VASSAL crashes when trying to load ASL boards

Postby novah1 » February 23rd, 2012, 6:50 pm

I encounter an error every time i try to set the boards directory to where my ASL boards are actually located.

I've tried running vassal from a flash drive and on the computer (it has java installed)

Here's the log it said to post.

It wont load any boards so i can't play :(

Thoughts?

Re: VASSAL crashes when trying to load ASL boards

Postby novah1 » February 23rd, 2012, 7:05 pm

To reproduce the error: I launch Vassal, and load VASL. I can hit load game or new game, and i have to select a board. the board list is empty, and i try to change the board directory to where the boards actually are. Upon hitting OK i get the error and the buttons break and nothing works.

This is likely to be a bug in VASL, though it might be one that Java 6
does not trigger.

What are the names of the GIFs in your boards directory?

Just a stab in the dark, but if you change 'bdMC1 Snow' to 'bdMC1_Snow' and 'bdMC2 Snow' to 'bdMC2_Snow'...?

Re: VASSAL crashes when trying to load ASL boards

Postby novah1 » February 23rd, 2012, 9:53 pm

That did not work, but here is what I did to create a temp fix:

Setting the folder to where the actual boards are makes it break.

The folder hierarchy goes like this:

Boards\Board&Overlays\boards\ all the boards are in here

Right now its pointed to just Boards\

I copied the few maps I intend to play first, y and z (I'm new to ASL) to the Boards\ Folder, and it works fine. meaning: something among all the other boards is making it mad. thoughts?

could it be the ampersand in the folder name? Hmm.

I need a complete list in order to see what's causing the problem.

The reason I need a complete list is to confirm my suspicion that you're
getting this exception because the Comparator being used to sort board
names is intransitive. (That is, I *know* the Comparator is
intransitive---you can verify that by looking at the code and noticing
that according to it, "9" < "10" < "10x" < "9". What I want to check is
that you have a set of map names which have such a cycle.)

VASSAL crashes when trying to load ASL boards

Postby uckelman » February 27th, 2012, 8:50 pm

Thus spake novah1:

Yes, specifically the problem is that the Comparator used for sorting
the map list has compare("01", "1") == 0, but !"01".equals("1"), which
violates the contract for Comparator. (I.e., Comparator must induce a
strict order to be correct.)

This is in addition to the intransitivity problem I mentioned above.
The Comparator in ASLBoardPicker needs to be rewritten.

Your options are either:

1) Don't use Java 7. (This doesn't make the Comparator correct, it only
means that it won't throw an exception.)

2) Remove boards from the list such that no two distinct boards have the
same sort value.

3) Get the VASL devs to fix the bug for the next release.

I've reported this as Bug 4312:

Re: VASSAL crashes when trying to load ASL boards

Postby lancel » March 6th, 2012, 2:58 am

If the crash is due to the mix-up of bd01 and bd1, then the best solution is for novah1 to put version 4's boards in a folder separate from version 5's boards. Whereas boards 1 to boards 9 of both versions can co-exist in the same folder, I don't think the same can be said about boards 10 and above. What navah1 has in his current boards folder are most likely all version 5's boards with the exception of board 1 to board 9, which were not overwritten by the system during copying of the files because their names are not the same.

I tried Java 7 on my Win7 64-bit and Ubuntu 32-bit with my version 4 boards and have no problem loading them up. I even put a version 5's board 1 into the version 4 boards' folder on my Win7 64-bit and I still got nothing.
