Summary0000406: Crash after removing barracks on weapon rack
DescriptionI've got a guy who's stuck in "Individual Combat Training". He'll take breaks to eat. I removed Training from the barracks, and removed him from the squad, but that's all he's interested in doing.

So, I decide to remove the barracks. I free the room, as soon as I exit the menu, Dwarf Frotress crashes.
Steps To ReproduceLoad game, 'q', select weapon rack for barracks, 'f', exit the menu while guy is training.

I can get it to NOT crash if I free the room while he's taking a drink or eating.

so... it only happens if he's training, not drinking or eating. I'll have to see if I can verify that, seems simple enough.

I was unable to generate a crash, here is the process I tried using. If this process is wrong, or if you can offer a better process for generating this crash, please update.

1. (b-r) build weapon rack
2. (q) select weapon rack
3. (t) select one or more squads to train here
4. Wait, verify from (u) user menu and from observation that one or more dwarves is here doing an "individual combat drill"
5. (q) select weapon rack
6. (x) remove weapon rack

Hah, I saved it after I freed the zone and he was drinking. Now about 10-20 seconds after I reload, it crashes. If I re-enable the zone, it doesn't crash. So it's looking very likely that it's this guy crashing me when he tries to train ;p

axus, it sounds like it the crash may depend on the circumstances of that save. It might be helpful if you uploaded your save to the DFFD. [^]

I did a (f)ree room, not a (x) remove weapon rack. I'll have to try that ;p

Thanks for the link. I've made an upload, it is here: [^]

Removing the weapon rack crashes ... creating a burrow away from the weapon rack and restricting him to it crashes... Maybe he knew something I didn't, because a large goblin invasion came and with his well-trained skills he was the only one who was not dead or dying at the end. I'm pretty sure that he activated with everyone else when I told his group to kill goblins. After the fight was over I cancelled the orders and he went right back to training.

I've noticed that usually the training job is yellow, same color as "No Job", but sometimes its a dark cyan color. Also, he has a tendency to hold on to alcohol barrels after he drinks, but if I mark them as forbidden eventually he'll drop them.

Another note, not sure if it helps... The goblins finally killed that fort, all the extra training did help stave them off though :) I embarked a new one, and had similar problems with people doing individual combat training over and over. I heard that it might be tied to their personality? Anyways, I (f)reed the bed that the barracks was defined on, and then everyone stopped training, and there was no crash. They seem to be not very interested in civilian jobs, but they aren't stuck in a training loop either.

Well sir, just wanted to congratulate you on have the most dwarfiest fortress I've ever seen. Not 10 seconds into loading I notice a War Gorilla and a War Leopard fight a pair of horses in your entrance. There is blood everywhere. 3 of the military captains are dead. A baby claims he is too insane to clean himself.

Well done.

I've tried all sorts of combinations and different tricks to get this dwarf to stop caring about the weapon stand. Changing squads, removing him from squads, making another barracks for him, etc., all don't work. Comically, he'll allow the room to be resized and he'll obey its size. He was training on top of the damn weapon rack when I set the size to 1 tile.

Still gonna look at it, though.
