Options' "option search" crash (LiTDoom 0.581)

Postby Noname_ » Thu Sep 02, 2021 2:03 pm

This crash occurs when loading *LiTDoom's current release (as of the moment this is being written, 0.581) in GZDoom, and using the "Search option" for any character/word.

- Loaded the mod into ZDL beta, and using GZDoom 4.6.1 (Doom 2)
- Main menu, Options, Option search, Enter to write any word or character, then pressing Enter again to query the search
- Screen briefly freezes and causes a clean crash with no error message (CTD crash).

**Log text troubleshooting through the developer 3 console command did not give any particularly useful information, as it was a CTD crash.
It was later suggested to have been caused by a "Menu with endless recursion", as it was pointed out that one of the mod's (LiTDoom) custom options to select the Doom Guy class did not use the "return to previous menu" option, but instead used manual linking redirection to skip to another menu.

It has been reproduced two times: one instance reporting CTD crash, and the other being a freeze, through usage of this page's Discord server in which moderation and dev staff was involved. I've been since told, to properly archive this crash here.

I suspect a recursive menu link somewhere. There's so many menus here that I haven't found it yet.

It is. From Discord:
<phantombeta> Mod Options>Difficulty Settings>Play as the Doomguy Class
<phantombeta> "No thanks" puts you back in the difficulty settings menu by linking there instead of triggering a "return to previous menu"
<phantombeta> "Yes please I'm casul" leads to another confirmation prompt, "No, maybe I'll keep my dignity" once again leads back to the difficulty settings menu

That doesn't work particularly well, since it opens the difficulty menu as a submenu instead of closing the confirmation prompts. But the options search shouldn't be letting such an easily-fixed recursion happen, either.
