Doombuilder 2 not working

Recommended Posts

So I reformatted my HD and needed to redownload DB2, but now I get unhandled exceptions whenever I try to start a new map. I found an old thread of someone who had the same problem, and downloaded an older version, but that version doesn't open at all. So yeah, I'm a little annoyed about this.

Okay cool, that'll work for Doom 2. I still need something I can edit Ultimate Doom and Heretic in though.

E: I am still getting these errors:

IndexOutOfRangeException while loading effect display2d.fx: Index was outside the bounds of the array.
Initial message:

I'm pretty sure you can work with any IWAD if you set it up correctly.

@VGA : I don't know, how do I figure that out?

What video card does your PC have?

If you have no idea, try using this.


While a good program, the problem with GPU-Z is, that it will not check which level of OpenGL is supported by the graphics adaptor.

Use GPU-Caps-Viewer instead. It can also stress test the graphics adaptor.

{edit}
I just reread your OP.
If you want to stick with Doom Builder 2, then download the installer Doom Builder 2.1.2.1553 from http://doombuilder.com/index.php?p=downloads . This will install all the files required by DB2, such as the correct .NET Framework and SlimDX. Once installed, then download r1715 from http://devbuilds.drdteam.org/doombuilder2/ and the appropriate plugins from http://doombuilder.com/index.php?p=plugins .

Bloodshedder pointed you to GZDoom Builder. While it can create maps for vanilla Ultimate Doom, you would have to make your own config files for vanilla Heretic. Unless, of course, you want to go the ZDoom format route. In that case, simply download r2382, the latest incarnation of GZDB.

However, do not mix and match DB2 and GZDB in the same folder.

This is the rather long error message I still get from DB2 even with that new download you pointed me to. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem. Please tell Codeimp to fix this.

Spoiler

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Nobody can fix something that is clearly you running DB2 on ancient graphics acceleration. Or complete lack there of.

Well then why was it working a few days ago :P

Was that after reformatting?

Doombuilder2 is no longer updated or supported, hasn't been for over 2 years.
Therefore, if you stick with DB2, what you have now is all you get.

On the other hand, GZDB is the continuation of DB2, with emphasis on ZDoom formats,
including GZDoom effects. See http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=32392 , required system and software.

DB2 and GZDB need DirectX 9 for rendering.

Have you installed the latest drivers for your videocard?

Did GPU_Caps_Viewer confirm that your videocard is suitable?

Here's the videocard I have:

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gt-635m/specifications

I have two hard drives I only redid the one with my OS on it, the other, which had DB2 did not get changed. But after I reinstalled my OS, for some reason, it no longer worked, and now I have all these other problems that I didn't have before reinstalling everything. Also, I think my driver is up to date, but I can check on that later. Gotta go to work.

Reformatting the harddrive with your OS will delete every important support program.
Installing the above DB2 would have reinstalled those particular support programs

    Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5
    SlimDX Runtime .NET 2.0 (January 2012)
You can check in Control Panel - Programs.

If they are not there, then not all is lost yet.
Download DB2r1715, also as suggested above. In there is a folder Setup, with those two support programs. Install them.

.NET framework installed?

This wouldn't result in a readable .NET crashlog if the framework wasn't even installed.

Well, I figured out that I didn't have the latest drivers installed for my graphics card. So I updated them, but I still get that .NET framework error, and Gzdoombuilder gives me the error back a few posts. (Sigh)
