed.

I decided to take out all real girl pictures and switched in with hentai pictures that came with the game as well downloaded off this site.


No problems re: beast capture.


So I assume it's something to do with pictures of real girls I had? 


I give up on those now and will be using hentai ones.  If anybody want pictures of real women I collected, I'm more than glad to upload those.

Post by: Xipomus on May 18, 2011, 07:02:24 PM
Sound like a corrupt picture of call.
Thanks for the feeding anwayz.

Could you pack one of the real girls in a zip file and include the girlx file.
I'll clean it up myself.

Just wanna check if I can recreate it.

I had the same problem, that made me panic for a minute!  It seemed to me to be the torturer that was the problem, as soon as i switched her and emptied the dungeon it started to work again.


Edit: Now its working fine again.  Maybe caused by leaving specific slaves too long in dungeons? Hard to tell.

I am having the next week crash with 6.13 no torturer, no matron. Is there a version of this that doesn't crash? It gets very frustrating to get to a certain point repeatedly then have to start over because it keeps crashing over and over..
Title: Re: Crash on "Next Week"
Post by: fires_flair on July 13, 2011, 11:36:25 PM
do you have anyone exploring the catacombs? it was a glitch an update or two ago where the game would crash if you ran out of/didn't have any monster girl, maybe it wasn't completely fixed. maybe try to save more often then you don't have to completely restart the file. the only crash I run into (but I frequently restart my games so I last for maybe a few years) is a random one when visiting the slave market.
also it's been mentioned in at least one girl maker thread that there might be corrupt pictures causing the game to crash.
but no, as far as I know there are no versions available that do not crash

I am having the next week crash with 6.13 no torturer, no matron. Is there a version of this that doesn't crash? It gets very frustrating to get to a certain point repeatedly then have to start over because it keeps crashing over and over..

 I tried to rearrange places in the list of girls so Matron would be on the very top, followed by Explorers, Cleaners, Security and etc. So I've emptied one of the brothels and transferred everyone there and then transferred everyone back in different order... 5 different girls started crashing the game after that :)

 Best way to solve these issues is to open the gamelog after the crash and look at the name of the last girl mentioned. Then reassign her tasks (at least for one week) or just give her free time, fix all issues one after the other on every new crash until the next day works again. I am still playing the same round and I've had no new crashes (No idea what year it is already, I prefer really long rounds) so you do not have to restart the game every time.

PS: I've never managed to get a corrupt image to crush the game on my PC but there were people who posted these problems so I guess it is possible at least.
PS2: If you have trouble understanding the log, when checking the gamelog file look for the last name of a girl mentioned, not at the last line of the log.
