Bug: Client name change & Discon (1.07-RC2PR) [FIXED]

Post by Halebop » Thu Mar 23, 2006 8:59 pm

Disconnecting as either player or GM client and then attempting a reconnection without restarting BRPG will crash BRPG if you change you user name.

BRPG still crashes as at Beta 1.08

Further, joining the GM Host after restarting results in a script error on the player client although OKing the error allows you to join normally.

Spoke too soon. While the logic for disconnects seems to work at both ends, there is an unstable element as well. Can't pinpoint it but both player and GM clients can still crash.

Workaround: if a login attempt fails, quit and relaunch BRPG before attempting to reconnect. Not doing so means that your prior connection attempt is still out there looking for a home.

109a: Player seems to be able to reconnect using a different name but GM will crash if attempting the same.

Still true in RC2-PR, though this may be related to other bugs

Full Bleed,

I believe this crashing stopped ever since I reworked the login panels to not use Flash-based text fields. You might want to move this to Fixed if you can't reproduce it.
