Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193087
Abort while playing haxima
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
I was in the wilderness near the Enchanter's Tower. I tried to attack a nearby
wolf pack, and the game aborted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I have not been able to reproduce the crash.
The game aborted.
The game should have continued playing.
I will attach a backtrace from the generated core file.
Created attachment 129974 [details]
Backtrace showing abort
I'll pass this upstream and let you know if I hear anything. Thanks for
including the backtrace; that will help immensely.
Upstream is working on a fix which I will backport to FC5. (An update would
most likely break your saves.)
However, to help narrow things down a bit, is there a possibility that you were
attempting to attack on a diagonal?
Sorry to be so slow replying. I was traveling. Yes, I believe I did attempt to
attack on a diagonal. Apparently that's not allowed. :-)
As for an update breaking my saves, I wouldn't worry about that. For one thing,
the game has been in Fedora Extras for such a short time that there probably
aren't a lot of people with save files yet. For another, if there is a new
version in the works with a different save file format, I prefer to move to it
sooner rather than later to get the migration pain over with. Waiting will only
increase the number of people affected.
Thanks for your help.
Yes, attacking on a diagonal in the wilderness doesn't work at present because
the combat map generator doesn't handle that case. I have added a fix that
prevents such attacks and pushed new builds; they should make it out to the
mirrors by tomorrow. If you find you still have this issue, please let me know.
