DR Latest Build 1.9 Crashing


Recommended Posts

I downloaded it today to upgrade. Installed over the previous version. Working on my level, selecting a floor, walls, cornices, skirting boards, doors/doorways, copying, and

begin to move into a new position and DR just shuts down. No crash, no error message, it just instantly closes. Very frustrating trying

to build something when it keeps shutting down on me.

Sorry, forgot I posted this here, and PM'd you about it. 

No, there's absolutely nothing. It just shuts down without any warning whatsoever. No error messanges, no stopped working. Just POOF and it's gone! Is
there a debug log somewhere?

Sorry to hear that you lost some work, I know how that sucks.

There's the darkradiant.log in the C:\Users\Neon\AppData\Roaming\DarkRadiant folder, it will probably not show much, but I'd like to see it nonetheless.

Is this stackoverflow fix helping to get the popup back?

If you get the popup back, I'd need the crash dump to debug your problem.

I'm also getting this error when I try to load the autosave and that's why I'm losing work. I lost all the
work I did on this 3 story stairwell today. A lot of it is in the autosave but I get this bug when I try 
to load it. I found the log you mentioned, but seems it gets written over from the last close, and
there's no mention of a crash, just date and time of the last close a few minutes ago. I'm reluctant
to try to recreate it as that means recreating all the work I did today, which would be a pain since
most of it is in that autosave file. :(

Discovered something. The autosave map for the latest version is empty, so I've lost
a good 2 hours of very detailed work :( 

To be honest, I don't think 2.9.1 is ready yet. It's not reliable. Which is such a shame cause I really wanted to use that
Connect feature.

randomly crashing on me too, i think it's the autosave feature. i tried to GDB it but I can't get a back trace, in ubuntu it shows  the "this program has stopped responding" but repeated instances happened during an autosave.

I'm gonna try deselecting the autosave feature...

Oh my, this is bad. I didn't see that one coming, since I've seen DR 2.9.0 being used for hours including autosave and it never crashed here.

I need help to find the problem, so please give me more info about the things you're working on.

@Neon and 7318: is it reliably crashing for you when it's trying to autosave? I need to look into the cause and find a different way to handle that saving part, but I need to be sure it's that feature.

@7318: you might get a stacktrace when it's stuck by launching DR in gdb and hit Ctrl-C in the gdb console when it's stopping to respond.

I keep my fingers crossed, I'm facing a lot more regressions in this release than I'd have hoped. Many things have changed, but I didn't see problems coming like the messed up colour schemes.

If you look in the text file of the autosave.map it's empty and there's only 3 lines in the autosave.darkradiant file. Might

be something?
