I've gotten this once.

I've seen it more than once, haven't come up with any steps to reproduce yet though.

This has happened for me, but only on Windows vista. It seems fine on XP, even after spawning dozens of dwarves.

I've seen this, but can't reproduce it reliably. It occurs when done selecting items for a dwarf or creature and placing. But going back and reloading the arena and doing the exact same steps usually does not crash a second time.

cagey little bugger.

I've also had this happen once. I believe I was assigning a bronze great axe. I hit enter and it crashed.

I've also had this happen in the newest release.

I had this happen too (on win xp) when spawning the second dwarf with the following attributes/equipment:

Talented Fighter
Talented Axedwarf
Talented Swordsdwarf
Talented Dodger
Talented Armor user
Talented Shield User

Steel battle axe
steel helm
steel mail shirt
steel gloves x 2
steel chain leggings
steel high boots x 2

There was also a bronze colossus in the arena on the same team at the same time.

EDIT: Tried again. This time it didn't crash, but the icons for the dwarves were different this time. When it crashed they were the '@' icons used for caravan guards, but this time they were normal dwarves. The only other difference was that this time the dwarves were on one team, while the BC was independent.

Windows vista; I have a 100% success rate in crashing the game when attempting to spawn a dwarf in Arena mode after having played fortress mode. Arena works like a charm if I start DF and play it, but if I play fortress mode first it crashes upon creature creation, regardless of skills or equipment.
This seems to only be true of dwarfs; I can spawn any number of animals, humans, elves, etc. but now dwarfs.

Did you guys do any modding? When I tried to put in that fix to stop the dwarves from having skill/attribute rust, I got a crash when I created a dwarf in the arena.

So, modding may have something to do with it.

As for me, I reverted back, and now I'm not sure what I need to do to make the skills not rust and at the same time not have the arena crash.

I'm referring to this thread for the removal of skill rust: [^]

This one as popped up again in .11 It's intermittent however and I'm not sure whats causing it.

Edit: Um, might be a fluke or something as it seemed to stop happening, anyways.....

Reminder sent to: GRead, lordnincompoop, smjjames

Can you reproduce this crash in 31.12? According to the release notes, a similar-sounding crash was fixed: [^]

Mayday graphics, windows SDL, I checked a few times with no skill dwarves, max skill, max skill+weapon, and no skill+weapon, and it works fine.

So, green light from me for it being fixed.

Vanilla install, I can confirm that my previous steps no longer duplicate this bug as of 31.12
