The first posibility is that your data got copied incorrectly off the CDs. You might want to verify that the problem still exists even after making a fresh copy. It wouldn't be the first time a bug turned out to be bad data.

Presuming that this isn't the case, it's possible that the German version has data that exposes a bug in the graphics renderer - the original had the renderers implemented in assembly, and additionally had different versions for when the image was clipped and/or horizontally flipped. As part of the development process, I merged the variations into a single C routine for each graphics renderer, rather than having variations of each. As such, it's possible that the renderer code has a bug that only exhibits itself for certain data.

Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the German version to do any tests on, so I'll have to leave this as an open bug.. hopefully someone else with the German version can look into it further. The two main renderers in Tinsel 2 are t2WrtNonZero and PackedWrtNonZero.

for now - and I think for ever :) - you can close this bug report... After comparing my files and so on, I decided to download a current SVN Build, and not to use my VS2008 compilation. (straight of the trunk, no changes made)

The error is GONE, whatever you did (if someone did something)

Thanks...seems like I'm doing something wrong when compiling from the source
