I just posted this message, to realise that there's this section too. So I take the liberty to post it here too (won't happen again).

Hi everyone. Just discovered Hydrogen and really enjoy it. This said, I regularly get bugged down while using it. When trying to open (load) a saved file, or export one to save it, I get this :

assertion failed!

Program: C:\Program files\hydrogen\hydrogen.exe

For information on how your program can cause an assertion failure, see the Visual C++ documentation asserts
(Please retry to debug the application-JIT must be enabled)

"Abort" and "Ignore" close Hydrogen, while with "Retry" another message comes up (saying I have to close the program ), whose detail is :

HYDROGEN caused an invalid page fault in
module HYDROGEN.EXE at 0167:006ed994.

I'd appreciate any help to understand what's going on - I'm a musician and know still very little of all this ( up to now I mainly used recording machines ).

Keep the good work all of you who are into developping this (I'm also quite new to the whole Open Source world and truly enjoy its creative spirit).

Thanks !

I guess its a bug which made it crash.

Hydrogen like other software is not bugfree. It has some quirks and bugs, especially since its still in development.

Hopefully Comix will see this post, and investigate it, and fix it for the next release.
