Frequent crash

Post by ElvenProgrammer » 25 Jun 2005, 17:42

I guess after removing the ghosts bug we introduced a new one since people is experiencing frequent crashesh with this backtrace:

Code: Select all

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

well as Momotaro found,doing a lot of event at the same time crash the client.

ex:click many time no where,move ,hold control randomly,and bang it crash.

EDIT
using left mouse trigger + ctrl key crash the game,not the others one

other ppl could confirm this?

Well it crashed the game in 1/4 tests, the first test was without gdb so I can't give a backtrace, and I also can't reproduce it anymore.

I use the last CVS Version wit OpenGL on Debian

I fixed the specific crash Elven Programmer mentions, where the problem was attack() being called with any of 8 directions since recently while it was assuming only to be called with 4 directions.

I've just made sure the pointer is initialized to NULL now, but we should also either make sure to only call the function with 4 directions or fix the function to handle 8. Personally I think we shouldn't do diagonal attacking, as with 4 sprite directions were are unable to show it anyway.

At least at this point we have 4 directions, but who knows what the final solution will be. We should plan ahead more.. :)

I guess we will never see the finish line if we choose 8 directions, it will take a month only for a new equipment.

I'm not in a hurry.. :roll:

But we should at least see how it all behaves under four directions first before going diagonal.
