Patch Testing

Postby John » Wed May 17, 2006 12:01 am

We're doing another round of maintenance to Uplink -- bug fixing and the like, with a view to an updated patch. We have enhanced the bug-reporting capabilities, so if you get a crash report, we should have a better chance of being able to debug it.

The changes can be found here. There is some new resolution changing code in there as well, so please try it out especially if you have a widescreen monitor. If you have any comments about the patch or bug reports, please post them in the "Bug Reports" forum.

If you have a crash, hopefully the crash reporter will come up and send the crash dump to our server. It should then give you a crash reference, which you can use to relate your bug report on the forums to the uploaded crash report. You can also find the crash reference at the top of the ERRORLOG.TXT file.

Note that you will need to have an existing installation of Uplink to test the patch.

Please download the patch here.

It's good to see that you are still keeping an eye on Uplink!

One question though, seeing as this is the first patch since the release of the DevCD, will there be a DevCD patch as well?

That statement alone makes me happy. :)

Yeah, I'd also like to see a DevCD patch for this, mainly because a lot of it could be incorporated into Onlink...

Are there any changes here that will be ported for the Linux version?

Yes, if any cross-platform bugs are fixed, we will release a linux patch too.

Actually, Burningmace, John asked me for a list of stuff I fixed before, one which was the error report system and another the wide-screen res one. I also had an auto-updater system. But I don't see that here. Or LanLade. Or a number of other fixes.

Also, while I'm at it...

John! Uplink as Vanilla code is memory leaky! I offer you Slasher 2.0 if you wish to fix these ;)

Also, tiff handling is better... in part because of updates, but also adding support for certain things, such as the excessive/stupid tags Adobe Photoshop tends to add. It really clutters the log.

Thanks Miah, those tiff fixes would be much appreciated. Please can you send them to me via email?
