Sorry for pulling this thread out of the mud, but since i'm testing things and i think this game deserves the attention: when midi music stops playing (heared that before my little rabbit ? ;-p) the game freezes aros completely (whether in main menu or ingame doesn't matter). tested on regular 1.5.2 in vesa mode.

reproduce: click icon, do nothing, drink cofee, watch your favourite episode of southpark, etc, 5-10 minutes later game is frozen. cold reboot required to revive.

I presume it is. the music seems to fade out and immediately i notice the freeze (and silence).

If that is on music end or on music 'restart' i am not 100% positive :/

I know i have no right to assume, but since i seem to remember similar issues in the past (other game, also midi background music, although there music didn't 're-loop') i 'assumed' one and one together.

Please read the report only as notice, i know you have other things on your plate and do not want you to be doing these things (if you are still occupied with your studies). in grand scheme of things this bugreport is unimportant. I simply did not want to 'forget' reporting it.

Thanks for listening

Does the crash happen with the latest version from the archives?

It never hurts to check if you have the latest version, especially if the changelog lists the same bug you have

True words BSzili, oh so true.

I'll leave it to rest for now.

Because (can you guess ? ), shortly after my previous post i managed to freeze the game in WiP3 (yes it was the latest version ;-p).

Since it is WiP3, i check it out after deadwood has fixed some of the issues (as i think they might be related), and i need some more time to make sure it does not happen on 'regular' 1.5.2 icaros.

Quick question: is there a new client for DUKE3D I should download and update in Icaros Desktop?

Yups, this one

Old datafiles still required. Take your old icaros install, remove the windows specific executables (if you want to clean it up) and write those files that are present in the archive over exisisting ones.

My latter bugreport seems to be an isolated issue, as i am unable to reproduce (knowing me, it was just my luck or some residu left behind that caused that error).

fwiw:
game options menu sometimes looses track of resolutions / poly mode which causes serious problems for people without hardware accelerated gfx.

When that happens there seem no way to go back to e.g. 800x600x8bpp.

If that is the situation you find yourself in, then simply quit the game and edit duke3dw.cfg and change the variables Screenwidth (to your liking), ScreenHeight (to your liking) and especially ScreenBPP (into 8). save, and restart Duke to let changes take effect.
