Wintermute Engine > Can't reproduce

Computer Reset when using wintermute!

(1/3) > >>

Hi there! My first post here is for reporting a (I'm not sure it is xD) a bug, but not without saying that I've recently discovered the powerfull tool wich is wintermute, and I love it!! Good job everybody involved on it's development ;)

And now the "thing"... I have two Pcs, one of them is windows XP, no problem on that one. But I use another PC for working on 3d and video postproduction, with Windows Vista Ultimate x64... the problem is that I open Wintermute, I make some things on it... and without giving errors or anything, my computer turns off and reset itself... I'm almost all the day in this computer, and it just happens with wintermute, it has happened something like 10 times... I tried to install a different version or reinstall it, reinstall the vredist and things like that... but nothing changes.

Thinking backwards, I notticed that it always happens after running the game... I can edit scenes, sprites, scripts and all that things without problems, but when I run the game to check if it works... some time after (less than a minute more or less) the computer reset without advising.

Another thing maybe helps to solve it: This happened to me playing to the "RoseMary" graphic adventure too...

I don't know why is this, or if it's really a bug, but I'd like to know how to solve it, cause I'm trying to learn how to use this fantastic engine, and make my own (little) adventure :D

Thanks in advance!!!

If I were you, I'd check your computer for overheating troubles. Software can't just kill Windows. Crash in drivers can cause the blue screen, which by default restarts the computer. Are you getting a blue screen before the restart?

Hi Mnemonic!! Thanks for your answer ;)   

No, I'm not getting any blue screen... it just shut down, no errors, no advices... nothing... but it's the first time something like this happens to me... and I'm not a technician... so I have no idea on what's happening... but if it's a computer problem, tell me, aI'll check for information (and work on wintermute on my second pc xD) on how to solve it.

Thanks again!!

Do you use this computer to play games? Do they crash?

Yes, I use it to play a lot of games (examples: Call of Duty 4, Runaway 2, Crazy Machines, Command and Conquer Red alert 3...) and working with 3d on this computer... several games give me some error (splinter cell double agent) but just crash the game, not reseting the computer... I have no idea on what can be...
