I've been looking into these crashes once they've started occurring, I have worries it might be with one of the newer files being hosted but after attempts to fix it within that file and no other leads, I'm not quite sure where it can be from now. The crash has occurred frequently between TLMS countdown and round start, but I've also seen instances where someone will die then the crash will occur. I've attached the call stack I got for running the minidump file in one of my crash reports. A check in Mendez's crash report shows basically exact same results.

Here's my crash report and demo of another TLMS round start instance. [^]

Going forward we're gonna test without the pk3 with potential issues, creating a wad lineup that functioned with no crashes in 3.0, to see if crashes still occur in the same vein. I'll be sure to update if they do occur.

Update, full day of playing without the wad mentioned in my last note and no crashes have occurred, when previously at least 10 would've. So I think we can say that this file is at fault, but I'm not sure what specifically within it would be the cause. [^]

Here's some other demos showcasing the same crash type, [^] [^]

here are the tics where each provided demo ends, using demo_ticsplayed





ive tried using logfile with developer 1 and cl_showwarnings 1 but have found nothing of use

the only consistency ive noticed is that the demo ends after a player dies and seemingly finishes their death state to either become a dead spectator, or is allowed to respawn if during the tlms countdown phase

Attempted to do an update to the crashing file to polish up some of the code that could've been causing issues or strain, and while it appears to have reduced the crashing overall, it does still happen. Crash report is the same still and the demo shows pretty much the same circumstance as prior.

This appears to have been resolved in the latest version of the offending file, [^]

The major change in this version from the last was the removal of a GiveInventory call in an ENTER script. I'll give an update if it somehow turns out the crashing is occurring still.

I'll go ahead and close this now since the crash is file-related, which seems to have been resolved in a recent update. If the crashes happen again, feel free to re-open this ticket.
