Fixed (hopefully)

Hey everyone!

I think I found the bug that has been causing the random crashes, but the more I looked at the behaviors of the crashes I had been getting, the more I think there is more than one crash bug present, as many bugs show completely different characteristics prior to crashing.

Turns out I may have been wrong about the missiles(ish), it seems that one of the problems was stemming from the chunks the missiles spawned after they explode... I'm not sure why doing what I did fixed it, but I haven't been able to get it to crash as of yet on my machine, so maybe I fixed it(although I highly doubt it)

Anyways, here's the new version, all it has added is that bug fix, so let me know if the game crashes less, and any information as to what was going on in-game if a crash occurs.

Thanks to everyone who's been helping me out by testing this demo and reporting bugs, you've all been a real help, and keep up the good work! Peace Out!

Played for about 10 minutes without a crash, while playing the way I had played before I crashed nearly all the time. Whatever you did must have fixed it.

I've got a question though. Did you implement something new where the screen flickers grey? I never experienced that in the prior version and I'm not sure what was going on.

Played it for about 15 minutes and it didn't crash at all. I noticed that you took the SAM out though, did that have something to do with the crashes?

Yes, when I tested the game on a lower-end machine that happened too...Wonder what it is.

You should put a warning thing in telling people to put their landing gear up if they've been flying for longer than a certain period of time with it down.

Well thats a good sign, hopefully that's the end of that damn bug[grin] As for the flickering grey, I believe that has something to do with the little particle bursts, because it fades at the same rate, and is the same color, I'll get to work on that one too.....

Thank for trying it out!

Oh, I forgot all about that, I initially thought the missile objects were causing the crash, so I took out the SAM, but when the crashes still happened, I forgot to put it back in, I'll upload a SAM'd version tonight...

That's actually a really good idea, thanks!

Thanks for the quick replys everyone!

I got an error. I had already blown up all of the missle sites, and was flying over the town. I was blowing the town up with missles, and one of those windows error report things popped up.
