0002359: Crash in military screen caused by killed squad
I had a squad with three soldiers which got all killed during a siege.
As they are currently not deleted from there squad list nor is the squad automatically deleted on extinction i wanted to do that myself.
But a soon as i try to select that squad the game freezes and crashes.

It's a real pain 'cause i'm not able to maintain my military in this fort anymore as i always select accidently the broken squad which leads to a crash.
I suppose:
1. Have a squad
2. Get all squad members killed
3. Try to select the squad in the military menu
4. ?????

Theres a few squad related crashes that have been fixed for .07, so it might be one of those or related to them.

To be on the safe side, you should upload the save so that Toady can take a look at it. Especially because you said that it is easily reproduceable for you.

0000378 (fixed for the next release) is a likely culprit. Does it still crash if you first forbid all the daggers on the map via the Stocks screen?

He didn't say that they were using daggers, but nice to know.

It may have more to do with the fact that dead squad members aren't removed from the squad.

Yes it was dagger related >_<

I'm sorry.

No problem, it would've been hard to guess that was the cause.
