Well... it crashed a couple of times when I first tried it, but now it works perfectly! The crashes were the typical closing without a message, but I haven't had a problem recently.

Awesome.

Please I need your confirmation guys (r57shell, bod, etc) that the issue is for you fixed or not, in order to release a hotfix.

Ok, so I think that I will never find the problem this way then.

I can't replicate the error, so I will need some more information about how the crash is produced.

Could you pease use the Windows Event Viewer?, read this:

"I always hear from my juniors and QA' about a particular crash being easily reproduced at client machine and not being reproduced at their machines. This is a tricky problem, as developers cannot debug the crash at client's machine. The end result is endless communication between support team and the customer or even live meetings. [...]
I observed that an application or program crash is logged in the Application Event logs and has sufficient information to get hold of the crash or problem location most of the times. The event viewer is generally located at C:\Windows\system32\eventvwr.exe"

I used CPPCheck (http://cppcheck.sourceforge.net/) and it pointed me out some places where the program could have some errors or overflows. There where only a few.

Please check THIS NEW EXE.
Btw are you checking only with Commodore 64?, maybe the stability is related to some system's emulator.
Also check where is the DefleMask folder in your OS (put it right in a root disk, C:\DefleMask\DefleMask.exe). If the filepath is larger than 256 (it should not), could bring some problems.

In case the previous one crash too, I did a selective no-text rendering.

NO-TEXT-IN-PATTERNS
NO-TEXT-IN-MAIN-MENU


I'm starting to think that some special text is not well created, so I have to detect where is it and fix it.

Yeah, I had noticed a trend with it to crash with the C64 emulator. :P
That trend is GONE, now! :D
A couple of times it froze for a few seconds and then it worked fine; a heck of a lot better than crashing. I didn't even need to use the special no-text rendering version!

And to celebrate...
SOMETHING RANDOM THAT I MADE FOREVER AGO! 8)
Because... why not?

Crashes are gone completely for me.

Concerning the c64 it's all OK on my machine. Also it runs smooth on real hardware with the Ultimate II. So the .sid files are good. :D

After Fix7 everything went fine somehow. Didn't have a single crash. Fix8 is still running good on me. But honestly I hadn't have the time to check it real indepth for some hours straight.

It crashed once... a split second after opening it. Other than that, I agree, it's MUCH more stable now. I noticed a glitch in the Game Boy emulator where the volume changes to 0 on the SQ channels but the sound is still playing- SMB is a good example.
