i think that’s some my problem, not VCMI.
i’m dev of one project, and i know that 80% of problems - it’s hand problems of users. but dev must waste time for insight into the problem - time that could be spent on useful code.
can anyone with normal working VCMI upload anywhere ACredit.smk ?
also if anyone can compile VCMI without playing this video - plz upload compiled .exe too.
If the OS you are running on is case-sensitive about filenames have you made sure it’s all in uppercase? My ACREDIT.SMK is also 39460 bytes, with the MD5 sum being 3057018d97b462cd21004302585ef862 and comes from a Heroes 3 Complete installation.
Looks similar to #435. Is VCMI installed on your OS partition? Has VCMI privilages necessary to create, modify and delete files in its folder? Is there any change if you run VCMI as an administrator?
Since you say that ACredit.smk exists (and I assume that it’s in the main VCMI directory) than uploading-downloading it is pointless. It wouldn’t work anyway, since VCMI extracts it every time from video.vid archive.
The only thing that puzzles me is why ACredit.smk crashes, when intro videos (3DOLOGO.SMK and AZVS.SMK) are played properly.
Does H3:WoG work properly on that installation? If it’s running, then VCMI should also run. If not - then we have a bug.
And what you’d do with it? VCMI will overwrite it anyway. I’d suggest quite the opposite - you upload your file That way I’ll be able to say if it is the file broken or something in your environment.
The point is to find the source of the issue and - if possible - fix it.
Thank you for the file, I’m able to reproduce the issue now.
Your ACREDIT.SMK seems to be encoded with a newer version of smack than rest of H3 videos (first 4 magic bytes are SMK4 instead of SMK2). I’ll try looking closer into how H3 handles it.
Thanks but there’s no need - I’ll simply update my video.vid with your file
