[bugs] CTD in Rikh's challenge & sound cutouts


#1

Hey all,

Nice game! I’ve had a couple of issues so far; apologies if they’ve been covered elsewhere. I’ll continue to investigate and post extra info as I come across it…

  1. Rikh’s challenge fleet: CTD (Vista’s ‘report to Microsoft’ screen) about 2 seconds into the replay. It’s something to do with line 270! I’ve tested it a few times with various fleets, including the default one.

error log:
1/8/2009 - 14::57 - Assertion failure:filename:…\src\SIM_TacticalModule.cpp,linenum:270,build:Beta 1.0
31/8/2009 - 14::59 - Assertion failure:filename:…\src\SIM_TacticalModule.cpp,linenum:270,build:Beta 1.0

31/8/2009 - 15::35 - Assertion failure:filename:…\src\SIM_TacticalModule.cpp,linenum:270,build:Beta 1.0

The other CTDs (line 212/130) were from the third Challenge on the list - Ovek’s fleet with a score of 19971. I’ve not been able to replicate this one.
My specs: Vista 32 / 8800GTX / E6700 / X-Fi Gamer / latest drivers throughout

  1. Some sound cutouts - about 1-2 seconds each - replaying Cliff’s original challenge. I’m replaying it at speed 4, and the cutouts start happening a couple of minutes in. They’re very frequent after that.

Hope this helps!

Hi, riks challenge is borked. I’ve done a fix for the game, which will be in the first update that works around this, which is why it hasn’t been removed. Basically if you hit a capital F or E when submitting a taunt, that challenge is unplayable (don’t ask!).

Good to know, thanks. And there was me thinking that Rikh had designed an unbeatable fleet!

I’ll keep an ear open for the sound glitch and let you know if I manage to narrow down the circumstances where it happens…
