Xpiratez/OXCE Issues
« on: July 19, 2019, 10:06:26 pm »
OK, I'm not even sure if I should call this a bug report.

I downloaded the newest version of Xpiratez after a long hiatus. Tried to start it and it crashed immediately. It does not provide me with an explanation in the command prompt window, as seems to be normal. It just dies and gives me that standard crash message from microsoft.

The logs don't really tell me anything. It figures out the directories, warns me about a missing splash image (even though it's right there), and then crashes once it starts loading the rulesets. Using my config file from the old version gives me the splash image. Not sure what's up with that...

Anyway, I tried some standard troubleshooting, but that did not work. Eventually, I started suspecting the OXCE executable (v5.4.1) was the problem. Decided to start the executable from my old version (v3.10b), and use the newer Xpiratez files. It tried to load and then crashed, but it seems to be due to incompatibilities. The error was explained in the window and all.

After that, I tried just running standard OXCE (v5.5) that I got from here, and it crashed too, which is why I post this here and not on the Xpiratez board. The logs from that are the same as previously. Starts loading rulesets and dies. So, what should I do? I'm at a loss about this really, totally out of my depth.

Piratez are full package, you can't change exe without side effects.
First of all, do you download it to clean directory? If not then old files could interfere with new ones.
Second, "Crash" mean nothing, what exactly message you get and what are last lines in log?

1# Yes, clean install. Twice.

2# It's in portuguese, but this seems to be a standard crash message that windows gives for just about any program.

Spoiler:
Message is this:

Logs say exactly this:

Absolutely. By the way, I saved the dump files from the windows crash message too. Thought they might be useful. I can upload them if needed.
