PLease could you try to replace the crashing line by :

1glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES,3*ntris,GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, &((uint16 *)0)[((uint16 *) _LastIB._Values)[firstTri]]);

#3 Updated by kervala about 8 years ago

On Apple developer site, there are examples to use glDrawElements with or without VBO :

Does not make any difference. :(

#5 Updated by kervala about 8 years ago

Please could you try adding :


just before the :

glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES,3*ntris,GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, ((uint16 *) _LastIB._Values)+firstTri);

GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER is used nowhere so I suspect it could need to be initialized somewhere.

I have a player that reported a crash upon login with a very similar dump: (strangely enough only on 1 character.

Is this the same problem that should have been fixed?

#11 Updated by rti over 7 years ago

I would say this is not related. Could you please post the whole crash report and log file in a new issue?
Where is the character which leads to the client crash?

#12 Updated by rti over 7 years ago

To be absolutely sure wether it is related to Microvegetation or not, you can add

MicroVeget = 0;

to client.cfg

#13 Updated by Sywindt over 7 years ago

Hi rti,

Thanks for your response. The player was in Void, Jungle. Player was was able to login successfully after turning off micro vegetation. So it does seem related. I will attach full log here later today.

#14 Updated by Sywindt over 7 years ago

Crash log attached. client.log has gone missing unfortunately, but didn't contain any relevant errors or exceptions (it just ended)

#15 Updated by rti over 7 years ago

This backtrace is really really fishy... I vote for stack corruption for the following reasons:

  • the bottom of the main thread's stack is not main()
  • calls to destructor ~CXDeltaPatch stack 3 times
  • a call to std::_Rb_tree< [...] <std::string const, NL3D::ITextureDrvInfos*> [...] >::_M_insert_unique() results in a call to glDrawElements_ACC_Exec
    • inserting a pointer and a std::string should really not result in calling GL functionality...
  • CXDeltaPatch code is related to patching, which is not used on Mac OS X and should really not depend on which char is selected

Anyone any idea? This looks really weird to me.. :(

#16 Updated by rti over 7 years ago

Ok, looks like I was wrong again...

I get similar backtraces with the client build from the app store.
So the backtrace should be ok like this... or at least, this should not be due to stack corruption.

Can you provide detailed information how I could reproduce this on my machine?
Exact character position, client.cfg, things like that?

#17 Updated by rti over 7 years ago

velogfx just confirmed it.

crash in "umbra, jungle" at the karavan teleport.
disabling micro vegetation fixed the crash.


#18 Updated by Sywindt over 7 years ago

Crashing location: 10155,-2302

Some observations by player:
- Client only crashes on log in/port in with microveg > 80.

- If log in with microveg = 80 and then change it to 100, there is no problem.

- Once you have crashed, you have to turn off microveg completely to be able to log in again. (So setting it to 70, normally a safe level, does not work)

- Loading screen wait times are much longer in places where there are microveg problems.

#19 Updated by rti over 7 years ago

Thanks a lot for the information! I will try to reproduce the crash at this location on my machine.

Erm.... How can I see my current location as a player?
Can i target a given location by coords with the compass :) ?

On live shards you cannot, on your own shard if you have a privileged account (dev, sgm, gm etc.) you can use /a Position 10155,-2302 to teleport to the relevant location.

Here is the location on the map: http://clip2net.com/clip/m28350/1310077824-clip-44kb.jpg
