acwin exception
« on: 03 Apr 2004, 15:56 »
fatal exception 0xC0000005 occured in ACWIN.EXE at EIP=0x0046B158 programme pointer is +5997, ACI version 2.54.522gtags (0,1) AGS cannot continue.
If this means anything to you lot I'm very happy for you. To me, it means that the game I was playing has crashed and, possibly wasted days of my time getting to a point that cannot be passed, not a happy bunny :o

It would help if you told us what game this happened with.

It looks like a problem with the MP3 decoder, so disabling music and sound should allow you to pass that point in the game.

Is there a list somewhere where some of these numbers are explained?
It would help us (to help other people) in case you are not around.

Unfortunately not really, no.

There are a couple of easy things to spot, such as eip +5997 means the MP3 player and eip +379 means a problem drawing the GUI; but otherwise, there is a lookup table for each version which can give rather unreliable results.

Generally, if a crash happens I prefer to investigate it and fix it there and then - it's only when it happens to an older version that it's harder to deal with.
