Some skins could cause a crash when reconnecting.
BYOND Version:494.1126
Operating System:Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Web Browser:Firefox 12.0
Applies to:Dream Seeker
Status: Resolved (494)

This issue has been resolved.
Descriptive Problem Summary:
Dream Seeker occasionally crashes when issuing a client->reconnect command. The only game I've noticed it on so far is Hiro's Letter Box, a server can be found at byond://audeuro.com:9998. Simply connecting to the server then reconnecting at the menu should be sufficient.

This has happened on my server running the latest 494 Linux build as well as Hiro's server running the 494 Windows build.

I doubt any of this is relevant to the actual problem, but here's a server log:

Expected Results:
Reconnect happens

Actual Results:
DS crashes

Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Yes.
In other games? Not yet.
In other user accounts? Probably.
On other computers? Yup.


When does the problem NOT occur?
In most other games that I've seen.

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.)
Not that I'm aware of, although Deathguard's < 494 client also crashed.

Workarounds:
Full re-connect.
I can confirm this and that this also happens when running the game from Dream Seeker.
Lummox JR resolved issue with message:

This will be fixed in build 494.1128.
