I checked PB again on a shitty laptop with the latest LZDoom test build. Everything got a lot better and PB now doesn't crash

All the same, I got an error when I started using the newest LZDoom build. Everything was fine in the build dated October 10

The only relevant change in the last build was related to loading GL nodes. This is a different problem.
I've found another missing null pointer check that could be problematic so try the next build.
That said i could not reproduce the crash around that area but here with 4 GB of ram windows almost froze while debugging, i quit the game fine but the task manager closed and the windows explorer crashed. The engine was "only" using 1 GB of ram tough, that with default settings and you've set PB to the max. And then the mod is heavy WIP and there's a wall of errors in the console.
About those null pointer checks may be it's better to just not return null but there are already a lot of them and i'm not sure if there could be a performance impact or not and then may be those checks should be removed for consistency.

Thanks for the reports. I think this time it's fixed for real. :) It crashed after an hour when i died and alt-tabbed to check ram. In the end seems that half of the null pointer checks were missing.

Once again I made sure that Direct3D is the best rendering for me

Glad it's working now. In theory hardware rendering should be faster.

It depends on the specs and the situation though. I can run LZDoom at very high framerates on my desktop PC dual-core 3GHz, yet in hardware render i get very poor framerates (50 at best in vanilla maps) this is a extreme case but you get the idea.

The new LZDoom build also works great with PB. Great job.But I have a question: when will the release version of LZDoom be and what’s new in Dev Build?
