crash in network game

Postby mael15 » 07 Oct 2017, 15:36

hi,
unfortunately i encounter a crash in a local network game after some minutes of gameplay.
systems:
Conny: Windows 8.1 Standard with all updates (crashes here)
Martin: Windows 10 Pro with all updates
it makes no difference who is the server and the client.
hope you can fix this, we would love to play! i would be happy to add any kind of information, just ask.

ps: when trying to upload the file autosave.ccn, i get the error message "The extension ccn is not allowed." ;)

Thanks for reporting the issue.

I'll try to find a moment to investigate.

I know the game crashes when exiting the screen saver because the graphic device can't be created back (forgot to implement this).

Do you remember having your screen saver running just before the crash ?

thank you for you answer!
it is very unlikely that the screen saver has something to do with this crash, because it happens while playing.

ps: i do not get notifications for new posts for my subscriptions. maybe it is a problem with my user account? "notify me when a reply is posted" is activated in this post, in my user control panel everything seems to be set up ok. if it is a general problem, fixing it would improve dialogs in this forum a lot! ;)

Ok, i'll check if it crashes on my side.

Hosting, MySQL, PHP, emails and other services are offered for free by my ISP.
Unfortunately, there are some known issues about emails, and sometimes the database.
I agree notifications are essential on forums (i don't receive them either), but migrating to another provider is not an easy task... :(

Hi mael,

I recently released a new version of CoCoNet (1.2.1) which should handle correctly the DeviceLostException exception.

I can't reproduce it easily without triggering it manually via the microsoft graphic tool application (using the command line "dxcap -forcetdr").

If you still play it sometimes, let me know if it works for you :) .

in the title bar of the "host a game" window it sais "[Debug][Admin]", is that intentional?

Yes, i release the game with debug symbol to provide useful information if it crashes, so the "Debug".
"Admin" means you are the host and have admin rights to setup the game.

okay, so the game ran fine for 5h with 3 players in a local network. i crashed when a non host player wanted to spy on the last territory of the last remaining computer player (northern england). this is the debug out, let me know if you need game files or more info. since this forum does not send email notifications on replies, you can reach me faster via froese@gemini-sites.de
