So I tried both versions of the .dll file with the x64 version and none seem to work. On the other hand the x86 version of 4coder appears to be working with the .dll file be that the x64 or the x86 one. That is really confusing.
I guess so. It's weird though how I tried both x86 and x64 versions yesterday, extracting both from the zip directly and then running them and none of them worked but now the x86 one is working fine. Could it be a random crash perhaps ?
My previous CPU was faulty and when I was trying to figure out if it was either that or the memory I'd ran a memtest for 24 hours straight and it came out with 0 errors which was also the case for more memtests that I performed during that time. My current CPU has also gone through many stress tests from the time that I received it so that I was sure that this one wasn't faulty and it came out to be just fine. My guess would be that it is either Windows being Windows or perhaps the GPU driver.
CPU reference implementations of OpenGL also have bugs due to the standard's complexity that grew over the many decades. Only half of the behavior is even formally specified, and the rest is left to the hardware vendors' heated arguments about how it should be done. Just have to hope for an internal CPU fallback solution in 4coder, which could be an easy fix if all rendering relies on a few 2D draw calls abstracted on top of OpenGL.
I had the same problem. 4Coder kept crashing either at launch or almost immediately after. It used to work perfectly, but after getting a new GPU and updated Nvidia drivers, the problems started appearing.
It looks like switching the opengl32.dll as suggested by mmozeiko, has fixed my problems.
I have the same issue. When using the downloaded version of opengl32.dll that was suggested in this thread makes the application start without crashing for me but won't take input and never draws another screen except the first one. Maximizing or resizing the window for example leaves it black. 4.1.7 worked for me before but started failing after i updated my graphics drivers. 4.1.8 has never worked and 4.1.6 still works.
You should report the issue on github, there is probably already one, but you can relpy with your config (OS, processor, graphics card...) and then try to contact Allen Webster on twitter or discord as they don't come here often (I think).
