I like that… Lumbernauts :rofl:
This was a tough one but we made it. Curious to see what people think of the improvements.


I tried to install 1.24 in newly built windows10 machine and get following error from LyInstallerMetrics.exe.

VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found.

Thanks for letting us know. I’ve informed the dev team and they will look into this.

Hi Soeda,

This looks like it’s likely caused by not installing the Visual C++ redistributables.

You can read the documentation on this at

Your Third Party Zip File links look correct, but the link text does not. Looks like it’s from the old 1.23 files.

Good catch willihay!

The links are correct, just the texts were not updated. I’ve fixed it now.

Lyzard.exe still crashes if perforce isn’t installed.

Editer crashes with fatal error now after upgrading.

Memory dump exception information shows:

“The thread tried to read from or write to a virtual address for which it does not have the appropriate access.”

Any ideas?

Apologies you are still experiencing this with 1.24. Can you supply any information concerning your setup. If you do not want to make that info public, feel free to PM myself or Saulty with the info. I will follow up with the team.

I will follow up with the team. In this case, the previous version you are upgrading from, system specs (or a dxdiag), and any logs from Lumberyard would help!

Hi Guys, I’m new to Lumberyard and have installed v1.23 just few days ago. Is there a way to upgrade to v1.24 from previous version, or I have to completely reinstall entire Package for moving to v.1.24?

We’ve already provided information about this crash bug and we got one of your developers to reproduce the problem. That developer said they found what the problem is an are working on that. That was about a month ago and this release mentions nothing about a fix in the release notes. So I guess you guys just weren’t concerned about a crash bug in lyzard.exe for this release. That’s OK. Just please get it fixed soon because I don’t care about perforce.

Oh, because of new PC, I forgot to install them.
Thank you anyway.

yes ! thanks for those little things that makes the difference :wink:
and I hope like the Math Expression for example will increase it’s power with basic things like exponential, log, tg, cth, … .


One remark: it seems that the new OnVariableValueChanged is correct and a good thing that allows us to stay with several totally asynchronous process, but it seems to fail when used on a variable like a container. (using it’s size for example is a way to work around it …)
