cannot load the map (sometimes), fighter mission
« on: December 16, 2009, 12:29:55 pm »
In svn r27489 (and several revisions before), I sometimes cannot load a shot fighter mission map. After this semi-crash, I'm in the save/load menu and if I load the save game and try to enter the mission again, the game crashes. I could also reproduce it here by hitting the "mission retry" (?) button in the save/load-menu, until the mission with the bug appears.

Rebuilding all maps didn't help.

I've also had this problem, up to r27499. About to sync and try again.

Okay, I've fixed the previous post.

I've just asked because only he'd experienced that problem before and no one of us could reproduce it. I suspected that something is wrong with his build. Now you're two.

Could you tell me a bit more about your system/ufi:ai build?
Which arch/OS you're on, if you're using the latest svn (assume, yes), if you use pk3 packages, tried map-get service maps and so on.

Okay, so:

- Arch Linux
- i686 (x86)
- Ati Radeon HD 4650 using fglrx/Catalyst 9.12
- revision 27510 (latest svn at this point)
- I'm using pk3
- I don't know what "mag-get service maps" is. I only use "svn up"
- game still crashes sometimes

if you use svn up, delete your pk3 files, they aren`t needed at all.

I've been able to reproduce it here (r27669).
- start skirmish +africa harvester
- exit
- skirmish +africa default
==> booom

It does NOT happen if you start default first then harvester. The harvester map is bigger than default, so I suspect something is not cleaned up well enough.

I also got this error on several other maps while scanning through the maps testing RMA times.

same problem, with just about all the hardware different (64 bit kubuntu, nvidia card, amd64 cpu, revision 27763, and no pk3)

the problem sticks around if you exit to the main menu and load the mission, but if you quit the game entirly and reload the saved game the misison will work. It is a very rare error, I get it around 1/30 missions.
