Game crashes in instant combat mode

Post by Little_John » Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:14 pm

problem:
The game crashes whenever I meet an enimy and start to attack. This is true when combat speed is set to instant.
History:
I activated instant combat speed at 9.5 Mio exp and stayed in waterwayacave. At 15.5 Mio exp, the buggy behaviour started.
Actions:
The buggy behaviour stayed despite re-installing the game. Also copying the savegame to an old mobile, didn't help.
Everything under 0.7.5

Thanks for reporting it.
Would you happen to use one of the "Small notification" options under "Display monster loot"?
If so, what is your device's model and Android version? And does it still crash if you change the "Display loot" option to "Do not display" or one of the first two?

The crash occurs independant of the setting of Display Loot...
I'm using a Samsung A5 2017 with Android 8.0.
Same behaviour on a Wiko Jerry with Android 6.0.

OK. I don't see any matching crash reports on Google play. If you have a dialog offering to send a crash report on your device, it would be helpful.

I don't see it. How/where did you send it?

Trying to reproduce it, in vain so far.
Is it occurring with all your saves or just this one?
Would you mind sending me your save?
What are your settings for "High quality filters", "Confirm attack" and "Enable animations"?

Sorry for the never-ending questions. Bug hunting is tedious.

the option to send the report pops up automatically and there is no detailed information where it is send to, nor an option to addressthe recipiant. I attached two screenshots.
The crash occurs unfortunately with all my saves. I attached one save (.zip extension, but it isn't zipped...). Please tell me if you need all of the saves.
My settings:
Fullscreen: off
Theme: cobalt
Scaling factor: normal size
Optimized drawing: on
High quality filters: on
Confirm rest: off
Confirm attack: off
Display monster loot: do not display
Confirm overwriting savegames: always show...
Combat speed: instant
Movement method: straight
Virtual d-pad: disabled
Minimizable d-pad: off
Enable animations: on
Quickslot position: center bottom
Show quickslots when ...: off
Use localized resources: off

I really appreciate your effort hunting the root cause of my crashes :-).
As an electrical engineer, my job consists to a big deal of looking for bugs and doing de-bugging ;-).

Thank you. The good news is that I can reproduce the issue with your save. I'll try to hunt it down soon.

I'm really glad to hear that!
After exporting my save to another Samsung and a Lenovo, seing the same behaviour, I'm pretty sure that it's due to a corruption of the save. What I don't unterstand is that all my saves are affected. There is one with some 20 levels less and a location far away from the latest cave. I cannot think of any reason for a need to update all existing saves at once when saving the active one.
I'm about to gather information on the structure of the save, in order to look for a corruption. But I'm sure you'll find the problem much faster 😁.

I think we can rule out save corruption.
Don't bother analyzing the save format, it's really not meant to be read by a human.
