Share R'n'D Data Between Linux and Windows

Is it possible to share Rocks'n'Diamonds data(levelsets, tapes, high scores, settings, etc...) between Linux and Windows on the same(or different) computer? I've already got my computer set up so I can read/write files between the two. Is it possible to make some links from one to another to get thi...

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

You said that `xbindkeys-config` also failed that way. That should never happen and still indicates a hardware issue. The fact that renaming its config file 'fixed' it only means that you changed it to perform less complicated behavior, thus avoiding the danger area. This one turned out to be an es...

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

I forgot to add ... When it crashes at the end of a level it often doesn't save the high score, and/or change the level completion highlighting.

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

I can't test if it's a particular RAM stick on this laptop "Two SODIMM slots, customer non-accessible/non-upgradeable" I think, but I'm not sure I ran `sudo cpupower frequency-set -u 2200MHz` before starting the attached dbg session. This bug maybe related to the other bug I posted. "Level completio...

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

Just found another program that has the "double free detected in tcache 2". `xbindkeys-config` it would crash this way right at startup. I renamed it's config file* and it no longer crashes this way at startup. Perhaps this is a similar issue that RnD is having with me? *(so it won't use it, renamin...

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

So there's the question: Do you have "game engine snapshot mode" (unter "setup" -> "game & menu") set to anything other than "off"? This was set to 'Every Step'. Just tried it set to off, it still crashes. Based on the name and 'off' it sounds like it won't be able to save game playback even if tha...

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

Would adding more backtraces here help? KDE System monitor say CPU is less than 70C. I've read that this CPU can handle up to 100C. double free or corruption (!prev) Thread 1 "rocksndiamonds" received signal SIGABRT, Aborted. __GI_raise (sig=sig@entry=6) at ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/raise.c:50 50 ....

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

Here's another backtrace when it went back to the main menu. This time did a `sudo cpupower frequency-set -u 2200MHz`(effectively no 'turbo' boost at all now), and had external fan running to cool laptop down. I have a feeling these are related to the 'tape' system being bad. free(): double free det...

Re: Level completion coloring for finished levels gets reset for a levelset after finishing a level

I'm using no custom graphics at all. Perhaps it is different in EMC levels -- basically every levelset has (or potentially has) its own custom graphics. Currently in levelset 'Emerald Mine Club' -> 'Emerald Mine 10'. aka "$RO_GAME_DIR/levels/Emerald Mine Club/emc_emerald_mine_10" Here's my screensh...

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

(I don't mean to offer underclocking as a solution , just a diagnostic. If it's stable underclocked, it proves some hardware stability problem in the system, and you should feel 100% confident returning it under warranty.) I ran `sudo cpupower frequency-set -u 3000MHz`* and it seams to fix the rand...

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

No overclocking ever done on this system. Everything should be at default speed. It's a laptop with "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU".

Re: Level completion coloring for finished levels gets reset for a levelset after finishing a level

I was unaware of this, because for me, all levels are always shown in green. I see a menu with items like: ... 023: LEVEL 23 024: LEVEL 24 ... Levels completed will be in all green. Levels started started but never completed will be in all yellow. and Levels never started will be in all red. [at le...

Re: Level completion coloring for finished levels gets reset for a levelset after finishing a level

This same levelset reset the level completion coloring back to red again for all it's levels. Not sure what caused/when it happened this time, just started RocksNDiamonds and saw that they were all red again for this levelset.

Re: Crashes, most often when starting or finishing levels?

Do you also get these crashes when using the pre-compiled binary from the tar.gz package? Just tried it, and after awhile of playing it froze like before [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled] Using host libthread_db library "/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libthread_db.so.1".
