Hi, all of a sudden, I am getting an assertion error from Windows 7, and my program crashes. Has anyone ever encountered this?

Assertion failed: dat != ((void *)0) && (unsigned)(x) < (unsigned)dat->w && (uns
igned)(y) < (unsigned)dat->h, file src/console_c.c, line 334

What did you change recently? I'm thinking you are trying to pass the wrong kind of data to the function and that this causes the assertion error. Otherwise, I don't know for sure without some more details (code sample that causes it, backtrace, full error message and context)

I thought I had commented all changes out, but I will keep looking for data passed. IDLE gives no error, so I am  trying to figure out where the issue occurs.

If you're on one of the later dev versions (1.5.1) you're using console_get_char at some point. Check your code for calls to that Smiley

I will check the dev version, thanks. I exited from the error differently, and got more information from IDLE. Here is the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

What the assertion means is that you are passing an x or y that is greater than the width or height of your console.   When I was debugging the python wrapper on Mac, I ran several recent 7DRLs written with it to test it.  I encountered that assert from several of them.  My conclusion was that they were written only using the release version of the library, in which case this assert is ignored and everything proceeds just fine.  When I built the library in release rather than debug, they worked fine.

For my own code, I have a wrapper function around the library calls that does that check for me and bails out if it fails, rather than calling into the library, so that I am free to run a debug library and still occasionally try to draw stuff out of bounds.  This is helpful for me since I am drawing a few objects larger than one character, so while I'm checking that they are at least partially within my viewport before I start to draw, the whole object might be partially clipped.

Journeyman, ok, that explains it. It for whatever reason does not like that I changed my screen height for the root console. I need to figure out why my offscreen console is not blitting to the portion I accounted for when I changed the screen height. As soon as I changed it back, it was working again... thanks!
