Version 1.1 is up!
« on: July 25, 2011, 06:27:19 »
Version 1.1 of NightSky is now avaliable at the download area here! The new version have much better full-screen support that doesn't need to change the game resolution (thanks to Ultimate Walrus for the Multimedia Fusion extension).

Thing is, I'm not yet 100% sure this will work perfectly on everyone's computers, which is why I don't yet dare to update the Steam version before I know people don't have problems with this build. After all, the non-Steam version still let you use an older build of the game.

Steam users who want to try this feature can grab an NightSky 1.1 executable here though! Let me know how this build works for you. If there are no problems I'll update it on Steam too.

in fullscreen, it runs in super-slomo on my computer. But looks nice/correct at least. :P

Ouch, that'll be a problem. If the game changes the minimum requirements, it's difficult to update the Steam version of the game. I must contact Clickteam and see if the problem can be fixed that right now prevents me to both support a full-screen and change resolution mode in the same executable.

On my system it works well, except that I sometimes happen upon a "Program stopped working" error when I press Esc on the main menu. It's not really a problem for me though, other than being annoying.

That's odd. Does the error message provide any more information, like some debug info?

No, just the standard "This program stopped working. Windows is trying to find a solution to the problem."

Aaw, too bad. I'd really need some kind of debug info.

Actually it says "stdrt.exe has stopped working."
Not sure if that's of any help, though... :S

It doesn't.

I doubt any info will help getting this fixed though. Only if a debug build is present with a logfile, then it could be found out where things go wrong.

As in: write every action to a textfile, and see what the last action was.

Well, that still tells me it's a crash in the Multimedia Fusion 2 runtime and not in the new full screen extension. It means it's a bit more difficult to track down the exact nature of the problem than if the crash was in the extension file. I wonder how many machines it happens on.

Uh, Nifflas. When you compile your game into an exe, it will always say its stdrt.exe, even if the error occurs in a .dll file or module.

Nope, it won't. It'll be the name of the .mfx that caused the crash. This have helped me track down many bugs before. Sometimes it can also be a Windows .dll, like the Saira crash some people had that would show the crash happened in ntdll.dll

Hello everyone,

I've bought the game on steam and I've got serious fullscreen problems.
Is Nightsky on steam updated to 1.1?
Where I can find information which version I'm running?

I don't have Steam, but I suppose the version number is in the Game.ini file, inside the installation folder of NightSky.
