Hey man, I knew you wouldn't be far.
Why do you think BMS development is coming to a halt? The last update was the last
because the next one will be 4.33
which is not in contrast with
actually supports what I said:
With the development of BMS 4.32 coming to a halt [...]
I stand correct
(haha - forgive me, I couldn't resist)
More seriously now,
No, BMS never crashed on me before. I have correctly reinstalled it with each update every
time they updated it. Though I'm no fan of BMS, I admit I dutifully looked around it after
each update to see if it was made more to my likings. Gotta be honest: never a crash.
Unfortunately I can't tell you when _this_ problem started. I just launched BMS by accident
today (a mis-click, truly). Since I was at it, I went along and decided to fly around a bit.
But I wanted to change a key binding for the DED switch, so I opened the Setup menu (as I did
many times before this day)... and it just crashed to desktop.
Afterward it kept going CTD every time I attempted to open the Setup menu. I also rebooted
the PC, just in case: no change.
So long I don't open the Setup screen, there won't be a crash.
As for the update files themselves, I'm positive they are genuine. They do match the expected
MD5 hash, at least. I haven't tried to uninstall and reinstall. I'd like to avoid that, since
it's not exactly a small thing. Also it makes no sense to undo and redo. If by any chance this
fixes it, it would only proove that the problem is indeed lurking within their code, because
-I repeat- absolutely nothing has changed in my system. Think of it as software set in stone.
That's what my games' O.S. is (if I'm allowed to say it: in this sense I'm more conservative
than a taliban).
