Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Yasss!!!! Good news. Thanks for persevering with me.
A good test would be to go to the preferences icon, find the STeem volume slider, adjust it a bit, and see if anything happens. Hopefully not 😁

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

thanks. I can unpack that now but the user file seems fine.
The error message you attached looks like from an older version of DBST. Have you redownloaded the latest one yet and unzipped it over your current installation?

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Possibly, but even WinRAR can’t unpack it.
You could also try renaming the user.SQLite file to something else, then starting DBST. It will create a fresh file. Will be interesting to see if it works. The underlying code fault will be there though until you download or update to 1.122

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

thanks, but hmm it says the file is unknown format or damaged.
Perhaps just try downloading the latest version (it will be 1.122) from here: https://www.demobase.st/package/DBST_Install.exe .
Thanks for your patience!

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

I was able to recreate a crash by setting my Regional decimal symbol to an apostrophe, and adjusting the STeem volume slider in the Preferences window. I've put in a fix for this and rebuilt and uploaded the installer, so a full download again should fix it. DM - if you still have the crash log (err...

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

That's ok Dungeon, do you mean DBST crashes the second time you run it, but it's ok the first time? That's unusual. Could you go into your /My Documents/DemobaseST folder and attach or DM me the user.sqlite file. It just has your favourites, jukebox and preferences, but I'd like to see one of the re...

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Hi Dungeon, did you download the recovery program from the link above? If so, it sounds like you may need to redownload DBST from the main site. The installer there is the very latest version with the region settings fix. You wont lose any favourites or preferences as they are saved in your My Docum...

Hi Zorro 2 and Dungeon Master!
Could you try running the Recovery.exe file. Hopefully it'll download and fix the issue.
Let me know how it goes!

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Excellent! I can make a patch for the issue. I think when you revert back to your original settings it may stop working again, but you can temporarily do the . thing before you start DBST again until I fix it.

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Thanks I think it does. Would you be able to put a . in your symbole décimal instead of comma, click Appliquer and try running DBST.

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Hi Dungeon Master. Same question to you as Zorro 2, how does your version of Windows display a large number with decimal? For example in the UK mine looks like this: 1,234.56 with comma and dot. Does yours look different?

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Hi Zorro 2. I've managed to recreate your error by changing my Region advanced settings so that the full stop symbol is neither a number group nor a decimal divider. For example, in the UK it'd look like this: 1,234.56 In other parts of Europe it may look like this: 1.234,56 but if you do not have a...

Re: Brand New DemoBaseST

Great news!!! It should warn you when you open DBST if the path is too long. Does your xxxxx username have special characters, is extra long, or anything unusual?
