Heretic E1M8 does not load

edited 2013 Jul 17 in Heretic
When I finish E1M7 and close the stats screen, the engine starts loading E1M8 but never succeedes. The doomsday.out contains the following log entries:
Loading map "E1M8"...

  • It seems that it is caused by something from the addon. If I disable the addons, everything is fine...

    P.S. I found what causes that freeze - it is an addon named Decorations Updated 20110322 version 1.01
  • I've not come across this add-on before. Do you know where we might download it for debugging?
  • The pk3 file (decor-decor.pk3) is here: ;)
  • It seems to be getting stuck in an infinite loop whilst trying to spawn one of the plane particle generators. I'm currently looking into a potential fix...

    Edit: This issue has now been fixed for the next candidate build.
  • Great. It is loading the level now. I will continue on with the testing ;)
