Toribash Crashes
Q: Toribash is crashing on startup for me, how can I solve this?
A: There are three common solutions to this problem:
  • Update your graphics card drivers to the latest version.
  • If you have an ATI, Intel or SIS GPU's (Graphics Processing Unit); Alter the memory management settings.
  • Update SDL to the latest library.

To update your drivers and to find out what graphics card (GPU) you use:

To solve memory management problems (Only for ATI, Intel or SIS GPU's):

To update SDL:
Download the latest library.
Extract from it the file sdl.dll to the Toribash folder and overwrite the existing sdl.dll.
(The default installation location for Toribash is "C:/Games/Toribash-3.9/")

If you use an ASUS graphics card:
ASUS GamerOSD has been reported to cause Toribash to crash, you should disable it when running Toribash.

Q: Toribash runs for a bit and then crashes, what can I do to stop this?
A: This is normally due to out-of-date drivers, or poor memory management for ATI, Intel or SIS GPU's (Graphics Processing Unit).

Hi, Toribash crashes on startup and I don't know why. I've tried all the above solutions and they don't work. Also, I don't think my Toribash has a SDL.dll file, is it supposed to? I'm running on a Macbook Pro, it has Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and the graphics card thing is as follows:

NVIDIA GeForce 320M:

Chipset Model: NVIDIA GeForce 320M

Main Display: Yes

I don't even know what that means but yeah. This is the thing that pops up when Toribash crashes:
