Strange freezing on BigBox

We've fixed a ton of stability issues in recent betas, so yes, it's possible that it was fixed. We also have a new beta coming out today that has some additional fixes.

Hi @Jason Carr, I just updated to the latest beta and the issue is still there. I wonder have you been able to reproduce the issue on your end? I can send you my theme so you could try and see by yourself. I'm pretty sure it's an easy fix.

Unfortunately we have not been able to replicate any freezing with CTC themes. We're able to test with both the themes demo and attract mode running for days without issues. However, some of the CTC themes are rather intensive, so it makes sense that they could be pushing systems and we could be running into things that we haven't found in testing. For those of you running into crashes, please enable debug logs in LaunchBox under Tools > Options > Debugging and attach one here that caused a freeze. Also, if you can, explain what you were doing at the time when it froze. That should help us to hopefully narrow it down.

I tried my theme on 3 different computers and it doesn't work on all of them. Strangely where it works the most bad is on the best computer who have a i9-9900k and 2080ti with 32gb of ram with a M.2 drive.

Trust me that if you download my theme you'll be able to replicate the issue.

Unfortunately we can't do error_logs because it's not crashing. It's only freezing.

The error logs are still useful to us. We do still need those error logs. I haven't tested with your theme, but I can do that here shortly. Still, please replicate the issue and send us the logs.

Here's my log and I hope there's the needed information to solve the issue! It's really easy to replicate the issue, no matter what item I click or I go back the transition freeze. In this log it have froze around 4 times.

@G22 Out of curiosity does your theme utilize a UCVideo control made available via the CTC?

I'm not sure what a UCVideo is, but there's a good chance that I'm using that as I have a lot of videos in my theme.

Yeah I'm not sure what they are called inside of CTC itself, I just know the control it produces to play them. I assume they are label "User Controlled Video" or something similar inside of the editor though.

Hi, I made a log too, and recorded a video if it can help. It's COINOPS theme. It freezes on the view made with CTM when I want to switch view. But not with the default views. I wait a little on the video so you can see the freeze. To unlock, we don't see on the video, but I have to press on the window key 3 or 4 times, the start menu appears and it unlock the freeze. If I don't do that it's totally blocked, I can't do anything.

And it freezes when I come back to platform selection, but only when I am with gameviews made with CTM. If I'm with a default view, The come back on platform view doesn't freeze.

Thank you for your hard work.
