Engine Scan Mode Loop Can Freeze Program

Post by Daniel H. » Sat Jun 03, 2006 11:31 pm

If you make an infinite loop out of setting the scan engine repeatedly in opposite directions,
then the program will freeze up. :(

I don't know how important or fixable this is, though...

Could you please provide me with a little test level?
(Please make that level as simple as possible.)

That would make fixing this bug a bit faster and easier for me... :-)

Thanks a lot! We are all doomed now! (Wish I were color-blind... ;-) )

Just checking this issue...
