[RESOLVED] Kerrigan Death crashes game

Me again.

My Infested Kerrigan iscript


Whenever Kerrigan dies (her .grp has been replaced with an unedited copy of the Lurker's .grp) it crashes the game. Update: Changing it to the Devourer death (# 483) has no effect. Not sure what this is now; an iscript issue or a .dat issue. Any clue?

The default Lurker GRP only has 12 frame sets.

I didn't edit the script, though, and the Burrow animations use frame sets higher than 12 (and don't crash).

What do you mean, you didn't edit the script? I assume the iscript in the OP is the one that crashes?

I'm not sure then. The default lurker GRP has only 12 frame sets, and that would certainly crash if you attempted to use higher ones.
...But now that I really think about it, I believe the lurker's GRP is split into two parts, unit/zerg/lurknorm.grp and unit/zerg/lurkburr.grp. That's probably how the burrow animation uses framesets higher than 12 without crashing; the other framesets are from the burrowed lurker GRP.

This might be the source of your problem. You made Infested Kerrigan use lurknorm.grp, right? Did you also check to see if she was using lurkburr.grp, and (maybe) lurkegg.grp? Unfortunately, I can't say for sure whether this is really the source of the crash, since I've never worked with the lurker before due to the likelihood of there being some hardcoded shit with it.



None.

I'm confused.... If this unit is supposed to be exactly the same as the lurker... Why don't you just give it the same graphics in dat.edit? Is it supposed to have a spell or something?



None.

I agree with K_A - I'm confused as to why you're replacing Kerrigan's GRP when you could just change the DAT entry.

In any case, I'm curious as to which GRP file you used to replace Kerrigan's. unit\zerg\zlurker.grp is the one you're looking for, as it has all of the frames. I'm not actually sure lurkernorm and lurkerburr are used for anything.

It is, but all I edited there were the headers to point to the proper entries in Kerrigan's iscript.

I need to make the Kerrigan unit move faster (by default, the Lurker clone moves at about half-speed than the regular Lurker, despite being linked to the same iscript, so I made a new iscript) and I can't edit the move speed on the Lurker iscript without boosting it for both units.

unit\zerg\zlurker.grp was exported, copied, and renamed 'uikerr.grp', then imported into my .mpq under unit\zerg\

Whoops. :><: Forget I said anything.

My best guess with the crash is that there's either something else in your mod somewhere that's causing a crash, or there's something hardcoded. I doubt it's the latter though.



None.

I just replaced the Infested Kerrigan GRP with zlurker, copy and pasted your iscript in and everything worked fine. It must be some other change you've made - what else did you do?

The reason Pron prolly edited his iscript was cuz of that ^
Only flying and hovering units' speed is editable via iscript. For ground non-hovering units' speed, edit it in the unit's flingy.dat.

No. Flying units have their speed controlled by flingy.dat. Everything else is controlled via iscript.

Can you send me this script? PM or whatever is fine. The most I can think of is a misplaced .dat edit or something...

It literally is the iscript in your post, nothing more. If you want, you can PM me your mod and I'll take a look at it.

I took a look at your mod and I killed many an Infested Kerrigan and it did not crash. What are the circumstances under which you were testing?

Fuck it, after tinkering around with the old files it just causes Kerrigan to crash after the unit moves. I'm gonna use the new files that fix the issue without improving Kerrigan's speed. Thanks for the help.

Resolved.
