jDoom's weird message

Recommended Posts

Hello, I just downloaded jDoom ver 1.7.15 with installer, got everything up and listed all the wads. Now, when i try to play, all the things it has to load are loaded, but just when it's about to start, it gives me this message:

"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Buffer overrun detected!

Program: xxxxx\Doomsday.exe

A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must be now terminated."

Well, i don't have the faintiest idea of what that means.
Help, anyone?

It means that there's a programming error somewhere - specifically some internal variable was defined too small. Visual C has an option to detect some of those and output the above error message.

Hmm I've not seen that one. Does the same happen with the Doomsday 1.8 Release candidate 3?

You might want to use a memory test program called memtest to see if you have any flaws in your memory (hardware wise). A flaw in a memory stick can spell doom (no pun intended) for any application being run and even xp reboots randomly.
