    Unhappy GameZone Not Opening

    I just tried to open GameZone tonight and it just goes back to the main menu. It doesn't even get into the list of systems and ROMs so it doesn't appear to be similar to an earlier thread I saw here.

    Recently I updated my MoveWiz plugin and updated all the WizTools DLL files. Could this be causing my problem? I tried reinstalling GameZone from 2.4 and patching up to 2.9.6 (even renamed the database as suggested in the earlier thread) but it didn't work.

    I attached my regular logs and if need be I can setup the insane logging.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Looks like this is the problem:
    Code:
    2009-01-31 19:14:23.068 VERBOSE [1] Key pressed: Return
    2009-01-31 19:14:23.083 VERBOSE [1] Unexpected error get image from callback (@image): System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'System.String' to type 'GetImageCallback'.

    With a stack trace of:

    Does this occur with the Blue skin also?

    I can provide you with earlier versions of the WizDLLs if you think that may be the problem, but I don't think it is.

    ViperDragon,

    Can you go to the General tab and enable the "Insane Debug Logs" option within the config app for GameZone. Then run up PVRx2 and try again sending me the resulting PVRX2.exe.log file.

    Thanks

    Here are the logs with Insane turned on...

    I have thought about wiping all GameZone out, but I don't want to have to reset all the settings again. Is there a way to delete all traces of GameZone but retain the settings and ROM directories?

    Thanks again!

    Thanks. I was trying to think about recent updates to GBPVR and that was one of the things that came to mind. Let's see if the "insane" logging provides any clues (fingers crossed).

    Not sure where this reference is from, but I think it is what is causing your problem...

    Code:
    2009-02-01 22:11:08.427 VERBOSE [1] GameZone: Displaying file C:\Program Files\Devnz\GBPVR\.\skin2\Community3gamezone\GameZone.jpg/.png
    I believe the '/.png' on the end of it causes the

    2009-02-01 22:11:08.536 VERBOSE [1] System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path.

    exception.

    Hi,
    It looks like something to do with the community3 skin.xml for GameZone.
    Did you roll it yourself? I would try with Blue skin and send insane logs.

    What I am seeing same line as JW pointed out but different area at fault.

    Your line, that doesn't work:
    Code:
    GameZone: Displaying file C:\Program Files\Devnz\GBPVR\.\skin2\Community3gamezone\GameZone.jpg/.png
    And here is my same line for blue skin that does work:
    Code:
    GameZone: Displaying file C:\Program Files\Devnz\GBPVR\skin2\blue\gamezone\GameZone.jpg/.png
    As you can see you have the .\ in the middle of your path, and I think thats whats causing the issue. I am suspecting the skin.xml has something to do with it. also the "Community3gamezone" just looks wrong.


    Cheers

    Wait...

    C:\Program Files\Devnz\GBPVR\.\skin2\Community3gamezone\GameZone.jpg/.png

    Looks like a slash is missing between Community3 and gamezone....
