Problem: Single player crashes during AI calculation (Win7)

Postby Omroth » Sun Apr 18, 2010 3:17 pm

If your'e experiencing crashes during AI calculation under Windows 7, please try running Frozen Synapse in "XP3 compatibility mode".

Step-by-step:

1. In Windows explorer navigate to the Frozen Synapse exe, which by default is c:/frozenSynapse/frozenSynapse.exe
2. Right click on frozenSynapse.exe
3. Select "Properties"
4. Select the "Compatibility" tab
5. Check the "run this program in compatibility mode for:" check box.
6. Select Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Windows XP Service Pack 3


(Thanks to AgentIcarus for reporting and testing this)

EDIT: it looks like this doesn't completely solve the problem, but it may help. I'm looking into this and apologise to the Win7 users this is affecting.

On the mac version (10.6.3 OSX), the same crash occurs. I've noticed this on single player missions along with the puzzle mode.

It has happened both during the AI calculation immediately after Prime is initiated (frequent occurrence), and during user controlled calculation (infrequent, happened two times out of 10 games).

I've noticed this crash on WinXP as well, during AI calculation in both puzzle mode and light extermination.

Same thing here. Crash on Mac OS X (10.6.5). iMac 27" 3,06Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4Gb Ram.

The crash happened during AI calculation of level 1 at round 4. The crash was a return to desktop.

Wonderhero - was this the "AI level over a certain level" problem that we talked about?

Otherwise, I thought I had this bug fixed.

Same problem here, with AI set to level 3. However, Windows (7) said the program had stopped working, then after clicking debug and then cancel, the game kept running and popped up the message that the AI had been switched to local. Just got the game, so I have only encountered this once so far.

Hi MrP1us.

I've since fixed this crash and it'll be fine in the next version. For now I reccomend only using AI level 2.

Thanks,
Ian

I am still having the crash-to-local-AI problem playing the campaign on the May 26 release version. I presume that the fix you mentioned May 06 is supposed to be incorporated in that version. Perhaps this thread contains two separate bugs, only one of which is fixed?

Win 7 Pro 64-bit, 10 GiB RAM, Intel i7 950 @ 3.07 GHz. (Not because I like gaming, because we need to run Maya.) I'll try to remember to backup the console logs next time this hits.
The picture is me.

I'll add that I'm getting a crash when trying a skirmish vs the level 3 AI. I'm running OS X 10.6.7 and whatever version is available through Steam.

Console log (hopefully) attached in case it's useful.

I have the same problem like cfnz, but posted it in another thread (thought this was only about Windows) => viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3120

I have the same problem. When I generate a skirmish map with AI Level 3, the game crashes on the background (i.e. if I switch to Windows, I see a Windows Dialog stating that the game has just crashed). After that, when I press the 'Prime' button, the game either immediately crashes to desktop for good, or it just freezes at the process of the AI movement calculation. Therefore AI Level 3 is unplayable for me at all, which is a shame. I really wish I could test this game's AI at its full glory.

I have Windows Vista 32-bit, by the way. The game is bought in Steam.

Same on almost all points - the only difference is that the game consistently crashes when I hit Prime with a level 3 AI (I don't get the freezing that you sometimes see).

Vista 32-bit, purchased on Steam. I'm very happy to submit whatever data might be of help in getting this issue fixed.
