Some bug-greetings from the haunted past

I have no idea what happened. But this error window seems reeeeeeally old (some breakpoint in Delphi code?). And vvvv just closed when clicking ok. Oh, and it’s the current beta.

oh and what did you do just before that happened?
you know the game. we need a simple demo-patch that reproduces this problem in order to be able to check it.

Sorry, like I said, I have no idea - was patching as usual (on the same project for the last several weeks), it never happened. When that happened, I found the error message funny. But it happened again, so it’s not so funny anymore… I will try to see whether I can see a pattern when/if it happens again.

Waaah, just to add to that, another interesting issue.

vvvv looks just like pd! (and I will restart the computer now.)

fake! photoshop!

This occured to me a while ago, too. Vvvv just had black boarders like in the picture on all nodes.

I guess it is a very rare encounter, as I realy only saw it once without any specific reason.

Maybe you can say it is an easteregg.

First error happened again (“Haltepunkt im Quellprogramm wurde ein Haltepunkt erreicht”).
vvvv interestingly still runs, but not everything is working.
Seems it’s Out Of Memory-related.

Don’t know if this is the reason or a side effect, but TTY throws

all the time (as I said, vvvv is still running - as soon as I click OK on the error, it closes).

May have isolated the/an offender. It’s really HTTPGet, which simply seems to have a memory leak.

BUT, when I posted the first screenshot, I had no HTTPGet in my patch that I know of. So not the full reason.

Devvvvs, sorry to say that, but you created quite some showstopper bugs with the Raw datatype (I know at least of Writer and now HTTPGet). (I haven’t tested whether that happened in earlier versions, I’m just blaiming raw here :D)

HTTPGetBug.v4p (13.6 kB)

do we already have a forum thread for the raw-writer-problem you propose?

I guess he’s addressing the bug you already resolved here:
https://discourse.vvvv.org/t/9962

indeed there was a memory leak in the http nodes in conjunction with new datatype raw. thx for the patch to reproduce. should be fixed in next alpha.

no idea about your initial issue though. did a grep search in our codebase and couldn’t find such a line which would cause this… maybe a third party dll we’re using?

@joreg, readme: jep.
@Elias: thanks!

We just had a client report this very same “Im Quellprogramm wurde ein Haltepunkt erreicht”.
There’s no HTTPGet, but lots of HTML Textures …
Speaking of memory related, it’s a patched 32bit version of vvvv (b30), but a Screen Setup of 3+1 (3 in Nvidia Surround, 1 extra).
Will try to gather some more information.
