Not a crash on startup but check OK.

Crash first appear with the first version of ACE and so on.
It seem to happened after the same amount of game time, even if i take an old save and keep playing until i reach it, i get the CTD.

From the log file only the end seem relevant.

The xpcall is usually mod related and can sometimes be fixed by just closing and opening. The others were remnants of an older version of ACE installed. The Archipelago mod has also been updated to prevent some of these errors. I will test out the save to see what’s up

Thanks Nikia,
Hope you can find something relevant.

All fixed. The issues were caused by an outdated version of ace (Please update from the workshop by subscribing to it), you were out of inventory space ( I sold a few things to give you room ), and an ogre group spawn off map. Everything is fixed, you just need to update ACE. When you load this file, choose the GREEN button that says “Apply Mods”.

Are you on the official version of Stonehearth or are you on the [latest] (beta) version?

I’m on the steam latest beta branch.

Ok, in your Stonehearth file, can you please delete user_setting.json and launch stonehearth? It will create a new file. After that, can you please launch your save. You will need to pause the game the second you load in, teleport any idle hearthling you see in the town citizens window (by going to their character info window, and clicking the teleport icon in the upper right). After that, make sure you split your patrolling parties (knights/clerics/footmen/bowmen) into 2 groups (you can click the group flag color and then click the button with the 3 faces on it to add or remove hearthlings from each).

The save I sent you was run for a full day/night cycle and only this latest one, you’ve just uploaded, am I experiencing crashing with. I am crashing the moment the hearthlings start looking for food and a few are out of range.

Even after fixing, this error is happening (so I would redownload the upload I sent you, not the latest one you just uploaded):

I’ll try deleting the user_settings.json

Do you think it’s because i’m too low on food and hearthling are too far from it to be able to eat ?

There are also a few stuck hearthlings too, that are just standing in place. There should be 4 that you have to teleport to the surface or to an open space. Your food storage is too far from where they sit and eat at. The one hearthling (511238 Eyla Oppen) is attempting to get food and sit down, but her way to get to the seating is too far (when I tp her closer, I can atleast get her to finish eating before the game crashes)

Thanks for the help @Nikia, but this save is unrecoverable.
It keep crashing at approximatly the same moment in game.
I’ve move to another Save without ACE for the moment.


Late game consistently crashing to desktop for unknown reasons with ACE enabled.

Didn’t find a crash dump

Versions and Mods:

ACE mod, both mod & main game versions managed by steam

Not crashing on start


[Any additional useful information]

You should be able to upload files now.


I encountered late game crashes with no dumps when trying to save my game. If this is the case, I have found 90% of the time an item is bugged, and selling it triggers a crash upon saving. I rapid fire save & load emptying my inventory of non-essentials until landing on the item that causes the crashes. With a bit of repetition you can manage to sell or delete the item and save, giving you a checkpoint of sorts to continue past the bug. From there you shouldn’t encounter any more problems.

This is all assuming you had the same type of crashes, but perhaps troubleshooting your inventory is necessary.

This isn’t occurring during a save @Omni

With some experimentation however, it might be a gearbox getting picked up / moved that’s breaking things. Will keep playing for a bit but I destroyed the block instead & it hasn’t crashed yet.

NVM, crashed regardless, that’s not it

Yeah, no idea, curious if the logs tell us anything

Seems like an animation issue got you in a really bad loop before you crash; could you provide the save file? Would help a lot :smiley:
