KNOWN ISSUES

Postby supermalparit » Sun Jan 29, 2012 6:50 am

Hello.

We have 2 kind of crashes. The game-internal ones and the external ones.

The internal crashes
This kind of crash is a game mechanics bug, it produces a file on the game folder called "error.log", to help us to get rid of the error, please, paste the content in this forum.

The external crashes
This kind of crash produces a big file named "hs_err_....log". Normally this is a kind of crash that we can't solve because it is not a internal game crash. When the game crashes this way, please, look at the hs_err_.log and search this line:
Code: Select all
# Problematic frame:


The next line after this one is the problem.

ATI DRIVER ISSUE

issue:
Until now we saw a few external error, and all of them is produced due the ATI drivers.

Code: Select all
# C  [atio6axx.dll+0x5c5010]


We are checking possible solutions to this crash but, as said before, is a external crash produced by an external application/driver.

Possible workaround:
Upgrading or downgrading might resolve the issue, but it still is an ATI issue. Try to not set the full-screen mode.

LINUX PERMISSION DENIED STARTING GAME ISSUE

issue: when trying to start towns using ./towns.sh you get the following error:
Code: Select all
bash: ./towns.sh: Permission denied


fix: If you downloaded the game from the website, the executable bit is not set after unpacking the zipfile. Please go to the Towns directory and do:
Code: Select all
chmod +x towns.sh


Then try run the game again.

UBUNTU 64 WONT RUN GAME ISSUE

issue: the game wont run on Ubuntu 64 bit with default java 1.7 installed. In the error log you will see an error with something like "WRONG ELF CLASS32"

workaround:
Towns needs java 1.6. This can be either OpenJDK or Oracle JDK. Once installed edit the towns.sh and set the absolute path for the java binary to point to Java 1.6.

THE GAME SUDDENLY SHOWS THE MAIN MENU
issue: You are playing and suddenly the game goes to main menu

This is not a bug. On the demo version, when the game reachs 20/1/1 (day/month/year) the game stops.

OSX CANT START GAME JAVA 1.7 ISSUE

issue: starting the game on OSX while using Java 1.7 gives you the error: "org.lwjgl.LWJGLException: Could not get the JAWT interface" .There is something incompatible with Java 1.7 on Mac and our OpenGL library (lwjgl).

fix: please use Java 1.6 on OSX to start the game

WHITE SQUARES INSTEAD OF GRAPHICS ISSUE

issue: You will see graphics in game, but some items, civilians or monsters are only white squares. No amount of redownloading/reinstalling fixes the problem.

workaround: you can try upgrading/downgrading your graphic drivers. We are not aware of a single fix for this issue.

CAN'T LOAD AN OLD SAVED GAME WITH THE NEW TOWNS BUILD

issue: The game crashes trying to load an old saved game.

workaround: If your old Towns was modded you will need that mods to run on the new build.
