Descriptive Problem Summary:
When running Hazordhu through Steam, some users are experiencing seemingly random game crashes. I've been unable to consistently reproduce this or find a direct cause, however I was able to trigger it once on my end by deleting my BYOND cache and running the game, but have since been unable to cause it again, even by following the same steps taken before.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
The same number of crashes as when driving sober
The same number of crashes as when driving drunk
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?
In approx. 50% of new users, running the game through Steam. This does not occur when running from BYOND, and also doesn't happen at any point where I'm interacting with the Steam API, so I can confidently rule that out.
In other games?
In other user accounts?
On other computers?
When does the problem NOT occur?
Once the user has been playing the game for a lil bit (cases seem to drop off after 15-20 minutes)
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
Logging back into the game seems to resolve this, although a handful of cases have required up to 3 logins to stop the crash.
This doesn't happen with preload_rsc = 2, but due to the number of resources this is not a feasible solution
