winetricks speechsdk to fix Falcon BMS 4.34 TTS causes hang bug

Post by sponsor61 » Sat May 02, 2020 2:44 pm

The Falcon BMS combat flight simulator has always had platinum wine compatibility - until the latest version introduced text to speech. Now after a few minutes in a campaign the spoken messages repeat a word endlessly and the BMS simulator hangs. The text output to the terminal is:
------------ begin error text output --------------

wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0000000000000951 at address 00000000048DDEC5 (thread 003e), starting debugger...

---------- end error text output ------------------

There are a couple posts to BMS forums suggesting that loading Microsoft TTS libraries solves the problem, one post references a link (https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments ... microsoft/) suggestiong these commands:

$export WINEARCH=win32
$export WINPREFIX=~/.wine32
$winetricks msxml3
$wine msiexec /i SpeechPlatformRuntime.msi
$wine msiexec /i MSSpeech_TTS_en-US_ZiraPro.msi

I tried this - no change.

Then I tried

winetricks speechsdk

on a fresh BMS install - the hang problem was still there.

Since BMS 4.34 is a 64 bit executable, with a fresh BMS install I also tried installing a 64 bit Microsoft SDK with wine:
wine msiexec /i MicrosoftSpeechPlatformSDK.msi
wine msiexec /i MSSpeech_TTS_en-US_Helen.msi
wine msiexec /i MSSpeech_TTS_en-US_ZiraPro.msi
I also included a 64 bit version of the MS xml msi because it was included in the reddit link above
wine msiexec /i msxml6_x64.msi

Also, on a fresh install I tried using the MS speech platform runtime msi rather than the SDK:
SpeechPlatformRuntime.msi

One other BMS forum post which suggests a solution is:
------------------------ text from BMS forum post ---------------------
"Using winetricks to install `msxml3`and Microsoft's SpeechPlatform(x64) and languages (Zira, Helena) it seems to not crash. I have a server flight in a campaign running for about 30 minutes now. Idea was coming from here.

I'll update my server scripts for 4.34 then.

edit: after some more tests, crashes do still happen. Looks like it's related to AI taxiing. Seems like one of the threads has a unhandled page fault on write. BMS doesn't stop but tries to wait for the thread which ofc never returns. "
--------------------------- end of text -----------------------------------
So far, none of these attempts have had any effect on the TTS hang problem.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 with wine version 5.0 on a 5 year old Intel i7 with a Nvidia Geforce GT graphics card

Hi folks,

I'm having the same issue, using WINE 5.0.15 winehq-devel build.

"Instant action" works fine, but when starting a campaign trying to RAMP the jet, the sim crashes throwing a wine dbg error.

I've tried disabling "Text to speech" in falcon bms.cfg, sadly to no avail.

Any updates on this issue? Linux Mint 19.x here.

Thanks in advance & all the best,

uwe

PS: These are the errors I'm getting in the console:

I have the same problem as hoover has reported. The same error message.

I just tried to triage this crash a bit further and I don't think it's related to TTS, but to something in the BMS AI taxiing code that WINE cannot handle (tested version 5.18 on Linux Mint 19.3, fully updated).

I've managed to create a simple TE which reliably crashes BMS at the same instant / time into the TE, you can find the details in the BMS forum thread here:

https://www.benchmarksims.org/forum/sho ... post552125

This is the moment this happens during an AI flight "training" lineup:

WINE backtrace & stdout / stderr logs:

Test TE:

https://zif.gplrank.info/hoover/bms/tes ... _crash.zip

It'd be great if we could get some support from the WINE community with this error!

Thanks in advance & all the best,

Uwe

Hi,

I'm running wine-5.18 (staging), I got similar error with SC2 and even with cmd.exe :lol:

Could you try :

Code: Select all

$ wine cmd.exe
And copy paste output please ?

I don't know why this would help with the issue at hand as this wine version runs many other programs just fine, "cmd.exe" among them...

I guess there's something wrong with or missing from your setup then.

All the best,

Uwe

Because I have same error with some applications (SC2, cmd.exe ...) and it runs perfectly other applications, trying to find a root cause, by testing, remove commits, add logs ...

Code: Select all

$launch_wine.sh cmd.exe
Microsoft Windows 10.0.17763

Z:\home\user\games>wine client error:120: partial write 4096
