My WIP crashes when loading savegame.

Hi there.

 

I've almost finished my current WIP and wanted to test it. So I packed it and started playing. However, I have the following problem.

 

If I save in a specific location of my map, and try to reload the savegame later one, the game hangs up. This only happens in one area, in the rest of the map saving/loading works as suppossed.

 

Any idea what could be causing this?

 

EDIT: In addition, I get dozens of this error messages when saving the first time.

idSaveGame::WriteObject - WriteObject FindIndex failed

And the game even hangs up if I'am in the above mentioned area and try to quit the mission.

1.08

 

EDIT: Maybe some info. I use SEED in that specific part of the map. In addition, this is the area with the lowest performance. I usually get 30-40 FPS there (I have a rradeon HD5770). Don't know if this could be an indicator of what is wrong.

 

The savegame is still listed in the load/save menu after restarting TDM and the screenshot is correct, but I can't load it. This never happens before, neither under windows nor under linux.

The only 1.08 savegame crash on record is one I fixed for 2.0, involving armed mines. Do you have any in that room?

 

If not, the only suggestions I can make are:

 

1 - remove the SEED entities one by one and see if the crash goes away.

 

2 - segment the map into sections and see which section is causing the issue (Can you successfully save and load the game in another room, away from the SEED?)

 

3 - try 2.0

 

4 - if all else fails, upload the WIP and let me try to figure out what's going on.

Deleting the SEED solved the problem :unsure:

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
