RFB intro bug crash fix- caused by MP11
Hey everyone, thought I'd let you know.
I had to install the lates patches/ codec updates from MS for Media Player 11 ( required for some of the video stuff I do ). When that happened, SH4 crashed everytime it tried to load. Screen would go black and then I'd get a SH4 crash error message.
Tried the unmodified RFB with the same reults.
Checked the error report and it was being caused by one of the media splitters. So I overwrote the 0 byte .wmv files in the intro folder included with RFB with the original intro movies, and the problem went away.
Seems the windows media 11 codec updates couldn't handle a 0 byte .wmv file.
Have been using the K-lite Megacodec pack 3.5 for several days with no problems, so I figured it wasn't the source. This error only started after patching MP11. Thanks again MS.
