Demo Crash on PC
I missed this, apologies. Got caught up post patch of KSP which buggered up my main mod for it, then sulked off and got hooked on FO4. I'm still good to help, so PM me the PDB and I'll have another look.

Sorry for not getting back to you yet chaps. I managed to get on the testing team for an update to one of my favourite games and I've been snowed under with that and promoting my own recent release. I haven't forgotten helping out with Sol Trader and should have some time to help track down the issue I'm having with the demo guesstimate middle of next week.

Thank you. I'll see what's what and hopefully get something useful for you.

Roger that chap. PM me your comms preference if you'd rather not just risk an unsecure link. E-mail or irc or some chat network or whatever if you prefer that.

Thanks Chris. You have a good break chap. I'm at your service when-ever. Love what you're doing, have from the first time I spotted the game, and always happy to help any way I can.

I'll pull some shots together np.

EDIT - Good gallery here. I'll see if I can figure out how to embed it. http://imgur.com/gallery/sz2Am/new

The game runs on just about any Android device, available from Google Play and Amazon, and is also available for PC and (iirc) XBone from the Windows Store. We're also finalising an iOS version, just waiting on Apple.

It does need some screen real estate so we're planning to add a compact mode for better scaling of the game on smaller devices like phones.

I personally play it on the telly with the new Google TV stuff or on my PC.

Note 1: The exe has to be opened as a Project, not a File.
Note 2: VStudio may want you to restart with an admin profile.
Problem 1: VStudio prompts "Debugging information for Sol.exe cannot be found or does not match. Cannot find or open the PDB file. Do you want to continue debugging?" I ignore this and hit yes.
Problem 2: Sol Trader then goes full screen and the main menu appears. Does not accept mouse clicks. With VStudio running in the background I can use Windows toolbar hover to determine that VStudio has kicked out an unhandled exception but Sol Trader refuses to release the screen. Even after calling up Task Manager I cannot alt-tab to any other process, including Task Manager. This forces me to do a restart of the PC and I'm unable to get anything useful as a result.

Is there a command switch I could use Chris to force Sol Trader to start windowed?

EDIT - The missus managed to get shift F5 to do its thang on VStudio. However, this means all I have so far is this:

First-chance exception at 0x008A7F52 in sol.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x00A51000.
Unhandled exception at 0x7192D9C1 in sol.exe: 0xC00001A5: An invalid exception handler routine has been detected (parameters: 0x00000003).

The program '[6584] sol.exe' has exited with code 0 (0x0).

Not the callstack you wanted. It had nothing in it.

EDIT the second

I get music and a working game when I use compatibility mode to force the res to 640x480. This does cause my GPU and monitor to have an argument when I shut it down again. That makes me think we are seeing an issue when Sol Trader tries to use my native res of 1366x768.

@Chris - PM/e-mail me some basic steps to get what you need. I'm on VStuido Express 2013 for Windows Desktop but hopefully that won't make a difference. Cheers.

Same initial issue with this build Chris. I suspect it's going to be the Catalyst drivers because it's always the bloody Catalyst drivers. I've a lot on today but I'll see if I can get that callstack for you at some point.

Thank you Chris for the new subforum and the ok to promote the game me and the missus have just released.

It's not nearly as ambitous as Sol Trader. It's a Spa*cough* Inva*cough* clone available from the Windows Store, Google Play and Amazon and it is of course cheap as chips. Drop by diealienscum.com for more info and links to where you can get it.

There are no in app purchases or unecessary permission requests. We are planning content patches and a compact mode for phone play, which will be free to existing customers.

Well done chap. I can sympathise when it comes to time spent on promoting. I'm in that hell myself at the moment.

Aye I do.

I'm an indie dev myself so I've tried a few...things... but no luck so far. Since I can't even get past the smoke test I'm a bit stumped as to how to help. I'll let you know if I suss anything.

Same issue here. The main menu appears, but the screen is frozen. Any attempt to click results in faded white out, shortly followed by a CTD with typical Windows dialog. I'm on Windows 10. 16 GB RAM. Intel i7-4771 3.50 GHz. AMD Radeon R9 200 / HD 7900 Series 3072MB GDDR5.
