Is it normal to have errors in stderr.txt?
« on: March 01, 2008, 08:47:30 am »

I promise I googled and searched the forum before posting.  Smiley

The stderr.txt file gives me errors no matter how I install the program, so I never know if I have a proper install.

Is this normal?

Code:
Warning: Can't open 'lbm/mainmenu.ogg'
'lbm/newgame.ani' -- 171 bytes
Warning: Can't open 'lbm/mainmenu.ogg'
'lbm/newgame.ani' -- 171 bytes

Thanks,

Huggybaby

They're warnings, not errors. Grin These are normal, since there is no main menu music.

Sorry for the sloppy syntax. I guess I'm error free after all. The other warnings appear related to missing content that is planned for the future, like
Code:
VideoDecoder_Load: Unknown file type
'lbm/title.ani' -- 20 bytes
'arilou.lst' -- 315 bytes
'arilou/ariicons.ani' -- 50 bytes...
What about this one:
Code:
_GetSoundBankData(): loading lbm/menusnd01.wav
SoundDecoder_DecodeAll(): WARNING, called with a small buffer (4096)
Should I be specifying a larger buffer somewhere?

No, you can ignore that too; it's harmless. That warning will not be generated anymore in future version.

Is something not working?


Edit: warning, not error

No, everything is fine to my knowledge.
