Crash in Gemini Rue - on 2 operating systems
« on: November 22, 2012, 09:39:40 PM »
I'm sad to say this game-ending bug repeated itself on 2 computers using 2 different operating systems.  Both occurred after successfully completing Delta 6's shooting tutorial, after the speaker congratulates you for your shooting and you are supposed to receive a meal ticket.  The audio starts looping and the game closes itself with an illegal exception error.  I downloaded the game through Steam, but did not play it in Steam. 

My laptop running Ubuntu (and playing the game with Wine) comes up with this error, and so does a desktop computer running Windows 7.  The Windows computer has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti.  The laptop has an Nvidia card as well.

I have changed DirectDraw/Direct3D and many other settings, and nothing works.  Can't play the rest of the game now.  :(

Illegal exception
An exception 0xC0000005 occurred in ACWIN.EXE at EIP = 0x735C19CE ; program pointer is +157, ACI version 3.21.1115, gtags (60,7)

AGS cannot continue, this exception was fatal. Please note down the numbers above, remember what you were doing at the time and post the details on the AGS Technical Forum.

in "GlobalScript.asc", line 782
from "room54.asc", line 701

Most versions of Windows allow you to press Ctrl+C now to copy this entire message to the clipboard for easy reporting.

An error file CrashInfo.dmp has been created. You may be asked to upload this file when reporting this problem on the AGS Forums. (code 0)

I had the same issue, at multiple points in the game. Opened up the .dmp file in Visual Studio and found that the game was trying to write to a file that it didn't have permissions for.
This is almost certainly to do with Windows 7 (and maybe Vista, I can't remember) not allowing most programs to write to Program Files.
You might be able to fix this by running the game as administrator, but I personally went straight for the drastic solution and moved my entire Steam folder to the root folder of my C drive.
