Access Violation on fresh install

Post by Yakult »

Dear all,

I just got EE2 Gold Edition from GOG and installed the unofficial Patch 1.5. Everything went fine for about 2.5h but now I get the following crash report when attacking an enemy with missile submarines and the UFO. Is this error known and does a fix exist maybe?

Sorry if it is a double post, i'm new to this forum an could not find a related post with my search skills here.

Hi.

Unhandled crashes are "normal", especially when occurring so rarely (in the past they could happen much sooner than 2.5h of game).

However, for me it's not so normal, as the goal is to make it as stable as possible.

Looking at the crash database with "EIP:00609a50"

This crash has occurred for the first time in 2015, but was happening very rearely.

However, yesterday it seem to speed-up a lot. I suppose there's some problem in the newest update (158015).

Could you please attach a game save file of the game where it happened?

To do it, please open UP1.5 Launcher, and click on the "Documents" folder (a small button on the right of the window), then navigate to savegame_SP folder.

Added after 3 hours 52 minutes 10 seconds:
Update:

I contacted Yakult by Discord, and he was helpful providing the game save right before the crash occurred.

The crash was caused by the following change: https://ee2.eu/patch/changes/#158015
— Improved the visual explosion effect of TBMs (1.5).
I released a hotfix update to remove the new visual effect and fix this crash: https://ee2.eu/patch/changes/#158016
— Fixed a game crash (EIP: 00609a50h) that could occur after update 158015. It was related to the new visual explosion effect of TBMs, so we're removing this change now. Thanks for the report to player: "Yakult".
The crash was occurring when many TBMs were hitting at the same target.

Sorry for the inconvenience. It was a last-minute change. I tested it but not in longer games. The new effect was some "shockwave" of the missile explosion. It was found in EE2's nuclear explosion files, but was not used in nukes, probably for the same reason...
