Arma 2 OA Beta 85015 seems to corrupt some mp save games during which load Arma crashes.

It doesn't happen for every save game but regularly. I have to restore an older save game to actually continue the mission without restarting.

The mission was started with 85015.

The dump files are attached.

The mission is co_08_hunt_col_aziz.Takistan.

Can you attach a corrupted savegame too? Maybe it helps, maybe the dump is enough - you never know...

Can you please provide the mission as well.

Updated by BlackRussian over 5 years ago

I can't provide a savegame because I have removed the defective one to continue playing and afterwards we had the crashing issue. It seems like this is the v1.0 map and the number has changed.
Maybe this issues is already fixed but I can't say for sure until I have time to play this map again.

Anyway which savegame would be appropriate? The continue* or the saveX*?

The error listed in the .rpt file is:

Error 'No entry' at 'C:\Users\user\Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\Black%20Russian\Saved\mpmissions\co_08_hunt_col_aziz.takistan\save6.ArmA2OASave/Vehicles/VisibleNear/Vehicles/Item12/magazineSlotsOpticsModes.C:\Users\user\Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\Black%20Russian\Saved\mpmissions\co_08_hunt_col_aziz.takistan\save6.ArmA2OASave/Vehicles/VisibleNear/Vehicles/Item12/magazineSlotsOpticsModes/.Item16'.
ErrorMessage: Cannot load 'C:\Users\user\Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\Black%20Russian\Saved\mpmissions\co_08_hunt_col_aziz.takistan\save6.ArmA2OASave'.

Having the save which is showing the problem would definitely help a lot. You can zip all saves you will find in the Saved folder for the mission.

Thanks for your effort.

I have played yesterday the newer mission with 12 players for some time and didn't have this issue. So it might be fixed already and had something to do with the eventhandler bug.

We are planning to replay the 8 player mission soon just to make sure.

Updated by BlackRussian over 5 years ago

We have played the 8 map for quite some time with many saves and reloads and it worked fine. So I would close the bug for now. If it happens again I will open a new bug with the appropriate save games.

It is weird that even the reporter can't change the status.

I guess, this would be "Rejected" then, since it wasn't a bug on its own. Thanks for your report.
