Track crashes on other's machines?

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by rdmgarcia, Jan 26, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    I just released my first track. It works totally fine here in my computer but when a couple of friend of mine downloaded it and installed it is not working: It goes to the loading image, and actually some progress starts showing on the progress bar and then it crashes.

    Here's the link to the track and should be unziped inside the /locations folder.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Check the textures to see if they are powers of 2 (2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024,2048 etc).
    With my track, my textures were dodgy and it worked on Windows XP. I got a new computer with Vista on and it didn't work, so I had to resize all of the textures.

    I use DX8 and they must be powers of 2 or they won't work.
  4. resizing textures vs. converting to dds

    Among resizing or converting to dds, I think re-sizing would be easier since I wont need to go thorugh the whole series of modifications: remap text in the object, re-export object, re do x-packer, replace object in track and re-export track?

    Am I in the right trend of thoughts here?
  5. Did you guys downloaded and installed the track? I want to know if you guys are actually having the same issue too!
  6. ehrlec, since you seem to have fixed the problem. Would you mind sending me the resized images. I would greatly appreciate them!!!!!
