CC Designer stoped working

Recommended Posts

just now, my CC Designer stopped working. It crashes when I try to open the program. I even tried deleting the program, downloading and installing a new one and it still does it. :blink:

can anybody help?

I personally prefer CCDesign because I can juggle my levels around and not accidentally duplicate one and lose another by doing so.

I'm a fan of CCDesign (partly because it's uploaded on my site, partly because I like some of the features more). But it's been a while since I used anything else, to be honest.

 

If you want, I can try to contact the programmer. We haven't spoken since a little bit before CCZone Alpha collapsed.

mobius, did you try downloading all the other stuff that is needed and linked to at the download page? (like the .net framework and that odd driver)

 

I use CCEdit 2.0 largely because it is the most recently updated one. I would probably use CC Design if there were a few more features implemented. If Icy001 is contacted and willing to take a look at some suggestions, that would be great!

Whenever I try to use CCDesign, the program completely crashes and doesn't respond to me at all. I use CCEdit 2.0 because of this.

I actually prefer CC Edit on this aspect. Sometimes i just want to browse through the levels in a set, and i don't want to open dozens of tabs to do that.

I did download the .net I'm reluctant to download any drivers, my computer is easily messed up with that sort of thing. It worked before anyway, and I'm 100% I didn't just download any new drivers or delete old ones or anything like that, it's really weird.

What I can say is this happened right when I stupidly tried to open a dac file instead of the proper dat file and it crashed. What I'm thinking is; CCDesign always automatically opens the last levelset you had open. Since in this case, the dac file was the last file I tried to open it tries to open it and crashes. But there ought to be a way to circumvent this sort of thing.]\

 

 

Anyway, I'm really enjoying using CCEdit2. It has a good amount of new features. And I can instantly play test my levels finally, that's a big help. CCDesign can only playtest in MS. (I have Windows 7)

I also didn't really like the many tabs feature. But I did like the lines linking teleports feature which is absent in CCEdit2 apparently.

I've had instances when I had to reorder my levels, and by doing so in CCEdit, if the level was already open or something, one would replace the other and you'd have the same level twice, losing the other one.

CC Edit 2.0 still shows which teleport is linked to the one the mouse is over, but it simply puts a red border around the other teleport, rather than drawing a line to it. I prefer the line, though. The zoom feature is also not as great in CC Edit.

 

I don't believe i've tried re-ordering levels in CC Edit. I have both editors, so i just use whichever i feel like using :P (or based on what i think i need).

CC Edit has a point that I miss though, in testing levels easily. I have to save the file in its TW folder in order to playtest, which isn't that bad, but can be annoying if I have to test repeatedly.

I have to do that same thing for Lynx so I feel you on that one.

Try temporarily removing or renaming the .dac file that you last tried to open before starting the program.

If that doesn't work, try copying in any valid .dat file, and give it the exact same name as the .dac file (extension and all).

that worked! thank you. All I needed to do was move the file temporarily. I honestly don't know why I didn't think of that. Well it doesn't matter anyway because I decided to use the new CCEdit now. But at least I know what was wrong and it works now. B)
