Tested it.
The log says »ERROR: Wrong SDL_BYTESPERPIXEL, expected 4 but got 1« as expected.
But no message box appears, the program exits immediately.

By the way, the assert could be removed now, right? Since the triggering failure is now caught beforehand.

8996. By GunChleoc

Tweaked error message and removed assert.

I guess the driver is too messed up to even display the message box then. I have now made the log message identical to the dialog message and removed the assert.

It´s a perfectly normal built-in Intel graphics card (VGA compatible controller, Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display) with default drivers – no reason why it should behave like that, especially in such a random way. It always worked before…

The code looks good to me; and if the SDL is messed up, that´s a problem with the graphics driver or possibly the SDL, but not in widelands.

I should had bet for this :-D There were several problems with this graphics card in the past.

Glad it's working for you now.
