[Fixed 1.08][Bug 1.07] Random crashes due to "D3DERR_INVALIDCALL"


#1

Hi,

since my purchase of Production Line I experienced lots of random crashes. The game is ended with no further message. It may occur after 5 minutes of playing, but after 10 seconds as well. I can’t say if any action I perform ingame causes this, because sometimes I don’t even do anything. Just bang.

System: i5-4670 at 3.40GHz, 8GB RAM, Geforce 760GTX, WIndows 7 64-bit

the following code (which seems to be engine related) appears in the error log:

12/2/2017 - 21::0 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::0 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::4 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::4 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::5 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::5 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::7 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::7 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::8 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::8 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::9 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::9 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::10 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::10 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::11 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::11 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::12 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::12 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::13 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL 12/2/2017 - 21::13 - Begin Scene 12/2/2017 - 21::14 - D3DERR_INVALIDCALL

As you can see it happens quite often and it really annoys me, cuz Production Line is a really nice game and I want to enjoy it more than just 2 minutes.

Hi, sorry you are experiencing this. Are you running the game fullscreen? do you have any apps running that might be regularly grabbing attention from the game, by maybe popping up a notification window? does it maybe happen when skype or similar software pops up a message?
Could you email the files found here:
\my documents\my games\production line\debug
to
cliff AT positech dot co dot uk.
That may help me to work out whats going wrong.
Does it happen to coincide with autosave?

Hello Cliff,

thanks for the superfast respond. Let’s see…

yes

no

no, I don’t use skype. the only active “messaging/chat” software I use is steam. I will try to run it with steam offline at sometime and inform you about any change.

EDIT: Nope, deactivating steam doesn’t change anything.

yes, will do.

no, I have some major issues with autosaves as well. I will adress this in a seperate report.

Problem seems to be solved. No further crashes since 1.08. Thanks.

Seems good… I’ll mark the thread as fixed then. I’ll leave the thread open for a while in case it happens again.
