Doombuilder2 crash!

Recommended Posts


does doombuilder2 have a size limit as to what it can handle? My current wad has 31460 lindefs and if I add any more it won't save. if anyone has a solution to this I will love them forever.

I get this error:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

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

Edit: it most certainly seems to be an issue with too many linedefs. I'm having to delete quite a few. is there any way around this?

That link has a newer version than the official DB2. From the thread that was linked to it sounds like this was a bug that got fixed but never officially released.

DB2 automatically compresses sidedefs, but it was broken in 1157. It has been fixed in the code, but there's no newer official release than 1157 yet.

[edit] Just to clarify, sidedefs are only compressed if there are too many for the map format to handle.
