Bug Report: Assigning .ico file causes crash on export?

Postby 8bitsdeep » Mon Apr 23, 2012 2:17 am

Platfrom: Windows 7 (32bit), GE 1.4 (not 1.5, sorry!)

After assigning a .ico file to my game under Game Preferences, future exports crashed immediately. An exe file was still produced but it did nothing but crash when ran. I tried various .ico files, made by myself and downloading premade ones, and the crash still happened.

I used the merge command to merge my game into a blank new game to remove the .ico association with my game. (This was the only way I could find to do this, rather frustrating.) After the merge, I was able to export without trouble so I'm fairly certain it was the .ico association that caused the problem.


Can anyone else confirm this?

1.5 isn't really supposed to export. The files in bin are missing from the download as it is still in beta. Any export really shouldn't work, but you can get it to create a file if you use the 1.4 engines, which I assume you did.

Oh oops, I'm using 1.4, not 1.5.

Just had the same problem even though I never assigned an .ico again, so it was probably a coincidence before. Nevermind!

Hopefully whatever the problem is has been fixed in GE1.5. Looking forward to it!

I wouldn't bet on it. If you could tell us more about what causes it to crash, we can see if it has been fixed, or if we can implement a fix. But if it is a crash bug not already reported, it most likely hasn't been fixed.
