Need help modding (map error when opening file)

Post by mikoc5 »

So lately I've been trying to create a map for OWar as a helping hand for another modder. The idea was for me to basically design just a landscape and allow the other guy to do his magic.

Buuut when I tried to open my map (select the mod -> check "open map" -> go to the skirmish folder where it was -> the "GoingApe" map) to try and do some slight adjustments.... well...
https://gyazo.com/808157af2effe7b2d7dd57b9dd043cae
that happened.
Access violation at address 006D48CB in module 'ow_editorOGL.exe'
Write of access 00003136
and this happens with pretty much any combination of trying to open the map or it's sister copy (literaly a clone of it saved under a different name) GoingApeExport, opening it in DD mode, and launching with admin rights.

What I did:
-A lot of terrain work (height layer)
-Setting down some units (unit layer)
-Grass. Oh god, the grass (grass layer)
-Trees and stones and such (env. layer)
-REcolouring the terrain (terrain layer)
-some resizing was involved

What I didn't touch:
-I don't even know how to modify water but I did touch the layer once. I don't think I modified anything... but honestly I wouldn't know how.
-any sort of script. I don't even know HOW to do it
-Map/sides/anything config (unless, again, I did it by accident)

Map size 142x220 according to the Open Mission screen
System info:
Win 7 Professional SP1 x64
OW steam version 2.0.3.5
Here's the link to download the map: http://www.mediafire.com/download/yo318 ... Export.zip

...and oddly enough after failing to open the GoingApe map I got this error: https://gyazo.com/c7219aefc7bff2b283f2171e60666e07
Fun.

So yeah if anyone has any idea how I can solve this so I can open my bloody map, it'd be great!

If you need anything else, or have a solution, feel free to post it here or contact me on skype under "mikoc5".

Dzięki!

For future reference:
The bug was caused by putting too many environmental objects on the map, and too close to the map edges.
