Sudden problems and crash

Post by Kane87 »


since today everything was fine and the game was running as it supposed to be.

Today I experienced an error and a crash when I click on the multiplayer button on the main menu.

I already made a new installation and it worked for a game. Now the same problem occurs.

Here would be the exception log:
OpenRA engine version release-20200503
Red Alert mod version release-20200503
on map f6c528c39e04c6880343ef6be5d2a43d086980fa (Desert Shellmap by Scott_NZ).

bei OpenRA.Game.LogicTick()
bei OpenRA.Game.Loop()
bei OpenRA.Game.Run()
bei OpenRA.Game.InitializeAndRun(String[] args)
bei OpenRA.WindowsLauncher.RunGame(String[] args)

Anyone got any ideas what to adjust and click to make it work again?

Thanks for your help!

i have the same problem. Game works in singleplayer/skirmish/missions but as soon as i click multiplayer it crashes.
My guess is someone has found a way to crash the game e.g. by using a invalid nickname/servername (which is queried when you click on multiplayer).
So i guess the dev's have to look into this....
