Error message after program start [ZDoom PWAD]

edited 2017 Mar 29 in Technical Support
"Failed to load title picture for game "DOOM 2: Hell on Earth": [OffsetError] (in Block::get) Out of range (7076[+4] > 7078

Any ideas?


  • Is this just a warning message after startup, or does it cause Doomsday to shut down, too?

    One potential reason for message is a corrupt WAD file.

    Did you select any packages into the DOOM 2 profile? If so, could you attach your "runtime/configs/game.dei"?
  • Just a warning message after startup. No packages selected into the DOOM2 profile.
    Version 1.9 with 14,604,584 bytes in size.
    It says "File is not allowed" while trying to attach the game.dei.

    It should work if you append a ".txt" extension before uploading, or better yet, use

    I haven't seen this kind of an error before. Perhaps it would be good to see your full doomsday.out? (copy to pastebin, please)

    Done! Hope it will help! game.dei AND doomsday.out
    Meanwhile I added some packages, but they are not responsible for the error message.
  • Don't forget the post the links here, otherwise I won't be able to find them. :)
  • Lost it! Maybe the txt-files can help.
    Like I mentioned before, meanwhile I added some packages to DOOM2!
  • Hmm, I can't really spot any obvious issues in the log or profiles.

    This error doesn't prevent you from starting Doom 2, though? When you play the "DOOM 2: Hell of Earth" profile, does everything appear as it should in the game title screen? No incorrect colors or other visual artifacts?

    Just to verify, my doom2.wad's MD5 hash is:

    DOOM2 starts correctly without any visible errors! Nothing unusual! The IWAD I use has the same MD5 hash!
    By the way, this morning out of a sudden my custom-profiles didn't show up anymore after starting DE. I had to copy my saved "game.dei" as write-protected into the runtime/configs-folder. DE started with all my profiles shown in the lists, but while starting a game I got an error message concerning the "game.dei". So I removed write-protected and since then DE starts with all my profiles and the games work as well.
    The point is starting DE without having any custom-profiles this morning I didn't get the above mentioned error message!!!!!
    A PWAD called "Core" causes the error message. The custom profile for that WAD had no DOOM2-pic, just black background. This is because of "Core" being a ZDOOM-WAD!
    Sorry, my fault! :#
