DEV editor keeps crashing
techno
Every time I try to open the editor to try to update a few of my old maps the Ptero-Engine-II Setup window opens ok
I click on OK and Ptero-Engine-II goes to load I see the window for about 1 second and it closes again.
No error messages. I am running windows 7 64bit 32gb ram and I have the latest Directx9c Installed.
I did a fresh install of the game, installed the 1.60 patch and reinstalled the 1.61 editor and still, I get the same problem.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

Nice to see you back into the editing dude - was fun playing your old map the other day.

When I started using the editor again last year, I had the same problem.
I run the DEV editor in compatibility mode for Win XP and also run as administrator... no problems now - just a little slow to close sometimes. My computer OS is Windows 7.

Hope that helps

Thanks mate, when VC server lists died I thought the game did as well Sad I was very wrong.
So I am kind of excited to get back into gaming and map building.
I tried that.
I also did that same option change to all the EXEs in the VC folder.
I removed my Anti-Virus and Malware scanner.
Windows Log Viewer isn't showing any error logs for editor.exe
I turned all background auto-starting programs off
I checked all my drivers are up to date.
Everything I try the same thing happens. Editor window opens for about 1 second, I get to see the loading bar move across really quick
and then the window closes.
Tonight I copied the VC folder to my laptop to test it's not a game file error and editor works fine on the laptop also running windows 7 64bit.
So it's a windows thing, something in windows doesn't like running the editor.
I just thought of something else to try. Turning off DEP for the editor under Windows System Properties might help.
I will report back in a few min.

Turning off DEP didn't do the trick either.

If you're running the normal editor, try the dev edition instead. It can be downloaded from this site...

Also, I don't just run the game as admin, I edited the properties of the shortcut.
So under the Compatibility tab, I ticked compatibility mode and chose Win XP sp3 and also ticked Run program as an admin at the bottom in the Privilege level area.

Yea I had the same excitement myself having dropped the game since 2011.
I PMed you by the way.
