Ultimate room builder v3.0.0.3962(4f526dc) crashes

Post by Guest »

Laptop with Windows 8.1. gzdoom works fine. Ultimate Doom builder opens my map, but going to visual mode, it crashes with message:
”Ultimate Doom builder has stopped working".
I moved the program out of the program files folder and it worked, but then I updated udb and the problem returned.

With every mapping session UDB creates a UDBuilder.log file.
Maybe that can tell you what went wrong.

Where does it get saved to? I opened the folder where UDB is and there's no logs there

Windows usually stores logfiles for apps in one of the AppData folders
  • C:\Users\computername\AppData\Local\Doom Builder\UDBuilder.log
Likewise, the log file for Slade3 is in AppData/Roaming
  • C:\Users\computername\AppData\Roaming\SLADE3\slade3.log

No. Maybe, since the program didn't actually start (it gets to the splash screen and then spits out the error.

How are you installing UDB? Manually or through the installer?

Could you upload the crash report file?
It would be interesting to see how far UDB progressed with opening the program.

Or,
as a last resort, I do not know if that will help, delete UDBuilder.cfg and let UDB create a new, clean cfg file.

You do have a graphics card capable of Open GL 3.3?
If it is an Intel graphics card, then there have been numerous errors reported. Do a forum search for a possible solution.

I thought that the free updates had stopped - maybe a couple of years ago or more?

And it's the Windows 8.1 main stream support status that has seized. It still gets the monthly security updates until January 10, 2023. The latest:

Well, I fixed it.
Installed the x86 version on top of the 64 version.
