g3.7pre-9-g4ac43dac3 Crash on startup

Post by Enjay »

I've had a few crashes today (3 or 4). It has happened with Doom2, Doom and FreeDoom. However, it seems quite random and most of the time it has been working just fine.

On every occasion, the Doom Tournament mod was loaded but I don't know if that's significant or not because every time I've played today I've had that mod loaded.

The attached file is a crash report from when I had Doom Tournament and Pompous Seed's edit of Nashgore loaded into FreeDoom. I loaded the files (with ZDL), started a game from the menu, heard the music starting and then the game crashed before I saw the level starting. I restarted immediately, with exactly the same things loaded and it worked fine.

Is this self-compiled? Please attach a debugger - I cannot seem to reproduce the crash itself, but I want to be sure it's not related to a change I pushed today to fix another, somewhat unrelated bug.

According to the title it's the latest devbuild from Oct 17 so it's not related.

Oh - I compared my own .exe version with the one in the header and it matched. I forgot that I normally don't recompile after I push a commit (because I already tested it beforehand, so I don't need to) - so it would do that. My bad.

Yup, as drfrag says, it's the one from Oct 17 from DRD. The crash has been rare, so it will be hard to reproduce I'm afraid. I've loaded GZDoom many times today and it's only crashed 3 or 4 times but that's 3 or 4 times more than normal so I figure something is up.

Got another one. I'd already started GZDoom 5 or 6 times today already but, for what ever reason, this time it failed. It's been OK since.

default PK3s loaded, Doom Tournament loaded,
IWAD Plutonia.wad

FWIW there's an assertion failure while the engine is loading with the vintage build.
Assertion failed! File: s_sound.cpp, Line 2740
(paramnum) < numparam
However i've run the mod 20 times in a row (RelWithDebInfo with Plutonia starting a game) and i haven't managed to reproduce the crash.
Edit: i forgot to load lights. Actually not, they're autoloaded.

Well, that assertion failure is easy to fix. The crash is a different story.
