This is Rafal's PM response. Publish it so that others can understand too.
Today I will check it and let you know.

I do few tests:
1. I have 0 problems. I can modify->save->f5 many times without error, but ONLY if i run BAM/FP from C:\Games\Future Pinball\

2. If i run BAM/FP from C:\Program Files (x86)\Future Pinball, it will crash when i start game on load screen.

3. I run FP without BAM from C:\Program Files (x86)\, and again i crash on load screen.

4. I run FP with BAM from C:\Program Files (x86)\ but i run it with admin rights (context menu on FPLoader.exe and select Run As Admin)... and all works fine. I can play same table, modify, save, repeat it many times.... no error.

5. I copied Future Pinball dir from C:\Program Files (x86) to C:\tmp-test. Now i run FPLoader.exe as normal user. All works fine.

Please note, that when you run BAM-Setup.exe, it is running with admin rights (same as FPLoader in point 4). If you at end of installation alow to run BAM, when FPLoader.exe will be run as admin (like in point 4). Now, when you exit FP and run FPLoader.exe or double click BAM shortcut from desktop, it will run as normal user.

Please, please copy whole "Future Pinball" dir to normal, created by you dir on disk (like C:\testing-bam\) and repeat test.

If it still crash, please send me BAM-crash.log

ok, this is my last comment here, in this thread, as it is better to discuss about the new installation, in the fp thread 2.0.

ok I will be very, very short.
I have taken into account all the various points of Rafal, to try to understand the problem of the crash.
my opinion..perhaps a future revision, could help better understand, for those who are installing for the first time, could get confused, and give up installing.
I installed the new fixed bam..this

and I did all the possible tests, installed in a new directory,I did not understand the 4 cases of rav, but I did, as usual, my way of creating tables, the link of fploader in the desktop, even as an administrator, I did it from before this.and all the cucuzzaro!

then I installed only bam, in my directory of all time programm x86...I've done my usual job, as always, and you know what happens...


now I would like the number of people on this site, the members, to start using Bam.

and thanks to Rafal, for this gem.

I think we all will Wild, start to use BAM as well. having this one setup from now on, and it now appears stable, solves just too many problems for us now.

Neither this thread nor the FP 2.0 one are offensive, they are triumphant
