[done] help w/ warvidcon
« on: August 08, 2019, 05:23:02 PM »
i've been using warvid console for a while but it hasn't worked for the last few games i've played. it starts with my war2 launcher bat file like always, but now it just says nothing but "Running" the whole time it's open and doesn't autosave the games after they end. i also tried closing it & starting it manually after war2 was running but it does the same thing.



any ideas what could be wrong or what i can try??? i'm using the version of war2combat that was before iL's recent bunch of releases

yay it's fixed now. i had some random arguments for war2ploader in the bat file & it was hanging up every time i tried to start war2, i removed them & now it starts normally and warvidcon works too. maybe something related to recent updates to combat/war2ploader? anyway i'm glad it's working, warvidconsole is great everyone should get it !!!!

warvid con is not working fine for me. It cuts video to some random parts.
I updating warvideo and paused work on console and tray versions, i plan to fix them later.

Last working version i recommend to everybody is ftp://ftp.war2.ru/war2/utils/warvid_with_ddraw/1.0.0.4_cpusave/

Upd: windows 7?
There's a problem with windows 7 appeared months ago: that broke insight, warvideo and probably other utils:
open the task manager and check the process list:
You can probably see 2 different processes with the same name: Warcraft II BNE.exe
Kill the process that requires less memory and then everything will work fine.

Will be fixed in new combat (4.5)

oh i didn't realize. i was using warvid console for months since it was released & it always seemed to work fine. now that it's working again the new videos it's recorded seem fine too, so i'm happy to continue using it

yeah it's win7 & i did notice the 2 processes, but i also had a problem with rundll32 maxing out the CPU every time i start war2combat and found out it's something to do with the "Game Explorer". i followed this guide to fix it http://ubeogesh-things.blogspot.com/2012/08/resolve-it-finally-game-explorer-aka.html

Quote
For ones that are looking the guide how to resolve, here it is:

1) If you're x64 OS, go to windows\syswow64\ and rename gameux.dll to something without .dll extension
2) If you're x86 OS, go to windows\system32\ and rename gameux.dll to something without .dll extension
In both cases you'll have to take ownership and add file permissions.

If you don't know how, here is a BAT file that will do it for you: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzmX0_bU30dRaGJWdi1iRnV2S0k

now war2 starts fine with no delay/crashing/high cpu and only one Warcraft II BNE.exe process :newthumbsup:

i don't think it was breaking warvid or insight though, but maybe it's because i'm not using latest war2combat? i think i have 4.01. i also have fois latest ddraw & lamby's plugin system. the Warcraft II BNE.exe file from the plugin system does break insight though, it gives this error:



without the plugin system insight seems to work normally.  :ok_hand: hope that's useful & thanks for following up

Not sure if you use warvideo version without blinking and proper .dll for it: http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,4923.0.html

I think the problem with splitting videos can appear after blinking have been fixed...

Yes, that fixes the problem perfectly for those who is ready to rename system dlls.
Going to add simpler and not so invasive fix in next version. You will need nothing to change in your system to start war2 with no such problems...

the Warcraft II BNE.exe file from the plugin system does break insight though, it gives this error:

Yes, that is another known problem, insight doenst work properly with the plugin system, will be fixed in next version also...

oh i missed that release, so no haven't used it. it looks great! the warvidcon I use is i think the same one on the downloads page, it does blink but for me the most important feature is the autosave after each game
