I keep getting this error when I try to play Doomsday

Recommended Posts

Doomsday Segment violations suck...badly...

Are you using a custom map or stock iwad e1m1?

Most likely its a problem with the map (or something happening that it doesnt like, like shooting directly into two lines close together (kept getting SVs on my DM map with fake 3d floors).

If its a stock iwad, its either a bad iwad or (sometimes) a problem with your settings.

It's the original Ultimate Doom wad and it does it right when I try to start it. I don't know if this affects anything but JDoom (Not the most recent with polygon enemy models, just with mouse aim, jumping, and lighting effects) works fine.

Use the wad in a different port to see if any problems arrise. If none, try a different map (custom or otherwise) and see if it still happens.

If it does, try turning off one thing at a time in your settings to see if it goes away.

The latest playable version of doomsday is 1.8.6. You will always get random errors with betas. Do not use them. At least it is my suggestion based on experience

Ok, I got a newer version, installed the 3D resources, and it appears to be working. However, there's now a strange glitch. Whenever I kill an enemy, the game feels the need to spawn Arachnatrons that die seconds later.

heh, that's funny :) I think the problem is in your 3d resources which are incompatible with your version of binaries

It's weird. They don't move, they don't have hit detection, they become corpses seconds later and disappear. So, what do you recommend? That I get a different resources pack?

Could you kindly post up the contents of the doomsday.out file after you run the game and it crashes. Thanks

I do not use DoomsDay at all. I only know that all problems with 1.9 betas was solved with 1.8.6 on some russian forum. I think DaniJ will help you

It hasn't crashed since the Violation error, it just makes arachnotrons spawn.

It sounds to me like something is really wrong with your install.

Are using a modified IWAD? Are you using older/newer DED definitions with the wrong version of Doomsday?. Perhaps you have some crazy DEH patch loaded when it shouldn't be? Are you trying to use the shareware IWAD with DOOM2?

As previously mentioned, please post your Doomsday.out and I'll be able to help more easily.

It stopped doing it, it must've been a temporary glitch. If it happens again, I'll let you all know. Atleast this proves it wasn't the WAD itself.

Oh.

I'm glad its working OK for you now at least.



I'm actually shocked it works so well. Now that my computer has time to adjust to the 3D models, it hardly ever lags anymore.

Well thats good to hear :)

Be aware though that there are some (fairly critical) issues with 1.9.0-beta5 (however if you use OpenGL and don't turn off dynamic lights you'll likely be OK), hence why we released 1.9.0-beta5.1 shortly after. I would suggest you upgrade to that version (however bear in mind that TNT and Plutonia won't work as support for sidedef packing was temporarily disabled for that release). You won't need to reinstall, you could just install over the top of your existing install.

I feel stupid. I have the 1.8.6 version, I'm going to get the 1.9.0-beta5.1 now.

Did you install 1.9.0-beta5.1 over the top of your 1.8.6 install? The 1.9.x architecture is significantly different to that of 1.8.x so "upgrading" by installing over the top only works when doing e.g. 1.9.0-beta5.1 over 1.9.0-beta5.

Start Snowberry and go to the "settings" tab and in the "Developer" options sub-page is a setting called "Verbose messages", set that to Level 2. Now run Doomsday again and post the contents of Doomsday.out if it crashes again.

Another thing to try is to not load DOOM2.gwa. Doomsday shouldn't be using pre-supplied GWA files as it has its own GL node cache. It is possible that the configuration used in the creation of that GWA file is not compatible with the format Doomsday expects the nodes to be in.

It gave me an error but, since you edited your post to include this, I'll post the contents later if need be. I still don't get it though, why would it work on the older version?
