Summary0006756: Crash when talking to mute creatures
DescriptionI started a conversation with a plains titan, skipped the greeting, and asked him about his struggles. I got no response, but when I tried to continue the conversation, there were no options. When I hit any +-/* the game crashed to desktop. Save file was deleted, started a new adventurer and found the same plains titan and reproduced crash.
Steps To Reproduce1) Create adventurer
2) Find titan
3) Speak to it, skip greeting
4) Say "How's life here?"
5) Press any response key
Additional InformationAttempted the same on a Minotaur, but it was Non-Hostile and held a normal conversation. Gossiped about my companions who had just fled. It's family was less friendly.

Sounds like duplicate of 0006524. Talking to entities who aren't there/can't talk back will produce a crash.

Most likely not a duplicate, since it sounds like there is someone to talk to.

I had the same crash when I tried talking to a dingo. I asked it if there were any issues, and then my next response screen made it seem like I was the one being asked. But the response list was blank, and hitting enter crashed the game.

There are similar oddities if you should out but nobody answers you. I shout a greeting, then I have to reply to my own greeting, then I say goodbye, then I have to reply to my goodbye for the conversation to end.

How odd. I can talk to crabs with no problems.

Yes. I just tried to talk to a carp. Skipped greating, asked about troubles, pressed response key, crash. I'll try to find another one and make a save.

Here it is, not a carp, but a longnose gar: [^]

Talk to it, bypass greeting, ask about troubles, hit enter to respond, crash.

I experienced this as well in 40.03, when talking to a Giant Mole.

A raven did it for me in 40.03. Crash after a few lines had been spoken (with no replies), nothing else going on at the time (nothing that I was aware of, at least).

Same crash. I asked a barn owl about any troubles. Blank response, hit enter, crash

Still happens in 40.04, a duck this time. Earlier conversations with a raven and a weasel did work out fine though, these were classified as "Encounter", so I could just ask for cease of hostilities etc., which did not result in a crash despite the animals being unable to answer.

Couln't reproduce it in 0.40.04. Maybe there is another cause?

I see this in 0.40.08. Tried talking to a troglodyte during an encounter, conversation progressed as follows:

Ask to stop hostilities -> no reply
Agree to stop fighting -> no reply
Ask about surroundings -> segfault crash

I've fixed the reported aspect, though if somebody has a "surroundings" crash, rather than a troubles/how's life here crash, there's probably still an issue.
