nah, ctf_reversed still works, it has to be a reiteration of the crashing bug

either that or imageshack is being stupid (which it is in some countries now without accounts for some reason)

Learn to read. And to write, for that matter.

Please help us fix this for you and others by working with me on Launchpad (I assume it was you who wrote the Bug report there). When the map download fails and you see the message "Invalid download data", do not click OK. Instead, open the Maps folder and attach the .png file that was just downloaded to the bug report. The .png file will be deleted once you click OK.

Never having worked AT ALL with custom maps, I wonder, what were/are the problems with the system summed up?

The walkmask is stored as a text string within the map file and has to be converted to a GM sprite before it can be used for collision checking. Before, this was done by creating a surface in video memory, drawing the walkmask to that and then converting the surface to a sprite. The problem with that is that surfaces are unreliable; they can "vanish" at any time because the video memory might be needed for something else. If that happened before it was converted to a sprite, it led to the "falling through the floor" bug. There was also no check whether the surface has been created at all, and trying to access a surface that doesn't exist caused weird errors to happen down the line.

Now, the walkmask is decoded in GG2DLL and written to a temporary .png file which is then loaded as a sprite in GM. It's a lot faster because the decoding is done in C code now.
