1.65.1 patch is now available.

posted May 04, 2012 23:31:43 by ThomRobertson
In 1.65, there was a server crash bug associated with the new Torgoth Drones. This has been fixed.

If you want it fast, you can get the latest EXE file from here:
http://artemis.eochu.com/Artemis-fix-1-651.zip

The fix is also in the upgrade pack on the download page.

Thanks for your patience!

No mesasge, just "stopped working".
You can try it and see yourself. The crash is unavoidable and immenent, happens very fast.

Launch client, launch server, set difficulty 10, barren, single front, on client fly towards big fleets (with shields on) passing from one fleet to another on warp 4, 300% energy on warp, after passing about 3 or 5 fleets you'll crash. I never got to fly for more than 1 minute before it crahsed, 5 attempts already.

PS: It crashes not only for me but for everybody. Charlie, simpleton said this earlier in different posts. I just now wanted to check it to make sure (since i'm gathring a party for the 2 following days to play Artemis, and hoped to play the new version there).

PPS: Here is the error message of windows 7 (sorry its in russian but it should exactly match the message in english)

I found the problem!

Start Module_3_bases, select point in space, click 5 -> crash
Seems that skraan enforcers are the cause

Okay, I'm not seeing it. And this usually means I've failed to release a critical art file.

If you make sure you DO NOT look at a 3D view of the game, does the crash still happen? Set main screen to tactical and do those flybys.

Before you get in range of each fleet, use the Game Master console to examine the ships in the fleet. Perhaps you can identify the exact enemy ship type that causes the crash. Then we can look in the vesselData.xml file and double check that all the referenced art files are actually in the dat/ directory.

I'm sorry this problem is occurring, Hissatsu. I really appreciate your patience and help.

having no visual is confirmed to prevent the bug

This is indeed the Enforcer missing its two textures.

ps: I have no problem helping :) I just want (very hard) to play a stable 1.65 tomorrow morning, midday, evening and night :) So i'm... agitated :)

Excellent! Thanks so much, Thom!

And thanks to Hissatsu for tracking down the final piece of the puzzle so fast.

I copied the two Executor texture links onto the Enforcer, as Hissatsu suggested in the other thread. I haven't had any crashes so far, now, though I've only had time to run a couple games. I did run across all the different skaraan ships, including several Enforcers, with no issues.

Just to confirm: After applying the 1.65.1 patch, the game should report 1.652000, correct? I just wanted to make sure, because the new 1.65 patch filename is still Artemis_Upgrade_v1_65.exe, with a different filesize, and then the game seemed to be reporting something different.

Or could be I haven't had enough coffee this morning.

Correct, Ryan, Version 1.652 is the absolute latest with the drone crash fix and the two missing files.

not sure if this has been posted before and I don't really have time to look as I'm piloting our ship now, but jump drives are making our server crash.

Edit: I don't think it was specifically jump drives 'cause there was a lot of times jumping worked great. We were just getting a lot of random crashes through the night.
