Subject description: Always crashes the game
Reply with quote

Hi guys,

I'm playing DTA for years now but me and my friend still encounter errors while playing.

We always play the map Death Valley with 6 Extreme AI and 2 human players.
The game mostly crashes while we are in-game.
We tried LAN, Skirmish and CnCNet.
Our pc's are both i5's with 8 GB RAM.
Also both pc's hava a 1050Ti GPU.

I don't how what precisely went wrong, but here the error logs.

Thanks in advance,

LoudRex

EXCEPT_5_3_2019_21_29.TXT: Something to do with freeing memory, possibly memory that was used up by a team.

EXCEPT_14_2_2019_21_44.TXT: A crash when trying to free memory used by a building (free function called from BuildingClass destructor).

From testing we know that Extreme AI can sometimes crash the game, most likely because of programming mistakes made by Westwood. Sadly, we can only suggest trying different settings. Try playing without Extreme AI.

If the crash rate is tolerable, you can also try finishing games by making use of multiplayer saves.

Okay, but if we turn Extreme AI off, we can win the game like little kids.
Mostly, with Extreme AI on, we play one match in 2~4 hrs.
Do you have a tip to achieve the same amount of gametime but without crashing the game?

Or does the game crashes come from a lack of RAM or Virtual RAM?

Greetings!

Use default settings (no fast resource growth, 10 000 money etc.) and 6 regular Hard AIs will most likely crush you.

We often play regular 4v4s against the AI using default settings and those usually last from a bit under an hour to about 2 hours. When we win, that is; sometimes we get killed in 10 minutes. Only a few games ever have lasted 4 hours though, so that's a stretch.

No, it's a programming mistake by Westwood. Since we don't have the engine's source code, fixing crashes like this is very hard.
