Beta 8 and ESC key

Recommended Posts

Occasionally when I press ESC to quit my project, my PC reboots! This doesn''t happen with earlier betas. I''m using Radeon and WIN2K. Thanks in advance for helping! Petrovski

Sounds like a memory leak. Make sure you are unloading all of your entities and objects, and also make sure you include the uninstallkb command.

Anything missing?

//Clear memory
PR_FreeCamera (camera);
PR_DeleteAllTextures ();
PR_DeleteAllMaterials ();
PR_FreeParticles ();
PR_FreeEmitters ();
CloseCharacters();
//Shutdown
uninstallkbd();
PR_ShutDown ();

Thanks in advance for helping!

Thanks Rich

Now I see why you are asking for global delete objects & entities! I had assumed PR_Shutdown did this!

Chris, what have you got to say on this?

Thanks in advance for helping!

Do you also have to delete instances of objects (EntityNode''s) created through OM_AddInstance()? They don''t seem to cause memory leaks if not deleted at exit.

LS_FreeLevel will free all of the entities and objects for you.

DX8 doesn''t like it when you exit a program and don''t free the interfaces. After a few times of not cleaning up it decides to reboot. I am thinking of tracking every DX interface in a linked list and making sure the reference counts are 0 when you release them. It could be used to clean up automatically but it would be better used as a tool for debugging to find where the interface leaks are in your application.
