Consistant Crashing in Alpha 9

Title: Crashing at a regular interval, Black screen before client close

Basically at times I cannot save the game, and this is a problem because after a certain amount of time in game, my screen goes black the the client straight up closes. This begins to be a problem later on in my games day 6-7 then continues permanently

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Load into game with save file that has no image
  2. Wait
  3. Game eventually just crashes with no errors

Expected Results: Game Crashes

Actual Results: Game Crashed

Notes: I can repetitively recreate this bug, but I dont know if the save glitch has anything to do with it, or if it does that you can recreate the save glitch

Attachments: May attach screen shots later

Versions and Mods: No mods, Stonehearth 0.1.0 (release 256) x 32 build

System Information: Running 320bit windows 7, 4GB of RAM, Intel core i3-4160 3.6GHz

firstly, welcome to the discourse :smile:

secondly, are you using the humble bundle or steam version?

ok, dont exactly know what to do here, but you could turn on the auto save feature they recently implemented.

sorry im no help here :frowning:

Yeah the crash occurs before the auto saving :confused: game doesn’t run for a whole day

Most of the devs have been gone since Alpha 9 dropped early last week (vacation, I’d guess), so when they come back next week, the’ll probably ask you to post your stonehearth.log file.

I’ve not tried the autosave feature yet, but I wouldn’t trust a savefile that has no image.

Probably you could even upload that savefile somewhere and post the link here.

I have found that it might be caused by the Auto saving, but i can’t be sure as i have experienced the crashes before the I started using the autosave feature

I will start a new world and create a save every day and jot down what i do, and when the save turns black i will upload the most recent normal save and the first “black” save

I had thought for a little bit it was a result of steam streaming, but after playing on my PC to test this I found that assumption to be false

I have found that occasionally i straight up cannot save, and that is what i think causes the auto saves to black screen
