Gif troubles

Postby BBBen » Tue May 31, 2016 4:53 am

I've had reports of some people having trouble when my game plays animated .gif files. Here's one such report:

Game seems to lock up whenever there's an animated scene - locks up and nothing can be typed/no commands can be sent (submit button and all menus at the top are grayed out)


This player also noted this:

Found work around for the freezing - gotta repeatedly left click on the animation


Should I report this as a bug?

I would.
What game was it? I could take a look and see if it happens on my computer too. Maybe the player had a lot of programs running in the background?

If you can send me an example where it can be reproduced I'll take a look.

I can't reproduce it myself. It would occur in the demo to PAL, which is linked over in the adult forum. I don't think I should link to that here, though. I can't really make a small file to show the problem because it relies on the large gif files in the first place.

Did this user ever try the full game and experience the same problem in the same spot?

I believe so; the report was actually in relation to the larger version of the game but I've had scattered reports of the problem for a while. Incidentally an animated gif can be triggered almost immediately in the demo by typing 'start'.
