An exeption occured...
« on: 07 Aug 2003, 12:43 »
Hi there,

I got a mail from somebody, who got this error as he opened my SMA 2 - game, which was created last year with an older version of AGS...

"An exception 0xC0000005 occured in ACWIN.EXE at EIP = 0x004A2C8C; program
pointer is -91, ACI version 2.50.395, gtags (0,0).
AGS cannot continue, this exception was fatal. Please note down the numbers
above, remember what you were doing at the time and notify CJ on the Tech
forum"

I know this "An exception occured..." - messages, I often get them when my computer is driving crazy... when I want to open a game by me... but only sometimes... sometimes the games open without problems.
Now I heard the first time that another person has this problem with one of my games... I don`t know if he get it always and if he tried to open it more than one time.

Can somebody tell me about this error?

A very important piece of information. Ask this person what he was doing at the time, like taking a certain item, entering a certain room, talking to a certain character, or whatever it might have been. :)

It looks like the bug which was fixed later in 2.52. As a workaround he can try changing the sound options in Setup - that sometimes got around the problem. The only real fix would be to upgrade the game to the latest AGS version.
