solved. long story short: install latest Wine, not what comes with your distro.

thanks! - I didn't even need to add any DLLs once I set up latest version.

unfortunately it doesn't change the file name extension in the save dialog when I select the export format - OK, not a big problem, I can type that myself, I'm just wondering if anyone is experiencing the same quirk.

Btw, I've started playing a bit with Twine and SAM, and I'm having quite strange results. Depending on content (descriptions), sometimes I get random hangs, or garbage tiles in the text part (I thought it could be related to images, so I changed every image by blank placeholders). There's something I don't know about how to use Twine (I'm only using variables, links, and music, image and pause macros)

New troubles... just started working on this again and now I'm getting this inexplicable error:

Images.txt.inc:52: DIRECTIVE_ERROR: Out of section numbers. Please start a new f
ile.
Images.txt.inc:52: ERROR: Couldn't parse ".section".
LOAD_FILE_DATA: Could not open file "object.o".
The system cannot find the file specified.
Press any key to continue . . .


How in the hell can it be out of section numbers? Right now I have literally only nine images, and it's set up to make a 2MB ROM. I'm very confused; can anybody help?

EDIT: Might this be related to the fact that there are many, many calls to PLACEHOLDER.png in the scripts right now in place of where I intended art to go in the final? It only shows a single entry of PLACEHOLDER in the "Images.txt" file generated in the project's /sam/ folder, but I dunno... kinda just grasping at straws trying to figure out what's wrong.

That seems to be a WLA DX limit, maybe it has a 255 sections per file limit due to the way it stores the data.

Edit: it seems to have a 32-bit section ID so I'm not sure what is happening here. What version of WLA DX is being used?

I can't believe it took me nearly a month to answer a simple question but that's just how it is apparently. According to the program when I run it in a command prompt, it's WLA Z80 Macro Assembler v9.3.
