Star Genesis has been dead for the longest time but I don't know how to solve the problem.
There seems to be some issue with the AI:

OR is it because I'm using old weapon effects?
I have no idea.
To reproduce, just start Star Genesis and play then you'll end up crashing.

It's clearly an engine bug, but triggered by something in Star Genesis.

On line 17 you can see an invalid pointer. That's the cause of the crash, but I don't know how that invalid pointer got there. It looks like a target, but how did the target get destroyed without cleaning up the pointer?

Does Star Genesis override any weapons? Does it manipulate ships/objects somehow?

Best guesses right now are:
ships attempting to dock to destroyed wrecks or attack destroyed objects
use of old particle weapon effect (a similar effect for the super old radiation also caused crashes last time IIRC)

Code: Select all

<Weapon
				type=				"missile"
				
				damage=				"ion:1d2+5; momentum1;"
				passthrough= 		"5"
				fireRate=			"10"
				missileSpeed=		"100"
				interaction=		"15"
				lifetime=			"40"
				powerUse=			"100"
				fireEffect=			"&efMediumCannonFlash;"
				sound=				"&snRecoillessCannon;"
				>
			<Configuration aimTolerance="10">
				<Shot angle="3d5-9"/>
			</Configuration>
			<Effect>
				<Bolt
					length=				"12"
					width=				"2"
					primaryColor=	"0xff, 0xff, 0x80"
					secondaryColor=	"0xff, 0xff, 0x80"
					/>
			</Effect>
		</Weapon>

WOW ...I just ran it in 1.5 ( it's just after 5am :) : since I have long lost many of the the other versions to crashes and the Version History section of the Wiki leads to "transcendence.kronosaur.com page can’t be found"
so I Still can't replace the lost stuff .

the second wave caused so much Lag it was redonkulous (made up word )

Anyway. I love what you did with the weapons & such....the Playership is Awesome.

1.7 : first wave defeated. I think it is a little much for my refurbished Dinosaur computer ( Optiplex 740 ) But it loaded "ok" and everything looked clean.

I did have this awhile ago but it did have an error in the version I tried it in : but don't remember the version & it ran just fine ( or close to it ) in the two versions I loaded it in this morning
