Hello everybody,
 
I've noticed same bug on our server too. Guests with 2.55 version has that crash after few seconds being in game. The silent_crash.log shows same message. I'm really interested in solving this problem because as I noticed some time ago, we still have got quite lot guest comming with 2.55 version. Here are some my discoveries about that problem:
 
Our server is running silent 0.8.1, OS - liux. After some experiments I found that this bug has nothing to do with server configuration. Also I noticed that this happens after downloading server pk3 files or silent-0.8.1.pk3. I found that using snd_restart command prevents the clients game before this crash. Also if I put server files (only mod pk3) to mod directory manually (before connecting the server and without restarting game) the crash doesn't happen. Could be a cause in some client's cvar?
 
Thanks in advance for your reply,
.Be|P!Zducha*94
 
 
PS: Is it ok to post it in so old thread or shall i open another one?

I think these are unrelated so I split the topic. I assume there is no crash info based on the previous report. Do you have a lot of custom sounds and maps on your server. There are some limitations that are more severe for 2.55 clients than 2.60 clients.

Thank you. No, there is no information about crash. Nothing in etconsole.log even nothing in silent_crash.log. I've done all those experiments, I spoke about, on my home server (just basic install => no custom sounds no maps). I've just installed silent on my home server and set the dl link to FDL we're using for our public server. Than I connected my HS and boom. That was also why I started thinking that there could be some problem in our FDL. But I've changed my mind. There cannot be anything wrong, it's just space for files with fast link, isn't it?

Have you tested with your home server setup that possible AV programs don't cause issues?

AV = Antivirus? If yes, I've never wondered it could affect my home server furthermore how it could cause my clients game crash?
 
Also I was doing some more experiments and I have to edit my previous claim, snd_restart cmd doesn't help anymore. It's weird because when I was checking this crash first time it helped before reconnecting to prevent this crash.
 
Just one more thing, is it possible that this could be connected with OpenGL? I see defaul.cfg (in mapconfigs dir) forces r_softwareGL to 0. Don't know how this cvar works (I haven't seen this in original cvar list).

It could cerainly be related to the OpenGL. Yes, I meant AntiVirus. Also, I meant if it would affect the client but I didn't want to suggest you disabling it before connecting to an unknown server. However, if the 2.60 works fine in the same computer, it doesn't seem very likely that drivers would be the cause for you. The r_softwareGL 0 just ensures that you can't emulate OpenGL but you must have a GPU capable for it and the drivers. However, very often in Windows, I assume Windows because of the 2.55 version you are using, low level failures such as drivers and hardware generate BSOD and not such a clean exit.

Well, this OpenGL isn't the cause of this crash. I've tried to force r_softwaregl to 1 and experimented with others and nothing has changed. I really have no idea what could cause this problem. After I found that crash, I tried connect some other servers with similar settings silent-0.8.1 etc... and I haven't got any crash there. I don't say it would be 100% server side problem but it's connected with our server somehow.
 
Also one more information which makes this really strange. Once before there were a disc crash and then we reinstalled the server. Before we reinstalled the server there hadn't been any problem. I'd tested it several times before.

If you make a default install on your server, without even any custom maps, does it work then?

What is your server binary? Do you have any of these: pak1.pk3, pak2.pk3 or mp_bin.pk3 inside your etmain folder of your ET server installation?

Hmm, I could try this but I need to wait until nobody is on the server and it may take some time.

No, I've removed all of those because clients with 2.55 wouldn't be able to connect. And this crash happens after a few seconds of being in game.

Just to make it clear on this case. The reason why the silent_crash.txt file is empty is because the mod file has been wiped out already. The exception handler is in that binary. I.e. the execution was not in silent mod binary when it happened. Based on the original thread this was posted, the game does not go all the way to the desktop, which indicates the engine encounters an issue it can't resolve and it has to close the game. However, even still this could be happening because of programmatic errors, less likely though, because some of the ET default utility functions have their own ways to handle bad input data. Console logs should provide enough information to recognize such cases.

One more thing. I've tried some things before my 2.55 crashes and I've found out strange thing. After downloading server packs and after entering the world, I typed cvar_restart to my console. Then my WolfET again crashed after a few seconds but the crash window wasn't empty. There were notification about missing packs. Exactly, there were information, that the pack I removed before I launched the game, is missing even though I downloaded this pack during the ingame DL. So this made me thinking. Is it possible that game doesn't load pack or doesn't load it properly although they're download from server? Could this be the case of this crash? How could I fix that from server side? The fact that if I restart game and connect the server again then this crash doesn't occur supports this my speculation.

It sounds like the issue is in 2.55 client. I doubt there are things that can be done to prevent it. Luckily, it happens only when players download the packs so on subsequent times, they don't have problems. One thing you can do is to instruct players to update their clients.

So there isn't any command to restart game which could be sent to client's console using Lua, is it right? I just know that vid_restart and snd_restart don't help in this case. Anyway, I appreciate your help, thank you.

There is no method for executing commands in the client. Only option for such a thing would be a custom menu, but that would not get executed unless the user opens the menu and clicks some button.
