We're you playing in full screen? Another user said that the UI would start to lock up when going into full screen sometimes.

Yes, I was playing full screen, then suddenly the error happened and when I hit OK the emulator crashed

  • Subject changed from Stack Overflow while Playing Super Mario Sunshine to WxWidgets, stupid Stack Overflow
  • Status changed from New to Accepted

  • Operating system deleted (N/A)

Ok, I ran into the same issue.

Custom build from sometime around 4.0-7716, not running full screen. I had another app in the foreground and hadn't touched anything in a while.

Luckily, I had a debugger attached, so stack trace:

As you can see, it is completely reasonable that the stack has overflowed, it's just the same 5 functions (all inside WxWidgets) looping over and over again.

I could explain what has happened, but more or less it's all WxWidgets' fault, they are doing something incredibly stupid and fixed this bug in SVN 20 months ago, only a few hundred commits after our version of Wx in Externals.

To fix this, we should upgrade to the latest svn (or potentially 3.0.2) version of WxWidgets.

#5 Updated by JMC4789 over 5 years ago

No, I've run into it since.

#6 Updated by Fallcrest over 4 years ago

Shouldn't it be fixed now that WXWidgets was updated with [[[]]]?

#7 Updated by ZephyrSurfer over 4 years ago

This is fixed, I think.

#8 Updated by JMC4789 over 4 years ago

It can still happen if you have logging enabled.

#9 Updated by PEmu over 4 years ago

Is this still an issue?

#10 Updated by 8times9 over 2 years ago

I believe this can be closed because Wx has been removed.
