spawn.exe error?

Hello, this is my first post on CnCNet, and one that I am confused about.

I have just recently completed a map for me and some of my friends to play on.

I have not edited any values or items or added any triggers yet.

However upon trying to test the map the game immediately crashes, saying Spawn.exe has stopped working.

I'm exactly sure what could be causing this, but idea is that the objects that are outside the playfield are causeing some interference.

 

I would love it if someone can help me understand the issue I am currently having.

what game is it? Can you please attach the map to your post so someone can look into it?

It's Red Alert, using RA-ED.

Current;y I'm in the middle of making a replica map to test out a theory.

 

Here is the map, I have also noticed that whilst inside the map editor you can not open other Scenarios and it claims that they do not exist.

 

(By the time of approving this reply, I have found two new issues.)

(Both relating to how the spawn system works.)

You placed way too many things on the map, too bad raed doesn't have a limit like edwin, would be cool if it would have stopped you at some point!

I removed the terrain and started it up with just the trees, only 50% of them actually showed up.

 

Remove half the trees and also remove all these little rocks and it should work

Weird that the rocks cause an Issue since they are part of the Template pack.

And damn that sucks, I was hoping to go for a more authentic approach...

 

Oh well, I'll just design a new map. Unless there's a way to make custom comps?

 

Also the spawns seem to be a bit buggy by themselves, that I have found out.

Here is my replica map (What I completed of it).

Try it 3 times without AI, and 3 times with AI, you'll notice something interesting.

Maybe try to make the map with edwin next time, use ra-ed for triggers and preplaced buildings/units only

 

You should add 8 spawns (just add 2 at each location), I think the only maps that work with less spawns are hte official ones, if I remember right it had something to do with the Official=Yes key in the map

 

The game will always pick the first location randomly and spawm all others as far as possible, so no one will start on the same location if you use 4 players in a map with 8 spawns

I have another map stricken with the Spawn.exe Error.

This one has relatively little on it though, so it's weird why I am getting it.

I have done the proper steps stated by Allen262 about fixing the map deletion error.

It fixed my map, and all data is there, however I can not play on it.

I am certain the Error this time is not caused by too many objects/items on the map.

I will try deleting some things and see how it goes.

(Map below)

 

Please ignore this message, I found the issue with my map, and have currently rectified it.

Still a huge amount of rocks in there :D

 

The limit for rocks/trees is set to 500 in rules.ini (spawn.xdp), might be possible to raise it slightly

 

What game installation do you have btw? Edwin would be perfect for these kind of maps, there is nothing in this or the previous map that edwin cannot place

 

Latest edwin can be found here incase you don't have the high res version:

Tried opening Rules.ini but file was not found (Not sure what the issue is there)

I did remove the tips of the mountains I had placed and that worked.

My next map is definitely going to have stuff EDwin does not contain, (i.e. structures).

Also I have what ever version came with the base DL, so I don't really know.

thanks for the suggestion for the latest EDwin.

And I kind of do like to make really detailed maps, so I might be at a huge loss when making for this game, XD.
