CTD quickly after starting the game....

Starting a new game, I tried adding and removing a few systems some ruins and a few neutral colonies, to give the area a nicer look.
Not sure which of these causes the problems, but its absolutely reproduceable across multiple gamestarts. Obviously something goes wrong adding/deleting items. I'll follow up if I can narrow it down any further.


Please find a corresponding savegame attached.
Starting it, the crash happens within a minute:

-----------------------------------------

Error Code GxBO

System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Index was out of range.
Must be non-negative and less than teh size of the collection.

EDIT: Couldn't upload the savegame as it didn't compress under 8MB.
If you are interested in it, please PM me, and I'll try mail it or upload it somewhere else.

Hi Firedancer and welcome to the forum. On what Vanilla or ROTS version are you?
Also, for easier save game uploads you can use the Matrix's ftp server -> http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2415085

thanks for the welcome ;)

I'm running the game with the "Return of the Shakturi" expansion.
my current version is 1.5.0.0 - latest i could get with check for updates function.

Also I just uploaded the savegame to beta.matrixgames.com,
Filename: Firedancer-110820-SaveBeforeCTD.dwg

Not sure if it helps, but just in case you want to compare, I've added the file "Firedancer-110820-GoodGameBeforeChanges.dwg" which was a save immediately after the galaxy was created, prior to the changes.

The important thing is to check if this reproduces. Since most of us are on 1.5.0.8 can you also download this patch and upgrade? It's important to determine if this occurs on the latest patchlevel as well; it also has many other bug fixes and goodies

ok, patched.

This will take a bit now... naturally the broken savegame still crashes, but I'll try if I can reproduce it with a new game as well.

Ok, I can confirm that the save game leads to a crash for me as well. Considering that some of us used the editor and never encountered this (iirc) I'm inclined to believe that this could be a corrupted save. Has this reproduced in a new game?

1.5.0.8 does the job...

When doing changes in the editor, I always got corrupted saves in 1.5.0.0, but since updating to 1.5.0.8 I can't seem to crash to desktop anymore - not that I'm complaining :) Weird that I hadn't noticed this version had already been released (sorry!)
Anyway, seems the patch also prevents this error from happening. Thanks for the support.

Glad to hear you're ok. Indeed, even if 1.5.0.8 "solved" it we should know what triggered it on the older version; but Elliot has tons of other stuff atm and since it's not reproducing on 1.5.0.8 I think this will have low priority.
Have fun making those interesting maps
