Two Node-webkit problems still on v.168 [Temp Freeze fix!]

  • So far 0.8.6 also seems to be working here. Yesterday I tried 0.9.2 but that one did freeze for me. Am I reading it right on the node-webkit page that there are two different versions now that they maintain? 0.8.6 is 2 weeks ago so thats pretty recent.

    Is this related to this problem? https:// groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/node-webkit/2OJ1cEMPLlA/09BvpTagSA0J

    Yesterday I posted this link here to the node-webkit github, sadly the issue is closed, it also mentions a freezing problem.

    https:// github.com/rogerwang/node-webkit/issues/1363

    So probably they know about those freezes, and they decided to work on 0.8.x. My guess.

    No. Post is about upload button that is not working.

  • scaffa not sure how this exactly works but there are two branches of NW v0.8.6 - Apr 18, 2014 and v0.9.2 - Feb 20, 2014 and they depends on which Node module you are using - but don't know what's the difference between these Node's

    megatronx since R164 C2 uses NW 0.9.2

    Yep... the moment I saw your post, same moment my test started to freeze! XD

    Ok, so back to 0.8.6 then.

  • hehe

    So they fu*ked up 0.9.2 then. Nice

    Maybe we could ask Ashley to develop his own native exporter? (lol, rotfl, etc. xD)

    Obviously, that would be best solution for us! I think Ashley should hire part-time another dev to help him out.

    Who knows XD. For now we're somewhat sorted as they are going to maintain 0.8 for some time. But what's gonna happen later once they drop it but the freezes will continue in the newer versions? eh, guess got to stay optimistic XD

  • I don't think regressing NW versions is a good permanent solution - we need to find out what's actually causing the issue and get it fixed.

    I wonder if John Carmack is available xD

    Could you please stop editing your post while I'm trying to replay? I had to start over cause you changed a context in your sentence xD

    There still one interesting question to answer. Why it's freezing only on export and why it's working fine on preview? C2 is using exactly same NW version to preview and export.

    I agree. Also PREVIEW WORKS so why export doesn't is beyond me!

    Maybe it has something to do with caching on hdd?

  • Node-webkit is due a new version to bring it up to date with Chrome 34. Let's wait until that's released and see if it's affected. Perhaps it's a problem with the 0.9x branch alone.

    We understand, but we also wander why on preview everything works fine?

  • Any progress on this issue? I'm getting freezes about every minute in my game in the node webkit export (sometimes it will freeze for about 10 seconds) As far as I can tell, it seems to freeze when it encounters a new sound (the issue might be related to other things as well, but i've definitely noticed freezes in those conditions.)

    i do all my testing with node webkit as my preview mode, i can confirm it doesn't happen in the preview (also strangely, webgl works fine in vista in the preview as well) curious why that should be? can the exporter be setup to export in the same way as the preview? that would solve all my problems in one go

    The preview uses webgl properly by using a workaround to a bug in node webkit where ignoring the gpu blacklist via a flag in the manifest doesn't work. If you launch a game via a shortcut with --ignore-gpu-blacklist added to the end of the target it works fine. That part you can do yourself at least.
