[1.9] Game silently crashes on start

Postby tcrow777 » 18 Nov 2010 11:46

The game starts, the screen changes resolution, the screen goes black for 2-3 seconds and then the application terminates without notice and the screen resolution returns back to what it was before I started the application (1280x1024).

The version of Secret Maryo Chronicles is 1.9 with 4.1 background music installed, the application failed to start properly on its first run. This was my first time installing any version of this game.

My system specs are:
  • Windows XP Home Edition SP3
  • 2.8 GHz Pentium 4 with Hyper-threading
  • 512 MB of system RAM
  • ATI Radeon X300 SE with 128 MB dedicated VRAM and latest ATI Catalyst driver

A model bug report, you gave us all the information we need to start with.

Have you tried running SMC from the command-line? Maybe it will print some bug messages before it quits.

I entered "C:\Program Files\Secret Maryo Chronicles\Secret Maryo Chronicles.exe" into the Command Prompt and it executes the program with the crash and produces no output. I can't find any documentation for Windows command-line arguments.

Hm...can you run it with a debugger?

This is better debugger output (I forgot to handle an exception) with verbose output (which may or may not be more or less helpful). I had to attach it because it went ever 60000 characters. :shroom:

It looks like it was compiled with a Breakpoint (a debugging symbol that quits the program when it gets to a certain point). Did you download a binary or is this compiled from source?

I downloaded it as binary and I tried both the installer and the .zip archive and I tried reinstalling and re-downloading.

Through testing on another Windows computer I have confirmed that the proplem is with my computer, not SMC. :? Looks like time for that clean install :P

I fixed it! Apparently (every application that uses OpenGl would crash on start) the ATI Catalyst legacy driver doesn't play nice with OpenGL so I had to revert to an older driver.

The background music is the best!

Should this be closed as invalid?

Probaly closed.
It was a legit bug, not due to screwing up the pixmaps and stuff.

I moved it to Invalid because this isn't a SMC bug, it was a problem with your driver.

I did have this problem a while back and I had to start SMC 17 times until it worked.
