Descriptive Problem Summary:
Dreamseeker.exe crashed while observing a multiplayer game running with ~15 players. No keyboard input made on crashing client. No obvious triggers on screen. Crash was limited to just my client, no other clients affected at time of crash.
Upon relaunching DreamSeeker by reconnecting to the game, the game was permanently frozen on the first rendered frame and did not recover.
Textbox and UI still functional, but game window was nonresponsive to all mouse input, did not update frames and did not show object names upon hovering.
Windows event log yields the following relevant information (my system language isn't English, I've provided approximate translations):
Failed application name: dreamseeker.exe, version 5.0.512.1421, timestamp 0x5ad11567
Failed module name: byondcore.dll, version 5.0.512.1421, timestamp 0x5ad114f4
Exception code: 0xc0000005 (access violation)
Failure offset: 0x00066c40
Failed PID: 0x620
Failed application starttime: 0x01d3d97b64c0e020
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
The problem has been known to occur (personally verified) on 511.1385, 510.1347, and most likely previous versions. I have no idea when it started, though. People from my community say that it's been going on for god-knows how long.
I'm sorry I can't provide much more than this. I tried debugging what I could in VS17, but such an effort is fruitless without source code. If there is any other information I can provide, please let me know.
