Summary0001228: Crashes when I try to go 'm' menu
DescriptionDwarf Fortress crashes when I hit the 'm' key, when I try to access the military tab. I start playing on 2052 Autumn autosave, and twice I have hit the key just for it to crash. I was running Dwarf Therapist 0.5.0 ( [^]) and Firefox 3.6.3 while running Dwarf Fortress. I don't know what triggered the crash, as I've been to the military tab several times before.
Steps To ReproduceThis has only occurred twice, and both after 2052 autumn came ("It is now Autumn"). I hit the 'm' key and it crashes.
Tagscrash, military screen

Try forbidding all large daggers, then wait some time till the military notices the change. See here for more info: [^]

I forbid the only large dagger in my fort, but it turns out one of my legendary axedwarf is using it. He's doing the individual drills, so I don't think he'll be dropping it soon. Is there anyway for me to drop the weapon?

Try (D)umping it.
But you don't actually need the dwarf to drop it - you just need the arsenal dwarf to assign a different weapon, so the dagger doesn't show in the military screen. Forbidding it and then waiting till the arsenal dwarf finishes Updating Squad Equipment should work.

EDIT: What helped others, though not myself, was to go to the Save folder > Raws > Objects > item_weapon.txt, looking up the large dagger and then changing [SKILL:DAGGER] to [SKILL:SWORD]


Anyways, this is a duplicate then.

Well, after sometime, I've decided to come back to Dwarf Fortress. I figured that if this last tip didn't work for my current save, might as well download 31.04 and make a new world on that.
So I changed [SKILL:DAGGER] [SKILL:SWORD] in the item_weapon.txt
And miraculously it worked.
Don't know why, don't know if we have the same problem, but here's another case that the fix worked. But I've only opened the save and hit the 'm' key, I'll see if it crashes later or not.
