Whenever FindPath is commented out, the program runs fine,

Otherwise, it crashes, it is about to say that the stack has corrupted.

Any ideas?




#include <SDL.h>
#include <thread>
#include <chrono>
#include "general_part.h"
#include "Path.h"   

bool gbSmoothSimple = false;
bool gbDirectional = true;
bool gbCurved = true;
bool gbSmooth48 = true;
bool gbSmooth = true;
double gGranularity = 0.5f;
bool gbIgnoreBounds = true;
bool gbFixed = true;
double gTurnRadius = 0.01f;
double gShipWidth = 0.8f;
int gSearch = 8;

void initGrid();

SDL_Surface* screen = NULL;
SDL_Event event;

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {


    SDL_WM_SetCaption("Pinter Demo", NULL);

    screen = SDL_SetVideoMode(640, 480, 32, SDL_SWSURFACE);

    bool running = true;

    FPOINT start, end;

    start.x = 0.0f;
    start.y = 0.0f;

    end.x = 10.0f;
    end.y = 10.0f;

    FINFO* path = new FINFO();    

    double startDirection = 0.1f;
    while (running)
        if (SDL_PollEvent(&event)) {
            if (event.type == SDL_QUIT) {
                running = false;

        int status = FindPath(start, end, startDirection, path);


    return 0;

void initGrid() {
    for (int i = 0; i < MAX_GRIDSIZE; i++) {
        for (int j = 0; j < MAX_GRIDSIZE; j++) {
            gGrid[i][j] = false;

Yes, run it under debugger, set breakpoint at FindPath line, step into and step by step see what's going on. Check the backtrace, check variables. This way you will solve your problem within minutes. How are we supposed to tell why it crashes if you give us only scraps of code ( without the most relevant part which is body of FindPath()  ) and without any clue what and how your code supposed to be doing?
