Bus error: retro engine keeps crashing

Recommended Posts

I'm having one of those days with Retro8 - again



all whinging aside - absolutely nothing has changed on my host machine.


Retro ran my AM scripts - all clear


PM scripts and the engine keeps crashing: see below log

i've got a backup for 2 days of the retro app support folder: so far i have tried the following:


Stopped the engine

replaced the entire app support folder

started retro


- i get the same log error


i've tried this with 2 different app support folders from 2 days.


i've also tried:


Stop the engine. Delete the "config80.dat" and "config80.bak" files.


Take the restored "config80.bak" file -- rename it to "config80.dat".


Put this restored/renamed "config80.dat" file *ONLY* in the directory.


Start the engine.


- same error - the engine keeps crashing.


any suggestions...



(i'm working on OSX 10.6.4 server with the latest version of retro 8.1)
