g200kg - crashes pretty consistently - have to remember not to change the sizes!

I'm running a multi-core E6600 machine - could it be a thread related issue?

Anyway it's a stunning little piece of software! Looking forward to more updates...

i also use E6600 :wink:

please let me know:
* what is happen when crash (just freeze? or popup a access violation alart?)
* only the Black_Gear.knob crash? how about other file (especially that use 'RadialeLine' or not)

Hi there...

* what is happen when crash (just freeze? or popup a access violation
alart?)

It pops up an alert - I can go into Visual Studio Debugger at that point but I only get the assembly language view - I guess if you have a version with debug information I could give you the line number...

* only the Black_Gear.knob crash? how about other file (especially that use 'RadialeLine' or not)

Other files crash too - ie Monotone_Simple.knob

It could be "RadiateLine" that causes the problem, however I just started a test knob from scratch and it seems to work ok....

EDIT: 10 minutes later it crashed resizing!

all are interesting.

btw i found some bugs on 0.98
1) 'RadiateLine' is not work properly on non-square widget
2) 'Rect' width is wrong. it s/b 0-100% range

will be fixed next release.

BazzaTron,
in my environment, it does not cause crash but display broken image. probably same issue i think.

Rune L-H, 'KnobRender' author is here? :o great thanks for the comment

:)

I am afraid that I am also getting some random crashes when changing the "Output Bitmap Size" or "Number Of Images". (using AMD 2x3800)

It looks like the KnobMan is more stable if I select all digits in one of the 3 entry-boxes mentioned, then type one digit and wait until the frames are rendered, the type the next digit and wait again until the frames are rendered ...

thanks!! i got it.

exactly it is a thread related issue you mentioned. especially use 'SpinButton', our CPU seems be defeated by piled jobs.

please try this. Preference page parameters are once buffered.

* and RotationMask is also done :)
* layer name is moved to menu (also r-click of tabs)
* visibility control is also implemented on r-click menu

Version 0.99 works great! No more crashes. The "Set" button is a good idea.

I sent you a small donation (from barry.p501...) buy yourself a beer!
