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.

Hi I tried all that but still no luck.
No idea whats going on.
I setup another pc I have
Installed W7 64bit + all Windows updates
Installed VC FA and then the 1.60 update from here.
I tried to run the game and the same thing as the editor does on my other PC
It goes to load then closes.
I downloaded VCstarter and that fixed the game.
I downloaded the editor and dev_editor but they do the same thing on this pc
loads then closes.
I tried everything we already spoke about and still will not load.
Im thinking I will have to setup an XP PC now just to use the editors.
Has anyone made a Dev_Starter like VCstarter to work on Windows after Vista?
I searched for one but can't find any.

Wait... I just saw your MP scripts thread...
http://www.vietcong.info/portal/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=1081&pid=11612#post_11612
Have you got it working now??

Not how I would like. I fired up an old XP pro PC I still have and working on something with that PC.
only 512mb Card and 2gig ddr2 ram but hay it works.
I did a direct copy of my VC folder to that old PC and Dev works. So makes no sense why it will not work on W7 64bit
The only option would be if a Dev_Starter was created like VCstarter then it would work on W7.
My game didn't work either and did the same thing until I installed VCstarter.

So I found the solution by fluke.
Turns out it has something to do with my sound card.
I have both VC and DEV icons next to each other and I clicked on Dev instead of the VC by mistake and it loaded up the editor.
I was not sure why at the time but over a few days I noticed when I have my USB headphones plugged in I can open Dev_Editor.
I tried uninstalling my sound card and disabling it but Dev will still only work with the USB headphone plugged in.
I don't know why this is so, I tried everything else and USB headphones were the fix.
Cheers.
