  • Wow, problem after problem, atleast it didn't crash on all clients. You might want to make a thread for this on the mapping section and see if anyone can help you there.

  • [QUOTE=Breadman;30095704]Got a dilemma now. Sent it to about 7 clients last night, final test etc. On 4 of those clients it didn't work. The other three it works fine. We've all tried clearing our gmod folder etc no addons. I'm clueless as it does not provide us with an error, it literally says "hl2.exe has stopped responding." So right now it looks like it's selective in terms of what it's going to run on and until I can pin down whats stopping it from running on other machines I can't release it (Which is what I was going to do today.) Very fustrating. EDIT - I should have clarified It crashes as the map loads. Some pictures of our latest testing session?

Just a random idea.

  • It's been narrowed down to garrysmod. It runs on all clients in Episode 2 but crashes in single and multiplayer in garrysmod. (For those 4 clients that it was crashing on. Works as intended for the others)

  • Well, if it helps at all you might be able to get them to give you their crash dump files, which are .mdmp files and should be located in their /<steam name>/garrysmod folder. Hope that helps finding the cause at least!

  • So close, yet so far! Atleast this time the flaw isnt part of you map ( i hope not =P ) but actually Gmod. Fingers crossed for this being the final hurdle, i dont care if i have to be patient for another month. This map is damn worth it, and so is it's auther and crediters. Also cant wait for future projects from you if you plan on any =D

  • This evening is revealing some more issues. I can run a server, and it runs fine. If my testers try to join they all crash. So when they run a server and I try to join - I crash. I just don't understand. I'm clueless. =( EDIT - Found a lead. Onto something.

  • So here it is. If the server creator runs GH2 right off the bat - It's connectors and possibly it's client will crash. However. If the server creator first runs a normal map (Say gm_flatgrass) Then changes it to ghosthunt, they can play - and then everybody else can join. So strange.

I wonder if Garry (or some source coder) could ever pin down the cause of these bugs in the Garry's Mod. Since Every other Source Games features work fine, this for once most likely doesn't have anything do with Valve screwing something up.

  • thank god i was gonna ask you to remake gm_ghosthunt 1 if you dident find a solution for gm_ghosthunt 2 but remaking gm_ghosthunt 1 seems like a good idea [editline]29th May 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=LifeIsGood;30050110]I talked to Breadman a while ago, he said he'd love to play gm_ghosthunt2 on my server when it's released.[/QUOTE] If it does work maybe i could join, do you think you could give me a link to the server name before you set it up?

  • So it's either putting instructions with the map how to play it or try to figure out the problem (wich probably has to do with gmod)
  • Avatar of Breadman
  • It's so client selective right now. I don't even know what makes it work on one and not on the other. The stuff we tried last night seemed to work but this morning on other clients the map still isnt loading despite that. The funny thing is, Ghosthunt 1 isnt loading either. And they are vastly different. Anyhow I've got a video to upload at somepoint of last nights stuff. Contemplating on when to release this. Don't want to release it and have 9 out of 10 clients crash.

  • How about you do a public beta test, and create a steam group page for it. Anyone who fails to connect could post their specs, addons or other things that you think might cause problems. That way you'd get a much larger sample size of people with the problem and you could look for some common factor in all of them that might be causing the problem. Although, it would be a lot of work to wade through it all.

  • I don't think its your map. I honestly think this is garrysmod. I've seen this issue on other servers and maps. I dono what it is but it is annoying.
  • Avatar of Shaolin
  • Garrysmod is totaly full of content with insane potential. Including wiremod, Life support and loads of other thingsi cant think of right now Yet it fails when it comes to what matters most, getting others to be able to play a map with you... Hope you find a solution soon. Being patient as ever, but with my friends playing the APB beta and it's insane memory leak keeping me grounded with lag every 5 mins im up for a bit of a laugh from GH2. Crawling through a mine with nothing more than flares, glowsticks and a mate. Fun.
  • i agree 100% Icyhealer here btw guys scuse the name .... apparently my other acc has changed its ownpassword so had to make a "checking" account for GH2 hey shaolin :P i know beoing patient for such a map is hard but were managing eh ? cant wait to take u up o the offer of crawling round a mine with a glowstick 50% chance of finding out adreniline is bown sticky and it smells? 50% we cant load it xD 0 % we will scarequit ( i hope) keep it up breadman were all counting on you man and we all are looking forward to it. HOPEFULLY its released tday / wednesday so i can play with a mate but if not , hell thell be another time :P

  • Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from several different clients with fresh installs of Gmod to see if that fixes the problem.

  • Soooo want this to come out today at some point got mate round and he took a 3 hour train journey to get here would be a bonus to play it together n stuff but either way breadman has made this map perfect. He has only postponed it for good reason, but tbh i wouldnt mind it being released and having a 1/2 chance of being able to play it. P.S: 5 hours ago, does it take 5 hours to reinstall gmod XD ? Keep working on it man, still cant wait.

  • I've got a fresh install of my laptop, steam and source games. HL2, EP1 and EP2 were started once and the files are in the addons folder. The map keeps crashing at the spawn. Like, I load it up and windows says hl2.exe stopped working.
