Hi friends. I really apreciated your work in this mod. Congrats for all of the modders.
My version is 2 cds. But newly i have a big problens.
After install of the Xwaupgrade 1.6 i dont play the campaign game anymore. After the briefing screen, on the load before a mission starts my game crashs to desktop. Dont shows a error message, nothing. And crashs to desktop.
I tryed Keep updated all the hooks are writed here in Topic for beginners.
I have do a fresh install of XWA. After following the steps of the Topic for beginners. The games runs Very well in the concourse screen and some meeles or skirmish mode. Sometimes in the midle of skirmish, the game crashs too. But i tried to Begin a mission, the same problem. After the load screen game crashs every time.
Im Crazy because i loved play the campaign with the New graphics.

Please someone could help me to fix this issues?.
Thanks Very much.

Hello,
Can you attach a crash report from the events viewer?

1. Go in the Events Viewer.
2. Browse to the crash event (in Windows -> Application)
3. Select and Copy the text
4. Paste it here

Have you tried to update the ddraw.dll dll to the latest version (there is a link in the Download section) and the hooks.

I will try again replace those files and i'll reply here if works.

Thanks.

I think this crash may be related to the 32-bit mode hook. Another thing you can try is disabling this hook by renaming "hook_32bpp.dll" to "hook_32bpp.dxx". The graphics will look a bit different; but if it doesn't crash, then we found the problem.

If this is the problem, then the real fix is to use ddraw 1.3.7 with the latest version of the hooks.

Hi guys.
I Will rename that file to "hook_32bpp.dxx". But do i need to replace the "xx" to the value corresponding to my directx? For example "hook_32bpp.d11".
Thanks for your help.

You don't need to replace the "xx". The file extension just have to be different of ".dll".

Hello,
Here is an option that you may test, but it requires exe editing.

Code: Select all

At offset 0000DE, replace 0F with 2F.
At offset 000120, replace 000000 with 0EBF21.
This will set the LARGEADDRESSAWARE flag to XWingAlliance.exe.
This indicates that the application can handle addresses larger than 2 gigabytes.

The easiest way to apply the patch is using XwaExePatcher.

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ArrayOfPatch>
  <Patch Name="LARGEADDRESSAWARE flag">
    <Item Offset="0000DE" From="0F" To="2F" />
    <Item Offset="000120" From="000000" To="0EBF21" />
  </Patch>
</ArrayOfPatch>

This wasn't already set in the standard patch/hook set??? :? Seems to me like it would have been a low hanging fruit for any of the crashes chalked up to running out of memory (provided one has enough physical RAM). Is there any downside to allowing the game to access an extra gigabyte (or is it two?) of heap memory?

With the flag set, a 32-bit process can access up to 4 gigabytes.

The flag is part of the PE header. It is evaluated only by the EXEs. It has no meaning for DLLs.

The patch is not part of the hooks. I think that there is no downside to apply the flag.

Yeah, but I've also read that windows reserves one of those gb for itself, and I can never remember if that gb is in the lower half (so by setting the flag the space available to the game goes from 1 gb to 3, a gain of 2) or the previously-inaccessible upper half (so the space available to the game goes from 2 to 3, a gain of 1).
The flag is part of the PE header. It is evaluated only by the EXEs. It has no meaning for DLLs.
I meant "patch/hook set" as a single unit - the standard set of modifications. Mostly to express surprise that this hasn't been tried yet.

I guess the PE header is read and applied (by the os) before a dll would get a chance to modify it (in the same fashion as the other runtime patches applied by the dlls, I mean), so this could only be done with a static exe patch.

From MSDN:
On 64-bit editions of Windows, 32-bit applications marked with the IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE flag have 4 GB of address space available.
There is a difference between 32-bit and 64-bit OSs.

So would this benefit installing generally at this point?

Hi guys, thanks for your help. But i dont have any idea how edit de .exe file. I have tried open the .xml file created in the folder of XwaExePatcher-1.0.17. I followed de Readme file.
Then i've opened the .xml file an add a string that you wrote above.

I saved the file and now i dont know what i do with this file?
Is need edit this file for the game to have access for more then 4 Gb of the RAM?

Yes, open patcher.xml with Notepad and add the above patch.

I've opened the .xml files. And i added the string that you wrote above. The file looks like this:
patch.jpg
Now i saved the .xml file. And opened in "XwaExePatcher-1.0.17". A a screen with this patch appears. Then i applied "Largeaddressware flag".
After this, i move the new "XwingAlliance.exe" to "X wing alliance" root folder.

I need to do something else?

Jeremy, will these offsets eventually be added to one of the Hooks? Or will I have to add as a *.202 file to patch the exe?

A .202 file will be needed to patch the exe.
This patch can't be set from a dll.
