  • Problem to access twdt arenas

    Hi, I struggle to enter twdtd and j arenas (same for base too probably). I tried twlj as it is probably comparable and it works. I tried to erase all TWDT arena files and download again, it doesn't work.

    It says : DirectDraw error sprite::sprite 80070057

    I tried different things I found on the internet but I still can't enter. Can someone help?

    I think your game is f'd. Make a new install:
    If you're installed in steam, try installer from trenchwars.org
    If you're not installed in steam, try installing in steam

      It doesn't work, the a1 thing in TWDT is the only files neither LVL or LVZ but just LV, maybe something about this and my screen?

      Edit : either this file or the LVZ file twdtboard, as those are the 2 files used for all TWDT arenas. It's about my screen I bet but I don't know what to try.

            There's a file limit length that we were exceeding which was turning the LVZ file to an LV. This may have affected you in a very unpredictable way. I've changed the filename (will force a re-download for everyone unfortunately). Let me know if anything changes.

                Hm. Try ?go twdtdtest. I'm guessing this arena will not have issues.

                Also, can you confirm twdtb has the same problem?

                  Thank you for your time, I know I don't deserve it after how I talked to you but still you try to help me as a good leader, also I misjudged you, I readed what you said on the other thread.

                  Concerning this problem : twdtdtest work, but twtdb have the same error, so I guess this is on the a1 file? I don't think you can solve the problem qan.. I think the problem is either on my graphic component or my screen, and I tried many things for no success.

                    Ah, no worries. And if you experience the problem, others do too but don't say anything.

                    I've set the LVZ to optional (at least for now) until we figure out the problem. Might just be the images are a bit too long and need to be broken open up.

                    You can delete twdt-a1.lvz in the Continuum\zones\SSCU Trench Wars folder, and then turn off this option: View -> Options -> Other -> Use Optional Level Graphics & Sound. Should let you watch finals, hopefully.

                        No problem. We can test later if it's just the length of the images. You might have some luck running in compatibility mode as well (right click, Properties).

                        Does anyone remember offhand if the option to use optional level graphics/sound is enabled or disabled by default?

                          I tried compatibility mode, changed color depth and things like that?

                          For the steam version it is enabled by default.
