Hi Thomas,
The same error occurs with the GMA engine in that it uses the ASCII codes instead of Unicode.
The divide by 0 error happens as the math function codes have also changed.
David is working on re-writing the math functions in Unicode and has been successful so far in a beta of the new engine.

Hi Dark,
I don't know what is causing the crash for sure much less a solution,
but I can tell you that the ascii character code and the Japanese
character set are completely incompatible. That's why computer
programmers came up with unicode. Unicode, which is the default
character encoding from Windows 2000 onwards, includes not just the
standard Western European characters but  support for Japanese,
Chinese, Hebrew, Greek, etc character sets as well. Basically, it is a
universal character code that allows you to support any language and
system of writing imaginable. The ascii characters are more or less
limited to standard English characters such as a through z, 0 through
9, and a few special characters like the pound sign, periods, commas,
tabs, spaces, etc. Not enough to support very unusual characters such
as Japanese or chinese characters. However, that shouldn't have
anything to do with Judgment day crashing.

Hi.

We've recently had a question on the audiogames.net forum from a Japanese
chap called Yukio who's attempting to run Judgement day on windows 7.
Apparently he gets a "runtime error 6 overflow" message.

I suggested he download and install winkit, sinse that installs dependencies and often fixes windows 7 compatibility issues, but apparently this hasn't
helpd as yet.

I did wonder however if it might also be a language thing, sinse I'm not
sure a Japanese version of windows would run standard ascii files the same way as one using the roman alphabet, though whether this has anything to do
with errors I don't know, ---- though of course it might be something
entirely different.

so, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts.

Btw, yukio has apparently E-mailed Liam as well.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
