[seemingly] Random MAV?

[backstory]
Jay's B&W entry a couple of weaks ago got me thinking about that mouse-string code i posted a while ago, so i started tweaking it a bit. Upon Jay's suggestion, i have added actual 'body' segments instead of a simple line, creating a sort of caterpillar. Anyhow, i had a quick attempt at rotating the images (im planning on adding legs) but i keep randomly getting a MAV on the RotateImage line. Can anyone have a go at explaining the problem to me, it seems totally random, just leave the thing sitting in the middle of the screen for a while and 'ding!' MAV!.

You should try outputting the values you're feeding into the RotateImage command, before you execute it, plus the size of the image. You can send it either to file or debuglog. Then the last value will be what caused the error, or proof that there is something wrong with the command.

The line "gfxTemp=CopyImage(body_part)" creates a copy of the image..
The line "" doesn't get rid of it again..
Just keeps copying and copying, and using more and more memory!

"FreeImage gfxTemp" at the bottom of the clump would free things up.

But, a better way to do it would be to pre-rotate (say) 64 rotations, and just use those instead of constantly re-rotating them..

Spinal, both of your programs on this thread seem to be working OK on my computer.

BTW... That looks fun, what are you making Bud ?.

Porbably some sort of snake type game, might end up being nothing, like a lot of my ideas.

Well, given what Jay said, maybe your computer has enough memory not to run out of space... or you just didn't run it for long enough to run out of memory...

Hmmm, good point. Well spotted Shroom .

I had it running for about 2 minutes, and I have 512 MB RAM. I take it that 2 minutes is not long enough.

Mildly related to the above...

File -- why does this jitter so much?

Completely offtopic, but... this is why I'm glad I'm doing a large project right now.
Obviously I've attempted large projects in the past, but the neat thing about the project I'm doing now is that it already comes with tons of data to work with, so I don't have to make that myself or define the format of it.
And since there's sooo much data, and so many formats, there's always something to do, meaning that if I get tired of doing something I can do something else and still work on the project!
For instance, a little over a week ago I had managed to get 3D-rendering working within the client, but somehow it borked the CAS screen so that now nothing can be selected whilst a head is rendering. After spending a day looking through the Lua-scripts and fixing some unrelated bugs in the process, I got tired of bug-hunting and decided it was time to start writing the patch-client.
I spent a couple of days figuring out how to skin a .NET application without using WPF (... XAML >_<), and yesterday I tried loading the animation format. It didn't work out too well, so I scrapped my code and wrote code for loading HAGs (HAndGroup) instead. Now hands and heads can be rendered inside TSO MeshViewer. As I write this I'm in the process of extending TSO MeshViewer's interface so that multiple appearances that are linked to by HAGs and POs (Purchasable Objects) can be viewed when a file is selected.
</offtopic>

Edit: And yesterday I couldn't sleep, so I laid in my bed going through the code given to me by a developer that shall remain nameless, figuring out which functions needed to be ported in order to display bodymeshes.

Forget the jittering, reuploaded...

using a map now. However my scroll speed is all wrong, I'm a little out of practice, but from what I can tell, it should be right
