why in the hell can't i windinkedit anymore? i load up a dmod, press space to render all the squares - crash. i select an individual square to zoom into it - crash. open sprites grid? CRASH. i think there's been times i can render a screen, but making or editing anything is impossible. all versions of windinkedit do this. freedinkedit doesn't though. even a skeleton nukes itself.

maybe there's something ducked with the installation. since dink is so unpredictable about when it will bug out and take a massive shit, i've probably moved my entire dink folder to the desktop, to program files and back to the desktop. some vista thing that persisted. or if it didn't persist, some of it did. the desktop seems to be the best place to put dink, otherwise the dmods install...somewhere. just somewhere.

i'll open regular dfarc and it asks to specify where dink.exe is. every time. no idea why since the two are in the same spot. back whenever, i posted a thread about the registry. it doesn't seem to be registry related now, though. i don't even know where that registry thread i make is.

i don't even know what other information i could possibly give. it's not like it writes a crash log anywhere. i think leprochaun once said to go through and comment out everything in the dink.ini file until i find what line is causing it. but it's in every dmod. not every dmod suddenly has a faulty line somewhere.

I actually don't know what your problem is. The only issue I've ever had with WDE is the fact that it will always crash when trying to load a 24bit image. Your issue is probably something weird with the installation. I'd recommend removing all your dink stuff and reinstalling. It could have something to do with you moving the dink folder since it's trying to access things it no longer has a path to.

also i can load all the default tiles. and it's not asking for dink.exe's directory anymore.

fun fact, dink stuff takes up no space at all, so feel free to download all of it you can

why it's taking forever to move shit from one part of c:/ to another? who knows. my ponies folder is huge and moved instantly. welcome to windows.

edit: uninstalled, reinstalled. still doesn't work. duck it. it's over.
