Beta 1.16: Crash when editing ship from deployment screen


#1

When I try to edit an existing ship design from the deployment screen (right-click ship and click ‘edit’), the game always crashes with this error:

Failed attempting to write file: [_temp_deployment]:..\src\GUI_DeploymentControls.cpp 460

However, When I click ‘New Ship’ and load my ship from there, I get no error, but that is less convenient…


#2

The game doesn’t seem to mind if you’re running the game as an admin; try that.


#3

Running as admin works. Thank you.


#4

Is that definitely in 1.16? I thought it was fixed with that build?


#5

Yes, the main screen says Beta 1.16.


#6

According to the patch notes, only the crash when creating a new ship was fixed; not the crash when editing an old one.


#7

Can confirm this also happens to me (running as admin)


#8

AFAIK this is fixed completely in 1.17


#9

Sorry to rain on your parade, but it’s not. The problem is with GUI_DeploymentControls.cpp 441 instead of .cpp 460 like it used to be, but the game still crashes in otherwise exactly the same way.


#10

I’ve changed the way this stuff works, and it should definitely be ok in 1.18…
