Summary0000035: Military schedule screen crashes when copy-pasting orders
DescriptionAttempting to Copy orders from a month with less orders than the one you are trying to paste to automatically crashes the game.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open the military screen.
2. Go to the schedule screen.
3. Set at least one order for month "x"
4. Copy a month with no orders set or with less orders set than "x"
5. Paste over month x.
Additional InformationFrom trying this out a few times, neither the exact number of orders set nor the months selected seem to matter. All that matters is that the month copied has a lower number of orders than the month pasted to.

I've also experienced this.

In my case, copying from a month without orders to a month with one order caused the crash.

I'm running under Ubuntu using wine. Here's my console output:

Just had this happen to me. Bummer.

Of course, all of my military was severely wounded by a Goblin Master Thief, so I'm not particularly distressed.

I had this problem when copying from a month with 1 order to a month with 2 orders. Maybe a problem with the way orders are stored in the schedule?

Just had a similar crash, although previously pasting two orders over the top of one order worked fine - in this case, I think i was also pasting two over one.

EDIT: Hmm, reloaded the seasonal autosave and tried it - I have it reliable reproducible every time I paste a single order over two orders, but not the other way round nor when I paste single orders over single orders. I have this save available if it would help.

Just somewhat duplicated.

edited a "Train" order.
Set to sleep in barracks / lowered training number to 3
Copied and pasted multiple times with no issue.

removed an order (now shows 'No Scheduled Order')
Pasted, and crash on paste.

a clear summary would be...

Copying and pasting an empty order onto a non-empty order causes a crash

@ MooUK: Yeah, copying more orders over less works perfectly fine, it's really a case of less over more.

@ DoctorZuber: Although what you said is true (and it IS clearer) it's not exact. As MooUK pointed out, copying a month with one order and pasting it over a month with two orders also crashes the game reliably.

In all honesty, I'm much more of a stickler when it comes to precision. Sometimes clarity can suffer somewhat. My apologies.

Edit: Although now that I think about it, I guess you could put it that way - it is the pasting of an empty order over a defined one that causes the crash. If that is what you meant, DoctorZuber, then you get a double apology.

>>> Wtamer -- "eh? Okay I'm confused. what are you talking about?
Looking back over this I think I see where the confusion is. Refer to 0000083 for a much cleaner STR.

the updated STR to the best of my understanding of this issue is...

1. create squad
2. go to military and delete (x) an order
3. (c)copy this (empty) "No scheduled order" order
4. (p)paste this order onto any order that is not a (empty) "No scheduled order"

If you can reproduce this crash in some other way, by all means, tell us about it.

in the interests of SCIENCE! . . . I did go ahead and try copying other kinds of orders onto other orders. I was unable to generate a crash although admittedly I didn't really try everything.

Just noting that I experienced this crash as well, with the steps mentioned above. Reproduced it twice.

@DoctorZuber: Close. But the month you copy doesn't have to be empty, that's the thing. Let's try an example.

On the schedule screen (assuming the default Active/train alert):
1) Select the month of Hematite. Press (o) to set an order.
2) Hit (o) until you've got the train order highlighted. Press Shift-Enter to accept. Now the month of Hematite should have two orders set - Train, 10 minimum and Train, 10 minimum.
3) Select Granite and hit (c) to copy.
4) Select Hematite and hit (p). Congrats! You've just crashed Dwarf Fortress.

The months used in the example don't matter - Obsidian and Felsite will work just as well. You can also repeat step 2 as many times as desired - I've had 5 orders in a single month and it crashed just as well. The rule is (month with x orders) onto (month with x+n orders), where n>0.

For x=0, it just so happens to be the exact same STR you just gave, thus the simplest way of reproducing it.

There are a lot of different ways to induce this crash (since there doesn't SEEM to be an upper limit to the number of orders a month can have). In writing my STR, I was trying to demonstrate that without giving a rigid sequence of button presses to follow.

Okay, this one is fixed for next time.
