Editor42 crashing upon saving Fall of Berlin (1945) from FHSW?

So, I get this General Protection Fault when trying to add the "Ratte" tank to this particular map.

I know I have succeeded in doing it before, but now it simply does not work. So if anybody here knows what can be done to make Editor42 function with saving this map, feel free to post here.

Or you could simply download Editor42 and Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon and try for yourself. I extracted all RFA archives and all maps. Actually, I extracted the entire mod folder from "FHSW".

Lastly, I tried Berlin Outskirts (1945) as well. That map saves just fine I believe. So I suspect the error lies in the map Fall of Berlin itself. I can save objects with Ctrl+S alright, but same for heightmap does not work.

I think I've found the solution... I had to patch the BF1942.exe, to allow for 4 GB to be used by the operating system for the executable. It works with the Ratte in Fall of Berlin now.

I made a patch in the shape of "_001" with the "\Conquest" folder only in the map's root directory, along with ObjectsSpawns.con and ObjectSpawnTemplates.con.

Are you using Editor42-0.31  or  .41 ?  Can't recall what it was now, but .41 gave me some grief.
Went back to .31

I'm a bit late, but here's something that might help you out...

For me, ED42 always crashes when I save the map the first time I load up the program (after computer restart or not using ED42 in a while). No matter what I do, it always results in a crash upon save. The way I overcame this was, everytime I opened the program first time after a while or PC restart, I would do something unnecessary in the map, like planting an object down in a random spot, you know, something you don't care about, then save the map and let the program crash. Then I would load it back up and it would save perfectly. Try it out and see if it works...

I think an excellent but hilarious tip! ?

I had this exact same problem with lightwave many years ago, it is a workaround and it works. +1


U had/did all this down here already right?
