ok, I was able to replicate the issue that Shatari posted above.http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,2069.msg49174.html#msg49174
I moved near a battle, wrote some code to eliminate one of the parties, and my crashes a minute or two later.
So, several versions back I added two new triggers:
1) Somebody had reported a while back that there were some patrols with zero troops in them. I added a trigger that runs every hour to delete all patrol parties or independent traders that had zero members in their party. However, I didn't check if this party was currently in a battle, so I have temporarily removed this code since it might be causing some random crashes if a party in a battle gets removed. If people see any patrols or traders with zero troops then let me know and I can research further.
2) Somebody reported that patrols still spawn when planets were under siege and once a planet was taken over by a different faction the patrol ships would still be of the old faction. So I had written a trigger that every 6 hours I remove any patrols that were from a planet that is currently under siege or remove patrols that had a different faction then their home base. For now I have disabled this code and switched it so patrols won't spawn from planets that are under siege. However, we still may have an issue where after a planet is captured some of the patrols may be of the wrong faction until they are killed and respawn. I could probably add some better code in later if this is still a problem.
I have attached an updated simple_triggers.txt to this post that should be compatible with 0.9.0.x. Please backup your old simple_triggers.txt and replace it with this one and hopefully the crashes will decrease. Please provide feedback if this helps or there are still crashes, etc.
We are also wondering if the polycount of the map icon models is causing some crashes or other issues. I posted some alternative map_icons.txt files in this post below with lower/higher polycounts if people are curious to test with them.http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,1996.msg49136.html#msg49136
joshlmr was seeing a random crash and had to delete the configuration files in the C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mount&Blade\ folder. I had also seen issues with the game running really slow and had to remove these files as well to resolve it. See these posts for more information:http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,1773.msg48476.html#msg48476http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,1996.msg49148.html#msg49148http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,2069.msg49149.html#msg49149
There may still be other issues because some people have reported parties disappearing on the world map, etc.
